The Great Tutorial Round-Up: V is for...

Hello, hello, my fellow artisans and crafters! :love: I kid you not, this is my favourite time of the year (you might even say it's the most wonderful time of the year... ;) ). And the reasons for October to be wonderful ins't just that the leaves changing colour and the weather finally becoming manageable again; it's because October really brings out the inner artisans and crafters out of most people who usually wouldn't touch this category. But think of it! Pumpkin carvings! Painting faces! Dressing up yourself and the house! Make your own costumes! :la: You can see where my enthusiasm lies, can't you? In the spirit of the upcoming Hallow

My Bio
Depending on who you ask, I'm either a ninja (or maybe a samurai?), a little bit eccentric, a genius, totally nuts, or a cat. Art is my hobby, science is my life, and I am finally a zoologist and it is awesome.

Currently I'm unemployed. I used to be an intern working with sea turtles (and before that, dolphins and sea lions). I'm hoping to find a job working with birds, especially birds of prey. Someday I plan on going to grad school and getting my doctorate in animal behavior.

Hey I was just wondering what's going on with the it dead?  I'm asking you b/c you're the only admin that seems to have been active in the last 30 days.  Thanks :)

Oh, um... I have no idea! I haven't been on dA much lately because of stress due to my job, so I'd just assumed things were running smoothly there!

LOL nope stuff is expiring and some people have left.  I understand not having the time to be on there, it's probably what happened to the others :)
Anyway thanks for the info!
