My Official Goodbye

Imagine that KidPub is an island. And, frankly, it's a pretty darn awesome island. All of the greatest budding writers in the world uniting on the coolest island in the world, to have fun, critique and collaborate. We started out as a close-knit family, with a bunch of inside jokes and great potential. And every two years or so, a new flock of writers, called newbies for their lack of experience, arrive. That just makes our great family bigger and better, right?
Well, right, to some extent. It does make our family bigger, and the more the merrier. But with a big family, comes family feuds. We all started arguing. That's okay, we survived. We stayed together. More and more blows hit us, some memberships expired. We lost family members. The original family dwindled down to just a few, and those that are still here have stopped posting, only going on for a few scarce minutes. The most recent posts from the original family are farewell posts.
When I first arrived on this vast island, I thought I'd be here forever. I saw my friends leave this site, and I thought, What? Why would you do that? I thought I'd stay here, be a part of the newbies' families.
But what I learned is that you can't make a new family. When your family goes...you go with them. Calla, Lauren, Redhead, they all did this months ago. It's my time to leave.
Believe me, I'm not leaving because I don't like you people. I love all of you fellow writers. You're wonderful, determined, talented, creative. You rock. It's your turn to party with your family. And it's my turn to hop onto the ferry and take off, into this vast new world that doesn't involve the internet. I'll miss you guys--a few shout-outs, special goodbyes, before I go, though:
Mackie Poo/Mac: Hello there my evil genius with manners that capitalizes her I's and has trouble distinguishing snow and mud. (See? I remembered:D) One day we'll go to Narnia on my wafflicious banana, Fred. And we'll love him until he goes all gross and moldy and then we'll split him up and eat him. But for now, I'll be off. Don't think I'm ditching you...I'm doing what my stretchy-soul tells me to. We have to keep in touch. Or else. The world will die.
Lucky: You're so nice!(: Thanks fro remembering me:D I wish I could've gotten to know you better until now. Have a great life! I hope you get published, you're such a great writer.:3
Lauren/Calla: I don't find it appropriate to have separate shout-outs for you two. I doubt if you'll ever get to read this, but just wanted to say, you inspire me. Yea, the both of you:P And you guys are insanely fun to talk to. And I don't know why I'm shouting out to you when you're friends with me on facebook, but I found it appropriate. xD
Kazel: Yea, there's a huge doubt that you'll read this. But you inspired me to get a tablet, start drawing on PhotoShop, and write fantasy. You rock. I definitely will have a stagalicious day(: You were one of my first commenters, and one of my first friends. I miss KMing with you! Our adventures were great, even though I was a crap adventurer:D
ErinMarie/Erm: Sorry I forgot you on the first time I wrote this): I'm going to miss you! I spammed with you too:D Thanks for all of the comments and the convos on the WB! I miss those already. Take care(:
There's a whole bunch of you I'd like to personally message, but I'm pressed for time and this post'll be too long. I doubt you're reading this whole thing. Anyways, I'm not gone forever, if you don't want me to be. There's email, facebook MSN, AIM, messenger, Skype (which I LOVE). We can keep in touch. If you wanna just talk and chill, send me an email on my contact form. Besides, I'll be on from time-to-time, spamming the notes page with Mackie Poo or something. But as for posting--I think this is my last post. I'll still be writing, though--I'll never stop writing. By the way, if you ever want me to critique your works, just email me. Yup(:
So I guess this is it. I'll miss you all. I'll be back...sometime...(: Don't forget me! And if you do...I'll drop by and remind you >:D
Goodbye. It's been a great two-and-a-half years.
