I know I said that I would probably be on more during Christmas break, but that wasn't the case. I just was busy with other things or on other sites. I just didn't feel like coming on here. I'm starting to pick at my inbox again. I've got journals and deviations going back to last fall in it. I'll get caught up eventually, at least with the journals. My artwork inbox might take a little longer. I've been meaning to update my journal for a little while now, but I'm just getting around to it now. What else is new, right?
Christmas was fun. One of my gifts was GTA V. I haven't played it yet, as once I had picked up my room and got my Xbox 360 set up, I only had a few days left of Christmas break and I spent a couple of those with friends. I'll play it when I have enough time at home. Maybe during March break if I go home that week. It was my first Christmas without my aunt, but at the time I didn't really notice until the family was opening up the gifts we all gave each other. Since my aunt wasn't around, there were none from her. As my mom had pointed out a few months ago, it's something when someone dies, and it doesn't have much affect on how things are going in your life. You see, my aunt had become quite reclusive for the past number of years, especially after she stopped driving. Sometimes she'd walk over to the house if the weather was nice and she did a few things at the church, but otherwise she mainly kept to herself. Often she didn't even answer the phone. Of course, it's still sad that she's gone, but since I didn't see her very much for a while, sometimes I have to pause for a moment to remember she died. But let's not make this whole journal a downer.
For those of you awaiting the next part of Demon Dentistry, it's still not yet finished. I need to get around to doing that. I haven't been working on any poetry lately either. I really need to start being more creative again. I've got some unfinished works, but alas, they remain unfinished.
I got a few iTunes gift cards for Christmas. About 60 dollars worth, and I've used it all already (except for like 14 cents). That, along with the iTunes card I finally used last summer after holding on to it for a few years, got me:
Opheliac (Deluxe Edition) (2006/2009)
Liar/Dead is the New Alive (2007)
Then and Again (2004)
To the Bottom of the Sea (2008)
Riding a Black Unicorn Down the Side of an Erupting Volcano While Drinking from a Chalice Filled With the Laughter of Small Children (2011)
Best of Mylene Farmer, Vols. 1 & 2 (2011)
Also I noticed that yesterday was my 7th anniversary of being on this site. It's been a long time. High school feels so far away now.
