I don't know if this is the right place, but I thought that, given the erratic methods of updating our info pages, we should post here when we update, and list what's new.

"scratches head"

"pats head"

i've read your journal entry and my friend, welcome to adulthood! it all goes downhill from here. once you're starting to see things in all their crudeness, you'll never be able to care again as you used to when you were but a young pup.

i too miss my old friends. but what hurts more is seeing them grow apart as real, hard life sets it. it wasn't supposed to be like that when we were young.

smile for the little things and be thankful for them.:) (a little pimping never hurt anyone)

speaking of updates, i've updated my journal too, in case you want to know more about me. pity we don't have a chat. :(

That is some journal entry... And I can feel myself getting there too. Sigh...

Anyway, since user pages are never looked at at TsfE, the Update notice seems to be a good idea. I don't think I'll ever post something worth announcing, but that's my problem. ;)

Been there...

There are, in effect, two puberty's (puberties?)

The physical one, you go through at the start of the teen years, and a mental/emotional one at the end.

You reconsider everything in your life; where you're going, why you're going, and how you're getting there. Your teen friends have or are going through the same process, so withdraw, yet you haven't sufficiently matured to make friends with those in adulthood yet.

Part of this process makes you more independent, in how you think, act, which naturally leads to you spending less time with your family. You cease to be part of the "family unit", and become just you.

For what it's worth, it passes. Once you have established who the adult you will be, then you can start to reconnect with those around you properly. Others will do the same. I keep in contact with those I knew as a teenager, but my closest friends I have are those I've made since passing twenty.

With those friends, I have everything I had before, and more. We can relax, chill out, act like idiots, talk, discuss philosophy, hug, and roll about on the floor laughing. Guys, girls, cats, whoever :P

Though it might seem like everything has gone (and occasionally still does), it will all return, with more besides. Use this time to make certain of your ideals and goals, and build a firm personality foundation with which to approach the rest of your life.

Good to hear reassurance from the elders =p
