Hey there, everyone! Long time no see.
I have a sad but important announcement to make--I am permanently leaving dA. I love all the friends I've made here and I'm going to miss them very much, but my time here is over. I may start over fresh someday on a new account, but I definitely won't be returning to this one unless it's to save the art I put in storage and such. You all have been here to love and support me through so much, and I can't thank you enough for all that you've done for me.
For those that would wish to remain in contact, send me in a note and I'll see what I can do.
I'd love to stay in contact with some of my close friends, so I'll check up on here periodically to make sure I see who wants to stay in contact.
I hope you can understand this a very personal decision based on my educational and career related life. I will probably be contacting those who have made art for me inquiring for them to remove the pieces soon--in fact Jazz will be helping me save everything in bulk and send messages out to everyone tonight and tomorrow so I can deactivate soon. I hope everyone can understand.
I love you all so very much--I'm astounded by the wonderful journey I've had here on dA and all the things we've been through together. Much love to you all, and I promise to never forget you.
Stay strong, my friends!
Edit: As I'm going through saving all my old things and old favorites I'm finding this so emotionally difficult. Though not doing this would be far more emotionally damaging with my anxiety and possibly have ill effects on my future, I feel so much guilt. Soon I'll be deactivating this account, but I'll have all the old art and memories with me forever. I really do love you guys, but I'm doing what I feel is neccessary for my mental health and future. I'm hoping to create a new account in the future, maybe...so maybe we'll all meet again.
