Been a while since I've really posted a big update, so if anyone bothers reading all this, here you go! - Some of you may have noticed I posted a couple things in the past about missing a person. Well it was a person I knew online for a very long time, Ryan, and we finally met in person last year in February, then visited a few times after that, and now we've been living together for almost half a year! It's been amazing! <3 - About to take a trip in 2 days to Texas with him actually to visit his family again, can't wait to see Dallas again! - PS3 died a couple weeks ago, YLOD due to broken soldering on cpu, can't afford the reballing and don't wanna waste the time on a heat treatment since it's so temporary. RIP you brave soul. - Starting a new computer build with Ryan, this one is going to be specifically for him and later on we're gonna work on mine. - Working on some game design stuff for a few games, getting back into texturing and modeling - Got a dog! Sort of. Kind of inherited her? Might be getting a second dog soon c:
Yeah so after like what, 5 or 6 years of this bs I'm gonna just build a PC, gotta love the portability of a laptop but I'm not fond of the constant overheating and dinky little PSU and GPU issues. Hhhhhhhhh I'm gonna go so broke.
Bleh, hell of a month. Haven't really talked much about it but now I somewhat need to vent.
Basically, the past few weeks in a nutshell: Parents' divorce is getting messy, my dad is just losing it or something and acting like a complete ass, I don't even know. He also took most of our money and the state won't do anything about it for a while so we're basically broke for the time being. I'm only on the internet right now because my mom managed to work out some deals with our utilities and such for a lower price due to our situation, but I might not be for long. My dog got horribly sick a couple of days ago and now even though she seems fine, if she gets hyper she has the possibility of just keeling over, apparently. And I failed like my past 3 math tests. Even the little things. I made these badass looking Daft Punk headphones, and then about a week later, the jack on it breaks and the audio keeps shifting from one ear to another. Then my Walkman just decided to corrupt it's memory so now for some reason I now only have like 4 usable gigs on my 8 gig Walkman. My laptop keeps doing weird shit, too, I'm pretty sure it has another virus. Oh, and I also probably need to get glasses in the next few weeks, my vision is getting kinda bad, mainly in my left eye. *bleep*ing fantastic. Glasses and Braces. As if I wasn't already iffy about self-confidence.
Fantastic month, right?
On the upside, I'm finally getting a cell phone, because our family cell phone plan is giving me one free since my dad obviously dropped out of our "family" plan.
I have like, the worst case of... I don't know. The opposite of Writer's Block. Rather than the lack of feeling to write and incredible amount of ideas (which I forget quickly :U), which I've had for the past year or so, I now have the opposite. Now I have absolutely no ideas and I feel like if I don't write something in the next week or so, I'll just explode or something. I don't even know.
So it's my boyfriend's birthday on the 20th, which is also the exact day of our 6 month anniversary. For my birthday he got me an art commission. I wanted to do the same with the same artist for his birthday. So I messaged this artist like a week before the 20th, she said she'd be fine doing it and stuff. Then she just vanished from existence. She doesn't have the commission info, the reference pictures for the characters, or anything, so I doubt she's drawing. But what am I going to do? It's the 19th and the person I was getting his birthday gift from just disappeared off the face of the earth. ._.
Yeah more inactivity. Woo. Might start being active during the summer, don't really know yet.
Couple things recently. Well, not THAT recently, but, y'know, within like the past 6 months.
Been trying my hand at drawing. I've been kind of learning as I go, going back and forth between digital and traditional. When it's digital, I almost always use Flash, as I just like the interface and line editing features. I have been trying to get into a program called Paint Tool SAI lately, too. Seems like a good program but it also seems to be designed for tablets rather than a wireless mouse and laptop touchpad. I have been looking for tablets, though, and I've found the perfect one I want. A Wacom Cintiq 12Wx. Has a screen, just like what I want, but it's also $999. So... yeah. I don't think I'm going to link my DeviantArt page here though due to my... change in art style over the past year or so. *cough*Furry*cough*.
Also, recently, and by that I mean like today, I've been trying music composition. Not like a good ol' garage band, I mean digital. Drum and Bass, if you will. Can't say I'm good as well, I haven't even tried it yet. I've just been coming up with note ideas while helplessly trying to find a good open-source audio program that lives up to the demo of Acid Pro 7 that I once used at school. Out of boredom I also came up with 4 album names, ~40 song names, and album art for each. Though I can't say they'll be any use until I actually make something, and make it worth uploading.
On another note, a friend of mine bought me Bioshock on Steam :D DEARGAWD I LOVE IT <3 And I'm barely two levels in.
Sorry I haven't been all too active lately, guys. Just been somewhat busy. School and such. Been learning how to model, skin, map, and code for videos games, at the moment my focus is on skinning models for Garrys Mod. Going to more onto Lua coding or Garry's Mod next.
Mainly I've been on Skype and Steam, I've just completely lost interest in forums for a bit.
If you wish to contact me, though, here is my Steam and Skype ID.

Yeah, I know, Skype name is spelled wrong. I'm a derp. :I
