Thumbs up Returning user (formerly Rockboy)

Hey there! I'm John. I started posting at CGR in 2003 back when I was a lonely homeschooler looking for friends. I went by "Rockboy" and "Rattletrapmusic" until I apparently requested that my name be changed to "Drew Peterson" for some odd reason. This community had been a wonderful help to me during those dark years and I have always had a special place in my heart for it.

Due to my gluttony for punishment I logged into my CGR account in order to review my post history and feast upon my angsty teenage cringe from 14 years ago. While the cringe within my post history ended up being quite delicious, I was reminded about what a great community CGR was (and presumably is). I'm looking forward to meeting the new batch of CGR-ers and also seeing if any of my old pals are still lurking.

Welcome back. I joined CGR in 2003 as an angsty 33 year old and have never left.

That's awesome. I'm sure that, given the opportunity, I can still deliver the angst.

Were you always Leboman or did you go by a different moniker at any point?

I was Leboman when I first signed up. Over the course of thirteen years I have also been Role Modlin, Mr. RM, Evil, Lee, and a few others whenever Bill got bored.

Howdy, dude.

I joined in 2004 as Thrash, but recently took on the awesome moniker of Uptown Thrunk!

Not sure if we interacted much.

I sucked pretty bad back then. Apparently I thought it was super cool to misspell everything...

I have almost exclusively kept this online moniker here.

I have been around for a really long time. I now have two daughters and work as an RN in the psych ward. I am pretty sure one day they are going to take my badge and keys.

Can't say I remember you, but hey, there were more of us around back then. I was but a young, angsty, lonely teenager, and now I'm in a fulfilling job with a wedding in two weeks. Life can change pretty radically in a decade or so. Welcome back!

I guess I've always been athanatos, but you joined like 5 years before I did.

It's good to meet you! Perhaps you might be the kind of person here who might know how I can go about getting my name changed.

Bill...you might not remember me at all but I think we had some chats via PM or AIM. I think you helped me a lot through my teenage crap. It appears you also gave me crap.

Pleasure to meet you. It's crazy to think I joined this forum more than half my life ago. D:

Thanks again, everyone, for all of the welcome messages.

I hope I helped. What's funny to me is my job these days is helping people in ways that are not dissimilar from talking to people in advice and PMs over the years.

And yeah, I had to give a lot of people crap for things. I don't actually like enforcing rules at all as I tend to be a bit of a rule-bender/breaker. But yeah, I have changed quite a bit too.

If you need someone to change your username, I'm certain Bill could help out there too

Stampede of Angry Wombats or Dizzy Chinchilla has a nice ring to it don't you think?
