New Layout!

I probably should have let go of both domains years ago, but they were just so much a part of me (I believe I’ve had for over 10 years now…!) that I just didn’t have the heart to let them go.

So, here you are now. There will likely not be any freeware graphics here, sad to say. Instead, I’m going to use this space to talk about life things, hobbies, interests, and other odds and ends. This is the first time I’ve had a personal blog, and I’m still not quite sure the exact direction I want to take this just yet. But here are some things I do know:
