Two years already.

Oh wow. Time flies by, doesn't it?
So I have officially been at Bulbagarden Forums for two years. Throughout those years, I have made many friendships and bonds that will last a lifetime, and some rivalries that will last that long too. But before I get onto that kind of stuff, let's go back two years and see what I was up to...
Summer of 2010- AWWWW YEAH. Just graduated the 8th grade, not ready for High school at all. Swim was only a heavenly twice a week, and I didn't have a job until July. So nice.
I was on my netbook one day, searching around the internet for Pokemon stuff. I was on Bulbapedia, looking through random pages. On the sidebar thing, I notice a link that said "Bulbagarden Forums". I click it, of course. After looking around for about three minutes, I ask my mom if I could join.
Two years before that, when I was in 6th grade, I asked her if I could join Bulba also; she gave me a firm no. I was sad, and moved on.
I asked her the question: She said yes. I immediately signed up and gave myself my weird username: Milkapoke.
A combination of Miltank, Milking, and Pokemon, my username is awesome. Pronounced Milk-A-Poke-ee, most people pronounce it Milk-A-Poke because they don't know about the elongated "E" thing. I have never changed my username once, and I never will.
So I was originally here for trading. It seems like EVERYONE here originally starts with trading Pokemon, right? Anyhoo, after about three months of trading, Bulba was starting to bore me.
One random night in August or so, I was searching around the forums, when I saw a thread called "Random Messages". I clicked on the last page, and saw what was going on: One of the Scarlet girls was giving out soda. Being the person I am, I asked for a soda (Yes, this happened over the internet) on Random Messages.
That changed my life essentially for forever.
I quickly became a regular- Posting frequently, making friends, all of that. Random Messages 6 rolled by, and before I knew it, I was the Top Poster.
Since Random Messages 6, I've been the Top Poster: RM6, RM7, RM8, and now Tea in the Garden. I really don't know how; I'm gone a lot, and sometimes I post once or twice when I'm here for a good thirty minutes.
I've sword to myself that I have to post here every day, no matter what. I did when I was in Mexico. I did when I was in Arizona. I did when I went to South Carolina. I always have to. I am committed to this place, dammit D:<
For me, there are two types of people on Bulba: One is where you trade Pokemon for a few months, then you fizzle out and leave. The other is when you branch of into different parts of the forum and take in that full package of a Forum.
Dear Aizen, I love you guys. You're better than my friends in real life. I have too many people to thank this time around, but you guys know who you are. Everyone in Tea of the Garden, Random Messages Veterans, people I VM, all of that. Thank you so much guys- You all have had an impact on me ;w; Eeeaugh, I'm tearing up in real life.
I will comfortably stay here for many years to come. Why would I leave? Possibly if some new bullshit rule comes into play, but then I don't think I'll leave then.
As of that, I will leave you all a song that describes my feelings of Bulba.
Yes, this describes my feelings for Bulba. The lyrics are in the description, if you are wondering P:
Now I will go and post in Tea in the Garden, have Breakfast, and organize my Pokemon cards.
I find it so magical that right when my second year here rolled around, I got back into the roots of where my Pokemon passion came from: The cards...
