I am moving to Florida. Don't ask why, there are a million reasons of various types- emotional, mental, educational, physical, financial, vocational - and maybe a touch of simple nomadic wanderlust. But I will explain a few things.
It is the end of the month. We are closing the deal on the house. This means it will be officially sold. Someone else will own it. We will hurry up, pack our stuff, buy potloads of necessities (and stuff we don't need, too) including an RV and a moving van. We may sell our SUV, as we only have two drivers.
Then I will be gone a long, long time.
We are taking a north-curving route - all map sites say this is the quickest - and on the way we are stopping in Tennessee to visit my relative Annette, and Illinois to visit my boyfriend, Austin, neither of whom I've met.
We are planning to deviate through New England as well, meaning straying far from our course to sweep through New York and then down through the other 12. We may stop in some of these places, including other states such as Pennsylvania, and we may also backtrack to some states.
Then we will reach Florida. This does not necessarily mean an immediate return to the internet on my part.
We must buy a house. Or rent. We do not want to be permanently rooted to our RV. Then we must...well, move in. Unpack. Hook up the pc. Get jobs, clubs, schooling (well, not until NEXT semester, actually)...
In other words, I have no idea when the heck I will actually be returning. It may be a month - or more. I'm not the exact date we're leaving, either, but for when we do, goodbye to everyone.
To my watchers, viewers, friends, thank you. I have earned a level of respect and small fame I never thought I would be able to achieve, especially with my meagre art. Thanks to everyone else for teaching me new art techniques; for being at or above my level to make me want to try as hard as I can to beat you; for buying me art supplies; for just saying "pretty" for my pictures. You make art seem worth it.
To my rivals, enemies, and general people-not-liking-me, I apologize: I know I am often a little Hermione and can be very, very uppity, haughty, and sometimes just a plain know-it-all arrogant jerk. I know I often pick fights and let myself get purposely provoked. I know sometimes I just can't help picking at every little thing and being over-literal, over-sensitive, and over-perfectional. Sorry about that.
To everyone else: Just thanks for existing. Through the butterfly effect I'm sure every entity has somehow affected my life in minor or major ways, and though some might seem bad at the time, there is always some positive aspect to balance it (even when I don't notice at first). Though I'm pretty sure every entity is not reading this, as humans so far are the only entities able to read (and not even all of them, either). But, for everyone who IS reading this, just...thanks. For changing things, even when you don't try...
Okay, enough with the subtheistic speeches and sappy babble.
So long, sayonara, au revoir, adios, aloha, αντίο, auf wiedersehen, vaarwel, namaarie, sahha, ach chwi eirweith!
