The artist formerly known as Yuggster...

Well, all...it finally happened to me. My dear friend met her demise, taking all of my documents, unfinished stories, and everything else with her.

Yes, my PC has died.

I tried switching hard drives with a friend, using his Dell Dinosaur (man, that thing is huge...and old). Apparently my old motherboard had fried, and while my hard drive and everything on it should be intact I have no way of getting to it right now. So until I can get the Dell Dinosaur working (the problem is all of my other stuff was only a year or two old, my PC was about five years old but had been upgraded in the last couple of years, and while he claimed his computer was only five years old (supposedly the same age as mine) I have my doubts. So my hard drives (yes, drives...what can I say, I'm addicted to writing the written word) are in the new PC but because I have a wireless keyboard/mouse combo after my last keyboard met a watery death (oops), the Dinosaur won't even detect my keyboard so until or unless I can find boot disks and a keyboard that uses the old-style keyboard ports and not a USB port I can't get to anything on my hard drive. Beyond that, I don't even have a computer to write on right now so while I can draft things on my electric typewriter (the last-fail backup) it's hard to get them to an internet-accessible computer and get them loaded up.

The only thing I can do right now is draft things up on my typewriter and maybe find an old floppy with some Word docs on it and second draft at the library to at least get something else up.

Now, about the username change...

I've been "Yuggy", "Yuggy Monster", or "Yuggster" since high school. I'm 25 now. Granted, that's not too old, but I have enough of a past to want to put it behind me. And part of that is changing my name. I have struggled with depression since I was fourteen, probably before that (starting with my mom's back surgery, probably, back when I was 12), and unfortunately that is linked to my Yuggster nickname. Since I was Yuggy and Yuggster in high school and college and all those memories (especially those from 2002--second semester of Freshman year and first semester of Sophomore) are associated with that part of my identity, I'm changing my username (pretty much everywhere) and trying to move on. I know it won't fix everything, but it's a start--like moving. I'm moving to Alabama in mid-September, because life is too short and the world is too big to live in a place where I'm so miserable.

Anyway, I've got lots of freckles. And I was going to be 83Freckles, but that username was already taken on Youtube, so I went with ThousandFreckles. Yeah. Seemed like a shallow choice, but I'm learning there might be more to it.

So, basically, due to a lot of computer problems in the last few weeks, I can't promise when updates will come, but they will come. And yes, there's more of a story behind my username but we'll save that for another time.

This is Thousand Freckles (the artist formerly known as Yuggster), signing off.
