Unhappy This REALLY got me thinking...



The other day my Social Studies teacher put up some new posters... (I know, its like the END of the year! ) one in particular caught my eye... it said:

"Twenty years from now, it won't matter what shoes you wore, how your hair looked, or what kind of jeans you bought. What will matter is what you learned and how you used it."

and I thought to myself: Wow! This makes PERFECT sense!

And here is how WI/WW comes in:
I know that many people, kids and adults alike (me included ) think that WI and WW are AWESOME sites! But last night I got lost deep in thought and asked myself: In twenty years, will it really matter how many posts I had, how much rep I recieved, what my WI status was, how popular I was on here, how many WW pets I had, if I was an Insider Insider or not, how many rare items I had on WW, what rating did my threads get? No... (I know there are many "What ifs" but lets not focus on those )

My point is that Webkinz Insider and Webkinz World are GREAT past-times, but someday we'll get tired of it and eventually leave (I have considered leaving before) and it makes me sad to think that all our hard work will be gone...

This REALLY hit me and I guess it might sound kinda ironic coming from me, (*looks over at posts/rep/status*) but I really think that some of us (once again, me included) have gotten so caught up in this and have REALLY come a long way and I will be very sorry for when the day comes that I decide to leave... I really wish that I could have thought of this sooner so that I wouldn't have wasted (maybe wasted isn't the right word... ) so much time here on WI...
*edit* Don't get me wrong, I had TONS of fun on here!




No! Please don't attack me for saying this! *raises white flag*
But please, nicely post your thoughts on this...
Thank you for taking the time to read this

Omigosh. You are totally right. What an eye opener! It's so obvious yet it never struck me that way.

I agree. I have seen the exact same poster. I am not going to be able to stand myself when I am sick of here, all my time and hard work down the drain.

Ok this is very strange my Social Studies Teacher put up that poster today, ironic

Anyway, I totally agree. What seems like a big deal now (rep, clothes, friends, popularity, thread ratings EVERYTHING) won't seem like such a big deal in 20 years! We do have to remember that (I'm being honest here ) It doesn't matter as much what people online think of you what people in *real* life do Great reminder!
