Hi there. Glad to see you're interested enough to learn more about me! I'm Spoiler, but you can call me Jonathan. I've divided my "about me" into categories depending on what you wanted to know more about.
My Time on Mineplex
I joined Mineplex in March 2014 from a friend that introduced me to Draw My Thing. Later in the year, I became actively involved in the community and tried my hardest to become a trainee (known as "helper" at the time). I befriended various people, staff and community members alike, many of whom I have lost contact with unfortunately. Although I eventually got interviewed in February 2015 after hard work and 6 previous applications, I never made it past there since the interview went terribly. Fast forward a few months later and I would have moved on from Mineplex for 3 more years.
I returned to the Mineplex community officially in March 2018. This reason stemmed due to my loneliness and lack of interaction with people in real life, and also to drag myself away from various social media. Only a week after returning, I applied for staff which actually happened to be exactly 3 years since my last application. After getting interviewed once again, I was eventually accepted in April.
I was promoted to mod in June 2018, eventually resigning in August of that same year. At first I felt a little bit of remorse from resigning, but much later I realized that it was beneficial rather than detrimental. This was because I had just started my senior year of high school and needed the time to focus on getting used to my new classes, studying for the SAT, and applying to colleges. I reinstated in November 2018 and have remained on the team ever since.
I'm not apart of many subteams, however I have been apart of the Reports Petrol team since around the time I reinstated, and also some time before that. In total I've processed around 1,000 forum reports as well as over 7,000 reports in-game (/reports). I'm also apart of the Newsletter Team, where I help create and edit the articles of fellow peers. Furthermore, I'm a mentoring assistant under xUmbreon, a position I've had since July 31, 2019.
Currently I am looking into joining the Social Media team but would love to also be a mentor if that position is ever offered to me.
I was born and grew up in the suburbs of New York, around an hour north of NYC. My childhood and teenage years have been long filled with much fear and anxiety, usually stemming from all sorts of different issues. Today I'm a freshman at Stony Brook University with an undecided major for the time being. It's not the best college in the world, but it certainly is very good, as it is one of the top colleges in the State University of NY system. As well, we developed the MRI here so that's pretty cool =)
In the future I don't really know what I could see myself as. Lately, I've been seeing myself as potentially becoming involved with either law, criminal justice, all the way to studying environmental science or marine biology. However every year this has been changing for me. Every year I see myself doing something different. That's a common dilemma I suffer from. I know a definitely want to do political science, but I want a second major as well. What my second major will be I have no idea.
My high school experience certainly wasn't the best, but I'm happy with what has come out of it. If you know me well, you would know that I never really made friends in high school nor communicated with many people except online, which made Mineplex my ultimate paradise during those years. On the day of my high school graduation, I actually had no one applaud for me when I received my diploma. It was probably the most humiliating day of my life. But while only having a 3.4 GPA and 1250 SAT score too, I managed to get into the colleges I hoped for and thus have no reason to complain. In university however, I hope to perform far beyond the way I've been able to in high school. And so far it's been okay!
I'm going to sound really boring when I say this, but other than playing video games there really isn't much I do in real life. In high school I never played sports nor even pursued any other extracurriculars or clubs for that matter. Needless to say, this has made my summers quite boring where most of the time I usually spend on my computer when it's not going to places with my family. I do like to play a little viola on the side however, but I am definitely far from being a professional.
I will be honest and that is sometimes I do like to write. However writing can often make me emotional so I don't do it as often. When I do write, it's usually personal thoughts or just things on my mind (excluding the Newsletter of course). I have habits of having conversations with myself back and forth, and to have it all on paper is usually refreshing. It's something I did a lot in high school but not as often anymore. I don't do diaries either since they require a lot of dedication to be constantly consistent, and also because every day is usually the same for me.
I sometimes like to travel too but don't really have the opportunity to do so nowadays. I have never been anywhere outside the east coast of the United States (except for the time I was at Ohio for a bit when I was 3). Since I'm an hour from NYC, I love going there whenever I have the opportunity to do so. My favorite places would definitely be Times Square, Central Park, and Downtown Manhattan. The Upper East/West sides are also nice, but probably wouldn't be my go-to's. I hope to one day travel to a place outside of the east coast, whether that might mean anywhere from California to Texas. I wouldn't be so sure about going to other countries, as I'm not sure if I am ready for that yet.
