Been a while to post anything here, not to mention even sharing any thoughts to this direction. The sole reason for this mishap is the beginning of the end of our Spring semester at the university, moreover (as my odd natural talents for ending up doing things have it) the more recent excuse being me using the last weeks of the said period as a lecturer's assistant here in our department.
Yet the said new albeit temporary position in the academical hierarchy system isn't, naturally, the only reason as to why I'm lacking in updates on several fields of my choices of interest, the biggest being the thesis. The studies have kept me quite closely tied to themselves in forms of the last pragmatic field periods about which I posted a brief mention in the earlier post, not to mention seeing that I indeed in just couple of weeks will have all the course credits that I need to get myself out from our grand institution lecture-wise as soon as I finally wrap up the Last Essay of Pedagogical Trivia. How I actually managed to find some time to get tied up in a full-body harness for taking photographs for the final work, or baking cookies for a hanami festival picnic for that matter is beyond my common comprehension for now, so I'll just let it pass as some strange loophole in the current warp of dimensions that I'm venturing in.
The springtime has been busy, I admit.
Nevertheless, being busy doesn't mean that it hasn't been fun to play around with, so with this post I'll give you guys a glimpse of what I've been up to the past months.

Saw some pretty neat artist's books the students had made, now my hands are itching to make a couple myself.
