I don't even know where to start. Never would I find myself writing this Twitlonger to you guys. It still doesn't feel real that Dare is gone. I couldn't imagine Dare being without both LaKsoh or Tanzer. Unfortunately, LaKsoh had already made plans before announcing that he was leaving in which Tanzer, Tyla, Cortez, and I planned to keep Dare moving without him. We had a gameplan. All of this could have been prevented or handled differently. In the end, I had no control over the situation. Regardless, after everything that happened, I never thought I would have been given a second chance to be back with Dare, despite everything, I will always love this family.
To the Dare members first off, I am sorry about how things were handled. You guys didn't deserve to see Dare end like this nor left in the dark. I believe every one of you can make some incredible things happen, although Dare may have ended the memories and bonds that we've created will always exist. Whatever happens next for each and every one of you, I'll always have your back. To the Dare Stream Team, it's been one heck of a ride. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with you, your commitment to streaming and Dare as a whole is truly unmatched. I couldn't ask for a better group of streamers to manage. To the Apex Legends Team, I wish we would've had a chance to see the first teamtage up on Dare, regardless I'm glad in the end Misuto and Deathbox finally got to join along with my boy Moose. To our designers, editors, and photographers, thank you guys for all that you've done for Dare. You're all incredibly talented and gifted individuals. Our branding, the videos, the photos wouldn't have possible without each and every one of you.
To the five #DareToStream challenge winners, Synahtra, Brock, RespectableAdult, Jaaybear, and KarizMa, first, congratulations on winning. You guys deserve better than this, the competition was supposed to end yesterday with KarizMa joining and this happens. It's not fair. However, I can say through all of this and even with the other Top 9 #DareToStream challenge entrants, MacEz, Wolfshire, Illusion, and MrSteez, you all have so much in store for you, it was an honor getting to know every one of you and seeing you progress both as an individual, but streamer through these past five weeks.
To the grinders, thank you all for embodying what it means to #DareToAchieve, for believing and sticking with Dare. The support and commitment you've shown for this family is something I will never forget. I wish I would've gotten to see many of you join. I know some of you may feel (like me) that there may not be something out there like Dare. There's someplace out there for you trust me on that, even if you have to create somewhere you belong. Most importantly, grind for you. Don't let a team or organization be the reason you want to improve or grow, keep yourself in mind and your wellbeing.
To Tyla, although you told me nearly three years ago that I needed Jesus (LOL) I am glad that through it all I had the chance to team with you again. There's no one else I would've wanted to run a Stream Team with other than you. We've had an incredible run. Regardless of what others may say, you deserve every ounce of success and opportunity that TikTok has and will give you. You have become one of my best friends and I will always love you.
To Chris (LaKsoh), look kid. Thank you for taking a chance on me and giving me an opportunity to be back working with you and Dare again. I will be forever grateful. Although I hate how blunt you can be (LOL) you've always kept it real and called me out when I needed to be. I'm glad we got to celebrate New Years together and you can bet I'll be back to Vegas before you head back home.
To Matt (Tanzer), as much I want to hate you, I think at some point this was going to happen. You took a chance on me despite everything and for that, thank you. I wish we could've ridden things out longer, but all good things must come to an end at some point I guess. Although it may take a long time for this wound to heal, you'll always be my brother and that'll never change.
To Cortez (Bailey), what can I say BC, we had a rocky relationship, after all, that happened, however, I am glad we were able to move past that. This was both our second time with Dare, and through it all, we accomplished quite a bit but became even closer. You'll forever be my best friend and someone that will always be a part of my life.
Well guys if you made it this far to the Twitlonger, thank you. It definitely hurts to see things end this way, not just for me, but for the members especially. Dare was supposed to be the endgame for me when I rejoined. Now that it's gone I'm not sure what is next for me. I will continue to stream and make content as planned, however, I think I need to take some time to process everything. I will be transferring from community college here this upcoming fall to a university to pursue my Bachelor's degree in Communication. With that being said, I am still open to any opportunities. Thank you guys for supporting me through my journey with Dare, although I am not sure where I may end up next I am incredibly grateful and happy I accomplished what I set out to do in the end.
