The tour is over, I've survived

New Year's Day, 2014, and here I am sitting at my computer typing a blog for you guys.

Last night was a blast. I hosted a party and had about fifteen people over, and, well, we did stuff. :P I hope everyone had a great New Years Eve, whatever you were doing. But I'm not here to talk to you guys about that. Again, it's a new year, and it's also time for a fresh start.

In all seriousness, I'm leaving the forum. My visits have been occurring less and less frequently, and my time spent in other places are starting to outweigh that spent on here, and I think it's time for this little Chika to take his leave. But I'm not taking any negative feelings away from here; in fact, I'm leaving a changed person and my life wouldn't be the same without any of you guys. Even though my experience turned out to be the exact opposite of my original goal for this forum I still love this place all the same, through the drama and all. And the people, ohmygod. I've met too many amazing people here, that I just want to take a moment here and thank those who have made the last two and a half years great.

The original goal I mentioned above was probably similar to a lot of people's goals. I originally joined to talk about Pokemon; more specifically, those RSE Remakes that never happened. Looking back on my first posts, I gotta say, I was an IDIOT. I tried to make myself heard and at the time, I thought my opinions were good opinions. But they always got put down by someone else. Oh well, I guess that's what an 11 year old kid gets when he treads into one of the most dangerous areas of the forum. I don't think he remembers me from those days, but I'd like to thank @Joshawott; for putting up with me and doing what a good moderator does.

From there, I wandered across the forum, landing on the little island of Fun & Games, which ended up being my home. After all, it was the only place for someone like me, right? The people there welcomed me as a fellow comrade. :P
@Neltharion S. Deathwing; Lord, I don't even know if you're here anymore. I don't even know if ANYONE'S here anymore. Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you for all the explosions, friendly chats, and Mew3s over the years. I don't think I've given you enough credit for how good of a person you've been to me, and for that I'm sorry.

@British Banette; The same goes for you as it goes for Nelthy. I didn't ever give you enough credit for how good a friend you are. And I've been a dick to you, and I'm so sorry for everything I've ever done. Your cheerfulness always brings a smile to my face. "HEY GUYS!!! BB here..." Haha, I wish you well in your travels.

@Karis; Hyper...? Is that you? I think it is. Either way, if it is you, then I just wanted to say this: You were there on my first day in the RM, and thank you for not throwing me aside like a piece of dirt. :P

@Rainbow; Thank you for all the fun conversations we had, and, now that you've returned, go for modding again! I've imagine you as one and I think you'd make a good moderator. Oh, and...Believe in yourself.

@TheMissingno.; Thank you for entertainment in the BCCT. You're the life of any party on this forum, and:
I don't always resist. But when I do, it's with The Resistance.

@Jack Pschitt; Stay cool bro. That is all.

@Momoka; Fin-Fin! We never talked much but I feel like we would have been good friends. Say bye to FA and HCL for me. :(

@Milkapoke; My swimmer buddy. I know how much you hated me when I first joined. I just hope that whatever I did I fixed. I think of you now as a great friend and person. My next goal? The Olympics. :P See you and your sister there! ;)

@Serperiority; Daryl, you're awesome. Again, sorry I didn't really give you enough credit as a friend.

@Shiny Celebi; HMU on EGC sometime. Strive for success and, like Rainbow, believe in yourself. You're very pretty, a good moderator, and most of all a good friend, neighbor. :P

@Neosquid; I really admire the way you rebuilt your entire life. I wish I could do the same.

@Truthseeker4499; @Erdrick; @jokool; @Greece; I'll see you guys at TPPS. May you guys never forget our times here. @Joltik; should also join :P

@Parma; @Hallowheart; @Mintaka; Thank you guys for being the best staffs for the Fun & Games forum. I really enjoyed having you guys around.

@Ghost; I remember you fondly from all of the warnings I got. Thank God they were only warnings :P You were an excellent moderator, and I see you being exactly what your name suggests...If you ever get some free time, come back! The forum needs people like you.

