I never thought this day would come. I hoped it wouldn't, prayed even. I have decided to leave Iwaku. Iwaku was my first online roleplay site. When I first came here I fell in love with the site immediately. Iwaku became more than just a roleplay site to me, It became a way out of the harsh realities of life. Iwaku was a place I could escape, vent, and express myself. Iwaku helped me get through some of the darkest times of my life. I am so thankful to Iwaku, and all of it's staff and members. Iwaku has helped me become a better writer, and for that I am eternally thankful. I have always believed that I would be on Iwaku for as long as it exists. It is really hard for me to do this but I feel like it is time. First of all Iwaku is changing in ways I really do not like. Second, Iwaku filled a sort of social void for me. I used to live in a small town, where the only other person i was friends with was fel. It's different now. I live in a new city, and I am going to college. I don't have a social black hole anymore. third, and most importantly, I just can't do this anymore. I can sit and write for hours, but the moment I try to come up with a character for a roleplay my mind goes blank. I try hard to come up with ideas, but for some reason i just cannot contribute to the site anymore. I have decided to shift my creative energies. I have dusted off my old deviantart account, and soon I will be putting up my writings. I am sorry for being over dramatic about all of this. I am sure a simple I am leaving would suffice. I suppose that's just not how I do things. Thank you, and goodbye.
