So it's my fifth bulbaversary today

Rate this Entry
God that makes me feel old.

When I joined the site, I was a freshman in college. Now I'm a college graduate who's moving to his second full-time job in March, which also comes with a move to New York City. Which will be fun.

In five years I've gone from regular newbie user, to blog celebrity, to RP mod, to RP and blog mod, to super moderator, to RP section head... then I resigned and became a no-name and then recently came back to modding RP as just a minion mod.

Five years, 32,908 forum posts and 549 blog entries. I shudder to think what the grand total of words I've typed on this site (and the associated Skype and IRC chatrooms) is. Definitely in the millions. Could have finished an entire series of novels with that.

What a long strange road it's been. But I wouldn't have done it any other way (well okay, there are a few things that I would have done differently). But what's important is that I've learned a lot of things from my time on staff (especially as a supermod and section head) and I've made a ton of friends that I truly cherish having in my life.

So that's about it. Just reflecting on things a little bit. A milestone like a fifth anniversary tends to do that to you. Especially someone like me who never really hits a number like that anywhere.
