If there’s something I learnt through the whole five years I watched dramas, it’s that you really can’t force yourself into dramas’ mood. It just doesn’t work that way.
It’s kind of surprising because through the first four years, I never even considered going through a slump. Yes, I went a little slow at times. Yes, I spent days and even weeks not watching anything but I eventually came back.
For some unknown reason, ever since the major slump I had last year, I find it especially hard to push myself back into dramas. I tried all methods and ways to actually go back to my previous rhythm but it never worked.
It’s not that I don’t enjoy dramas anymore. I did love Bad Boys and several others but I couldn’t find the will to watch something new. I jump at bits and pieces watching this and that but it’s only a short phase. I would eventually go back to the loathsome feeling of being fed up.
In short, I lost passion for dramas.
It’s a big issue when picking and watching a drama becomes an obligation instead of a divertissement method.
As a result, that keeps me from coming to MDL. It’s hard to be around here on a regular basis when I am not watching anything. But I wanted to let you all know that I would never forget how dear this place is to me. So here’s my shout-out for all of you.
For the amazing three years I spent here.
For the awesome people who made this place and gave me the privilege to be one of those who run it.
For my most dear loyal friends.
For the worried private messages and heart-warming words.
For the incredible think-alike peers I met here.
For the wonderful friendships around the whole globe.
For those who left and those who joined.
For real friends and for hypocrites too.
For the encouraging messages and for the accusing tones.
For those who befriended me and those who deleted me.
For those who talked to me and those who talked behind my back (didn’t anyone teach you that it’s wrong? Bad kitten! Bad! Say it to my face if you have some courage).
For being childish and for being mature.
For those who come off soft and those who come off strong.
For the misunderstandings. For the controversies. For hate. For pure venom.
But most of all it’s for understanding. For courtesy. For politeness. For shared feelings. For mutual respect.
For dramas. For films. For mind-blowing scripts. For genius directors. For brilliant screenwriters. For mesmerising actors.
For firsts and for lasts. For heaviness and for cheesiness. For gore and for rom-coms too.
For those who care. As for those who don’t, well, they can simply turn a blind eye or whatever.
Thank you for this unforgettable experience. I will hold it to heart.
P.S. This is not a goodbye speech by any mean. I am lurking around. I just wanted to let you all know that I am still alive. And I miss it around here.
Excuse my overdramatic statements. I could be under the effect of heavy medication when I wrote this.
