, and every one I didn't mention but met here.
I've been a member of MTG Cardsmith for five years, and I have come to enjoy most of the time I spend here engaging with other Cardsmiths and witnessing the creativity you all unleash on a daily basis. However, I'm reaching a pivotal moment in my life, where I've gotta decide what I'm gonna do with my life. As much as I enjoy all the time I spend here, I've spent some time looking back on what Magic's done for me, and I can't think of many good things, and other than smoothing out a few problems I won't mention, the $1500 I have dumped into the game over a few years doesn't make me feel better.
College is slowly inching closer towards me, and with it comes all of my other problems that will probably decide whatever hell I'll have to deal with the next 4 years at least. You may or may not have noticed that I create new cards with ever decreasing regularity, and with the past two to three months I probably delete whatever it is after it's published. Or it was deleted with my recent purging. Now I just creep along the comments section and sometimes reply to a comment for one reason or another, as well as see whatever Featured Card the site decides to share with the world in it's unknown ways.
I am considering what to do with all the progress I have made here, or if I will post once in a blue moon without deleting something, or just wander around and comment every so often. But I can say with full confidence that sadly, I think my time here is nearly over, unless you want me to oddly limp along while openly embracing me. Or pop the bulb in my head and give me a great idea.
I've been aware of how crushing the reality of it is for the most part for the past few years, but now that I'm expected to graduate high school, earn a degree, etc., I've been forced to gut my involvement in many hobbies I cherish. BUT. I have saved a sizable chunk of my collection in OneDrive. I may link a folder sooner or later of whatever's left. And not that I'd want to it to be a biennial thing, but I might press the reset button and just start a new account, except for the fact that I'll still know y'all, and I'd probably use the same Disqus.
I will definitely spend the next week replying, less so the week after, and then vanish and reappear under a different username unless the positively stunning crowd known as MTG Cardsmith convinces me otherwise. But I'm sure you all can one way or another. Or, you know, we can make this a biennial thing where someone points out my Disqus username and the avatar by the one and only Nanomortis.
