OK, enough nonsense.  This is what I posted on my comic site to explain my long hiatus:

Graduation: This was a huge mess that spanned months and was a real hassle. I had to visit a psychologist to prove why I couldn’t handle taking foreign language classes. What I learned taught me a lot about myself and why I have some of the problems that I do (many that affect my efforts with my comic, too). I learned that I have a math disorder that disrupts my ability to estimate time effectively (yeah that happens with this comic a lot). I also have both a reading AND a writing disorder, which explains my spelling errors. The doctor thought that was ironic, considering how I’m an English major. She also thought it was weird that I only had an average memory but my vocabulary was better than 99% of tested people in my age and education bracket. I also have an auditory discriminatory disorder, which explains why I have such a hard time understating people sometimes when they talk to me, hearing on the phone, or hearing dialogue from the TV. In addition, I also process information much slower than the average person, which slows down everything I do. In spite of all this, I still have a very high IQ! ^_^ If it weren’t for these brain anchors, I’d be at genius level. I’m satisfied with being on the superior level, though, so I’m not too bummed. I’m just jazzed that I’m smarter than I thought I was. All this was certainly enough to deal with the whole foreign language problem, and as of August 2007, I am a proud graduate of the University of Washington! ^_^

Moving: I moved to Utah this summer. This was a BIG DEAL. I had to clean and pack for weeks. I haven’t moved since I was five or something. Now I’m getting ready to move again, but it’s just a short ways away so it’s not as big of a deal. That first move was a NIGHTMARE. >_<

Injury: I injured my neck back in the end of August. BADLY. The fourth vertebrae is still out of joint. I was in serious pain for a few months and since then I have occasional bouts of pain that make me want to lie down and not move. This is a serious setback for an artist since working on my strip or other art aggravates the injury. I have no idea when I’ll get better.

Employment: I HAVE A JOB! I got it back in September. I do data entry. No, this does not help my neck any. >_< It’s not up my education level but it’s just temporary so I can build a resume.

Miscellaneous reasons of questionable importance: There’s been other stuff too and I’d be lying if I tried to pretend that all my hiatus reasons were good ones. I did do a bit of goofing off, such as getting involved with insanely long shows (Babylon 5 DVDs and the fansubbed Once Piece anime) that I just couldn’t stop watching. My bad.

On the up side, I now have the Adobe Creative Suite 3 Master Collection!  I have a whole STUDIO on my computer!  And my new computer rocks, by the way.  We've named it Dark Knight 'cuz it looks like the Batmobile.  ^_^

My twin sis! :iconmystryl-shada:  And her friend (and mine by proxy): :iconpurplerebecca:  And another friend :iconsharmclucas:

'Ello! I just wanted to say hello and ask about the webcomic, The Hero's Handbook. I was wondering if it is still updating or not.
Like I said, just curious. Hope you have good day and that the new year is treating you well so far!

Figured I'd drop a message by to say I loved the comic :) My only slight concern is the fact it hasn't been updated in nearly a YEAR! Did your computer crash with all your work or something?
Sytakan Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2008
Lemme be the first to say something in a while. Although what, I'm not sure.


Because I CAN. Muahahaha!
