|fail vs. win, college vs. IMVU, so on, so on.

SO! Some IMVU-ish updates for all!
I know I'm being a big baby about it, but I just need to complain sometimes. Complain or explode.
My summer has sucked in so many ways, and now, summer is over... but in hot and sunny Puerto Rico it's always summer (or so many of you people with "seasons" say...)
Another reason why it's eternal summer for me:
I GRADUATED COLLEGE.
For the second time. I am now an MA (in English literature, if you need to know, and happy to be one).
After many tears and much suffering, and with the help of my committee and support from my friends, I finished my thesis and it was a total success.
So... not being concerned with classes starting in the Fall is a very strange feeling... I'm somewhat disoriented.
(Meaning, though I know the following is totally untrue, on a rational level, I feel like my life HAS NO MEANING WHATSOEVER).
I'm not concerned with reading and courses for the moment, but am somewhat busy doing research... looking for a uni to do my PhD in.
(I'm sorry if this makes no sense to some of you, it's just what's on my mind, and this has nothing to do with IMVU, does it?) I'll get back to it, I promise.
I mean to say, my academic life is not over and will never be over, because it looks like my future is in academia.
Some of you know that I'm moving. I've been moving very slowly...
Another reason why this summer has been unsummerish.
I've been working with hardware type things... painting, lifting heavy items, installing things that are not software. You get it.
In the process of choosing which of my possesions I bring from the old house to the new, I am ridding myself of everything I don't need or have not used in a year.
Among those things... are these boots:
They're popular on IMVU... may I interest you in a cheap, pre-owned by Narco real life pair? (Size 10. Bids start at 15$. They cost me about 100$ with S&H.)
Before you assume anything, they don't stink! They smell like a meadow inside (really, really) and are totally clean.
Just dusty and worn on the outside. You buy?
I am also selling a ridiculous amount of crap on GothAuctions again.
And I will keep adding stuff as I keep searching through my closet... what I will take and what I'll give away or sell, because the new house has a much smaller closet.
I announce it here hoping some anonymous peeps who may be interested drop by, but twice it's only been two AMAZING developers that I love and it's both exciting and embarassing.
For example... Premmy adopted 2 of my skirts, which was very kind and on top of it, sent a generous donation that went towards my domain hosting fees. <3
And Lumina bought some of my stuff as well a while back.
But back to IMVU and the things that matter.
LC is total WIN.
So many developers that I will not even begin to name (because they are many and I don't want to forget anyone) have contributed ideas, graphics, articles, special LC products and themed stuff (like Woolooloo and her hit public room, "Liar of Lollitude" - which you should check out.
It makes me feel warm and fuzzy.
Pretty please CLICK HERE to see what developers like Pop, Ritsy, Mayteval, Woolooloo, Xylopia and Splattertude have made honoring (*ahem* -promoting-) the Cult.
There's many more, they just haven't added the keyword, BUT you may see all the exclusive LC merch linked at our facebook page here:
Click it! Please "like" it!
All the new articles get promoted there as well!
Also remember you can join our IMVU group for interaction, suggestions, and best of all FREEBIES.
We give out free LC merch to registered members!
If you still haven't visited LC, please do so... you can also become a writer for LC if you think you have something to contribute. We are in need of writers! You can get paid. In credits or in candy, you choose.
And finally... about developing, the same thing usually happens to me... I think "hooray, summer vacation! I'll finally do those things I wanted to do on IMVU" but I end up caught up in real life duties and don't.
This summer I did make some bundles of cosplays of the Endless sisters - from Niel Gaiman's Sandman graphic novel, which is one of my favorite authors and Sandman is the only graphic novel I actually own most volumes of.
Check them all out by clicking here.
Or just look at the picture if you're not interested in buying them, they're still cute.
And that is all for now.
