5 years. 


Friends, it's that time again--my surrogate CBversary was December 1st and it marks the anniversary of me being a CBer for five years! 

I don't know what to say here exactly. I've expressed my love for the CB countless times, so let me just say that this forum & community has been my lifeline.

Admins, thank you for keeping it up so that more kids like me can have a place to hang out and communicate and form ideas. I spent the better part of my tween years talking to people through this site and it helped me during a time when I was very lonely and needy. Also, through this place I met one of my best friends, Leeli. I just...am so grateful to this place. Thank you. 

CBers, I may not know many of you very well, as most of you are newer, but y'all are awesome. Hang in there and keep being yourselves and doing things you love. I believe in you. 

Most of my friends aren't around for me to talk to, and honestly I don't know what I'd say, but hey Leeliiii, I love you and honestly don't know what I'd do without you. I think I'd definitely be a worse person. Thank you for being my friend and dangit I can't wait to meet you in person <33

Everyone--first of all, have some cake *passes around chocolate cake*; second of all, I'm excited for my 5th year on the CB even though I may not be quite as active anymore; third, if you ever wanna  talk I'm on all three CB classrooms on NaNoWriMo

confetti!! *rolls out confetti cannon*

Leafyyyy my buddy my pal my best CB friend, I'm eternally grateful we had the privilege to meet on this lovely website. You've always been there for me and just--ilysm, you're a queen. And I can't wait to meet you in person someday too. <3

Congrats on five (six?) years! I believe I've lost count of how long I've been here so props to you for even remembering your CBversary. XD But I'm so happy for you and that's a big milestone, so *rolls in confetti*

HAPPY CBVERSERY!! I will gladly take some cake!!

I just wanted to say that you have been so suprotive of everyone and everything! Ever since I've joined the CB you have always been so welcoming to me and to all new CBers! Also I've been thinking about joining NaNo so if someone wouldn't minds giving out the classroom codes or however it works! 

*Blows confetti popper*

Aw thank you so much! The code to the current main classroom is WSIOPCIC and in the welcome section are codes to the other classrooms!
