1. Today marks the first anniversary of my first ever list, where I ranked the discography of Wilco from weakest to best (recently edited to include their last album!)
  2. During this year, I've listed about a lot of things.
  3. I didn't get any reactions from people on this app until my third list:
  4. It was then that I realized that this app was a pretty cool place that was just getting started, and the community here was unlike any outta community on any other social media site. In short, I was hooked.
  5. Later, I got to know someone named @biz, who requested this list about my pet Betta fish:
  6. ...and later I wrote one of the saddest goodbyes I ever had to write for @biz:
  7. I talked about my favorite albums:
  8. I shared some embarrassing moments:
  9. Part Two coming soon!
  10. Talked about my favorite movies for each year I've been alive:
  11. Talked about my high school plays:
  12. Wondered along with others if the world was getting better or worse:
  13. Said goodbye to The Greatest...
  14. ...Willy Wonka...
  15. ...A Sexy Motherfucker...
  16. ...and my personal hero, David Bowie:
  17. I got here early. Watched the app change from The List App to li.st (still callin it The List App though), saw it go through multiple updates (some received better than others). Saw the community expand, and saw members come and go.
  18. I laughed, smiled, cried, chuckled, agreed, disagreed, joked, argued, liked, relisted, suggested, commented, followed, and read along to the little slices of life and content you all shared. All the while, I tried to write stuff and share what I wanted to say in a way that you would all like, and that would fit in with this platform.
  19. The past year has certainly been interesting. I have many good memories thanks to this app. I've maker connections with people across the country, and the world. Made friends, and learned a lot about myself and others. I've tried to keep back the shyness and anxiety I feel when talking to others, and this app helped. This place is special. Idk why.
  20. I could tag all of the people I've gotten to know on this app, but it would take much too long. I want to thank the people who helped create the app, and most importantly, I want to thank all of you for making this place so great and not ignoring me and putting up with my bullshit for so long.
  21. So I just want to say, that if you're reading this:
  22. Thanks for everything. Here's to another year!
