    Hello beautiful humans of the forums!!! I hope you're all staying safe and taking care of yourselves and having a super amazing day/evening/night (also some of you may be asleep, in which case, sweet dreams!). I'm not really sure how to start this, but I'm aware that I'm not the greatest at stringing words together to make beautiful-sounding sentences, so I won't make it too long, otherwise you'll get bored xD

    I, along with my siblings, joined the BrokenLens forums in May 2016, after playing on the servers for a few weeks. It's been 4 years. It's been the best of times. It's been an honour to be part of what I think is one of the most unique and precious communities in the world. I have enjoyed every single moment of having a place in this huge but tight-knit family.

    However, you might have noticed that over the last couple of years, and particularly the last few months, I've been...drifting a way a little, perhaps? I haven't been as active; I've sometimes left people's conversations unanswered for a lot longer than I should have done. As various people have pointed out, I've become pretty bad when it comes to updating my status and profile pic xD

    In all truthfulness, I AM drifting away from BrokenLens. Sadly and inexplicably. It's not something that, even a year ago, I thought would ever happen. I don't want to leave any of this magic behind. But at the same time, I don't feel as connected to this place as I used to. I don't have the same passion and the endless need to want to spend time here.

    That sounds really cold, to be honest; actually that came out way worse than it sounded in my head xD I still love all of you the same - there's nothing that could ever change that. But, sort of inevitably, I guess, people change and life changes and we move on from things we used to hold impossibly close and we find new passions and new adventures; new avenues whose doors we didn't even notice before.

    Like I said, every single person here will ALWAYS, ALWAYS, mean the world to me. BrokenLens is a place that will always occupy a huge space in my heart; it's a place full of people who have always been there for me during my teenage years; it's a community that, no matter what was going on in my life, was never too far from my mind.

    I can't quite articulate how I feel about BrokenLens. 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'm in touch with some of them on other social media platforms which I'm extremely thankful for because I don't ever want to let go of those friendships.

    So... yeah. In all honesty, we'd be here for hours if I kept on writing about how much I love this community. But I can hear everyone groaning that this boring "speech" has been going on for so long, so I'll sort of stop here :p

    But, if you DO want to look at something even more boring, I've put together a short montage of screenshots and videos of some of my absolutely most treasured memories from the last 4 years here. I set up a YouTube channel specifically for this, here's the link if you'd like to check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?u=BSBcnu0Vyo

    If you've got this far - thank you so much for reading!! I'm gonna hang around for a couple of days before finally leaving, so this isn't the last you'll hear from me (wow, just LEAVE already, I know xD). I'm on Discord, if anybody would like to stay in touch - username is Ray_Palmer_Atom#0447 :superhappy:

    Anyway. It's been a dream. Thank you to every single friend I've ever made on here, and every single person I never got the chance to talk to. I love you. I can't put into words how much it means that you've been a part of my life. That's why saying goodbye is so incredibly difficult because no matter what I say, it won't possibly be meaningful enough.

    I wish everyone all the very best with everything they do. You're all amazing humans, please go follow all your dreams and look after yourself and look after those around you and go around spreading kindness and keep being magical and keep making the world a beautiful place :D

    Love only <333

    Ray

    Rayray! You were one of my first friends. I know it sounds stupid but when I think of someone leaving this server when I have no contact with them, i get scared. A knot ties in my stomach because I know I wont be able to talk to them and most likely never seem them again. Thats why from now on I want EVERYBODY who says they might be quitting to give me their discord / twitter / anything really. I cant lose people who I used to spend hours playing a minecraft server with. It was so magical, and possibly made me who I am today.
