It’s been a long time, obviously. I’d be surprised if anybody ever reads this, but on the slight chance that some of my old Club Penguin friends check this out, I thought it would be nice to give some updates on how things have been going since my resignation.
It’s honestly pretty funny looking back on my mentality when I started this blog. Club Penguin seemed like a timeless fad that I would never grow out of. It was not only a way to have fun, but just an easy time-killer when I was bored. I had originally thought I would have limitless potential for posting. I thought I’d never run out of things to say or things to write. I always wondered why people would resign from their CP Blogs considering this seemingly endless amount of activity that you could constantly report on. Because of this, I promised myself I wouldn’t resign; it just didn’t make any sense to me.
I lied to myself, and I’m glad I did.
I eventually just got so stressed out from not posting that I felt like I was letting everyone down who read this blog. But this blog died along with the banning of my first penguin, PerPear. For those who don’t know, I was a dumb, stupid kid who thought it would be funny to find ways around cussing in-game, and so I would put stuff like “F U C K,” which it wouldn’t detect because of the spaces. I don’t know if that still works, but evidently an actual mod caught me because I was banned for 72 hours for that. Then permanently banned for advertising this blog sometime later.
I had very few readers after that, as I had slowly decreased in my amount of posts. I was, as I said, stressed out because I didn’t want to let anyone down. Resigning relieved me of the stress because nobody had anything to expect of me.
Now, here I am, more than 2 years later, telling my story. I miss my friends. I miss the game. But it’ll never be the same again considering the huge age gap that’s happened. I wanna talk to my friend’s again, but it’s at least 3 years since I had a real conversation with them, namely Fosters1537 and YellowCrown. But I guess I deserve it. It’s my own fault.
And now, the way my life has turned is also very much my own fault.
I used to be, basically, a child prodigy. I don’t mean to be cocky, I’m just being honest in the same way that I’m being honest that I am no longer anything special. Ever since last year, my studies have decreased. It wasn’t too bad last year, but it was beginning. Everything has gotten worse this year though. Luckily, I managed to pass all of my classes for the first semester (I’ve never failed a class before), but I got the first D I’ve ever gotten in any class. And I’m disgusted with myself. I don’t know if I’m being overly dramatic about it because I’ve always had high expectations for myself or if I really do need help. But I’m hoping that next semester, which begins in a little over a week, will go much better.
My life is pretty boring, honestly. I browse reddit most of the day, sometimes 4chan, and play some video games, but that’s about it.
And somehow I expect to go to college and major in film to write screenplays and direct movies, which is something I have no experience with at all and am not making any effort to experience myself in. But at least I can admit that it’s my own fault.
I’ve still got my whole life ahead of me. I know I may look back on this and laugh at how stressed I was over nothing, but I may also regret not trying harder earlier. It could make a huge difference, and I’m not doing anything to prepare myself.
Well, that’s my story. Things really aren’t terrible, but they could be better, and I could feel much better.
I guess what I’m saying is that I miss the carefree days of hanging out with my friends on Club Penguin. I miss the days when I didn’t have anything to worry about it. This game meant so much to me, and now it can’t do a thing to me anymore.
I guess it’s time to go now. Thanks for reading. If any of my old friends are reading this, please comment, tell me how you’re doing. I’d love to at least catch up, but I feel too bad to contact you guys on my own because of my immense absence. But hopefully you’ll be understanding about it. I miss those days back then.
And I hope you do too,
PS: I’m not gonna proofread this, so if I said some things really stupid-sounding or whatever, then oh well, haha.
EDIT: I just played on CP for the first time in ages, and it nearly brought tears to my eyes seeing this:
I know only a few people are doing it, but I’m proud and amazed that there are still people trying to tip the iceberg. After all these years that the tradition started it’s STILL around. That’s incredible. I played this game for the first time seven years ago, and I always remember there being iceberg-tipping parties, but never did I think it would pass on to basically what is the next generation of players. Just absolutely incredible in my mind.
