Keep an eye out here for any update on the Mystery Mini-Project I'm working on. If you figure out what it is I'm going to be doing, you're welcome to speculation, I won't confirm or deny any theories until the right time =3 Thanks for your support~! =D

Testing this feature here. Since theO doesn't seem to support the default embed I was given, I've finagled it a little so it will show here. This image will take you to a button that takes you to the page XD

I DID IT! =OvO/=

(Copied from DA, so if you read it there, I didn't change anything... Except this explanation XD)

*happy dance* I FINALLY FIXED MY DESKTOP YESTERDAY! =D *happy sobs*

I hadn't planned on doing it, but this little voice in my mind was like "Hey... you should give it another shot..." It's been a few months since I left it alone when I wasn't getting any power at all, so I had a large break to cool down XD; Took everything out, added more support under the motherboard, carefully checked things were plugged all the way in, and turned it on after every new addition. Powered on well, though I didn't get video like it was before I swapped out the CPU fans.

Since I had a smaller fan in, I decided to try testing out my RAM to see if it booted with one stick. Discovered I did, in fact, have a bad RAM stick. I was only running on 8 GB of working RAM before so it made sense. So I pulled 3 2GB sticks out of my old desktop and put them in the remaining slots, so I have 14GB of working RAM =) *just realized she didn't check the speed of the old RAM* ... =O_O;= I'm sure it'll be fine...

The sad part is... the reason I wasn't getting video was due to my graphics card... After I put in my old one it booted right away with no problems... Even sadder, tho, was that the fan on the old GPU was rusted in place, so it did not have cooling. Fortunately, my brothers kept their old GPUs (which were better than my old one by a bit) so he let me have that one.

Now I have a working desktop =D This means I can not only play my more recent games again, but I can also (hopefully) do art faster because I will have less lag. I love my laptop, but it is getting on in years. It still works pretty darn well all things considered. I just can't play DAI on it =P Or use Rebelle without everything getting EXTREMELY sluggish.

I feel very happy I finally fixed it and also a bit in disbelief because it sat there so long, then my gut tells me, "We're fixing this now!" and I'm just like "Okay, sure buddy." XD

Now I can get back to doing art =)

Likely Won't Make It

Yeaah... That manga contest... Probably not gonna be able to participate =/ I'm still writing out the plot at this point (almost done, I'd like to think another day will do me) and the deadline's July 31st, soooo.... Yah.

That's not to say I won't continue working on the revamp. I can still put it up on Tapastic, and when I do, I'll put the link here =)

Behind, but Still Kicking

So I can't remember if I mentioned I was revamping Fear to Love, but my progress got derailed when I started getting pains in my side and weird numbness. I went to Urgent care, but they didn't find anything life-threatening. I'm just on a balanced diet plan and pain meds until the pains are completely gone.

However, I managed to finish up my character development trees just now, so I can move onto actually writing out the detailed plot tomorrow after work. I might not make the deadline at this rate, but I'm still gonna do it. I got discouraged, but my boyfriend gave me a pep talk and I feel recharged XD He usually makes me feel better when I feel like giving up, so I feel fortunate to have him in my life. =)

I'll have to decide what the style of the manga is going to be, too. I'm definitely gonna try to reel back the heavy shading, because that takes up time XD; I still wonder how some shoujo artists get away with minimal shading, but it still looks natural?? Like what? XD

Anyway, keep rooting for me, ok? =3 Please and thank you XD

Getting Organized

So I've been sorta holding off on new art because of a few events. Was spending my time designing a logo, business cards, and a flyer for my mother because she participated ina craft show.

Also, I recently paid off my first Fingerhut purchase, so now I'm approved for credit. I decided to buy a new bed frame since my box spring is 20+ years old and probably full of DEATH. And since my mattress is maybe almost 15 years old, I'm getting a memory foam mattress from Amazon. Also thinking about getting a couple of 3 shelf units so I can organize all my miscellany. Though that's gonna put quite a punch to my account =>.<= But these are things overdue. I had to buy something on Fingerhut to build some credit. Without that, it'd be kinda hard to get a car or anything. I put off getting a credit card for a long time because I always kinda thought credit cards were synonymous with debt. In a way they are, but it's only really bad if you can't keep up with the payments. So if you're responsible with your credit spending, you shouldn't hurt your score too much. I read as a general rule, it's a good idea to spend no more than 30% of your overall limit. If you go over that, you can pay just enough to bring it below that before the first report goes out. So if you had a limit of $500, you shouldn't spend too much more than $150 at a time. That's maybe 10% of your overall credit score, though and what's most important is making payments on time.

Sorry about the rant, I may be half asleep. But since I've got several days off, I'm gonna focus on straightening up and making room for the new bed things. After that, I'll likely be working on revamping Fear to Love for this Medibang manga contest. If I don't win, it'll be up on Tapastic after July.
