The reason for my most recent long stretch of hiatus this year was that my laptop that I was using for the past couple years at college basically died. The battery went out on it, and one of the RAM chips fried, so I was running on 1 GB of RAM and my iPhone was faster than it for all of my online interactions. Attempting to run any of my Adobe programs on my old lappy was a joke. I'm finally running on my new desktop machine that Linkmax custom built me with parts we ordered on Newegg. Now I'm running on $1200 of awesome, so I'm back in business finally!
There's also other exciting news in my life! I'M ENGAGED! The boyfriend (Starrynightflower) who I posted a picture with at the start of the year proposed to me in August in front of an awesome mural at Gameworks in Seattle! We have a date set for May of 2017. We decided a longer engagement period would be smart, but we are living together as of September.
Looking forward to getting reacquainted with everyone!
