Hey there, Noob-fans.  Well, as much as I hate to say it, my blog will be placed on the back burner for now; I officially start university next week.  I am finally on the path of fulfilling a dream.

I've had a couple of weeks head start, and I am throughly enjoying it.  I am off work full time now, and able to pursue my degree in English.  So far I am enjoying it, loving exercising my brain again.  The blog was a great way to bring back the feeling of how good it felt to write, and then expanding on that skill and polishing it.  But hey, isn't that what a writer's supposed to do?

I want to take time to thank you all for your support and encouragement over the last year.  I have to say, that this choice of life path, is the first time in my life that I haven't doubted myself and the career that I am pursuing.  The interest and encouragement of my writing that you have all given me, has sped me along my path.  Without all of you, I'm not sure I would've made it this far.  I would've given up within the first month, doubting what I had.  But I now know in my heart, what many of you have been trying to tell me for years, this is my path, and I feel in my soul, that this where I am meant to be and be doing.  I'm not sure where it will lead, business writing, book editing or journalism; or even one day writing my own story, but writing flows from me.

I know it won't be easy, and I have yet to refine exactly what I want to do, but as long as I am writing, I'll be happy.  I'm not in it for the money or fame, but the joy of being able to express myself through art and writing, like so many talented individuals before me have.

I will be keeping on with my-designers, writing for them as long as they'll have me, so feel free to take a gander at their online store.  They are a great bunch and fantastic to work with.  I will try to do the monthly newsletters for as long as I can, for those that expressed interest in receiving it.  I will also occasionally be posting pictures and the odd post on here, but I will be sure to advertise anything new.

So, farewell, noobs, one-and-all, and one day in the future I will have much to share with you.  Until then, chase your dreams, take chances, and be yourself.  Or as I like to say, f*ck them and do your thing :)
