“My friend found my bdsm gear. Needless to say, apples to apples that evening was eventful.”
And all I wanna listen to is sad music. I broke up with Ashleigh a few weeks ago, and I have never had to do anything harder in my life. I just wanna fly solo for a while. Is that so much to ask? She thinks I have a drug problem, and that hurts to know, because it hurts her so much and I know she’s scared for me. But my loved ones tend to be scared for me. I’m just a scary kinda guy, I guess. I suppose most everything will turn out okay. Everything tends to turn out okay.
Oh yeah, and Ashleigh? I still love you.
Man, now I’m wistful. It’s sad, in a way, but I think it’s lovely that I got to spend a few years with all of my friends online. So many of them are gone now, this must be what graduating high school feels like. So many people that together made a place I loved, a community. Grif, Alenth, Daman, Thor, Selene, and a slew of others. This one Polish guy, GodItself, was always my favorite. He was adorable, I tell you. I got my current internet moniker from this one IRC room, ComradePyro. My chosen name when I came to the internet was Pyrorex, and in IRC I used Pyro. So along comes this guy, a few years ago, by the name of ExtraRussian. He’s Russian. Short story made a little shorter, he called me Comrade Pyro, and since I was a little rusfag fanboy I loved it, and I’ve had it ever since. I think it’s pretty cool. Anyway, don’t mind me, I’m just thinking of happy days spent wasting time. I always kinda knew we’d all go our different ways, but boy it sure makes me sad to think about it now. Just because I knew it would happen doesn’t mean I wanted it to. This place, this wild and crazy internet and the people in it, meant a lot to me, and it still does. So here’s to you, my comrades. Many of you will never read this, in fact of most of you, but thank you. Thank you for giving me so many wonderful memories. Thank you for keeping me sane in the swamps of north Florida. Thank you for being my absolutely fantastic friends. Even you, TrouserDemon.
Man, I’m so gay.
