It really is strange how I used to come to this place everyday. Each day at school, I would look forward to the moment when I could rush home and get on my computer to see what Sal's was up to. I used this place as an outlet, as well as an escape from everyday life where I could really just interact with other interesting people. I came to this site as one of Sal's youngest members at age 12, and now I'm about to graduate high school and enter college.
So for me, it's sad to see now in 2013 that everything I enjoyed three-five years ago has disappeared. The friendships that I created, the threads I was a part of, the community... the magic of it all is gone. Even though I'm just perfectly fine and capable of moving on from all of that, this idea of everything I was a part of being gone makes me incredibly nostalgic.
It saddens me to realize that I used to talk with some of the people from this site everyday, people from places in the world that I may never visit. Kinda sad that they were once friends. Oh well, I'll cherish the memories that I have of Sal's and everything that I was a part of, from the fake GF thread to IRC to Debate Room to just hanging out with a good group of guys. Hopefully, somewhere out there, everyone else is likely doing the same.
reminiscin bout sals tmz, vera, fake hot girl thread, dragon sal z, gillis crew, populus, isketch/minigolf nights, sal's newspaper responsibilities, etc.
