    It's Never Goodbye...


    5 years ago I joined the AJSA as a member much like the majority of you reading this. I had just gotten a PS4 right at its release. A lot of my friends didn’t jump on board right away, and who could blame them it was still a pricey investment. So I had no one to play with, figure I give a gaming community a try, what could go wrong! Joined on the site, became invested with the forums, and found other people looking for others to play games with. I discovered we could make a crude chatroom system with the PS4 messaging feature, and began to bring all kinds of AJSA members into it. That’s where it all started, a single man with a selfish want to have people to play with.

    If I could go back and tell myself all of the things I did in the past 5 years. That he would be a Game Officer, and soon a Commander that represents the PS4. That he would grow to think of these people on the PS4 as friends and family. That he get to run an event series that went on for 4 years. He laugh, he wouldn’t believe it, and hell that’s not even the half of it. But I think he would be proud, that his selfish want helped others out in a strange way.

    I’ve seen a lot of people come and go. Commanders, Game Officers, members, some of my Team over the years. But I stuck around, because I enjoyed the little life we built on the PS4 side. I was told once “Stick you’ll be here till the end at this rate. You’ll out exist ever Commander, watch all the Officers step away, and even see decay before your eyes. At this rate you’ll be the last man standing.” At the time it was a funny joke, born from my determine nature to have the last word. But as the years went on that “joke” got too real for me, and I got tired.

    I don’t know what the future holds. I never been good at predicting it. But I know one thing, as long as someone has one crazy idea others will follow. Like the late Stan Lee said “You know, I guess one person can make a difference.” From the bottom of my heart, thank you everyone. I know I’ve helped others over the past years, but really you all help save me.

    It’s never goodbye, oh no it’s!...

    See you later. - WithaStick
