As you can tell by the title, it has been exactly 1 year since my 2nd application for staff was accepted, and it has been an amazing and wonderful experience, working with many different types of people, and all around having lots of fun. In this thread I am going to be looking over my year and highlights, so if you want to get to the surprise part, feel free. I won't know OverviewOn March 3rd, 2018, during a bus ride home from a band concert, I get a notification on my phone about my staff application being responded to. I was still about an hour away from home, so I had to contain my nervousness/excitement for a while still until I could get to my computer. When I had finally been able to log on, I saw I was accepted and freaked out. And this is where truly a roller coaster of an experience begins. About 2 months later, I was promoted to Mod on May 9th, when I was sleeping. When I woke up it was a school day, so I really couldn't access my computer until I got home, where I was taught basic Mod things. In August, I had become really busy with the beginning of school, and a few extra-curriculars. This is where I actually almost ended up resigning because of my tight fall schedule. But after talking it over with certain people, I stayed, and was allowed to take a small break and still stay staff and log on whenever possible. Then, this past month, I was actually online when I was promoted to Sr. Mod, on February 19th. It was quite the experience, and I'm glad I got to share it with many people that were promoted that day/night. Now here, I celebrate my 1 whole year as staff. This has been an amazing journey, and I can't to see what is in store next for me. Here is a list of people that have helped through this journey, and overall have been very friendly and fun to talk to. I probably wouldn't be here without them @Moonliite - I could go on for awhile about how you are one (if not, the most) friendliest and chill guys I have probably ever meet, but I got to keep this somewhat short. You were the one that introduced me to this server a couple years back, and my main inspiration to apply. Thanks for being there for me, through thick and thin. @RYRYND - I know that you have moved on from this server, and probably won't see this, but you were a great staff member, taught me many things, along with others, and you should have received this tag before me. It's a shame you were never promoted, you definitely deserved it. @SwagifiedPotato - You were always there with me, from day 1.You were always someone who anyone could talk to, and very friendly to mess around with (except for when you rick-rolled me, but I digress). The only negative thing I could tell you is why you couldn't make it to 1 year with me! Actually though, I understand that you needed a break, take your time friend @Milkkyyy - Thanks for being someone who was fun to talk to, and being a friendly and nice person overall. Good luck with Archon you art nerd <3 @Jumpahh - Thanks for being very friendly and authoritative, but also very fun to mess around with and thanks for letting me call you a bunch of nicknames xd I would go on and tag a ton more people, but I thought I would do the people that would most likely view this and people that had more of an impact on me throughout. This does not mean that if I didn't tag you I didn't like you, most people here I have positive connections with. Surprise Now for the surprise...
