I'm going to be honest - I have no clue what to write here. This issue has been an ORDEAL to get through. I think we started roughly this time last year, with the prospect of releasing a new edition quarterly. And it almost didn't happen. But I'm stubborn. It's a gift and a curse. So here we are. Finally. I have really enjoyed working with all of you, as a manager and a designer and a team mate. It's awesome being surrounded by so many talented and passionate people, and I know you're all going to achieve great things! That said, this is the last issue I'll be taking part in for the forseeable future while I focus on my work and studies, but I hope to see Soliloquie continue in someone else's hands. I was hoping Gracie would be able to write an editor's letter as well, but this exerpt from our conversation will have to do for now:

April 1st, 2019 i think it's been a solid six months hasn't it? i can't even begin to tell you how many drafts i have saved trying to reach out, but the longer it got, the harder it got. obviously i deserve a beating, so i'm not even going to waste meaningless sorry's anymore. i can't even begin to tell you how relieved i was. i had no idea how i was going to even open discord and clean up the mess of my absence, so the fact that the responsibility had been transferred to someone else, in the most selfish way, allowed me to breathe a little. i was heartbroken that i had been stupid enough to cause you to leave, cause you any trouble. i don't know where this leaves us. i really want this magazine to continue, but i've been pretty reckless, and my personal problems have no right to impede on someone else's. i really don't even want to think about the amount of talented people i have lost. so, i don't know. i can understand any outcome. no matter what it is. I hope you're proud of us, Gracie, because we wouldn't exist without you.. I hope soliloquie has a future. But most of all I hope everyone can all be proud of what we've achieved. Happy reading and best wishes,

acting editor-in-chief
