Three (or is it four?) years later

Well I never thought I'd log in here again, let alone post something. And honestly, for the most part I had forgotten about my time here, as much as a person could forget a span of seven years.á

Something drew me back though. No, not to return as a regular user, but to apologize. I've changed dramatically in the last few years. Since my childish tirade I've moved 1500 miles away from my family, fallen in love, and I'm about to be a husband and step father. I guess I just couldn't let my old blog post stand anymore.á

My leaving blog was 100% accurate to the way I saw the events at the time. The way my immature, condescending, snobbish hipster eyes saw them. Looking back on it now I see how 100% inaccurate it was.á

I also know I owe personal apologies to Frenchy, Caramel and Marchoso. Who knows if they're still around, but if they are: I don't ask you to forgive me, but I do hope you understand when I say I'm sorry. I was hurtful, I was spiteful, but worst of all, I was young. Leaving UG with fire and brimstone was not the first, nor the last time I made bridge burning a hobby of mine.á

I'm also sorry to the people who read my post and took it seriously. Yes, at the time I meant it seriously, but anyone familiar with the sharp lense of reason could see through it for what it was: an immature kid who felt like he was second rate.

I've learned a lot over the last áyears, some of it from UG. The way I see it, you don't learn to be a better person by being the good guy. That's not an excuse, I only mean I wouldn't be the man I am today if I weren't the asshole kid I was then.á

I'm sorry.á

On a half assed side note before I log out for a few more years: My life and attitude have changed much for the better since 2009. I'm currently the drummer for an awesome punk band, I've released a solo album, I've scored two short films (one receiving acclaim specifically for my music from Craig Brewer, director of the Footloose remake) and I'm scoring two more at the moment. I also work 40 hours a week, have a beautiful fiancÚ with an amazing daughter. I mow the lawn and take out the trash, and I enjoy the quiet evenings with a glass of Guinness and some William Blake.

That's just for those who might have wondered where I've been.

I always loved that some people actually took your infamous leaving blog as gospel, without even considering any other possible side to the story. :haha:
