Wow... it's been a long time. I kinda just fell off the face of the Earth. To put it simply, real life got more interesting.
I think I disappeared around the beginning of March, which was when things were less like they should be and more like a bad high-school television show. My group of friends was split in a few directions by the most ridiculous person ever after I started dating one of our mutual friends and his obnoxious ego couldn't take it (she'd turned him down earlier). That romance lasted about two weeks and left me with a more cynical outlook on relationships and a bit of (thankfully temporary, I'm over it now) mild misogyny. Anyway, enough about that, but it was the start of me disappearing. Then came my school's musical, which took up the rest of my free time for the next two weeks, and then came my final papers, and then graduation, and getting a job... yeah, I've been busy.
But, also, I kinda hit a dry period with writing, so I didn't have much to do on here anyway. It happens every once in a while, but it's usually for the better. My style actually evolves more when I take a break from writing than when I write constantly. I've been studying poetry a lot and kinda rethinking my methods of writing it. I've come to like some of my old poems more for it, and dislike some that I had thought were good. I've got a poem or two in the works now and I'll hopefully get those up soon.
It looks like DAWriterStrike is just about dead :/ I already apologized to the other staff members for my disappearance, but I think me sticking around would have just delayed the inevitable. It was never that organized and really didn't accomplish that much, but I think there was a pretty decent community going on there and it's a shame to see it dying out. Does anyone reading this know anything that happened while I was gone?
Anyway, I have a lot more free time now that it's summer, so here I am. It's good to be back, for anyone who cares.
P.S. What's the deal with Llama Badges?
