R.I.P Omegle

I don’t know what to do anymore. Omegle was my life! So what if there was criminal activity? I need friends. Omegle was my world. I could be whoever I wanted to be on there. I need my life back.  

I have no clue exactly when my world ended, time has lost its track for me. I just remember talking with an interesting friend group in Ohio that sang multiple songs for me that I did not ask for, and then it all went dark. I thought my laptop just died and I needed to charge it for the 4th time that day, but no – it was much worse. 

I turned my laptop back on to reveal my lock screen of screenshots with all my Omegle friends. I went to find my beloved app, but it wasn’t there. I started hyperventilating a bit but decided not to freak out. There was no talk of Omegle leaving, so why should I think it’s gone? I went to the app store to open it from there, nothing. I restarted my computer again and again and again, and nothing. I reached out to all my Omegle friends, nothing – although I haven’t heard from them in a while (or ever).  

I couldn’t believe it at first – I was in denial. I thought to myself, “Hey, you deserve a break anyway. Go get a drink or snack and come back in a bit and everything will be fine!” Everything was not fine. I tried everything to pass the time; I went to the bathroom, got a snack, went outside and touched the grass, and I even talked to my parents! Something was definitely wrong.  

I ended up going to bed, but when I woke up, I knew it was gone. All of the friends and traumatic experiences I had, gone. Nothing was the same. I currently am writing an essay to the founder on why it should be brought back. I don’t know how I will ever move on.
