Can this be? Am I actually- *gasp* - updating MY OWN JOURNAL?!

Yes. Yes, I am. and that's all I'm going to say about that, because it'll drive me crazy otherwise and maybe push me away again, unconsciously, which is Not A Good Thing.

Anyway, since I tend to get wordy, the majority of this will be behind a cut (woo!), but after I'm done, there will be a bullet-point listy-thing here of the main points ~>
A) new college, need new computer, and new kitteh fun!
B) I'm going to work my arse off and put up a graphics post with all my backed up stock images. LINKS to my work are under the relevant cut!
C) I LOVE THE TREK FANDOM, it and its many GQMFs members make me full of squee.
D) If you're into RPS with Chris Pine/ Zach Quinto, or Star Trek fics in general, join/read ontd_pinto, st_respect, ontd_startrek and pinto_fic. They bring the love, srsly.
E) I may be writing fic soon, I just need plot bunnies. Maybe a look at a meme or three?
F) I'm on Twitter! @Anodreth if you'd like to follow me. :D

For those that don't know (most of you? I think so...) I'm currently going to Savannah Tech for a networking specialist's associates degree (boy, that was a mouthful) and am half- to three quarters of the way through. *throws confetti* It is awesome- I am currently making programs my bitches and learning what IP addresses actually MEAN and how to make cables. Geeky much? I don't care. :P

I was going to SCAD, but monetary situations as they were told me I needed to leave, which kinda left a small hole in my heart- I really love that school and graphic/ad/web design and photography. I still do it- run my own freelance business, in fact- but I know it's not going to be as good as what it would be had I continued there. Maybe once I'm employed, I can go for my Master's? *want*

Secondly, my main computer is a Mac laptop. However, the poor thing is only steps away from convalescence, and I fully expect it to expire with a dreadful groan any day now. Luckily, my birthday's in...two? months, and a new laptop or funds for one is pretty much the only thing I want.

Third, I got a second kitty! He's so adorable- part Maine Coon and part Himalayan. I love him to bits, but my older kitty thinks very low of him, and continues to hiss if he even thinks about going in the vicinity of Herself. Only week three though, so I'm hopeful.

So, I miss Photoshop. Even though I use it practically every day for site design, current circumstances leave everything feeling repetitive and generally lacking in creativity. Provided things go alright, I plan to devote a couple days (because I have no life) to getting to know her again and appease her wrath of not-using-fullest-potential and such.

What does this mean? Well, for anyone interested (does anybody still read this? o.O *cringe*) I will be posting icons, banners, wallpapers, and maaaybe macros for: Doctor Who, Star Trek (mostly Reboot, I don't have enough source material for the others yet), Torchwood, Pinto (!!), Merlin (I think? Have to check my resources again), any of the actors from the above fandoms, and a couple original creations to get the juices flowing and all. I TAKE REQUESTS! Love them, actually- gives me something to do and makes me really happy. :) Soo, I'm going to do my best to get a bunch of stuff out by next week- if I make enough, I'll post in batches of ten or thereabouts before then. Examples of my work for your viewing pleasure ~> My Photobucket: Icons and General Stuff Feel free to take whatever, but PLEASE credit me, and don't hotlink. Hotlinking makes bandwidth pandas sad. Thanks! < / PSA >

Um...I've kinda been inundated with ficcage since I entered the fandom, which is fantastic! But these people especially have made a big impact on me through it, and I'm beyond grateful for their genius!

nightshadow_t2 (!!! *massive hugs*), therumjournals, roseandheather, greenappleseas, the_deep_magic, ohcaitlynne, hilsongirlhalfbreedchild, andieshep, vapid_wastrel, 1297, beedlebarg, whiteraven_1606, acacia123, mizubyte, lifebehindadesk, desertale, eames, ginnyqoa, tresca, adoorhasopened, smutjunkie, and, and, and....oh crap, I don't remember any more! There's a bunch, a BUNCH, and most of them have written knock-your-socks-off-it's-so-mindblowingly-good fic! Go read! :D

