A look back through 11 years

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 12, 2014, 2:01 PM

I just looked at my ten-year birthday journal and realized that was well over a year ago.  I wonder if anybody still follows me!  I'm really sorry I haven't been active in a few years.  It's hard to believe, really, I went from community volunteer to idle account in a manner of months - but that's just how life goes.

I have had 3 separate jobs in the last two years.  I worked at my alma mater from 2007-2012, and had a 10-month stint at an internet security company - and now I work for a company that runs a search engine and an ad platform.

In that time I was also part of a professional choir, though I had to leave it also due to life.  I moved many miles away from where I used to life in order to take my new job, and couldn't handle the driving for choir rehearsals and performances.  It was a similar story with why I dropped off of DeviantART - I tried lurking, but what I really enjoyed about this site was being balls deep in the community, and I just don't have the resources to dedicate to it any longer.

I miss you all greatly, and I miss the old days of living on the chat network and the forums.  I miss my time being harranged by fourteenthstar (though I guess that hasn't really stopped, has it? ;) ) and serving with the Community Volunteer team.  Thems was good days, they was.  But as life moves on, so too priorities.  I have left organizations on unhappy terms (my alma mater, for one), but I did not part from this deviant community with anything but love in my heart.

This journal may be up for a long time - or I may end up finding the resources to reintegrate into the community.  It's far different now than it was when I took my leave, but at its core it's still a community dedicated to the appreciation and sanctity of art in all its forms.  I congratulate those who have striven to make this place what it is, damn near a household name, with millions of users and millions of pieces of great art (and a few not so great pieces - not everyone is a professional, that's what makes this place so awesome!) .

Keep up the good work.  Peace out.

(And hey, that Facebook link does work last I checked - feel free to keep up with me there.  Just send me a message first so I know who you are!)
