Well everybody, I'm sorry to say it's time to disappear in a way. I've been here for a long time, but it seems so short in the long run. I plan to pop in every once in a while but it'll be few and far between. If you want to contact me I'm at firstname.lastname@example.org or sometimes I may be on the chat thing. Anyway, mostly I'm saying this to sever some ties. I'd love to be remembered as veteran pocker but I was not even close to being in the original 50. I never really contributed anything good to ani-pock in my knowledge. Never really helped anyone with my advice or something. Looking back I wish I had done more. In fact, my best surviving legacy is my biggest failiure here on a-p. This is the main thing I have to kill. The ani-dub, as it was called, did not ever bear fruit. I wish I could have seen it through but I guess not. Too many people have left, too many have joined. Amidst this chaos I sit, I watch, I remember. A time long past where it was simple. Where there were fewer pockers to remember. Where someone was a friend or an enemy, never just a wandering nobody. I miss the pond, I miss the cabins, I miss the little sign welcoming newcomers to a small little town with a population of twenty. Of those twenty, only a few remain as they were on the list. A few may have changed their name, but in the years that I've known them, we all have grown a little more mature, a little more adult, and drifted a little more apart. So I say good bye to the pockyworld I once knew, to the friends I once had. Life is more complicated than it was and I'll have to take it in stride. Maybe someday I can return to the tree on which I spent so many hours talking with my old friends, but for now, I will live in this new ani-pock. I will meet new people and friends, and I will stake claim to a new sapling for my support.
