Happy birthday and hello again


Recommended Posts

Howdy folks,

 

After a long leave of absence I'm dropping in to say hello and wish a happy birthday to Europa. I got an e-mail update alerting me to the milestone and figured "What the heck?" Very cool to see this place still hopping after all this time, and very pleased to see my little nation of Cabarria still hanging out on the Europa map. I worked briefly as the cartographer so I know how much work goes into keeping up with all of that. I must apologize for kind of ghosting all of you - life sort of got busy and NS just fell off as a priority I'm afraid. I've gotten married, had two wonderful kids, gotten divorced, and tried to balance working as a microbiologist in a medical lab with spending time with my kids and playing in a rock cover band. So life is crazy and weird, but it's not too bad. It's actually nuts to think how long ago I messed around in here, and to see you all still having fun all this time later is honestly very cool. I'd love to tell you Cabarria will soon be roaring back on the Europan stage, but I don't know if I have the time to give you that you all deserve, seeing how much amazing effort you all put in around here. It was always fun, and a special thanks to Orioni, Tagmatium, Beautancus, Vocenae, Red Iberic Workers, Adaptus and Haruspex for RPing with me briefly all those years ago and being wonderful people. Happy Birthday Europa! And thank you for still being here and still being you. Blessings.

Hi @Wellsy! As someone, who joined the region roughly two years ago, I often look at the map of continental Europa and wonder about the nations of old, so it's super cool to see one of the "ancients" say hello.

All of us prioritise their real life over Europa, as they should, however, certainly everyone would be delighted to see a sleeping forerunner waking up from their slumber. If you want to write something, I'm sure everyone would be happy, even if it is just a little, It's not like everyone only posts walls of text like @Adaptus and @Tagmatium Rules. :D Anyhow, another place you might want to check out is our regional Discord server, where most, if not all, of our active members hang out on a daily basis, including @Orioni and the aforementioned two ancient titans. Feel free say hi over there as well!

Once more, great to see someone from Europa's history saying hi. :)

Hello again!

It's nice to see an old face drop by.

It sounds like life has been pretty damn busy for you over the last few years!

@Wellsy Hello there Jon and welcome back old feller. 😃 I'm so very happy our little annual update managed to reach you.

That's quite some life story you shared right there. Full of ups and downs and ups again. As many of us here.

Certainly, I have some fond memories of your stories and great help with our early maps. It was really a time of make or break.
