Some may have noticed my sudden disappearance on this platform. This is unfortunately because other life events have caught up with me, and frankly at this moment I don't have the time to be updating this site on a daily, or even semi-daily basis.
So, what's happening?
First, some of you may be aware, I'm working on my Master of Science in Physics, Concentration in Instrumentation. My goal is to graduate this semester, and as such, writing my thesis has become priority number one. All paperwork is due by April 15, so honestly I've got to get the thing done the week before. Hence, all my attention is on that right now.
Some of you may also know, I'm also a full-time employee of an observatory in southern New Mexico; in trying to get CORAX studios off the ground, I'm working around that constraint as well. Right now, we're working on a major install, a huge upgrade to one of our most notable telescope systems; this has taken up a significant amount of my time as well. It's an impressive project, and once it begins collecting science I can't wait to see the results! It's something I enjoy and am passionate about, so I don't regret this focus; however, it does, in conjunction with the aforementioned MS, create quite a time crunch, within which it's difficult to find the time for other projects.
Finally, in addition to both the above items, I'm also presently taking classes remotely at New Mexico State University, Grants campus. This is in conjunction with a program at the main Las Cruces campus, in pursuit of a Creative Media degree. While these classes are a distant third in priority, they're still important, and so what little "free" time remains in my schedule is going to those.
So, what does this mean for CORAX studios?
For the time being, these projects are being put on hold. Once April 15 rolls around, I should have plenty more time to begin working on this stuff again (which is good, because I'll be participating in a Thing that weekend!), and by then I believe I'll be able to make a couple new announcements. That's right, I've got a couple projects presently in the works! Hopefully, you'll be able to see some of that by the end of April, and it would be amazing if I could get the first one out there for folks to experience by the end of June. So, keep an eye out!
In the meantime, today I'll be writing a few posts--this is already the second--to try to bring the rest of the site up to speed, before retreating into my cocoon once again. Hopefully, in a month's time, you'll see me emerge as a frazzled but spectacular Master of Science butterfly.
So, stick around! Some exciting stuff coming in the near future!
