Hey guys, I'm setting up for a major friends cut and I wanted to forewarn people.

This is nothing personal: I love all of you. Lately, though, my life has gotten so hectic with work, trying desperately to get back on track with online classes, thinking about freelance web design again to pull in some extra money -- and even, potentially, smashing things like "art" and "writing" into my schedule, haha -- that even opening my flist can be daunting, emotionally, much less posting.

I have a tendency to friend everyone with even remotely similar interests to me. And this has ended up with a lot of great friends who I wouldn't have otherwise met, and again, I love all of you. But I need to pare things down. I was seriously considering making an entirely new journal or deleting this thing for a while, but so much of my life is here and I hope I'm not offending anyone by making this decision - it really is for my own emotional health.

If you would like to stay, like reading my entries or writing, whatever -- please let me know in the comments. And I'm always around at twitter (@winged).

[Edit: Thank you guys! I'm just getting to my LJ at 2 in the morning, so it's hard to get to everyone to give hugs but I really do appreciate that people like having me around. Also, keeping this public in case I accidentally cut someone or something stupid. I'll post a "you're still on the island" type post tomorrow probably.]

I'd love to stay, since you are one of my few friends who likes Criminal Minds, but I'll understand if I get cut, no feelings hurt. :D

You can cut me, if you want. *poke* Not that I post enough to EVER MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

You are at work and I miss you particularly today because it is cold and I woke up at 4 in the morning. I love you so much! I hope your day goes well. I plan to made soup and warm bread and have a cozy evening with my loved ones since it is sickeningly damp and nasty this week.

A@#IOHT#!%!# <---- Me missing real weather. I wish it actually got cold here. Or rained.

Haha, you guys should come down and visit if the windy city's driving you mad though.

Sweetie, you have what I like to call a "job". I, unfortunately, do not. So I can't visit just yet. Maybe sometime next Spring or Summer? You should come see us for weather and then we can come visit for a break from it.

I do know what you mean about SoCal, though. The lack of weather drove me crazy the two months I lived there.

Do what you have to do, bb! Life is crazy and you need to be happy above all. ♥

I do enjoy reading about your new exciting life in Chicago. But more than anything take good care of yourself. You are one of a kind.

I've been absent from LJ a lot lately with the new job, but I still LJ-stalk my friends. I always enjoy our exchanges, and reading your thoughts, and hearing about your life - so I would really like to stay. :) Hope all's well with you...

I'm about to do totally the same thing so I understand where you're coming from. You gotta what you gotta do, although that being said even though I don't comment much I always do love reading your posts.

Well, I tend to think people should cut who they want to cut, but FWIW, I'd still like to read your entries.

Hey, uh, so I thought I had you friended. :( I'm really faily at this kind of thing. But I do like you and would like to stick around.

No problem! I'm glad you want to stay :)

I would like to stay your friend here : )

Since I pretty much love you.

I understand the overwhelming part, I am AWFUL about posting since it seems it is always doom and gloom. But I do read and look forward to your posts, no matter how rare they are.

Aw, I love you too! No worries, you're staying around :D!

Hey! We were both kind of MIA and not posting for a while (for totally valid RL reasons) and so I felt like we hadn't been talking -- but I like having you around too, I'll totally add you back! I'm glad you're back online :)

I'm still spotty with remembering to post, but I'm glad you came over to poke your head in.
