BACK IN WASHINGTON
Yep, so I'm back in Seattle for the summer, currently working at Subway. I did as well as expected on my finals, which was really nice. I had a nice German meal for lunch at a restaurant downtown, because today was my day off. I haven't had any nice days when I haven't been working to take new photography though, and my reserves from my Germany trip are starting to run dry, but hopefully I'll have the chance to go take new photography soon.

FINAL EXAMS AND PLANS FOR THE SUMMER
Well, as you may have noticed I've been spending more time on dA again as my semester has wound down. I've only got two finals left and I suspect that my GPA for my first semester of college will be right around a 3.5, which to me at least is really awesome, granted that I haven't been in school since 2008. Anyway, I'll be heading home to Seattle for the summer, and I plan on spending more time taking urban photography down there. Hopefully I'll have opportunities to show you guys more of the beautiful landscapes out on the Olympic Peninsula or the Cascade Mountains as well over the summer. Life is good! Oh, and I saw the first episode of Avatar: The Legend of Korra. It's sweet! I'm not a huge anime fan as many of you know, but I love, love, LOVE Avatar!

Hey everyone! Sorry for disappearing for so long, but I'm back. The catch is, now I'm also in school at Brigham Young University, which means I don't have much time to work on new stuff, but because I now also have a laptop of my own again, I will try to spend some time on here at least answering my messages.

TAKING A BREAK (INVOLUNTARILY)
Well, after this journal entry, I'm taking an involuntary break from deviantART for an undetermined amount of time, because my brother-in-law wants his laptop back to run some diagnostics on it. I could borrow it again from him as soon as next week, or I might not ever get to borrow it again and have to wait until I have my own computer. Hopefully I'll be back sooner rather than later, but if it does take a few weeks, just know I'll be back and am not abandoning you all.
P.S. Thanks to all of you guys and my new friends, this month has been my best month on dA since I got home from Germany in April. 900 pageviews! Thanks so much!

LOTS OF NEW FRIENDS
This week has been awesome! I've met so many new and great artists through my forum post. I've had a good week at work, the sun is shining, and things are looking so much better in my personal life and here on dA than they have for me in recent months. My thanks go out to all my friends here for your support and friendship!

Wow I was looking at my stats and frankly, they went down a ton since I got back from Germany. I used to get an average of 1200 pageviews a month on dA, and now I'm barely getting a quarter of that. I honestly think it's because the dA group accounts spam everybody with so many deviations in our inboxes that we skip over a lot, simply because there is so much out there. I'm guilty of that too; seeing that I got 20,000 new deviations to look at every week... I kind of miss the old dA...EDIT:
Ah-ha! I started going through the list of people I devwatch. I had been watching 650 people, and I started sorting through them and of the first 300 I've looked at, 2/3 haven't posted anything new in at least 6 months. If that pattern continues, and if it's true of my devwatchers as well, then in effect I went from 600 people who actively watched my work in 2008 to about 200 who're still even active. That explains a lot. Looks like I gotta make a lot of new friends to keep my work on the "in"
As a side note, you'll also find a new featured artist at the bottom of this journal.
