Mickdude2 intro

Post by mickdude2 on 2/24/2012, 11:14 pm

Feb. 2012:

Well since everyone is making(and remaking, Wes) their intros, i decided to formally introduce myself.

I live outside of Philadelphia in a small town. Nice, but small. I am 15 and in my 9th grade freshmen year at a Catholic school. Outside of school I really dont do much, but love to lay aroound and be lazy. In school, I take all honors including Chemistry, Latin, but am in 2nd track math. I hate that. I hate math, but also the fact that I'm in 2nd track. I also do a couple school related sports like track and crosscountry, and am looking into rugby(not exactly real rugby, we dont do actual positions or anything). I am a real runner and love the 6-mile runs.

Musically I cannot hold a beat, distinguish tunes, and I sing like a dieing cat, but i still like music. Young the Giant, Green Day, and Fun are some of my faves. Other than MC I also play Rome:Total War and Civ III. I am a huge History buff and will go for all things like that. Especially Roman Empire. Romans are my favorite historical culture, and are part of the reason I took latin.

If you ask anyone who's been on oasis for more than a month they will tell you I'm annoying. Maybe I am. I can certainly hold an opinion and am not shy expressing it. Which is wierd, because in real life I usually am shy. But one thing that annoys me more than anything is stupidity. Not just stupid people, but stupid ignorant people. Like I hate it when someone says "Gee, the guy who killed hitler must have been amazing! Why dont we have a day honoring him?"  Thats what annoys me(true story, someone asked me about that. But he may or may not have been high, so...)

Well Thats kinda me. But I surpass all mortal understanding, so thats just a sliver of my true self.

Dec. 2012:


Dayum son how long ago was this? Last February? Man, I'm old. Might as well update this, seeing as though I feel I've hit a turning point in my oasis career.

Real Life (yes, I have one)
One year after my original post, I still go to that Catholic high school, where they strip me of all constitutional rights. One time, the Vice Principal locked the boys bathroom cause some douchebag took a shit on the floor. True story. Anyway, I'm still taking latin (passive voice=scary thing *shudder*) and moved on to Biology for Science. I tend to have a low outlook on the kids in my classes, mainly because some (not all) are absolute idiots. And druggies. And budding Alcoholics. Oh, the joys of America's youth . Still doin' cross and track, and, as my coach put it, still 'flogging my body for no apparent reason'. Other than that, my life is pretty boring.

Other Minecraft Experiences
Oasis isn't my only minecraft server. Sad, but true. I play on other creative servers and some that friends are trying to set up. On all of these, I draw from each unique server and try to bring a little onto oasis. That Five-word game? Found it on another server. It was a bigger hit there, however. I also continuously update my 99 minecraft days with all these great ideas from other servers. I should update that more often...

Oasis
The server nearest and dearest to my heart. Great people, great staff, great times. All right here on Oasis. Since my last intro, I've been promoted, demoted (We're not getting into that. Let's just say shit happens) and promoted again. And now I'm up for Vet candidate, a minecraft goal for about six months. Should be fun. I've been on here for one long year. Best year of my life. I've gone through ups and downs and come out on top. And since I'm ready for it, I know I have a decent shot at vet. I wouldn't rather run against anyone other than osga. He's been a great friend to me throughout the entire Pumpkin-Melon War and beyond. And so have all of you.


May 2014:

May 2014

Hello all. I'm re-introducing myself here, partly because this is really outdated, partly because I'm just getting back into minecraft, and in part because I am just realizing how fricken old I am on this server. 

I joined Oasis two years ago, at the urging of Zwall99, Fuzzyplats, and JAMESTHEJRAGON.
Since then, only Zwall and I are semi active now, but Zack's grown up and left me for Pixelmon, so here I am. Although they were my first friends on oasis, I quickly made new ones. Most of which are no longer here either... But one thing I find about oasis is that there is a constant stream of new people, and I'm just lucky to have been swimming for so long. 

To avoid this turning into a massive mess, I'm going to attempt some 'organization'.

