Title: *slinks out of the shadows*
Post by: Viresse on 09 September 2003, 12:53:00
Seems like my disappearing trick wasn't so fab.
I miss my works.
I was trying to slide away quietly, but I don't know if I can.
I mean. I've been gone a few months, or a month or something. I don't remember.
And while I rested and existed as a normal human being, i still kind of missed this place. Mostly becuase I didn't want to leave things hanging. When I wrote the Viresse entry, I thought" That's it. I think I'm done."
And then I thought of all I did, and how I didn't want anyone to mess with it. And I got mad. I wanted to keep my stuff, and didn't want the stress of entries.

In all honesty, I think I got burned out on entry writing. After that one incident with that Milari, I felt like a big waste of space here, and I wonder if my posts showed it. Then I did my Entry. And I figured I was gone.

But I left things loose. Namely, my friends. and leaving you all like that is really disrespectful and I'm sorry. Arti has kept me in semi-contact, with e-mails. And the last one he sent made a lot of sense. I have a duty here and it's not a lot. I can't go scurrying off.

Sorry if I insulted anyone. I assume I'll still be around, but I don't know if I'll write much anymore. I mean- I've got a big porfolio, right? I can lay slack for a while. When I feel like writing, I will- not when I need to get stuff done.

Anyway. Hope you all still respect and like me. And I'm sorry for being an ass. Hopefully that won't happen again.

Hey Viresse, no, you haven't been an *beep* and I also don't know anybody you've insulted. And I also can understand people trying to slide away quietly if tensions arrise, in fact that's pretty normal.

Like many others here in Santharia you've done a tremendous job with entry making and with managing things at the RPG board (just look at your post count to see how important you have been for the Dream so far!), and getting burned out a bit is also not unusual. Nobody needs to be an entry machine - commenting a bit here and there would be nice as well - commenting on others' work is as important BTW as to write own entries.

Just take it easy, Viresse...;)  Just take this little fellow below as an example:

I think that's some of the problems a lot of Santharians are facing currently 1) burnt-out 2) boredom 3) no one cares anymore! :pet

If anyone is facing one or ALL of the above, I'd suggest a long sabbatical would be better instead of outright quitting. A rest from Santharian stuff isn't a crime, if you need it, just let the rest of us know :fish

So glad you decided to come back, Vir!! *hugs* But you can never really leave you know.....not after you've signed your the rest of your life and first-born child in dedication to Santharia and blood no less :read  Wahahahahaha!!!

Let's see... *squints*

"I cannot read the fiery letters..."

"But I can. The letters are Styrash, of an ancient mode. But the language is that of Coor, which I shall not utter here. In the common tongue it runs like this:

One Dream, to rule them all,
One Dream to find them,
One Dream, to lure them all,
And to Santharia bind them,
In the lands of Arti, where the members lie."

*Grabs her Santh joining contract and reads it... noticing the small red lines at the bottom... takes out a loupe.*

When did he get my blood???
Must have been that time that I bled on the keyboard...

Hey, there really isn't much to worry about aside from the fact that you've sold your soul to Santharia with signing the contract! I thought I mentioned that here and there, or didn't I? Of course it isn't really necessary to point that out right from the start, you know, but it's definitely visible on the contract written with font size 0.5 - and a Brownie can perhaps even read it without a magnifying glass... So no need to complain! :biggrin

Viresse, I know what you mean.  When I went off to Basic Training I everything I was kinda happy to get away.  I have posted or written nearly as much as many people here, but I got burned out a little anyway.  While in Basic and my initial army training I found out how much I truly missed it.  I know I can't write as often as I used to, but it is nice to just be a part of the community here again.  Dala is right when she says an occasional sabbatical is the best.  It's like a vacation for the imagination!
