Loss of interest :(
« on: December 13, 2016, 05:26:35 pm »
Look, I hate to say it but now, getting out my K'nex and making something really feels like a chore. I've been doing K'nex for as long as I remember, much longer than I've been on 'Ibles or here or around the commununity, and I know lots of you have had K'nex longer, but I feel it's near the end of my time for it. I reckon the something I've been planning with someone else (will be a while before it's even started though) is likely to be my last build. I also haven't actually done anything here in terms of moderation and feel someone else would be better off taking over.
Other interests have taken over, and since I will be doing my GCSE's next year school has gotten pretty intense, reducing my time for K'nex. When I joined 'Ibles and here I wanted to make a big difference and expected to forever love K'nex, but I'm afraid that's not the case.
So, it's not a goodbye yet, it's just...a sort of explanation to why I've not made anything  :(
You people are awesome and I hope you revive K'nex :)

Hey Linkin, that's a shame to read. But I think it will come back when you get a little older. Store up your knex, but don't sell it please! I think because you loved it so much in the last years, you will love it in some years from now, when you suddenly see the box.
Will you stick around on the forum some times? :) Would be nice!

Don't worry I won't be selling it any time soon :) And I'll definitely stay here!

I feel like the same thing is happening to me. School and other stuff is taking over my life, and I don't find much time to do much of anything else. It's a real bummer, but I think everybody goes through that same situation at one time or another. I hope k'nex doesn't die...that would be really sad. :(
Quick, think of a signature! Insert it here:_________.
Thanks, that's my signature.

Take a break, in a few months you'll probably be full of ideas and motivation to build! :D

Don't try to make a difference right away ... Let you some time ... We can also make a difference all together.
But it's not my choice ...  :'(
Hope to see you again  :-\

It's the 'forever love k'nex' that isn't the case. Not particularly bothered about making a big difference tbh. But thanks anyway:)
