One year ago today (02/11/11) I was living in upstate New york. I was trying to get into contact with an old friend i had not heard from in over a year. I had no phone number or e-mail address, all i had was his name and some names he had used on other roleplay sites. After a while I finally found him. Iwaku was the only place he was still active. I realize I have not been the most active on Iwaku, but I still love this site. it has been there for me through some really hard times. Iwaku has taught me a lot about myself, like that I am not very good at writing. That may not seem a good thing to take away from Iwaku, but you must realize that I used to think that i was an amazing writer. Iwaku has humbled me, and I am working to improve. So how long has everyone else been here? How did you discover Iwaku? How has Iwaku changed your life?
