My new hubby just called from work to remind me that it's our one week anniversary! I guess that makes him the romantic in the relationship since I wasn't thinking about it at all.

So far married life is awesome! Who would have ever thought I'd find a man to marry me! ;)

What is the world coming to when I start a blog?! LOL. Anyway, it's mostly animal rescue and mindless chit chat. Maybe sketchies and stuff in the near future. Just started it, so who knows what direction it will take...

  Just for fun I thought I'd do some five dollar commissions if anyone is interested. Basically, just a single character in ink. Or colored if I have time for no additional charge. Let me know if interested!

In real life, I am officially starting my own company. I have all the necessary licensing and financial backing to get started. I just need office space and I'm very picky about that so... I thought I'd put my Graduate Gemologist degree to work and start doing private appraisals for insurance. I also do a LOT of custom design along with consultant work. Basically, I will advise you, show for you or with you and help you make the best choice. I keep you from getting ripped off and you still get the EXACT piece you were working for. Anyway, very excited. :D

  Just checking in. I've become a chronic lurker on DA for the past 6 months or so and I figured it's high time I wrote something! I'm still working in high end jewelry and studying to become a certified gemologist. So far, so good.

I just started running in the evenings after work with my boyfriend and some co-workers. Tonight marks 3 nights of agony... I mean fun. I'm going to be sore as hell tomorrow. I went from watching tv and taking naps after work to running a mile or more. We go up a hill and then run back down to our starting point via the Rivanna Trail. Apparently, the part of the trail that we hit up is known as "Bum's Hill" where the local homeless congregate at night. LOL- yikes.

Been getting back into WOW lately. I recently got my flying mount for my warrior and it's the best fun ever! I've also become an uber dork and have been religiously running Karazan with my guild. Go Shaolin!!

Anyway, time for bed. I feel like an old lady that I can't stay up past 10pm without getting cranky. Not to mention my surplus of pet cats... they're waiting on the bed for me while I type. There's barely enough room for the boyfriend, but he squeezes in somehow.

Well, it's that time of year again... birthday time! I'm gonna be officially 25 years old on June 20th at 3:47am. I'll be a quarter century old!! XD

PS. Scanner's fixed!! New art as soon as I can pull myself away from World of Warcraft long enough to draw ;)
LOL! Back again!! I've been in lurk mode for many moons now... I need to get back into uploading art and stuff. My scanner died and that makes me sad. Might be reduced to taking pics with me to my parent's house some time and using dad's scanner.

That's about it! Send me a note if you're still out there! XD
Just thought I'd toss that out there. I'd really like to start art trades and stuff again. I like the idea of joining a group or something so I can make new friends. :)
  Anyone know of a friendly art trade/exchange group that needs a new member? I'm really eager to get back into the art scene!
Woo hoo!! After a day of driving, I am now at the beach!! This place is amazing!! There are only four of us here in a 3 story beach house. Soooo happy

I'm not gonna do an Otakon report, :icondreamworldstudio: is doing a more than ample job of documenting our trip. I wuv you Maki!!!
Okay, one day soon I'm gonna make this thing a big list with a fancy banner and stuff...

For right now, I'm selling these whole series (or what I have of them) as sets-
These are all new! Seriously, they've been read like once each and placed lovingly on my bookshelves to be stared at with adoration. XD

-feel free to haggle over prices!

Kill me, Kiss me 1-4                                                 $25
Et Cetera 1-5                                                          $30
Gravitation 1-9 (shounen ai/adult situations)              $70
Prince of Tennis 1-6                                                            $40                                                              
Tokyo Mew Mew 1-7 (complete)                                 $45
Junk Force 1-3 (complete)                                        $10
Sensual Phrase 1-5 (adult- sex, nudity, etc)               $35    

shipping is going to be $10 for any given set. I actually think I'll be losing money on the shipping, because I ship priority mail. Oh well.  The prices are suggestions- make me an offer and we can probably work something out. :)

Edit: I forgot to mention that I accept paypal, check or cash. If you're interested then send me a note or email and I'll tell you the address to send it to
Heads up you guys! I'm selling off a ton of manga soon!! If you have any requests for certain series, lemme know.  I can more or less guarantee I have it. I have over 1,400 graphic novels. It's time to start clearing some out!

Also, in light of my current financial crisis, I'm thinking of taking commissions. I think the prices will range from $10-$30 each. Depending on if you want a sketch or something with multiple characters and fully colored in photoshop. Think anyone would be interested?
Well, it's humiliating to say this but, for reasons both good and bad, I'm out of job. I will be gainfully employed for 6 weeks this summer but, after that, nada. I currently have $140 in my bank account. Granted, I am due to receive my final payment, but it still isn't going to cover rent and bills- much less food, vet bills, and gasoline.
To those of you who know my in real life (you know who you are, Micah!) please don't blab it around. It's a strike to my pride as it is.
My life currently blows. I need to find full-time employment now as well as get into grad school. My birthday is on the 20th of June, so I'll be asking my parents for money instead of gifts (assuming they remember me this year... ^^;). I have freaking clue what to do. I can't tell my parents- it would kill them- so I have to find a job that's better than the one I had and tell them that I simply needed a change. Or something... I don't know.

Oy vey. Money issues suck so bad.
I can't stop playing!! I just started last night and I've clocked 12 hours already. I'm so totally addicted!!

My character's name is Saule (after the Lithuanian sun goddess) and she's a night elf warrior. Saule likes to kill things.  :skull:

PS. No one got the kiriban! The next one will be set for 6,666
My birthday is on June 20, so I'm doing a kiriban for the 6020th pageview. Yay! It will be a simple headshot like the one on my featured deviation. Headshots are fun! YAY! XD
