The title of this journal is a metaphor, it's my attempt to symbolize stars out in the universe fading into nothingness billions of years from now. But you and I both know that everything I just said is kind of BS. What this journal's REALLY about is confirmation of what everyone already knows.
I'm finally leaving DA.
It's kind of been coming for a while now, and I had a good run, but it's time to stop fooling myself and officially call it. Now don't get upset, I've been thinking about this for a good while now, so this isn't a spur of the moment thing, I HAVE put thought into this. But when I think back to the glory days, when I was a terrible writer with a drive to put out as much literature as humanly possible, well it was a good time, but I haven't been that way since Gender Swapped. And, well...I've changed over time I guess.
In truth I guess I left DeviantART in November 2011, since then I've just sort of been lurking, posting the odd lit piece here or there, but not really contributing that much past the odd comment or two. Maybe I'd favourite something here, and write a journal there. But I'm done.
...No, that's a bit of a lie, I'll still check up on things, answer a question if anybody thinks to ask one. And I'll post anything I write in the future. But I won't really contribute to the community at large anymore, I won't comment on art I like, and I won't really instigate anything anymore. And this will be my very last journal entry.
-I'll be moving the comic check thing I do every year to deviation format instead of journals, that way it'll be easier to keep track of.
Well this is it I guess, I never thought I'd join the ranks of people that've moved on from here. But life is as life does, DeviantART simply doesn't offer me the same fulfillment I once got out of it.
If you'd like to still keep track of me while I adapt to different websites, I'm currently very active on Youtube, www.youtube.com/user/Dominodud…
and Tumblr, activeobserver.tumblr.com/
My final words of wisdom? "If life isn't working out for you, well, then hope to god that you have a backup plan of some kind. Your destiny ain't growing on the tree out back, you know."
