So, sorry about ditching you guys like that for a while it's been pretty busy here in Monterey and shit's about to get heated up.

For those of you who don't know, it's been a pretty crappy year so far.  My friend and roommate from Freshmen year passed away at the beginning of the semester due his medical condition, and shortly after I got a phone call from my mother telling me my Grandmother had also passed away.  To top it off, a lot of my financial aid was pulled from underneath me because of a stupid technicality, so I'm left to fend for myself financially(my parents can't really afford to put me though college).  With pressure of the year kinda mounting up and a general feeling of malaise, I've also been feeling a type of loneliness that's been biting me for some time- and I guess now it's starting to bleed me out of what I got left.  So I haven't been in a really good emotional state lately.  

I've got a couple of guiding lights to lead me out of this precarious place, though some have dimmed out, but I have my friends who have helped carry me through it, and my family who have done nothing but support me.  I think I'm getting to the part where it finally starts to get good and I can stop bitching about how circumstance is spitting in my face.

Anyway, the last piece I put up actually was really hot for a while and ended up at the top of the Minecraft subreddit, which I'm pretty proud about.  Now, I make it a personal policy to try and reply to every comment on a piece, so I will eventually get around to everyone who commented(sorry guys.)  But anyway, I will be updating again fairly soon.  I've got a couple of pictures and ideas I wanna share with you guys, so stay tuned.
