I didn't really think I changed much until I started thinking back. Like a lot of people here I started editing and joined the Org when I was 13/14. I always thought I was a pretty nice person overall but after looking back at old comments on youtube and such it made me realize how immature you are at that kind of age. I got upset pretty easily sometimes and was lazy when given advice on how to improve a video. I was also a bit of a ass at times but i think we all were here and there.
Overall I think I got more patient, I'm willing to take advice a lot more seriously and I am thankful for any and all memories I make. When your younger you tend to take the little everyday moments for granted.
I got started after randomly stumbling across some AMVs on youtube and me and a friend at the time started editing with WMM making multiple shitty AMVs a week. Eventually I stumbled across Magnus on youtube who I only knew as Zetzu at the time. After messaging him on youtube he added me on MSN IM and helped me get sony vegas and showed me a few basic things. He introduced me to a lot of people I wish I could still talk to today, as well as introducing me to this site. I personally believe without his help I wouldn't be where I am today because I probably would have stopped editing within a month. I wish I could have thanked him.
There are a couple memories that stand more than anything else. First was one night on msn or skype(can't remember which we were using at this point) I was in a call with Magnus and Neverend and we decided to mess around and basically do some IC's using the most overused bands as sources. After countless hours we did videos with linkin park, sum 41, and slipknot. The whole time messing around on calls just having a blast. We added some other people as we went on and the cans of brisk ice tea I was drinking started to consume my desk. Needless to say it is one of my favorite memories. The second was when I met SheeGee, but that is obvious since we have been dating for over 5 years now. I am really lucky I met her, it has changed my life a lot and it wouldn't be the same without her.
Without getting involved into AMVs I never would have met my fiancee and wouldn't be the person I am today. I learned a lot from the people here. Not just how to edit but how to be more mature.(although sometimes I don't know if that's shown here xP) I feel like without getting involved in this hobby we all share my life would be completely different and I'm glad I got the chance to a part of this community for as long as I have been.
Now the ball's in your court, how have you grown?
