It's been quite some time since I've written a journal so I thought I'd give a little update.


Yup… yet again shuttermonkey and I have moved. It's only been a little over a year since we last moved but when this new place presented itself we couldn't say no. We're not too far from our old place, actually it's really only about 2 blocks away, but it's inside a fairly nice neighbourhood while our old place was just outside. We feel like part of the elite now. Unfortunately it's less bedrooms than we had before, however, the space difference is massive so it more than makes up for it. The new place is double the size of our old place. It's so welcome especially for the cats. They've got so much more space to roam and run around. One of the biggest draws of this new place is that it's a favour for a friend of the family so he gave us an amazing deal on the rent. Which happens to include electricity so we can run the central air all day without worry! I no longer have to melt while I work from home during the day. It's so amazing. In all we're saving about an extra 400-500 a month. Which bring me to my next update!


Cory and I are both turning 30 this year (I can't believe we're both this old), and November marks our 15 year anniversary, Anyway… because we're able to save some extra money and because such big milestones don't come along all that often we're gonna celebrate while we can. So we're heading to #NewYork! It's been a dream of ours to go there and we're finally making it a reality. We're beyond excited! We have so many things to do I just hope we can get most of them done in 8 days we're gonna be there. I doubt we'll get everything done, but we know for certain this wont be our only trip there! You guys have any ideas of things we need to check out?


Segwaying right into our next topic! Cory is born on Halloween and it's both our favourite time of the year! We're so looking forward to a spooky time in New York but also we're throwing a costume bash after we get back. I can't wait to start watching all my favourite spooky movies we save up every year for this time. Hope you guys have awesome plans too!

I would just like to say thank you for handling all of the problems that go on throughout the website as calmly as humanly possible hahah. I'm sure you've dealt with a whole lot, but you're super positive, and that helps a TON.
I figured with all of the reports, requests, and complaints you might get, it would be nice to hear a simple hello or thank you hahah. Have a good day!

Ikue Featured By Owner 6 days ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hiya, if you still require assistance please respond to your helpdesk ticket. We need you to verify your information before we can move forward. :)
jonathann10 Featured By Owner 6 days ago  Student Artist

Ikue Featured By Owner 6 days ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm not sure where you got that information but I assure you I wouldn't have told you to message me on my personal page. Please check your emails. If you can respond to that email with the information asked for I'll be able to assist you. :)

Mr. Carey, I want to report somebody, fiskefyren.
(S)he insulted my God, made fun of my religion and was disrespectful:
Plus, look at their profile. (S)he submits many hateful pictures and Journals, making fun of my God and my religion. If you don't agree with their anti-religion belief, she insults you.
Their profile is all full of anti-religious stuff. I considered reporting her deviations, but it'd be stupid 'cuz their whole gallery is anti-religious.
Ikue Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Please report any instances of abuse through the help desk. Providing any evidence of misconduct through the form provided. :)
AlexHofstadter Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2014  New member Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks! I called them a moron. Will that count as misconduct?
Ikue Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
