It’s been a long year with all of you all and with a little more or less than an hour left until its end; I felt some reflection was in order on my part. So I did and it yielded both good and bad. First off, as some of your guys know, I’m a journalist and a writer/editor. Meaning (from my personal standpoint) I’m a great storyteller, but a so so rper.
Secondly, I would like to apologize to the rp community (being you guys and all you guys). I know I can be hot and cold IC and OC a lot of the times, and I apologize for that. Real life should not translate over into the game world, but as the saying goes, “I’m only human.” I apologize for not promoting or just flat out rping as much as I could have with more than the people than I do and even with the people that I do. Lately, I’ve noticed I’ve been late or just flat out miss events that I myself plan. I like to be a man of my word, and of late, I haven’t been. So yet another apology.
To all the people that put up with my lavish crazy bouts, including my guildies in Templars, Blood, and Tears, thank you. I’m not as everywhere as I aspire to be, but you guys have kept me grounded and in the loop when needed. So thank you for that. And a big thank you for other people in the community, especially in ER chat. I know I can be a mouthful and in reflecting, there have been times I should have been chewed out. But you put up with me nonetheless this years. I’d brofist you, but my digital hand only goes as far as my wi-fi.
Much has happened both good and bad that I’ve tried to keep myself in check for. But when I couldn’t, there have been people here to do something as simple as pat me on the back. Which surprisingly helps a lot. People have made me frustrated. They’ve made me laugh. Made me want to choke them. Made me want to comfort them when I could. Good and Bad, and even some things I’d rather forget. But I wouldn’t trade them out because they’ve helped me be a better person for it. So even if I never met you and you’re just reading this as some guys ballad to the old year, I say this and I mean it.
And thank you for taking me as I am.
Being strong in 2013, ERN, because you were awesome in 2012.
