      Eighth post of 2021. Keeping the tradition alive.

      I tend to be completely oblivious of my public image. That goes for both real life and online. Although I often spontaneously share a lot of details about myself, it seems that I'm still sort of a mysterious person, and those who think they know me actually do not know me at all.
      With that being said, I've talked to plenty of people, but no one except for probably one person would be able to connect all the parts of myself into something coherent. With that said, while the eventual history of my relationship with Minecraft will contain a complete story of the half of my life spent on-and-off with this game, for now there's a link to my introduction thread on my info page. Not a lot has changed on the surface since then, although it feels like there are more internal turmoils than ever before.​

      Seventh post of 2021: I might write down my Minecraft history at some point before I forget too many details from it.

      Nowadays I'm mostly doing music production, I haven't opened Minecraft in roughly two months. If Mineplex makes any sort of comeback, I'll probably return for that.​

        If ever you want to play Bedrock and desire someone new to meet, I would love to join you to play anything or all of the games to find what is fun and what absolute isn't by shear utter failure or just don't get the logic of how one plays it... yes, Mineplex has had one I deemed impossible to understand despite sometimes winning and not knowing how. It is an offer, just message me and if i am capable of coming on when you want to I will definitely join you. No pressure.
        I know of your wishes to return to staff (that is when I first met you here was when you were staff), and I read you post, the New Year's post, that talked about being gone and deciding to come back... I believe there was much to your post I could feel and relate to, maybe to different degrees. I should say 2020 despite the pandemic should have been a great year for me, it is when I achieved Level 100 exactly 3 years after I started at Mineplex. It should have been a happy achievement but for me it wasn't, I accomplished what most Bedrock players seek to achieve but verses being happy I was sad and depressed by it and just many other mineplex issues that made me feel unwelcome. The Level 100 triggered immediate sadness, it was a loss for me, many see it as a gain, I do but not as much as what I loss achieving it. I truly enjoy and sort of thrive on the leveling up process, knowing I have to get 250,000 xp to level to 100 is actually exhilarating to me. So the journey from level 1 to 100, was 1st, for the fun of playing the games and finding I do well in Turf Wars and Mob Arena to ultimately gain top leaders there, not from really trying to get to #1 but it happening from just my regular game play. 2nd, which would be tied with 1st, is the friendships. 3rd, sure leaders was a nice accomplishment I cannot deny.

        But, all of it changed or came to end, all together, the leveling up was gone, never to accomplish again, friendship was not what I perceived and leaders was all that was left and that wasn't what was important to me. So I ultimately left, to find out what I wanted still here, so I stuck around on and off on here but not in game. I recently returned to both, here I struggle to stay alive, and somewhat in game... but I enjoy both and so I am trying to find my place that I fit into, that makes me happy vs others, which is hard because I thrive to have friendships but I must have a different meaning to the word than others because it is the most difficult thing to accomplish, well for me, and I usually don't understand why. I am not a bad person, just someone who feels way, way too much. Oh well.
        As for Minecraft, if ever, and you feel comfortable with the invite, you are very much welcome to join me on my realm, explore, create, just talk to me when I am there, which is a lot. Or, just enjoy the peace of coming alone (which you can to a realm) to just get away. It is a peaceful place, at least I think so. When I don't want it to be I just go into survival and see if without armor (or, but with good weapons) I can survive the night without dying... lol! I can, just not always, the phantom and the enderman are my downfall to possibly not making it, oh and forgetting to eat.
        So, both invitations are just that, open ended invites. Completely up to you, no pressure, just out there for you to consider and accept or dismiss... either way I am fine. Don't get me wrong, I would truly enjoy the company but it is open ended and completely your choice. Now on to answer your post on my wall ... which has been very difficult for me so has taken me a lot of thought and time.

        @Mystic 0440 honestly I am at a loss for words lol, similar things happened to me while playing on Mineplex so I understand where you are coming from completely. I'd very much like to join, do you have discord so we can stay in touch? And don't worry about the question at all, if you're struggling it's fine to leave it unanswered.

      I often wish I was just a few years older. If I hadn't still been such a kid during the golden days of Minecraft & Mineplex, I would have remembered and contributed a lot more. I usually hate leaving thoughts unresolved, but this one keeps haunting me. As I said to one of my MP friends a few days ago, I would have been so happy if I had the opportunity to be around as a staff member here from the summer of 2015, all the way to last summer where I'd resign as a five year veteran, with the full experience and a sense of accomplishment. As a result, considering that the server is currently a pretty boring place all things considered, I am getting mixed feelings, something I'm usually able to overcome quickly.

