((Yesterday was this blog’s one year anniversary. Wow.
And to think that I almost didn’t make this blog. I had been keeping tabs on a few Journey RP and ask blogs, even sent a few anonymous questions myself. I hadn’t played the game, only seen the artwork and some playthroughs online.
I didn’t have a PS3 to play it (I still don’t unfortunately); but a friend of mine did and actually bought the game just so I could play it. I guess he helped create a monster. Who knew that the first time I walked around the sandy dunes, with my red scarf trailing past the edge of the screen, chirping the same symbol I use for my character now, and all the while chasing after one elusive white cloak… that it would turn into something much, much more?
I cried really hard the first time I played the game. I was and I’m still struggling with my depression. I probably always will. But Journey is something so beautiful and so meaningful and it has become such an important part of my life. Journey has helped me through more than I ever imagined.
I had never RPd before and I had never talked to anybody online before… so I just kind of jumped in. I had no idea what I was doing. I still have no idea what I’m doing, but I guess something worked? Because the people I met here have become another family. This community just full of amazing people with jaw-dropping talent.
I’m not really sure what else to say other than… thank you. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for making this year absolutely amazing. To all of the friends I’ve made—even the ones who have come and gone—you guys are something special. Here’s to another year.
Thank you and I love you all.))
