First off, I would like to wish a merry Christmas and/or happy holidays to all my pets, slaves, and friends. I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable time with your friends and loved ones. I know it's been a strange year, a difficult one in terms of my lack of time on here which I am deeply sorry for, and that brings me to the "moving forward" part of this journal. I've decided that no matter what happens, I am budgeting three days a week to spend on deviantArt. It's not fair to those who I have left hanging in my absence to handle pressing matters IRL, so starting at the beginning of January, I will be on dA to reply and interact on Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays. There will be times I will be on in addition to that alottment and there will be times I will be scheduling things with some people, but those additional times will be given as they come. I hope all of you are well, and you all will be hearing from me in the near future. talk soon.
