No point in saying "it's been a while" when you can't even remember the date of the last journal entry you posted.
I do have a good excuse for my absence from DA for...months. I just completed my Associate's Degree this month, and had the commencement ceremony last Saturday. Things got crazy towards the end of April, and with 6 classes all having something due at the start of May, there wasn't much time to do anything else. I do have plans to transfer and go for that Bachelor's degree, but right now I'm catching up on everything else.
Of all the places I lurk, right now Tumblr is holding my attention, so if you want to follow me there: clearwillow.tumblr.com I'll still add stuff here, but it might take some time. I'm also on Redbubble and Zazzle; a google search of 'Clearwillow' ought to bring up the links. That's another thing I'm planning to get to, is compiling a list of all the places I can be found.
So that's what's been going on with me. Still here, just not as frequent as I once was, but with no intentions of going anywhere.
