Today is my 300th day. I just can't believe that I joined the Empire 300 days ago. I remember when Diamonds were at 30 rupees, the server was so full I couldn't get on. When we had SMP1-4 (correct me if I'm wrong). I think that was a highlight in EMC history. Then, two more servers opened after that and more. The moderators now had to stretch becoming long and thin. Soon, disaster struck, the economy crashed. Some of the most popular players left. I stayed through all this and kept looking forward to the next day, I owned a couple shops in my history. My first shop was basically a tree house... I was a noob... It only had wool and a few building blocks. Then I opened my second shop, It was in the air and was a big stone brick building with stairs going up, like we had before teleport pads. The top two floors were a hotel, I destroyed that with my friend. Then I opened my third shop, almost 60 blocks long. This length proved to be a challenge, I destroyed that over time, and rebuilt it into my new and forever shop, The Sandstone Creeper. I learned how to run a good shop, and how to have a nice residence. Just remember, we are an Empire, empires only fall after hundreds of years, lets keep it that way. Sorry for the long post.
