Oh look, it's me.

1. Thanks anon, for paying for my LJ. It was awesome of you. I'm super grateful.


2. Thanks lady_sarai for the cute v-gift. Baby otters are among my favorite things in the world.


3. Hello new friends! I swear I say that every post. Where are you all COMING from?


4. I think I'm caught up on comments. If I've missed something, PM me.


5. Does anyone have a link to a good free image editing program? I need some icons and I hate begging for them. It's time I got off my ass and made some of my own. Help, tips and pointers would be awesome, if anyone has time.


6. I think I'm taking a break from fandom, just for a little while. I've been feeling anti social lately. I need some Boo time, or something. I want to work on finishing up some projects. I'll be back when I'm feeling more up to it.


7. This was an insanely boring post. To make up for it, here are some more adorable baby otters:

Well I don't know if this is what you're looking for but these are the steps that aiyokusama gave me for making icons. I hope it helps.

I'll miss you on the break though I hope it refreshes you.

One more link for you rai_daydreaming did a Roy/Tim picture for me, thought you would like it.

You know what, that's exactly what I was looking for. I knew someone posted something about it forever ago, but I couldn't remember who, where or what. I suck.

I got a pile more icons when my LJ was renewed. I have ten empty slots. I can think of a few icons that I want. I hate digging around for them. I'm crap at making them but it's about time I stop sucking at it.

Yeah, I hate this time of year. It saps me of everything even remotely useful.

Tim's beautiful in that picture. You're lucky! Thanks for linking me. <3

OOOOOOOOOOOOOTTERS. *snorgles them*

Hi. :D

I'm not at all sure what a snorgle is, but I'm absolutely certain it is something that should, nay must, be done to baby otters.

*kisses* Hey Rex, how are you?

I use GIMP for all my images. Free, pretty easy to use, and especially good for simple things like icons. :D

Don't blame you for needing a little fandom hiatus. I've been on a little break myself lately, since everything from the holidays finally caught up with me.

*snugs lots*

Awesome. Thanks, Saavs. I'll check it out. You always make such nice icons and banners. I wish I had your eye for these things. I'm awful at it. :(

Yeah seriously. I've just been feeling DRAINED lately. I think it might be lack of sunlight or something. I go to work at dawn and get home at dusk. It's insane. I need one of those full spectrum light bulbs or something.

*snugs back* Good luck recovering. I'm trying my best too.

Also, thanks for the Card. It was sweet. <3

OH MY GOODNESS THOSE OTTERS ARE SO CUTE!! I freaking ADORE otters!

::Hugs:: You do what you need to do, babe. Fandom will be waiting patiently and with open (and excited) arms when you're feeling more social. We all go through those phases. I was totally there a few weeks ago (I was between jobs at the time, so it was hard to get excited about anything. Silly state politics and it's reorganizing efforts, bah!)

Take some time for you, get what you have to get done, and know that we're all sending you support and warm wishes! :D

Oh man, I love them too. I first time I saw one in the wild I actually cried because I was so happy. <3

*hugs back* Sometimes real life is absolutely draining and soul sucking. This is one of those times.

I'm sorry about your job. I know exactly how fickle state politics can be. Did you manage to find a new job, or did you just get moved to a different one?

Thanks, I appreciate it. It's nice to know that no one's pissed about be going MIA for a while. I know no one here is like that, but it's still nice to hear.

Aw, I missed you! Glad you made a post! *hugs*

Take a break, this is important thing, I think.

It's 5:53 am, I'm hyperactive now because I have an exams at 12pm and I'm still studying! (Am I stupid or what >Д<) Just hope I'll have 2 hours for sleep or I'll kill my professor...

Study hard! Then come home and CRASH HARD!

*hugs!* I thought you could use a baby otter. Baby otters make everything better. And I tooooootally feel you on the fandom hiatus thing. I've been kind of quiet and anti-social myself lately.

Jan. 14th, 2011 03:13 am (UTC)
I totally could. You read my mind and gave me something I didn't even know I needed. <333

I think everyone's burnt out, man. From all the fic exchanges and holiday craziness and stuff. LJ's been pretty dead.

I just don't feel like DOING anything. It's not just fandom either. Some guy asked me to go out with him this weekend and I could not blow him off fast enough. ALSO, I wussed out and didn't go to work at the food bank tonight. The roads are bad but it still probably that makes me a terrible person. :(

Maybe it's the time of year. We both need some SUN.

You did. Are you still sick?

I have another fucking headache. Maybe it's from being on the damn computer all day.

They had me doing interviews for fucking Harvard on health care reform today. There is nothing I hate more than republicans, idiots and assholes. I spoke with FAR too many of them today.

Fucking Harvard.

{{{BOO}}} Heres a Big Mama huggle with holding, rocking and loving murmurs to love you up with. I am so glad that you recogized the need to regroup and refocus when you need too. I belong to that strange tribe called nurses who generally work until they wake up on the wrong side of a stethescope XD. Go baby, you do you until you feel the energy to come back. We'll still be here.

I'll do my best. Let's hope it helps. I've been feeling a little down on my self lately, writing wise.

Aren't otters just the cutest things ever? <3333

Well, there's Gimp but some one might have already mentioned it. You just have to google Gimp and then you get it from their site for free. It's what I use to draw.

I'll download it tonight and give it a shot. Hopefully I'll be able to figure it out. Maybe I should dig around for some tutorials too.

I know I'm way super late to the party, but no worries if you're thinking about taking a fandom break~

I'd be really interested to read some of your original works, considering what a good job you do with this whole writing thing.

Now I am late to the party. :D

I'm actually TEMPTED to write some original stuff for this online zine. I'll let you know if I work up the nerve. Maybe I can run it by you first so you can let me know if it's AWFUL or not?
