for those of you that don't know me, and im sure there are a lot of you, my name's storm. my first post was on january 13th of 2014 so that makes me 5 years old and also your grandmother.
i used to be pretty active a few years ago and i didn't ever picture myself leaving or getting inactive but... as you grow up you change more and you find other activities or things that you like a little more. and other people grow up and leave too and yeah. it just happened.
i guess i'll just talk a little bit about myself and share memories in seperate posts because i don't want this to get too lengthy.
i started on this website in the 4th grade. i chose stormbreeze because storms were cool and i was like "hey im gonna make that my username and it'll be really cool" and it was. i chose my nickname initially as storm, but i also used breeze as a secondary name. then i saw someone who's primary nickname was breeze, so i switched to storm and i've been storm ever since. i've been called many variations... stormy... stormeh.. stormy wormy.. sw/south west... i'll answer to those too if you want to use them.
i started using comic sans font before i knew it was a silly font because i thought it was imperfect and not fancy or anything... like it was someones handwriting. like it was actually me writing out these posts. i switched around between this and this and i probably typed in this for a while too. but i settled on the gray for the gray of storm clouds.
my signature has some meaning to it! *'s are the raindrops and ~'s are lightning bolts. they also look nice and i want my signature to look nice. and then i just kinda based the rest of my sig around that.
-i wanted some different colors, which is why the keywords are colored and bolded
-bible verse is just a verse i try to live by.. i can't say that i always have or always will, but it's something..
-the numbers at fullsig can take you to an old thread where i had a bunch of information about my samb self, my sambsona's house, my gang, other weird facts... it's pretty outdated. but i'll leave it there for the memories.
-#Pray: there used to be multiple #pray4(whoever needed praying for), so i just shortened it to #Pray because everyone needs some prayers and it also saved space
-#Casper: a ship with a couple of friends of mine, cassy and jasper. cassy was probably my best fourm friend... we did a ton of roleplaying together - serious ones and doomsdays alike. we also have a really long chat thread that's over a hundred pages long. i'm wondering how im going to save that thread... if i want to save all of it, or just some highlights... i'll have to see..
-#Midoraka: there's an anime called my hero academia. i don't think im a fan of the anime genre, but this is a pretty good show. i'd say its pg-13 in terms of rating. great writing, great animation, great music.. the hashtag is a ship between two characters, midoriya and uraraka. they're cute characters and cute together.
-#Xcurgle: a ship name between two words. yup. i shipped two made-up words together. xcudent.. i forgot it's name... hurgle... now hurgle was something else. hurgle was actually an explicitive that eris (now asteria) used, but then i somehow got into the habit of "collecting" them, and so did other people. eris also made up xcudent, so i shipped them together. im still in contact with eris through another place.
-#NiceDeliveryDudes: oh boy. this just references a real life story that i posted about. basically, some washing machine delivery guys helped seal a potential gas leak in my house. and i was really thankful at the time and i thought they should be immortalized... and they should be.
-#EveryPersonNeedsAKazoo: my middle school band teacher thought it would be a good idea to give a bunch of 7th graders a kazoo. "it will help us play better" my foot. no one could really take it seriously. i thought it was iconic, so i also immortalized it as my own hashtag.
-#Moresigspa-: a hashtag that was brought about so we could hopefully get more than 250 characters in our signature. it didn't work, but we tried.
and uhhh yeah that's my signature.
this is getting pretty lengthy, so again, i think i'll share some more random stories in later posts. or if anyone wants to say hello, i'll say hello to you back!
but... this website really contributed a lot to my adolescence... well, i am still a teenager. but it did. i met a ton of new fantastic people. i made so many friends, i looked up to so many people. i learned a lot about people different from myself. and i think that's great to experience - learning about people different than yourself and even seeing that hey, they're just as weird as you are. and also as amazing as you are too.
i started with hardly posting at all, to posting more frequently, developed people to look up to, became more active myself, became someone that other people looked up to... and then i started to slowly fade away and went back to rping. like i said before, i found other things i liked to do, and school picked up with more homework.. yeah. if you would've asked me 3 years ago about leaving the samb, i would've been really sad to leave. and im still sad to see this place go, but... i'm more cool with it now, now that i've moved on.. just because something ends doesn't mean that everything else has to end. you get to meet new people and do new things. and it can get scary.. but as long as you keep going, and keep on having an open mind... then it will be okay. not perfect, but it will be okay. you'll be okay.
now im only 15, but i still want to give you all advice anyways:it's easy to get sad that the SAMB is going away... so maybe focus on how thankful you are for it? you still got to experience it and enjoy it... and other people won't. so savor these memories, and enjoy the time that you have left.
i always liked to send with a final goodbye to my posts. in my earlier days, it would be "protect erdas!" and "always fight the conquerors!" and then later in my life i decided that i wanted people to know that they were loved. i started saying "jesus loves you all!" at the end of my posts. and then i switched to "god loves you all!" because i thought that might mean a little more. it's not intended to make anyone uncomfortable, and i apologize if it weirds you or someone out, becasue it's actually supposed to do the opposite. but now if i don't put a "god loves you all!" at the end of my posts... something just feels wrong. it's an old habit. so uh yeah, that's the little story behind my goodbye.
sorry for the lengthiness. that too, is also a habit of mine. i'll be posting more, but it's time to end this essay that i've written.
god loves you all!
Please tell us why you'd like to report this post
"Do not be overcome by evil,
but overcome evil with good."
Thank you, SAMB, for a wonderful experience.
