My nation turns 5 today.
Rather then being some whiny kid who makes a stupid pointless forum topic, I figured I'd make a stupid pointless blog entry.
5 years is alot of time, and I could have done alot with the time I've spent on CN, but I haven't, and I'm not crying over it. I've enjoyed my time here, and I plan to enjoy my time here into the forseeable future.
I've made a reasonable number of friends, and perhaps an unreasonable number of enemies. It seemed that up until about a year ago, nobody knew who I was, and even now, I'm not sure how many of you recognize my username when you see it. Its neither here or there, and it doesn't bother me whether people like me, hate me, or don't know who I am.
I'm still around after 5 years with a single nation. Not many can say they are even close to that. Whether its an achievement or a failure for not getting out while I could, I don't know.
I know you don't care about the shout-outs, but frankly, I don't care that you don't care. Below are some of the people who have influenced me and been good friends over the past 5 years. I doubt many of them will even read this, as 5 years is a long time, you talk with various people, and some move on and you've got nothing but the memories.
The times change, the people change, but the roles don't.
Starcraftmazter, Solidus117, Ruggerdawg, Socom, Neo Anglia, Razorade, Medix, Judge X, TCK, KOwens06, R3nowned, Husker, Ezequiel, and LittleRena.
These individuals are the key on how I've moved from what I was to what I am. I am the product of my circumstances, I am the company I keep. I'm sure I've forgotten some, but these ones that were on the top of my mind.
I didn't expect here to be here for 5 years when I started playing, I had no idea what to expect. How long I'll be here into the future (or any of us will be here) is unknown. Whether it'll be another year, another two, three, or even another 5, the details are insignificant so long as you make the most out of every day you have.
So I guess that is that. Screw you guys.
