I'm Done

Hey everyone in the knex community, I have come to say that this message isn't pleasant. I am done with building knex guns now. I have focused more on real life and I am planning to join the military. I want to serve my country for a few years after 1 year of college. I don't want to play with knex or toys anymore, and I will focus on more important things. 
So, thank you all for your consideration, especially my subscribers. You are all great people.
After some time, you won't see new CODawesome knex guns.
i know that I am not a popular instructables user, and I know that many people will be like "ugh, no one cares!" 
This is a message for all to those who supported me in the past.
Well, goodbye knex guns.

No no, that is not what he meant. XD
lol I get it just saying never too old for K'nex or fun or hobbies or whatever
I know, I was just teasing you. BTW, what are these new "indoor K'NEX war guns" that you are working one? PM me or something. =D

*sigh* Don't fool yourself. This is a common teen thing. Once you actually reach college, you take another step toward "true" maturity. Even then, we're still making steps. But in college, you'll see that no one cares anymore what you do. Your hobbies are your own. We have a bunch of geeks up here on the couches that play magic, watch anime, etc. My group of friends, we all plan on getting Pokemon X and Y. I still K'nex. But then I also have "mature" (lol) hobbies such as airsoft, biking, and programming. I may not build something for long periods of a time, but I -know- that I'm going to want to build something eventually. I'd wager it happens to almost every single K'nexer. They say they want to quit but then eventually, sooner or later, they suffer from withdrawals. Don't think you're going to quit. Don't become a tool of society who thinks we are all cookies from a cutter. Live how you want.
This is exactly what I would have said TD. Don't come to conclusions too quickly. Just because you feel like K'NEX are a kid thing, and just because you want to grow-up, doesn't mean that you HAVE to stop K'NEXing. And, feelings pass. Everybody feels at one point or another that they would like to quit a hobby, but the feeling will pass. Don't just to conclusions to quickly.
Keep in mind that i am not being 'forced' to quit. I've been thinking for a couple weeks about quitting and focusing on other fun hobbies, like airsoft, sports, and making my own guitar riffs, because i am growing up, and i tend to like these fun hobbies MORE than knex guns. But it's nice knowing you, man. I will be off this site after i post instructions of my semi auto MP5K, because people want to see it.
This I understand, but I am just suggesting that you not jump to conclusions. =D
*jump, not just...
