So I hear you like cinematic music...
*forgot to mention~ they're called Cinematic Pop -(wonder why? XD)
I see. I've listened to a cinematic cover of Viva la Vida, but I'd say this is better actually, it sounds like an actual symphonic song.
Here's a playlist I made with orchestral music - the "hybrid" part begins about halfway through. Do not listen to the last two songs if you're not familiar with deathstep... for your ears' safety.
haha thank you! I'll check it out rn! :D
Tenth post of 2021, brb off to drink to that.
man even i got less than that
Hello and welcome to the first instalment of DDDD, Dallarth's Daily Dose of Definitions. The first word which I will be defining for you today is "childish". Being childish has connotations of being impulsive, unreliable, self-centered, and irresponsible. It suggests you lack the capacity to think beyond yourself. That will be all for today's definition, I hope you all learned something!
Do Dallarth's Daily Doses of Definitions Dignify Disastrous Dams of Destruction?
Ninth post of 2021: it seems that both the quantity and quality of posts on the forums have decreased recently.
yes, and fmas are struggling
Eighth post of 2021. Keeping the tradition alive.
I tend to be completely oblivious of my public image. That goes for both real life and online. Although I often spontaneously share a lot of details about myself, it seems that I'm still sort of a mysterious person, and those who think they know me actually do not know me at all.
With that being said, I've talked to plenty of people, but no one except for probably one person would be able to connect all the parts of myself into something coherent. With that said, while the eventual history of my relationship with Minecraft will contain a complete story of the half of my life spent on-and-off with this game, for now there's a link to my introduction thread on my info page. Not a lot has changed on the surface since then, although it feels like there are more internal turmoils than ever before.
Seventh post of 2021: I might write down my Minecraft history at some point before I forget too many details from it.
Nowadays I'm mostly doing music production, I haven't opened Minecraft in roughly two months. If Mineplex makes any sort of comeback, I'll probably return for that.
If ever you want to play Bedrock and desire someone new to meet, I would love to join you to play anything or all of the games to find what is fun and what absolute isn't by shear utter failure or just don't get the logic of how one plays it... yes, Mineplex has had one I deemed impossible to understand despite sometimes winning and not knowing how. It is an offer, just message me and if i am capable of coming on when you want to I will definitely join you. No pressure.
I know of your wishes to return to staff (that is when I first met you here was when you were staff), and I read you post, the New Year's post, that talked about being gone and deciding to come back... I believe there was much to your post I could feel and relate to, maybe to different degrees. I should say 2020 despite the pandemic should have been a great year for me, it is when I achieved Level 100 exactly 3 years after I started at Mineplex. It should have been a happy achievement but for me it wasn't, I accomplished what most Bedrock players seek to achieve but verses being happy I was sad and depressed by it and just many other mineplex issues that made me feel unwelcome. The Level 100 triggered immediate sadness, it was a loss for me, many see it as a gain, I do but not as much as what I loss achieving it. I truly enjoy and sort of thrive on the leveling up process, knowing I have to get 250,000 xp to level to 100 is actually exhilarating to me. So the journey from level 1 to 100, was 1st, for the fun of playing the games and finding I do well in Turf Wars and Mob Arena to ultimately gain top leaders there, not from really trying to get to #1 but it happening from just my regular game play. 2nd, which would be tied with 1st, is the friendships. 3rd, sure leaders was a nice accomplishment I cannot deny.
But, all of it changed or came to end, all together, the leveling up was gone, never to accomplish again, friendship was not what I perceived and leaders was all that was left and that wasn't what was important to me. So I ultimately left, to find out what I wanted still here, so I stuck around on and off on here but not in game. I recently returned to both, here I struggle to stay alive, and somewhat in game... but I enjoy both and so I am trying to find my place that I fit into, that makes me happy vs others, which is hard because I thrive to have friendships but I must have a different meaning to the word than others because it is the most difficult thing to accomplish, well for me, and I usually don't understand why. I am not a bad person, just someone who feels way, way too much. Oh well.
