I'm gonna make this quick.

Tankmas ADVENTure 2020by GeoKureliOpen a new gift every day in this spirited Newgrounds Advent Calendar!
2 - I'm taking a long break.
No, not immediately. Around January, I might.
Finally, to the important news. Where do I start?
Look, first of all, it's not because I've been working on a big important project, or that I'm occupied in something else... listen. Listen very closely. I don't feel like myself anymore.
This isn't a joke, this is serious. I no longer feel like myself. I feel like I've changed for the worse. I noticed I've turned into a toxic person, and I might have been a bad influence even. I've set aside all the important things in life... and what for?
What for, indeed.
I wasted time trying to impress this site. Yes, I wasted my time and effort into trying to be one of the best, or to be recognized as one of the best. Why? Because I'm a lonely kid. I don't have that much self-esteem, and seeing you compliment my work makes me smile. It's weird, and to some it's understandable. But I hate it.
I don't hate Newgrounds, no. I love this site. I've met many wonderful people and even made friends with some of them. But it's time for me to calm down a bit, pull the brakes, hold the horses. Listen to me. I've gained an online following before I gained proper self-awareness.
After talking to some friends of mine, I decided to take a break. I don't know for how long, but I am gonna be under a hiatus. You might find me in the BBS, or talking in the Newgrounds Discord server, and that's fine. But I'm not gonna be uploading major art pieces, or joining anything big. I need to take time to recollect.
I hope you respect my decisions. I just need to take a break, that's all.
Merry Christmas by the way, and I hope this year ends sooner.
