Hello everyone! I apologise for my inactivity this start of September.
Can you believe I hadn't seen my boyfriend in 2 whole months
? Since he had to go back to his old house to work for the Summer, and since I was moving home during that time, we just had to hold on for that long! After all that painful waiting and long, lonely days, it was such a magical experience to finally come together again last week.
It was like no time had passed at all. You know what they say- distance makes the heart grow fonder!
We spent the week playing lots of video games together and seeing old friends. He was also very kind to me and taught me some Actionscript 3.0 in Flash (such a patient teacher- I'm horrifically slow!! -_-) and he also cooked me dinner twice when I got very sick with my M.E. + chest pain
(Darn health problems!) I feel very, very lucky to be with someone so loyal who will love me so much even when my health is never in good condition and after we spent such a long time apart this Summer.*I will stop being such a soppy-face starting now. Promise*
In other news, this year I'm taking a home course about Digital Worlds in games, since that is my career ambition (to be the designer of environments, characters and stylisations in games). I'm also self-teaching myself Actionscript 3, and also trying a new digital art style in Photoshop to broaden my horizons.
Of course, I will also be progressing with my gaming website.
(I really do apologise for making you wait so long for the website, you have all been incredibly forgiving!
My father has only just been able to send me Dreamweaver so everything has been delayed. For now I want to be very realistic and say my gaming website should be complete around the start of next year.
I really thank everyone for your patience. I am always far too ambitious with my deadlines and it is something I really need to get realistic with especially considering my health issues.
And to be honest- I really don't want to rush this project since this website has been a lifelong dream of mine, and I want it to come out just perfect and enjoyable for everybody to play with.
As a thank you to my Contest Prize Winners for their continued patience, I am placing a feature of their works in my Features box this week. Be sure to check them out, these people have got TALENT!!
I hope you are all enjoying the closing of Summer as school terms begin and Autumn begins to bring a dash of vivid colours to our landscapes.
Have a great weekend and see you soon!
Lots of love and huggles,
