Well, so its been a few months, no?
I've had my skype appearing offline - or busy most of the time, but i usually got messages if anyone sent one. But, im back now - and finally done with college! After 4 f%&king years, i'm graduating. Diploma in Video Game Development - Focusing on Pre-production and Concept Art. Though, 3D modelling has become a favourite hobby :3 . I made some great friends - Some of which i gather with every friday night for a spirited game of Dungeons and Dragons. It kept me sane during the crunch time and meeting industry people - gatta love escapism. Speaking of which, we had a few sunny warm days a week or so ago - I sat out on the porch and finished my first book since high school. Gatta say im addicted - and this crappy weather has been pissing me off.
Alas, not everything has been so bright. On May 1st, one of the brightest days, i lost a best friend. My Sobek, a bearded dragon, had been sick, and passed away.

This is a link to some pictures i put up on my tumblr and some words.
And most recently, someone has come at probably the best time to fill that gap sobek left. Once the storms started to hit, i noticed when i stepped outside for a smoke, a little orange tabby cat sitting beside the fence. I managed to scramble up the fence and catch his attention - and that of a skateboarder. He scared him, and his sudden motion alerted Blue, my dear dog, to his presence. The cat booked it Forward, to the front yard. I stepped outside and he was hiding under the bench. He immediately came to rub against my leg, he was far to clean and well kept to be a stray - or have been one for long. I used to have a cat that looked just like him when i was a child, and again when i was a teenager, so he struck a cord. I brought him some food, and a blanket over the chair so he had somewhere without the rain. Unfortunately, i have an as of yet unfixed female inside, and he was most definitely a boy. Later, James and I drove around looking for signs, and asked a few of our friends in the area about him. One said he new him as a stray and has seen him around the past few months. It seemed about the time for rocket and blue to get their shots, and with a quick agreement around the house - we brought him along for a check up. He had no chip - And the Vet gave him a clean bill of health, shots and aged him at 9-10 months. So, July 13th is the birthday we picked. Now, we also realised that that lined up with someone getting a cat around September ( after staying with the mom - getting into the system for 2 months) and leaving it when they moved out. We live right beside the college, in a heavy student area.
So now, he has his own room since 2 roomies have left, filled with toys. We have to regulate his food cause he vacuums it up like no ones business - and he's getting better with not kicking shit around. We haven't decided on a name yet, though. But we need to pick one in about 2 weeks, when both he and rocket are going into get fixed.
Some names we have for him are :
Tony (the Tiger / Stark)
if you have a good one, let me know!
