I hadn't realized how much this community still meant to me until I felt that it was gone. I'm no longer the obsessed LJer who used to try for hours to get to answer a support request, or who read HTML books so he could attempt to design the perfect journal layout. For a moment, LJ was my life (pathetic, I know), but now, LJ is part of my life, and I can't imagine a world without these amazing people (that would be you, folks).
I'm still a little scared, but I'm going to live by the mantra I've been shoving down my roommate's throat for the last two days . . .
It's nothing until it's something
You're all special, and I'm a better person for knowing you.
