Nyx-Aeterna's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
Hello all, my name is Nyx, formerly known as NightRunner, sometimes referred to as Emily. I'm an undergraduate student working on my BS in Communication Disorders (Speech Language Pathology). I like chocolate, animals, my boyfriend, and drawing on my homework.

Unfortunately this dA account is pretty neglected. I hope that once these busy college years are done, I can get back to making pretty pictures in my spare time while making cashmonies as a speech therapist.

Feel free to shoot me a message or a comment! When I see it, I guarantee I'll reply. I like talking to people. (: just don't be creepy okay.
  • Mood: Tired
  • Listening to: Dream Theater
  • Reading: textbooks
  • Watching: ain't nobody got time for that
  • Playing: how do you even
  • Eating: no :C
  • Drinking: I wish
This summer, since I can't work, I think I'll redesign my loverly fursona Nyx Aeterna (formerly known as NightRunner). Her designs have been changing ever since middle school through high school, and I've grown and changed a lot since her last design change. I think I want to drop the whole goth/emo/whatnot designs and opt for something a bit more realistic and matching who I am right now as opposed to the drama queen of middle/high school. xD

I'm thinking about a maned wolf. That way I can keep the fluff and the kind of absurd skinniness and big ears and cool stuff. Plus maned wolves live in southern/desert environments, and I live in a southern/desert environment, so... connections I guess. 

Anyway enough about my fursona crap. And also I'll be doing other arty stuff to try and keep my skills sharp and improve them but let's move on!

Exciting news!

So I've got finals in two weeks and then leave for tour for another week and then I'm off for summer. BUT I've got a shit ton of assignments I have to do, one of which got some attention! I have to write a 10-15 page report on "anything you want pertaining to your area of study" for my English class, and I was telling my core professor about it, and she thought it was cool and told me to email her the finished product so she could look it over and try submitting it to ASHA, which would be a HUGE deal because that's the national speech-hearing association and since my topic is highly underdeveloped she thinks it should be submitted so others can see it and maybe be inspired to do more research in the field! :D 

My paper is on melodic-intonation therapy and the little research there is on it, as well as my own idea to rework it and make it more standardized, as well as incorporating some classical voice training (like for singers) in it in order to make the therapy a bit more intense and hopefully more effective on stutterers and other voice/articulation disorders. I also think it can help with brain disorders, especially dysarthria and apraxia, but like every report on this subject says THERE IS NOT ENOUGH RESEARCH OUT THERE so my goal in my career is to be a pioneer in this field and make it a thing.


anyway that's my story. Have a good day!

Haha dude it's okay, I was like 13 or 14 then too. xD Which is pretty mindblowing to think back on cuz I'm in college right now. .-. What about you?

Also I remember you too! :D I think your username might've been valhyena on there. But I don't know. :c I just remember you mostly from here and associate you from BBA. Basically all I remember is a handful of people, and you're one of them!
