Well two years since last journal update and possibly lest on an art submission. It wasn't that I didn't want to upload, its more a matter of simply forgetting. I'm sure many know how it goes...get the career job, get a social life, forget about DeviantArt. Forget you have it, forget it exists, until one day you're like "Oh riiiight, DeviantArt. I have one of those. I think. Hmmm, password retrieval. Click."
Not like anyone pays attention to livejournal anymore, either. Myspace and facebook took care of that, even though I despise Myspace and I'm out of school so I don't hav
