First off, I owe this site so much.
Without its existence I'd have never met a few valuable friends who have stuck by me these past few years.
Secondly, I'd have never gotten into art. Which I'd like to post here as proof of my improvement, if only to myself.

If anyone else has improvements of anything they've done over the years, feel free to share! It could be writing samples, drawings, social interactions. Maybe even math equations. Anything at all. ^^

It's great to see your art progressing, Star. You're an amazing artist. c:

As for how this site has helped me.. I have friends I never would have met, and I never would have gotten into forums. From those various friends, I have met even more amazing people and have been helped on my journey to self-discovery.
My maturity has improved somewhat, but for the most part, I have been able to socialize with the types of people who simply did not exist in my real life.
I've also made myself draw, however, my best examples are traditional and I have no scanner.
I never would have learned to love dinosaurs. Unfortunately, I cannot contact Grep42, as she quit this forum a long time ago, but I'm sure if I could, we would have a great time discussing how to enslave humanity with our army of velociraptors.
To give you an idea of the extent of my love for the prehistoric beasties, I am actively interested in pursuing a career in Paleontology.

There are countless others, but I did a bad doodle of my persona to say thanks. (i say doodle for a reason.. this is not the full extent of my drawing abilities. at all.)

Been a long, long time since I've stopped by the WEO forums. I guess I have a lot that's improved in my life too.

Sorry for gigantic images.

I'm doing a lot better in general, more healthy, less of a recluse, more confident. I don't spend 24/7 on my computer like I used to. Moved out of a bad living situation and into a healthier environment. School's going better, making straight A's and all that jazz.

I lost a lot of things and people in the past few years, gained many too. Trying to get some of it all back. But I'm really thankful for where I am, even if it was hard to get here. I'd do it all again if I had to.

Sorry to bump this but seeing as there is almost no activity on the forums anymore, it's kind of hard not to. :\
I just wanted to post on my improvements in writing! It's not that big but certainly a lot better.

2011, from the North Cascades National Park RP:
Past Hoopy wrote:miley walked to a carcass and grabbed a piece and ran. then stopped and she dug a small hole large enough for a wolf to fit in. and she sat inside eating her meat,

(omg did I really end a sentence with a comma? .-.)
2016:
Present Day Hoopy wrote:She limped into the room, a nervous smile plastered on her face. Despite hoping no one would notice her, standing in a corner with a prosthetic leg makes you stick out like a sore thumb. A boy made his way over to her, as he was walking she took note of a few, quick observations. He looks just as nervous as I do...is that a prosthetic- "Umm...Hi." He said flashing a smile. Two words came to mind, "awkward flirt." She stared at him trying to make him uncomfortable. Darn, why is this guy so persistent? I can't be that interesting.


Lol, not that big of a difference, my vocabulary is still not that good and I still use lots of commas. xD (this is also just a blurb) I'm working on it though. I have to write a 10-page short story for English so I'll have to get better. At least my friend says he'll buy my book when it comes out. xDD

I've also significantly improved on my people skills. I have conversations with people at my school. I have made 2 really good friends. (a guy and a girl wow i'm branching out) I do presentations better. I still am a shy introvert but my friends respect that and don't put me into situations I have trouble with with unlike previous friends.
