The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Hey all, it's me here again.

Just wanted to add a small update on life, online life and the hiatus. If you are an active watcher you'll notice I have been away from social media for about 2 weeks. This is because I needed to discipline myself a little, focusing more on real life and the tasks I have to do. This “addiction” to social media had gotten so bad in fact that I would check all notifications every 5 minutes or so by pure instinct.

Pretty sad, right? =P


I won't deny this break was hard for me, especially on the first few days. Didn't get to wish everyone a merry Christmas either, or give out as much gifts as I wanted.

But, some good did come off of it (sorta). I managed to organize a strict schedule thanks to an extension I added. From here on it lets me go on social media 3 hours per day, then blocks all the sites I lurk the most on.


Yes, this does mean I won't be as active as I used to be. But I'm not completely gone. However, say we're chatting on Discord and I leave mid-conversation, that's probably the reason why.


All in all, I'm back. I missed you, my frens.  

Now I gotta leave, I don't wanna use up all my time limit ovo

I think this is a healthy thing you’re doing. You have my support too. Definitely practice moderation and ensure all aspects of your life are in balance. :)

It is good to have you back though. And merry Christmas and wishing you a happy new year.

As sad as I was to see you go, your reasons are understandable.. And I admire what you're doing, to control yourself and break out of such a habit must have been a struggle.. But you did it.

I'll miss not having you around as,much. But I encourage you to follow your dreams and spend your time in better ways. I love you and I want whats best for you.
