It's been a long time coming, but unobviously I finished my Big Important Life-Killing Exams two months ago (has it been two months? All that build-up for nothing), and am now waiting tentatively for Results Day, which would be another story to be posted on DA when it comes.
See, people, there is one bad thing about having a hiatus and that it's weaning yourself off the thing you are hiatus-ing. Checking DA is starting to fall out of habit; mainly because right now, personally, my art life is flourishing in Tumblr, and in the most unexpected of places, Facebook (SORRY, but getting to be friends with tons of local industry professionals (some renowned) and having an equal relationship with them?? That's too good!). My friends, who I spent 6 years of DA-ting together, have fallen out of this place as well, so much less reason if there's no stimulating conversation to be held.
But anyway, I make it a point to upload stuff whenever I can, so today is one of those days. I hovered my cursor over the 'Submit Art' button expecting at least the same old, still functional image uploader, but then not expecting the really surprising, unfitting, troublesome uploader that greeted me.
OK, I was like: this page looks uglier now. Only because the rest of DA doesn't look like it, and there's too many buttons that clutters up the page. I have no problem with that. I don't frequent DA much anymore. So I upload my recent deviation - Heritage. Ok, no sweat. Casually adding my description and ticking the required boxes with the relevant options. Which is when I found out how un-functional and troublesome it is afterwards. Uploading the art isn't instant and straightforward anymore, mainly - I click to 'Submit' and it keeps telling me there's a fatal error. I have to save it to st.ash first, and then go back to the Submit Art page, upload the deviation from st.Ash and press 'Submit' again. Which is stupid and not user-friendly as well as bothersome and glitchy.
So far, life is fine! The only thing that's horrid is that I'm not going out of the house much, thereby affecting me with its consequences such as slight muscle lethargy and typical laziness. I'm not starting college until July by the very least, though if things work out, I might go earlier. Driving is going to add to my repertoire of skills next month. I'm working on projects, and I'm working on learning, so yep, all fine.
