Have you ever found yourself not recognizing someone you are so close to that it takes you a minute to realize who the person is? Everyone does that, of course.
How about you not recognizing a part of your past after a long year of being with the platform? Because there's going to be a shock to you and others when it's been a year and a few months since the site went online, and I joined here on the 17th of March last year. My first post, besides an introduction post, was a fanfiction chapter of a story I was never able to finish.
Until today, I wasn't able to continue down the path I desired in those days, but thanks to read.cash, I was able to head down the path of being able to transact securely without any requirement to my ID, and a way for me to handle my funds without any danger of losing them.
Because of read.cash, I was introduced to Bitcoin Cash in full. Because of this site's main goal of onboarding new users to Bitcoin Cash by writing articles, I am now who I am, and I'm thankful for it.
I still haven't exactly changed, I still don't finish my writings most of the time but then I have found myself a better-tuned critical eye on things, pointing out what is wrong and attempting to educate what is the right thing to actually know.
I was also able to earn, learn, and I was able to tell what I know from what I learned, and if you looked at the articles I have, they're well-built informal pieces that tell a part of myself as well as the lesson I wish to impart.
Today, though? I don't think I have anything to depart. It's still two weeks and a few days before my actual 1st anniversary on this site.
I've been trying to write something in the meantime, and I'm not too sure how I can continue it. But then, I have written these articles by making it all in one go and making sure that things will make sense afterward.
So, as much as I want to say anything good or anything, I suppose I will have to make since I am very thankful to the users of this site, to the influencers of Bitcoin Cash, to the developers and the writers, and I am thankful for everything that I have ever encountered after I registered to this site.
Before I finish off this article, I will just have to say why the title is "Positive Unrecognition".
You see, when you don't recognize yourself, and your former self is actually someone you never wanted to be now, that is a positive. Usually, this is better experienced when you have certainly moved to a better position in life, but then I haven't really moved from where I was right now. I'm just seeing things that I never saw, and glad that most of them are no longer with me.
Well... this is where I get off.
This is Rowan, signing off.
