It's been quite some time since I posted here -- and my, how life has moved on, and on, and on. Three years and a few weeks since my last journal entry, and in that time I've left the PhD program with a Masters (decided I was tired of school, wanted to move on with my life, needed a change of pace, and the concentration was not inspiring me -- in short, I lacked the passion to complete the PhD in the topic I was studying, so I left), started dating and married the love of my life (Katie!), had my first child (who is now over a year old!), took on a full-time job in New York, moved to a nice neighborhood, upgraded cars, ... in short, literally everything about my life is transformed.
It also explains in no small way the lack of time I've had for the DeviantArt community, although there are many here that I still think of and remember fondly. I'm sure if you stumble on this journal and recall my name you'll be surprised by what I've said!
Regardless, of course no guarantee I'll be back in any capacity, but I'm up and sleepless and figured what better use of my time then to drop a line to my old friends and colleagues on DeviantArt. I trust you are all hale and well, and that the transformations in your lives have been equally full of happiness as mine. Good night, and take care.
