Um, hello all. I didn't think I'd be back here again. I don't really know what I'm doing here, nor do I know what I'm about to write, but hey, we'll just see how it goes and god knows what I'll actually end up posting.
You'd all know I left some time ago (well those of you who were around), without bothering to say goodbye. And reasons for that was... well just that. I just didn't bother. I felt that nothing I could say would say anything that a "slinking away quietly" wouldn't. So that's what I did. There was never anything against NAO, or any people here. I sort of just felt...well, there just wasn't much point in staying. See? Even now I'm not giving any specific reasons. Typical me.
Anyway, I wasn't even a lurker until a few days ago when an email from an NAOee about a post I had written ages ago brought my attention back here. And of course, I noticed Markus_Carkus was around, as was Sammy, and MelMel. Frank was back, and so was wolf. So I started reading. And I thought omg, we're all making up, so um, I guess that's what I'm here for too.
I am wanting to make peace, remove all grudges and tell you all that NAO rocks. I apologise for not even saying goodbye- it was rude of me. NAO and NAOees taught me a whole heap about myself and about life, and about other people. My views on many things changed a lot during my time here. I'm not so ignorant, not so naive anymore. So I thank you all for that.
However (there's always a "however") I can't say "I'm back" because I don't think I am. Right now I feel that my life IRL is more important to me. It's like I've taken the things learnt in NAO and applying it to real life. It's like I've got too much going for me IRL to concentrate anything into NAO. I feel like there's no place in me for NAO and no place in NAO for me. I realise how rude I must be sounding right now but I don't quite know how else to say it.
So in conclusion, I give all my best wishes to everyone here. I genuinely hope that NAO continues to be great for the people involved, whether they change or stay the same. I hold no grudges against anyone.
To everyone, best of luck for the future (that's real life or NAO).
Yours with no grudges,
