It's hard to believe my first post on TAY was a year ago today. Since then a lot has happened, you guys have changed my life.

I've made a lot of friends here, more than I can probably name, but I'll try:

Zarnyx, the lady admin who gave me authorship and read my tayclassic posts when I was still posting under a nom de plume. Thanks for giving me a shot at writing, without you I would be a much sadder blogger.

GBD, thanks for not banning me when I accidentally tried to steal Nintendo reviews from you. And for working on that whole TAY Review system thing with me, I think people like it a little. Maybe. Also, we went to PAX! And it was awesome!


Nach, I just found out yesterday that my Skyward Sword article made you hate me a little. Sorry about that. Getting to know you this year has been really cool, even if your gaming tastes are some of the strangest I've ever seen.

Tina Amini, you've been a massive help to me this year. Between answering a stupid amount of emails and text messages regarding everything from Kinja's general weirdness to my insecurities as a writer, I gave you lots to deal with. I probably owe you several six packs of whatever it is super-editors drink.


Dyramorie, TAY's power couple. When I first started out, I got the sense you two didn't like me very much, but as the year wore on I think we warmed up to each other. You two have been very kind to me, I'm glad to be able to count both of you as friends.

Habboi, Wait.. who is this guy again? Make with A Hat in Time and I might fix this.

There are so many more of you I love talking to on here, and I'll miss some, but I'll try. TUT, Neryl, Aikage (RIP, buddy), DisturbedShadow, poco, Dangerous, UI, Unimplied, SylverFyst. All of you are people I look forward to commenting with every day. Thanks for making TAY an awesome place for me to call home.


[Update, because I'm a terrible person] I can't believe I forgot so many people! JollyBoots, SupremeEvan, Bonny John, BattleBorn/IndigoAsh, Shiryu, topgearFTW and KIREEK (I know you're lurking around here somewhere).

I'm running out of sappy things to say, so I'll end this here. You guys made my year. 2014 was one of the best years of my life and it's thanks to all of you. I'm going to try harder for all of you in 2015, post more, interact more and play more. Here's to another great year.
