Thanks for all the birthday wishes and such! I'll get to replying now that I'm awake. I don't really have a sleep schedule these days, and my birthday didn't change that.
Life is pretty dull right now! I'm taking this time to get myself into better health. To make a long story short, I did a lot of damage to myself over the past five years. I started trying get myself together over last year, without much success.
I still feel pretty lousy, but waking up each morning feels less and less lousy, and I'm starting to feel more energetic. An old friend of mine even got me into fencing. Hands are steadier, and I'm able to sculpt again. My next one should be really, really soon. I'm trying to go a bit overboard on details.
Besides all that, I'm also going back to school in the Fall, for metal fabrication. I wouldn't be too upset if I ended up working in an office again, but I feel like three years was enough for now.
