It’s the name of the last episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. It’s also the name of my last post.
I’ve thought about this a lot. Finally, I understand what I’ve been feeling when it comes to my blog. It’s time for it to come to an end.
A lot has happened over the last 2 years. I look at old posts and see how much I’ve changed, how much I’ve been through, and how different things are. I am a very different person from the one that stepped foot on Carnegie Mellon’s campus in August, 2013. This blog has been a kind of relief for me. I’ve used it to express my thoughts and feelings when I could not verbalize them, to share my experiences with people who have not had them, and to share my writings when I couldn’t keep them to myself anymore.
Right now, I’m in a place where I’m comfortable with myself. I don’t need or want to blog anymore.
It’s time to let go.
I’m not going to erase this blog from the internet or anything. I’m going to leave it where it is, the way it is. Maybe the future will read it and it’ll become some kind of important thing. Probably not, but you never know.
My name is Gates Palissery, and this was a record of my inner thoughts and feelings. I have Bipolar I Disorder, but I’m not going to let it get to me. Giving up is not an option. Even though I’m not posting anymore, I will always be available to anyone who needs help or wants to talk or hear a story or feel a connection with another human being or whatever. Just look me up.
