I finally came to a realization that's been a long time coming today. And that realization is that after nine years on NS, I no longer enjoy being here.
I think I've been slowly coming to this realization for awhile. I mostly stopped participating in political discussions a couple years ago. For awhile now, there have been just a few forum threads that I still visited regularly. But even those have lost their shine of late.
Having been around as long as I have, I've seen many people pop in and fade out of the NS World. Some became friends, and some definitely were not. I'm glad I had the interactions I did. But I just don't have the energy or time to waste on something I'm not enjoying anymore. And so it is now my turn to be the one to fade from the scene. The funny thing is I don't think there are too many still around to care too much.
I'd like to give a big thanks to the folks in the sports threads in NSG and especially the NFL thread. You all are the only reason I stuck around as long as I did, and I appreciate you guys and even consider some of you friends.
The Star Wars thread as well, is formerly a place where I had interesting debates and discussions. And for those of you who made that thread a mostly enjoyable experience, I thank you.
And if any of my old TET pals from back in the day happen to see this, I appreciate you all too and the old conversations we once had.
Anyway. Enough mushy stuff. Moral of the story, I'm leaving. On the off chance that anyone who doesn't already have me on Discord wants to stay in touch, shoot me a TG. I'll log in a couple more times to check my mailbox. Otherwise, so long NS. Thanks for the good, the bad, and even the ugly.