These next few people deserve special mentions. They're my best friends and they share a special place in my memories here....

@AlexandraTheZoroark; I was sad to see you go. I'm sorry for all the pain I caused you, but I know you've moved on. If you ever see this, try to get active again here. I'm sure that the RM would be glad to see your bubbly personality. Also, you're a great artist; never give that up.

@Aetheria;/Yellow/Sam There's only one thing to say...I'm sorry. But I know it'll never be enough to heal the damage I've done.

@Kakuna Matata; KM...You were my favorite staff member because you could always take a joke, no matter how serious the situation was. You do your job well and you've helped me through many things in the past...All I have to say is thank you. #kmforsmod

@Caprizant; You're a good person and although I've been quite harsh to you in the past, I think we came out friends. I'll admit that I was always jealous of you because you were so much better than me at everything, from being a good member to being a better friend to everyone I knew. I know I'll see you around TPPS so this really isn't goodbye, but I wish you luck with your moderator post. You definitely deserve it.

@Mite75; Thanks for sticking around all this time for me. You deserve a lot of credit for supporting me through everything and actually staying my friend, considering how bad of one I've been to you. Like others though, I know this isn't goodbye...

@Monokuma; Lara. The other week I took out Spirit Tracks one more time, and finally beat it...Heh. I still watch your AMVs, they keep getting better.
Thnks fr th mrms, sis.

@Faiwy; get out of here i hate you
ttyl bby <3

.....I got hit with this massive wave of nostalgia as I was writing this. There's so many more people that I want to thank, and people on here that I haven't thanked enough, so I'm sorry if I forgot you. If I knew you at any time on this forum, then I love you. <3

You can contact me here at the EverGrandeCity forums, where my current forward base of operations is located, or at The Planetary Pit Stop, at

...Who knows? This might just last a day, or maybe it'll last a month, or maybe a year. I don't know if or when I'll come back, and I'm not sure if I want to. But if I do, be prepared.

"I don't know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.

I, uh, I have things to do...

I regret to announce...this is The End.

I am going now, I bid you all a very fond farewell.

    Ahhh, thank you so much for mentioning me in this! I'm really flattered. Yeah, we didn't really talk all that much but I bet if we had talked a bit more we could have been really good friends. Well, it's not like we won't ever get that chance since, who knows... you might come back someday. If you don't though, I wish you luck in life and I hope this new year for you will go very well!

    Don't you worry, Caps. I will always be cool. Fare well on your journey through whatever it is you're doing now. It's great you decided to make a formal good-bye instead of just fading away, so that we could all reciprocate. See ya 'round.

    Do I remember? Do I even remember where I am now?

    In all seriousness, so sad to hear that you're leaving! (and believe me, I was a bigger idiot than I started). I wish you the very best!

    Good to hear you had a nice New Year's Eve! It sucks that you won't be around here anymore, but like you said, there's a positive side to this. There are only so many hours in a day, and with your busy schedule it can be hard to juggle so many things, so it's great that you'll be doing what you enjoy, even if it means you stop visiting here. Good for you, DJ! :D

    And no thanks are necessary. ^^ Hope to see you around TPPS, though it seems I'm more rare than a roaming legendary over there.

    I pretty much despise any new person to RM, so you aren't the only one. It sucks that you aren't going to be on anymore (By the way, I think you might just see my sister at the Olympics, along with you).

    Have an enjoyable life, Cap!

    I don't really know you that well, but it always makes me a little sad when people leave.

    See you around the Pit Stop, and thanks for the mention, I'm glad you stuck around for as long as you did so that we could get to know each other! :3c And hey, you're a great friend, I just sort of flap around making whale noises if anyone decides to talk to me :I

    I know we didn't talk much, but I do like you, and it's depressing to see you go. I really appreciate that you noticed my changes, assuming that's what you were talking about...

    Good luck with your future endeavors! Who knows, maybe I'll be pestered into joining the EGC forums by various friends of mine that go there.
