Word up, GSA.
It’s your friendly most loveable, first ever #2TERMZ President, Tethys!
– WARNING: LONG POST AHEAD –
This post will contain the following:
- Closing/opening remarks for last/new term.
- Announcement of Vice President.
i. Fixing the Vice President rank.
- Thoughts for the Future.
1: Closing/Opening Remarks
Firstly, I almost have an apology to make. Last term, I didn’t perform as well as I could have, largely due to a few issues with my health. Fortunately, I was at least able to make time to be active, be a great friend and supported anyone I could, only getting one big project off the ground, but this time around, I’ll continue to do all that, and continue to do work on the HBFS Training Project, as well as working closely with my Vice President to bring about all sorts of positive things. I’ve got plans, and he’s got plans, and we hope you’ll enjoy all of them. Plus, seeing as the winter holidays are coming up, this is the optimal time to get what needs to be done, well done. This time off school will not be wasted.
Secondly, I’d like to take a quick moment to thank everyone who voted in the election. To all people who voted against me, I’d like to fire off a quick #haterzaremotivatorz, despite the fact I know you don’t hate me. But it’s relevant because without you guys making me worry for this election, I wouldn’tve decided to put the effort I need to into winning this and having a great second term. And my supporters. I couldn’ta done it without you lot – literally! The election was won by one mere vote! But, most of all, I need to thank my previous unsung heroes, Monkeyman and Eagle. You two helped me along throughout this whole thing and provided all the support I needed. Love you guys.
Anywho, here’s to a great term, GSA. Myself and my highly qualified VP are at your service.
1: Announcement of Vice President!
Right, I don’t suppose a drum roll would be too much to ask? Now, my president is…
None other than the illustrious,
Gigoto (The Oh-So-Gallant)
I realized during this election that there’s really no point of me and Gigoto continuing our little election vendetta. We were both a little bitter towards something, but one thing that Ghostehz said to me really influenced my decision. He mentioned how he wouldn’t vote on this election because the candidates were both very good, and he didn’t want to choose who was the better. So, instead of making people choose, why not combine the best of both of us, into the most kickass executive office ever? Simple logic. 1+1=2, and 2 is totally better than 1. [Nickman101]: But 2 means 2nd place and 1 means first place. [Jeep] Don’t ruin the moment nickeh!
i: Fixing the Vice President Rank
Now, there’s a problem, if you will, with the Vice President rank, that I’ve noticed ever since I’ve been in GSA. The Vice President sort of is… well, to say, they don’t really BE VICE PRESIDENT. The Vice President should be important as the President, and it’s important that the Vice President makes their own great contribution. There’s a saying: “Second place is just first loser.” I don’t believe in that at all. Hopefully, this term’s Vice President, with his great ideas and plans will do a fantastic job.
3: Thoughts for the Future:
Now, I was approached with, and thought of some cool new ideas over the last few days. Nothing here is set in stone, it’s just things that I’ve been thinking about.
Promotions Office(r): This would involve the possible establishment of a member(s), chosen by the President, that would work as editors for the sole purpose of making sure promotions stay organized. We keep trying to do this, but we keep failing, pretty much. Anyways, the purpose of this Office would be to have all promotions going through here, and approved, and documented, to avoid unfair promotion, etc. More detail on that later.
Star Wars Battlefront II?!: Yeah, you heard me right. A couple members asked me about an expansion into SWBFII, and to be honest, seeing as it’s part of our heritage, I would be thrilled to make this work. However, this would require lots of dedication from several of our members, especially the PTR of Colonisation and Recruitment. We’ll have to discuss this a fair bit and make some major plans and commitments to take this off the ground, but the Winter holidays are as good a time as any to start! More on this later!
Anyways, good luck to as all, lets have a great time.

[Nick]: I just made one.
