 (Side note: I didn't drank any Red Bull :) )

I totally seconded Sebastian's words.

It's a shame that you didn't reached a better decision :( (at least for the
IMO your contribution will be very valuable even if you can't spend the same
amount of time that you've spent in the last months.
You want new blood in the council, but you've to agree that some 'old' blood
is also needed, in order to keep a good balance and help in the adaptation
of the new members.
No offense for the other former and actual members of the council, everyone
has his personal lives, but there's three individuals that stayed with us
all the time, they were in almost all decisions that our community have done
so far. I strongly believe that these individuals will be a big advantage in
future councils, so if you want the best for our community, please
re-reconsider your decision ;) (same for Tim and Ryan).

I would have accepted the nomination right away if you had accepted yours
;), I'm in the fence right now, but since this community gave me so much and
I really enjoy to be part of it, I'll think a bit about the pros and cons,
and will have a decision in the next hours.

Best regards,
