Here's to the days of lore, when I joined the wiki and hated GB for his overbearing, perfectionist traits. When Sparrowsong was a good admin and I was a nobody.
Here's to the days of Random Parties on Shistar's blogs, where a picture of a duck floated around for a while because y'all were weird like that.
Here's to Warriors of the Lake. If that's not an indicator of how much I've grown, I don't know what is.
Here's to all the people who helped me through cancer in any way possible, and to Stareh's mom, who offered to send me a card. May StarClan bless Stareh's mom.
Here's to the days on the IRC, the time spent writing stories, songfics, and angry blogs. Here's to trusting the wiki for a weekend vacation and coming back to find it in complete c…Read more >
So I left rather abruptly, and to be truthful I forgot the reasons why... that doesn't matter.
In the weeks since May 15 (I looked up the date of when I left), I have found myself. Completely. I have learned to love myself. I have learned to love life and all it has to offer. I've found my true friends. I've found love (true love? we'll see...). I've found solutions.
See, my depression (yes, I was depressed) crippled me. Close to when I left, I realized that people were insulting me-- and I could no longer accept it. The insults came from all directions, all walks of life, intentionally and unintentionally. I have never blamed and will never blame a singular person.
Now I'm basically going to go through my list above and describe in detail wh…Read more >
I feel miserable here.
And my life is miserable and I need to focus on myself.
I don't want you guys to ask questions.
And for God's sake don't screw this place up.
Forest out. For good.Read more >
Today I was redoing my userpage (which you can obviously see isn't done and probably never will be), attempting to write another chapter of Ocean and Sky like a good little admin, and basically trying to do admin things. I ended up clicking on my userpage and looking at the information I have at the top and I realized that today was April 21, 2013. I joined the wiki on April 21, 2009.
Well that can only mean one thing.
I have been on the wiki for four years.

So this blog is a sad one, specifically about the Boston Marathon on 15 April 2013. I'll ask this question straight out: when has working out ever been more dangerous??
My cousin called me last night (today is 16 April) and told me that she was actually a finish line volunteer at the Marathon yesterday. To which I said, "Please tell me what you saw."
She was highly distressed, but it was a firsthand account so here's what it was like on the front line:
My cousin was one of the volunteers at the end of the finish line. She was one of those people that was standing at a table with water bottles all over it, and her job was to hand the water bottles out. Pretty simple.Read more >
She said she never saw the first blast, but was actually bending down to open …
