So…I’ve made a decision.
I’m going back to school in the fall and I need to be super focused this time. I can’t fail this time around and to avoid that, all of my time and attention needs to be on my schoolwork. That being said, I won’t be updating this blog anymore. Honestly, I’ve felt myself growing more and more distant from The Maine for the past couple of months. I still love their music and intend to buy and enjoy every single album they release but I’m out of that “fangirl” stage and clearly it’s showing in the way that I’ve been running (or not running) the blog these past months.
One of the things that has turned me off from the fanbase and this site itself is how everything is turning into such a fucking competition among the fans. “I’ve seen the band waaaay more times than you; I’ve been with them since the day their EP came out so I’m a better fan that you; you’re NOT a real fan because you’ve only liked them since Black and White” and so on and so forth. I understand that not everyone is like this, but a good majority of the fanbase is and I’m just tired of it. I’m just done with the spazzing out over new tattoos, new haircuts, rumored girlfriends, new clothes, “he’s so hot omg,”etc. I’m just…done. I’m ready to just enjoy The Maine all by myself again.
For those of you wondering, I’m still going to be updating the story, just not on this site. You can find the story on my mibba which I will link below.
If you’re crazy enough to still want to know what’s going on with me, please feel free to follow my tumblr, twitter, and instagram. I will provide all links below.
I’ve had a great run on this blog and I’ve made so many friends because of it, but I just…grew out of it. I thank every single person who has followed me, whether they have stayed until the end or left after a while (I know I can be annoying sometimes) and just know that I will miss you and hope you come visit me on my other social networking sites.
And just remember: Just because a band hasn’t necessarily saved your life doesn’t mean that you love them any less that anyone else. Never let anyone make you feel like any less of a fan just because you can’t go to a show or afford a tshirt the band is selling. Your love for them is in your heart, and I don’t want you to let anyone make you question that love by making you feel inferior because you haven’t been there “from the beginning.” Oh, and it’s ok if “Into Your Arms” is your favorite Maine song. Like, fucking really? It’s popular for a reason.
Be safe out there, stay in school, and love with all your heart.
I love you with all of mine.
Farewell for now
