a digital wasteland

It's been a full week since anyone last posted and so I think this would be the optimal opportunity to make my grand re-entrance. Cue the trumpet fanfare.

Okay, I suppose one sickly kazoo will do. Whatever.

I survived this semester. This may not sound like an impressive feat for some of you (yeah, I know you went through school too, and you probably did it with three full-time jobs, taking care of five cats, three dogs, and your grandmother, and yet you still never neglected your blogs. I know. Good for you.) but for me, it was a very taxing schoolyear. Two semesters of subsisting on 4 hours or less sleep a night with 8 am classes just wasn't good for sanity. But that's all over and done with now. Next semester I start at 10 every morning.

What have I been working on so much, you ask? Good question. You can actually see some of what I've been bleeding over. After years of neglect and half-assed maintenance & states of partial completeness, I have finally constructed a new personal site. (I know it has a lot of cross-browser issues and just crazy stuff & is still kind of skeletal, but I did it as a class project on using Dreamweaver.)

So after surviving school, I did something yesterday I've been talking about for about the past six years. It was a somewhat impulsive decision and I'm sure the money with which I purchased this item could have been diverted elsewhere, but fuckit, it was time for a me purchase.

So what was this purchase? A guitar. It's pretty and blue-green... it's a Samick acoustic with pickup. My interest in music has been reawakening lately. My life used to center around it, but I went a couple years without touching my violin (and promptly went batty in the head.) So I've been reviving that along with all things musical. Do I play guitar? Well... I know three chords. So that's enough to start a band, right?

Keep an eye out for the SnaggleBand, touring soon!

Wow, You're only two years into the design program and you have work that good? That's impressive.

He is only two years into the graphic design program, but he has been in college since 1973.

Hey, sir, I think you spent more time in college than I will.

Thanks for the compliment, MrBlank. I just wish my instructors thought the same way...
