Good hello fellow deviants,

I do apologize about my absence of updating you all about anything that is remotely related to this place.  As some of you know, I work as an IT tech full time, school my face off full time and have a 3 year old who takes up all the rest of the time I have (totally not complaining.  She's the best thing in my life).  

However, during my down times (and sometimes having to watch updates, Tron 3.6 and other scans just silently moving along), I like to write.  A lot.  And have been looking into starting a blog.

I am thinking of starting some sort of a techie blog.  I can't reveal all my secrets, but I would like to be able to review apps, software, hardware and share my opinions and hilarity that happens within the basement of my work.  

Is that something people read?  I know it's so easy to just Google, "Why can't I?" for anything that deals with tech stuff... but... sometimes, it's worth reading from someone who sees it everyday.

I'll take any input!

Thanks y'all.  I'm about to head to bed.  I'm exhausted.
  • Listening to: "Mom, I wanna throw this away..."
I dunno why I was thinking about this account today, but I was.  I thought I would say a good hello everyone and throw an update in your face.

As all of you have seen, I'm not doing much with my artistic abilities.  Well, not in a way that you would normally do, anyway.  Most of my free time is working as a full time IT pro. at a local ISP.  I really dig my position and love the company I work for.
I'm also 15 credits away from my associates in Networking.  I just signed the papers to increase my loan today to get that all out of the way.  Pretty freakin' stoked.

Oh yeah... and Bria will be 3 this year.  Time flies when you become a parent.  

Anyway, I won't go into the boring details.  If you want to keep in touch with me in other ways, besides the Art of Deviants, here are some details.

My instagrams: julespaul87
My Tweets: ajulesaday

I will also notify y'all about an upcoming blog (that does not deal with Tumblr and will be more related to my job...).  I need to go do some yoga and head to bed.  Full day of adult things need to be done tomorrow.

Stay neat.
I do not use this account anymore, really.  This is an old screen name with old memories.
Out with the old and in with the new.

I do not think I will be part of the DeviantART community anymore.  It's been a good long while.  But, I just find myself keeping things with my close friends and away from those who have left negative impacts on me.

Most of this gallery will be gone in a few days.  I have to save all of these arts and then finally shut this thing down.  I'm not sure if I will return to DA...

Good show, DA.  Good show.
Um.... I have no excuse as to why I never use DeviantART anymore.  I think with the whole being a mom and going to college thing really put me on a HUGE hiatus.  But, whatever.

I'm actually on Weasly now.  Which has motivated me to do more art, but I haven't really finished anything.
I dunno.  My erriewon screen-name has died away.  

I hope everyone is doing well, though.  Seriously.  So many great artists on here, doing their thang.
Anyhoot.  I'm going to go sleep off this turkey.  Have a Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.  We should do this more often.
I swear on everything that is holy (or unholy... whichever you prefer), I will upload actual photos.  I've just been so busy with school and with the kiddo, I haven't had a break for any hobbies.

Except for sleeping.  The most favorite hobby of all.

I'm killing some time before the new episode of Sons of Anarchy comes on.  Yeah, I'm addicted, so sue me.

Hola DeviantART

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 15, 2011, 12:11 AM
I don't know why I've neglected to use this gallery for so long... I think, like all projects I've started, it was left behind.
Now that I'm back here, there are a lot of things I would love to start doing...

Might be a little easier now that I'm more of a stay-at-home mom :)
Anyways, hello old friend.  Thanks for being here.

  • Drinking: Water.
So my last journal entry was the exact same day as today, expect one year ago...

And I do apologize for nothing really posting much at all... I was in a place where I didn't have internet and couldn't really post any of my artwork.  I was losing interest pretty quick, but now, I think I have returned to enjoy this place :)

I am back living with my parents, for now, until i can find something that will allow the rio pup and closer to work.  I appreciate them letting me move back here and putting up with myself and my dog.

More work will come... and I hope to see some of you guys later :)

  • Drinking: Water.
So we are all moved in to our new house.  I'm at work, enjoying some wifi time (we won't have internet nor tv for a while... but thats what is great about living close to a coffee shop ;)).  

