Okay, so apparently I haven't written a journal since April of last year--oops! (I have also fallen way way WAY behind as far as looking at my DA messages, double oops!)

A lot has happened in that time, including me apparently reaching 28,000 page views and then some! O_O You guys are awesome, thank you very much! I'll give the quick summary of where things stand
-I'm on my second quarter of another year at university. Geez, they go by fast. Feels like just a few weeks ago I was registering for fall quarter, and then I had basically a month long break that just vanished, and then--here I am and it's 2017. Whaaaaaat!
-My family moved into a new house, starting in November, and we got the last box moved over the same week that I got back from Fall quarter. I spent a lot of my break helping to haul stuff from the old house to the new one, and helping get things unpacked and organized in said new house. I love the place! It's much bigger than either of our two prior houses, and it still feels cozy. The yard is huge and awesome, the whole place is super cool...I really, really hope that we can stay there for a long time!
-My Christmas break went by in a blur, but it was a good one. Always good to get to stay at home, enjoy the company of my family, and actually spend some time at home rather than away at college. I found a few gifts that my family all liked for Christmas, and they did the same for me. It was a good time!

Another thing that happened over my break is that I was selected as a tester for a new keyboard design--the TextBlade, by WayTools. See, I had ordered this fancy new piece of go-anywhere typing technology in Feb 2015, back when WayTools was saying that they would be shipping in April. Then they found some latent hardware flaws when they tried to enter mass production, while they were fixing those they changed some things in the software....So this past October, I got sick and tired of waiting, ordered myself a much less sophisticated keyboard off Amazon (The MoKo folding keyboard, for the curious), and wrote a joke review of it as if it were the TextBlade. Well, when I posted that, there were a bunch of people who had also been waiting way too long for their TextBlades, and they thought it was hilarious. One of them even commented that WayTools should send me a testing unit, just for the laugh. Well, a few weeks later, what do you know! I got one!
My fingers are completely addicted to this thing now. The feel of the keys, the fact that everything is so close together and compact...It makes legacy keyboards feel like mechanical typewriters, and yes, I have used a typewriter long enough to make that comparison. WayTools are still saying that general release will start "soon", but I would say that it is very worth it to put in a TextBlade preorder, especially if you do a lot of typing for a living. There really isn't else out there with this level of ergonomics, functionality, and portability for text and data entry. Have a look at my current reviews of the TextBlade!

That's most of the news that readily comes to mind, though I think with all the writing and photography classes I'm taking this quarter, it's safe to say that there will be more to come! Happy New Year to all you folks!

I am me. Mad scientist, swordsman, writer.

If you're coming to say "thanks for the fave", you're welcome. Poke me so I remember to peruse your entire gallery.

Give a llama and you'll get one in return!

I'm always looking for people to read my works and comment on them. As standard policy, it's okay to say "I like this, but you should look at...", or even plain out "I don't like this, terrible piece; here's some specifics of why."
The "ZOMG this is grat ive never read any better ur a gr8 wrtr have a nice day :)" response is...Honestly, it makes me wonder if you even took the time to read the story.
If you like my writing, tell me why; if you like it but found typos and/or confusing bits (I know they're in there!), tell me so I can fix things! And if you don't like it at all, let me know what it was you didn't like so I don't write more of it!

You're quite welcome! A mutual friend, Miluiel-the-Friendly recommended you to me, following a discussion of my Asgard Chronicles canon with you.

I love the art you do! I'll have to make a dedicated effort to look through your entire gallery, rather than just the first few pages.

And thanks also for the llama badge, and here's one in return!

Oh, you're that guy. Cool. Hey, if you're interested, I did a sketch of your orange powered armor thingy (can't remember what she called it, it was a long conversation, many many words) and I was gonna put a little color on it and render it out when I had the time. I mean, if you think that would be cool.

That was me, and yes, that would be wonderful! I always like seeing what art can be inspired by my stories, worlds, and discussions about them.

The Asgard Chronicles are one of my longest series of all time, and there's a lot of world behind them. Miluiel is very familiar with said world, and loves talking about it even more than I do.
