I know what you went through, it's happened to me. You come to a point when something is just unbearable... you've nothing to apologize for, mate. If you felt like leaving, it's up to you! If you want to rejoin the RP, hit me up on skype, and we talk about it.
I've been great, man, about to take the exams which will get me into that fine arts school, so this stage of my life is pretty important... but I manage AoH as well. I guess my summer is two sided: drawing (in the lessons) and writing/thinking about AoH. If you ever wondered why I'm so dedicated to it, the reason is that I've nothing else to focus on besides drawing... xD
