  • Hey, everybody! It's been a really long time so I figured I'd give a life update for anyone on here who even still recognizes me.

    1. College is going great! Majoring in creative writing, it's been so fun and I'm really enjoying it.
    2. Acting is really taking off. I'm consistently getting jobs at a paying theatre, so my part-time work during school has been exhausting but it's been shows, so it's been stuff I really enjoy getting to do.
    3. Just an expansion on college. I've taken so many AMAZING classes on writing! I love my professors, and I've created so many pieces of work that I'm really really proud of.

    Socially, I'm in a bit of a weird place, but being neurodivergent, I can't really expect much different. I'm trying my best to make good friends and keep them. I miss everybody on here. Honestly, I said in December that logging on had started to make me anxious, and that hasn't changed yet. I hadn't logged on for two months before today because I was just--worried. You're all amazingly talented though. Honestly, I think college is just tough and draining, a lot more than high school. I haven't had the emotional or creative energy to pour into here like I did. Still, I love it here, and I love all of y'all, and I miss y'all, even if I'm here more sparsely than I used to be. I hope you're all doing well.

    I'm not caught up on the people page, so feel free to comment below to tell me what's been going on with y'all, or to message me! I miss y'all, and I'm sorry for the radio silence for such a long time. <33


    Quillfeather Glads it's going well winter<3

    hope you’re well winter. i really do miss seeing you around and i’m sorry if i haven’t expressed that. take as much time as you need to, and don’t feel you have to go back to full activity. i’d be happy just to see you around from time to time. i also do feel sometimes like people here don’t care and don’t check in on me when i’m not active for a while, even if that’s not their intention, so i definitely understand how you feel. all that to say you’re in my thoughts and prayers. <3

    hey love, I’m so sorry that this got lost in the notifications. I’ve missed seeing you too. You don’t need to apologize. I think it’s just how YWS works unfortunately. It’s meant to bury. Everyone active is just constantly clawing their way to the surface. I am sorry if I have not checked up in the past. Thank you very much once again <3

  • Love everybody here. I probably shouldn’t have shared my last post here; what upset me is nobody’s fault, just how YWS works. Life moves on. I miss this place, but I don’t think I’m supposed to be back full-time right now. I have the free time, but it’s still overwhelming. We’ll see how we’re feeling in the new year. Sending love

    ~Winter


    Hkumar Hope you are doing good <3

    <3333333 just wanted to say i care. i'm sorry i didn't notice :[ i wish i could check in with all the wonderful people on yws and post on their walls whenever they're absent for a while, but there are so many things that distract me, and it's easier to interact with those who are currently active. ;-; but this is a good reminder for me to keep trying, at least ^^
    hope life is treating you alright, winter <3 *sends comfort food and a warm drink*
    slightly unrelated, but pads have been very active lately, and it'd be nice if you popped in sometime? :] i'd be delighted to chat with you there =DD <3

    you don’t need to apologize. I knew people wouldn’t notice for a long time before I stopped posting. I wrote and posted a poem over a year ago about knowing I’d be forgotten bc I never made an impact on the site, even though I tried. It isn’t new news, I just haven’t fully been able to come to terms with it. Thanks for the thoughts and offer to chat, I just don’t want to bring you down. Sending love. <33

    Spoiler! :
    i remember that poem! it really resonated with me because i was feeling forgotten too, about a year after i joined, i think. the way i came to terms with it was realizing that if i stay active, people will remember me. and... even legendary ywsers who made an impact in their day aren't known by many current ywsers, because people drift away and eventually there aren't many left who remember them. it's pretty sad. idk. i just... when i feel forgotten, my solution is to jump into things around the site, partly because i do enjoy those things, but also maybe partly so i can meet new people who'll remember me. *shrugs* okay that got kinda rambly. but- yeah.
    *sends love back* :> <333

  • It’s gotten to the point that I’m anxious to even check YWS. I go days without logging on. Haven’t checked people tab in at least a month. Haven’t posted on my wall until now since August. Nobody really cares. Nobody noticed. Not an accusation, just the truth. I don’t really know what to do. I used to love this place so much, I don’t know why it’s making me feel this way now.


    Dossereana <33333 My PM box is always open if you need to talk about anything, I won't judge! I hope that you can find something that will help you with your anxiety.

  • I've taken a deep breath. I've stopped crying. Life is not over.

  • Ending a show after you’ve done more than thirty in the span of six weeks is genuinely heartbreaking. I’ve spent every day with these people for two months, and I feel like I’m dying after even a couple hours away from them. How am I supposed to survive forever?
