Xayj(OD) 2.0 (Re-introduction)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello OD Gamers!

 

It's been over 2 years (862 days as of this post) since I joined OD Gaming as an official member. A lot has happened since then. I've helped lead several divisions, I've created one of my own. I've made some great friends and have done a lot. I brought back the OD News Letter (even though most of this year it's been fairly inactive). I helped create the R&R squad that's now a committee with @CompFreak(OD). I started the rules committee alongside @Badboi(OD) and several other members who joined once it was formed. I also created and help closely monitor and support our now official OD discord sever that sees more and more activity the longer we've had it.

 

These are just some of the things I've poured my heart and soul into over the time I've been here. But with the good comes the bad. During my time here I had a problem learning how to balance my time in OD with my IRL responsibilities. I let myself get overwhelmed by the workload I put on my shoulders and always told myself I had to do it for it to be right. It wasn't until recently that I learned that I needed to start putting myself first or I would lose myself and both my mental and physical health would suffer for it and they have.

 

That is why for those of you who know me and those who don't. I've taken such a large step back recently from the forefront of the community. I used to be the first person to jump on a new project or to help get a division going. I was also happy to dedicate endless hours to try and help improve OD Gaming as a community. But I learned that this wasn't feasible for me anymore.

 

So I'd like to re-introduce myself. I'm Xayj. I'm a casual gamer that loves playing games with friends and chatting until the sun goes down( and sometimes back up again). I wear my heart of my sleeve and I'm loyal to a fault. Lately, you would find that I've been playing a lot of single player games. I just beat the new God of War and have been playing farcry 5. I spend a LOT of my free time enjoying as much content as I can from the company Rooster Teeth and their various groups. I'm a huge film buff and see as many movies as I practically can. When I have the attention span for it. I try my best to keep up with all my favorite books and anime as well.

I hope if during my more inactive period I've left some of you with a bad image of me, you might give me a second chance at a first impression. If not that's all good and well. Not everyone is going to like me. Either way. I'm marking this as a clean slate for myself in OD. Going forward my main goal is to spend as much time bettering myself as a person and spending more time with all my friends and doing the things I love. I hope that as I did when I joined OD, I can be friends with as many of you as I can.

No, lol

 

I just felt that It's been too long and I'm not around on TS or playing games with as many divisions as I used to. So getting to know people the way I used to is a much more difficult task. I figure writing a re-introduction was a good way to reach out to the community in a more passive way than my usual in your face I'm xayj here .i am, talk to me method.

 

While I do love helping the community. Right now becoming a general again isn't really something I'm even close to considering. Stepping down was a hard decision but one I needed to make. I'm just happy to be around and play some games right now. When/if I'm ready to be a general again. I'll have the support of the community.

Hmmmm we all have to find that balance, irl vs gaming.  At times it is tough, but worth it.  I think you were on the way out as I came on board.  I'm Cindy.  My obsession is spreading the love of the color purple and making people happy.  Beyond that, hey if you find yourself on D2 or on TS, I'm sure we'll meet.  As my favorite quote states, frowning makes more wrinkles then smiles.  So enjoy, just simply enjoy being.  🙂

The love for purple is something we share. It's actually my favorite color as well. I don't remember exactly when you came in. But I know it was before I was a general.

Interesting non interviewed known fact and alike; it's my favorite color too.

Hi! I don't know you and you don't know me. I'm new 'round these here parts. I play D3 and PoE and WoW(when budget allows HAHA) and LoL... but I do completely understand how easy it is to get run down and how it's hard to remember to put yourself first. For those of us who love helping people it doesn't seem so obvious sometimes we need to care for ourselves first.

It's like the airplane scenario... put your mask on first before you help others....  HAHHA

If you ever want someone to play with who's pretty mediocre but fun holla at your girl 😄
