아리랑 아리랑 아라리요
아리랑 고개로 넘어간다
나를 버리고 가시는 님은
십리도 못가서 발병난다
Arirang, Arirang, Arariyo. . .
I’m crossing over Arirang Pass.
The one who throws me away and leaves me
will not go even ten li before his feet hurt.
(rough english translation by me)
I’ve made many memories here, both good and bad, but it’s time for me to move on. I won’t write a long speech like Senpai did, because I’m not that eloquent, but I gave you a song, so I guess that should count towards something. . . I’m not sure what though.
Anyways, to all those who consider themselves my friends here, and all those who I consider my friends, thank you.
Before I go, I’d like to share a little sentiment.
The SAMB is a mini-society, a model of a world, and though there are many differences- such as the fact that the SAMB is populated entirely with children and teens who are aged anywhere from 8-17, and that there are moderators filtering what we say- we can still learn from this society, like how a model of an ecosystem you might have made in science class can help you learn about how the real world works. Many of us are mentally afflicted, or simply socially awkward. This website, this small community, helps us get used to interacting with people. I myself have learned a lot here, though I’ve only been here a short time. This website helped me with my anger problems in real life, and having people to talk to who understood my internal struggles really helped me get over the toughest times, when depression struck.
So what?, you ask.
So, I sincerely hope that all of you will keep this an open place for anyone and everyone, and welcome all these people who have so much more in common with you than you think.
Please, continue to keep this a mostly-pure, supportive, and wonderful community.
. . . At this point, I feel like I should mention the wars. But there’s nothing to say about them. People come into conflict all the time, and that is just part of being so perfectly flawed, part of being human.
Once again, thank you so much.
It’s been a great two-and-a-half years.

i finally noticed somewhere along the way
the changing seasons painted the town a new color
fluttering flowers dance as my heart wavers
what will be left when it's all over?
in this bittersweet place
i want to stay my old self forever
