So, I'm alive. Sorry I haven't been around lately, but life had been interesting for me for a while. I got employed (finally) part time, lost some people in my life (to heroine overdose, motorcycle crash, and cancer respectively). That all happened in the span of two months (first happened my first day on the job, and the last two within a week of each other).

Finally, I know I should have informed you guys earlier, Stinker passed away as well. She slipped outside in November, and despite all our effort to find her (door knocking, hanging posters, etc..) I got a call a week later from someone who had found her body. I gave the reward to an animal charity, and tried to move on. We think that she suffered a form of dementia in the end, which is why she was unable to find her way back.

This is where it gets better. For Christmas my (super awesome) parents got me a new camera which I've been learning to use since then. Then in January I decided it was time to get a new cat, and to adopt one to help them as we helped Stinker (she was a stray). After some looking I ended up at The Humane's Society, and met two cats who were brothers. They were the only cats that were adopted yet, so I had met them in the room and couldn't decide which one I wanted.

"Plus," I mentioned to the woman helping me out. "I don't want to separate them." At that point she offered to give me one for free if I adopted the other. So that's how I ended up with two cats (Hify and Wildfire). They're a handful, and George isn't their biggest fan, but it's getting easier and funner to have them. Then, two days ago I got myself two piercings with my tax return (a second lobe piercing and a helix). So life is looking better, and I've found inspiration for photography again. I have some new pictures I'll be posting later tonight once the edits are done.

Glad to be back!

100 Favorites Already

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 3, 2010, 8:02 PM
I Stand Alone has already reached 100 favs and it's only been up nine days! Sure it's not as fast as one of :iconhumon:'s comics, but still a personal best. I'd like to thank my Watchers, the groups that featured it, and to those who loved it enough to fav it.  
Have a good weekend everybody, and features will be on Sunday.

So it's time for features again :la:
My sister let me use her camera this week, and I had a lot of fun with it. I'm also considering getting a flickr for my photos, but still toying with the idea. Also my Thanksgiving was great, and I hope yours was too.

Good News and Late News

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 22, 2010, 2:42 PM
So my ankle is much better. I can walk on it and I should be good by tomorrow or Wednesday. I also talked my sister into letting me use her camera (she's awesome, and her camera is too). So I can't wait until she gets it here tomorrow!

Also, this happened awhile ago, my Grandfather gave me his camera (a Nikon N6006) and all his equipment (5 lenses, 6 filters, a flash, and much more). I plan to arrange them in a still life soon to show you guys. I haven't taken any pictures because it's a film camera and I rather develop my own pictures like I did in the good ol' days than take them to walgreens. I'm working on planning a dark room and getting a job to build it.

I hope everyone has a good week!

They'll be coming less often. Maybe once or twice a week. Otherwise I'd be rushing to get pieces together and no one's happy. That it all. Have a great Halloween everyone. Unfortunately I have no plans other than to watch The Girl Who Played Witch Fire with some friends. Don't get me wrong, I am excited about that, but I wish could do something bigger. Like cover myself with fake blood and take a nap in public (that was a good year). So, what are you planning?
