I can't believe nearly 3 years ago I made a TSR account asking for help for my GCSE, and 3 years later so much has happened in my life, just weird looking back knowing that this account was the peace before the storm lol, I can also see the idiotic views I used to post on this account change with life experience lol damn

Well in the serious way it helped me to get a training contract with a law firm.

In actuality it's meant my whole sleep cycle has shifted, my self worth is now defined wholly by the rep system and I speak more with TSR users than with my real life friends.

This is an interesting thread.

I made my account back in 2011.. and I'm in that year where 2011 = year 11, 2012 = year 12. So I was in my final year of GCSEs. I used TSR pretty effectively whilst in school and made the most of other people's knowledge and resources. So now I'm in the final year of my degree ;_;

I don't really post much on here anymore. But this thread just made me realise how much I've changed since school!

I've matured a bit more but not much of a massive difference anywhere.

I'll have been on here for three years next month and since then I've got over being housebound from panic attacks but my OCD has gotten worse, I'm engaged now to the person I was with when I made the account and the wedding is mostly all planned, I'm still ginger but going blonde on Tuesday and I have two more cats than I did when I first signed up but I also lost my dog and another cat

My rep was for the positive aspects of the post, and because of your two more cats

I created this account in 2012, 4 years ago. I was in year 10 at the time, and I'm at uni now. To be honest my A levels seem like forever ago now, never mind year 10. I think year 10 me would be a little disappointed if she could see my now.

When I made this account eight years ago (that awful Gordon Brown was in Downing Street) I was at Uni. I now work, am married to an amazing man and have one child.

I've become more mature and know about a lot more things now (joined when I was 14)

Some people have been here around 10 years though, so much of their life would've have changed!

I joined 3 years and 2 days ago to get GCSE help I think. And also because I didn't have much friends back then and thought I could use tsr as a way of socialising lol.

I met the man I'm in love with 18 months ago on this site it was long distance for the first year, but now we see each other every day as we live together he means absolutely everything to me, he has changed me in so many ways, and these changes are for the good! He's helped me become a calm person, he's helped me know what it feels like to be happy and comfortable. I never thought I'd find love on this site!

Other members on this site have taught me not to take everything at face value, things are completely different on the inside than they appear to be on the outside.

Im a whole lot maturer now
