i can't afford a diary, so this will have to do
n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.

    Hey Gav, just wanna say that you're an amazing person with a big heart. It isn't easy to write this huge essay of a blog post, but it's an action that will never go unnoticed. I'm sure you will be forgiven for whatever you have done. We are human after all; we make mistakes. Thank you very much for the suggestions for PC, and also for the kind words. They mean a lot to me and to all of us. I really do hope to see you around, and maybe we can catch up and have a good chat. Lots of love! Take care. <3

    suuuuppperrrr late but hey

    I wouldn't say that you've lost my respect, I mean it did get a little nasty in that thread but I understand your thought process and I get it, I really do. One little mistake at the end doesn't erase the previous 6 years of good you've done here, and I still consider you a friend and I still respect you for all you've done here.

    I love you more than you could possibly know and I'm happy to be mentioned here. You are someone who has made me a better person by being friends with me and for that I am grateful. You are definitely one of the brighter spots of my time here on PC my love.

    gav <3 i didn't read it all yet but aaaa. even at your worst i can never think badly of you; you're easy to talk to and we share similar opinions more often than not so it's really easy for me to just come to you and rant about whatever when i feel the need, haha. really do hope you'll continue coming on because things are really going to be strange otherwise. you were like a staple here.

    much love!

    If you feel that you made a mistake, then you did something good. Stepping down and thinking your next move isn't a bad idea. However. Nobody deserves to be treated like muk, just for some thought. If you don't feel confident about somebody, the best thing that you can do is put them to a test. Life is like this, we need to work with people that we hate or that we don't trust. But.... Does that mean that we need to throw everything that we made down?, just because we don't like somebody?. I think no. There's nothing wrong on being blunt with somebody, but it's not worthy to make them look bad in front of everybody. Because, that's the kind of actions that speak about us. And how we are as persons. If I don't like somebody, I take my thoughts to that person if I can. There's no need to fake a "friendship" here. If you think that something unfair happened, that's life again sadly. There's always something that we find unfair, but... Everybody needs a chance here. There's always a chance to make a new friend, maybe no, but if you ask me, it's better to see how somebody gives a damm about you. Than making an enemy.

Keep your head up, keep positive and it will stand to you. I hope that you achieve your goals. You’re still young, but you seem to be a really intelligent guy (and a great battler too!). Hope I see you around buddy.
    That's nice, thanks a lot. Even if we didn't had the chance of chatting too much.

    Good luck out there, I'm sure you're going to do just fine.

    ....Man, what should I say? I'm at a loss for words. Truth be told, I'm not good at expressing gratitude. Heck, I even felt really awkward giving shoutouts in Celebrations, which has always made me feel like I should've said more to the individual than I did. But here, I suppose I will let it all out, yeah?

    Gavin, you are one heck of a guy. At least, putting it that way! I'm not gonna lie, the fact that we used to butt heads a lot was pretty much widely known (at least, to those who saw), and we constantly came into conflict with one another's perspectives. Yeah, I will admit, I felt bad about what transpired between us recently, but truth be told, I really don't want that experience to really color our friendship, so to speak. I've...come to quite a realization myself. Why is it that I constantly overwhelm myself, why is it that every time, it seems like the past has repeat itself when I never wanted it to? For years I've tried to struggle with that answer, but it was just that--I've tried, and tried, and tried, that eventually led to quite an erratic and unfavorable change in my character and demeanor. I've just tried too much to the point where I lost sight of myself and I lost sight of what was truly important to me.

    Gav, I really wish we could've gotten to known one another a lot better over recent years. I remember when I first met you, and I shared with you that I wanted to become a supporter, but I didn't have the means to go about doing so, myself. Being the kind soul you are, you donated for me. Being a supporter was all I wanted at the time, and you made that happen. I just remember how, yes, we were so close years ago, and all of a sudden, we just drifted apart. I wish that didn't happen, but what can I say? The past is for us to learn from, not to dwell on. I've learned that lesson in so many hard ways so many times.

    I wish the best for you and your future, Gav. For what it's worth, I do forgive you. It just wouldn't be right of me to do otherwise and I'm definitely not that kind of person that's going to hold a grudge because of a possible misunderstanding. It sucks, but it happens. I know that you're a person that cares deep down about PC overall, and I wish I could've seen that.

    Thanks for your hard work and dedication, Gav. It won't be forgotten.

    Also, I may not be the best conversationalist...I may not be the best at trying to articulate myself, but I do hope that someday, we do catch up with each other and talk and have a good friendship like we did in the past. I miss that a lot.

    This was a really good read Gav and I am glad you came back to post this because a lot of people were left in the dark about the whole thing considering only even a portion of us on staff got to read your thread.

    You're a great guy at heart and this blog shows that. You're also dedicated and very passionate about PC which is probably why things happened like they did. None of that matters though as you can't erase all that you have done here, which is more than most of us. It's sad to see such a driving force behind PC go but your reasons are valid, life is first and I wish you the best in that regard. I'd love to see you around some here and even more at the battle server. You are a fun guy to have around there! Best wishes buddy!

    I'm kinda sad you didn't last very long in the admin role here, because I knew there was so much potential in you.

    But anyhow, good luck with what real life has to throw at you. And do check back on your old PC friends when you can.

    I think you have an overall good mindset for the forum and whatever terrible things you might of said I feel like could have been said out of passion because you do care about pc, and sometimes we say the worst when we care about something.

    Anyway I think it's important to support anyone who wants to leave, be on less, etc. As real life is so important and I know how busy your life is without even including pc. I think it will be really great for you to finally put pc on the back burner and give your attention to the things that really matter in your life. I'll always be a friend for you to contact, even if we don't speak for 20 years between that time lol. You know I'll respond! ;D

    Well said. Though I don't know what excitement there were; other than perhaps maybe the flood of new mods and new activities going on now. :3

    To be honest I like a relaxing cup of coffee or tea. :3
