Well.....I'm back!

Post by GangstaGuru » Wed Dec 23, 2020 2:30 am

It's been a VERY long time since I've been here, back in the original GB site days.

Some of you would have remembered me as 'gangstaguru123', obviously I've slightly altered my name. I used be fairly active on here until some incidents happened (Which I'll briefly explain in a second).

But for those who don't know me (which will certainly be quite a few of you given the time I've been away for), my name GangstaGuru (or Corey which is my real name). I'm a dude from Australia, who in most of his spare time does animal and anthropomorphic artwork, as well as being a garage musician.

I got in Ginga almost 12 years ago. The GDW anime was my first exposure to the franchise, back in the days where the episodes would be split into three parts each on Youtube XD
And I joined Ginga Board about 2 years later, and for the most part was a fairly good experience. I became less active around 2015-16. I think about a year after I made my official goodbye and I've been gone since then until now.

Why did I leave? I'll try not to get into any specific details for obvious reasons, but there was some people accusing me of being something quite ridiculous, and they were going around telling others these stupid rumours. Which led to one of the people who were told letting me know about what was happening. I had tried confronting them about it and telling them to not falsely accuse me, but they didn't. So that among some other reasons, made GB at the time a place I didn't at all feel happy to be at. So I went M.I.A. for while. Plus I was dealing with some big mental demons at the time, and me and my dad got kicked out of our house around then as well. Some of you who do remember me might unfortunately remember me being very over the top with some posts I made.

Why did I return? Because I moved on from that a long time ago. I don't like holding grudges when it isn't necessary, so I needed to let it go. It was 5 years ago when it happened, I need to be the bigger person.
I was always going to come back, but I wasn't sure when it was going to be. I think I just needed to let myself heal before I felt the time was right. I'll always be a Ginga fan, so it was kinda inevitable.

What's happened with me during that time.
- Had to live at my uncle's for 15 months, then moved into a house which I currently rent with my best friend
- Making a decent name and businees for myself as a furry artist (and normal animal art as well)
- Unfortunately lost my dad to a heart attack late last year
- Graduated as a graphic designer earlier this year
- Will be buying my first home and moving interstate early next year

So yeah.....I'm back ^.^ Will be good to hear from some of you again

As soon as I saw your name in the active members list I said "Wait... is that gangstaguru123 from the old board???" Lol.

Glad you're back : D

I don't know if we ever interacted on the old board (my name was Ginga densetsu lover back then) but I do remember you :bon1:
