So I figured I'd might as well check in with the dA peeps to prove I'm still alive. Yep. Still breathing. Pulse… I'll get back to you on that...
For those of you who've known me for years, my sudden absence no doubt came as no surprise since I do this often. A flourish of activity/arting/RPing followed just as quickly by total vanishment that may or may not last up to a year. Yep. Sounds like me.
I'd actually intended to come back in early June, but video games and a new job have ever so rudely stepped in the way. Yeah, I said video games. I managed to finish
both inFAMOUS and
inFAMOUS 2 (yesterday)! Proud pose.
I haven't played games this consistently since probably late high school-early college, man, and it feels amazing.
I justify my game playing with 'I friggin' bought this PS3 and I barely use it beyond Netflix and Blu-rays. So I'm gonna play some friggin' games now, dammit! D:<' I hope to start up Killzone 2 today, too, since I purchased the trilogy when I first bought the console and it's been gathering dust ever since. Granted, now I really want to play inFAMOUS Second Son x.X but NO… PS3 first…. PS4… maybe Christmas… >>;
As for the new job. Applied for it back in May on a total whim one night after I saw it posted online. I was super bored at Lowe's and it was dead so I was surfing the job postings on the work computer, cough
, haha. Never thought I'd get it. I barely qualified in my own opinion, but I received an e-mail back within 24-hours. From there it was a couple weeks of phone interviews, online assessments, in-person interviews, role-play assessments and then yay I get the job.
I've been in training in San Diego since June 8th now and I was hoping I'd have time to get some RPing in… Nope. The amount of studying/focus required after an 8-hour day of class means I can blow off steam and give my brain a break via gaming and that's it. I know I'd be way too distracted by RPing/chatting so I'm banning myself from doing so until after training. :\ Pooie for me, but I want Top 5 in the class and so far I think I'm on track.
That being said I hope to be back online for chatting-RPing-goodness the first week or so of August or perhaps the end of August. 'Post School' is in August and while we're not going to be "studying" like we are now, I'm not yet sure just how 'laid back' it's going to be. We'll see. If nothing else, that is our last month of training and I start the actual job after that so I'll be home and RP-able... unless I fall into another anti-social-lack-of-inspiraton-so-dun-bother-me-while-I-drool-over-other-current-interests ditch. Yush.
Ok, time to get back to studying. Exam and quiz tomorrow morning, woo!P.S
Oh yeah, one more thing I was doing in my absence. :3It was a small class, but I still didn't expect to win anything. Can't wait to go back next year when she'll be out of the project class!
P.P.S. One more one more thing! I forgot to tell you. I miss being nerdy with you guys :c Big fuzzy Toger Berd-self wants to nom on people! Ok…back to studying for real...
