This isn't goodbye, and I've tried this once before, but this time I really think I am going to be spending a lot less time on Hubski. I'm sharing this with you because I don't know why. I like you guys, I respect you guys, and I think you guys deserve to know.

I'll still post Happy Saturdays and he occasional craft thread, because in all honesty, it makes me feel good to do so. I think though, with the way people have been talking on Hubski, Reddit, the news, now's not the time to be pissing away hours on the internet. Everybody is feeling a cocktail of emotions and it's gonna probably get worse. So I'm going to be doing my best to be focusing on my family, on my friends, and my community.

So I'll be at the comic shop on my days off. I'll be spending as much time as possible with the religious communities I've recently become a part of. I'll be at Cars and Coffee, maybe join a quilting guild or something, take family and friends out to dinners, movies, and local shows. I'm going to do my best to be there for the people just by being a positive part of their lives and I encourage you all to do the same.

I'm not going to lie. Like usual, I have no idea what I'm doing and like usual I'm very tired and very scared about the world and my future in it. I do know that I'm not the only one who feels this way and I do know we can't allow each other to feel like this. So I'm gonna play it by ear, try to fix myself and maybe the world around me a bit.

Wish me luck in trying to touch the people that I love. Wish them luck. Wish us all luck. The world deserves better.


Take care of your shit dude, don't be a stranger. Pop in for Pubski each week and let us know you are OK.
