I enjoy writing. If I think of anything clever to say I'll update this.

It's been a very intense year for me. I've been fortunate enough to have been working this entire time and was promoted twice since March. This was the cause of the delay in this story. I've been learning what it takes to lead people at work, but also how to manage my own self care while being able to care for others.

I have finally concluded “The Phoenix King”. It went on longer than I ever thought it would and probably didn’t need to be so long to begin with. Although, I had a great amount of fun writing every chapter of it and felt that it had literal arcs that focused on different things to keep it fresh. Or at leas to hope it did.

Where to begin, because I know where I had left off. Early October I started a new job for the government, one could call it a career, but after a few weeks they felt that I was better suited for a higher position. This led me to becoming a 'Lead' within a department, which meant reading a large "SOP" (Standard Operating Procedure) and doing a lot of overtime to get ready for the position. It really took a lot out of me and it put a big hold on everything else in my life.

New Beginnings · 6:44pm Sep 24th, 2018

These last two weeks I had dedicated myself to getting this new job, revamping my resume and going to two interviews for the position. I am happy to say that they have offered it to me which means I am over the moon at the moment on the possibilities this affords me. Full time, 401k, health insurance, paid vacation, and on top of all that it is a government job. I feel very fortunate for this opportunity, but it is also a job that I've done for the last 10 years which made me very confident in

Smoldering It Over 3rd Anniversary and Smolder 900 · 4:20am Aug 24th, 2018

Today marks the third anniversary of Smoldering It Over being uploaded and coincidentally happens to be the same day that it has reached nine-hundred views. I feel like I simply repeat myself over and over again when I say how humbled I am to have reached this milestone, but it couldn't be more to the truth. I was excited to know that thirty-four viewers had taken a glance at it and left a comment or two. At nine-hundred, I still get a comment from time to time, perhaps a message here and

Comic Con 2018 · 11:11am Jul 29th, 2018

San Diego Comic Con. I've been going since 2003 and have been ever since. I get to meet artists and writers from an assortment of different media, every last one of them are incredibly genuine and humble. This year I focused mainly on buying art, while getting autographs from a few choice people, and I was very successful in achieving all I set out to do. I attended one two panels while there, the first being the KOTOBUKIA panel where they announced some of their upcoming releases. Which really

Just as it feels like I'm getting things together, everything falls apart again, and that I am just posting between one excuse to another. Having fixed my computer I was ready to begin the task of 'catching' up on posting, but life got in the way again. This time it was a my sister in laws niece, being only seven years old, having been diagnosed with leukemia. Needless to say that this was very abrupt and shocking to their family, but also to ours as we are very close to them. My father in

Hello? Tech Support? · 1:36pm Jun 11th, 2018

When it rains it pours. Say hello to my computer or rather my mildly expensive doorstop seeing as it is not longer wishing to function. While I am not computer wizard, I have narrowed down the problem to two possible scenarios.

1. I need a new motherboard.

2. The RAM sticks.

'May' I be excused? · 7:18am May 31st, 2018

Well I have nothing to say other than that I am continually inconvenienced by life in general. While fully recovering from my illness earlier this month, there had been a sudden change in management at my job to where the supervisor was fired abruptly and we were without one for quite a while. This literally compounded with three associates quitting and I being prompted to a assistant manager position. Which basically meant working 12 hours a day for three weeks early into May, training new

Smolder 800 · 2:06am May 8th, 2018

For the last two weeks I've been dealing with pneumonia. It has been exhausting, if not the most annoying sickness I've had to deal with in quite sometime. Having to go to work through most of it was the most trying of experiences.
