Nice to be back!

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 15, 2014, 2:24 PM
Well, I know it has been a long time since anyone has heard from me. I've been off the grid trying to finish nursing school. I finished but then I had to take the license exam called the NCLEX. Successfully did that but then I had to find employment or it was all a waste of time and money anyway. Did that and now I'm grinding away trying to learn how to do this job. It's a hard gig I have to say and I couldn't focus on my art while I was so preoccupied with that.

But now I can :)

So, a lot has changed here. I barely know how to edit and submit. But I'm gonna try. We'll do some Zodiac and some random stuff. Gonna try to do some commissions too so old notes are gone but send me a new one or an email at eggplantm@charter.net and I'll see what I can do.

Good to be back.

That OTJ training can be a real pain.  I hope your preceptors have been good.  Hopefully you had one good one and were able to stick with them, so you had a consistent example to learn from.  And hopefully your place's staffing is adequate so you don't have too many patients with too many problems that you have to address at once. 
Good luck with all that, and we're looking forward to the next Zodiac.

Welcome back and congrats on the job. In celebration, answer me a question but only if it's not a spoiler:

If the Cancer armor's arms were otherwise disabled, what armaments might it have access to?

It's for a bit of a fanfic type drabble I've been toying around with. ^_^

Well, I have been planning a few things.
1. There are missles in the shoulder and lower leg areas.
2. Cannons that retract from the back
3. The chest plates retract to allow access but can also blip up to reveal a solar-panel type device underneath that is a final attack type blast.

That's about it. Battlesuits can be fun cause you can always add something or say it was modified.

Its good you're back. Great for you to have a job finally. I'd say its all worth it. I really missed ya! Hopefully you haven't yet forgotten about the whole contest thingy though. I'm still patiently waiting for that one free line art for my character, although since it has been so long, I'm planning of changing it. That is if...you're still going to finish giving those contest constellation prizes.

Hope to hear from you soon. Good luck with your job!

My niece did that. But she is a little bitty thing and some of the heavier jobs were too diffi cult for her. Not an easy job but I think you will do well.

Welcome back, Eggplant! I'm glad everything seems to be working out for you and such. Take as much time as you need for the comic. We have waited anxiously to see how this would turn out and I have confidence that this will be worth the wait.
