In what's becoming a tradition, the original plan for this post has changed. Originally I was going to make some long, semi-philosophical post about the project's effects on me, but instead I'm going to demonstrate them by doing two things (other than the Countdown to FanimeCon) I never would have entertained before the project.

1) Treat my dad to dinner for his birthday (today)
2) Ask my girlfriend out for tomorrow (okay, not so new, but still not something I've done all that much before)

Last night I was wondering what was causing me to feel so confident lately, and I've decided that it was pretty much everything. Looking back over all the entries I've made over the month, I do feel somewhat accomplished that I kept my commitment of a post each day, and can call myself a National Blog Posting Month "winner". A quick check of my LiveJournal archive tells me some interesting facts:

1) This is the first time I've ever had a post in every day of the month.
2) This is only the second time I've ever had an monthly average of one post a day. December 2004 was the first, but that was a crappy month capped off by having to put one of my cats down, so forget it.
3) There are almost as many posts on this blog for the month of November than I've made in the entirety of 2006 and 2007.
4) There are exactly as many posts on this blog for the month of November as I've made in the entirety of 2009.

Sure, the material was pretty crappy most of the time, but even the best anime series have filler arcs, and NaBloPoMo doesn't grade solely on quality. I would like to improve it ... but that will come over another time.

However, there's no way I would have had the gunyanos (or the insanity) to attempt this in the first place if it weren't for the confidence gained from the various sources over the last fifteen months or so. So instead of dropping some philosophy, I'm going to make this a big shout out to everyone who has influenced me more or less for the better in that time frame, in no particular order. If this victory comes with prizes or any other sort of awesomeness, these people are the ones who helped me make it happen.

It got long. As usual. Go behind the cut and enjoy the mushy! )
