    People are getting older - They are growing out of old and going into new. As being in the Minecraft community I’ve seen some of my favorite youtubers, skin artists, builders, animators and friends grow out of Minecraft. It is well known as a game for kids- that can experience creativity and imagination with no limits. Test they’re skills. Builders who can create things that they could never imagine, as if starting off from making dirt houses... To making amazing landscapes and buildings. From skinners who can barely shade, but becoming well known of her/his skins. Animators starting off as a few seconds, but leads to minuets. People who made a successful server, now making a whole new game nicknamed “Minecraft 2”. In the time I was in the Minecraft area, I am gonna honestly say that it’s been amazing. No matter how old I am, I’m always gonna love this game. From the friends I’ve made to the projects I’ve created - It will always be in my heart. It’s sad to see someone you admire get uninterested in something they once used to love. But moved on to something more they’re age. As I respect and understand why people have to feel like they gotta leave. I promise you... that it will always be with them. No matter how much they move on. It will still be a part of them, you might be still well known for it, hell you might as well miss it at times. But the Minecraft Community and the people I’ve seen come and gone - They will always be remembered... and always welcomed. This is why I love Minecraft. This is why I love doing what I do. No matter the situation. It will always be a part of me, and I will never stop ♥

    Living beings are always changing. On a cellular level, our cells change to maintain themselves (autopoiesis). Our neurons organize themselves and create our thought patterns. As these patterns are created, we also have the ability to adapt and change them (neuroplasticity). We are never the same. Each experience we live changes us. Each experience we live in life comes from our senses that capture the universe. But, the universe means something because our brain interprets our senses. In other words, the way we feel changes the way we think; and the way we think changes the way we feel.

    Growing up, with everything I just mentioned, means changing the way you think and the way you feel. Which lead to seeing life and living life differently. The fact that as we live life life will changes us, makes life a condition. For example, when a caterpillar becomes a butterfly, the way it lives life changes.

    For me, the Internet changed the way I felt and thought about life. Therefore, it changed the way I lived and understood life. But, I wouldn't have changed if I hadn't joined this online game and community that is Minecraft. And it was quite drastic the way it changed me. I didn't even want to go to school anymore because my Minecraft friends and projects were more fulfilling and freeing than my real life ever was. I got a sense of responsibility and liberty that I hadn't gotten in the real world.


    six years later, I'm in University now. It was ironic since thanks to the way the Internet changed the way I thought that I never even bothered learning how to take the subway, the public bus or whatsoever knew how to traverse a city. I absolutely behaved as an introvert even though from my childhood I had developed an extroverted side, so how I felt and thought were completely different. I thought the city was so boring and nothing worth my time that I never went out. I thought the smaller things weren't worth striving for because I was so used to thinking on a larger scale with all my projects online.

    Being in University has been the second experience to change the way I feel and think besides this online community.
    I still think large, but I also think small. I had to learn how to traverse the city because University demanded it from me. And now I love going out, with my friends. But I also stay home and enjoy my online friends as much as I did. Thanks to all the skills I was able to develop doing art online and here in Planet Minecraft, I've been able to share these skills as well in real life and in anything else that life brings to me.

    I've stopped making skins for this website unless I get a commission (which surprisingly after 4 years I'm still getting commissions from people who have been a fan of mine for ages). I stopped because I felt that I wasn't going to grow more from doing them. That I wasn't going to surpass myself and live life to the fullest if I kept doing them. It wasn't challenging anymore. It wasn't inspiring anymore. And for the same reason I decided to enter University. To surpass myself. To grow. For my cells to adapt and my neurons to reorganize themselves. For my thoughts to change and my feelings too. For my life to have a bigger meaning (which I've learned in University life having a bigger meaning happens to be by living life in a different way).

    None of what I did for PMC and Minecraft is gone. For if it were gone, I wouldn't be where I am currently. Its a part of me that made me experience life a certain way. This condition made me feel and see life in a way that till this day it gives meaning to it. All the friends I've made online because of this community, or those who aren't anymore are the reason why I am how I am today. However, its not my friends alone. It's not PMC alone. It's not Minecraft alone. It's not the internet alone. it's not what life has done to me.

    It's what I've done with life.

    (sorry for being long, and maybe cringy. Thought I'd share some of the things I've learned, which all once begun in this place, in Minecraft, on the internet. Also, sorry for necroposting, I just happened to see this post while I randomly logged in and it touched something in me lul).

    So true <3 Minecraft is such a life changing game and there is so much more to it than just it being a video game.
