Even though I haven't been posting art as often, I've been having a lot more fun on DA lately.  Who knew that the key to this community was to talk to people?  Hello to all my new friends and acquaintances!  It's a pleasure to have you around! :wave:

I had a nice holiday in Washington, but now I'm back in Saskatoon for awhile.  I started a new job yesterday at Claire's.  I've never desired to work there, but I walked in there on my break and bam, I had a job.  It's one of those things people will be surprised to learn about me.  Honestly, aside from a love affair with shoes, I'm not much of a girly-girl.  Either way, with Claire's and the fabric store, I may just be able to pay my rent.  Have I mentioned that the cost of housing has increased 45% in the past year?  It has.  I have a friend living in Vancouver who pays less than I do for rent.  My one-bedroom apartment in Saskatoon is $635/month, not counting electricity, cable, Internet, etc.  Good times.

My page has nearly 5000 hits.  I'm not sure if this is supposed to mean anything to me or not, but thanks for stopping by!

:heart: Much love,
//Britt

As always, feel free to check out my LiveJournal.

I've been working at Fabricland again since October.  Same old, same old, sorry to say.  My manager called me and wanted me back.  I'm still torn on whether or not I'll stay there long.  It's a bit strange for a nineteen-year-old to have held the same job since they were seventeen.  I should have had dozens by now.  Sad.

Christmas is coming at me full-speed and I've barely finished a thing.  I did clean up some of my apartment tonight, but that doesn't really help in terms of having presents for people.  It'll be a sad, lame Christmas this year.  I'm heading to the States with my mum, step-dad and brother on Boxing Day.  That should be fun.

Interesting update of the century, I say!

Wow.  I've been busy.  Sorry to say.  Been drawing lots, but never scanning or anything.  For this, I am amazing.

Since March I've quit my job, read the last HP book, seen the fifth film, been given some money, become addicted to Big Brother 8, travelled to Toronto, and that's about it.  I'm working in it.  Hooray.

Cheers!

Wow, this year is off to a messy, hectic start.  Seriously.  I mentioned in my last entry that my favourite grandparent had died in November, and while I'm still not over it, my flipping dad dies on me.  I was with him as he passed on 20 March 2007.  Needless to say, I'm quite choked up.  He was fifty-four, and the biggest reason I hate alcohol abuse.  Just wait - Three years from now I'll be the crazy bitch handing out pamphlets to university students on the dangers of too much of a good thing.

Still, I'm going to kick 2007's ass.  There's lots to do, but in a way, this is all for the best.  While I was stressing and losing my mind over how I was going to possibly accomplish everything, the passing of my dad will actually be helpful in relieving some stress.  With whatever money I'm obtaining from all of this, I'll be able to pay off my apartment for the year, which is fabulous.  Maybe I'll even go to school as I won't have to work full-time in order to keep a roof over my head.

What is all this stuff I'm doing?  Good question:

  • 13 11 July - Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (film)
    • 21 July - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (FINAL BOOK YOU GUYS!)


I think my head may explode.  I really hope there'll be more art from me in the future.  I'm just so damn busy.
Wow, holy crap, an update.  And I actually posted art.  Well, poop-stains, anyway.

Not much has happened since I last updated.  I mean, really, nothing.  Another Potter book came out, I've held a job since July 2005, I graduated high school, my favourite grandparent passed away and I have an apartment ... But you don't need to know about that!  NOTHING HAS HAPPENED.

Holy moly, it's been over a year since I've written here! This baffles me, as I quite like DeviantART, and visit it more than one would probably assume.

Anyhow, I'm sporadically updating my gallery.  Nothing special, though, as I have the worst scanner in the world and I haven't got the energy to kick it in to gear.  However, next semester I've enrolled in Visual Art, so something interesting may come of that. Don't take my word for it, though - I've never taken an art class and be damned if I know how they work.

Anyway, keep your eyes open - I might stop by!

I can't believe I said I wasn't dead, when its clear that I am. I'm severely unhappy with anything I draw as of late, so I dunno. Updates will be spontaneous, I fear.

Sometimes I add crap to my LiveJournal, so feel free to check that out once in awhile. I add photos a lot, too.

Cheers,

Hi,

I'm not dead, just on holidays. Stuff when I get home. Oh, glorious!

OKies, all I have yet posted is old junk. I could sit here and come up with a well-thought out excuse for my lack of content, but to be quite frank, its all because I'm a lazy git who doesn't feel like uploading. I'm working on it, just give me some time to go through all my folders and crud at home for stuff worth finishing/posting. Thank you so far to those who have left me comments; Warm fuzzies all around!
