I may not use DA nearly as much as I once did, but I've gotta admit that this mobile app is pretty slick. Tumblr is fun but it can get kind of overwhelming after a while, and it just doesn't have the same community feeling DA did back in the good old days. I still remember being 14, spending hours on here and the Ganon's Tower Forums, talking with friends occasionally on MSN, playing games like Diablo II and Quake 3, discovering music on Youtube... It's funny to think that nearly 8 years have passed since then. I've got friends who I talk to now on Skype and other services, my forums of choice are WrongPlanet and VOGONS, and I'm pretty much constantly connected to everything thanks to my smartphone, but the internet just doesn't have the same magic to it now that it once did. Maybe it's just the nostalgia goggles, but I do know that the programs I used back then were generally less annoying, and that I wasn't constantly at someone's beck and call. I more or less just talked to people when I felt like it, and I liked that.
I think everyone pines for simpler times at some point in their lives, and to be honest, I've kind of been doing it for most of my life.
Idk, being a teenager sucked, and being a young adult sucks too. Right now we're living in a really strange time, and while the future seems to hold a lot, there's very little I'm excited for, other than driverless cars or the apartment I will be moving into soon. Life goes on, and I hope that someday, I'll find an actual calling in life, something I'm good at that I won't get sick of doing every single day.
Gah, I hate it when I get all nostalgic like this. I get all depressed for no good reason when I know I have other things I should be doing. >.<
