But I’m sorry to say it’s not for long.
Just this one post.
So you can probably tell what’s coming. I’m not going to be posting on this blog anymore. I have had one of the best experiences of my life on this blog, but it’s just not fun anymore. I haven’t been playing much with my dolls either. I’ve found it a struggle to write and do something with my dolls just for this blog. I stressed out about blogging, at the same time stressing out about school. A while ago I realized it was time to stop, and figure something out.
After several conversations with my parents, I decided that it was time to move on. No, I did not grow out of my dolls, I just moved on. ‘Growing out’ implies growing up. But I haven’t grown up. I’m still the same strange and shy teenager that is still trying to hold onto childhood a bit longer.
All I am doing is moving onto a new chapter of my life. This experience is something I hope to never forget, because it has helped me improve and grow immensely. I have learned so much from everything in this AG blogging community.
I am not going to give away my dolls. I will always keep them. They are going to stand up next to my desk, always there if I ever need them. I am not going to be closing this blog. I will not lose the many memories I hold very dear. I would love looking back on my old posts, remembering the happiness I achieved.
Thank you readers, for wanting to read my weirdness.
Thank you commenters, for making me smile.
Thank you new friends, for making me so happy, being so kind, and being there for me.
Thank you mother and father, for helping me get through this.
I really don’t know what to say. I just… this whole thing… it makes me feel sad. But, you know, ‘sad is happy for deep people.’
So. I have news, too.
I am NOT stopping blogging.
I have a new blog.
It’s a ‘me’ blog. I’ll have no limits to my posts. I’m looking forward to share more fun stuff about me there.
Thanks to my wonderful dad for helping me put it together (even though you managed to destroy and recover this blog in the process).
The blog address? It’s priyakate.com.
I’d love it if you stick with me through this new blog, but I’m not forcing you to. There will most likely not be any AG posts, so I know I’ll lose a lot of you readers. But nevertheless, I want to keep in touch with you all. Email me anytime at priya AT americangirlplayground DOT com and I’d love to hear from you.
I don’t know what else there is to say.
Au revoir (goodbye), I guess.
Or à bientôt (see you soon), for those of you moving along with me.
Once again, THANK YOU. The world of blogging and AG and dolls means so much to me.
