Phew, it's been a long way since January 3rd, when I posted my introductory thread, and an even longer way since I joined.
1k posts is a pretty big milestone, ngl.
And yes...against @Raj's wishes of making my 1k post really awesome with a speech and shoutouts and everything...I think I'm just going to let it come. (lol)
It might be on a thread that isn't even mine about a topic I didn't write about. But to me, it's the uncertainty, the randomness of it all that's beautiful. (proceed to shed a tear)
It'll make for a good post to look back on, I can promise myself that.
Shoutouts make me feel awkward because a) I'm normally too insignificant to be really included in them or b) I feel bad if I miss someone while writing a whole bunch, but here we gooooooo. Some shoutouts for some significant members that I have or have not known for a long time (in no particular order):
I'm not naturally a sappy girl (and you're not exactly a sappy guy), but-
I love you, man. If it doesn't look like I'm engrossed in every word you say, then I'm telling you right now, I am, and I retain your every word of wisdom. You tell me that everything you say comes out of your ass half the time but I'm seriously calling bullshit. You're not a man of many words but whenever you say things it's worthy of listening to.
I don't know how I stepped under your wing but I'm glad I did, and one of my fears is letting you down.
@Latte I love you as well. <3 I know things might be a little different lately with us for a little bit, since you're a big girl with work and her own personal issues to overcome (on top of just helping the community, irl and online). But please don't forget me. We have four months of awesome memories so here's to four more. You're wonderful and beautiful and strong, inside and out.
@Mod, Mod, Mod. cK's biggest mystery.
Geez, from Poo-Stink to Alphonso to My Precious Daughter , you drive me nuts, Dad.
You're hilarious and witty and smart and whenever you 'thanks' one of my posts, I feel more accomplished every day. (lol)
I'm so sorry I accidentally deleted your epic 4 part PM about high school, university, medical school, etc, but just know that all the time taken into typing that isn't going to waste. I kept everything in mind and am now more realistic about my dreams.
Not to mention, along with being super funny, you sober up pretty fast. Your advice is fuckin' KILLER. It doesn't have to relate to me, but it all helps -indirectly- in my own life.
You must be really rad irl.
@Raj we haven't known each other for a long time but we know each other's real names, know and relate to each of our struggles online and offline, chatted for hours on end, and overall our personalities clicked comfortably. I think you're really rad and fun to talk to. I hope we both get the balls to talk to girls easier, LOL.
@Blythe even though you've moved on from Neo onto better things, I still stalk your Subeta profile pretty much every single day. haaaahaaa
You're super chill even about the whole freezing (or so I interpreted, you could have been throwing shit for all I know); you're super nice; and you're super cute. You're an awesome customiser, too. & Thank you for having faith in my art. xoxo
@Daenerys I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU AND HOW YOU SAVED MY ASS ON THAT ENGLISH ESSAY. SERIOUSLY. While I dropped back down to where I started in the course (73%; I got a 33% on my exam, oops ), my mark could have been a lot lower if it weren't for the 85% you helped me get for my summative essay. You have a good head on your shoulders, Lorrie. Thank you so much <3
@Soul AHHH I LOVE YOUR VOICE. Anyways, I'm glad you're my friend because you inspire me to follow my faith a bit more closely than I used to.
@Toasted you've come a long way, but I'm really happy that you put your real life in front of everything else, since you've gotten fucked over by Neopets (illegally and legally) wayy too many times. My prayers go with you and your lovely daughter Zoey, I hope this is the dawn of better things to come.
@Mojo you're SO CUTE AH MA GAD. Your smile, your dimples, your laugh, your voice, your obsession with Disney...<3 Perf. Seriously though who the heck puts double n's in Jordann, LOL <33
@Whispers you're so cute aw <33 /protects you from Jolz's perviness
@Jolz "NO I DO NOT SMOKE WEED"
Your voice booms like Thor, bro. It's sick and scares me the tiniest bit. Keep up the awesome music (I'm legitly jealous of your guitar skills) as well and say hi to Kayse for me
Your kids will be as legendary as Will Smith's, seriously, holy shit.
@Wrath HOW DID I FORGET YOU WHAT THE FUCK.
I'm rushing this now so that you dont feel forgotten for long but I wish you well on your journey to growing into a better person.
@ Everyone; you're all amazing!!!! All of you make up the community and the community here is probably the best. I DO love you all, it's just I had more to say about these guys ^ or had some sort of history with them
I might add on more, I might be missing people.
