Getting Caught up

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 18, 2014, 9:26 AM
My apologies for letting my DD suggestions sit basically unacknowledged for 2 weeks ^^;  I have replied to all self suggestions now and have also set DDs up until the 24th.  I had a lot of great suggestions in there (some of which had already been DDed by either alexandrasalas or Ry-Spirit by the time I got to them :lol: ).  So thank you to everyone who keeps suggesting; keep up the great work =D

So some life updates: I am moving to another city at the end of the month and when I haven't been working 10 hour shifts, I have been frantically apartment hunting, going out of town to view apartments and cleaning mine so others can view it.  I am also down to my last week of online courses; 2 more assignments to go! 

I did quit my call center job since a) I'm moving 2 hours or so drive away and b) I hated the work, so that does give me a bit more time on my hands.  I hope to be around more when I am not packing or doing school work :lol:  I am waiting to hear back about a 2 bedroom apartment (SpiritLullaby and I agreed that we need a separate art/office/costume making room XD) with a balcony.  There's no reason for us not to get the apartment, but I always worry until I get confirmation XD  Regardless, we move May 1st so we might have some internet away time between now and getting settled.

I do hope to be on a bit more in May and to breathe some life back into a couple of old projects and hopefully start some new ones =)

Sorry guys, but it's crunch time.  I have 2 papers to go and I work full time and I need to get my apartment cleaned up for Monday so that it is fit for people to view it.  Also trying to find a place to live in another city ^^;  Hoping to get everything calmed down again in the next couple of weeks, but realistically, it'll be May before things are settled XD

Back-ish + Vday DDs

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 7, 2014, 11:09 AM
Getting life sorted, slowly but surely.  Things did in fact get worse, but they are getting better (I hate vague posting like this but it is rather personal ^^; ).  I have gotten through all of my DD suggestions and set some DDs for the next couple of days =)  I still won't be answering self suggestion notes though; work and classes are keeping me super busy so I'd rather give no answer than a half assed critique ^^;

And on that topic, I would love, love LOVE it if you guys would send me some romantic themed Fan Art for a Valentine's Day DD =D  I am not big on Valentines, as my waifu SpiritLullaby will attest, but I rarely set romantic DDs.  So I figured this would be a good occasion for something different =)

Remember that all of the usual DD suggestion rules on my page apply ;)

Hiatus?

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 20, 2014, 9:10 AM
I feel like I've been on break more often than not this past year.  It's not a  good feeling but, here I am.

I'm going to be around less than usual for the foreseeable future and there will likely come a time where I drop off the face of the internet for a couple of days.  For the next little while I will not be giving critiques on DD Self Suggestions, for which I apologize.  I AM still accepting DD suggestions, I just will not be responding to any of them for a little while.

In the good news, I just started 4 online courses and I expect to do well in them (as long as financial aid kicks in soon; still short one textbook that I need for 50% of my assignments).  I've also been hired at a local call center and start that in one week.  I'll be working nights for the first little while so that will be interesting.

The bad stuff I cannot really talk about in public as requested by the people involved, but suffice it to say that my family is going through a hard time that will get harder before it gets easier.  I'm not handling it well; I'm very anxious, unfocused, I want to bolt at the tiniest upset and I'm depressed.  I have minimal motivation and it takes a lot of will power to do the simple things but I feel guilty when I don't do them.  I think I need some space to just be for a while, until all of this comes to a close.

Thank you for understanding :hug:

Personal Entry/To-do list

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 6, 2014, 1:11 PM
So I think things have finally actually quieted down in my life for the moment.  The holidays were not that hectic, I was just sick through most of them.  Still not over this damn cold though =(  Hoping it'll be gone soon.  Now that my tech problem is sorted out, that's one step in the right direction though.

I start part time classes next week, yet still don't have access to my classes so this will be interesting.  I have been approved for financial aid but until my fees are paid I can't access anything of use so it's rather bizarre.  I don't have books right now since I can't find the titles anywhere so I really hope they get their shit together soon =/

Goals for this week are as follows:
CV Secret Santa - I have it sketched, just need to line and colour.
Get sketches for Sariah-Loire's commission done.  Hopefully by Friday.
Get sketch for the FE Secret Santa done.  Hopefully by Sunday.
Edit at least 3 more chapters of my NaNoWriMo novel.  It needs it.
Get first CSS done for Journal Skin January.  Try not to cry because stash hates me these past couple of days.

Back to our regular schedule... next week

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 21, 2013, 7:25 PM
My mother was nice enough to finance a new laptop for me for Christmas this year and it arrived early :la:  I'm getting all my programs set up again and I'll be working to get Secret Santa stuff in on time.  Fan Art Fridays will resume next week, I hope =)  A Fan Art Gallery Newsletter will be posted in the near future as well.

In the mean time I'll be getting myself organized and active again =)

I did make some point commission purchases; thanks for everyone who made recommendations =3  I still have some points but I think I'll save them and do another round of commissioning after the holidays.

And on that note: I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday =D

Looking to point commission

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 17, 2013, 8:14 AM
Through the generosity of friends and commission work I have done this year, I have racked up a lot of points. And I am looking to get some commission work done =)  I have looked through those I watch and a lot of people are closed right now, so I would love to get some recommendations!

So if you or anyone you know takes points as payment for human/humanoid character commissions, please link me below.  Looking for good quality, so don't worry about higher prices :nod:  (I would actually prefer to see prices in the hundreds or 1000+ range!)

Probably should specify that I'm not really looking for chibis/super cute style.  Cute just isn't my thing ^^;

Computer problems: Edit2

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 4, 2013, 2:35 PM
Edit2: Hard drive crashed. 

Edit: A local business only charged me 35$ with taxes for the data recovery so I have my novel back :dummy:  I am currently reformatting my good laptop and reinstalling the OS.  This could take hours, Toshiba tech support said (exact words: "go eat a snack and watch a movie").  So still have some tinkering to do ^^;  Thanks for all of the ideas, tutorials and support, especially kingmancheng and Reaper-X =)

So my screen was fixed for all of November before my laptop gave me a boot error and killed itself.  Now this is an easy fix!  ....If I want to lose all of my data.  Including my novel.  Which I last backed up at 12 000 words.  Which I was about to back up when my laptop died -.-;  So I'm looking into data recovery options.  Just removing the hard drive and transferring data is sounding more difficult as I would have to re-use said hard drive to make the laptop function. 

So I'm currently deciding if it's worth dropping $80 and taking the risk that the file can't be recovered (and being out 80$ either way) for data recovery at a computer store.  Or if I should just let go of the file.

My hotmail/outlook e-mail was also hacked, so apologies for any spam.  I'm thinking the boot error on my computer might be the result of a virus and if so, there might be a connection.  So please do not open e-mails from that account sent in the past 24 hours.


My dA presence will be limited until this is sorted. 

50K

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 29, 2013, 2:00 PM
Just hit the 50K word mark.  Still have a ways to go for this to be finished but I'll keep at it (probably only need another week or two). 

Thank you everyone for your support this month :hug:  And go congratulate Exillior for reaching 50k words as well!
