Journal Entry: Fri Jul 21, 2017, 9:02 PM
Dear friends and associated acts,
I must be quite honest with this journal. I know it has been quite some time since I made a post of any kind that did not involve an emoticon. So, allow me to "flip the script", so-to-speak. It seems I have become accustomed to a certain way of life on deviantART that I can only sum up as stagnant. I know I have made many friends in my time on this website, but it occurs to me, how many of them are even still aware of my existence? Who still remembers me from their experiences with me?
Many of you know I am not one for going out much, and I would be hard-pressed to pretend I would change that. It is not that I am introverted, that would hardly be said with a straight face. What it boils down to, is that I just do not have the friends in-person available and at my disposal to go out and enjoy the time with. They all have hectic lives, we all know what that is like.
I can definitely say that with all the friends I have "separated" from on this website, making new ones just does not seem all that appealing to me anymore. There is no way to ensure the time invested in that friendship would not be wasted entirely, though up until now, I did not think about that. So what changed, you might wonder?
I guess the answer to that would be the people that use the deviantART Message Network. Sure, there are quite a few gems remaining to be collected. I just did so relatively recently, as a matter of fact. A wonderful addition to my collection that numbers so few these days, comparatively speaking. So what point am I making? What I might be trying to say is, the time invested has been well worth it, even if the pool has dwindled so significantly.
The honest truth of the matter is, it cannot be anywhere near as much fun as it used to be. So I realize the drive to post anything has reduced as well, but I figured I would share my thought on the matter, just so we would all be on the same page. Even I spend much less time on here than I used to. But worry not, friends, for I do not think I will leave any time soon, I just wanted to fill the void with some words.
