Another year, another EPIC, the event everyone on here looks forward to, including me (everyone's favorite Generalfeldmarschall (?)). But as I look forward to this event, I look back to last year and think of the memories, both good and bad, and fell like sharing the good, while making up for the bad.
To start, I want to think everyone for their hospitality last year. I was the first time I had ever been out of state by myself. And being in a city where, admittedly, I had heard so much about (mostly negative, unfortunately) was an unknown world to this Autistic 23 year old (22 at the time). I wish to thank @Gargoyle for getting me there and back, as well as apologize for basically talking his ear off both times. I will admit I am a very opinionated and chatty person sometimes.
I wish to thank @primesuspect and @Linc for being able to put up with me during my first trip out there and I wish to apologize to Prime for my moodiness during the TF2 "tourney" (for lack of a better term).
I wish to again apologize to @CB (whom I know may not be attending this year) for being a smartass to him. A lot of my friends know me as a smartass from time to time. To them (and me), it's just us messing around. But doing that to someone I do not know and who doesn't know me was probably a "tactical mistake".
I wish to apologize to @UPSLynx , @UPSKingpin , and @Church4252 for being a little too clingy (wanting to hang with them and them only throughout the event). With you guys being the first I really got to know, for an Autistic, you guys were the "safe zone", people that I knew and I felt okay around. I also wish to apologize for nearly disqualifying you guys from the marble roll contest.
Even though I now have a passport and will be crossing the border, I still DO NOT apologize to Canada for giving them the bird.
So before I start sounding like a Canadian, I will say this: I look forward to being at EPIC this year. I had a lot of fun last year and am grateful to be a part of Icrontic lore ( #SonnyFace2016), and I look forward to the memories that will be made this year.
So when I get to Detroit, I expect one of two things to happen. Either I will walk through the door and receive a warm reception, or based on the events of last year, it will look like, well.........
Anyway, look forward to seeing you all again.
