Hello everyone.

I am writing this, with a heavy heart, that I am closing out this account. I'm still going to keep this up, since I've had it since back in '06, but I will no longer be logging in and managing this account.

I will open a new one, most likely under the name of SEMstudios, or something to that tune, but at the end of the day I know that this account has been coming to a grinding halt for a while now. There are a few key reasons; mainly I don't have the time to manage this account nor the willpower to take on something I've had as more of a crutch than something I want to show the world and be proud of.

As stated previously, I've had almost 9 years worth of work on this account now, and as much as I love looking back, I'm now in a pivotal transaction in my life where there is no time to look back. I love the people I've made connections with over the years on here, and I hope that one day I can come across those people on a different account. Maybe at that point I'll be better at making friends, or keeping connections. Maybe I'll be better in updating frequently and be a better individual to those that give their time to look over my work. I just know that it isn't going to be with this account; too much static, too much haze.

I've had this account through 4 horrible relationships, many mental breakdowns, a dark high-school experience, and the start of a wonderful relationship with an amazing man. I owe it to myself to start fresh, and make a deviantart account that is clean from the bad I carried with me.

I love every one of my watchers, even if I rarely show it. I hope we can meet again, and that I can be a more attentive individual. All regrets and 'I hope's aside though, please do take care and be kind to yourselves. If you aren't on your own side, then who will be?

*waves* hey there everyone, how's it going?

I know I've been pretty absent, which is a pattern for me I know. I don't intend on putting deviantart on the back burner, and be completely absent from anything and everything that is it. I would love to participate in tournaments, and have free time to do that, but alas, that is not the case. Between work, school, and being in a relationship, my free time is spread quite thin. I do miss my devart friends, however many of you are still lingering around and haven't found more involved people, which I fully understand since I know I'm not the best person to have as a friend in the first place. I do love you all, but again, I can only spread myself so thin.

Now, enough of the sentimental chatter, I don't want to come off as too pathetic, for I have wonderful updates.

I am so deep into my degree and the faculty working with me on it that I've been practically under a rock when I'm not at work. I get my associates and my certificate in animation early 2016, I can almost taste it. I've been working with one of my teachers in working on a documentary that sheds light on soldiers returning back to U.S. soil and their transitioning back into civilian life. It's pretty exciting, and I'm doing storyboards for the animations, as well as the lines for the characters and props. It's pretty magical, and it's an amazing experience; we even get to submit it to the library of congress when we're done. I can't talk too much about it, but it's going to be amazing.

I've also finished my digital animatics final, which is this animation. Sadly, since I have it in mov format and I can only access it from the school and not my home base, I can't put it up here. I plan on fixing that by next week. The animation is a little sloppy, but since it's due next week and I have to work on the doc stuff, it'll have to do until I can revamp it and make it cleaner. I'm pretty darn proud of it though, since it's my first ligit animation.

A future plan that I have that I really hope to have work out is that I plan on putting an application to the Nickelodeon internships for next summer. I think it would be amazing, and I could really use the experience.

As for my love life, I have this amazing boyfriend who I can see myself being with for a very long time. I have never been so happy, and it's simple as that.

So overall I'm doing good, and until I can get things to a good clam I don't know when I'm gonna stop. I'm gonna try and pop on here as often as possible, and show you guys my progress on everything. I actually feel like everything's going in the right direction for once, and I have peace of mind with my life.

That's it for now, love you all.

I was born in mid 1990, (save the trouble of constantly updating this with my age) I'm 6'0", a bit on the hefty side, and my favorite color is purple atm.

I enjoy tattoos, comic making, and meeting new people.

Also, I'm currently living in Colorado, though originally from southern California. I'm a pretty laid back person to be around, and enjoy spazzes and goobers to the fullest extent.

I tend to be out on the hunt for awesome OCT's, though I'm currently working on a comic.

Hey there. I'm sorry I haven't been very active, life's just been swallowing me whole, and since I haven't been very active, I'm not sure how I can jump back into NA. A bit overwhelmed is all.

Well, if you need to take a break i understand, i don't condemn anyone who used to be a member so you can just rejoin when ever there's another opening. But if you want to stay that's fine too.
