In keeping with the theme  
I mentioned on my dA blog that September is always super busy for me and that it seems to be a season of change, this year being no exception. September also seems to be my "Spring cleaning" month for reasons I don't even know. I don't know if I got Heather into the habit or she got me into the habit, but it's something we've always done since we have been roommates. My poor husband, should that be in the cards for me, has no idea what is in store for him with me! In this cleaning process, redoing my room and things, I've gotten rid of quite a bit of stuff that I had an emotional attachment to but no longer served any real purpose in my life. (Thank you, Hoarders! I will never be cluttered again!) In this process I realized I need to de-clutter my social networking relationships as well.

There are a lot of people I'm "friends" with on Facebook that I never see, hear from, talk to, whose posts I hide because I don't like them, who I basically ignore because we have absolutely nothing in common except for the fact that we once knew one another when we were very different people in life and have now grown into people neither one of us would recognize should we ever meet face to face again. So what is the point in us being friends? There really isn't one. So I'm going through my FB sometime this week and just cleaning it out. Same with dA, same with here, same with Twitter. It's time to shed my skin and make an effort with those who want to have a real relationship with me, and say goodbye to those who are just kind of there. If you happen to be one of those people I really am sorry, but you have to see the logic of it.

I hate those posts I see all the time on FB saying, "If you want to still be friends leave a comment!" because I think that's really kind of dumb. Don't stay friends with someone because they want to keep their number of friends high, stay friends with someone because there is an actual give and take to the friendship.

Not exactly sure why all of this is coming up but I've learned when I have a nudging I need to listen. So I'm following that spiritual prompting that I have been feeling for the past two weeks. Time to let go.

I also really need to buckle down and start recording lines for "A Stomach Full of Fluttershys" so I am not the one holding up the project. Heck, I was flattered to be asked to do it so I should just do it! But first I need to go pay a visit to my rheumatologist because my calendar said it is that time.

Also, ONE VOICE TONIGHT! I'm quite excited now that I've decided to do it. I miss my family.
