Another Year Down

Yes, it is that special day again: my 5 year anniversary here in the ScrumbleShip community.

I suppose I shouldn't have written my heart out one year ago because I am not quite sure what to say here... Some quick updates: I will be graduating with my associate's degree at the end of this year (just barely after I turn 18), and I still attribute my success to finding this game. Like I said last year, I began to join more IRC channels after I found #scrumbleship, and I actually got to meet some very good IRC friends earlier this year on a trip to Detroit (I am in NJ, it was a two-hour flight out of Philly). It's funny how you can know someone for 5 years and never meet them in person, but they were great. I am very fortunate that I found you guys and them, and I hope that someday all of us in the ScrumbleShip community will get to meet up, share stories, and hang out :)

Some of the other "originals," like Wazubaba, Insolent, and Walloping, have all hit their 5-year mark (darn, they beat me!), and Oebele, thatrussiangamer, and I am sure a few others are following very close behind. A huge congrats are due to you guys as well, especially those who I still keep in touch with (looking at you Wazubaba), I hope you are all doing well IRL and are checking on our beloved game often! If you aren't already, stop into IRC so we can catch up!

And with that, I will be sitting at home one year from now writing another anniversary post, thinking again about how even the smallest things can have the biggest impact on your life.

Cheers,
Jacob
