Burning Bridges

(This is funny if you know who I used to room with.)

(Well. I think it’s funny.)

(Oh, shut up.)


Ahem. Anyway. Let me present you to a typical day in my life. (There is a point, I swear. Yes, there’ll be a tl:dr; at the end. Skip ahead if you want.)

I go to work at five in the morning, and get home a bit after two. Then I have a quick dinner before I drive 40 mins out of the city to go skiing with my two dogs. We typically stay out for a couple of hours, depending on what we’re working on, but it is far and few between the days where we put anything less than 15 km behind us. Then I drive back to the city, pick up something to eat, and go to the local dog club/meet up with friends to train with the Border Collie, whom I compete in obedience and tracking with.
Afterward I tend to stay with a friend or two, going for a short walk with our dogs so they can run off-leash and stretch out properly after the day. Then I drive home, feed myself and the dogs, and head to bed.

Do you notice what’s lacking in this picture? 

Yeah. Free time.


I’m betting you see the point now. I could, of course, be around more. I could spend more time on art, I could be involved in the community, I could be online and chatting with people again.

But I don’t really want to. I used to be outdoorsy and active, but life happened, and I self-medicated on the internet. Fast, easy and not at all healthy for me. For me. There are plenty of people whose life is enriched by their online communities, but alas, I am not one of them. It does not help me achieve my goals, and it does not make me happy.

So there you have it! Off I go. I’ve uninstalled irc and skype. I still have my gchat for those of you whom I’ve been chatting with there, but that’s about all I’m keeping.

(I don’t even watch the show anymore - haven’t since s02. The ATG-alumni-guys are the sole reason I’m still here. But..yeah.)


I’m not saying I wont be back - who knows where life takes me - but I know I’m happier when I’m not online, so I’m gonna go do that. Not be online. With my favorite guys:

tl:dr; I’m leaving, bye! Look at my doggies, they are amazing! Also our naure beats yours, hah.

"Nope", the anime.

Based on that hilarious text post.

Sorry I’m late today, guys. There was this blizzard, and it knocked out my power, so I couldn’t answer any questions. But I woke up early to draw something to complain about it~!
All snow is Night Flurry's fault, that's what I've decided. It has nothing to do with the fact that I live in a drafty, crumbling castle with questionable holes in the roof~

Heeeey :(

"A nomad’s life for me", she said, then turned around and bought a laptop.

Back to my roots: a nomad’s life for me.

(This is funny cause I’m sami. Nomadic and all, gettit? …fine, fine I’ll stop, don’t look at me like that.)

Ahem. Anyway. I am currently sort of homeless and crashing at my parents until I can find a new place to live. I have two dogs and live in Mordor, so tjis might take a while.

It’s great fun, I tell you. Most of my crap is in an attic, stored away, and I’m refuced to living out of my car (almost), soo my point being: there is no longer a computer in my life.

This means no skype, hangouts/gchats, irc, tumblr, twitter and most importantly: no art. All I have is a phone that is broken and have to be sent in for repairs, and a sketchbook.

I am a bit unsure where life is headed from hereon. I’ve applied to some jobs with the intent of letting me move further north (SNOW FOR THE SNOWGOD(dess)), so I have no idea when thud situation will be more online-y and less ludditelike. (NOT EVEN A PHONE COME ON WORLD)

Memo to self: save up for a friggin laptop.

So yes! See you when I see you, I guess. Spades, I’m charging you with keeping lunar company in my absence. Kuto, DRAW A COMIC ALREADY. Kits, keep on horrifying the world.

/logs off and braves the offline world.
