If you guys just can't wait for the celebration of the site's 5th birthday, it is definitely in the works! At least, it will be. I sort of wanted to publish a huge six-in-one review on the Books n' Writing Blog, but I figured I should probably work on this even more massive MTMT (Music Time for the Millionth Time). Copying and pasting HTML codes actually takes more time than you think, especially with my slow laptop.
By the way, don't think I'm burdened by doing these sort of things every year. Of course it's for the loyal Inter-friends out there that somehow visit this site everyday. But it's also comforting for me. One of my fears is forgetting about a big event or something else of importance. It freaks me out that things that mattered so much to you can just be forgotten over time. It's the things you love that really show who you are, and if you continue to forget those things, then it's like the pieces of you from certain times in your life disappear. MTMT is a way for me to record music, something that matters a lot to me. It's the same reason I like writing in journals. So what now if I do forget a favorite song in the past? Just open up the archives and relive those first-time-listening experiences! Few things last forever, so hopefully this site will exist long enough for me to revisit all these memories later on.
Since I've already started talking about deep stuff, let me go the sentimental route. In the words of many YouTubers, whether you've visited this site for five years or you just found it a few days ago or any time in between, I'm grateful. Admittedly, this site isn't all too impressive. Maybe visitors run dry from time to time. I haven't been able to update as often as I want to, either because of the amount of work I have in school or the lack of things to really say. But the group of people that visit when I haven't even updated, you're awesome. The other creators that have come and gone, you still inspire me. The friends I've made along the way, you hold a special place in my heart. You all motivate me to keep making posts. You make me feel special when there are over 7 billion other people that are probably just as insignificant, if not more special than me. Five years is a lot of time for a young person to learn and develop. Thanks for deciding to stick around. Small round green vegetables!
