It has been a crazy week full of ups & downs, but my big news is that I was FINALLY able to purchase a (refurbished) laptop, which means I can finally devote more time to getting down with some art that requires some heavy-duty computer processing power.
Except that I don’t have a lot of time at the moment — my big move to the west coast is only about 5 weeks away. Between now and then, I still have a TON of stuff to do.
