I don't think I've been back to DeviantArt since sometime in December.
Daaaamn. D:

It's also started to hit, just how long it's been since I sat down and drew something.
It's been a year. I've been keeping up with photography and jewelry making, at least,
so I'm not at a complete loss. But it's still sad to think about, considering that before I started working, I would draw ALL THE TIME.

So, a quick update. I'm now a full-timer at work, and Nature's Market manager to boot. So now I really don't have a life, lol. The good news? Bigger paycheck. The bad news? No more floral (since apparently being a manager in one department, while working in another, is frowned upon). I'm kind of considering going back to part time again, though. I really, REALLY don't enjoy the manager position, at all. I miss floral. I didn't even want the position in the first place; but I guess nobody cared what I thought. And it's been tough on both my department and the floral department since they made this switch, not to mention they made it at the worst possible time; the holidays. x_x

I don't know; we'll see how it all works out. Right now, I'm just trying to hold out until the 25th, when I'll HOPEFULLY be taking a nice long vacation, far away from the grocery store. I'm planning to go to Florida on the 26th with the family for a week (we wanted to go for Christmas, but I already know I'll have to work Christmas Eve). I may even start looking for another job. I don't know. I started at one point, but I'm afraid that everything right now is seasonal. I don't want to drop a fairly secure, full-time job for one that I'll probably end up losing after Christmas is over... even if that likely seasonal job is at some amazing place, like a craft store. <3

So anyway, I'm still alive, but I guess I'm still taking this long break from DA... without meaning to. XD Sheesh.

Do you remember me?

In Aug 22, 2005 You wrote me this:
"I have no idea what language you speak. My spanish teacher says that people in Brazil speak Spanish, but then my friend says they speak portuguese... maybe they speak both.. not sure ^"

I remember you, a little... I have saved here in my computer a photo of your 2 cats.
Sorry for the vanishiment (?) - Lol...Theres so much time I don't speak/write in English.

I'm "brazilian" (brasileiro, we say here) and we speak portuguese-BR (portuguÍs brasil)... ... Tell to your teacher, if you keeps contat with her, that she was wrong.

... I don't know how much you know about me.
But I got very happy when I read(I forgot the verb to read in past form,sorry) your message.

lol...
So sorry for all this time.

Ps.: I never had seen a picture of yours before... Very cute!

A big Hug.

Of course I remember you. =D How have you been?

I found out later that my teacher was in fact, very wrong. I don't keep in touch with her, though. She was my teacher in California, but I left California in 2007. I'm not sure if she's even still teaching there.

It's nice to hear from you again. Hugs!

PS - the past form of "read" is still "read", so you got it right. It's just said differently; like "red".

I love your photography of the palm with its organic spiral shape. I too notice the shapes that nature gives us. Thanks for contributing! (haven't had a chance to view your other work but I will asap);{>
