No. Wait.
I meant. Nevermind.

Anyway, as some of you might know from facebook (like three of you? I dunno), I got a new job a month or so back. Since I moved to Seattle in 2011, I'd been working in the basement of Value Village. I had to get up at 6am every day, and got home around 5pm if I got out on time and went straight home... early start and a long day, every day, which meant I was tired when I did get home and was in bed by 9pm. So I had a few hours in the evening to myself, which was spent lazily poking around the internet since that's all I had energy for. I'm a night owl and I wasn't able to stay up long enough to hit that creative hour. I was going through my gallery here and counted up the drawings I've done in the past few years... it wasn't pretty. Breakdown:
In 2009 I still lived in Michigan. I uploaded 31 drawings to my main gallery here.
In 2010 I uploaded 11.
In 2011 I uploaded 13.
In 2012 I uploaded 11.
After I moved, my average was about a drawing a month. Which is terrible.

But... in 2013 there were only 4.
Last year saw only 3.
They were breaking me. I was uninspired, irritable, and broke. This isn't what I moved here for. So in the beginning of December, I left Value Village to become a barista at a little coffee shop. I have closing shifts, which means I can sleep until noon and stay up until 3 or 4am if I want. Already I've uploaded more pictures than I did in the whole of 2014 (if you don't count the TwitchPlaysPokemon sketches in my scraps gallery). I've also gone back to neopets, which always serves as a nice inspiration when ideas are lacking. The beauty contest there gives me a time goal.

I'm inspired again, and it feels good.
Expect more art from me!

(Uh, yeah. Also about that beauty contest thing...)

Hey you! How have you been? I didn't realize I forgot to re-watch you when I moved accounts.

I'm glad things are going well! Life over here has been pretty good, too, aside from the part where all of my USB storage devices decided to simultaneously die last night. But hey, at least I had an excuse to go do some intense digging through old fanart of my characters?

Eeek! That happened to me once... I thought I lost all my digital art, ever. But a friend was able to recover most of it, so I got lucky.

This might seem a completely random question, and I'm sure you've been faced with it enough, but considering you had original art for Nutrinopets; I don't suppose you know what happened to the site? I was browsing through an older account of mine and came across some fanart I'd done and became a bit nostalgic for the site. It's been gone for years though. Aha, if my question is troublesome just ignore me.
