Hi, you can call me Phreak. Expect me to be, and please don't be offended, if I'm blunt or laconic. I really would prefer to keep my anonymity for the time that I'm here, so if you'd like to address me, I would politely request you address me as Phreak. In this introduction, I'm going to outline my background, my reason for coming here, the reason for my stay, and my unique future plans here.I'm more or less a stranger to this community.While I have one person significant to me in my life that is within this kind of maple art creation community, they don't know that I'm here (yet). Actually, they're why I'm here, and it's not a very happy reason - but I'll explain why next. I have the software that I need and important resources such as tutorials and maps already provided to me. However, this person has many friends here, too, so if we find ourselves interacting, me seeming antisocial or not wanting to build ties isn't me being rude - It's me attempting to be removed and esoteric, and while I wish I didn't have to be, it's sadly a requirement. TL;DR - I'm a stranger, but I won't be rude. I hope to stay that way.I'm here on a personal vendetta. Telling this story clearly while retaining anonymity is difficult. For months, a person very near to me supported me in wanting to get into this. I started, but barely, because I had my time divided up among many talents. Then, when they heard from me that I was actually starting out, they suddenly refused to support me in my endeavor. This person would be considered successful in a certain type of maple art creation, so their words impacted me a lot, and my reason for being here is part out of spite for their words, and part to reaffirm to myself to myself. TL;DR - I'm on a mission to prove myself to one person - myself. I only plan to stay long enough. After one year, or after significant milestone accomplishments, I (sadly) intend to leave this community just as suddenly as I came. My only reason for being here is personal fullfilment; I don't want recognition, I need it, my reason for being here is to determine my worth and ability. I can't wait to learn new things and meet new people, but just like everything else, this must eventually come to an end. I hope, by the end of one year, I've made connections, learned new things, proved myself, and proved others wrong. TL;DR - After exactly one year, I'm going to leave, for better or for worse. I sincerely hope that you will help me on my way to success - I'm going to need all the help I can get. ...Phreak out?
