So I bet you saw this post and thought “hey, it’s July, it’s SimNano time – looks like Gryff got her shit together halfway through the month!”
Well nope, I’m actually just here to drop the obligatory birthday post acknowledging this blog’s SEVEN YEARS of existence. That’s right – acknowledging, not celebrating, because we’re well past treating these birthdays as accomplishments.
^ This legacy, 95 years from now after the successful completion of Chapter 8.17
In fact, at exactly seven years in, my last published chapter is 7.7 and that’s pretty cool BUT we’ve officially started averaging LESS than a generation a year and that’s pretty… not cool.

Here are some more impressive things that have been accomplished in less than seven years:
Michelangelo – painted the Sistine Chapel
Mark Zuckerberg – coded Facebook, became a billionaire
Harry Potter – defeated the darkest wizard of all time
The Black Death – eradicated 60% of Europe’s population
This kid – born, accepted to Oxford
On the other hand, it took Andy Dufresne 19 years to escape Shawshank Prison and excavating a wall with a tiny hammer seems like a much more apt metaphor for this legacy soooo maybe I don’t need to beat myself up. (Correction – I really do need to beat myself up.)
