Ex Nihilo Nihil Fit. Mar 24, 2019
image"From nothing comes nothing"

Back on August 14th, 2012, I was in an MSN chat with some people I had played Big Brother/Survivor games with from another website, and I had heard of this site called Tengaged.  I figured, hey, why not!  Maybe it'll be something fun to do while I passed the time.  Eventually, I had found that Tengaged and I had grown into each other, and it led to over 6 and a half years that spanned 300 games, and it all led here:


A special thank you to those who helped me in my 300th game!  You are all truly amazing!


You 12 have made this final game something truly special and gave me a truly happy ending.

This journey through Tengaged has been a hell of a ride!  Throughout my years, I have been through numerous friendships, many rough times, a plethora of moments where I felt I really had to shine, and some day, we all have to look back on our journeys when the time comes when we inevitably leave this place.  I've fought some of my greatest battles of Tengaged on here, took the crown in Castings with 40 consecutive wins, found a home in Survivor with the TrollSun tribe where I had a merge streak of 27, and have at one point even tried to continue the legacy of one of my greatest friends who is no longer with us today.  And why is this something I am proud to have done you might ask?  Ex Nihilo Nihil Fit.  There is nothing in life that will just be given to you.  You have to earn it, and so from nothing really does come nothing.

When I knew my time would be coming soon, I had thought to myself "what could I do that I still want to do before my time here is done" and thought through each of my options.  I focused on the goals I could complete and worked on those.  All in all, I'd say I'm pretty content with what I've accomplished here as a result.  There's just one or two things left to do and then I will log out.

First, if you would like to talk to me outside of Tengaged, mail me for Skype or mail me yours so I can add you.  Second, I am going to tag a few more people who have made my journey through Tengaged worthwhile.  If you're not tagged, do not worry.  I have not forgotten you, but I can't tag everyone you know!

And hey, who knows!  Maybe one day I will occasionally drop by to say hi.  But it's time for me to grow up, and I don't really know if Tengaged is a feasible place for me to stay anymore, so it's time I finally got a move on with my own life.  But until we meet again...

Yeah, imagine saying I couldn't win a race when I have actually run a decent 5k and have been on the track team.  I REALLY can't win races!

Consider this my 2 weeks notice Mar 12, 2019
Like I said in an earlier blog, once I play the next 2 games I join, I am done.  I just won't have the time to really take this place seriously anymore with everything in my real life about to go on.  So I think in less than 7 days, I will throw a 300th game charity Rooks to mark my farewell from games on this website.

I'll spend some time between now and then to see who'd join, but really, I just want to end my Tengaged career on a happy note.
