Hello everyone, and thanks for clicking this thread! I'd like to start off by saying thank you all for an amazing two years on this site! It's all been a blast, good or bad times, and I wouldn't take back any of it! I've made some fantastic friends and had memorable times with all of you, and I want to wish you all the best of luck in any venture you do in the future, as I'm sure you wish to me. I'll start off by giving a small biography of me. My name is Vincent Joseph [insert Italian Surname Here], since I'm not giving you my last name heh. I was born on July 6th, 2001 (One day before Bungie Day dammit!) and am currently only 12, the youngest staff member ever elected and the youngest MoM ever initiated. I go to a Catholic school, but I myself am an Atheist, however I'm a very tolerant person! My favorite video game(s) of all time is a very odd scenario, as the position of favorite is held by two games, Halo 3 and The Last of Us. Since I couldn't choose between either, I just put them both there. Other franchises I love include Mass Effect, Bioshock, Assassin's Creed, Metro, Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, Dishonored, Far Cry, The Sims, Watch_Dogs, Borderlands, and the list goes on and on and on and on. I currently own a PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Wii, and a PC, but I do plan on purchasing an Xbox One and a Wii U. As can be seen, I am a multi-platform gamer, I don't swear allegiance to Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, or Valve, I love them all and want to experience what all four have to offer. I'm not a big film guy, but my favorite film is The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, with close favorites like Pacific Rim and The Wolf of Wall Street. My favorite book is The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and I love the film adaption as well, even though I expected not to. I started out joining the site as SpartanKIL and a slue of other names, but for now, let's use my current name. So I started off as Edward Kenway and did very little to 'help' the forum out or even participate. Long story short, I lost my account, came back in 2013, and started doing Roleplaying. I had a few friends, few who I cared about truly and fewer still of those who are still here. Some notable ones are Ledgend1221 and AIGamerGirl, who I rarely contact anymore but they seem to be still here. Anyways, a metamorphosis happened and I became Edward Kenway! More roleplaying ensued and I discovered Skype... A horrible move by me, and I began doing most of my roleplaying there and most of my troublemaking headbutts in the Shoutbox with mods here. There, I soon began dating an ACTUAL MEMBER here, who I won't name for legal reasons (not really, just too lazy to look her up). Our relationship crumbled soon after, and we stopped talking. She also left the forums, and to my knowledge, never came back. It was hard on me at first, but I grew over it. After that I had nothing really left, and took it out on the forum, which got me a total of two warning points within two weeks time, during two baaaaaad weeks time, as I was having real life troubles. I had an epiphany having two weeks without a shoutbox, and I did something I never thought I'd do. I stopped. I wasn't rude, I wasn't boastful, and I wasn't overreactive and easily irritated. I didn't let little things get to me, and I did a complete 180. I began working for the forum, rather than against it, doing news articles, my first being a Destiny Drawing Board article, that I don't like to admit is my own considering it was mainly copy/pasted. I did very few copy/pastes during my time here, and as time went on I was approached by Cooliest, who gave me tips and for that I was immensely grateful. As I did more and more articles and attended more and more playdates and interacted more and more in the shoutbox, one February morning I had discovered something, something that I think changed me. I woke up, saw that there was a Shoutbox link for the new MoM, but I didn't look at it, no, I stopped for a second, and said 'Hello?' in the shoutbox, and the breath was knocked out of me. Edward Kenway, not just regular Edward Kenway but Edward Kenway, I, was MoM! I had no reaction but surprise. I clicked the thread and... Admittedly, teared up at Red's words, reading down to see all of your words, it made me so overjoyed to see this, and I was actually accepted universally on the forum, I was part of something big, and I had a big part in it... Nothing could get better, right? I kept on my usual thing, doing news, making friends, attending playdates, and being typical Edward, when RedStarRocket91 himself