Life has taken a turn for me. Not only did I just move, but I then had an Aunt in a very serious car crash and I'm now helping to care for her children while she recovers. It's not an imposition for me, I love my little cousins, but it does absorb time.
I've also realized that, for some time now, I have been neglecting the truly important things in my life(family, spirituality, general responsibility) for the sake of entertainment, be it online RPing, video games, TV, etc. These things are certainly not 'bad' in their own right... but I've realized that the person I want to be cannot devote much time to these hobbies without sacrificing pursuit of more important goals.
I love the collaborative adventures I've been sharing with you guys. I truly do. I must, however, say goodbye. This is a painful choice but, for the sake of those I love and for the sake of growing into a better man, I have decided to 'unplug' for awhile.
Perhaps when I've met my personal growth goals, I may find time to pursue a hobby again.
You are all awesome, awesome people and I wish you all the best. I also offer my appologies for the disruption this decision will cause for your stories.
