Title: Leaving...sorta!
Post by: Lanie on January 04, 2006, 03:02:23 PM
Hi folks!

I've come to the conclusion that I just don't really have anything to openly contribute here.  And that's what a forum is all about.  I just feel like there are too many youngsters here and lately the only thing I've been doing is lurking anyway or posting colored photos and that's hardly constructive.  Lots of little bits are starting to bug me, but mostly it's just that I feel kind of... I dunno, like I can't do anything, I just have been reading and not really saying much that could contribute to an interesting discussion.  I won't delete my account or anything and I'll still be around, I just won't post; I'll be more of a lurker, which is what I've kind of been lately anyway!

I've met some great great friends on here and I'd like to thank Bob and Rob and all the wonderful mods for their hard work on this forum.  You guys rock!  :-*

Also school is starting up again and it's my last semester at community college before I transfer and because I am a total slacker--well--my grades are mediocre at best.  So I gotta try to will myself to actually work constructively on schoolwork for once in my life...

If anyone wants to contact me, you can PM and I think a good lot of you know my email address and AIM SN anyway.

Lanie, nothing wrong with "lurking"--or, maybe the more accurate term would be "just looking"!  ;)  You've contributed a great deal to this board and probably will again, but of course your studies come first, so I think you've made an extremely wise decision. Good luck, and we'll "see" you again when you have the time and inclination to post.

Well, as long as you don't *completely* disappear, I think I can handle it.  :-/

Good luck at school!

I won't completely disappear.  I'll still post occasionally, just... probably goofing around on the loony claimants board rather than contributing since I have nothing to really contribute anymore.

Your post are always interesting, Lanie. I learned a lot of things from you. I agree that the Palace Fourms are becoming a little...How can I said it? A little "light" , but there is lots of people who post interesting infos, yet.

Hope we are not loosing you for ever! Keep lurking, and when you like...come again, girlie that we'll be always here ready to welcome you all times you feel like it!  ;)

We all have something to contribute, and we always do, but sometimes we have to focus on real life..though this is my real life, needless to say! I think Lanie has contributed alot, and it's good to just read the forum, too. :)

Lanie, let me just say that I think you're one of the smartest people around here. I'm sorry you feel you have nothing to contribute, that's just not true.  :'( But I hope to see you around now and again.

Lanie, I understand that you need to focus on your schoolwork. You are one of the smartest people on the AP. I have always admired you and aspired to one day be as smart about the Romanovs as you. You will always be wanted here.  :) And I hope to hear from you know and then.
