Ah, so, I said I’d explain why things have been slow around here, so I’ll give it a shot. Skip this first paragraph if you aren’t interested. XD I’ll try and super summarize it all for you. -deep breath- So, when I moved, my transfer didn’t go through like I expected. I got weird excuses and explanations from the place I was trying to transfer to so I started looking for a new job. A couple weeks later, my car was stolen… again. Since I never replaced the radio after the last time it was stolen, I figured it was gone for good this time. The little devil turned up a couple weeks later though, a day after I was finally informed that I could transfer my job (For the sake of brevity, I won’t explain that glorious conversation, but I’m looking for a second job…). The people who took the car tried their hardest to mess up the car, without parting it. It’s weird and I’m convinced they wanted me to accidentally blow myself up at a gas station, the way they messed with it. I want to scrap it. My dad’s throwing money at it (repairs are costing more than what it’s worth). We’re butting heads about it. So, I’m also looking for a new car. And this last weekend I had a nice, long family get-together, followed quickly by my first day at work, which was all different kinds of weird. AAND a local sports team has done exceptionally well lately so I’ve gone to many, many games. The half of the family I’m currently with is very big about this team. o3o And then there have been handfuls of other real world nuisances.
That’s the short, sugar-coated version of it, without the more hillarible details. What’s going on this weekend? It’s my birthday, which means requests have opened up again! All of the nitty-gritty details are available on that page. It’s pretty simple and runs like it does every year. You’ve got a couple months to make your request and I will do my best to complete it before this time next year. Your odds of completion are better the sooner you get it in. Please limit yourself to one request. Feel free to ask if you have any questions or concerns!
As far as new layouts go, there’s one new animated Naruto layout. This bugger slowed me down a lot. I wanted to keep it as though the eyes were peering through a void, but I also didn’t want the layout to feel empty. I think the end result is pretty good though. The second userlookup layout is a Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle layout, a request from last year’s cycle.
Hopefully things will wind down and/or fall into place and I’ll be able to update regularly again. However, as it is a special day for me, I will spend much of it celebrating, seeing Star Wars, and dominating DMC. o3o
