You have meant so much to me.

Ah, well, now for the announcement. I hate doing this to you all after actually writing an entry, but I've been considering it for awhile and now I've made a decision. I haven't been writing much on here anyway, and frankly, I don't have time to think about this anymore. I've decided to take a long, most likely permanent hiatus from blogging. It just isn't the same as it was when I started.

So now I say goodbye. You have all been just completely fantastic Internet buddies. Sometimes I'm amazed that I happened across people so awesome. I'll still respond to comments, so you might as well comment on the other post, which is something of a farewell gesture...after all, including the break I took in the middle of writing it to eat dinner and go to the mall, it took me about three hours :)

This is truly bittersweet. I feel like I'm leaving a part of myself behind, but also opening myself to new possibilities: namely, my deeply neglected diary, and the long-lost ability to not dwell on things of the past. I've been bogged down, and I want to give myself a new start: to do that I need to let go of the one thing that's kept me tethered to myself, my old self. I need to start new somewhere separate from a cold computer screen and a cramped, cluttered room, with only the allure of a view of the sunset and the one true constant I've had for so many years of my life: this blog. I hope you can all understand and wish me the best. I truly care about all of you, and I hope a part of you cares about me.

Goodbye :)

  1. At first I was kind of thinking this was an April Fool's Day thing, but I guess not. ): I am sad to see you go, but I definitely know where you're coming from. I've actually been thinking about stopping blogging lately myself, because it's just gotten to be more of a chore than I ever intended it to be.

    I already disabled the comments on my last post so I could get to reading them all since I'm OCD like that, but if you ever want to talk my e-mail is I really will greatly miss your presence in the blogosphere, dearest Strawberry! It's been fun. :)
