"There is an hour to come," said he, "when all of us shall cast aside our veils. Take it not amiss, beloved friend, if I wear this piece of crape till then."

"Your words are a mystery, too," returned the young lady. "Take away the veil from them, at least."

"Elizabeth, I will," said he, "so far as my vow may suffer me. Know, then, this veil is a type and a symbol, and I am bound to wear it ever, both in light and darkness, in solitude and before the gaze of multitudes, and as with strangers, so with my familiar friends. No mortal eye will see it withdrawn. This dismal shade must separate me from the world: even you, Elizabeth, can never come behind it!"

~Nathaniel Hawthorne, "The Minister's Black Veil"

Whenever my friend gets in the mood to role play we role play in the forums. Plus I still talk to people every so often through PMs or comments.
What made you decide to come back?

It does, doesn't it? I like it a lot. Though I'm afraid my grades aren't good enough to compete there, so I'm gonna get stuck somewhere doing something I never imagined doing.
What do you do?
