Hi everyone. So I figured it's about time I post another journal, to keep everyone updated. I've been around a lot more lately, quietly adding deviations to my +favs, voting in Groups, but still pretty low-key. News in my personal life including trading up on jobs, eliminating about 4 hours a day in commute time, to a job that's a 10-minute drive away. That job also came with a stellar schedule, and substantial pay increase, so It's about as perfect an opportunity as one could wish for in a career. It is NOT perfect. But it's so damn awesome compared to my last job - I have no complaints. Speaking of which, I also moved. My girlfriend and I moved to a condo, which has about 400 square feet more - which is useful given she's got 10 yr old fraternal twin girls to deal with... We pay extra by $200/month, but it's worth it given proximity to our jobs, and the space.
I'm still not making any art, though I have had some ideas floating around in my head... I also might be commissioning someone soon. I'd like to get a Watercolor piece done. I'm looking forward to the new Hobbit movie coming out. I'm slowly reintegrating myself back into the online world, but only in pieces. Which brings me to this new Logo I'm seeing. I think it's progressive, I sorta get it. BUT... I do not like the absence of the 'deviant' aspect to the brand or the logo. I think it fails to completely be inclusive. I also think they should've gray-scaled the UI ASAP, once they released that bright green logo, so that it stands out, and so that we don't have 5,000 colors on this site that are all confusing, and all from different versions. I don't really care for the browse either. It's cumbersome to search by specific gallery for a specific thing.
I'm not listening to any music right now because everyone's still asleep.
ALSO, I've been sick for a couple days, and have a sinus headache. So blech.
