    Hello Dreamers!

    I just happened to hear some really emotional songs on YouTube that had me reminiscing about the people/time spent on this forum, and I really wanted to see how Dreamer's Haven was still doing. Some things never change, and it's astounding to see the community still running strong.

    I first joined the site at the tender age of 14, over ten years ago. That's right, ONE DECADE has passed since I was stirring up drama and causing trouble around the site. I'm sure most of you may not remember me, but I certainly remember a few names from back in the day. I sincerely hope, from the bottom of my heart, that this site continues to live for at LEAST another ten years, even if it isn't as lively without me around =P.

    Truth be told, I joined the site at a really shitty time in my life, and this community welcomed me with wide open arms. I was depressed, and I didn't even realize it until much later, after I stopped frequenting the site. I developed some incredible bonds in my time here, and although I haven't kept in touch with any of you (sorry), I have to thank you for keeping my spirits up in my troubled times.

    I can still clearly remember a lot of the things that happened, like competing for the highest post count, trying to role-play using a 14-year old's limited vocabulary, attempting to get access to the mature section, and crushing on Risa. I caused a lot of drama while I was here, and I hope that you were all able to forgive my silly antics and weird/semi-creepy personality as a teen.

    I grew a lot in my time here, you guys helped me establish a strong sense of morality, personal justice, and self-concept. I learned and grew a lot in my years spent at DH, and I never took the opportunity to thank you guys, so...

    Thank you, you all rock!

    So where have I been the last 10 years? Just living life I guess. I took a ton of Psychology courses in University (DH was probably influential here), and graduated with a degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice. I found out within a year that law wasn't my thing, after working for one of Canada's largest law firms and the local police. I'm now back in school, for video game development, learning how to make games. It's a pretty funny turn of events since I first discovered this site through a Chrono Trigger RP.

    Anyways, I don't see myself staying long, I tend to bounce around between activities, so I may find myself forgetting to visit DHaven as often as I should. I will probably find myself back here in a few years though, this site has had such a huge impact on my life, it's pretty much unforgettable.

    I just wanted to thank everyone here for keeping the site alive, and to say hello to those that still remember who I am. If anyone's interested in connecting via Facebook or something, just shoot me a PM and I'll be happy to link up with you!

    Once again, thank you all. DHaven is the best.

    Always crushing on Risa, sheesh, is she dipped in beer or something? XD

    Regardless, hope to see you around more, it certainly has been a while! A lot has changed here, too!

    *Smile* You weren't creepy at all. It's really inspirational to see how far you've come. It's so lovely to hear from you.

    You know that you're always welcome here. ^-^
