I just wanted to take a moment to sincerely thank those of you who had given me a hard time on this forum. You in part have inspired me to seek further education. I had some intent to further myself by attending a college, but you guys really made me think about why I wasn't properly expressing my points. As a result I'm now attending college to further my career towards Engineering, but also to develop in other areas I felt I may have been lacking.

As part of my first semester in college I am taking a developmental course on writing, Writing for College II. Usually I would just write what comes to mind at the moment, but in just these past two weeks I'm starting to learn why that maybe causing confusion among my readers. I'm learning about maintaining focus and coherence in a paragraph. I'm finding it much more difficult to write then I previously assumed and realize my writing before was reckless and incoherent. For that I apologize.

I do however think a few of you could stand to be a bit nicer to people. But know that at least one of your victims had taken it upon himself to rise to your challenges and seeks to become a better person as a result.

And once you master sophistry, your points and ideals will change to that of the cynical nature of this forum.

You weren't supposed to post until I found a picture!

I will attempt to assist your educational pursuits by being as dickish as humanly possible from here on out.

Also, congratulations on your pursuit of engineering. May your warp cores never breach and your Jeffrey's tubes be well maintained... nudge nudge, wink wink.

Awww you guys don't remember me? O well I haven't been posting for some time now so I don't expect you to.

Just thought it would be nice to show you how every encounter can influence the future of everyone we meet. I don't attribute the entire decision to go to college on my interactions with you guys. But I certainly give you guys credit for making me think a little more on what about me needs improvement. I honestly don't mind that some of you were/are dicks because more often then not you're giving constructive criticism that I can use.
