    Grown so much over the past 5 years since I joined s80. Early 2015 I was merely a volunteer trying to keep busy and played sports locally. Never even travelled outside of my state.

    Now I've travelled, represented my state in different sports, found love and gone back to study!

    I was a 16 year old high school student when I joined SL.

    Now I’m here on S80, not as active as I want, but here. I’m engaged now, and I am in my last year of uni.

    In 2011 I was in school, mostly listening to reel rap, not having seen much of the world

    Now; Traveled a lot, my music (and other artforms) taste grew a lot, got a fulltime job, my own apartment, play football again/picked up running. So yeah lots has changed lol but thats not really weird

    Cool thread btw!

    Jeez, how long ago was D12 World/RB? I feel like I still lived with my parents then which would put it at LEAST 15 years ago.

    In that time, I've met and married my wife, had 1 kid and about to add a second to the world an day now. Been on our first cruise and subsequently 4 after that. Had the pleasure of seeing over 20 different countries and won some career changing awards at work.

    A very productive 15+ year stretch! Here's to the next 15.

    d---, it's really inspiring to read all those stories. I joined S80 in 2016 shortly before TLOP dropped and I was about to graduate from school. Now 4 years later, I'm studying electronics and information technology and doing pretty well. In those 4 years I got my drivers license, worked 9 months as a paramedic and met a lot of people, some of them becoming my closest friends. Have been some bad times too, struggling with mental health and all that but we still ballin. I'm 22 right now.

    Pretty sure when I joined the rb family I was interning at the baseball hall of fame and was in college, dreaming of my future

    Joined five years ago when I would have been 21 but I lurked Studio Leaks a fair bit for probably a year at least. Rent my own place, work full-time and studying online part-time currently. Back then? Eh...

    Joined after J Cole Nation went down back in Winter of 2014

    Was just earning my Bachelors in Psych at that point. Right in the middle of SXN80's heyday in 2016 I got my Master's in School Psych and found a job right away working in NYC. They drove me nuts and nearly broke me last year.

    Built a house in Mexico, slowly in the process of building one close to my neighborhood here. Found an even better job as a therapist in a local university. Life has it's twists and turns but it's all about navigating through them, it's been fun however checking back here habitually.

    Must of been my junior of hs when I started posting on RB, it’s been about a decade since then. Have found great success in all aspects of my life, kicked old habits and without being too modest I’m living my best life!

    It’s weird to reflect, but I joined here as a typical broke college kid with a lame major relying on his dad, and currently I’m almost 30, work as a windows system engineer, legitimately thinking of buying a house.
