Well, here I am. Writing a goodbye blog, I never really imagined what it'd be like.
I'll just start off with why I'm leaving paint since that's probably what most people who are barely hearing about this are wondering. The main reason I'm stepping away is for my own personal health. I've wanted to do this for quite a while now actually. Paint for me just has not been enjoyable at all, but yet I developed the tendency to keep checking in over and over, that may not sound like much but it definitely is when I'm with friends, in class, and so on. Yeah I could take a break but then I don't think things would change for me, and that's been one thing eating at me. I kept asking myself, "why do I keep coming back if I don't enjoy it here anymore?" Anyways, I'm just trying to better my life is all and I strongly believe this is a good step for me. I'm not trying to sever bonds or abandon the people I met, I have most added, I'll even drop some contact info now for anyone else who wishes to reach me.
And if this blog seems unorganized, whoops. I'm not gonna submit it anyways, I was never really one to chase attention.
So, about 9 years ago I moved to another school in the same town but my friends didn't so I was quite lonely in the last years of elementary school, then somewhere in that year of 2011 I was on flipnote hatena and I saw a flipnote that had websites compatible with the dsi's browser, there was dsicade, dsipad, dsipaint along with others. I never really stuck around the others but it was obviously a different story for here. My first account here had the same name as my club penguin account, "cokkie555" (yes that is indeed a typo of cookie) and man those were great times. Account got hacked, in some whole situation but I got it back, deleted it and came back on another account.
Ya that's pretty much my beginnings here.
Now I sit here, honestly just a bit happy, like a weight is off my chest after going through with this. So I hope you guys feel glad I'm doing good. It's been a journey, I've had a ton of people I've met here come and go, which is another reason I'm going. I don't like seeing people go, yes it is a part of life but it'll do me good if I'm in a position for it to happen less.
Mm well I do have a holiday I created here don't I? That was fun, seeing all the nice things everyone had to say about each other. It could go a couple ways, you guys as a community can decide to continue it with the traditional messages to each other blog, chat events, even add new stuff to it if you want. If not, go ahead and reitre it that's fine too.
Hm it would've been pretty cool to write messages here to people but nah, I'll still be talking with people outside of here so it's not a complete goodbye.
But nonetheless, I have went over most of what I wanted to say. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I can't say that enough for everything I got out of here, being accepted as a friend by people here, got to help out by being on the admin team, always was a childhood goal of mine. Even doing some basic work with hull was great.
I'll make my final log off sometime in the near future, you'll be able to tell when my profile is a bit different.
Keep respecting others here, is the only thing I'm asking from people.
