Oh my God, soiia is here with a wallpaper!!! What the hell right, why did she decide to photoshop once again after years and years!? Well, for your information, I accidentally enter the full screen mode and couldn’t get out of it for a good 2-3 minutes. I ended up google-ing the way to exit the full screen mode… I feel kinda embarrassed having to say this, but oh well. So before I go on with my rambling, here’s the main deal of the post :

If your screen is bigger, here’s the link (3rd pattern to the pattern I use for the background.
How’s life everyone? To be completely honest, things haven’t been too cheerful over here. I finished school since 2 weeks ago so I think I’m having the post-school syndrome, as in you expected the rush of liberty will make you feel so freaking good, but you end being bored of your mind -_- I did my best to cure myself by going out with my friends, but we end up going out just to fill ourselves with food and expand our waistline an inch at a time… which is really bad. For all the people that read this, don’t you have any fun activities to suggest me other than shopping and eating? Those two things cost me too much money and sweat.

Hello to all people who are still following Escape, and for the new people that came across the site =)
I will first start by thanking the awesome people that supported Escape when it was being updated almost daily (yeah, that was a while ago) by all of our members. You guys are awesome! Also, a bit hug for the other frequent visitors that came once in a while to this site to get support AND to cheer for us 😀
However, with our busy schedules, Escapees can no longer update the site frequently and constantly like we used to. Heck, we barely have the time to catch each other on MSN Also, I don’t think it’ll be fair to blame it on school and work, because admit it or not, our graphic design craving is dying a little bit more everyday and our interests are all diverging. Although I tell myself that I can always add more stocks once in a while, I just seem to lack the motivation to open photoshop, prepare myself some coffee while it loads and work Ps for hours. And I think I’m not the only one 😛 all Escape members seem to have better things to do.
So, instead of closing down Escape, we’ve decided (actually, it was fairy’s idea a while back, but we were still too in denial about the thought that Escape is about to stop getting updated) to leave Escape as it is. Thus visitors can still use our textures, stocks and read tutorials when needed. Basically, everything on the site will remain…except for the updates 😛 Therefore, feel free to surf around (and please credit). For broken links, please email us via the “Contact Us” section and we’ll try to fix it when possible*.
*I’m saying “when possible” because there are parts of tutorials or images that are not on our computers anymore, which explain why we might not be able to fix certain links.
As for the questions that we received via the tagbox, well, I guess many of you have noticed that they were pretty much left unanswered and we’re actually really sorry for that. Because of the lack of updates, we didn’t manage to answer them properly. For the few affies requests we received (still via the tagbox), the rules were clear that we only consider affies requests via the affies pages.
Now, enough blablas, THANK YOU to everyone and hopefully, you guys will understand this decision I guess the fan-art designers of the same generation understand Escapees’ decision; we’re getting too old to catch up with the young sites out there 😛
For the young bloggers, I hope you all the best; I have the chance to go to Australia to meet Fairy after almost 3 years knowing each other 😀 It was a GREAT trip and I had lots lots of fun! Have fun meeting new people, but stay safe 😉

Wow it’s been a long time.
Guess what, soiia is going to visit me next week. All the way from Canada to Australia. We’re finally going to meet after all these years.
It still feels unreal!

Hi everyone! Wow, haven’t been here in who knows how long. This year has sucked so badly, but I’m getting through it. Tried Soiia’s crepe recipe! They were so good.
What’s the difference between lettuce and backpacks?
A lot of things.
Why do seagulls live by the sea?
Because if they lived near a bay, they’d be bagels.
What’s black and white and black and white and black and white?
A penguin rolling down a hill.
What’s black and white and laughing?
The penguin who pushed it.
What’s gray and clear at the same time?
An elephant in a plastic baggie.
What’s yellow and flies through walls?
A magic banana.
What’s purple and fuzzy?
A purple fuzz.
Why did the monkey fall out of the tree?
Because it was dead.
That’s all for now. Love you guys!

Despite the non-activeness of Escape, I still have to stop by and wish everyone a WONDERFUL holiday! Merry Christmas for those who celebrate it AND Happy New Year !!
Have you guys thought about your resolutions for 2010 ? Have your 2009’s resolutions work ? Any wishlists?
On my part, I made a resolution (2009) to get more muscles and glad it became true with much effort into yoga, Pilates and badminton 8)
Happy holidays once again xD Don’t gain too much weight during the holidays and have fun unwrapping presents

I thought Halloween just ended…
… and already, Christmas’ decorations are selling! I don’t know for you guys, but I find this quite sad. We’re constantly trying to speed up everything at such an exhausting rate. How the hell am I supposed to feel the Christmas vibe when trees are still orange and red over here -_- Our society is trying to speed up too much : it tires soiia out and she gets moody.
And to make everything worst, they (as in shops) start selling a phenomenal quantity of chocolates (the Halloween leftovers and the new kinds) and I just spent 20 bucks on chocolate. I’m really really ruining myself.

Happy Halloween everyone!
I’ve never been a real fan of Halloween, but still Happy Halloween! For the young ones, I guess you’re all gonna go trick-o-treat if the weather permits, and for the older ones, welcomes parties! Argh, I actually could have gone to one, but I’m too busy with school
Soiia + Halloween = Doing physics. (grandma syko is probably really proud of me)
All. Night. Long. -_-
On the selfish part, I’m actually glad my bf has to work and my friends have exams too (muahahah), so the pain is shared proportionally.
1) Now, if you are going to drink, don’t drink and drive, okay? It’s not cool and it’s … not cool.
2) Again, if you’re gonna drink, don’t let anyone mess with your drink(s). If yes, chop that person’s head or ruin their costume.
3) Don’t eat bad candies, children.
4) Do carry those unicef donation box with you – Do you guys still have that? When I was a kid, I had one.
5) No partying after 3 ! Think of your parents worrying all night long D:
6) Do have fun, and get ready to re-enter the sad reality Sunday -.-

Look at this man : He paints himself and look almost invisible :O
Note: I’ve been quite busy with school this week (and maybe next week too) and haven’t been able to sort Escape’s emails and respond to the affiliates’ applications (among us, I’m in charge of emails). I hope to do that soon, but I’ll have to put school on top priority this week, so please bare with me 😛
And since I just turn 18 recently (muahahahha), I was wondering if you guys have any feedback on Paypal. I’m curious to create an account, but I don’t wanna pay monthly fee for something that I will end up not using… Thanks!
Spreeead the love like you spread nutella.
