    10? years?

    Hey guys and gals.

    I'm not 100% certain, but i think next week I'm coming up to my 10 year anniversary in DtK. Kwik mafs could be wrong.

    I didn't really believe it till I sat back and thought about what I've done since I first joined. And it sounds about right.

    I can't really celebrate the milestone truly, as I've been pretty inactive for a long time. I don't even think I have counterstrike installed anymore.

    But I have made friends here that I'm still in contact with on a daily basis for some (not delta, he just followed me home lost one night and won't leave me alone - its different)

    With 2020 being such a taxing year for many and it finally coming to an end - I thought I'd do a mini recap (won't bore you guys with too many details)

    To start with, I'd like to list the players I've met IRL because of this community platform, and for most in the list hold a true friendship with.

    Becca - not as scary in real life, and didn't try to stab me in the nuts!
    Delta - Trying to keep this short and positive, damn this is hard . . . that's also what he said the last time I stayed there?
    Tonka - DANCE BITCH! seriously awesome dancer haha, many laughs were had.
    Aido - One day I will break into his house and steal all his fancy toys.
    Koala - A LOT shorter than you'd think (like . . . . a lot) drives like a menace.
    Ajay - Taller than you'd think and has a dinosaur costume (picture evidence)
    You/Hershal - Gives the best hugs and has a real penguin friend (true story)
    Kuro - Dude is like 8 foot tall and an absolute pleasant person to be around
    Denathen - He's also quiet in real life and walks questionably fast. Why does he have so many different jobs?
    Chase - Met this guy a few times now, the laughter never stops. Mega chungus.
    some dude chase invited who I've forgotten about but he's here somewhere too.

    There could be more, but its been a long year and my brain hurts. Remind me and i shall update


    My next quik list is major things in my life that have changed since joining.

    I've moved around states and jobs, had a daughter whos 9 now, my son who some of you may recall talking to is now 12 and going to high school this year. Yes, this does make me feel old....er . . . .shhhhh

    I used to play inline hockey as a kid till the skating rink closed down in the 90's, and there's been a hole in my heard ever since. So 3 years ago i decided to get back into it. I had no friends in the town i was in and it just felt right despite not skating for 15 years. Made some really great friends and met hundreds of entertaining people in the process and its something I'll never ever regret doing. Even got my team name tattooed on my arm, shame I'm not in that team any more :'D ah well
    This year I've decided to go all in and play ice hockey as well, I start in march and I'm very excited.

    With any luck, 2021 will be the year that I actually buy a house, I'll be 100% debt free in a month or two and I finally feel like life is starting to become mine for the first time in a very long time.

    I used DtK to escape my realities for many years (didn't realize it myself until very recently if I'm being honest) And I'd imagine that its similar for a lot of people. When shit gets you down, there's always people here to help pick you back up.
    I thought my mental health was pretty solid, 2020 I think has proved that wrong haha.
    My Uncle was diagnosed with a rare terminal brain disease, this was only a few weeks ago and he was given 3 months, but it's looking more likely to be a few weeks at best at this rate.
    On top of this, just a chain of bad news of friends and family members with illness' of all sorts, heart attacks, cancer, just a barrage of shit one after the other.

    So here is a toast, to the end of 2020 and to a better 2021 for all.

    Hope you all have had a jolly Christmas and a banging new year!

    Sorry for my ramblings, could go for hours I think haha.
    Peace.
