What I'm Watching:

Random Thoughts for February 2016

Life has been busy. Between starting a new job and putting all the final touches on the book, free time has been limited but dammit if it isn't extremely fulfilling. I'm the type of person that is only really happy when I'm progressing with my goals and can see the results right in front of me. So having a completed book, that I've gone over with a fine tooth comb, sitting in front of me is one of the more satisfying experiences I've had in my life. I can only imagine how I'll feel when I actually have a physical copy in front of me.

My "Battlestar Galactica" binge has been halted. Otherwise I may have
ended up finishing the entire series in just a manner of weeks which may not have been deemed healthy. See, my Bluray for Season 3 had an error and they gave me two Disc 3's and zero Disc 1's. Simple mistake that I thought Universal had taken care of promptly but they made yet another mistake and sent me Season Three Disc 3 AGAIN. And on DVD. I just can't catch a break. So it's been almost two months since this whole ordeal has started and it still isn't resolved. I'm not sure if I'll ever get the correct disc.

Go play some "Life is Strange." I kept hearing of it being placed on all sorts of Game of the Year lists, but something failed to intrigue me. Then Marc made a blind buy over Christmas Break, and that was that. As soon as I started it, the characters immediately hooked me. Max and Chloe are two of the best characters I've ever encountered in the medium of video games. While the story contributes to that, the acting by these women is truly inspiring and provides a whole new world of artistry. By the time the game ended, I was absolutely bawling at the journey the developers brought me on. Even now, going over the events of the game in my head, I'm getting a little sad. It hits that deep. While I can't say I'll be revisiting it anytime soon due to care for my own mental wellness, I can't encourage you enough to play one of the greatest games ever made.

"The Crimson Summer" is coming! I have an editor and cover artist and I'm slowly starting to figure out a release date but it's looking like late April. It's crazy that this is even happening since I've always dreamed of releasing a book but didn't think it'd be plausible so young. It should be available for pre-order next month, so keep an eye out so you don't miss it.

Trying to reconnect with my childhood for some reason. For me, that means that I've been watching some movies that were a big part of my youth that I hadn't seen in some time. It's been primarily Disney movies which has made it an interesting experience. Rewatching Aladdin reminded me why I loved it so much as a kid.

Marc helped me build a computer. Which means I finally actually have a computer. It's taken a little getting used to since I haven't had a desktop in many years. Still, I'm excited to be able to actually have some kind of computer in my room that isn't just a cellphone. The random need to write comes up to often for me and therefore a lot of writing happened on my phone. Not exactly the most ideal solution so I'm glad that I'll have a better outlet. Especially once I start the second book.

I recently turned 25 and nothing changed. I guess I was expecting some kind of big change, like with past years, but this one was just another change. Sure, my insurance changes but that's not exactly something that's not manageable. It's nice though, my own father had a four-year-old and a eight-year-old at this age. I have no responsibility that even comes close to that. It's both a relief and something that's risen my respect-level for those that do it.

I'm still deciding on Book Two. I have several ideas for what I want to do, but I still haven't quite made the decision as to which one I'm going for. I have one idea completely plotted out, another outlined, and others just brewing around in my head. I won't make that decision until after Crimson Summer has been released, so as not to distract myself, but the thought has still been lingering. There are a lot of choices to be made and the possibilities have me quite excited.