The move was good, my roomies are great and I couldn't be happier :)

Pictures later.  I gotta charge the camera!
  • Drinking: Water.
I haven't updated my journal since like... August.  So I thought I would give you guys a little update about whats going on...

So a few of the girlfriends and I have been looking places to rent in Kowsbell (Kalispell) and we FINALLY found a place we've been looking at for a while.  I'm really excited to start packing up my shit and getting into it.

SOOOO... there might be times (like recently) I will not be online nor commenting on the cool shit you all have posted... I promise I will have more time once the move craze settles down.
I love you all like the fat kids love the cheesecake factory during summer camp!
(no offense to the fat kids... it's just sorta fun to say that :P)

BrokenOpen tagged me, I guess :P  So I'll do it...


1. Post these rules.
2. Each tagged person must post 10 things about themselves on their journal.
3. At the end, you have to choose and tag 10 people and post their icons on the same journal.
4. Go to their pages and send a message saying you tagged them.
5. No tag-backs.

1.) I HATE THE EFFING SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2.) Most of my heritage is Irish/German... Just to explain the red hair and radical temper :)

3.) I do not like the smell of store bought bread.  I have to either make it or go to the bakery.  

4.) I'm addicted to Canon... c.c;

5.) I will tell you the randoms... and you will most likely freak out.

6.) I :heart::heart::heart:: kayaking!

7.) I love to talk to my friends until the sun will come up... No matter where we are :)

8.) I'm not afraid to commit to something if it's well worth the committing.

9.) James Dean will always be a sexy man to me.

10.) I love tattoos :)

I tag whoever the hell wants to do this.  I know, I'm boring...

Anyway, I woke up this morning and found that the UPS man has left me a new camera at my doorstep.  So photography is back in action... and yeah.
Unfortunately, today it rains.  I wanted to get out on the water.... but I think it's gonna rain all weekend.  My sister comes out tomorrow.  I'm pretty stoked about that one!  
Hmm, I also get paid tonight.  That's so AWESOME!
  • Drinking: Water.
So, this month has been CRAZY!  With work and the house... it's been one busy little project :P

Mom and I took the kayak's out Wednesday afternoon on Echo Lake.  I would have pictures, if the waterproof hatch was shut properly and my CAMERA WASN'T IN LIKE 4 INCHES OF WATER!!!!!!
UGHHHH, I had only had that camera since February and just started using it more recently...

So now, I have to drag Big Bertha everywhere... I'm not used to such a slow CAMERA AHHHH!

Sorry I haven't really commented on journals nor deviations.  I suck. :P
Love you guys!

Well, as two of you know (gazz and lauren), I have been working on my house for the past couple of weeks...

We have all the carpet ripped up and my brother, James, came in and cut some trim to fit in some snap hardwood floors.
Today was pretty warm in the flathead valley... and I'm pooped.  Tomorrow evening, mom and I might take the kayaks out on the lake.  I promise pictures :)

Just letting you guys know, I'M ALIVE!  and well :)
Back again to an early morning at the brew.
  • Drinking: Water.
I feel a lot of it...
I mean everything seems to want to be photographed today...

I'm going to pull out my hit-men and make them models LOL!

Life is pretty cynical.  I have a lot of stress... and not channeling it well.
Probably should paint more... ANGRYHULKPAINTING

I would like to wish a happy father's day to the dads out there on DA... :heart:

Today is the official first day of summer and it really doesn't even seem like it.  It's trying to rain and it's not very warm.  I enjoy it, though.  Brings out my creative side.  I went out and took a bunch of pictures of mom's flowers... but only got one that was worthy enough to post onto DA today...

I'm gonna try to clean the kitchen up before I decide what I want for dinner.  I might just go get sushi for myself... and listen to some music while I draw away...
I dunno.  I've been so distant from my drawing stuff the past couple of weeks.  Seems like nothing wants to come out or nothing really turns out right at all...

Sigh... I am sleepy today... and I don't really feel like cooking nor cleaning. Cleaning HAS to be done before mama gets home from Washington.  Maybe I'll just wait until then.  I dunno.

