Well, sadly I am retiring this account. I would like to leave it up for any usefulness or amusement that it may still provide. ^_^

With a lot that has happened, I just won't be able to continue the stories on this account. I am really sad to not be able to finish Friction even though I have worked much of the plot and development in my head - I just don't have the time and confidence to get it out. Plus, I am at a point in life where I am leaving behind of lot of my old identity and, most importantly, hurts and failures. 

But, on a good note, I had a good time here and learned so much. I am so grateful for the friends made here; even the trolls have provided a harsh but much needed lesson to help toughen me up. *flex puny muscles*

Much love and thanks!

Happy New Year! Gah, so glad 2013 is over. Here's to hoping for a better year!

Oh, so watched Korra. Overall, really enjoyed it. But, errr, rants and raves again:

I think it should have stuck with the Amon/blood-bending story arc for both seasons. Instead of the cop out season one finale, she should have learned to blood-bend in order to "heal" those who lost their powers. I love the story of the second season, but I think it would have been better for the next Earth avatar. 

Speaking of blood bending, the bros, killing them, >.< 

I just don't care for Mako, that's just me

Lyn Bei Fong - total girl crush!
I do love the story lines!
Love the characters in this saga, Bolin and Varrick and Asami with close second.
Steam punk~ish setting. 

So I wonder, if they did do the Earth avatar, what kind of time-frame would it be modeled after? Like 80's/90's? I think 80's had more personality, though great cartoons in the 90's. Hmmmmmm…

Well, we will see about art. I am currently still raising an amazing active infant and going to school again. I am exhausted! I hope that when we get my MIL to move here, it'll free some time up for me. But we have a lot of work in store for us this year. I'm selling my motorcycle (go figure the ex brought it down without rear brakes, hhhmmm), going through my stuff, selling some, organizing the rest, school, school, school… 

I'm also homeschooling the little one I actually want to have another kid and get fixed. Hubby and I are both only child, so we want ours to have a sibling, because it does get lonely as an only child. 

Shit, what the heck is going on with DA? Miss it, I need to get back into the groove… just won't be the full force like before, but I have this urge to draw. I am having difficulty lately, but once I can get them juices flowing again...

Hi there you've been meeee!! ((yay random hugs to strangers!!! Hope this brightened your day!!)) Send one to all your friends who you think deserve a hug ((I see you're not accepting tags so you don't have to do this, I just wanna give you this anyway. I've been giving random people these for an hour now X3 have an awesome day!))

You might send it to your enemies as well! It'll really make them stop and think!!!

If you don't receive this back, nobody likes you, and they wish you'd stop bugging them!

If you receive this back 1 time, open up! Find more friends, enemies, or enemies pretending to be friends

If you receive this back 2 times, you're off to a good start! (Unless you sent it to yourself! That's cheating!)

If you receive this back 3 times, you're a good friend.

If you receive this back 4 times, you're truly loved as a friend!!
