    A Year in Reflection
    ~

    At the end of each year we often look back. We look back at the time we’ve spent doing things, the moments we’ve created and shared. We remember the challenges and accomplishments that we had to go through. We look back because its a story we often like to tell ourselves in the form of a proverbial diary, photograph book or scrap book. In what form you may interpret it, we look back because it gives us an awareness of who we are, how we change and how we learn to adapt to what endeavour we meet.

    MCME at its fourth year passing has provided us with a continued foundation into an inception of experiences that changes not only us but the community itself. The server continues to grow and I am honoured to have been apart of that.

    Lets take the time to look back on what has happened in the past year.

    I would say that my fondest memories would be from just hanging out with all the lovely friends that I have made on the server. It is truly an honor to have met you and I am so very grateful that many of you consider me a friend. A special shout-out to my fellow Guides (@Arkengard @CEFKILLA41320 @kyzcool @Lady_Of_Rohan @rcpopcornman ), @SugarKoala , and @Iru . May 2015 bring us many more good memories together.

    I think the adventure map got way too little attention this year since that was an awesome playthrough. Maybe give a link in it iruuu.

    Plus finishing osgiliath and meeting up with @Alekspaleks @Credoo @q220 @oriour @MaDIIReD that was a good holiday.

    I'd have to say my favourite part was joining the server, this has been my first year on the server and hopefully plenty more into the foreseeable future :D

    I am glad to have made a return to the server this year and to have met so many awesome new people, and been able to reconnect with some other older players. I havent been able to be on much lately these past few months, but I should be able to be more active now which I am very grateful for!

    There's something wrong with the image hosting website used to host those images

    I dont have a favourite top 3; cuz it was all great. But if i must choose, my greatest moments were logging into this awesome server, building all those things, and becomming an Artist. But where im most gratefull for is the many great friends i made this year.
    Thx all for the fantastic year! :D

    I might also want to add @gigo09's 2o minutes full server tour and becoming a Guide as remarkable events of this year for me.

    I'm just tagging a long at the very end of this year--but I'm glad to be returning to MCME. So far, I've had the most fun I've had in a social-heavy game since a some time ago, when I lead a guild on WoW back in 2008. @yomama629 and I found ourselves pitifuly rewriting the inscription of the One Ring to match the tune of "Let it Go" from Frozen -Musical Genius- I've taken up gardening duties on the Linhir roads while providing feedback and receiving feedback on themes and jobs such as Dol Amroth and Annúminas. I've enjoyed every minute of it--and MCME will always be a celebrated past time going forward. Thanks everyone and Happy New Year!
    Also, check out the theme builds for Bamfurlong this week on the Freebuild Server. Amazing work coming from everyone there!

    This year I am grateful for:

    -Real Madrid winning the Champions League
    -Turning 21 and being able to drink legally for the first time
    -Monster Energy for making my mornings easier, Corona for making my evenings smoother, and Jose Cuervo for making my nights funner
    -Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus for giving me great tracks to dance to
    -Peter Jackson for making an other awesome trilogy of my favorite stories

    And of course for everyone who make the best server on Minecraft what it is today. Happy new year guys!

    P.S. @HeartseekerDK let's send the Black Speech version of Let It Go to Disney so Idina Menzel can make a music video of it

    Its a tie between the following:

    1) My drunk nights on the server that have been forever recorded thanks to @pheonixsang

    2) Ithilien. This project was ridiculously difficult but in the end, ridiculously rewarding in the way in turns out. Proud of the work that I put into this project as well as proud of the work that everyone put into this project to make it what it was :)
