When I was 9 years old, there was a school assignment to memorize a poem.
I chose Jabberwocky.
What a weird little kid.
It was a challenge with all its nonsense words and phrases, but there was still meaning to it.
Sort of like this blog…
I’ve gone back & forth between poignant and silly, heartbreak and humor, but I think I’ve let you all see me as a person, in good times & bad. I’ve been on OS for about 15 months, I made a lot of friends, wrote some really good stuff (I think), and got to witness some of the most epic dust-ups! Now I feel myself going in another direction. I have started to feel like my topics are the same old thing, and have become complacent with this “identity.”
Of course there are many OSers to thank—for the support, encouragement, friendship and virtual hugs. I don’t want to leave anyone out, so I’ll not name names, but many of you have given me SO much that I have carried through into my “real life” and I’ll never forget that. Being a part of OS has changed my life.
I have backed up my blog to a flash-drive, but am leaving my favorite posts here. I’ll not delete my account (as all my comments throughout OS will also disappear and I know how much that sucks). I do not plan on logging into this account again, but I’ll be around, perhaps with a new endeavor. ;-)
