Will be stepping back into these space shoes very soon · 4:22am Apr 10th, 2013

Had some major delays, mostly related to life. I've determined that guitar is my instrument, so there goes fifteen to thirty minutes of my day right there. (As well as a good part of my money, as I have Guitar Acquisition Syndrome.)

Stargazing (Pt. 1) · 6:10am Jan 24th, 2013

So tonight I felt like stargazing. Astronomy had always been something of an interest of mine, but I've just begun to be mature enough for actual backyard astronomy instead of sitting in a chair, staring at a screen and oohing and awing at how beautiful the universe is with color enhanced images from Hubble.

Suggested Reading, part 1 · 5:10am Jan 7th, 2013

So, some notes on my selection of books.

The Stars, a childhood favorite. I always like the nighttime sky better than the daytime one, and dreamed of becoming an astrophysicist. I still want to, but in this economy it may be infeasible take a traditional route.

“I’m afraid Mr. Abendroth isn’t quite the kind man he was before the werewolves got his son,” the young male said. “And seeing so many settlements fall so quickly has disturbed him greatly.”

“I see,” Twilight said, suddenly feeling remorse for the man. She then look to the young male. “Thank you for standing up for me.”

“I’m afraid my motives are entirely selfish, but you're welcome,” James replied. “Tell me again, though, where do you come from?”

Eight hundred words so far... · 11:59am Dec 30th, 2012

So, I've started writing the story again. I'm going all in. I'm going avoid the problem of exposition so far to focus the first "chapter" entirely on surviving the Hollowhedge massacre and leading the refugees to relative safety. The issue of exposition can be solved by one of the several planeswalkers who are wandering through Innestrad at the moment. Heck, get to RD in Ravnica and you could even have Jace the Flankhole
Mindmage aid in that.

Story related post · 9:29am Dec 29th, 2012

So, yesterday I got all of my wisdom teeth taken out in one go. I choose to be awake for the procedure, which wasn’t that bad until we got to the lowers. Good news is, no more toothaches. Bad news is, the sockets hurt, I can’t close my mouth all the way without pain, I’m stuck on anti-biotics and pain killers, and I can’t drink any Dr. Pepper for three days.

New Year, New Start · 9:54am Dec 27th, 2012

First, let me begin by thanking the kind(ish) people at Spacebattles.com. Unfortunately, around election time the site culture began to rub me the wrong way. I was beginning to have my doubts before that, of course. But after some events involving loved ones, as well as what happened to my grades this semester, I began to reevaluate my life. I realized that spending so much time on an internet forum, "talking" to pixels that I will never meet, when I have flesh and blood people that I care
