For some reason I was thinking about drawing on a tablet like I used to when I was
younger and I used this website for drawing mostly. In my teen years this website
opened up friendships, drawing advancements and it was a safe place I could gather my
thoughts as a teenager.
Now, my life is very different than it was when I used to venture on this lovely
I'm presently 24 years old, and engaged to a boy I met at 17 years old in highschool;
we've been together for 7 years. He's a wonderful person who I've seen go from a 17
year old boy to an almost 25 year old man who's a professional firefighter. I myself
am a Registered Practical Nurse and Im currently pursuing the mental health field.
I've come a long way from the kid I was in 2007 when I joined this site. I have 3 of
the same friends from highschool who I still hold dear... Abi, Eric, and Jacquie.
They're the people who've been there since I was a kid and they're still here today.
I've made some new friends as an adult, and they're gonna be lifelong friends I'm
sure, but those 3 will always stick out as my rocks.... and all these years later Im
thankful to still call them my dearest friends.
I'm happy Ive stumbled across my old page (and actually knew my password) because I
can relive my old thoughts, memories and art in its purest form. I regret to say I
don't draw like I used to... had I continued I feel I could have become a decent
artist. Although I doodle from time to time I do miss my tablet art.
Anyhow, this diary entry is perhaps to my younger self... as a point that things get
better, you're gonna grow up and you're gonna get lucky enough to find a partner who
gets you for the weird you, the sad you and the happy you. You're gonna meet 1 or 2
wrong guys who you swear is "the one" but... somehow at the young age of 17 years old
you'll meet the man you're gonna marry and hes actually "the one"...you're not
perfect but you're the right couple for each other; you compromise, work and care
enough for one another to always be realistic. Its my own fairytale.. we work for and
with each other, we're a team that might bicker here and there but always resolves
issues and always works towards a common goal. For that, I am thankful.
I'm happy to be where I am today, I'm thankful for all the hurdles and the
friendships gained/lost... everything has had a purpose to get me to who/where I am
I hope I read this entry again in another 10 years time and things are the same...but
better. Here;s hoping I can keep this lovely diary alive with the promise of more
entries that contribute to the happiness I feel at the time.
