1. Wow. Never did I think I'd love an app so much.
    And never did I think I'd love people that I've never met. I'm sorry if I never really showed that too well.
  2. The truth is that it's so hard for me to reach out and make friends, I guess even online.
    I know I didn't become close with too many people because of that reason, but I'd like to say thank you to those of you who reached out to me too. Please know you have become some of my favorite people in the whole world.
  3. But even if we didn't become the best of friends, I love so many people on here. I've learned so much on this app. So much about so many things.
    I've laughed until I cried countless times. I've smiled and celebrated the sweet, small, or very important joys of your lives. I've seriously woken up socially and become very aware of the terrible way our world operates sometimes. My heart has hurt with so many of you while reading about things you've been going through. I've related to so many things that have been shared.
  4. But I've especially learned so much about myself here.
    I've learned to appreciate myself more than I have in a long time. I've learned to have more than zero confidence in myself. I've learned that I'm not the only one who feels the things that I feel, and that I shouldn't feel broken for feeling those things. I've learned that someone will always care. I've been more open here than with anyone else. I'll always struggle with these things, but List helped me see that there are so many beautiful people in this world, including myself.
  5. I haven't updated this app in nearly a year. I loved it the way it was when I first arrived in October of 2015 and I wanted to hold on to that as much as I could. I'm stubborn and I don't like change. So I still have drafts.
    And in those drafts, I've shared thoughts— mostly my endless feelings. I don't want those thoughts to disappear forever, so I'm gonna try to share some of those over the next few days, actually share them. I've also got a few list requests to post.
  6. Thank you to everyone here for creating this unforgettable community.
    PS. I'm @celestestelle everywhere else. Find me if you'd like. ❤️❤️❤️
  7. 250 lists later and I'm officially done with my last list.
    Total. Not within the past 24 hours, though sorry if it has felt like that many with everything I've posted since yesterday! Thanks for reading. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for being a part of this place with me, even if I was maybe only a small part. I'll get to any comments on these recent lists and do a ton of reminiscing tomorrow 😢❤️
