That should be my new username. For various reasons I haven't been very active on here for a while. I apologize for that and am going to try and be better going forward. One of the reasons I've been quite is Amy and I split up. Don't feel too bad, it was actually a few months ago. I'm good now. What happened? Amy finished her program and was looking for a teaching position. They're not very common meaning she would probably have to move to start her career quickly. The other option would be sticking around and waiting for the phone to ring as a substitute.
I thought I was playing the supportive boyfriend through this but Amy felt differently. The result was she wanted to take a "break." I don't really know what that means either. What I think it meant was if she found a job in the area we would stay together, if she had to move we were done. That sort of sentiment didn't make me want things to work out. It wasn't a hostile break up, we even still talk a little, but it's done.
If you were hoping for more stories from my love life with Amy it's unlikely. Sorry. Good news for you is that I do have some story ideas from my past I'd like to share here and even if I'm not getting any there's always fiction. I even have one story written, I wrote it months ago! I haven't posted it since I really don't like how it turned out. You'll probably see it in your deviations in the near future. I'm going to force myself to post it! In advance, I warned you it sucks. It'll be hard to miss, though. It has an eye-catching preview image…
So… how about those new username symbols? I didn't like them at first but they've grown on me. The old ones were too… DOS? They could be confusing too. I watch someone whose username starts with a lowercase i and it always looked like a ! like she deleted her account. That's much clearer now. The new username symbols also have unlimited potential for variations. $ may be gone but it's not forgotten.
