So Long, Farewell

For those who've been watching How I Met Your Mother regularly know this season has been an example of a great show being thrown in to a trash pile and sent to the dump.  The same show that inspired the name you see across the header (if you're actually on the site, that is).

Timing can be such a funny thing.

When I started this blog, there was a lot of "Instead" that I needed to Be Awesome of.  A crappy economy landing me in an unfortunate job situation, a shattered heart, drama with friends.  I needed this outlet. Now? I don't need to use humor to cover up the healing.  I need humor because I'm funny and like funny people.

Don't get me wrong, my life is still far from perfect, but I'm content...happy...at peace.  I actually grew up, gasp (let's not confuse growing up with maturity)!  You all have helped immensely in getting me there.  I've made what I know will be lifelong friendships with many of you.  Blogging really is a cheaper option than therapy.

It's with my newly found serenity that I say farewell to Be Awesome Instead. I hate when relationships linger without closure, and I've been a bad better half for awhile now.  No excuses, no guilt, I'm just done.  It's time. Thanks for the support over the past two and a half years!

Don't worry, I'm not completely disappearing from the internets...I'll still be lurking and you can always find me on Twitter and most Monday's at From the Sidelines (launching a new weekly feature this Friday you should check it out).

I understand. I get it. I still feel like a friend has died. Is that weird?

I think of you whenever Alex has bedhead or I eat a brownie. Or the niners play. You're not getting rid of me, even though I understand the impulse here and...sort of envy it.

Sads. HIMYM is better than The Office now at least. I will always love Marshall. I will keep on checking in at From the Sidelines when I feel like being sporty.

:( Sads, but I know where to find you. And I promise that the Jazz Hands Revolution will live on. Like KLZ I am a little envious of you too.

Sads, but so happy that you're in a good place where you don't need the outlet. And just think, now you get to hear my accent whenever you want ;)

Nooooooooooooooooooo! I'm really sad to hear this :( You will be missed, my friend. But I understand. And I'm glad you are in such a good place. Will still keep up with you wherever/whenever possible.

I'll be sure to stalk you on Twitter, too. Best wishes, Hutch! XOXO