Real Life (Yes, I still have one)
17 year old me is even busier than 15 year old me (not much more mature, but at least I'm busier). I'm still doing that cross country thing, except now I've gotten good. I went to PA states this year for a 5k, at a time of 18:45. I've yet to break five minutes for the mile though, which was my goal at the start of the year.

In other news, I'm a junior in high school now, which means college searching and prom and SATs and all those other nice things that come with pre-college. I'm looking into a Law/PoliSci major, at a state school (because its less expensive). I haven't taken the SATs yet, but I'm expecting a good strong 1800, which is neither exceptionally brilliant nor exceptionally dull. I went to Junior Prom with my girlfriend of six months, and had a blast. Junior year has been pretty good to me. I'm done with Latin, and I'm taking AP Physics next year, which I'm super stoked about. 

Oasis
Like I said earlier, I joined two years ago and have seen friends come and go. I've also been around the blocks server wise, and I can honestly say that Oasis is a unique place and no other server can match up. I've seen so many people grow up on this server (myself included), it's more like an actual family than a minecraft server. It's been great seeing kids like Apple or 4emer rise from guest to staff. 

My favorite thing about Oasis, though, and the thing I missed most in my AFK-ness, was the constant swirl of it. I love seeing people grow up in the community, but I also love seeing people grow out of the community, because it's almost like a graduation. And to replace them are legions of new players, all of whom have potential to be the next veteran (Or owner- Pax!). 

Around the community, I'm known as Mick a.k.a Legolas a.k.a the top ninth poster on the forum (and second non-staff). 

Other Adventures
Outside of minecraft, but not quite in the realms of 'Real Life', lie several games and hobbies of mine. I've recently become obsessed with Kerbal Space Program, but I've also been known to enjoy a bout on Civ V. My steam name is mgads1, if anyone cares to friend me. I'm also very interested in debate/philosophy, so add me on skype if you care to discuss that with me (mick_gadaleta).

And that is Mick Gadaleta as of May 1st 2014.

June 2015:

I feel almost as if I need to re-re-reintroduce myself here, given my long absence. Let me start off by saying: Graduation f*cking rocks. Like, seriously. June 2nd I graduated from my highschool and left Zwall behind forever (unfortunately, I can't actually leave him forever...). I'm going to Widener University for PoliSci/Pre-Law. It's right outside of Philly in the Chester area, if anyone wants to meet up for a lunch date or something! 

Being 18 has brought a lot of challenges, like the whole college thing, but more than that, I decided to finish out my Senior year strong socially as well. I decided I wanted to take a bunch of my crosscountry friends to states, so I made them all train hard. I ended up being team captain of the largest boys team to go to states in six years. I went to Junior Prom with my beautiful girlfriend of a year and a half, I went to Senior Prom with that same girl, and thanks to the nagging of that girl, I did the spring musical- Footloose! Remember, way back when in my original introduction, when I said I couldn't sing and was functionally tone-deaf? The same still applies, which made the musical even more challenging, but at the same time, made it even sweeter. I made so many friends there. It was one of the greatest experiences of my high school career. 

I also told you guys last year that I was taking AP Physics. Well, I took it. Nearly failed. Got a 20/100 on one test. But I pulled through, and took the AP test last month (On one question, the teacher never taught rotational inertia, so I ended up writing the first chapter of the Hobbit :D). For my SAT, I got that 1800 that I wanted, with a little spare change. I was extremely proud of that (even as my friend pulled out her 2390). 

This is really full circle for me. I joined Oasis my freshman year, and here I am, a little over three and a half years later, in the graduating class of 2015. It's pretty awesome. I've seen a constant flow of people, I've seen rules changed and new rules added, I've seen people retire from staff and new staff rise up to take their place. I want to thank all of you for having a hand in my journey here- from Micktropolis to the Great Pumpkin-Melon Wars to my promotions to your promotions and every bit in between. I feel like I finally am a 'Veteran' of this server.

Dec 10th, 2015:

All my friends are pretty much banned or gone. Happy four fucking years to me.

No pics of me yet. Besides, if any images of me were leaked to the internet the internet would probably break.
