I've had this account since before I started college. Now I graduated. Now I've moved on. It makes me upset really. I loved this website like no other website. Now...it's just...meh. Not as interesting any more. I've seen it grow, change, and get more user friendly. I've seen the good, the bad, the ugly, and everything in between here. I don't regret the time I've spent on deviantART. I just regret that I will never get that experience back. As much as I've tried, I've never cemented my place here and have ultimately just floated here. I'm nobody, but I'm also most people here.
I know that no one will really read this. Sometimes I feel like I'm speaking to myself on here. It's okay. I log on here, what, like once every two months. I don't get to take a look at everything I should. And, I'll be honest; I usually don't crank out an interesting journal entry. Prior to reading the works of Samuel Pepys, I would not think journaling as any form of art. Lousy love-laced literature scrawled in a composition book by some hormone-ridden teenage girl. That is what seems to define the collective understanding of journaling. A facebook post. That's how I treated my journals. However, there may be some hidden potential tucked away in deviant green.
I'm still writing. At least I still try. I hate much of what I've posted here. As I've grown as an artist, I look at my earlier work in shame and in a few years may look at my newer work the same way. It's sad, really. You work hard on something, only to hate it and throw it out later. I may post sporadically. I may not. I wanted to get rid of this account for a long time. However, being one of my first accounts on the internet makes it rather special to me. It's hard to let go of something so laden with precious memories. I just didn't have the heart to do it. And I probably never will.
