i bought the game a day before it turned to beta so iv been around for quite awhile. been on many servers, built many things, had bad experiences (brother's friends destroying my stuff in our servers), but also had good experiences.
out of all the games iv played minecraft might have been the on that has influenced my life the most. helped me get used to jerks (brother's friends), helped me find the furry fandom, and first time i actually started to talk to people online on different servers.
i have been thinking about playing it again but currently my house is being remodeled so its difficult to use my computer, also have been dealing with school which prevents me from maintaining a server for friends to play on.
