Hello, anyone who might actually read this!

I haven't logged on to this site in forever. That sucks, 'cause I love Newgrounds. The reason behind it is kinda silly, but I'll tell ya why anyway.

Probably a year or so ago, I had a thread in the art forums that had to do with my daily art. If I didn't keep posting in about three days or less, then I considered myself sucky or something (I don't remember what my consequence was). There was a period where I stopped posting for waaay too long, and I felt ashamed. Therefore, I made it my duty to never come back until I make really great progress in the fields I'm studying.

I still feel like this is helping me get over my procrastination troubles. I've been reading a book about it, and so far, I've been extrememly productive. A lot of the practice I'm doing is becoming a habit, which is super awesome. In all, I want to fully come back to Newgrounds eventually, but if I did it now, it'd probably remove some motivation. This website is pretty much my incentive to get better. I want to get involved in this community again, and I'm getting closer. I recently got a lot of other resources for music recording and whatnot, and I've also learned some new things here and there. I won't spoil much, but I have a lot to use now. I just need to improve a bit more. I'll be back someday! :)

I haven't made a news post in a while (or posted any music), so here's one now.

I've been working on music for a while now, pretty much. Sadly, I have this really weird case of "Whoa! That sounds really good! Let's save it for the future!" sort of thing. I'm a person that always jots down great ideas that I come up with and predicts how I can use 'em. I'm not sure if this happens with many others. When I think some music would sound really awesome for something I wanna do in the future, I hold it off until then. I like this because it gives me some sort of list of ideas to choose from, but I also hate it because I'm not submitting anything new, for that matter. To overcome this, I'll find some time to work on and post some music, whether I think it'll work great in the future or not. I'd like to make an album someday too, where I compile new tracks and remake some old ones (yep, the ones I made when I was just starting out). I'd rather not let that small dream fly by! Expect to see some new music soon. :D

I created an art thread to keep me motivated and persistent in art practice, studies, and whatnot. Feel free to check it out, and leave some opionions/critiques if you like! http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1394389

I submitted music to the Newgrounds Inspired Music Contest! This helped me get back into the swing of completing music and stuff. You can check it out here. http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/632720

Oh, and I'd like to be more active here. I'll probably get back into the swing of things gradually. I'd really like to spend a lot of time seeing what others are up to! There are bunch of artists, musicians, etc. that I'd like to catch up to what they're working on. ^-^

That's pretty much it for now. Thanks for reading!

Am I really too late to participate in the monthly voting?! Aw man! It was the first time I was even asked, too. I guess I'll hope I can vote next time.
