Well...now I'm without a laptop...Yup, you heard right! My MacBook began to freeze about a week ago and I was unable to use any intensive software like iMovie or Photoshop. Then my charger decided to die and I had to wait five days until I could get a new one. Feeling hopeful, I allowed my laptop to charge overnight completely undisturbed until the following morning which is when I discovered that my computer doesn't work at all and loads to a white screen...More Like This
I tried resetting the PRAM and VRAM with no success and I also tried holding down control r in order to open it in safe mode or reinstall the OS...but to no avail. I'm pretty sure that it's a gpu or graphics card issue and my Apple Care expired in January...I am completely screwed. I guess my next step is to get my computer diagnosed at the Apple store and go from there. I am broke and know that replacing the gpu is going to be out of my price range so it may be a while before I can work on any art or continue my stories...sorry guys
Things Are Starting to Look Up!If you read my last journal entry then you heard the unfortunate news about my beloved MacBook. I was left without a way to work on my art or continue my stories, but that all changed yesterday afternoon!~More Like This
My uncle brought home a 2013 Gateway PC that his job had given him for free!!! Apparently they were about to throw it out and then their trash became our treasure! I quickly set it up for use as the new house computer and it works quite well I must say!
Of course I still need to get my laptop fixed, but this will have to do for the time being. I am able to do some art, but the work that I usually do is vore related and I can only work on it when I am alone since this computer is in the kitchen...
Hopefully my laptop will be repaired as soon as I get the funds to fix it and then you will be seeing more of me, I promise!!!

Twitter and Tumblr accountsAlright, I should have mentioned this before . . . but I have finally gotten a Twitter and Tumbler account. It was for my new media writing class but feel free to follow me on both if you want. I may say some things that may not make sense like one word or a link, but that is generally because of my new media class. There will generally be a #eng3307 following my tweet. Also, my other name for my tumblr blog is called "Mysteries in Literature" in which I write a blog on detective fiction.More Like This

Happy Holidays 2014Happy Christmas everyone! I got a stuffed ginger cat, a bendable Robin 1966 figurine, some Batman stamps in a frame to celebrate Batman's 75th anniversary, Batman Noel, a Sudoku calendar, some puzzle books, some Roosterteeth t-shirts, some clothes, some money, a book celebrating 75 years of Batman, some Grayson comics, and a Mustang calendar. I got a lot more stuff too, but I don't want to brag, although I hope I haven't already. I hope everyone got what they wanted this holiday! Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!!More Like This

Update on my HusbandFirst off, let me thank all of you who made comments and sent prayers and good wishes to me and Chris on my last journal, . I did not have the time to answer all of you individually, though I really wish I could have. You people are so special and kind to someone you have never met before and I can't tell you how much it meant to me.More Like This
But, now for the next chapter in this sad story.
The month of January and February have not been too wonderful for me. As many of you know my husband was diagnosed with lung cancer in February 2014 and went through chemotherapy and radiation therapy and was doing very well. He even had the month of December off, no treatments, no procedures, just some blood work and a port flush (for the chemotherapy, in his upper chest area). We had an appointment with the oncologist the first week of January to start the process of seeing if he could go to surgery to remove the lung tumor after all the treatment.
My deviantART StoryHi all.More Like This
Long time no update! I usually post on my art blog if you're interested in more recent stuff.
Anyhow, I guess I decided to do my own DA story because I'm in the mood for some retrospective journalling.
I had an old account on DA years ago, which is way too embarrassing even for me to visit at the moment (though I might attempt to redraw some pieces down the track when I have time!). I rejoined a few years ago and am really glad I did; I've learnt so much from this site and from all the amazing artists out there. When I was younger I actually used to hate going on DA sometimes because pretty much every piece I saw was infinitely better than mine. I was probably around 15/16 and often wondered if my art would ever be as good. Envy.....yeah...it's painful. But I was young and still in that phase where you just copy tutorials and experiment with everything. It's a good stage to be in because you're just soaking in all this information and l
