Hey, guys.

So, some people may have noted that I haven't been on much in the last, oh say, six months or so. it's been coming on for a while (as I'm sure is evidenced by my long absenteeism) but I think I really need to take some time off from DA for a while.

I'm writing this journal to make it sort of official, and to let you guys know that I haven't been hit by a truck or anything. You guys have been really amazing and supportive ever since I started posting on this website.

The thing is, DeviantART is supposed to be fun. And it is fun, it's just that for a while now maintaining my gallery's seemed like a chore.I started feeling guilty about not keeping up with it all. It shouldn't be like that. This whole thing, this whole beautiful, amazing thing that is the Internet, and art and communities and stuff, that's what it's about.

You know what I love about this site? How I've made friends with people from all over the world. People who like to think, and who came on here looking for other people who wanted to think. And I mean, it's not like we're pretentious little twerps who sit around all day and talk about philosophy and What It's All About, because we aren't, we make fun of bishounen and role play shape-shifting morph-gun parties like the best of them. What I love is that we can do both. It's just been really... nice. I'm glad that there's a place where people can go to find that. I was in eighth grade when I started this gallery, and at the time, that was what I really needed. It's meant a lot to me, and I want to thank you all again.

I wrote that last bit because I want to show you that I'm not mad at the site, or something anyone said, or did, because it's meant a lot to me to have this. I might not even be leaving for good. Maybe I'll create a new account. you know, a fresh start. It could happen. I love what this place stands for. I love connecting with people, whether it's over their high art surrealist treatise on the nature of love, or their crack-tastic yaoi neko comic. Don't you guys just love the Internet? I love the Internet. It's all art, and it's all been fantastic. Dammit, now I'm feeling emotional.

But I just need a break for a while.

And maybe I'll be back.

So, au revoir. Hasta la pasta. Don't eat stale cookies. And don't trust dogs with orange eyebrows.

I love you guys.

... I miss you. I don't offer this often, but... If you check here again... Do you want to swap e-mail addresses or something?

I don't wanna sound creepy, but I do kinda miss having someone to just chat with. You know, someone I don't see every day.


...Aaand the creepy is there. xD
