Just a student practicing art while I learn about the world. I have a passion for writing and stories, so a lot of what I produce is centered around characters of mine or friends and stories.
I like virbrant colors, as well as dark themes. I love meeting new artists and sharing tips.

Please stop by and say hi! I'd love to meet you. :)

Long Time, No See

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 4, 2013, 3:12 PM

I'm not dead yet. I swear it.

Basically that's it though. >.>;

Haha, it's been so long since I've made a journal on dA! So I guess I'll just go over what's going on, or has been going on.

I haven't been very active lately... clearly. :I

This last year has been really great for me. I finished my Spanish minor in school, and I'm only one year away from getting my major, which is super exciting, and time consuming.

Also I managed to land this great job last year, which has been keeping me busy ever since. 

All in all it's been a lot to keep up with.
These last couple of months my life has pretty much been classes, work, homework, and maybe sleep. XDD; 

In reality though, it's been pretty tough. I had a lot of goals set for this year that I've had to push back, I haven't really had any time to do art, or even really to write, which is what I usually do to de-stress. Unfortunately, this somehow also managed to push DeviantArt out of my life, which hasn't really happened to before. I don't think I've ever been absent for so long! (500+ messages when I came back. ;A; ) I'm really trying hard to work a place for it back in my life, but it might be a little longer before I can be regularly active here again. 

(I'm now taking summer classes, which is fun! But also not exactly what I had planned to be doing this summer.)

So, I know I have a lot of stuff to do, and I swear that I'm slowly trying to keep up with it. My "free-time" has a bad habit of being eaten by my work. =_=;

First the Paradox Tournament! (To those who would be interested: I SO want it done by the end of this month. So you'll at least see something.)

Then on to any commissions, prizes, and art trades. And maybe a little something for myself here and there. :)

So there you have it! I disappeared, but I'm back now, at least for a while. :)
Please ask me anything! I'll answer as fast as I can. I try to check every day, but I usually manage every other. And thanks to those who took the time to read all of that. <3

On another note, since I caved and bought a sub, I'm thinking about changing my username. Any opinions on that?

Hi there you've been hugged
Send one to all your friends who you think deserve a hug (which, hopefully includes the person who sent it to you)!!

You might send it to your enemies as well! It'll really make them stop and think!!!

If you don't receive this back, nobody likes you, and they wish you'd stop bugging them!

If you receive this back 1 time, open up! Find more friends, enemies, or enemies pretending to be friends

If you receive this back 2 times, you're off to a good start! (Unless you sent it to yourself! That's cheating!)

If you receive this back 3 times, you're a good friend.

If you receive this back 4 times, you're truly loved as a friend!!
