MY GOODNESS I NEED TO GET ON HERE MORE.

I'm not posting this in the anniversary thread, since today isn't an anniversary for me, but my tenth FG anniversary is in seven months. And wow, how much I've changed as a person in that time.

I was gonna post a bug gushy thing here about how much FG and my time here has meant to me, but I can't even think of how to properly articulate my sentiments. I love you all, and I'm so happy to know all of you. You guys are awesome!

^ Ikr, it's actually kind of amazing!

After so many years of almost complete silence, we're all slowly starting to trickle back and say hello.

Well. I peeked. To what purpose, Odin only knows. (And holy cannoli that's a lot of posts)

Y'know...it'd be cool to get the old gang back together. Kiera, Miasaki, Helen, heck even Alanna. Funny, I have a good portion of you lot on Facebook, but we hardly talk. That's partly my fault. I've become a bit of an antisocial bugger, well, I always was. Maybe because typing was easier than talking?

I think about that moment, this day, and I wonder if I would change it. How would things be? Probably about the same. Would I be better off? Maybe...but then...what about Roxy? And Colin and Fill-In (well, actually you go back before then, so you good, bruh). The stories in general? Would I have still written?

For the record, I officially change my answer. I'm taking over the Greek Isles instead of Florida. 8)

you know what guys? it's really strange but i feel kind of homeless in terms of having an internet community. this place used to be it, i checked it every day after school and stayed on until late at night.

then it was tumblr, and i got really popular over there with my poetry and it's just weird now because i don't speak to some of the people i used to hang out with over there bc we fell out. i don't want to post there anymore because i don't want them having access to me in any way.

i want to start over somehow but the thought of doing so makes me feel really tired. i have friends offline and everything, but i feel like i've always made deeper connections with my online friends. right now i kind of feel like i'm just wandering, passing through.

it's strange to be here again at this point. i think what i've learned is that home is a fluid concept, not a constant.

Some would say home is the place you've just left.

Captain Nemo's motto was mobilis in mobili, moving in the ever moving. We constantly change if only in a million tiny ways that appear subtle to us but on a grand tapestry paint quite the picture....or that's just me obfuscating.

You've always got a place here, even if the winds take you to another port. :)

You couldn't have explained this in any better way, I feel the exact way.
