Sorry for being absent for so long, but without going into detail, my life has gotten a bit hectic recently, and I haven't really had the time for nationstates. I won't have much time for the foreseeable future either. You can consider this my "goodbye post". Alas, at such an exciting time for our young region as well! Oh well. Though it goes without saying, I'm withdrawing from councilman elections as well. However, If I return to Nationstates, I would like to come back to Dux Milan. It's been wonderfully accommodating so far, and I really like the region. I hope that rather then being removed, Gaed can be put on hiatus, in case of my eventual return. I'll check back when I can on these forums, but I don't think I can participate in more active threads and discussions. Good luck to you all.
