No, I don't know what this proves. Maybe just that I'm very impatient. Or that a privilege-granting fairy may have taken pity on me (THANK YOU).

A little bit ago I made a comment about how jealous I was to see ye new authors positively flaunting your status upgrade (none of you were actually doing that). It was all I could do not to tell you to CHECK YOUR PRIVILEGE. Then I just looked again - CONSTANT VIGILANCE - lo and behold, I can post to Groupthink now! I have all the happiness. A great end to a great day.

I lurked here for a long time (isn't it so weird that there are probably hundreds of creepers reading about all the mundane and not-so-mundane details of our lives?) and part of one of my New Year's resolutions was to muster the courage to participate. Like many of you lovely people, I've been dealing with Unemployment and his drinkin' buddies, Depression and Anxiety. They're fucking assholes, I tell ya, and I've been feeling extremely lonely. I told myself I needed to put myself out there, try new things, meet new people, and that included trying to wedge myself into this little squalorly corner of the world wide web. And I did! And I've enjoyed every minute of my time here so far. I LIT-RALLY don't know what I would do without ya some days, so thanks guys and gals.

Anyway, that's all, folks. I can't even begin to imagine what nonsense I will try to get you to lay your eyeballs on, but we shall see! I try to be entertaining, kind, and quick with a GIF that will light up your spliff. Those will be my top priorities. Here's to you, Groupthink!
