        Hey there! Things are pretty chill around here, being out for the summer. I'm making moves according to my status updates lol, and I'm playing Pokemon GO because that's the last vestige I have of every game I've ever played... xD How about you?

        I've had my ups and downs over the years, but overall pretty good. I've been wanting to play Go, but my phone that can play it broke back in March and I haven't been able to play since. You should join us in the Discord chat! :D

        Hey Jackal :) I saw you and thought about the coincidence myself, but it was too late for me to do anything last night... I was already considering you, so that's a thing xD

        Life is treating me very well, thank you, college too. It looks like I'll be getting on A&M's track team this semester, shipping around a manuscript, and getting to know some of Texas' academic writing community. How goes it for you?

        Well, I'm finally back on track in my studies, after spending the second of my so far three years "relaxing" more than I should, I'm getting ready for my exams and what will hopefully be my last year at university afterwards. Can't say I have any complaints from life.

        Okay, I'm back. Going to PMs with this beta business lol.

        Let's get it at university! I'm starting my junior year. I'm glad to hear things are well for you.

      College is treating me well; along with me, Outlet has grown in scope and will be a full novel, 46k in and being written as I speak.

        @PikaMasterJesi About half of the story is on here, due in part because I expanded to themes not too suited for this site, and the work here is only updated to a year ago in terms of revisions (though I can fix that). Feel free to read it and comment because the story is definitely ongoing, and I can always use critiques.

        @Juliacoolo Thank you! I ended up at Texas A&M for a dual major, so this looks to be an exciting prospect.

        Yeah, senior year is always a huge pain on that aspect.
        So you're planning to keep up tracking? I trust this season is going well?

        I think you mean Outlet and not Convicted. You looked at Turtwig's sig didn't you? xD

        That's the battle for many people. I find liberal arts more rewarding, but there's more of an empirical base in some people that helps them appreciate the extrinsic nature of calculations. I don't think I can quite understand such an appreciation.

        I was struggling with that word limit crap earlier. Was 420 intentional?

        See, mixing up stories means I'm /that/ exhausted. xD

        That's precisely what happens; and it's quite weird to see someone reaching out to both sides. While I do like my POV of things, I also appreciate and respect others'.

        lol, I doubt it was intentional, but you never know, I guess. :P

      Posted chapter eight. Once I do a grammatical review of nine, that should be up shortly after.

      Making slow progress right now because of cross country season, but I should be doing much more soon. Having two classes a day is helpful.

      Outlet's Chapter Eight is in the works. I have just made so much additional progress on the substance of the work that I must edit it a lot.

      Like things go, I suppose there's a time when life comes knocking and forces you to change things up. I'll still be around though.
