I haven’t touched Hopscotch since 8th grade, which was a year ago.
I haven’t touched this forum for a good 7 months.
Why have I come back?
I came back because I wanted to look back at the old memories I had when it was just me and my passion for Hopscotch. Back when I didn’t care about staying on top of trends. Those times when it could just be me and others doing something we were passionate about was mostly during the time I used Hopscotch.
But I felt that this time also came with some bad things. Throughout this time, I felt that I was underappreciated and that…nobody really cared about me, nobody really could connect with me. That struck me very hard, even as a person who didn’t really care about being trendy. To remain an unknown even after a year of dedication was my fear and what I believed to be the truth.
I sought to be those people who had many fans and many people who would arrive at their topics and chat and whatnot, all of my attempts ending with no luck. I didn’t know why these people were popular, and it made my more upset than ever. To be unable to find out the secrets of being popular made me feel very ashamed).
However, I feel that, after a few months of me being gone, I’ll be able to view this forum from a different, less biased perspective. I’ll be able to see all that’s changed in this community over these 7 months, the new popular coders and whatnot.
But, I do really want to connect with people, because that’s something I felt I missed during my past experience here. If you want to talk with me, tag me or come to my general topic! I’ll make sure to talk with others, too.
(PS I don’t know anything about Rawrbear coming back, neither he nor I have mentioned it)
