Shoutout to the Best Big Brother, Flame[1up]
« on: May 28, 2016, 01:07:27 AM »
Hey guys and gals, I haven't been on this site in a long time (had to reset my password to find my username), but I wanted to tell you guys that Flame[1up], known to me as Jake, or even Clifford if I wanna annoy him, just received his high school diploma tonight and graduated 3rd in his class!

So, in addition to him being in this clan for 6+ years, and constantly helping people and the clan here, he also puts his talents and good traits to use in everything else he does. (Even annoying me)

He competes in UIL (It's a Texas school thing) for band and academics, and for academics, placed 7th in Number Sense (Mental math competition, 10 minutes, 80 questions, no erasing, only brains) in Texas, 4th in Mathematics, and 7th in Science. We will be going to Austin to for band with State Solo and Ensemble this Sunday and Monday, and that's for only his senior year at the highest tiers!

Flame also does marching band (1st division for all years except junior, and that was 2nd division), competes in 5 UIL events, and he has gone to a State level in academics and band  for 3 years in a row, even netting 2nd once in Computer Science!

And he does all of this while constantly planning, never really angry nor happy, just always methodically planning his next step.
So please help me congratulate my brother for all the work and time he has put in for us, because I know that he would never say anything about what he does, because he is just too quiet and humble, but I know it would mean a lot to him if he also heard from you guys and gals as well, since he does care for 1up.

TL;DR- Flame is a really great brother to have, even if his singing is absolute trash.

Here two pictures of him, his results (Clifford), and one of his favorite pictures!

Yeah looking back at my profile and posts, I can definitely tell they were made when I was 11.

Seeing the 1up mushroom that I've seen flame work on in the top left corner fills me with a mixture of nostalgia and pride!

I still remember creating the mushroom template so that all can change the colors of the mushroom and text.  I am not saying I created the mushroom, only stating that I helped it grow with the fertilizer from this place.  :D

It's a magnificent specimen, to be sure. An exquisite fungus, cultivated from the very finest of bull**** money can buy.
