I've realized I've never done one of these, and there are probably a ton of you out there who might not know me, so figured I'd (finally) make a formal introduction! You may be a close friend of mine, a mentee/previous mentee, have seen me around the forums, or have never heard of me whatsoever, so whatever your relationship is with me, I figured this was long overdue. So, hey! I'm Umbreon, but my IRL name is Alex; you can refer to me however you please. My pronouns are she/her and I live in the eastern United States. I'm 18 years old and will be turning 19 this coming November, and I'm a senior in high school. I have been accepted to university in upstate New York and will be attending there this fall! I've met my roommate and I'm incredibly excited to go. I will be majoring in biology, although I probably want to do something more specifically with biotechnology. If I end up really disliking the major, my backup is business. On Mineplex, I'm a two-time staff member first joining the team way back in late 2017. In 2019 I was promoted to Staff Management, which I really enjoyed being a part of. I had to resign late 2019 due to school and personal reasons, but I returned in June of 2020; I'm super happy to be working with the staff team again. As of current I am a Mentoring Assistant and a forums team member (both for the second time!). On the forums team, I also work as an Appeals member, which as the name suggests, I help handle punishment appeals. I've been on a plethora of subteams in the past, but these two are the ones I feel are most worth noting. Mineplex is and has been a huge part of my life and I'm super grateful for all the opportunities I've been given. I don't play many games anymore but you can most likely catch me in Nano if I do happen to play. In terms of other video games, I mainly play Pokemon (and am really excited for the Diamond/Pearl remakes coming later this year). I also really enjoy a game called Hollow Knight which quite honestly has been the most fun I've had playing a video game in quite some time. I got it a month or so ago and already have exceeded 60 or so hours. I also really like Animal Crossing for the Switch and some other miscellaneous Steam games. If you'd like to swap Switch friend codes feel free to shoot me a message! I am also a huge fan of anime, currently my favorite is The Promised Neverland but I also really enjoy others like My Hero Academia and Death Note. I am currently close to finishing Hunter x Hunter and is already probably one of the best shows I've ever watched. I also am trying to finish up the Attack on Titan manga, which I'm really enjoying. That's all from me really, it's a shame I never really ever got to post one of these. If you ever want to chat, feel free to shoot me a message!
