I guess it's not really a farewell seeing as I'll still be on tumblr/instagram/twitter and such, but I feel it's important that I give a proper goodbye to everybody on this website who has supported me rather than just disappearing.
Six years. That's how long I've been here, yeah, you deserve a proper goodbye.
I've been planning this for months now, I wanted to set time aside so I could build up the feelings towards this journal. Thinking back I've met a lot of awesome people and I sincerely hope you consider keeping in touch with me because I will miss a lot of you guys. When I first made my account, I fully engulfed myself in something to fill the void of another thing that I really loved. I was never taught how to draw, or pushed into it as a serious thing. Though I did try and convince myself that it's what I was mean't to do, granted these past few months have really opened my eyes and that void is completely gone so I feel no need to continue on lying to myself about it. Drawing is only a hobby to me, and that's all it will ever be, I don't want to create a career out of it because I simply don't enjoy it that much to do so. I've learned so much from you guys and I'll be sure to pass on good words for you. I don't want to point out specific people because I don't want to offend anybody if I don't personally mention them. So this is just a general thank-you to all of you. Thanks for sticking with me when I had those ridiculous posts, the long journal quizzes and just supporting me in general. Over these six years I've learned a lot about myself and the person I'm striving to become, and I won't forget any of you and the support you gave me.
When I first started out here, I was struggling with making friends in school so when I met my first dA friends, and you guys know exactly who you are, it really helped recover my self-esteem. I actually treasure you guys more than you'd ever know. It's a shame we kind of drifted apart but it's not like we ended on bad terms so I mean the opportunity to reunite is still there. Granted it wouldn't be here.. Oops. Anyways, we had good times, and some strange times but I hope you all get everything you ever want because you're some of the greatest people I had the chance of meeting.
Along with this account, =audaciousQ
will be leaving as well. I haven't really updated there in awhile anyway but I just thought I'd give a heads up.
This summer and on has to have been the best time I've had here. Why? Because I've met so many great people, such as two of my best friends. Let's call them Petey and Jimmy. They mean the world to me and I'm glad we met because I would have still been in that shell of mine and probably not leaving here today. Both of them have helped me out of that depressing, miserable state of mine. They make me want to reach for the stars, and to go out and live my life. To celebrate and enjoy every ounce of it. I've had this new light in my life and I can honestly say it's because of them. I have purpose again and it feels amazing. I feel like I can do anything and the confidence is not going away anytime soon. So thank-you, for everything.
I really wanted this journal to be a bit longer, but I suppose less is more. It's more of a see you later thing anyway, I hope to see you guys over at the other sites, I'm lewisrockets on tumblr/twitter/instagram/skype and all of that if you'd like to keep in touch.
Goodbye, deviantART, it's been swell.
