Oh hey Internet! ‘sup? You still there? Time for a little catch up with some big news…
I’m still here. My Blythes are all still here. All my un-uploaded photos are still here – you know, from Barcelona, meets, customising dates with friends, etc. A doll a day went out of the window. I’m still working on Penn. I have unfinished crochet and all manner of half done ideas.
New Flickr annoys me. I’m sure I’ll get back on it soon, because I miss peeping at everyone’s gorgeous dolls, and I have heaps of photos to upload. I just don’t think the way it was handled was very… professional? I don’t like 500px or ipernity. I don’t think I’m alone in how I feel about Flickr either – I know some of my friends aren’t uploading as much as they used to and aren’t browsing as much as they used to. This is really old news now, but I felt like I needed to weigh in on it. Feels like an almost convenient excuse for my being offline.
On the up side, I also have a big chunk of PhD thesis under my belt, even if it is in draft form. The whole PhD/teaching/university thing is taking up a lot of my time. Probably should have guessed that one! If you really have nothing better to do, feel free to check out my new PhD blog at www.jessicalowndes.co.uk – it didn’t seem fair to clutter up this place with shop talk.
Oh… and one more thing… It’s kind of a big deal.
I’m getting married next year!
Yes, me and Dan are getting married! :love: Answers to popular questions include: next year, summer, June – August, no I’m not having bridesmaids, no I’m not pregnant, yes there will be cake, no there’s no engagement ring, yes there is an engagement rig (you heard me), yes I am taking his name, yes it is about time, and we’re both very happy thank you very much. Phew.
I’ll try to not leave it so long til next time. Honest. Much love. :heart:
