You may have noticed that I haven't posted a whole lot for the last two months. That's in large part due to my new work schedule this semester. I'm currently working 48 hours a week, six days a week, and when you add in my commute that puts me around 60 hours or so. I just haven't had the time to do a whole lot of manipping, and what free time I do have I find myself wanting to do other things with more often than not.
Therefore, I think I'm going to officially shut down all commissions and trades until the summer, when I should have more time to work on things. Now, that doesn't mean that I'm going to stop manipping entirely. I'll still try to get 3-4 pieces done a month. But it'll definitely be on the back burner while I focus on some other things, most notably a couple writing projects that I've been telling myself that I'm going to get to for a couple years now.
