I feel old

Just had a bit of a realization today. I first joined the online Pokémon in late 1999. I was still in High School at the time. I would've been only 14 (barely) at the time. Now, I'm 23. I teach at university. I've been in this fandom for about 4/10 of my life.
I've never felt more than now just how appropriate the name I picked for myself then, "Archaic", is. Though I still see one person from back then in real life, "The Mysterious Blue Hiker" (who's a student at the university I teach at, though not in the same department, and who I usually run into at local conventions), there's no one in the online fandom who's still around from then, except me.
....damn, I feel old.
