I know this is probably off-topic, but whatever. I had no better place to put this.

Most of the time I'm on the SE network, I just go back and forth between a few sites, reading things that catch my eye. This network is like therapy, helping me to cool down during stressful hours.

However, I have to say something special about this one site.

I recently had a tough moment in my live, with lots of things going wrong at the same time and a bit of my little world crumbling over itself. Life went dark, and for the last few months I lost a few of the most important things (and one person) I had on my life.

However, during this time, I kept coming here. Checking out WB, seeing stuff around. Laughing with some of the most awesome ideas for worlds I had ever seen. Smiling from some witty comments. This site kept my head cool, distracted, and made my life a bit better during those times. For that, I'm extremely grateful.

From the bottom of my heart, a huge Thank You for this community.

Keep on being awesome!