      But hey, not all is that dull. A new chapter lies ahead.​

      2020 Recapped.

      Holy moly.

      As much as 2019 was one of the better years recently, 2020 was one of the worst. After a shortened winter break and the surge of the virus, I found myself without the energy to complete the most basic school tasks. Together with the emotional pain that I pretty much caused to myself, there are more than enough reasons to call 2020 an absolute failure of a year.

      As for Mineplex, it started off somewhat good actually. I had moved on past the crises of my Trainee trial and was a happy Moderator on RP, later FM as well - the only setback being the RA rejection. However, due to online school and a few other factors, I resigned on April 4. I soon found that suddenly leaving the place I had loved so dearly was another mistake on my part. I tried returning as soon as two months later, even filing two reinstatement applications, but in truth, I wasn't capable of returning yet, as I was still going through a pretty tough phase of healing and self-doubts. By the end of summer, things had somewhat improved, and I was able to focus on the real world and keep up with school once again. While at first I thought it wouldn't make sense to make a return here since it's not particularly 'useful', I always considered being here to be a great pastime in many different ways. And when I got bored, I would just take a small break.

      With that said, my 2021 resolution for this place (and mostly in general) is to try new things, be less afraid, make small and meaningful changes around me and have fun.

      2020 has caused me to change a lot, but I have learned my lessons and I am ready to move on.

      Thanks to @vili_gx and @Dallarth for always being by my side.

      Happy New Year!

      Out of the three strongest earthquakes I've ever felt, three of them happened this year, the latest occuring two hours ago. They were three different quakes at different locations. All I'm wondering is how that is possible.​

      I believe I should also make a quick update on my mental health, I've been doing better for a few days now so I would say that the phase from earlier this month is over. It's just school and a deadline for a song I'm struggling with that are stressing me out right now. However, there is also a piece of advice I want to stress. Crying is extremely important. It's a way for internalized negative emotions to come out and it allows your mind to think more objectively - without the bias of anxiety, sadness or depression. If you're supressing your emotions for any reason, allow yourself to feel them. Unfortunately, for most of this year I have been emotionally numb to the point where I didn't cry for over nine months until a couple of days ago.​

      One year ago, I completed my second trainee trial. Let's say it had its ups and downs, as did the entire journey, but I'll talk about it more in the upcoming annual new year post.

      I've been pretty inactive recently as I've had to do a lot of sitting already for school and music. I'll be back in a week.​

      Hello everybody that checks Norns wall, Dallarth here filling in for Norns weekly post as he is unable to be here today. Todays subject will be "nostalgia", so without further ado, here we go.

      Nostalgia. It is something that we all feel from time to time. Whether it be a memory from a time in our lives that we wish we could experience again or even a simple smell that is familiar from our childhood, it is nevertheless a welcome feeling and provides warmth and comfort. Nostalgia can also invoke sadness, however, as it reminds us of a time when life was simpler. Just remember, feeling nostalgic is completely normal and there is nothing wrong with feeling a little sad now and again, it is a normal human emotion. As Norn likes to include quotes and poems and the like in his posts, I will now do the same. Here is a quote about nostalgia. I hope it lives up to the standards of normal Norn quotes.

      "Time was passing like a hand waving from a train I wanted to be on.
      I hope you never have to think about anything as much as I think about you"

      And that concludes my Norn post. I hope everyone has a good day/evening. Farewell.​

      After a few months, I've decided to write a poem inspired by a song again. Let's say... it hasn't been a good couple of days for me. I've been having nightmares almost every night. It's been raining a lot as well, but right now I'm looking outside the window at 12:40am and I see many snowflakes rushing down from the sky. It's snowing again. It won't stick to the ground or anything, but it reminds me of how I rushed outside to greet even those wet snowflakes a year ago when the weather was similar.

      I wrote the poem yesterday evening, though. The continuous feeling of the world around me just being much different than it was a mere few months ago is haunting me without any reason. It's just there, and I cannot get rid of it. There's no way to escape it. Except dreams... endless dreams.

      "Who Will Save Us Now?"

      When rain brings sorrows of eternity
      and reminiscence of our sheer fragility;
      when the rooms are dark and cold,
      and there is no hand to hold.

      When your heart is like an abandoned home
      whose old inhabitants are long from earth gone.
      The smell of old furniture fading away,
      as if the memories were not meant to stay.

      When nothing is quite like it used to be,
      when entire parts of perception disappear,
      when the consciousness feels completely numb
      and there is no hope in the days to come:

      Who will save us now?​
