Semi-retired legal nerd.
I’m not going to try and made this seem like a sob story. I just thought I clear some things on regarding my activity.
So you may have been wondering where I’ve been. Maybe I’m continuing my “position badging” job or I’m focusing on another region more than TNP. Well I’m afraid to say that all of that is not true. I have decided that I will be stepping back from NationStates for now.
The simple reason is because I’ve lost interest in NationStates. After I took my unannounced hiatus back in late October-early November, not everyone was happy that I disappeared. However, I enjoyed my break from NS and since then I’ve begun to devote my time to another things on the internet and life in-general.
With that being said, I am resigning as Deputy Minister of Communications and the ministries (excluding the Defense Ministry.) I love working for TNP. But, I’ve come to realize that my glory days are long-gone. And speaking of which, I’ve also finally come to admit that a majority of my time in TNP has been position-badging. I did have plans if I were to get those jobs I said I wanted to get, not just get them and exploit them. But, I think it’s fair to say that I’m not the most active person and pretty lazy to most tasks.
I will be completing my term as Deputy Attorney General. If the future Attorney General wishes to keep me or dismiss me, I don’t mind. I’m honestly better off in a more lay back position than a mainstream position like Deputy AG. And since I do have a passion to law, I do think I’m best staying where I am. That is to say that though that I could be in risk of losing my job, and I perfectly understand that. I’m just here to advise Goy and make sure his lay-back job doesn’t become a mess like my career in NS has.
As for my other jobs like Gameside Advocate, I will stay apart of the team unless the Delegate no longer seems that I am fit for the job (which again is perfectly fine and I can understand why.) Its a job I can do at ease even when I can’t dedicate as much time anymore.
Will I ever return? Perhaps. But don’t bet on me becoming very active in January. For now, I’ll appear maybe twice a week (and maybe more if I can) but I don’t plan on spending tons of hours on something I lost my interest in. That also means I won’t be running in any upcoming elections anytime soon. I’m just beating myself up then and actually avoiding opportunities outside of NS for me.
So that’s pretty much it. I just thought I clear some things up. If you wish to voice dissent in this thread, I’m fine with it. But don’t expect me to respond to it. I’m almost always available on Discord so if you want to chat with me or poke me about something, they’re open.
