School started today, and I can already tell it's going to be a lot of work. All of my classes are buckling down and getting us ready for high school. Some classes won't give me too much homework, but others will, which is why I'm temporarily leaving. I'll have tests pretty much every week in different classes, and a few of them count for a LOT of my grade. Which is why I'm kind of leaving Polyvore. Last year, I didn't do my best. Now, I'm not blaming Polyvore like some people, it was mostly me, and me not studying, or taking enough notes, or paying attention. I did great though, with all A's and B's, but I know had I really put my mind to it, and tried, then I would've gotten all A's. Again, I'm not saying this was because of Polyvore, but it was part of it. I was always on, in fear that the second I got off, I would miss something great, something hilarious. Sick, right? I don't know why, but I was always wondering what was happening, and I always had to know. It's almost like it was addicting. But I've realized this, and have come to terms with the fact that I need to part from this website, because it's not healthy. I need to really throw myself into my work this year. 8th grade counts. It sets the base for the rest of my high school years. What I learned in 8th grade grows into what I'll be learning in 9th, 1Oth, 11th, 12th, and so on. If I don't take 8th grade seriously, my teachers won't take me seriously. And if I slack, and don't start these good, healthy habits of studying, and taking notes, then that's going to continue in high school, because that's the way I am. I'll try to be on as much as possible, but I can't guarantee you guys that it will be a whole lot. I think everyone is kind of starting to realize what Polyvore does to you;a lot of people are leaving, if not now, then soon.
I'm not leaving DEFINITELY because I love this website and the people on it way too much, but just in case anyone leaves, or if I just don't come on, I want to give a few shout outs to my friends on here.
@sydneyreneexo Oh gosh Sydney, where do I even begin. We started talking in June I think? I was a little intimidated to PM you, but I did. And I'm SO glad I did. You are honestly one of the most prettiest, funniest girls on Polyvore. I love you and your sets. If I don't return (which is highly unlikely) you have my Skype and Formspring, so we're not completely disconnected♥
@krissi Oh Krissi! I can't even begin to describe you. We need to make a date to meet somewhere, like the ice skating rink or something! It's insane to think that I drove past your house, and didn't even know you lived there! We HAVE to do more tinychats & skype on weekends! Your sets are amazing, you're gorgeous, and I love you so much!
@kimmiep We never really talked, but we had a few TinyChats, and I think we talked for a little bit here and there. I don't think I ever really told you this, so I'm going to say it all now. Kimberly, you are absolutely gorgeous, your sets are SO amazing, and you're so so so nice. If anyone ever tells you other wise, you need to know that it is NOT true. At all. When you were leaving, I was on a MISSION to find your new account. I was asking all around Polyvore, searching new members, and when someone new added me that recently joined, I automatically asked if they were you. I wasn't giving up until I found you, haha. You are honestly one of my biggest inspirations on Polyvore, and I really really hope you see how beautiful you are.
@dearjasey We talked a little bit on Formspring, but I just wanted to let you know that I admire your sets! Whenever I was in a bad mood, one of your sets popped up and I would literally laugh out loud. I really hope we can talk more, and get to know eachother at some point! And I'm still bleeding envy! (;
@darcie We would talk more if someeeeebodyyy wasn't so bad at answering their PMs(; I'm kidding, but for the little bit that we did talk, you seem like such a sweet girl. And everyone needs to hop off you! Yes, you've had a drink or two, it's not totally bad, as long as you're being responisble about it. You're sets are amazing, and you are SO pretty, so I really hope we talk more too as well!
@recklesswh0re Clustin is life! We don't talk much anymore, which saddens me, I miss you! I'll try to keep up with the story, but I've been a little behind lately! I'll make sure to definitely stay in touch!
@katrinaballerina Katrina! You're sets are truly spectacular, and I wish I could make mine look like that! When I first joined and saw your sets, I was like "Why so classy..." IDK, I was totally into preppy girly frilly stuff, and your sets were slightly different, in a magnificent way. After like, a month, I was like Hey, these are amazing! Annnnnd so now I stalk your fashion sets, oops! You're so nice, and so gorgeous, I really hope we can talk more!
@allie-loves-you Allie, I seriously can't think of anyway to describe you! (In a good way!) We had our little obsessions together over Justin, and flipped on some girls who insulted them, and you're seriously one of the nicest, prettiest girls on here. PM me, we should seriously talk more! Oh, and maybe I'll see you in Australia.... (;
@bringhomethesmiles @kelbells46 @mrsclaudiamonteith @forevermelissa-xo I see you guys everyday, so peace my hoes. You guys are gonna slaughter me tomorrow when you see this, but OH WELL!
Okay, so I think that's it, I'm SO sorry if I forgot you, I've been typing for so long and I'm getting a little confused, so I'll try to add you as I think of you!
Again, I am NOT DEFINITELY leaving, just a little break while I get settled into 8th grade.
To anyone who has ever faved any of my sets, even ONE, thank you SO much. Whenever I see "_____ liked __ set(s)" I get so excited, you have no idea how much it means to me! I seriously love everyone on here. And if you've ever wanted to PM me, but I don't know, felt intimidated, or shy, PLEASE do not! I can pretty much guarantee that I will respond, and I'm not mean, I swear, haha!
I think that's it, and I'm choking up now, why I don't know, I'm not even definitely leaving, but it's time to end this little chapter.
