Hey guys! I’ve been sitting on this decision for a few weeks incase my mind changed, but it hasn’t and it’s something I need to do. When I joined OSB a few years ago, I was an extremely lonely teenager looking to find some way to escape some stuff in my life, as most people do. I’ve met some of the best people on here that helped me and I am so thankful for that. You’re all such great people. Alexa, Leo, and Laidy, I’m so glad that I got to spend some time with you all as staff. Y’all are some amazing people that definitely add to the OSB character. I wish I could have been around a bit more the last few months while you’ve all been staff, but I wish you all the best. Thomas, it’s been a pleasure getting to know you. I’m glad that there has been at least one person that is super active on the server as a staff member. You’re super cool and I’m still going to get to hear you talk some day Lee, Lula, Connor, Tammy, Yanny, Kade, Andy, Rehan, Shadow, Trev, Legaan, Dom and any other past staff members or players, thank you for all the fun times. I’m glad that some of you have come back. I’ve missed a lot of you, but I’m glad that I got to know y’all and have some great memories. I’ll always remember the long days talking on teamspeak, playing UHC, skywars, any of the 20 SMP’s we tried starting, etc. I don’t think a lot of people know this, especially since recent problems within staff and that really awful philosopher post he made last year, but Spencer is one of my best friends. He’s been here for me during times that some people weren’t. I wish you would have stayed around, Spencer, but I understand why you left. I hope we can stay friends still like we have been able to. Thanks for being a great friend. Shaun and Sam, I could have included you both in the past staff one, but I feel like that just wouldn’t be enough for either of you. I know that we all had our own issues and haven’t talked for a long time now, but at one point you were both my best friends. It’s hard to imagine what everything would be like at this point for me if I had never met either of you. I know that I’ve apologized to both you multiple times before, but I’m going to apologize for the bad times again. I will always cherish the good times we had together and I’d do anything to go back and live those times again. I wish you both were still around, I miss you both so much, but we all move on with our lives, as will I now, I guess. I love you both. To all my recently formed friendships, Nick (CriptoVirus), Razz, Mr. Boat, etc. thanks for the last few months. You’ve all brought back some joy to the server. You guys are probably the reason why I’ve kind of stuck around (plus general love for the server). I’m glad that I can call y’all friends. You’re a great bunch of people. Stay awesome! Christian, thank you for starting this server. I wish you would have been around a bit more the last two years, but I’m glad that I was around when you were active. It was nice getting to know you during that time, and also getting to meet you. You’re the only online friend I’ve met in person so far. Sorry for any troubles I caused. I just really care a lot about this server and always wanted what I thought was best. That always seems to bring out any aggression. It’s like a mom protecting her child, except this is just a server you started that I got attached to :’D. Thanks so much. I have no idea where I’d be right now without this amazing server you created. I hope you’ll keep it open and allow people to build it back up to how amazing it was at one point. Maybe try to be around for it all again Baby Braden, it’s so hard putting into words how thankful I am for you. I know you’ve tried to be as emotionally disconnected from everyone and the server as you can from day one, but it’s been fun watching you grow up and change after all this time. For those still reading this that haven’t been around for very long, I’ve always been the one saying that Braden needed to be promoted, even after just being promoted. I could tell that this kid was super smart and could help with the server technically from day one. I wish I would have been able to spend more time with you before you decided to “retire”. I hope that you have a great time in college and continue to grow into the amazing ginger I know you are. Lastly, I want to thank one of my best friends, Sammie. Sammie has been here for me more than anyone else. Of course, we’ve had our share of arguments, but we’ve always been able to get through it and continue our friendship. You’ve helped me through heartbreak and rough times, but have also been there to enjoy the good times. I don’t know who I would be or where I’d be in my life if it weren’t for you. It’s crazy to think that someone so far away can brighten your days more than someone right next to you. You are an absolute ray of sunshine. We can go weeks without talking, since we are both so crazy busy nowadays, and pickup right where we were the moment we have free time to talk to each other again. I know that we are going to be friends for a very long time. I think people like y’all are the reason I’ve tried so hard to be around even though my schedule seems almost impossibly busy and I’ve lost most of my interest in minecraft since that terrible 1.9 update (as most people did). If you can’t tell by now, this is me putting in my resignation or retirement(?), whatever it is. I’m at a very different point in my life from when I joined all those years ago. I just can’t make it on like I use to, and I really haven’t for a while now. I wish I could dedicate most of my time to this server, especially since it has helped bring so much joy into my life, but I just can’t. I think I’ve been in deniable for so long now, but it is time for me to move on and allow someone the chance to help with the server, someone who can actually make it on more than my 2 weeks of super activity then 2 more of disappearing. I’m so sorry for any of the negative times, I’ve always just done what I thought would be best for the server. I’ll try my best to make it on once in a while, since there are a lot of you that I can’t imagine never talking to again. Also, if you have me on any kind of social media or messenger, feel free to message me any time. I’m usually really good at responding whenever I’m not working/sleeping. Thank you all so much. I love you all.
