The curt hiatus announcement from a week ago was actually me trying to live without working on this website and seeing how it felt. I enjoyed not having movies on my brain 24/7. I haven’t looked at anything movie-related since that notice and it felt fucking great. No Twitter, no RSS, no movies whatsoever.
Getting ten days’ distance from the stress of last week also allowed me to relax enough to write this goodbye. I wish I could’ve exited more gracefully than this, but right now I’m looking forward to a future for myself that’s much less obsessed and overworked. It’s really a blessing in disguise. Now that I find it impossible to continue doing this website, it’s opened new doors in my life, freeing me up to do things I kept putting off because I never had time.
I’ve spent a lot of my break studying for a job, one that has nothing to do with movies and that I think I have a realistic chance of getting.
If you still want to use this website, the archive will remain online for a long time. I’m not planning on shutting it down any time soon.
Thank you for your time. Thank you for caring.