Just really... not into anything at all today haha.
I'll stop blabbing :)

So John and I are officially done.  It's really not a giant surprise.  As much as I am very sad about it now, I'm not too worried about moving on and making more friends.  And maybe one day, I'll settle down with someone.
This is another round for me and my friends time.  And I can't wait to start on my webcomic!

Yes, I'm bringing InkDrop comics back from the dead.  I have about 4 pages done (just need to water color them and put into photoshop for frames and what not).

Today, it's raining... but I get to stay inside.  I have the next 2 days off and totally stoked!
Then I work for like 5 days and then leave on my trip to see my sister... AND THE KINGS OF FUCKING LEON! NIN!  JANES ADDICTION

Don't worry, I'll get pictures, Lauren :D

Today is my saturday...

And I'm stuck in my FF Crisis Core... Freakin Angeal and being a freakin perfectionist...
Angers me that I can't beat him... but now I'm going back and doing missions to level up and stuff..
I should of done that in the beginning...

Well, looks like the work week will be back into business as a lot of people are having the weekend off, I choose to work my butt off making them happy with lattes and banana chacha cakes...

Tonight, John and I are going out to watch Observe and Protect.  Seth Rogan is pretty hot :lol:

I'm also bringing my drawing stuff to work on some sketches and free myself from the following:

-The internets
-World of Warcraft
-FF Crisis....

I won't be able to post anything until tomorrow evening, but, I will keep all of you guys in mind.
The weather has been pretty weird today.  The sun will shine while snow is dancing around...
I'm like, '...double u tee eff?'
John says, 'welcome to global warming.'

Sorta.  It's just that with the environment wearing down from our abuse and us getting closer to the sun... We're gonna have weird weather.
I say plant more trees, regulate logging more, plant more hemp for paper and recycle.

I also spent like 35 bucks buying really good fruits and veggies today at the store.  I can tell the difference in my moods and body when I eat junk food.
I'm. Not. Nice. At all, actually.  However, when I eat half a grapefruit for breakfast, some granola and a salad for lunch and some salmon and rice for dinner, I'm like... the nicest gal you'll ever meet.

So I dunno.  Kinda weird.
At any rate, that's all for now.  I'm off to get myself all pretty and stuff.
LOVE YOU READERS (Lauren and BrokenOpen.)!!! lol

P.S So I'm 22... and got weird looks from teenage girls in the line when they saw I had a bottle of Women's One A Day vitamins...
I wanted to turn around and be like, 'YOU WILL BE IN THE SAME BOAT I AM IN, IN THE NEXT 6 YEARS, I PROMISE!'

...I really wanted to cause a scene. -___-;

I've noticed that I take as many vitamins as an 70+ year old takes for their regular medication...
Is that bad? rofl
  • Listening to: the wind outside
  • Reading: DA journals, comments and poetry
  • Watching: letters type across the screen
  • Playing: Sims2 Open for Business (lol)
  • Eating: nothing
  • Drinking: nothing
It is very windy today.  I'm laying on John's bed, listening to the gusts outside and wonder 1. flying a kite would be suicidal today and 2. it's 36 degrees outside... fuck. that. shit all together.

I am thinking of doing a gamed-themed comic... like with Sims2 or something retarded like that.
I have 2 days off... and I don't have to do really anything at all.
Hear alarm clock... throw phone on the floor.  Stupid phone.

Get up (finally).  Log onto computer and find random things to read about...

Hear John's phone go off and Justin calling him as a courtesy call to wake him up for work... Asshole, I wanted to judo chop him awake >3

Get semi-dressed.  I was going home anyway.

Call Craig and wonder why he can't log into the world of warcraft.  Smells fishy

Download some patches for WoW and figure out it's his WoW that's being retarded.  Kudos Blizzard, Kudos

Watch Youtube videos O____O

Finds twitter to be an absolute addiction... now sitting and typing this out.

I live a very interesting life.  Will update more when I get home from work and possibly get some artwork posted.  No promises, but you know how it is.
I like to keep you hanging :lol:

I also need to get into work this 'weekend' and take pictures so I can finish that damned cork board of awesome.
That's right.

That is all... 2 journals in a row... I must miss DA that much lol.
