So I had this idea to write a story about my CCG life, and I thought hey better do this before other people do. And so this is the story of my CCG life. I started off like most people did and found minecraft through YouTube. I believe it was IBallisticSquid that got me interested in this game of blocks. So the 11 year old me ran up to me mom and asked if I could get minecraft for an early birthday present, since i could not wait til the end of September (hint, hint). So we went to GameStop and got minecraft. We went home and I started to play it in single player. I got used to the controls and decided hey this is extremely boring, let's find some servers to play on. So I did what everyone did and went and looked up minecraft servers on google. I started looking through the descriptions and wondered what in the heck is a 'Skyblock'. So I read through and thought dang this looks cool, so i clicked the server with about 700 people on it and it brought me to CCG. I first was really confused on why the heck I had a compass in my hand, then I realized hey I can click this. And so i clicked on the grass block and was teleported to the Skyblock lobby. Now this was when the skyblock lobby was about a 7x7 quartz box. I slowly progressed joining random islands and making my own. And that was when i set my goal. I was always interested in the two people that seemed to have the best island around @TheCircleOfFire and @eshuren1 . I started building islands as big as I could so that way I could be noticed as someone who knew what they were doing. The first time I really ever talked to them was when Circle was asking around for wood and lots of it. I looked through my chests and found about 15 stacks. So I yelled in chat for Circle to go to trade I had wood for him. So Circle saw me as a supplier, and I thought if I keep giving him wood for his island maybe I can be friends with him. So I did this for about a month, and then more people started to come on Skyblock. I started meeting new friends and we made a bunch of islands together. The main island that we were on was @agentlauren 's island and we started making it the best that we could. Once I had joined my new friend @xXvalkoor joined and started making a few YouTube videos on the island. Then a guy named @ma_man321 joined and helped build up the island. We got to the point where we didn't know what to do. So I did what everyone does when they are bored and made a floating pirate ship out of diamond blocks. By the time I was finished building it the island level went up about 300 levels. And I was still bored so I made an airplane in the sky out of iron blocks. The island level didn't go up that much. At this time I kind of started to get bored with minecraft since I didn't really know what to do. That's when I decided to get Skype. The first person I ever talked to was Valkoor. We started playing Skywars a lot and, through him I met some new people (reason is classified). So I met @JirdTheNird and we started playing some other games on CCG and then I met more people, here comes the list: @Malll @Soph @Mattttttttttt @Younisco @Breezeblocks @WingedBogan and lots of others. Around now was when Soph kept making me build statues of her skin and she would get mad when I wouldn't but she wouldn't stand still so I couldn't build it.Anyway the age of island hopping began, everyone would make islands, tear them down, join others, build up that island, tear it down, and repeat. Right around here is the time I started 8th grade, and with 8th grade I had started caring a little more about school and was taking time out of my minecraft gaming sessions of 15 hours a day. Every time I would take time off to go work on school stuff I would always come back to a new set of drama between my friends and others. It got to a point that I had no idea who was actually my friend and who wasn't. If I wanted to I could probably say exactly what every fight was about but yeah who wants to hear that. Well after school let out I was able to start playing more. (just a side note I think I'm putting more effort into this than a few essays I wrote for school anyway back to the story) Around this time was when everyone was wanting a Skyblock reset. And so like the few things that everyone requests that gets granted we got Skyblock 2.0. I set this time for me to make my island the best I could. And so I started building it out and that's when my old friend ma_man321 asked if he could join my island so we started building it more and we made a fricken huge tree farm and started just making as huge as we could. We got really excited when we were able to make @SGTkuzey like our mob spawner which is 12 mobs spawners in one. And so it comes to now where we are still trying to make our island the best that we can. We are currently island level 1187.44 and Rank 9. And yeah that's my story. I'm gonna add a list of all ma friends that I missed, but meanwhile I'm gonna make myself some lunch. Thanks for listening to my random story that I was the first to ever do.
