Well, I’m sure the word is well enough out by now for most of you, but I’ve joined the Marine Corps, and I’m headed off for Boot Camp soon. I’m signed on for a four year tour of active duty, so I don’t know if I’ll ever see or talk to you guys again. I’m an electronic communications mechanic, so odds are I’ll be able to access a computer now and then, but I can’t be sure so I just want to make sure I’ve said this. I’m gonna miss you all, and as part of my goodbye, I’ve written a short blurb on what I’ll miss the most about all of you. I know some of them don’t seem like it, but these are from the heart, so I hope they’ll help you remember me as much as they help me remember you.

It’s been an honor and a privilege meeting and getting to know all of you, and you’ve been a big part of my life. You’ve helped me grow as a person in many areas, and you’ve been there for me when I was down. Thank you, all of you. I’ll never forget you.

(please note. the order listing has nothing to do with how important any one person was to me, this is simply the order in which i was able to think of names. it took me nearly six months to make this and write a blurb for all of you. i never bothered to reorder the names because i love all of you, and couldn’t bring myself to place any one person above the others. you’re all very special to me, and i hope this helps you realize that.)(i’m crying as i type this)

The original thread no longer runs the way it used to, but the users will always be in my heart. They taught me much.

Insomniacs [docs.google.com]
I only knew you guys for a short time, but you too touched my heart.

Other /arch/ Users [docs.google.com]
I don’t know where I met some of these people, but /arch/ became my home, and I believe I met them there. They gave me fond memories.

Sorry we never got to speak much Bleeding, but i've been putting a lot of time in my personal things and such, but i do hope to get to know you more as time goes by this last week, or when i hope you come back to us.

It has been great knowing you this time, and hope it continues so.

I don't think I've ever talked to you, but nevertheless, take care of yourself man. I don't know what to say, except try not to let them get you down. Do you think you'll be able to watch ponies at all, at least? If nothing else, bring something so you can watch episodes that have already been released?

We've definitely talked at some point. Was a hella long time ago though. I recall back in 2013 I recognized you. Still have no idea when we met because we've not spoken much since.Maybe it was on /ooc/ I went there when I first created Rainstream.

Oh, I will definitely watch ponies if I can. I'mma pull a Tyrian Lannister on that one

That was probably it. I've seen you in /arch/ all the time, I just never really talked that much.
I don't think I ever posted on /ooc/.
by chance, do you remember someone posting as, or did you post as, if I remember correctly, Rainbow Dash with a dark fire-ish halo, or something like that in /rp/ in 2011? That might be it. If that isn't you, I haven't seen that guy since 2011
>"Be proud of who you are. Wear it on your chest like armour, and no one will ever be able to use it against you."
That's a good quote to live by. Considering the stigma though, I imagine it'll be far worse in the Marines, so try not to sperg out too much :P

you poor poor son of a bitch. i hope you're ready for the worst three months of your life.

if the DI shows you a picture of a woman and asks you if she looks good, you have no opinion either way.

i dont give a shit who told you to do it, do not buy tampons to polish your boots with.

when you're being taught to shower by numbers your DI will stand in the center of the rain room in nothing but his hat with a shower cap over it. dont laugh at it. i know you're going to want to but don't.

the DIs have the power to shut physics off on your first friday there.

do not shave your head before you go. they will wax you until they find hair.

do not, under any circumstances call your rifle a "gun" or a "firearm" weapon is the only acceptable name for it.

don't use a sir sandwich ever. you will regret it for the next three months.

its not a hat, its a cover.

always volunteer for firewatch.

In a word... familial. /P/AD became my home on the internet. That place where I could run to to relax, talk about problems, or just have a good time. They were my family. I really do miss everyone that doesn't come anymore. They gave me so much, and meant so much to me. I'll never forget any of them.

Of course, also like a family, there were fights, and disputes. Poor communication often leads to misunderstandings, and left unclarified those can create entire rifts between friends. Sometimes people just do silly or dumb things. But we're all family in the end, and I wouldn't give up any of them for anything.

Well, I guess that's not really true. I mean, life is full of sacrifices. You have to learn to give and take, and if I have to give up all of you beautiful people for a while, I guess that's just part of life. But you hang on to those precious moments that you can, and you cherish them close to your heart. Maybe this thread can do that. Save it for me, will you?

you should have heard the cadence I had the guys sing the other day

We travel down the road
Joined by a common bond
Sing our song around the world
From America and beyond

There's no place I'd rather be
Than running with my family
Brothers gather round to sing
We're United States Marines

Peas in a pod and thick as thieves
Any cliche you can throw at me
Stick together through thick and thin
We are Marines we are kin

We are Marines together
We're family and so much more
No matter what the weather brings
We are Marines to the core

It's a shame we never really got to chat more, Raindrops. You really seem like a great person, and I can tell that you've made many friends here.

I too wish you the best of luck in boot camp, and I hope that you will be okay during these next four years. Make sure to eat well, stay warm, and get a healthy intake of ponies whenever you have the opportunity.
