FOOD FOR THOUGHT
"Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it."

On September 7, 2014, I posted a journal that basically thanked every person who every favorited, commented on, or even read my fanfics. I posted a journal that thanked every one who ever decided they wanted to follow my work and see what else I could put out there. I wrote about how I was so shocked to have 100+ people enjoying what I do as simply a hobby. 100+ people who got enjoyment out of something I'm still pretty convinced I'm not very good at.
That was just the beginning. Over the course of last semester, the semester before that, and even the summer before, I hadn't really been paying too much attention to who was following me or who was favoriting what. I was just sort of logging on, deleting all my messages that weren't comments, replying to any comments I had, then going. I never would have imagined that I would get to the point that I'm at today. I recently just checked, out of curiosity and all, and you guys have nearly quadrupled the amount of people who read and enjoy my work. I'm at 300+ followers, pretty darn close to being 400+ and I have to tell you, I am honestly so shell shocked. I wish there were more that I could do to thank you all for liking my work and wanting to see more of it. I wish I could promise to update more frequently or on a set schedule. I wish I could know exactly what piece of mine was the piece that made you decide to follow me. But I know I can't. Set schedules aren't my thing when it comes to writing because if I were to do that, it'd feel less like a hobby and more like my job.
I'm not really sure how to end this journal. It's a little awkward, isn't it. I don't expect much people to read it anyway.
I really should thank each and every one of you individually, but this is the best I can do for now.
So thank you for being here. Thank you for liking what I love to do. And thank you for wanting to share more of it with me.
