Four years and eight-sixty people later... · 3:55am Nov 2nd, 2015

On a whim, I decided to go back and look at the first ever blog post I put up on this site. Apparently it went up back on January 30th, 2012, and besides a small progess update on a story I was working on at the time, here's what it had to say:

And now for a little non-poignant self-reflection · 7:46pm Sep 11th, 2015

As someone who has reviewed and proofread other people's work (and thus routinely criticized other people's writing), today's xkcd comic generated some self-reflection on my part:

I didn't realize Applejack liked strawberries so much... · 4:17am Sep 3rd, 2015

So, earlier this evening we were having some internet troubles in our house. At the time, my siblings and I had been watching Netflix, which abruptly ended with the loss of the internet signal. In that moment, as we were scrolling through Netflix menus waiting to see if the signal would come back, we made an interesting discovery: apparently, the name and image of a program loads at a different rate than the description of said program.

At last, a politician for our time · 2:47am Aug 22nd, 2015

My fellow Americans,

Once in a while, a political candidate comes along who inspires the imagination. Who answers the call of his people, a call you didn’t even realized you had voiced, but somehow know that you’ve always felt deep in your heart. A candidate who arises to serve our great nation in our time of need, to lead us into the glorious future.

As my new avatar makes abundantly clear, I have recently gone all starry-eyed over Steven Universe. It has become my new cartoon obsession, albeit one that hasn't inspired any writing endeavors out of me yet. I haven't been particularly wowed by any SU fan fiction so far, and what's more it's not a universe that I feel compelled to change or add to; I'm still content to sit back and just see what happens in the show.

I'm sorry, ponies · 8:30pm Jul 14th, 2015

I've...

I've been unfaithful.

You see, I... I've been seeing another cartoon.

And it's very serious between us right now.

Fic Flop #10 · 10:43pm Jun 25th, 2015


Banner drawn by my sister, Izanna!

Each time on Fic Flop, I review two stories: one good, one not-so-good. One’s a Fic, and one’s a Flop. Both are stories that have been published within the week of the review and are written by authors whose work I’m generally unfamiliar with.

The Real Fallout · 7:48pm Jun 21st, 2015

In the wake of all the excitement over Fallout 4, I was reminded of something that had a profound impact on me as a teenager. Specifically, a documentary that to this day remains my favorite documentary film and arguably is like nothing made before or since.
