omg. it's been almost two years... first off, there's probably only like two of you reading this, but that's ok, I really only did this for myself.

Incase anyone cares, I will briefly talk about myself/life. I know I dropped off the face of the earth and here is my best explanation. Summer 2005 was a little crazy for me. I started a relationship and just got busy, that's how life is. I probably was bad at keeping up with comics, but I had this desire to rework all of hindsight 21/17 since I felt like I was much better at drawing than I had been. At the end of the summer I went to Italy for several months, I did lots of drawing (which I'm very proud of), and though I had occasional access to a scanner and the internet, I just didn't have it in me to keep up with the comic. Needless to say my relationship had ended and I was pretty focused on the millions of other ideas I was having in my head.

When I returned home in 2006, I met this new guy I ended up falling head over heels for. I lost sight of a lot of my passions and interests and devoted myself to him. Unfortunately keeping up with a comic just wasn't in my time schedule, what with keeping a steady job and spending all my free time with him. But I always kept Conner in my mind.

You see somehow in the process of creating Conner I fell in love with him. I know, stupid, a comic character I created! But I did. And I still love the little boy now. Conner's always been there in my heart and in my mind, and I've constantly felt guilty about not keeping up with him. With my relationship being a rollercoaster over the last year and several months, I've lost a lot of my sight in life and drive. But I think back to the summer when I first started the comic. I did it as a way to uplift myself, for something to be proud of, for something to feel good about. I'm starting to think that sounds like a good idea again? yeah.

Honestly I have several ideas and projects I want to work on, other comics, novels, and such. It was already in my plans to bring hindsight 21/17 to an end 2 years ago, and I think I owe the comic at least that. I'm not sure how long it will take, or how often I will be updating. I can honestly say that Conner and Owen (and maybe a few other characters) will be appearing in many other works I create. I will be sure to let you know when and where those can be found. But while I try to gain some perspective and steady myself in life, before venturing off into other comic projects, I will spend a little time putting a finish to this story. Currently right now I don't have the power plug to my scanner, plus I need a new scanner. I don't even have my drawing pad, I had to do it all by mouse. Hopefully I'll get that taken care of soon. In addition to all that I don't have my password for my account here, I dug out my old computer and fortunately had it saved in my ftp program. So that's my only access. I think there is something funky with my account. I'll have to contact the admins and get my password changed so that I can actually know it again.

While I still have my hindsight2117[at]yahoo.com email. That thing gets so much spam I will be deleting it as soon as I get my password for the comic. If you need to contact me, you can send me an email there, or just put up a little comment and ask me to post my other email addy.

TC, I miss you, heh, and I should probably get online or something to talk to you. What are you working on now? I was looking for your Jak comic just the other week and couldn't find it. Anyway I have a lot of catching up to do with this and anyone who still around to read it. If anyone is out there, it'd be nice to hear a hi!

p.s. thanks for the encouragement even after two years to post on my comment board to get my act together.
