OK, enough nonsense. This is what I posted on my comic site to explain my long hiatus:
Graduation: This was a huge mess that spanned months and was a real hassle. I had to visit a psychologist to prove why I couldnt handle taking foreign language classes. What I learned taught me a lot about myself and why I have some of the problems that I do (many that affect my efforts with my comic, too). I learned that I have a math disorder that disrupts my ability to estimate time effectively (yeah that happens with this comic a lot). I also have both a reading AND a writing disorder, which explains my spelling errors. The doctor thought that was ironic, considering how Im an English major. She also thought it was weird that I only had an average memory but my vocabulary was better than 99% of tested people in my age and education bracket. I also have an auditory discriminatory disorder, which explains why I have such a hard time understating people sometimes when they talk to me, hearing on the phone, or hearing dialogue from the TV. In addition, I also process information much slower than the average person, which slows down everything I do. In spite of all this, I still have a very high IQ! ^_^ If it werent for these brain anchors, Id be at genius level. Im satisfied with being on the superior level, though, so Im not too bummed. Im just jazzed that Im smarter than I thought I was. All this was certainly enough to deal with the whole foreign language problem, and as of August 2007, I am a proud graduate of the University of Washington! ^_^
Moving: I moved to Utah this summer. This was a BIG DEAL. I had to clean and pack for weeks. I havent moved since I was five or something. Now Im getting ready to move again, but its just a short ways away so its not as big of a deal. That first move was a NIGHTMARE. >_<
Injury: I injured my neck back in the end of August. BADLY. The fourth vertebrae is still out of joint. I was in serious pain for a few months and since then I have occasional bouts of pain that make me want to lie down and not move. This is a serious setback for an artist since working on my strip or other art aggravates the injury. I have no idea when Ill get better.
Employment: I HAVE A JOB! I got it back in September. I do data entry. No, this does not help my neck any. >_< Its not up my education level but its just temporary so I can build a resume.
Miscellaneous reasons of questionable importance: Theres been other stuff too and Id be lying if I tried to pretend that all my hiatus reasons were good ones. I did do a bit of goofing off, such as getting involved with insanely long shows (Babylon 5 DVDs and the fansubbed Once Piece anime) that I just couldnt stop watching. My bad.
On the up side, I now have the Adobe Creative Suite 3 Master Collection! I have a whole STUDIO on my computer! And my new computer rocks, by the way. We've named it Dark Knight 'cuz it looks like the Batmobile. ^_^
My twin sis! And her friend (and mine by proxy): And another friend
