Oops. Well, it’s been a couple of months since I last posted, but pretty eventful nonetheless. I’ve been working on graphics and such, but I’ve mostly been doing this heavy summer reading assignment. Either way, nobody reads this blog except for Lucy. But with the small chance that someone’s reading this other than her, comment some posts you might like to see? Well, that’s all. Thanks for sticking around. 🙂
