Hello there, I apologize if this brushes off as being spontaneous, but I need to excuse myself from the forums and servers for an extended period of time. As of late, I have been temporarily eliminating distractions that have been interfering with my concentration with important outside matters such as my studies. Collaborating with users here on the forums/ slack/ GitHub has been a very fun past time for me, but 99% of it must be set aside for now. It won't be permanent--I just need time for myself to focus and critically reflect. I am uncertain as to how long I will be away, but is guaranteed to be more than a month. Quarters last 11 weeks, each. Additional information: If in the event that a decision is made to remove me from staff for the reason of being away for too long, I will be okay with that. I would be more than happy to reapply for staff and steadily work my way back up again as is required for everyone else. In addition, even without being a part of staff I will still opt to continue with helping out as I have done previously when I return. During my leave, please do whatever you'd like to with the songs that I've added to the server playlist. Once in a while I might pay a visit to the forums to check on whether or not anything's on fire. Depending on my time I may even be able to help out with a ban request/ staff application or two. I might, at the end of each week, release a post of my status (but I make no guarantees). If conferences are ever held, I will allocate time towards participating. However once they finish up, I will need to excuse myself. Again, sorry to disappoint, but I have greater priorities at hand that require the utmost of undivided attention from me. I hope most of you will understand and not misinterpret this as abandonment. Remember: I'm not turning away from the community and I will be back!
