So... I had no idea it has been that long since I wrote a journal post or even...posted anything on here, but apparently it has been. 

So much has happened since then. Things are still not in order. It's been an extremely rough year, and when things start to look up, they kind of crash down again. (though maybe it's the lack of medication talking, lol!)

To keep it short, we lost our home. Spent months packing everything up and finding somewhere else to live. Currently renting, but dare I say I love this place perhaps a little more than our old home. SO much more room! There are things I still miss there, but this is definitely a nice place. It is just taking forever to get the time to unpack everything and get it situated to how I like it. I've gotten a job promotion, so finally working full time hours. The money is definitely great right now, but of course I'm still not finding a lot of time to spend on my hobbies. I can keep hoping that I may still get back into the swing of things, but at the moment its rare for me to get the time to go out and take photos of my dolls. Or anything for that matter, especially with the professional camera. I do, however, have an Instagram account now, and remain fairly active on there. Taking cellphone shots are just so much easier and quicker, and I like the Instagram community. So if anyone is interested in following me on there and also have an Instagram account, feel free to let me know! You'll find me as thegrinningfox :).

Last but not least I got a puppy this year. He is now seven months old and still a major pain in the ass, but still very well loved. I've always wanted a dog and it took a long time to finally get one, and couldn't be happier, for the most part! Lol :XD:. He is, after all, a puppy yet, and drives me insane. Has much training to still go through, but it's an adventure for the both of us. 

Anyway, I hope to get things rolling again, I really do. I'm hoping I can boost my motivation and become active again. Only time will tell, I think. 

Thanks for reading!

Another year, another birthday.

You should consider slowing your aging process by traveling at near-light speed, that way your birthdays only technically come once every 50-80 years (depending on how close to light speed you're going).

That, or you should just have a happy birthday, because you're awesome. ^_^ I hope things have been getting better since September (the last update I remember from you). And if you ever want to talk, you can always send me a message or whatever. I promise I'm not all that bad. ;)

Thank you so much ;3; :heart:!

Hey Foxy Loxy (which I'm only calling you because you liked it last time ;D).

Happy C-C-C-C-COMBO BIRTHDAY! =D Hope all is well with you. Seems like I almost never see you around anymore (but that's probably my fault).
the-grinning-fox Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
Thank you!

Nah, I'm still around, I just haven't had anything to update with yet. Mostly been waiting for my new doll to get completed. Plus a lot of things going on at home right now.

Thank you very much for the Happy Birthday, though c:.

Hey, anytime ;D Even when it's not your birthday.

Hey Foxy Loxy (or whatever name you prefer).

Hope you're doing well, and that things are looking up for you finally. Just wanted to stop by and say you're still remembered and missed. ^_^
the-grinning-fox Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Lol, I find that a cute name. :heart:

Thank you for thinking of me and wondering how I am, though! Things are alright, just a lot of stuff going on. Work has actually been giving me more hours, and it's been tiring me out. But things are beginning to improve at least and I'm hoping to get myself back onto here soon!
Felanore Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Glad you like it ;D

Also, of course I think of you! You're an awesome person with super cool art! Exclamation point triad!
I'm glad to hear about more hours for you though =D I know that was a big thing for a long time for you. And no matter how long it takes, just so long as you eventually make it back both I and the rest of your adoring fanbase will be waiting ;)
Felanore Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Well, it seems I've done it again.

Merry birthday in 2014!
