Dear John

*dusts off the cobwebs*

Wow, it's been a while, hasn't it?

I haven't written in this journal in about a year. This is for a number of reasons, the primary one being that life just got in the way.

I know there aren't very many left of you, if any, who still follow this journal; if you do, thanks for sticking around this long.

I don't want to take up too much of your time, but I'm just here to say goodbye to all of you and to thank you for all your kind words and for opening my eyes to so many of the things I've grown to love and appreciate the most in my life. What started off as me just being really into bandom, ended up with me discovering such beautiful people who helped me discover so many fantastic new worlds, and introduced me to some of my favorite things and people.

Whether it's comments on my entries, or fics you've written or just posts about your lives, the fact of the matter is you all are the reason I found what I care most about. Looking through my f-list I see some names that make me so happy, just knowing that I had a chance to interact with you, because you all are some of the most beautiful people I have ever met. It was through all of you that I discovered my love for literature, the reason I'm going to be majoring in English Lit when I start college in September. You all made me discover my passions for so many things and again, there are no words to express my gratitude for that.

But the fact of the matter is, the things that made this LJ so important to me, bandom in particular, aren't quite as big a part of my life as they used to be. In fact, a lot of the things I discussed here aren't really a part of me anymore. Which is why, given these and the new beginnings I'll be embarking on very soon, I think it's only appropriate that I start fresh.

I wish I could take you all with me, but that wouldn't be a fresh start, would it? And I'm afraid that the new interests I've taken on wouldn't interest you all very much. So instead I'm going to make a clean break.

If you'd really like to keep in contact with me, please comment on this entry and I'll be sure to contact you once I've established my new account and gotten things in order. I don't see this happening too much, considering that I haven't even visited this journal in so long and I think you all have already forgotten about me.

So this is my Dear John letter; it wouldn't seem right to just shove off without letting you all know of the profound influence you've all had on my life, how much I love you all for it, and how I'll be forever in your debt, because you gave me some of the greatest things in my life.

Thank you all again,
Maggie
