Hello. I didn't know you were so interested in me. Since you've turned up on my patch, I thought I might as well make my page look a bit nicer than it is currently, lol.

So, how are you doing? My name's CaptainChimpy if you didn't realise already; the nicknames are in the infobox to your right. I've been around the MRT since the cold December of 2014. I've only been inactive three times: April - June 2015, December - January 2016 and March 2018.

My first language is English, but I'm also doing a GCSE in French, so I can speak with the French, but it'll probably be pretty terrible. D'accord? I have aspirations to become a journalist/architect, and at the moment I'm leaning towards journalism.

At the moment, I don't have many projects on since my IRL commitments are increasing recently and therefore I'm less likely to be on.

History

I joined December 20th 2014, but really started playing on New Year's Day 2015. 2 weeks later, I applied and was accepted by Thomas on the 15th. Three days later, the town of Accerton at  C28 - EC8  Foobar. It's a thriving town. Then, on the 30th, I got promoted to Citizen by I've forgotten. On February 21, I was gifted Trustee by hntredtie. Thanks to my endorsers: RednaxAP, Benie and MonsieurKeks! Then, Councillor arrived via lalaboy. On the 25th August 2015, lalaboy and hntredtie granted me Mayor. I've spent a really long time as Mayor, lol.

Accerton

Accerton was my first city. Pronounce it Ack-er-ton, by the way. In 2015 I really had no idea how to build, how to plan properly, and how to source builders. I reached Mayor, my highest rank with this city. Looking back at Accerton, I'd say that it was a mismatch of buildings, clunkered together, like a sort of messier, more spaghetti-like urban plan. Still, good memories.

Castlecombe

My friend _Bants_ started this town in 2015. However, he didn't get far with it (and was eventually banned). I took over this project and used it to experiment with proper road-building, proper planning and a better style of building. I tried to link up the town with Accerton, however lost interest and stopped the project. When Epsilon presented itself, I decided to abandon the Accerton-Castlecombe duplex; in late 2017/early 2018 Just_robinho bought Castlecombe Evergreen (the southern district) from me to expand his city, Marblegate.

Enspington

Enspington was probably the city where I made my break. I really enjoyed building this city, using it again to experiment with more European-style buildings, a deviation from the standard convention of boring American-style roads. Basically, I used grey wool for roads. I am proud of my creation, putting a much more focused emphasis on walkability and ambience than the large-road culture of US city planning. I had ambitious plans for this city, however with the emergence of a guy called _Mossie drew my interest away from the city.

Verdantium

Ah, Verdantium. First got involved in this project in summer 2017, helping then-mayor _Mossie to rebuild the Warkworth Canal and Old Verdantium. Gradually I helped oversee the expansion to the east and ascended to the position of Deputy Mayor, developing and opening the Verdantium Sovereignty regional alliance. In March 2018, _Mossie left the server, leaving me to take over mayorship of the city.

Real-Life Me

I'm from the UK in timezone UTC (+1 during Daylight Savings). I'm [redacted] years old and currently study in an independent school in the UK. We've been called many things, but my school isn't posh compared to other schools. I don't go to Eton or Westminster, in case you thought I did. :P

I'm currently studying for A-level, a qualification taken by most 18-year-olds upon leaving school. Most universities (the next level in education) use A-levels as a basis on whether to offer students places. All courses are 2 years long. Here's the 4 (soon to be 3) A-levels I'm taking

Subject Exam Board Examination Date Remarks
English Literature OCR A-Level June 2021 Probably my favourite subject at the moment
Geography AQA A-level (Accredited Qualifications Alliance) June 2021 Yay geography
Government & Politics Edexcel A-level June 2019 -
Economics Edexcel A-level June 2021 Dropping in December 2019

At the moment, I'm interested in pursuing a career in law. This profession requires a lot of work, meaning that I will be online less as time goes on. Here's my (hopefully!) route to a job:

Academic Level Subjects University/School Grade
GCSE As indicated above [redacted] 7 9s
1 8
2 7s
A-Level English Literature, Geography, Government & Politics, Economics [redacted] AAA or higher
Undergraduate Degree (major in the US) Geography
Law
Law with Politics or similar
Cambridge
Oxford
Manchester
UCL
King's
Durham
Bristol
Bachelor of Arts (BA) (2:1 or higher)

I haven't really thought about postgraduate degrees much.

Anyway, back to what I like. My interests are in the fields of law, aviation, traffic engineering (weird, innit), politics, geography, and music, especially proper classical music.
