"Snow was falling, so much like stars filling the dark trees that one could easily imagine its reason for being was nothing more than prettiness.

I'm (apparently) a very young-looking person; it's not bad per se, but it's gotten to be kind of a running joke when airline security will ask "how old are you?" as if to say "can you be flying by yourself?"

I'm 20 folks, so Canaltia was the closest. My birthday was not too long ago, so it was very close!

Hi Forest,
I'm fresh off the boat.

We had our first power outage of the season last night. The wind gusts were pretty crazy, heard a tree fall (heh) in the woods behind our house. I actually rather like when power outages happen; it forces me into "sit by the fire and read a book" which is getting harder to find time for since our kid was born.

Welcome to Forest! Was the boat made of reusable materials?

Better to reduce than reuse. That is why most seeds float or drift here.

Somewhere when I was between 25 and 30 there was a dividing line when sales people stopped asking me for an ID when buying alcohol. Makes me feel both flattered and humiliated at the same time, in both cases.
If you want to look older, I recommend growing/knitting a beard. It goes a long way to change perception of onlookers.

Beards are awesome however they require maintainence. You don't want a puby wisp beard and you also don't want a neckbeard. A decent trimmer might set you back 20 quid but with practise you'll be able to maintain a lush beard that radiates an air of quiet competence.

Comrades and Friends, I am here today to present the opening of the Interregional Left Football Association!

The ILFA is a casual RP football governing body that will run a series of leagues and competitions, to create enjoyment and goodwill for the lovely people that inhabit our little corner of NS, all in the spirit of friendly competition! We want to run competitions that nobody will be too busy to get involved in, and we intend to do this in a very simple way: once you've signed up, you don't have to RP, and you won't end up losing constantly for doing so. In fact, we only offer one small RP bonus to those nations that join us, and you'll be offered the opportunity to get it just after you join!

Now, you may be wondering how you can enter the ILFA. Luckily for you, Forest share embassies with our host region, The Leftist Assembly, so you will automatically be accepted upon applying. To apply, please either TG this account (ILFA Administration) or Kavagrad, and you will be processed quickly, entered into the ILFA, and be given access to our shiny new Discord server.

We're currently recruiting nations to join us for our first season, so if you're interested in football, like the idea of the ILFA, or simply want a fun way to get away from everyday regional life, join today!

In Solidarity,

Kavagrad, President of the ILFA

PS: We note that not everyone here is necessarily going to be a Leftist. That's not an obstacle to joining in, though! We're here to spread some comradely spirit, rather than to exclude.
