Hey everyone. I just wanted to let people know that I am probably not going to be very active, if at all, from now on. It's been a long, great five years on DeviantART, but due to a multitude of reasons I am drifting away from this site.
I could talk about how I don't like the new site layout, or how dA doesn't really feel the same as it did 3 years ago, but there's no point. Things change. People move on. Now it's my time.
I am in my second year of college as a Wildlife and Conservation Biology major. I plan on doing research for the next few years, or hopefully trying to get into education/public outreach. I spend a lot of time working on my nature blog (www.ohionature.blogspot.com) in an attempt to learn more about nature, and to also hopefully teach something to those interested. As a result of school and life, I've found my drive for "artistic" photography waning. More focus has been put on education and experiencing life.
For those of you who on dA who have impacted my life in some way, including those who have left and will never get the change to see this, I want to thank you. It's been great. It's been fun. It's been a crazy ride filled with meeting awesome people from all over the world. The internet is amazing at making those things happen.
Thank you to everyone, and have a great life. Who knows, maybe I'll meet some of you again somewhere else out there. Until then, enjoy life.
