My name is Cyrus. I am 18 years old at the time of writing. I’ve been on the internet since 2015. It doesn't seem like that long ago, but its been around 8 years!
8 years. 2,588 days.
It’s been a long journey.
I was unsupervised. I had to do it behind my parents' back, since they would get pissed if I had access to the outside world. I started on QuoteV, roleplaying with other strangers with our muses. I lived by some rules.
Do not give out your age.
You are not you.
You don't just roleplay as your muse; you roleplay as yourself.
I was ashamed to be my true self. I pretended to be someone else; not just a completely different person. Just a better version of me. Little did I know that I had DID. That explains why I HAD to go by a different name, why I felt like a different person, even in front of my family. I learned how to code on QuoteV.
BAck then I told everyone I was from a certain state I was actually from and still live in today. But I can't do that nowadays.
You talk about your favorite pizza place and you get doxxed.
I used to go on 4chan. I was THERE when they found Shia LaBeouf’s flag in the middle of fucking nowhere. I wish I could go back in time and shake the younger me's shoulders, tell that naive little girl to stay away and just watch AMVs on youtube like a normal kid. But I can't.
The internet nowadays is both more and less safe than it was. Use a VPN. Be careful.
These days i spent going through amino, QuoteV, 4chan. They gave me trauma i can never recover from. But god damn i had fun.
This is the mindset i have when it comes to the net nowadays; stop caring. Curate your experience. Make a neocities site! If you cant code, it okay! Make a space for you. Itll be amazing. I trust you!
