Scrapbook 2012  
I don't know how much I'll update this. Goodness knows I fell off the wagon on last year's over the summer and got out of the habit by the time fall rolled around. I plead busyness, and real life requiring a bit more attention. I miss talking to all of you here though! The last time I posted icons was in August, and the last time I made a decent icon was in November. So, this shan't be much of a record of fandom things, but more of what I'm reading/watching (hopefully the movies/tv section will help me keep those down if I've got to report those all the time, and hopefully the books part will go up; I never did finish War and Peace.). 

(and yes, I will be counting the Shakespeare class I'm taking this spring :D)

It's alright! :) *hugs* Real life demands a great amount of attention, and we all know that feeling! We miss you too! I've missed seeing you around and your gorgeous icons; just you! I do hope you can come around more. :)

Shakespeare class sounds very interest, though I've never read very much of his work. Just a few bits and pieces of Hamlet in my Lit books! :)

I have a little off subject question, who was your previous layout by? :) All I know is that it was gorgeous and amazing, and clean and crisp, and I'd love to possibly use it. :D Your new layout is lovely too, and creative; I tried it once and never got to it properly display, so great credit to you for that!

So nice seeing and hearing from you again Maddy! :)

*hugs* Thanks, dear! You're very sweet. :) I think I'll post icons at this journal again, if only so that when I occasionally do post it's all in one place. I want to try making some more while I'm on break, since I'll likely not have much time for it next semester. So keep your fingers crossed, but don't hold your breath! ;)

I'm excited! I've read about five or six plays altogether before this, but I understand that we'll be reading roughly a play a week (plus some sonnets!). I'm looking forward to doing more reading. :)

All my previous layouts have been by refuted and that specific layout can be found here. I've learned a bit of HTML and CSS since joining LJ and made a bunch of modifications to colors and such. Thanks! I was wanting to try something new! :)

So good to hear from you too! I hope to stay more in touch/find a balance/something.

Oh yay! <3 I promise to not hold my breath...but all my fingers shall be crossed! :P

Shakespeare is a legend, so I'd be excited too! You'll have to tell us what you think of some of them. :)

Thank you so much! :D I'll really have to try out that layout. I've learned a bit of HTML/CSS, but luckily I have a computer and code savvy brother and father that are like tech-support on call! *chuckles* They are always kind enough to help me out. :)

I do hope you can find a balance, since we all love to see you! Have a lovely night. :)
