    @ashira @selah-chelyah @valtmy @eden-anderson @samantha-pen @alia (I hope I got everyone’s tags right.)

    Hey, I’m finally back! I completely disappeared from the forums just a little while after joining, and I’ve been receiving tags from you all so I thought I’d let you know what happened. (And that I’m back now. 😉 )

    Right after I joined, my family started moving to a new house, so I had less time to be on here. Then, my computer started acting up and wouldn’t let me access the SE site at all. The latter issue is why there has been complete silence on my part. So anyway, sorry about that. I’m back now, able to access the site and everything. I think I still won’t be exceedingly active here, but I’ll try to actually reply if anyone tags me now that I’m able to do so. 😛

    • You got mine right! 🙂 Alia’s is @therese-play, though.
      Glad to have you back again! Sorry your computer did that to you and you could not access…that would drive me crazy if I couldn’t let friends know what was going on, LOL. How are you and your family doing?

    • Oh, and I have to tell you something, too…
      You have haunted my writing, ruined my orderly notebooks full of precision script (tries not to lose my composure as that is about the last thing from how my notebooks look!), and sidetracked my brain. Yep, you. Okay, in all reality, I have a character named Rochelle. Ring any bells? Rochelle? Rochellaine? I tell you, I do not know WHY I had to name her that when I should have known that in the future I would know a Rochellaine!
      LOL! Seriously, I KEPT writing YOUR name instead of my character’s name ALL the way through my notebook…leaving, naturally, tons (or at least several) “aine”‘s crossed out all over the place. It is actually pretty funny, even though I make it sound terrible. Just know you have NEVER been forgotten, even if you WERE gone. This girl did not forget you! 😀

      • Glad you are back!!! Do you like where you live now?

      • I’m doing great. Haha, sorry for inadvertently causing confusion in your notebooks. 😛 Actually, my username comes from two actresses I like (not necessarily my favorite actresses, but I just kept trying names until I found one I liked) Rochelle Hudson and Jeanne Crain. So yes, it’s actually from Rochelle. 😉

    • YAY!! Glad your back! And that’s totally okay that you weren’t able to reply to tags…life happens. 😀

    • Glad to have you back again! 😀
      That is really neat, finding your name and combining theirs like that! How creative…and I really like your penname. 😛

    • I haven’t been very active on here either, hence replying two months late, but glad you’re here all the same
