You could also say permanent hiatus, if you so wish. I realized that it was simply a farce to believe that I would make new layouts again. The fact is, not only have my interests changed, but I'm getting a lot more work from college now. LJ layout making is no longer something I have the patience for, especially when my other activities have more relevance to my desired career in game development, and/or actually have the potential to earn me a paycheck. I won't go into the details, as they'd just bore you fine folks, so in short: don't expect to see more layouts.
I'm really sorry about this -- I tried to delay the inevitable as much as possible. But it's just not going to happen anymore. So I'd like to redirect you to refutare, a layout community operated by two very talented friends of mine. You're probably watching them already, but if you aren't, get on it!
Anyway, I think I've rambled on long enough. Thank you for all the support over the years, and farewell. ♥
EDIT: The community will not be deleted. It will remain as an archive of my layouts. :)
