I came to this site when I was about 16. I was dancing about 14 hours a week, 7 differant styles and I was in school. Now, I only dance one hour a week and only modern/contemporary. I have changed jobs three times and no longer am studying.

I can't believe the amount of people I have met on DDN, and how much they have help[ed me to become the person I am today.

For the most part, I can thank Erin (Odessa). Her always upbeat and witty posts intreiged me to PM her one day and we hit it off. She would stay up til 2am listening to me talk about my problems, cheer me up with rude MSN emoticons and always know the right thing to say to slap the sense back in me.

I have had Britney (POT), J (Sparkz), Simone (OliveMe), Tiegan (balletbabe_teigs), Lauren (cheeznoz), Christina (Tomato) and glitterfary (who's real name shall remain confidential ;) hehe), as well as so many more people who even just went out of their way to say Hi in a PM.

I have had my mind opened up to differant religions and cultures, I have spoken to people about their countries, and celebrations.

I have become a more caring person, realising everyones life has thier ups and downs. I know a lot fo you are "Its the internet, who gives a crap?" Well, I do really, because just because I met these people on the net, doesn't mean I don't care about them. I have been lucky enough to meet Lauren, and will be meeting Erin in 2 weeks.

So, cherish the friends you make on DDN, because it can be a wonderful thing and last forever.
