What the Switch Means to Me

Back in July, I went on Reddit for the very first time. After hearing some positive remarks from a friend, I thought I give it a chance. It wasn't long until I stumbled upon r/NintendoNX. Ever since my first encounter, I have never felt so at place. I was, by no means, an active user– I didn't know how to be! However, I hung onto every post with stary eyes and a hope for… TOMORROW! This group of amazing users, as well as fantastic Mods, helped me to feel so welcomed. After breaking up with my girlfriend of over a year and a half, I felt a little down in the dumps. It was a struggle to keep myself from getting upset over it, and I hated that lonely feeling. You know what picked me up? Checking that subreddit. It may sound silly, but it's true. I will be forever grateful.

When the Switch was unveiled, it was a bitter sweet feeling. Sweet for the concrete evidence, and bitter for moving to a new subreddit. It's not like I was afraid of the change, I was excited to be back with everyone over here! Just the pure nostalgia feeling is what made me bitter. And I'm sure you all can agree, the investment we all put into that subreddit is stuff of legends!! r/NintendoNX will never die in my eyes.

And now, here I am. With one top comment under my belt, as well as a //totally// foreseen speculation about the Jimmy Fallon show reveal (yea, that was me), I feel more connected than ever. I freaking love this subreddit, and all the people in it. I am stoked to see what the future has in store for us.

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you all. At a time when I needed it most, I felt so welcomed by this very driven community. Even when I did nothing, it was always a great feeling to just be a part of something. I am forever grateful.

See you all Tomorrow!!
