Two days ago was my two year anniversary on the site even though I've only been active for around nine months now. I think I've changed a lot in those nine months and this site contributed no small part to that.
Also, my birthday is in five days so I'm expecting a shit ton of presents from you guys :p
Congrats, onto the next!
Crazy how much you can improve in terms of:
A) Rhetorical skill (understanding a flawed argument and making a less flawed argument as well)
B) Writing Ability
In a relatively short time at CYS, hey? And it's not even the writing you do in storygames so much as the writing you do in the forums.
Cool Playa! My Two-Year-iversary was two days ago as well! Weird :P But I'm still happy for you and me!
My 4 year anniversary is in a few months, though I've only been active for about a year now.
Also no one here gave me anything on my birthday :(
Though, I too think I've changed quite a bit (for the better), since becoming active on the site.
Blows my mind that you've had an account since 2008!
Yeah, I found the site way back when, then played a few games, then left. Years later, had the urge to read choose your own adventure style stories, found this site again, and realized I had been here before. Was pretty cool.
That actually happened to me as well in 2004 / 2005. Which is why if you go far enough back on old storygames there's sometimes alternate JJJ accounts commenting on shit (like an imbecile).
When I was first joined, if I look at what I posted and think about what I wrote . . . I can't help but want to classify myself as a troll.
I've been here for less than two years and I feel the same way.
I think everyone does that on this site, either that or it just blows our minds that we have a permanent log of our active maturing. Either way, congrats
C-C-C-C-C-OMBO BREAKER!!!! (In all seriousness congrats)
