It's been far too long to care, but now I'm back. I'm now situated with a new desk that's been graciously handed to me and some new hardware to work with. I dumped my crappy footwarmer of a laptop on my little brother and bought a used laptop with more space and horsepower to work with. I also bought a new printer scanner sometime ago for $50. great deal as it's a next to high end HP all in one that would've been $125 under normal circumstances. I just unboxed it this weekend and I'm pleased.
now I just need to wait until my house expansion is finished so I can move some of the furniture that isn't mine so that I can have more space to unload my art supplies and to get a drawing table and replace my ott light.