Special shout-out to the members of uss_mcspirk and st_respect - Ship Solidarity! :)

It may have been passe or a faux pas to do a list like that, but I don't care! I LOVE YOU ALL! (and all of you not in Trekdom as well!) <3333 *cough*

I'm hoping to get some fic written soon, and sensing my leanings lately, it's probably going to be in Trek/ Trek RPS. After my graphics, though, and once I find some plot bunnies and am attacked inspired. I really love writing, and I don't get to do it near as often as I'd like. So there's probably going to be some of that :D

I think that's all for now- see ya soon! :)

*hugs back* The fandom is awesome, trufax!

Aww, thanks! <3 Your companion!icon always lets me know that there's going to be a reason to grin insanely at the happy that (insert post / comment / fic here) contains.

Okay, anything in particular you want- angsty, fluffy, happy, determined, etc? *steers clear of Doomsday a bit-ish* Wallpaper, banner, icon? Ee, this is so exciting! Hehe.

Cool pinto beans! Just let me know what you decide on. ;)

IKR? I reject Doomsday's canon and substitute my own!

OMG, thank you so much for the shoutout :-D and yes, this fandom (these fandoms?) kick ass!

also, i'm jealous that you're in savannah. i want to go there.

also, i'm totally feeling the need for some pintolicious wallpaper or layout thingy for my journal but i wouldn't even know what to do with it. i'm terrible at all things graphic :-/

You're very welcome! It's the least I could do- fandom would be a sad place without you. *hugs* It (they?) truly do[es]. :D

Savannah is sooo pretty right around now, especially downtown!! Though it's been really humid lately. Still, you should totally come! I think halfbreedchild is the closest to me geographically, maybe? there aren't that many people around here into trek and such :(

Ooh, I could do a Pinto-in-NYC wallpaper for you! Or...do you have any photos of them that are your absolute favorites? I could do one incorporating those...or both? XDD What size screen resolution do you have?
May. 18th, 2010 01:11 am (UTC)
we were supposed to do a southern road trip to savannah, but then my husband had to get knee surgery. bummer. PAULA DEEN, I AM COMING TO YOUUUUUU....EVENTUALLY!

ooh, can you do, like, lj layouts? wait, no, i had an idea for a wallpaper! but it's not pinto...could you do something with captain kirk (CP obvs) and captain jack sparrow? ummm, okay, screen resolution, ummmmmm.....1280 x 854? is that it? i think that's it. (see, i wasn't kidding, i know nothing about this stuff!)
May. 18th, 2010 03:14 am (UTC)
That is a bummer! How's your husband doing now?

I'm sure she'll be happy to see you- she's very gracious with fans, and a little quieter than her TV persona. And omg yay, come visit! That would be awesome!

I can code LJ layouts- what did you have in mind? The Captains idea sounds perfect! How do you feel about Whitman as well? I can make a couple sizes, no worries! *brain starts churning out ideas*
May. 21st, 2010 01:38 am (UTC)
ahhh, i've been meaning to reply to this comment for like three days!

i would love a pinto lj layout most of all :-) i don't even care what it looks like! (doesn't have to be black background like my current one or anything) and if you're still into the wallpaper idea, whitman is awesome, and yeah. i leave it to your creative and graphic skillz :-D and i will pay you back. with porn. or something :-)
May. 21st, 2010 02:07 am (UTC)
ee, yay! I've an idea for the wallpaper that will probably get hammered out tonight and brought for your enjoyment early in the morning, but possibly sooner depending on how fast my graphic-muse pushes me to work. Exciting! I'll work out the coding after that ;)
May. 21st, 2010 09:48 am (UTC)
It's up! :D here.

Hope you enjoy! Let me know if you'd like a different size.

(I should also be able to at least get a header done for that layout later today, if nothing else. But I think I'll get more than that done.)