offered me a chance to do something more. He had asked that I join the News Group, where all I could do was smile for a minute. I called my best friend up (who isn't on the forum) and told him the news, and he congratulated me on the position. I gladly accepted, and the next day, I became Edward Kenway, the goal I had aimed for for a very, very long time. It was amazing, and nothing could change it, that's what I had hoped, right? Then... I took a dip down the mountain, a dip that I didn't return from. An altercation with an old-time member here as well as fellow Staff over Skype (that bloody thing gets me in all the trouble doesn't it?) caused me to get what I never hoped to get again... A warning point. I was devastated in myself, that I had done wrong. I immediately sent a PM to Red, not an angry PM, not an defensive PM, an apologetic PM. I was angry alright, at myself, that I let it get like this after I had told myself it never would. I was disappointed in myself, for doing what I did, and for disappointing Red, who, with the kindness of his heart, told me he truly wasn't disappointed in me, and I believed him, hell I still do. But, the past is in the past now, it needs to stay that way. Anyways, a little bit about family life then? I have two sisters who are utterly nothing like me at all, my mum, and my dad, as well I live with my grandfather from Italy (how I picked up some Italian) and my uncle and aunt who I never see because they never leave their home. They're okay I guess, I don't hate any of 'em, just rarely interact with them, especially with my dad in the hospital (getting out soon, yay!). Before I get into my Q&A asked by the wonderful members I'd like to thank some people. My best friend Anthony, dude, you're a massive pain, but you've always been there and gotten me up, thank you. Mach10Creation, or just Janay to me, you're a stellar friend/rival, and I look forward to you breaking my arm next year, see ya then. Bnus, man, you're the most insane person I know, in a good way, thanks for sticking with me though bro, couldn't be here without you. RedStarRocket91 and Absolute Dog, thank you for serving as moderators here on this great forum, and for being pillars and supports to help me reach where I am now with your own examples. And Azaxx, because he blackmailed me to get here or I'd be banned (jk). If you aren't on here, that doesn't mean you didn't help me, but it means I'm running out of time and I'll add you later. "What is your career goal/ if you are going to go to college what do you want to major in?" ~Yoshi1176 I really like this one, so I put it first. My career goal is to go into Journalism somewhere, either on the field or from a writing standpoint, as I dislike the idea of sitting at a desk all night and reporting shootings. Either I'm hands on with the shootings, or I write the newspaper article on them. Gaming Journalism is a field I would ADORE to get into, but I feel it wouldn't give enough profit for me to live on unless I worked at like IGN. Also, I will go to College and I would like to major in Journalism, as well I hope to do so for the Sciences and History related fields, as those I do expertise in as well. Thanks for the question Yoshi! "How Can Mirrors Be Real If Our Eyes Aren't Real" ~JLMeteorYokoShowerWhateverHisNameIsThisWeek The simple fact is that our eyes ARE real, but Mirrors can be holographic projections or optical illusions given the case and depending on the factors. Did I really need to put JL's name there to know it was him? Not in the slightest. Thanks for the question JL! "Are we in a relationship? Like seriously I want to know" ~Connor Kenway If you mean as a family, yes, considering you are my grandson. If not, ew. Thanks for the question Connor! "Are you purple?" ~Ardent Prayer Are you colorblind? "Why do you fail so much?" ~Ledgend1221 Failure is not an option when you're with OPTIMUS PRIME! ROLL OUT AUTOBOTS. "How do you want to further your site career?" ~Anonymous I plan on continuing to do what I do day in and day out, news and shoutbox, and I don't plan on stopping for a looooong time. "What game are you looking forward to most in 2014?" ~Anonymous That is a difficult question, I have to say Destiny, but I also want the MC collection and LBP3 badly. Well, that's about all I had planned today. Thank you all so much for these past two years, I hope to see another successful two in the future, and to go into Infinity! I care about all of you deeply, and I wish you all the best going into Fall of 2015 and beyond! Peace! P.S. I wanted to make this my 1,000th post, but I forgot and by the time I realized it was too late. P.P.S Creds to Austin for the banner!
