As expected, I got the boot tonight from LJ Idol.

Thanks to everyone who supported me throughout this, and special thanks to my partner this past week kenakeri.

But I'm glad I'm out. It's taken up a lot of time. And though kenakeri has been a fine partner, I don't like tying my fate to another contestant and vice versa. It's one thing in a regular reality show, especially those that focus on skills that require dealing with others (for example, Project Runway). But journaling is a very personal endeavor and it's hard enough to find words on a specific topic week after week and put forth your best.

This week I did not put forth my best. I know that. I really struggled. I hadn't taken a bye before and I really felt a need this week when it was unavailable.

I'm also glad to be out because the topics for this week are the same ones I struggled with last week, that I had written about already once before, and now contestants must pair up in different groups. I realize it's a game, and this piece of it is just the game part. But I really don't like it. If I hadn't been voted off, I might have dropped out this week anyway simply because of it, not as a protest, but just because I would find it to be less fun. I'm not sure.

Anyway, I won't be following it or doing the home game or anything and I sincerely doubt I will participate in the future. It's not sour grapes or anything. It just got a bit overwhelming. There are so many entrants, so much to read. It was good for what I intended it for - meeting new interesting people (I have many new LJ friends now that I hope will stick with me) and it spurred on my writing.

I'm glad I did it. Good luck to all the contestants.

I'm sorry to see you go - I voted. But I can understand about it being overwhelming, I've found this season very overwhelming too.

Well, if it wasn't for Idol I wouldn't have met you and rosepurr. So good things happen. I'm sorry you got eliminated but I can understand the relief. I am not happy about the topics again this week but I guess I'll make the best of it. Hugs to both of you. See ya around the friends list!
