I apologize for neglecting not especially this place-but more of the people in it. How this came to be is a long, long story that I will not recount and don't wish to recount to even my friends on here. But after all of that happened, I made a habit of checking this place sometimes, which is one of the reasons you might have seen me online, and perhaps left a few messages, which I did not respond to. Not out of spite, not because I don't like you anymore, but because...Let's face it : it's been two years or more. A lot can happen in two years. Interests change, friends change, etc. And being in the face of all that has changed, it's kinda scary to envision talking again and finding out if we still click or not. But it's not just talking : school is brutal. In fact, I'm currently in the most brutal year of school, ever (as in, from elementary school to university, people in general say my grade is the hardest of them all). There's so much I'd like to do, but there's always SCHOOL SCHOOL SCHOOL HOMEWORK SUP HUGE PROJECT YO EXAMS YA BRAT TAKE THAT YEAH THAT'LL DO IT around consuming most of my time, and there's also a matter of general internet browsing, drawing, writing, etc. in there, making time a rare and precious commodity. In all of that, I can't imagine resuming contact with people outside of school at all, and don't even talk to me about kicking up my dA once again (which is one thing I actually doubt will happen, but we never know). The pressure would just be too great. I'm honored-and also profoundly impressed-some of you actually kept me in your minds despite me not having said a word for so long. I don't even know if I'll be able to talk on summer break, in all honesty. So much happened, but things got better, and I'm alright now. I actually wanted to do this journal for a while but never got around to it because it was too damn intimidating, until now, so forgive me for that. I hope you understand this and just...Man, it's been a while. Also, Merry Belated Christmas and Happy, Also Belated, New Year !
