August:

-Made it into third year of college.

-Final Fantasy XIV is released and Viva Eorzea Linkshell is formed in-game on the Figaro Server. XIV starts to shatter people's expectations, and in not a good way. It goes on to receive mediocre and terrible reviews for a rushed and incomplete launch.

-Final Fantasy XIV starts to change and make a turn around for the better. UI continues to be updated, rank requirements are lowered.

-Viva Eorzea Linkshell reaches and exceeds 100 members. Some older members who have quit start to come back to the game. Population starts a turn-around.

-After seven years and two months, I retire from Final Fantasy XI.

-Finished Calculus Sequence

-Learned to text message people!

-Obtained 3.1 GPA

Traditional Look Back:

I should have been more active with activities and what not the first four months. In comparison to when I joined FFSEntertainment and formed BETACinema, I didn't really do much outside of school.

On a good note, I was able to meet a lot of cool, interesting people, and was able to break out of my reclusive behavior, even if it's still not all that often! Next year I'm going to continue the trend to not be as reclusive, shy, and awkward. We'll see how it goes.
