I will be away from Swap-Bot for a while. I had fun but it is no longer a priority of mine. I had sent out my last couple of swaps, cleared off my queue and, after rating my last few when I get them, I don't know when I will return. I have so much on my plate right now with moving, NaNoWriMo coming up in November, then the holidays. Anyways, thank you to those of you who enjoyed swapping with me. To those of you I have been pen-palling with, I'd love to hear from you as it seems my 5 pen pals have stopped writing and I would like to carry on. To the others, have a good time. I'll see you again, I'm sure. Thank you for your understanding.
Came to Swap Bot after my friend Althena kept talking about all the coolness she participates in on here.