As for Minecraft, if ever, and you feel comfortable with the invite, you are very much welcome to join me on my realm, explore, create, just talk to me when I am there, which is a lot. Or, just enjoy the peace of coming alone (which you can to a realm) to just get away. It is a peaceful place, at least I think so. When I don't want it to be I just go into survival and see if without armor (or, but with good weapons) I can survive the night without dying... lol! I can, just not always, the phantom and the enderman are my downfall to possibly not making it, oh and forgetting to eat.
So, both invitations are just that, open ended invites. Completely up to you, no pressure, just out there for you to consider and accept or dismiss... either way I am fine. Don't get me wrong, I would truly enjoy the company but it is open ended and completely your choice. Now on to answer your post on my wall ... which has been very difficult for me so has taken me a lot of thought and time.
@Mystic 0440 honestly I am at a loss for words lol, similar things happened to me while playing on Mineplex so I understand where you are coming from completely. I'd very much like to join, do you have discord so we can stay in touch? And don't worry about the question at all, if you're struggling it's fine to leave it unanswered.
Sixth post of 2021: @Dallarth wants a resurrection. Will it happen? Find out next time on Norn Ball Z.
My prediction: no
Wake up Mr Norn
Norn, you seem to have people that are dedicated to liking posts on your profile, it's amazing.
I'm pretty sure they're doing that to the entire website
Fifth post of 2021: Did you know that reading a 500 page, small font book in less than two days is impossible? Yeah, I just found out about that.
Fourth post of 2021: I died
Third post of 2021: I think I've now posted more times than I've logged onto the server this year
same man same
You seem cool
Oh hey, that's nice but you'd be disappointed
No idea how to be disappointed
I'd like to go back to the idea of nicknames
You are the hardest person to call anything but their username XD
Norny? Nornlet? Norn?
Why would you need anything other than Norn
i love the pfp
@TheArrow'sShadow here's another fan of yours
I often wish I was just a few years older. If I hadn't still been such a kid during the golden days of Minecraft & Mineplex, I would have remembered and contributed a lot more. I usually hate leaving thoughts unresolved, but this one keeps haunting me. As I said to one of my MP friends a few days ago, I would have been so happy if I had the opportunity to be around as a staff member here from the summer of 2015, all the way to last summer where I'd resign as a five year veteran, with the full experience and a sense of accomplishment. As a result, considering that the server is currently a pretty boring place all things considered, I am getting mixed feelings, something I'm usually able to overcome quickly.
But hey, not all is that dull. A new chapter lies ahead.
First post of 2021, how is everyone doing?
is this shit over yet
Why do I hear boss music?
As much as 2019 was one of the better years recently, 2020 was one of the worst. After a shortened winter break and the surge of the virus, I found myself without the energy to complete the most basic school tasks. Together with the emotional pain that I pretty much caused to myself, there are more than enough reasons to call 2020 an absolute failure of a year.
As for Mineplex, it started off somewhat good actually. I had moved on past the crises of my Trainee trial and was a happy Moderator on RP, later FM as well - the only setback being the RA rejection. However, due to online school and a few other factors, I resigned on April 4. I soon found that suddenly leaving the place I had loved so dearly was another mistake on my part. I tried returning as soon as two months later, even filing two reinstatement applications, but in truth, I wasn't capable of returning yet, as I was still going through a pretty tough phase of healing and self-doubts. By the end of summer, things had somewhat improved, and I was able to focus on the real world and keep up with school once again. While at first I thought it wouldn't make sense to make a return here since it's not particularly 'useful', I always considered being here to be a great pastime in many different ways. And when I got bored, I would just take a small break.
With that said, my 2021 resolution for this place (and mostly in general) is to try new things, be less afraid, make small and meaningful changes around me and have fun.
2020 has caused me to change a lot, but I have learned my lessons and I am ready to move on.
Thanks to @vili_gx and @Dallarth for always being by my side.
Happy New Year!
- future me
Out of the three strongest earthquakes I've ever felt, three of them happened this year, the latest occuring two hours ago. They were three different quakes at different locations. All I'm wondering is how that is possible.
I'm back on Mineplex again for the amazing XP in DMT. Since Christmas is very near for me, I also wish a very Merry Christmas to everyone!
Flew over to your wall to wish you a merry Christmas!
