So here it is at the end of 2013.  I haven't posted anything since the middle of 2011 and it's been even longer since I posted any artwork.  What happened?  Life.

I won't state everything that has happened to me since that time, as that would increase the length of this post tenfold.  And I already have a bad habit of writing several paragraphs whenever I post something.  Instead, I'll just explain what's going on right now and what I plan to do for the future.

Currently, I'm in the process of catching things up on dA.  I've spent the better part of 2013 just catching up on all of the artwork that the people I follow have been posting.  I then adjusted exactly what I want notifications of from each of those people.  During this time, I've made up a list of almost 700 people that I want to add to my watch list, which is what I'm now in the process of doing.  Once I go through this list, which could take a few more months, I'll then finally be in a position to make some sort of final decision about my future plans regarding dA.

My three choices as I see them now are: A) Continue downloading art that I like from those I watch until I die. B) Stop using dA altogether and leave it behind. C) Find some sort of in-between by being much more selective of what I download.  Plan "A" does not seem feasible to me.  I really don't want to keep doing this for the rest of my life.  Plan "B" definitely seems more reasonable, but would be somewhat difficult for me.  I'm looking at Plan "C" right now, but I'll have to further define its parameters before I make that final decision in a few months.

This may seem like some extreme measures, but my life has gotten so filled with "things" that I need to do some trimming in order to reclaim my life.  Feel free to say what you will about this.
