Wow, it really seems like I haven't been spending hardly any time around here anymore, I think that new layout and everything and all the watches I've failed to catch up are starting to wear me down a little bit. I mean I have close to 9k messages from new submissions to notes and comments still pending and I'll never get through them all at this point XD But that being said, I will keep an eye on things, I am still an active watcher and I'm always ready to reply to a message as soon as I get it. DA will always be a place I drop in on, that'll never change.DEVELOPMENTS
So I've seen the advisor I changed my major and I submitted my appeal and FASFA form to the Financial Aid office. Now it's just a matter of finishing the online orientation and waiting to hear back about my state aid status. Class starts on January 5th and I'll begin my pursuit of a degree in Graphics and Web Design. Yeah, I know it's a very popular these days, but I think I can find SOME work for it, not to mention I had a lotta fun with it when I did it in high school. It's a big step and a long overdue one. I backed outta college when I was 18, I'm going on almost 30 now and it's time to get my ass in gear.ARTZ
That being said, I would really REALLY like to get a book written and published before the big 3-0 rolls around, I should have had one on shelves LONG before now, but I guess I'm still kinda not so confident/happy with my work and I'm invested a lot more in roleplays with my friends (which isn't a bad thing) and it kinda directs my creative flow into those projects. I also hope to get some more pixels done too and submit them out here as well as dust off my tablet and practice with it a bit. With any luck, even if I don't pick up any professional technique, I'll work out some style unique to me that I enjoy enough to keep trying.FOUND
I discovered a new online comic that I really enjoy and would like to recommend. If you like it, you can always donate and keep it going. The art looks great and the story and ideas are very interesting. It's called Miamaska: www.miamaska.com/index.php?pn=…
It's not a long read, there's only about six chapters in it right now and they're not very long, but it's enough to pique some interest, I think.CLOSING
I think that sums it all up here, for now, I'll try to get more regular updates on things as they come and hopefully I'll have a few new things to submit soon. Take it easy everyone!
