*holds a cute pen up, yellow with a teddy bear-shaped rubber at its rear, while a sparkly background engages all around her; she smiles, and gently presses the tip of her pen onto a cutely fashioned letter sheet; she starts writing*
"To all my dear friends and the people who want to contact me...
*suddenly, huge waves splash behind her as her expression grows intense and a daring grin washes over her face; she exclames in a loud, half-heartedly apologetic voice*
"Aaaah, what to say?! Well, life's happen'd. And y'know, times like that stuffs happens and people havta move on, yaro? Hence, I want to tell everyone "sorry" for taking forever with my replies to y'all."
*the pirate gets knocked on the head with a fist of a more formal-looking version of herself that suddenly appeared behind her; the new character grabs the pen, bumps the pirate out of the chair and starts writing while mumbling irritably to the side - "Be more polite when apologising!":*
"First off my dear friends,
I am sorry for not replying to your comments in quite a long while (I imagine the newest was a week ago, and the oldest one can even be from half a year ago, I hope it's not more than that). I feel that "I have been busy" cannot hold the amount of apologetic feelings that I feel towards you. I also know that I owe you at least an explanation.
I am 19 years old. Life has just started happening as I have reached a steady phase of youth where I don't have to pay too much mind to the hormonal changes on my face that kids would laugh over and stuff like that. I feel quite inspired to make something out of my life now when I feel like I have the opportunity to fly, and have a legitimate (Pirate: Oho, not "legit?") excuse for all those grown-ups who say that I should pick a safe road in life. I say, 'Live and try to follow your dreams while you're still young and able - you won't stop thinking about it anyways'.
*kahem* So, in accordance to that, I have decided to go bravely after what I want to do and all the things I believe in. Thanks to that, my online social life has suffered quite a blow, while my social life in the physical world has not changed significantly, so fret not, I have not moved on entirely.
I will see your posts and comments that you leave for me quite fast, but it might take me forever a long time to reply unless you say that you really want me to contact you soon. In that case, my conscience would not let me sleep. So yes, please do not do that if at all possible."
*holds the pen up with no idea how to close the letter off; her face shows a blank expression; the pirate grins deviously*
*with a gasp of realisation (after re-reading the letter), she continues heartily*
Second of all, to all the people who wish to contact me,
I am guessing that you have pretty much understood that I might take a long time to reply to your messages. But, the thing is, it is generally easier for me to make friends than keep them, so it just might happen sooner.
BUT TO MY FRIENDS,
I am really trying to give your messages a priority. *fretting over it* In fact, uhm, ah, I--
*you have reached the limit of your letter; please contact your operator for more information on how to leave more effective apologies*
