Jeff and I, the two greatest Canadian Post Whores of this site, decided to reach 10,000 together, because its original, and no one else has done that before. (And because we rock.) In addition to reaching 10,000 awesome posts, I am leaving for awhile. I wrote this little note to give people an idea of whats going on. As I write this, I shake my head at what Ive been through over the past 2 years. Countless diagnosis, heart break, graduation, 19th birthday, gender confusion, suicidal desires, ecstasy and rave obsessions that could have had me dead, but most of all... finding love. Ive been a member of this board for over 2 years and Ive learned so much about myself. My posts and my blog have led others to understand pieces of my crazy life, in good ways and bad. I bear my soul to the judgments of others, not really worrying about what was to happen. This is the only place I really feel I belong, I dont enjoy interaction of the real variety, I prefer to be able to live my life through a computer screen, life hurts less here. Ive had a few friends over the years, but no one stuck around and supported me when I was going through the roughest times of my life. This board has brought more good people into my life than I know what to do with. One in particular, most have probably seen my posts about him and how much I adore this boy. So Ill say it officially for my 10k post. There are lots of really awesome people on this site, I met my favorite person by responding to an adorable avatar. Purely beautiful, I thanked him for adding cuteness to the site, from then on weve been getting to know each other. Its a few days short of a year that he has continued to grace me with his presence. He has an infectious smile and amazing qualities about him. Hes made my life so much better in so many ways, Ive also learned to love again. Next January for my 22nd birthday, I get to fly off far away to meet him, this has motivated me to do so much. But its time to take a break, I made it to 10,000 posts, I reached my goal. I am officially a post whore. Most reside in the numerous questions people ask on a daily basis. But I feel my ability to not chew out every idiot I come across is over coming the usefulness I once used to add. So Ill take a break and work on myself. I need to loose some weight and spend time with the my first guinea pig who is slowly slipping away from me. Ill stick around to moderate the groups Ive created and to answer private messages. I can be reached there, other than that, its time to grow as a person.
