Chansey UPN DAY 2018!

Today we have gathered here on this most blessed of days to celebrate the creation of UPN. I don't know where I'd be without UPN in my life and I hope the same applies to all of you. Especially since, you know, as I am writing this there is a large quantity of UPNers hanging out irl right now which is pretty darn cool.

Personally I had an actual really good year this last year. I have landed more or less my dream job which is part of the reason I couldn't bail work for a week to meet with people. You never know where you end up in life.

As per the usual, post your UPN story and I'll allow you to be able to change your user title whenever you want. It can be how you found this place, or if you've done this a thousand times already, you can just write about your life the last year. Also if you post here for three years and I'll allow you a one-time user name change. Super fancy!

(November to be exact), we had our eyes on an apartment but ended up in a really nice condo about two blocks from my parents house. (That's not the best, but my parents did live in the new part of town.). Did my first year of school for Education, had a C+ average; not the best but I'm working on it. This year I do my two initial practicums for school which involve going to a school and being a teacher's aide for a bit, it's a little nerve wracking to say the least. I'm just thankful that they respectively don't start until November and March. (I only attend each for one month).

Now for UPN itself. Interacting on the Discord has been such a positive experience, you're all so kind and nice. I love talking with you all and I've actually formed some pretty lasting friendships. Looks at my 5 year friendship with Lit.. Otherwise, you've all be super welcoming and I need to interact with a lot of you some more.

Maybe one day I'll join ASB... maybe one day...

One more year till I can change this garbage username.
Ew. Gross. I got dumped like a month after I made this post LMAO. I'm back living with my parents, which is chill --- my mom and I's relationship has gotten like infinity times better. Boosted my C+ Average to a B+ average, finished my second semester with a 3.4 GPA! (A- in EDUC class!). Oh yeah, my practicums were in a Grade 8 classroom... which 100% was super scary when I first learned about it but my mentor teacher was a doll and my students were honestly really great. Otherwise... 2017 was pretty good. Might've gotten dumped, but like the year got better at the tail end and I spent more time with my gal pals and went on my first ever proper roadtrip back to my home town.

On the UPN side... I love you all so much. You're such a great community and it's been an honor to be welcomed into it so willingly. I love talking to all of you! You all have such wonderful things about you! Along with that... as you can probably tell I'm active on Fizzy Bubbles heavily and I got made a zone admin and I literally almost cried when I was voted in???? I am a weak baby...

And to top the year off... it's my THIRD YEAR posting in these babies.

If possible could you just shorten my name to Naru?

That would be amazing Kuno! I love you and the rest of UPN! Here's to another 3 years. <3

UPN DAY COMES AGAINNNNNNNNN

Hope you folks at UPN Con are having a good time. This would be the fourth UPN Day for me, and the latter half of 2017 was pretty eventful. Finished off my time in Japan, still yearn to go Japan again, returned to lab work where I realised I have no memory of how to do statistics.

We've seen forum activities rise and fall, and rise again. FB and Mafia tend to dominate, but I do love WF and ASB coming back as well. I wish I had more time to participate in WF and ASB again, since the latter was the primary reason for my arrival here, but alas, final year of undergrad just kicks my ass.

Wishing you all a good UPN Day (even though it's like 9pm my end), and looking forward to UPN Day 2019!

o7

EDIT: Oh hey I can't maths. Thanks Chalis.

I've been doing some stuff. Expecting to graduate in December, so that's cool. Only took me seven years to get my undergraduate degree. o7 I might have some grad school prospects? Waiting on a response to a financial aide appeal. We'll see. I'm hopeful.

Happy UPN day. Can't wait until next year, when I can change my name. :P

Happy 19th, on June the 19th.

The last year was a pretty slow one for the forum, but for the forum members we saw a lot happen. Graduations, weddings, new jobs, all sorts of new frontiers. Looking back on Summer 2017 - Spring 2018, my biggest personal accomplishment was definitely the work I put into studying Japanese. UPN-wise, the biggest thing that happened to me was getting to meet Deoxys in person, my first ever in-person meeting with a UPNer.

On this blessed UPN Day, I opened a box of Legendary Collection Kaiba and pulled a Card of Demise, Raigeki, and Terraforming, and so Kuno has blessed my pulls.

Life is going really well and being at UPNCon is really fucking awesome. Sneaze is cooking salmon and my body is totally fucking ready for it.

How the fuck have I been here for almost 5 years now

Well, to be honest, not much has changed since last year. College continues to be the best time of my life, and every day I spend home is downright depressing in comparison. But it's alright, only 2 more months before I go back to school for another great year, and I've got music to write and games to grind in the meantime.

My forum presence is pretty much nonexistent at this point, but I do still pop in every so often on the Discord, so feel free to shoot me a message if you wanna talk. Just don't ping me gdi. Happy UPN Day!

Among the good things that did happen, I got goldnbolded over in ASB, I had loads of fun running the most recent GM, I left the US for the first time in my life (and, subsequently, saw the ocean owo) and got to meet up with my cousin who I hadn't seen in years.

I think this is only UPN Day number 2 for me, but it doesn't really matter since I love my name and wouldn't want to change it anyway xp
This year was in fact significantly better! Got a job, finished high school, and am excited to start college in August. I was also delighted to fly out to New Jersey to attend Kots's wedding along with Deebs, Jeri, and Spark (and, perhaps more importantly, meet Pots!). UPN and the people here continue to hold a special place in my heart. Happy UPN Day, everyone!

This is my 3rd UPN Day, but I still love my name so I don't really want a name change. Thanks anyway though Kuno!

I feel like I've been around even less since last year. UPN just isn't the same with old friends like Hanatori gone, makes me kind of sad. And AIM went away, so now my attention for online friends is divided among like 10 different chat services that people fragmented off to.

SOMEHOW, I am still meeting up with UPNers old and new. In the last year, I met up with ABL, Muyo, Patches, and Stitches. My UPNdex ever increases. It's a mystery to everyone.

So I guess everyone is slowly getting consumed by real life and having less time for UPN, but at the same time, people are meeting up even more. It's both bitter and sweet.

I'm at UPNCon right now and I went upstairs to go to bed but then I realized that I needed to post here first! (30 minutes to spare; slipping in under the wire yet again)

So oh my gosh this is my fifth year here!? That astounds me, I thought it was like my third. I've made so many good friends through this forum and if it wasn't for UPN I wouldn't be hanging out with some of them in Cape Cod right now! In the past year (before UPNCon) I've also met up with Kuno, Morg, Loki, DM, Jeri, Spark, and Deh, which is super cool. (Shoutout to Morg for forgetting that we saw each other in person twice :P )

Fourth of of college has been the busiest yet, which has definitely shown in my nonexistent forum presence and sporadic Discord appearances. I made it though, and I'm planning to take a fifth year to study abroad in Japan in the fall! I definitely plan to stick around UPN for all the foreseeable future. Thank you to everyone for continuing to be a welcoming community, and Happy UPN Day 2018!

PS - Emi I'm happy you got good pulls from the box!

ahh missed it by two hours

Happy UPN Day! This is my 7th which is absolutely nuts man. The past year has had a lot of ups and downs for me but I'm glad that y'all are always around to brighten my day. Currently in an unexpectedly busy time in my life right now (I'm working a lot more than expected but I LOVE my job so yay!) and I'm getting my life back on track with the parts that were down. So overall, things are looking peachy!

Hope you guys are having so much fun at UPNCon! The Florida meetup was so much fun and I wish I could've made it to this one. Also for the UPNers I've met in real life I look way different now so I'll post a pic in the picture thread sometime soon to keep y'all updated.
