“She is dancing away from me now
She was just a wish
And a memory is all that is left for you now
You see your gypsy~”
My Final Swan Song, So Long.
Ahhhh, soooo. It’s coming upon the witching hour. This time tomorrow I’ll be on that midnight plane to Georgia…aka to Europe for 2-3yrs Peace Corps service…thus it’s about time I say my official farewell to you good people. I’ve thought too much about what I’ve wanted to say, leave behind, and such. Perhaps from being here for over 3 years I haven’t let it sink in that I won’t be here to share and contribute to the sims community like I have been. Being here and simming has become a big part of my life, especially in university, so it hurts to pause this journey. Argh, I have so many more stories to tell, ideas I feel I must simmify…but alas, oh well. Being here has broadened my perspective on arts, motivated me to research topics beyond my knowing, and of course led me to many individuals who I love seeing as my peers and friends.
I will miss you all. I take lots of joy in sharing my creations, and discovering that there are those who find my alien species, fantasy creatures, cultural sims, and others as enjoyable/not insane as I do. Although I loathe tumblr in all it’s lameness, simblr is indeed why I stayed and that says so much about you guys than it does me. I may have internet and will be able to check in, but being a lurker won’t be the same, and honestly, I know no follows me for my text posts ;) Who knows, maybe I’ll even be able to sim, but it won’t be for awhile as I adjust to my new life/job overseas.
Rather start gushing and sobbing I leave here a final image of all my muses -Yema: my heart, Metzli: my mind, & Ikumnbe: my body- alongside my molding clay -Ipo (in white)- parts of me I’m also saying farewell to as I likely leave sims behind, but will keep with me. True, they’re only special to me, buuuut they’re special to me. Think of them as me leaving small, yet loving fragments of myself for people I care for….
So. “So long, farewell, to you, my friends. Goodbye for now, until we meet again.”
