Before I start, let me say that the reason I am taking a temporary break from dA is not so much because of what happened, but for several months now I have planned this holiday and will be going on Wednesday...so for a long time, I will have minimal internet access and won't be responding to comments, faves etc as effectively as I do now. My Dad there only has dial-up, and answering comments and full-viewing deviations is the WORST on that
my only other option would be to visit an internet cafe sometimes, but some places charge like - $2 for just half an hour, and I'm not forking out bucketloads just to be on here
Oh well, I'll spend more time outdoors and with my Dad and best friend who moved there anyway, like normal
But I guess I needed a break anyway, even though what happened the past two days is history now, I feel as if this place does stress me out at times anyway. Plus a lot of real-life problems and stresses ever since this demon 2009 began only added to that and I just snapped...simple as that.
It started when there was just problem after problem when trying to buy Vue 7, first my order got screwed up, then Paypal screwed me over with their incompetence which meant that not only couldn't I buy Vue with PayPal, but they also CHARGED me a needless $50 that I tried to get back, but "they aren't responsible" so I lost $50 for nothing!
then there was download and internet issues, then other problems activating it...To top it off, it wouldn't even run on my laptop because it was obsolete!!!
BUT! something good came out of this, my family decided that before I go (since if I decided to move in with my Dad, I may not come back) they would buy me a new laptop, my 21st birthday present 6 months in advance. It has four times the RAM and around30 times more memory dedicated to graphics alone, so maybe creating art should be much faster and more fun too
(not that I'll be able to upload anything for a while)
This is getting long now, there's much more I'd like to add but I know people have their own lives to attend to. All I can say now is that I really, really appreciate all the supoort I got recently, many advised me to delete that journal since it will only make things worse. Normally I wouldn't delete something with so many nice comments attatched to it, But I guess its for the best. I still read every single comment first though, but replying to them all will take days with how busy I am, hope you understand
Since I can't thank everyone personally, or even feature them all, I guess I can give something back to the community, maybe through stocks and/or tutorials. Will give me something to think about while I'm gone
Well, that's it. Don't know how much dA-time I'll have from tomorrow onwards. I might journal if I get the chance, but only if its something of significant importance.
