A Respectful Thank You
This was my home for many years. Now I don't even feel comfortable sitting in my old chair.
My reasons for leaving are my own. What once was will never be the same. If things don't work out for me, it won't be because I failed, it will be because I tried.
Trials and tribulations. Since day one when I started here, way back in September of 2016, the experience here has never been easy. I didn't leave here because the road ahead looks difficult. I'm not turning around. Simply moving forward.
The future is uncertain whichever way you go. In life, here, there — everywhere. You'll never know. Go with your gut. Sometimes it'll make you sick. Sometimes it'll make you hungry for more.
It would be nice to be able to thank everyone personally. I feel like I've met thousands of people here over the years and it might take a long time but everyone played an important role in my life here. Big or small, you did something, that meant something.
I've said thanks to everyone many times, as a group. I didn't take anything for granted. Even though I feel much of what I worked for here is now gone, I'm still grateful for the experience. Learned a lot about myself, life, other people. That is all very important.
I'm not dead. I simply moved away. If you're sticking around here, just know, my door is always open over there.
That's where I am and you're more than welcome to come visit.
I'm breaking one of my rules. I said I wouldn't come back here. This message isn't really about the platform or the politics. It's for this long list of followers who might be looking for me someday. It's for the friends I made. It's for the people who enjoyed my work. I truly enjoyed entertaining you folks for nearly four years. Thank you for the opportunity.
And thanks for everything else. It will not be forgotten.
My experience here will always mean the world to me. Leaving wasn't easy.
If you're sticking around here. Good luck to you.
