Hello dA. I haven't updated my journal in literally months. Whoops. xD I honestly don't have much to talk about so I'll probably just do a bunch of features again, but I wanted to kind of update you guys on my life and stuff too so here ya go:
This semester has been extremely hectic for me: schoolwork stuff, a halloween party at my school that I had to help with, various other personal problems, etc. I've been extremely stressed out and scared and worried and whatever else and it's been hard for me to get myself to do much of anything besides school stuff and like one manip here and there. I made a skin for RLTW last month but aside from that I've done next to nothing on there and I feel horrible because Nirvana is Dark Queen and I want her to start doing some cool things but I've just been inactive as hell and it's just UGH... an issue. Dx
In other news, my 26k kiriban was caught by =del-rae
and I made a manip of her gorgeous charr Heartflight!
Oh, this is kind of random but if you're looking for a no-distractions writing program, like maybe if you're doing NaNoWriMo or something, check out Ommwriter
. It's available for purchase on their website and it's also available in the App Store if you have a Mac. It's $4.99 if you get it in the app store and it's like $5.11 minimum on the website but they give you the option to pay more as like a donation kind of. The only issue I had with getting it from the website (that's what I did first until I found it in the app store) is that the email they're supposed to send you with installation links and such takes a while to get there. If you buy it from there and it doesn't show up within like 24 hours, I'd send them a direct email (the contact form on their site didn't work for me). The application itself is really cool. It goes full-screen and you can choose between a bunch of different backgrounds and there's really calming pretty music that plays and you have like 6 or 7 tracks to choose from and you have a few font choices and you can even pick from 7 keyboard clicky sounds that are really cool too. It's a really good thing to have if you're ever sad and just want to barf out all of your feelings or if you're trying to write poetry and you keep getting distracted or if you're trying to write a big thing or even just do some brainstorming and you can't seem to focus. I'll be using it as kind of a diary probably, but I'm gonna try to use it for poetry too. You can save the files as .txt and .pdf formats so you can even print these if you'd like. And you can always copy and paste whatever you've written into an actual word document or something once you're done so you can have more text formatting options and such. But yeah so there's Bef's software recommendation for the day! xD
Now for a few features!
These are from really good manip artists who have under 300 followers who really REALLY deserve more: =impassioned-dreams *Falony =BlueHorseStudios
Seriously, though, I can't believe *Falony
only has like 200-something watchers. GO FOLLOW HER RIGHT NOW I AM SERIOUS. She is just as good as a lot of extremely popular horse manip artists on dA, and she really deserves some more recognition because her art is AMAZING. <333
But yeah so that's all I have to say for now.
I have no idea when I'm going to reopen commissions but please DO NOT ask me to do art trades right now. To those of you who already have, when I have time again I will be messaging you about what you'd like for the trade, and I have all of your names written down, so I'm not gonna forget, I promise. xD
I love you all!- Bef
