Life's in a transition space and I've been in a touch of a slump, between not being able to work when I'd like to (such as now) and not feeling up to working when I can (the last couple of months.)
But things are on the upswing, I believe; I've been not formally studying for the longest period in the last seventeen years of my life (doesn't that seem like it should be remarkable, even though it's not?) and my brain's begun actively striving for material again. I'm going to have an entire, lovely page of beautiful essays I've read in the last few months to post at my website before long - and I'm looking forward to updating that too.
Hi, everybody! I'm posting and such, all of a sudden, and as usual that means that I'm about to go flat-out missing again. This time, it's another out-of-continent experience - six weeks in Taiwan. I should have somewhat more reliable internet access and considerably more spare time, as I won't be attending classes - I'm there to practice speaking, and reading traditional characters - but hopefully I won't be on the internet too much, except to upload photos and blog.
I'll be posting some photos and such at Flickr and blogging, probably at my Yahoo page as Livejournal is not always family-friendly. Too bad Yahoo's new interface has ex
Man. School and life have eaten me. I'm also realizing I've experienced a considerable dry spell - the first since I began leatherwork, actually - but there's enough stirring that I'm not worried. The dry spell hasn't been nearly so bad as my dA gallery would have it and hopefully there'll be a blitz of work, both new and old, to post before long - if for no other reason than knowing I won't have time after this semester ends, and I have to go out into the wide world and find a job.
I've been sick, lately, and with the forced downtime and absolute beyond-question inability to do proper homework or study I've been doodling more than us
I'm back from China, and about as burnt out as I've ever been in my life. I had five days - count 'em - between my final at Fudan University and the beginning of my fall term at my home school. That includes the day I spent travelling - the two-hour taxi to the airport in Shanghai, the fourteen-odd hour flight to the States, the three-hour flight back to my city, and the blissfully brief ride to a bed on which I could collapse - at past midnight - only to attend class promptly at 9:55 the next morning.
It really hasn't felt all too much less pressed since. I've finally gone through all my photos, on the upside; on the other hand I've
I'm not really here right now for all intents and purposes, but apparently dA is accessible in China for this very moment. I will not be online much because I very much doubt this will be the state of affairs for long (lemme put it this way: Facebook is down), and because I desperately need to be studying.
But I didn't get to publish an update before I left, so greetings from Shanghai!
To anyone who has left or will leave comments, favorites or devwatches, thanks very much! I'll get back to you when I return. And maybe I'll have at least one good photo to post when I do.
Hope everyone's doing well and I'll be back online, posting an
