I still love you all!

Hey everyone,

I know I have been away for while. Doing my Master's thesis, data analysis for projects, and other things in my life have kept me away from there. I know I have not finished people's requests in a timely manner, and I am sorry about not finishing them sooner. I still plan on finishing them because I like to finish what I start. It may take awhile, but I will do it. I don't want to half-arse it to "get it done" by any means.

As it approaches my fifth year as a TEF deer (March 14, 2007), I remember the peace I felt when I first stepped into the Forest and the acceptance I received from other players. This game and community, along with other things, has helped me deal with much and I am grateful to that.

Peace and love, all.

Your friend,

Requests and Life Update

Hello everyone,

I know I have quite a few requests left to fill, and I will do my best to finish them, despite the follow things that have been going on in my life:

First, this semester, I started a part-time job in addition to going to graduate school. I'm trying to make some money for myself, and it's been difficult when one's adviser (essentially the one who has your future in his/her hands when you go to school beyond a Bachelor's degree) keeps insisting on piling more and more on one's plate.

Second, graduate school has been demanding as ever. It's the same story.

Third, I've started going to church, and being involved in the church has taken much of my time because I want to serve God and serve my fellow Christians.

Finally, I have been having suspicious symptoms that have finally added up. I was able to at last get time to see a doctor this week, and my doctor suspects I have an autoimmune disease, particularly lupus. Almost all the females on my father's side of the family, including my sister, have lupus and I have some of the symptoms. I hope that if I do indeed have an autoimmune disease, I will be catching it early.

That's what's going on. I am so sorry for taking so long with the requests, everyone.

I Survived

Well, I survived the last few weeks of the semester and my finals. What did I miss?

Also, I will be getting back to the requests shortly. I just need to do a few practice sketches because I haven't had a chance to draw for awhile.

Four Years User Time...

...and 48 years in-Forest. That's how long and I have been here. We are the same, yet different. is me in the Forest, and I am in this world.

On March 14th, 2007, I was on Spring Break in undergrad, and I was bored. I was looking for a decent game on which to spend my free time, and I found The Endless Forest. At first I was reluctant to join the forums (this was before the Community site) because I wasn't sure about being part of another online community. However, when I decided to join in the next day, I had no idea what a wonderful idea it would be. Smiling

We have seen so many changes this Forest has seen, and we have made many wonderful friends. Thank you all for your friendship, and thank you, Michael and Auriea, for making such a wonderful game.

TEF Visual Effects - Soft Effect

How much "soft effect" do you normally use during play? I sometimes like to use the halfway level because it makes me feel as if I'm in a dream, and other times I need things in sharp clarity.

How about you?

Song of the Day: "Nights in White Satin" by the Moody Blues

I've always loved this song, and when I came across this video I wanted to share its beauty with all of you. Smiling
