Chatterbox: Chirp at Cricket

My CBversary!!!

Hey guys.

It’s my first CBversary.

I joined the CB on December 29th, 2016, but didn’t first post until the 30th. If you’ll excuse me saying this, it was sort of like the end of a CB Golden Age. I saw just the end of a lot of great CBers- Cho, Daisy, Indigo, Esthelle, and more. A lot of my first CB friends have left in this past year, and a lot more have joined. I have survived through a war and a half, you might say, but just barely. And now I’m getting nostalgic, so I’d better stop.

I made my first AEs, Anna and Timmy, on January 8, 2017. And let me tell you, I created much too much drama for what they were worth! Timmy had a crush on Quill, Ashlee’s AE, and that lasted about four days, after which I got rid of Timmy. Anna had a crush on Clouded Leopard’s AE 8-Piece, which I think lasted until July(?) when CL got rid of him. Both of the AEs they liked already had ships, and they were two of the three most-shipped AE ships on the Chatterbox. Anna’s crush no longer exists, but she still does… which is amazing in a weird way.

The first RP I joined was Rose bud’s Theater RPG. I think it must still hold first place for my favorite RP ever. Go check out the link at the bottom right now, then help me convince Rose bud to make a third remake of it. Looking back- wow, I was a bad writer! Thank you guys for helping me so much.

But lately, I’ve been thinking about that bratty ten-year-old that I used to be. XD I was pretty bad before I joined the CB… Thanks, guys, for helping me out of that stage, because I know that, without you, I’d still be like I was a year ago. Thanks for putting up with me!

And I know that this is really overused, but it’s true: At times, I have felt like I had no friends, nobody at all, sort of a mild and, thanks to all of you amazing people, temporary state of depression, and you have helped me and supported me every time. When I think of what my life would be like without CB… I don’t even want to.

So…. wow. This past year has gone so fast. Thank you all for supporting and helping me.

With much love,


Thanks for a great year with us, elementgirl! We're so glad to have you here!

I love you so much, Elementgirl, and I'm really glad you've found a home here. You are an incredible person and you never seemed bratty to me. You always seemed older than ten, and you seem older than eleven now. You are such a unique person. You're always very open about your likes, dislikes, and passions in the offline world but you never let those things define you here, or, I imagine, there. You are open to change in yourself and the world around you, which is a truly wonderful quality that I wish more people had. What's more, you can help others see that new isn't always bad and you can help them learn to take an optimistic stance on life, just like you do. This community wouldn't be what it is without you. Just like we've helped you grow into a better person, you've helped this community grow into a better place. Thank you for being, and congratulations on year one! May it be the first of many more. <3
