Last July marked a decade ago that I joined deviantART, and I'd like to take a moment and thank this insane community for everything that this pushed me to doing.
I always had a love for interfaces and design, in 2000 when I was 10 years old I popped a CD-ROM (they look like what you put in your PS4) into my IBM Aptiva and it booted up a fullscreen highly illustrated menu for kids that allowed to install programs (now called 'Apps'.)
I started tweaking my computer for years, my username is even a rip-off of a Winamp skin I was using at the time by 883Design and when I got to deviantART I was required to sign up to download one of @celsojuni
I'm moving across the Atlantic to New York City at the end of this month,
i was excited at first, now I'm just plain scared to leave everything I know behind,
I won't see my girlfriend for 3 months (she'll join me in NYC in November).
I need a place to stay in NYC still, if you know any good sublets in Brooklyn or a good (cheap) hostel near Chelsea or West Village that'd be awesome!
I'm going to be working at Livestream.com
I'm so excited/happy/scared/feeling weird!
It's been such a long time and from my uploads it's clear that not many of my followers are actually still using deviantART.
I've always thought deviantART ha
