Month: April 2011

looks like it’s gonna be every monday now. or whenever, i don’t follow no schedule damn it i update when i muhfuckin plz. or on monday. last week went whirlwind fast for no good reason. fuck! things need to slow way down so i can appreciate my soon-to-be-employed-but-still-free times. wednesday was 4/20, which i didn’t participate in really, but it…

i am employed now. sometime in july, there’s a good chance i will receive a check in the mail (or in my bank) for something around $3000. that is more money than i have ever had in my bank account at once. maybe i will buy something frivolous. that’s about all the excitement i can muster for the future as…

i beat the force unleashed II today. i suppose reading the novelization first gave some of it away, but i was still pleasantly surprised with the game. the first force unleashed was enjoyable, if underwhelming in many ways. the story was classic star wars and the locales were incredible, but the boss fights were needlessly tricky and the environments blended…

i forgot what it’s like to try and stay up late enough that the drunk will wear off. it’s partly that i haven’t been superbly drunk in a while and partly that i’m so often drunk with emily that i immediately move to cuddle with her as soon as she enters an abode, regardless of her interest in sleep. so…

i beat dragon age-origins this afternoon, after nearly 50 hours of play. my goodness, what a game. perhaps more than any other rpg i’ve played, dragon age really made me question my decisions. good and bad were so loosely defined that the terms may as well not have existed. in this way, each decision i made felt like a change…

i was offered the job at epic. this morning i was thinking about what my life would be like if i weren’t offered the job, how free i would feel. i wonder if that means i shouldn’t take the job. $42,000 a year is a pretty respectable salary for a writer. ugh, i just don’t know how i feel.

i am also excited about mountains and clouds, but i don’t think there are any jobs specifically related to such things. besides, my excitement is of a different quality – i’m drawn to mountains and clouds for their aesthetic value, not as a potential venue of opportunity. contrary to what many may believe, i am somewhat “up” on the whole…

things i am excited about: – maps– cutting-edge book publishers– science fiction– video games– table top games– games in general– books in general– books in specific– graphic novels– web-comics– architecture– box office– wine/wine-making– beer/brewing– snowboarding and its culture– other things probably (definitely) so far as i can tell, in all my admittedly half-hearted efforts to discern a future for myself,…

i survived my first big trip alone. as dad drove me to the airport last monday morning, i felt fairly sure i might ralph, but once i was beyond security and sitting in the waiting area i sort of realized that this was it. i was on my own. no problem! it was a strange sensation. i’ve always felt like…
