I hardly ever use my blog at all, and really try to avoid posting about relatively useless things such as this - But I figured I would make an exception to both of the above today.
As of today (the 21st), it's been 8 years since I joined the most awesome web site on the internet... Putting this in perspective, I've been coming here nearly every day for a fairly significant percentage of my life.
Minus a year's hiatus back in 2007-2008, my regular daily routine has pretty much remained static for years:
6:00PM - Wake up
6:05PM - Log into DF... Check major moderation tasks
6:30PM - Take a shower, get ready for work
6:50PM - Get back on DF... Read new posts until time to leave for work
7:30PM - Drive to work
7:50PM - Smoke a cigarette or two before work, while reading DF from cell
8:00PM - 5:15AM - Work until break - Spend break smoking and screwing around on DF on my phone (repeat 3 more times)
7:00AM - Get off work... drive home... change clothes, etc.
7:30AM - Unwind by doing some moderation tasks, maybe reply to some threads if I feel like it, etc...
10:00AM - Go to sleep.
Breaking it down like this really makes it sound like I'm a total DF addict, and have no other life outside the forum (believe it or not, I do manage to get out and maintain a social life on my days off!) - But even though the forum isn't my life, it still remains a fairly significant part of my life and is something that I care very much about and will always be very important to me.
I know this isn't the most awesome blog post in the world... I mainly just wanted to say here's to 8 great years, with hopefully many more to come.
