A lot has happened since I sent that application and got in. I only participated in season two but I still remember the building, the ending, the apocalypse, it was great. I've never been one that checks the forums everyday really, but from time to time I remember what a great time I had here building, fighting, even writing stories of my travels through the land. And with the fondness of that remembrance I come back to see how things are doing. I admit that seeing the change of the welcome page did spook me this one last time though, fortunately I saw that the forums were still up.

Anyways, indeed so much has passed, in 20 days I'll be turning 28... since last time I played here I think I have changed jobs, started what actually now looks like a good professional career, looking at studying a masters abroad now... so much time, and so many things that have happened!

Wow, that post from gigyas got me really rambling, I feel old now... ha...

So... good to see everybody is still here, don't know if you remember me though... haha

Cheers

Huh, are we doing reminiscing and contemplating since the app days??? Just thought I'd see if anyone was still around here, for old times sake.

I honestly don't feel like I've changed much. People say that I've gotten more modest with myself and my life and the people in it. People say that I've gotten thin.

But people have also said that I've lost the spark in my eyes. But I'm sure that bound to happen when someone battles periods of starvation and thirst and homelessness in a country where I'm the gringo (I'm in Mexico right now).

I don't even remember much of Season 2. While I applied with the intention of just exploring the world and I helped start up Mill-Ajru, life at the restaurant got busier and busier, and well, I just stopped being able to play. There's just so much that I wish I didn't miss. Played a bit of 2.5, but being part of the Mavi, it was Hand-Harvesting Wheat Simulator 2013.

I still think about playing Minecraft or just gaming in general. I don't have a computer anymore, nor readily available access to internet nor electricity. I still thinking about building a tree sky high and making my home in it. It's something to hope for. It's is slightly obsessive, but it's a good thing to have nowadays.

Looking at my app now, it feels like a wolf in sheep's clothes. I see mistakes here and there, and it doesn't look too bad, but it doesn't feel honest. I don't know why.

It's nice to know that people are still here. Maybe my life will turn around by the time Season 3 happens. I don't have much time left at the cafe that I'm using internet for, so I'll hop off for now. If anyone sees Krakatoah, please tell him that I said hi.

I'm still about, but most of what I'm doing is just lurking.

I was just remembering N@W and was hoping the forums were still up. Good to see.

I found this on youtube, seems people have taken to the name.

There's been a few pretenders to the throne. Hopefully we get Vanilla N@W back online sometime within the next year. Hell, Everyone who knew us outside of our community thinks we're dead and gone.

Well, we'll show those people, won't we?

AKA Rvan. That's R.van; you pronounce it as "Ar-van", not "R-van".
