This forum served a purpose for me. In fact it affected a very great part of my life, amongst them the skills I have learned and, decided to pursue. I wouldn't be the same person without it, for the better and for the worse. Whatever the case, I'm leaving. And it is a strange thing. I thought this day would never come. But when I was 7 years old I never thought the day would come that I would go to "junior high" or "high school". But alas, I'm already in university, I own a car and go to work, I buy my own furniture and pay my bills.

Maybe it's just a coincidence I decided to say goodbye today, on the same week as I turn 20. I already decided to leave some time ago. On this evening, right now, I just felt the need to tie up some loose ends. Out with the old, in with the new. That's the feeling I have. Some things need to be appreciated for what they are and what they meant to me. But it's time to put them in the past. Being here may have been one step I needed to take but now I need to take another.

I am sorry for everything that I have left undone and unsaid. I have new responsibilities now. I need to move on with my life, and it's about time, too. Have a good one, everyone.

Hanging out with you and some of the other artist dudes was some real fun and memorable stuff, really helped me come out of my shell.
So thanks.

And good luck.

May our paths cross again on this big wide internet.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Aww.  Well, good luck out there, GD.  You gotta do what you gotta do I guess, but remember that you can still move on to the next stage in life without cutting all ties to the past.  We'll be around if you want to drop by sometime.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Bye! Have fun in...you know, whatever it is you'll be doing!

You gotta do what you gotta do I guess, but remember that you can still move on to the next stage in life without cutting all ties to the past. 

That's why I just don't understand this thread in general...why does anyone bother saying bye around here? If you don't want to visit the website any more (the proverbial you, not you specifically GD), there's no problem with that, stop coming to the site, but there's nothing stopping you from visiting every once in a while. Moving to a new home and saying bye to all the friends you won't see any more makes sense*, but I've just never seen the purpose of it in a place like this.

Farewell, and good luck.

I know we've had our differences in the past, but all the same, it just wouldn't be right of me to stand aloof at a crossroads like this. Especially since, you taught me, in your own way, a lot that I didn't know about myself. And by in your own way, I mean by not holding back when you needed to get a point across to me. You never did pull any punches.

So, in my own way, I'm guess I'm saying: thanks for everything.

Diolch yn fawr!

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Hope you have fun with whatever it is you plan to do. And be sure to come back when you grow out of the stupid phase where you think you need to leave places and cut ties. :P

I thought I was gone forever, look at me. Annoying our resident old farts by visiting  :D Always look back on the past, Great Distance.

How the heck did I miss this earlier in the week? GD I truly hope things go well for you. Don't be a stranger.
...and I do kind of echo what Pat and Ink said. You don't need to cut ties to move on with your life, and you're always welcome here.
