So, I have been away for so long it feels like i don't know how to be a deviant anymore. It's strange. I keep coming back here because i miss it..!

I miss writing journals, not that I have been good at it.
I've only been away for a few months to find out that you can actually change your username? Since when? How did that happen?
Should I change mine into Fatmalovestodraw instead of my Toma7?
Anyways, I doubt that anybody still reads my journals, i'm so outdated.
Merry ChristmasI would like to wish all my Christian friends a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
I'm Here To StayHere's a few things to say here:
1- I just bought myself a subscription
2- I haven't been updating my Gallery and Journal (aka. no life signs!)
3- I haven't been in touch with my favorite deviants
4- Yes, i've been a Tumblr resident but deviantArt is also my home
5- I just fixed my Messages dash, so I can catch up with all the stuff you guys submit
And today is Qatar's National Day!
It's been a while, deviantart! I missed you so much.
Here's today's adventure:
I wasn't feeling hot this morning, so I decided not to go to work. But then realizing that there's a giant lizard in my room, I won't be able to get some work done, therefore I went to work, LATE!
When I got there, they told me that there's a problem with the internet, and that it might take a while. I kept working on indesign until my boss came in and told us to go home. He said that they're not even sure if it's gonna be solved by tomorrow.
I come home, Dad kills the lizard. I spend the whole day cleaning my room.
Now, I'm super exhausted!
I thought I'll upload some of the things I've worked on over the months I've been away from deviantart and Tumbling 24/7!
Good to be here
An UpdateHello deviantArt,
It's been ages since my last journal update, and I've missed it. I haven't been as active ever since I joined Tumblr. Tumblr is an amazing community, and you know it coz you have a blog there! However, this here is also my home and I will always be forever grateful and loyal to this community. I shall never leave this inspiring place. And I'm here to stay.
I love you deviantArt,
I have just learned that tomorrow is the first day of our holy month, Ramadan. So, Ramadan Kareem, everyone!
This would be the first time in my life to be unemployed, no school, no uni during ramadan. I still have my freelance work, but it's not the same.
And it would be the first time in four years that I get to participate in it, mentally, spiritually and religiously. Uni days were brutal and hectic, I didn't get any time to feel Ramadan.
As for this year, I deactivated my Facebook account temporarily, and I'm thinking of cutting back on my online presence. However, I'll be posting weekly journals on my reflections of this one special month.
Three weeks, I mean how bad could that be?
Have a great month, Universe.
Birthday EntryI remember last year's birthday, when my friends at uni brought me a chocolate cake, and a vente caramel frappucino from Starbucks with Happy Birthday written on it. And my painting professor, Brian Geary, played almost every available birthday song on Youtube for me. That was hilarious!
Then when I came home my family brought me a cake and some fireworks! And we called it a house party.
The year before that, Kipp Greene and the girls threw me a somewhat small party in class. I remember the black plastic forks that Kipp brought. I remember the spiderman balloons that Maryoom and the girls brought; which i had to drag with me till the afternoon physics class.
This year, today, I thought i'll be asking for that one thing i keep wishing for every year. But when I opened my gmail half an hour ago, and saw the amount of Facebook notifications I was blown away. I don't deserve such kindness people. Thank you sooo much, love you all! I'll do my best not to let
Post-Graduation MiserySeriously, I'm so miserable working on this project for the Olympic Committee; not having fun at all.
The problem is that it's too late to quit, and the project is almost done. Give or take 20 days from today.
I would rather be working on a full time job or just staying home, drawing, painting, listening to music and read.
I feel like a little child waiting to be cheered up.
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper

Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
