Oh Sandy

Hurricane Sandy has torn through Central New Jersey like nothing ever has. It’s not like what happened to New Orleans and it isn’t even close to what happened in Japan, but it’s the closest thing to a disaster that New Jersey has ever experienced.

It Has Its Moments

When I watched the first few episodes of Dusk Maiden of Amnesia I thought it was a little too far into the ecchi-harem-verse for me, and at first, it really is.

Are You An Otaku?

What is an otaku? One thing that everybody knows is that otaku like anime. But that’s too general a statement. There are many people in the world who like anime or have watched a few titles that they enjoyed, but you wouldn’t call those people otaku, would you?

I'm Alive!

As usual, it’s taken me weeks to update my journal. But I’m alive, and though I may not be entirely well, I’m hanging in there.

I’ve been reading Joley Skye and writing about an adorable yet sad rent boy. I’ve also been stressing about school and money and family issues. I’ve been cheering myself up by watching Queer As Folk, which I’m now hopeless addicted to.

I believe the last time I posted, I mentioned AnimeNext and Otakon. I did go to AnimeNext, with Justin and my brother Will. It wasn’t exactly thrilling. The prices for most of the merchandise was a little ridiculous. I didn’t buy anything and ended up having an alright time, where as last year I had an awesome time. The way things are looking, I won’t be going to Otakon, even though I’d like to. Money is a little too tight right now. I don’t even know if I’m going to be able to pay for school. So, yeah . . . stressing out.

Depressing shit aside, it’s summer. That means days off from work, and days off means time to write. I’ve got a lot of writing planned for the season. Rewriting Nashide, finishing Synergy and the short stories I stopped in the middle of. It’s a time to flesh out my fic journal and maybe send something out to a publisher.

Unfortunately, summer also means the kids are out of school and that means lots of noise all the time. Like most people, I have a difficult time writing when I’m too distracted by outside noise and chattering, ect. I only hope that I will be able to complete everything I’ve got planned for the next few months.

I also hope I can rustle up the money to pay for school, but that’s a whole ‘nother matter… One thing at a time, I guess.

As for today, my only priority is laundry. ^_~

Did you miss me, LJ account?

Ok, I realize that it’s been several weeks since I bothered to post anything, but I have a reasonable excuse. No I don’t. Rather than embarrassing myself by explaining that excuse, I think I’ll just move on.

Man, I'm so behind on everything. I haven't read a chapter of Bleach in forever. I have no idea what's going or if the manga ended already. If anyone could catch me up, I'd really appreciate it.

Anyway, this is basically going to be the best summer I’ve had in a long time. In June, I’m going to AnimeNEXT for one day. AnimeNEXT was actually the first anime convention I had ever been to. This will be my second time going, but since my first convention experience there, none of the cons near my home town could keep me away. Since then, I’ve been to Anime New York 2010 and MangaNEXT 2010, and I’ll be adding more cons to experience list in the near future.

In July, my friends and I are going to Otacon in Baltimore! I am seriously considering dressing like Dr. Hal Emmeric from Metal Gear because I’m just a dork like that. I’ll be Otacon at Otacon. ROFL! **runs off in search of a lab coat**

Book Report in a little while, but that’s it for now. I’m on a quest, bitches!

Book update and some griping

Finished reading The Happy Onion by Ally Blue today. Thoroughly enjoyed. ^_^

Also having some issues with my eReader. It refuses to sync with my library and it's driving me crazy. Emailed the support team. Waiting for a response.
Today, I finished reading ePistols At Dawn by Z. A. Maxfield. Instead of fumbling my way through an explanation of why this book = win, here's a copy of the email I sent to the author.

Dear, Z.A. Maxfield.
I finished reading your book ePistols At Dawn about twelve seconds ago and I just had to email you and tell you that this is one of the greatest books of my reading experience (and I’ve read a lot of books . . . gay fiction, specifically). No kidding. I finished it in just three days because I just couldn’t put it down. It’s just about the best thing ever. Thanks so much for writing that. You are amazing.
 
Sincerely,
my real name here

Seriously, read this book! It's beyond awesome.
