  1. Lets all respect his absence and not tag him to avoid making his mailbox overflow...

    Just kidding.lets flood it to show him he was missed.

    P.s. hope you'll come back with renewed interest.and take as much time off as you need.i've burned out hobbies myself and it feels terrible right after

  2. Alrighty then, I have an announcement of sorts. I'm going to be taking a break for the forums for a while. I know that this seems to have come from nowhere... but this has been in the making for a while, believe it or not. While I can't say exactly how long I'll be gone... I'll probably post another update in about a week or so. If you want any further details, then you can check out my latest blog entry.

    Regardless...

      Alright then. I fear my good night messages may become more absent of responses though without you around. Lol jk.

      I hope you have a great time while you are away, and we will welcome you back with open arms (Hooves? Legs? Idk.).

      Understandable, we all need a break sometimes.ย 

      I read the blog entry and while I didn't comment or such, I understand fully.ย 

      Nevertheless, I wish you the best and await your return, whenever that may be.ย

    Starting a blog like this is pretty difficult, since there isn't a good place to start... so with that said, let me just get straight to the point, instead of just meandering about. Ever since I started homeschool in 3rd grade... I've developed a habit of sorts. I'm not sure if going to a public school would have prevented this, bus that's besides the point. Basically, I don't take long-term breaks. Sure, I'll take 30 minutes off of my assignments to grab a meal, but that doesn't mean that I'll stop doing them that day, even during the late hours of the night. Perhaps I'm a workaholic? Who knows. Regardless... this habit always makes me reach the same outcome in my personal interest in hobbies, and I don't want it to happen again. What is this process that I'm referring to? Well, it goes hand-in-hand with how I don't take breaks, and this has become a pretty consistent (and most likely unhealthy) series of events. So, basically... I start a hobby, or take part in some sort of activity, usually specializing in one thing. For example, I'll start watching movies in a certain franchise, play games in a certain franchise... you get the idea. When I develop an interest, I go all out, basically. When I start getting involved in these interests, I start vehemently keeping up with them; I join their Forums, I buy the merchandise, I watch the movies, I play the video games, etc. and etc.. This is where the "no-breaks" tendency of mine comes in. When I stat getting tired of the hobby... I don't take a break from it, I just keep pursuing it. The process goes like this: I do something new, and I love it. I continue to do the thing, and I love it. I continue to do the thing, and I love it. Then my first sign of burnout comes along; I get a little bit tired of it. Normally, someone would take a short break when they reach this stage... but not me. So I continue to do the thing, and I like it. I continue to do the thing, and I like it. I continue to do the thing, and I like it. Then my second burnout phase comes along. Even if someone was pretty persistent, they would probably realize that they needed to throw in the towel for a little bit... but you know me better than that. So, I continue to do the thing... and it's alright. I continue to do the thing... and it's alright. I continue to do the thing... and it's alright. Inevitably, my third burnout phase comes along. At this point, it's pretty much vital to take a break from the activity, or I run the serious risk of never wanting to come back to it... but, worst case scenario... I persist. So, for some odd reason... I continue to do the thing... and I hate it. I continue to do the thing... and I hate it. I continue to do the thing... and I hate it. And then, my fourth burnout phase comes along... but it's different this time. I'm not merely burned out on doing it anymore, I'm absolutely incinerated. Any chance of me ever coming back to a hobby which I've reached this stage with is infinitesimal. This is basically what happened with me and video games; I just kept going at it again and again and again and again... completely ignoring the outright displeasure I was taking in the activity... and it was too late by the time I decided to stop. It has been 8 months since I've last touched a video game... and I still dread the thought on some level. I'll admit that a few games have piqued my curiosity... but those are fleeting at best. Regardless, I'm sure you get the idea by now. I'm sure that you realized that I bolded one of those lines, right? Well, that's what stage I'm in with the Forums. If I don't just take a step back now... I'm going to regret it. So, with that said... I'm going to be taking a break for a while. I can't say how long I'll be away, but I'll estimate a week or so. I want to leave the Forums on a high note, rather than repeat history. I've burned out on YouTube videos, I've burned out on some varieties of music, I've burned out on Godzilla movies, I've nigh-irrecoverably burned out on video games... I'm sure you understand by now. I'm always left a hollow shell after those burnouts as well. Maybe it's just because I have so little going on that any distraction needs to last as long as possible to make me feel a sense of purpose... I don't know. Either way, I've been locking myself in a vicious cycle ever since I was young of becoming a hollow shell, finding a truly fulfilling interest, and then becoming a hollow shell again... which leads to me starting back at Square One. The Forums have been some of the best times I've ever had on the internet... and I don't want to grow sour to them. I don't want them to just be yet another hobby which I'll throw into the recycling bin after I'm finished with it. So, with all that said... ๐“ข๐“ฝ๐“ช๐”‚, ๐“ฏ๐“ช๐“ซ๐“พ๐“ต๐“ธ๐“พ๐“ผ, ๐“ฎ๐“ฟ๐“ฎ๐“ป๐”‚๐“ธ๐“ท๐“ฎ~! ๐“˜'๐“ต๐“ต ๐“ผ๐“ฎ๐“ฎ ๐”‚๐“ธ๐“พ ๐“ช๐“ต๐“ต ๐“ผ๐“ธ๐“ธ๐“ท~!

  7. Alrighty then, that should be a wrap for today, so I suppose I ought to head off to bed. :grin:

    Today was yet another uneventful day... but I will say one thing: I really love the architecture of malls and airports! Ever since I was a child, I have loved large buildings. They just inspire a sense of adventure, and there's always so much to do in them! At the same time,though... they can make you really appreciate home. Even though the blood-pumping feeling of discovery, and the large crowds of folks doing the same can be invigorating... nothing can match the coziness of home.

    ... Can you tell that I'm reaching for things to say? :D Either way...

      Sweet dreams! Seeya tomorrow!

      If you like big malls, buildings, airports, youโ€™ll like where I live. There happens to be the tallest buildingย andย the biggest mall (been there a million times). And there are many airports. Like everywhere else? I donโ€™t know :Pย 

      True, the coziness of home is also where you feel safest..
