(For lack of clever titles to write here.)
I know I just referenced this in my Opinions thread and quite short notice, but yeah, I'm retiring my position as a Custom Cards moderator after 4 years and 5 months (give/take a few days) on the job.
Why am I retiring?
Put bluntly, I face all 400-level courses in civil engineering from here on out, and if this semester's workload was any indicator, I will not have the time to be here / execute my duties properly and handle things at the same time if I want to graduate soon / get my full-time job.
(I do have a part-time job, but I cannot rely on it forever.)
I've known from the beginning that my time here wouldn't last forever.
I've been a staff member since July 12th, 2014 and well, seen the site change dramatically over that time. When I took this job long ago, I came on with the intent on making a difference for Custom Cards (and well, provide Zextra with a bit of help at the time). Looking back at how my section has become over the years, I think the place has gotten better, despite some of the setbacks of the time.
Granted, there have been bad points during my career and I can't say that I'm happy with myself in terms of how any of that turned out.
(I had more things that I wanted to do for the section and YCM altogether, but life just didn't allow for that to happen.)
What are you going to do now?
I won't leave entirely, but my presence won't be as frequent as it has been over the years. However, you can still find me on Discord in general or on Duel Portal.
I know some of you see me on both.
(DP name is Sakura Haruno, or my previous name prior to this one. Discord is located on profile.)
Before the chronicle of Sakura's modship closes and like actual cherry blossoms, scatters into the winds of history, I wish to say that it's been a pleasure serving you these past couple years and I hope for the section / site's future in the years to come.
I won't forget any of the memories made here, and those of you who I've gotten to know over the years.
If I end up not seeing you guys again, then...
Aloha a hui hou.
(Bye, until we meet again.)
