Huh. It's been one year now since I registered here on GA. Like so many of us, I too lurked around for a little while before decided to register for the forums on here. Also like so many of us, I too was drawn here by finding Q's Second Shot posted elsewhere, getting impatient, and coming over here to read the rest. (I've seen quite a few people mention this in chat, in case anyone doesn't believe me. )
It feels...I dunno...odd, that it's been one year exactly as of today. In one way, I can't believe one year has now passed since the day I registered here. In another way...it almost feels like, "What? It's only been one year now? Really?" I guess I feel like that, because of all the people I've encountered in that year's span, most of whom have been around here much longer than me, and several of whom I talk to pretty regularly around here. I'm in a bit of a rush (going to a movie night with friends after I post this), so I won't take the time to go through all the names, but...y'all know who you are.
It also feels odd reflecting on that one year since...because if you'd have told me what I'd get up to in that time, I might have given you a look like this: - and just stare at you like, "What??" From being a regular poster on several well-followed stories, to getting into writing myself (oh yeah *smacks forehead* ...latest is due Tuesday for the anthology! ), to becoming a beta reader for an Admin's foray into writing, to meeting a couple other members in person...
I'll say it, it's been a great year here on GA. So... here's to another great year around these parts. And more.
