I think that Simon's announcement that this venue was closing was the catalyst. I looked around the other forums and realized I just don't need them anymore. I have logged in here probably 10% of my former time since the announcement, first to do the 'admin' stuff that was happening immediately following - but now usually only once a day, maybe 10 minutes, and can't even find much of interest while I do that.
JWD was the Internet to me for most of the past 3 years. Once it closes, I will be fine. I am getting busy with other interests now. Wifey is busy with her education online now, and I will likely follow her example shortly, likely before the snow flies.
So, as life changes, so am I. I am finding time now to get those projects done that were often neglected. I am staying in better personal touch with many from this forum by phone and email, instead of thru a less personal discussion forum.
I really think I am on my way to being that elusive EX-XJW.
But I might be getting forgetful too - since now that I have written this, it seems familiar, as if I have started a thread before this that said mostly the same things. LOL My indifference to that is just as acute. I can't be bothered to go back and look.
Anyone else find that the closing of JWD is stepping them forward in personal growth and less dependency?
