I'm 20, and I still play Neopets, not as avidly as I did 8 years ago, but still, every now and then I pop on. I love Neopets
When I FIRST started playing Neopets, I didn't want to go to school the next day, so I pretended to be sick. My first day skipping school, lol.
(My 2nd, and LAST time skipping school was Junior year of high school after some *ahem* late night "studying" with my best friend and about 20 of our "closest" friends.... study psychology of course... the effects of alcohol on the central nervous system.
my father didn't approve. after that, I made sure I made it to class... no matter WHAT, and THATS another story... lol)
