hello. It's Pyr again. I get to do my yearly update
thing. Also depressing that I usually get to update on my
birthday, which happened to be three days ago.
In reality, I have nothing to say. Aido's still alive,
she still updates Fallen on occasion. She enjoys going to
RIT and does interesting
in her classes. (By the way, that file happens to be
60MB.) And me? I've been busy. Quite busy, in fact. Aido
doesn't help much.

Sorry, haven't been

Okay, so I arrived at
RIT on Sunday. It is now technically Wednesday. Things
are going relatively well, I get along with my roommate
and I am currently desperately trying to make friends.
And have succeeded. Kinda.
I live on the 6th
floor. The elevator doesn't like to work. It's a pain in
the ass to climb up all those damned stairs. I've spent
the past three days being exhausted.

a page for Fallen this week so I could update it on
Sunday while I'm getting set up at college. Haven't
started it yet. I don't even have most of the page
written out. I have some of tomorrow free, but it's
probably all going to be spent packing the car for the

much stuff. That's me. Also, sorry, no soundtracks. I've
