So, anyone who's got a keen eye probably knows what i'm talking about... A lot of my deviations have either been deleted or put into storage. My account hasn't been hacked. I'm responsible for this. My premium membership has been expired for a while now. I haven't felt like submitting anything on DA for a while (that is not to say that I haven't taken photographs, I just feel like DA isn't the place for them any longer).
So, with all that said, I'll probably be moving over to Flickr (not as exciting as DA, I know) - but Flickr is the platform that's supported (by default) across Apple's entire product lines (iphones, ipads, macs etc. all have built-in support for Flickr); and since I'm an apple user, it makes sense to me to migrate over to Flickr.
So, i've either stored away my most popular deviations, or simply deleted them (after downloading a copy to re-upload to Flickr, of course). It's been an amazing time, you know. These last 6 (or has it been 7? I don't remember exactly) years on DeviantArt. God knows I wouldn't be who I am today without the people I've met on this website, and the support I've had from the community. I'm lucky to have had such an amazing community supporting me. This website has inspired me; invigorated me and has spurred me on to pursue something I simply thought was a passing fad for me (taking photographs, phhhh WHO does that, right?) into a lifelong hobby, passion (and maybe even a profession, in the future - certainly something I'd like to do part-time).
But, all things must come to an end... and so must this relationship I have with DeviantArt. You might have noticed that all of my previous journal entries are gone. That's because I'd rather not leave stuff on a website that I don't intend to use. No worries, i've backed up everything of importance on my own computer. Starting right now, I shall no-longer be posting anything new on this website.
I'm not sure if I'll be deleting my DA account as of right now (it might happen, just so you're aware). I know my account isn't going anywhere until the end of June 2015, so feel free to message me in private until then, if you wish.
Again, thank you all for your love, kindness and support through all these years (from the end of high school, all the way to the end of college... man... that's a long time). I wish you nothing but success in all your future endeavors.
& Peace to all.
