Well, long time no see, deviantART! I see my premium membership has died and that's just fucking dandy, isn't it?

I've been largely absent for well over a year now and whilst I'd like to apologise and promise that it won't happen again, in all honesty in probably will. If you want to remain in contact with me, your best bet is following me on Twitter/adding me on Facebook.

A brief update on what I'm up to these days? At lot has happened since I was last active (half the reason I've been away is as I've been incredibly busy), but to sum it all up I moved to Reading, Berkshire with my partner last month and started my new job at GAME as general staff member and community manager. Working at GAME blends perfectly well with my other job as a video game journalist (for my own site and various other online and paper publications) and it's great having colleagues and a boss that you can consider as friends and hang out with. It's just odd to think that I now live independently, have a loving partner, have a comfortable income of my own and have my lifetime dream jobs under my belt (as well as the occasional model shoot, oddly.) Having review copies of games arrive in the post is still mind-blowing to me but it is, of course, awesome. Promotional copies of Rayman Legends and Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMix turning up at my door before release is probably my life's highlight so far.
I've also been getting along splendidly with the editor of the UK magazine GT (Gay Times), so potentially more on that in the future!

In short, generally speaking, things are going well. I just miss all of my friends, family and belongings that I had to leave behind when I moved. I also remembered that I miss deviantART and all of its inhabitants, so I hope ya'll are doing well! I'll be briefly attending the London MCM Expo this coming Saturday, so if you see me holla at me! I'll be 'properly' attending at May's event, likely cosplaying as a male Tomb Raider (or 'Lawrence Croft', I suppose.)

Oh, and I only recently got a 3DS so ask me here/on my Twitter for my friend code! I need Animal Crossing/Poképals!

LINKS, YO
Follow me on Twitter because that's where I am these days and oh my God there are ants everywhere.
Basically what I'm doing these days: Coin Arcade
