Hi! I haven't really been online for a few weeks and I've got like a billion alerts which I'll respond to over the next couple of days! Dec 15, 2020

“When you start to feel like things should have been better this year, remember the mountains and valleys that got you here. They are not accidents, and those moments weren't in vain. You are not the same. You have grown and you are growing. You are breathing, you are living, you are wrapped in endless, boundless grace. And things will get better. There is more to you than yesterday.”

hii, fabulous human! if we've never met before, most people call me Ray but you can call me anything you'd like - I have a bunch of nicknames that range from "Palmtree" to "Ray Bay" to "Raylian" so feel free to call me anything xD I live in the UK and I'm currently 19 years old. I know, I'm so old, don't remind me xD like honestly I feel a bit out of place here because I'm definitely one of the oldest members (in terms of age and in terms of how long I've been here), everyone here is so young and cool; I wanna be 16 or 17 againnnn xD *play Seventeen by Sharon van Etten*
anyway though, I've been a member of the BrokenLens community since 2016 and being here has been one of the most wonderful experiences I'll ever have. I started playing on the servers with my siblings, at first, then after a few weeks, we joined the forums!! I don't really go on the servers anymore, but if you'd like to play with me, I would love to! there's a bit of a weird situation with my IGN, which I'll explain if we play xD
however, I'm active on the forums! I've created so many beautiful memories here and I can't quite articulate how I feel about this place; it's a really deep feeling with flavours of love and happiness and nostalgia and gratitude. it isn't a feeling that can be expressed using words. I've met people here who I love and admire with all my heart, and I hope to hold onto some of those friendships forever.
the forums have changed a lot over the 4 years that I've been here. people have come and people have gone and I feel that the atmosphere is continuously shifting, much like any community of people, I suppose; it's certainly very different from how it was last year, which in turn was different from how it was in 2018, and so on. the shape of the community changes every time a new person joins or an old person leaves. but although the shape changes and the size grows and cracks may appear, it's not going to fall apart. and I think that's beautiful.
to every single person here that I've ever talked to - I love you and I'm so grateful that I had the chance to meet you. from wherever you are in the world, however much we've seen each other, whatever we've talked about, you've been a part of my life in one way or another and that kind of connection is irreplaceable. I hope you know how incredible you are. I hope you follow all of your dreams because your dreams matter. you're going to change the world, so keep going.
and um... yeah! if we haven't met before, then hey, it's really nice to meet you and I hope we become friends!! And if we're already friends, then hiya, I miss you, we need to talk more xD
also, here is a random description that Lauren (@seacosmos) wrote about me in 2017. it's a bit weird and not necessarily 100% accurate but Lauren is awesome and it's quite funny so here you go!
So... welcome to Ray's info tab! This is where you shall learn every single thing about the one and only, Ray! Well actually, he isn't the only person called Ray, but you understand, right?
Anyway, here's the origin of Ray's username:
... you didn't actually think I'd tell you, right? Fine, just search "Ray Palmer Atom" in Google. There's your answer!
Also, Ray's a huge Avicii fan. Emphasis on huge. He loves Avicii as much as he hates Drake. Oops, yet another secret spilt. Well sorry, to all you great, awesome and amazing Drake fans out there.
You have permission to destroy Ray if you want.
Moving on, Ray's birthday is on December 31st. Yep, on the very last day of the year. So not only is he last in everything, his birthday is too! Amazing? Ikr.
Also, Ray has an endless amount of nicknames. Everyone keeps on giving him new nicknames, but it's all just for fun, so don't worry, Ray's totally fine with all of it, totally not crying in the corner...
Okay so I may have thrown a rock at him which made him cry a teeny, tiny bit just for this. So what?
No, I'm not a merciless torturer who tortures people just for the heck of it.
Also Ray's shipped with everyone.
I could never name all of them.
Well then, I think I've said enough about the bad side of Ray. Let's move onto the good! (Because I do not want to be held responsible for you pitying Ray because of his horrible, horrible life.)
Ray is a really inspiring person.
I think I've already said that way too many times.
I need to calm down on the niceness.
ANYWAY, as I was saying, Ray's a pretty chill, inspiring person. He knows positivity like an old friend. Actually, they ARE old friends. Ray's an amazing friend to have, he finds ways to help you even if they are pretty stupid. Actually, the stupider the better. Why? Because MORE LAUGHS!!
Ray's super friendly and approachable, so don't hesitate to say a simple "Hi", because you won't regret it. Okay, you know what? Personally, I believe he 's worthy of the title "Senpai".
... I regret my choices. But trust me, he is. He's conducive and smart, plus he's... again, I can't believe I'm saying this, but...
He's cute. THERE I SAID IT PLUS I KNOW AT LEAST TWO PEOPLE WHO AGREE SO DON'T YOU DARE SHOUT #RAYDMM300 AT THE TOP OF YOUR LUNGS WITHOUT SHOUTING "LITTLE_RAYWP" (omfg that ship name still cracks me up XD) AND "PHAY WITH THE FEMALE PHOENIX". Although saying nothing at all would be much better. Saves you your breath.
Also conducive means helpful.
