I canít believe itís been over a year since my previous and only blog post. I thought it would be appropriate however, to reflect on the year Iíve had with the lovely people at Dtoid UK (& Europe) before continuing to possibly contribute more to the community blogs.
In this last year I have been whole-heartedly welcomed into the warm and friendly bosom of the lovely Dtoid UK crowd and have been lucky to attend several events such as MCM Expo, which was my first time meeting these weird internet people.
We had a lot of fun - admittedly more of it was outside of the Expo at the various drinking and eating destinations! I felt completely welcome and accepted into the already established group of people, which I was not expecting at all. They even felt comfortable enough to laugh at my embarrassing moments, which unfortunately happen a lot.
From then on I felt part of the group and went along to meals, birthdays, more drinking and more embarrassment, and Eurogamer of course, in October, which was a whole weekend of Dtoid madness.
The main point I am trying to make here is that destructoid is probably one of the only groups that I have joined recently that has such an overwhelming sense of community. It actively welcomes new people into the group, and the friends that I have made along the way are hopefully ones that I will hold onto for a long time.
The time and effort that goes into organizing such big groups of people is never an easy one, but it all seems to come together to enable great times with fantastic people, and for that I must thank our community manager Hollie, who makes it all work so well and devotes any time she has outside of catching babies to keeping us updated and organized in upcoming events. You are truly a superwoman!
So here is to a fantastic and truly memorable year at Dtoid, and I know that there will be many more to come <3
