Once again I remind myself the day I signed up to this website and to be honest I'm surprised I can still remember it at this point. I didn't even realise it was 9/11 yesterday until halfway through the day when others mentioned it. So what can I say about my 9th year on NG over the last 12 months? There's one simple word that describes my time on NG from last 12th September to now: Decline.
If you regularly browse on the BBS even to this day, you'll know how little I've been active overall. I've hardly posted as much and I'm sure I've only done a minimal amount of modding this year so really I shouldn't have my mod status anymore if things go this way for me. To be honest, there's been a few things that have triggered the downhill of my contributions on here and they mostly relate to the real world.
You may or may not know that I had a girlfriend earlier on this year. This was sadly short lived and when it came back to single life, it made me rethink what I was doing with my spare time. I felt I was less interested in being active on this site so I put most of my activities on the back seat and spent my free time on other things. Although most of my internet time is spent on social networks (i.e. Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr), it's not entirely a bad call since being more active on Tumblr has found myself with interesting new people with some I've even met in the outside world and I have some plans to meet other people from there in the near-future.
This year alone I've been thinking to myself how much it sucks to be stuck at home doing pretty much nothing. I'm jobless for the most part and it's not easy to find ways to get myself out of the house with the exception of Wednesdays and Saturdays where I'm seeing my friends as usual but recently I have motivated myself to go out on Friday night more often. I wasn't too sure of it at first since I hardly knew anyone that would be going anywhere but as I acquired some more connections, it's been easier to socialise and now I simply can't deal with being stuck at home on a Friday night anymore. I just enjoy myself talking to the old and the new at the local rock bar and as time progresses I'm bound to know more great people!
I suppose what I'm trying to say here is how I feel I'm getting somewhere in life when I'm out and about in the outside world. Being stuck at home just feels bleak and I need to make great use out of my free time. Sadly Newgrounds can offer very little for me now and as much as I wanted to have a good decade on here, it gets harder and harder to maintain activity and by this time next year I'll probably even struggle to do my daily deposits. If it happens that I find myself with very little time and motivation on here then it must mean I'm getting too occupied with other things in life which is always a good thing. Even if I go elsewhere, those that wish to remain in contact with me can still do whether it's PM on here, Tumblr, Facebook or Twitter. All my contacts are seen on the userpage so feel free to add me on any of them.
