the lost tribe of the BBB
Hey friends, it's been a long time, so I figured I'd drop in.
Spending a lot more time on LJ these days to feed my Supernatural addiction (OMG SAM. I have a thing for nerdy bad boys, even today :3), and I wanted to see just what was up with everyone.
I graduate with a B.S. in Fire and Safety Engineering Technology with a concentration in Arson Investigation this spring, which is pretty exciting in and of itself, but on top of that, I have some pretty stellar news.
This past September the man I'd been dating for over three years asked me to marry him (wooooooot) and we're getting married in April of '10 (Five years together).
You might say that he liked it, so he put a ring on it. ;)
Every once in a while I think back to the BBB and my young/early years on the internet and I remember it being such a positive experience. Even when I was so young you guys never really talked down to me, and it always felt like community. My mom came to enjoy your company too, and it was a family experience (silly as that sounds). We never really were a typical fan board and it was good, because there's only so much Spike is so hot that can be said. Granted it's a lot, and it's true, but part of why I loved the forum so much was because there were other things. So while I may spend most of my time on the Something Awful forums these days, and while the Buffy fandom has kind of faded to times past (I love it still, believe me, but I don't obsess as I once did), I look back on those times fondly, even today. I wanted to express my gratitude for helping me not turn into the typical myspacer of my generation, and for being excellent fun to talk to.
So how are you guys doing? How's things? Or as they say in the great state of Kentucky (ugh can't wait to be far far from here) "How is?"
