Happy birthday, YWS! And all her people! Come join me in a celebration and tell me about your favorite memories here on YWS. Tell me about the people you've met, your proudest work, how YWS has helped you grow as a person and as a writer, your favorite chat moment, your funniest bloopers, etc.!

My fondest memories are:
- meeting @Carina omg you're so annoying i hate you
- making a HORRIBLE happy birthday video for Nate with a crappy phone because Carina made me
- crying with happiness bc Carina made us matching profile backgrounds ily

- every moment ever with @veeren and Carina omg i hate you guys and Voxer tbh
- meeting @Blues @Alpha @LadySpark @ArcticMonkey @Auxiira @Clarity and becoming the Mean Girls aw yeah insert lots of skype logs and chats and general stupidity
- restarting squills and being the EIC and working with such an amazing staff team omg I am so proud of you all and ily you all especially you @SquillsBot ily most
- sneaking onto chat during any class that involved a computer lol senior year man
- kicking Google Bot from the chat all day everyday lol

-Joining late at night and frantically coming-up with a good-sounding username

-Jumping right into one awesome SB as a small and hyperactive little ball of writing fury

-Becoming friends with the SB's faithful crew (including @BrumalHunter and @Ventomology)

-Being told not to write so many small posts at once

-Gradually getting better at writing

-Spending all my time in chat and absorbing myself in the endless in-jokes (including the brazilian juan one that's still somewhere in the quotes)

-Actually writing poetry because a huge prank that @Willard came up with

-Getting nominated for JMship and running around the neighborhood in a state of euphoria for about a half-hour

-Diving into all the SBs.

-The first time I met @Lumi (and pretty much every time afterward)

-Winning writing contests and screaming about it on my wall

-Trying out NaPo and RevMo for the first time

-Starting to post my novel

-Learning to handle critique like a boss

-Growing a few years old and learning more than I ever thought possible

-Basically everyone who's ever tolerated me

-Getting hope and inspiration to keep writing and follow my goals

-Enjoying events like these (seriously I remember the call-in one where I just came back from a park where I'd seen bald eagles and the whole thing was bliss)

-YWS's 13th birthday!

-And pretty much everything else in my time on here
S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
a persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma per ciò che giammai di questo fondo
non tornò vivo alcun, s'i' odo il vero,
senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo.

Inferno, Canto 27, l 61-66.
