I guess this is it.

Well, okay. Not quite the ending I had envisioned, but what can you do?

I’m a little disappointed that not many people seemed to care I’m leaving. I guess I just thought we were an idealistic, huge group of great friends who shared much more than a common blogging system.

So… I guess I’m just leaving like that. I don’t think there’s much I’m willing to put into social media platforms right now. In a while, I might find a new way to share that doesn’t take too much commitment.

I don’t want to be bound to something, like I have to post or be active to be remembered by friends/to be able to share and communicate with other people.

I don’t think I’m making much sense right now, but I’m rushing because I should have finished this draft a long time ago.

Sorry for my lack of commitment recently.

 

I’m not trying to start anything- I’m really not. I’m just wondering whether anyone else will actually care that I’m leaving. When people quit in this community, I feel like a whole bunch of people jump in to say how much they’re going to miss whoever it is. When people reach a certain amount of followers, they write a hyper, excited post with many thanks and “I love you”s. When there’s a raffle, people jump reblog, like, comment.

I don’t even know anymore, though. I thought we were more of a community. But I suppose it’s harder online than in real life. We’ve been through a lot, though- there’s no denying that. “Drama,” support, and so much more. We were quick to make moves- whether it be liking or accusing. But in the end…. I felt like we were all happy to call each other friends. More than happy- proud. WordPress was pretty huge for me a year ago. I told my friends about it, I laughed at your posts, and I spent a lot of time reading.

I won’t deny that any of this happened. But maybe it’s time to remember and move on. I do wish more of my friends here could have reached out to me when I was preparing to quit, but…

It’s okay though. I haven’t been going on the reader and interacting with you guys recently. I shouldn’t expect much in return just because I’m permanently leaving. I know it’s summer and I shouldn’t be so busy…

I should have posted this a long time ago, but I just came back from a three week camp.

Anyways, thank you so, so much to those who commented on my “Quitting?” post. Your comments were genuine and sweet, and really did help me. I appreciate it a lot. Thank you, Boltie, Anna, and Amethyst. I am so glad you commented; it made a big difference. We should definitely keep in touch.

I’m sorry, guys. I’m done with sugar-coated words, empty promises, useless posts, and hanging from a thin thread. It’s not fair to the people who actually take their own time to read what I post.

If I’m not going to post, I should really just end it and not leave people hanging. So it’s official then; it’s over.

Bye.

Raffle….?

Thinking of hosting a raffle to give away my account. Below is a video showing my two accounts. You don’t have to watch it. It’s just if you want to know what stuff I have.

Like and comment if you’re interested. I’ll do it if there are enough comments.

The Remaining OOTDs (62-65)

Well, why not? I have these pictures stored up, and never got to post them. I suppose it wouldn’t hurt.

There are other things I have in my photos that I never got to post, so I might post them later. But in the meantime, I will not be creating new content (unless it is necessary

Quitting?

Hey guys, I know this is rather abrupt, but I figured this was the best way to go about it.

You guys haven’t heard from me in a very long time. I haven’t been on the reader at all, and haven’t been posting at all on this blog.

That’s not fair to you guys. If I’m not going to be posting, I’d better make it official, right?

I don’t think anyone will miss me anyways. I haven’t been posting at all recently; what’s there to remember?

This blog is unnecessary. There are so many blogs on Fantage, and I wish I hadn’t started out blogging about it. Perhaps if I had spent my time blogging about something else, it would be different.

I don’t even know what to post anymore. Nearly everything has already been done. There aren’t many more opportunities, and I can’t give you guys old, overused content. I don’t exactly have an interest in playing on Fantage, either.

Anyways, I’m not going to make this too long, or no one will read it. But leave your thoughts in the comments, please. And really, be honest. That’s what’s going to help me to best make the decision. I just want honest feedback from the people who matter most in this– you guys, my viewers and friends.

But don’t worry, I won’t just vanish on you. When I come to my decision (which will most likely be to quit this blog) I will not hesitate to inform you.

Lost Voices: Book Review

Strong Leather Bindings

This is my review on Lost Voices by Sarah Porter.

This is a book about mermaids, so I thought it might be too childish for me to enjoy, even though it is young adult.
When I started reading, it didn’t entirely hold my attention. Luce was too unremarkable, too seemingly ordinary, and I didn’t think the story would go anywhere interesting.

But as the book progressed, I started to like it. It had started out a little slow, but soon, as the pace picked up and Luce discovered the mermaid world, I decided it was definitely… worth reading.

This isn’t the kind of book I normally read, for sure (it’s usually science-fiction, dystopian, and mystery types) but I found myself… enchanted (lol) by the way the author described how magical this felt, or how peculiar that seemed, etc.

Some of her phrases really made me think. Here are some of my favorites:
