This is a bit of a late response but I don't visit here too much, and it was an interesting topic.

This place started when I was 16 so in my final year of Secondary School in the UK (idk what that translates to as far as American schools go). Going through 2015 I was definitely at probably the worst point in my life, due to doing Sixth Form and studyingig subjects I didn't want to do and wasn't very good at - in retrospect I was definitely a lot edgier back then and stuff but honestly I was just kinda miserable. I'd always been the kind of person who did well in school without really trying so when I got to some level of higher education and did have to try, I didn't do very well and ended up failing hard. It sucked but it was ultimately good I think, as it definitely gave me more motivation to make a better attempt at it again - but that time I ended up going to college for IT and took a liking to 3D modelling and gamedev.

Throughout college and university after it, it felt like things definitely started to get a lot better and I think that was a combination of doing a subject I enjoyed and cared about and being surrounded by people who I had stuff in common with and I actually liked IRL. Overall I guess my reliance on the internet for socialisation sort of lessened which was definitely a good thing, and helped me grow my social skills a lot which I think was super valuable. In uni itself I managed to integrate well into a solid group of friends I see fairly regularly still, and made some super close friends I can't ever really imagine stopping talking to which was similarly good due to having some people IRL I can trust. I also ended up doing group projects where I was the lead artist and had to present to a full lecture hall of 200+ people which again was a huge deal for me in building my soft skills stuff. I sometimes feel like I might have spent too much time in uni working and not enough time relaxing, but it ended up paying off in allowing me to get a job in my field that I enjoy three months after graduating, and I recently got told they wanna keep me on permanently. It's still sort of surreal to think that I'm now able to live on my own with one of my friends just on my own work, and I'm paying my own way for stuff.

So I guess really I ended up changing for the better overall, particularly from the ages of 19-21. I have a decent job, a solid group of friends and I get to live away from my parents without issue at 23, which is something I never I would have expected I'd be able to do when this site began.  For me I think my biggest issue was that throughout my childhood/teenage years I never really had anyone around me who I really "got" or who got me, so I never really had that much in the way of people to be friends with or relate to IRL (living in the country away from anyone else was also a big thing as well). Going to uni and being around people with similar interests to me was a huge deal for me.

Throughout 2019-2020 I ended up losing quite a bit of weight too just by starting to regulate what I eat more and that was going pretty well, but then I ended up moving back in with my parents for a few months and eating whatever they were having so I'm mostly back to where I was I think, but I've been working on getting that going again now so that's also good.

I don't really have many pictures of me from a few years ago because I'm not much a picture person but here's one I took recently before i had my hair cut back to shoulder length-ish
