Sure, I train Ch'ang Hon ITF style.
I got my first kub in 2000, but I got bored, so I stopped in 2001. In 2004 I picked it up again.
When I returned lots had changed, our school was changing from 'style' or bond. So when I returned I had to learn the 'sine-wave' and other stuff, but my siter got her 1st dan, so that's why I HAD to get it too haha. (she started doing taekwon-do at the age of 14, I started when I was 7 )
When I returned I wasn't that fanatic, I trained once or twice a week, sometimes I didn't train for a whole month....
But I became Dutch Tuls Champion in 2005, while I wasn't training a lot, so that got me motivated to do more.
Turning 18 also made me think it would be a good age to get my 1st dan.
I have my 1st dan since May 28th.
So technically I could have been 1st dan waaay earlier (not as fast as you got your 2nd kub), but I'm glad about the way it went.
Ok... you didn't ask for my life story sorry

hahaha no i didint but good to hear it anywayz lol, my instructor thinks i should b able to go for my blackbelt in november of 2007 so that should b cool, i do Rhee Taekwon-Do i dont no if uve heard of it b4 but we practice non-contact full power sparring and we do not enter into competition at all. It is a pure martial art thats main objective is self-defence and defence of the weak. I'd b interested to no if u have ever heard of Rhee Taekwon-Do or of it's Founder Master Chong Chul Rhee and wat is the Dutch Tuls, out of curiosity?

non-contact full power sparring

Isn't that oxymoronic? I mean I see the concept, but surely you can't actually go 'full power' if it's non-contact?
