when the forum is down
Mineplex when the lag
On a rather ordinary day, in late June, I took a late afternoon walk. It was the half-way point of the year, the time when you can see the sun well after 8pm.
Walking the small roads of some hill, I was thinking about how boring the year had been thus far. The last major events of any kind in my life happened 9 or so months prior to that moment. I was hoping for a change, of any sort.
What I wasn't aware of is that one of the biggest changes in my life had just started.
The time since then has been riddled with continuous shifts in my mindset and my environment. Instead of reminiscing on memories like before, this time life didn't stay the same for long periods of time before bringing forth another radical shift.
Perhaps the most significant of these changes is that I am no longer part of any religion. Changes regarding my identity also took place.
As for Mineplex, I originally wished to quit the network as a whole in September. I prepared a document that most former staff members write after a resignation/demotion, and I waited for the right moment. In the end though, I stayed because of a friend.
Playing a bit more often on the server without being a staff member allowed me to have fun that I didn't have before. I am generally not the kind of person to suck up to any authority, nor someone who likes to enforce rules. I prefer the freedom to do what I think is right.
With that said, I enter 2022 as an active player here after all. Well aware that the server may shut down at some point due to a lack of players, but entirely content with it.
Happy belated New Year,

What is your opinion on mechanical pencils?

today was a weird day
i was in bed until 1:30pm, ate irregular meals at wildly irregular times, felt very weird when talking to people, and my plan of going outside was ruined by thunderstorm
So basically a regular day for me except I would have woken up at like 7:04 am
I will cease to be active on the forums permanently in the near future. If you want to keep in touch, you can add me on Discord and if you want to chat with other people I know or read the writing that I will post there, you can ask me for an invite link to a server I've recently made.
in the mean time I've thought of keeping up a degree of activity here but it'll definitely be decreased
Well, I suppose this means that I should get discord at some point
romance poem time
"Holding Your Umbrella"
Wistful autumn rain falls onto our heads;
I wonder what it thinks of our entwined hands.
As we walk together, a conjoined shadow stands,
a testament of love's neverending threads.
The rain brings us ever closer together:
under the umbrella there's only space for two.
How lucky I am that it's just for me and you
- under this sky I wish for no other weather.
When we arrive home, you'll fall into my arms
while drinking your tea from your favorite mug;
we'll recover from the cold in a warm, cozy hug
to muffled sounds of endless autumn rainstorms.
Until then, I don't mind if a part of me's wet,
as long as you're fully under the umbrella's embrace.
And to protect that precious smile on your face,
I'll keep holding your umbrella, minding no sweat.
I kindanthi k I prefer the first one, but this one is nice too
I wrote this one without rhyme finder so it was much bigger pain for me lol, but I also understand because you seem to enjoy the non-romance ones better
Rainy whispers just strikes me as very peaceful, and rather profound
the solution to the trolley problem is taking a nap and not worrying about the imaginary and hypothetical once in a while
