Salam, all. So I feel asleep playing Skyrim, if that gives any indication how exhausted I've been.Plan of the Week(s) - 15JUL-26Jul-Flights Picking Up - Next Two Weeks Shot

~~~-Flights Picking Up - Next Two Weeks Shot
So last week was crazy, first half of this week was crazy, and next week is going to be crazy. I've discovered that my training has these sort of lulls in between CRAZY INTENSE days at a time, during which I can only devote all my attention toward preparing for the missions. During the few lulls, I sleep and try to think about things...not training-related, haha.
It's come to my attention that, not only do I have an exam this week, but I have a series of flights that are going to eat up the next two weeks. I will only have the weekends to myself, and usually then, I begin prepping for the next bunch of flights on Sundays.
This means that, starting next week, there are going to be some serious delays in response times from me, both comments and Notes. Same applies to Notes - if you don't hear from me for more than a week, (the whole seven days, not four or five,) then feel free to resend your Note, as it may have happened that I read it, didn't get a chance to respond, and it got swiftly swallowed up by the dozens of other Notes I get a day. Or FA just ate it, which seems to happen occassionaly. Also, commissioners, expect at least an additional two week wait time tacked onto the estimated one I gave you during correspondence.
~~~-All Commissions Closed
Due to all this, and as the title suggests, I am closing all Commissions until things settle down. And that means ALL Commission types, including icons. I already have a smallish backlog of finished pieces I'm working on posting, as well as a fairly large queue with a few large pieces in it.
If you have already contacted me regarding a Commission and we are pretty far in discussing the details, then don't worry, you should be good. I will, however, be taking rain checks on extra-large and complex Commissions or those with characters without a visual reference. Do not take it personally if I need to take a rain check on your piece, by any means. It simply means that I literally don't have enough hours in my day to devote as much time to it that I normally would be. I also dislike having large pieces sitting around in my queue that I can't get to as quick as I'd like to due to training-related happenings like this, hence my closing for all large pieces until further notice.
I have a good amount of pieces to keep me working for at least the next month or two, presuming that my training schedule will continue with the crazy times and the lulls, and that my art time will be restricted to weekends. I am not planning to reopen until my entire queue is full, and only take smaller bites at a time so I don't have a large queue then end up with 14 missions to plan for. (Literally.) Smaller queues will also mean more time for personal art, and hell, it's already halfway through summer and I haven't done any of my OC ref sheets I had wanted to do and update. I fully intend on changing this.
Current commissioners, thanks for your patience with these going-ons. This should not come as a surprise to anybody, considering my line of work, which is also not a secret. Commissioners awaiting WIPs, expect them to come pretty exclusively on the weekends. To others wanting to see some of my recent activity and smaller updates, I will point you in the direction of my Tumblr and Twitter here, which are easier for me to update when I am out and about.Tumblr - twilightsaint.tumblr.com/

I will open for a small queue towards the end of next month or early fall. It'll likely be one of my Journal Batches. In fact, I'm hoping to open exclusively for specific Journal Batches until further notice.
