comment Limit point versus limit and implications for convergence
So that sequence I have constructed works as a counterexample then. Thanks @DavidMitra

Does a sequence of this form "count"?: $(a_n) = 1$ for $n = 2k, k \in \mathbb N$, $(a_n) = n$ for $n = 2k - 1, k \in \mathbb N$?

Thanks! I see the convergent series, which gives me the $N$ I need to pick.

comment Counterexample Check for Sum of Limit Points of Subsequences
Ah ok. Thank you all for your help, I am self-studying introductory real analysis and slowly getting the hang of the material.

comment Counterexample Check for Sum of Limit Points of Subsequences
@Rolando posted what looked like a proof of this conjecture, and then deleted it after you posted your answer. It looked something like this: Let $\epsilon >0$ be given. Since $a_n \to c$ and $b_n \to d$, there are $N_1, N_2$ such that for $l \ge N_1$, $k \ge N_2$ $|a_l - c| \le \epsilon/2$ and $|b_k - d| \le \epsilon/2$. Let $m = \max\{N_1, N_2\}$ and therefore we have for $n \ge m$ we have $|a_n - c + b_n - d| \le \epsilon$. Is the problem with his proof that he is not considering subsequences, and that he interpreted the limit points as limits?

Never mind, of course you are right, because the denominator $\to \infty$ so the sequence $\to 0$, sorry I lost perspective. Thanks again!

Is it fair to say that since those subsequences are the only ones I have to consider because they are the only two convergent subsequences? Other than ones like $\langle a_{4k} \rangle$ which are contained within the one considered?
