What has been happening? A lot. When last we left our intrepid blogger, he was waist deep in a tragic and often times frustrating divorce. Well that got finalized and "Crazy" is officially not my problem anymore. I had started a job, was finishing a movie, and trying to find some sort of balance in life. It took a fair bit of time, a lot of support from friends and family, but things did actually turn around.
Still have the same joby-job, which is interesting, challenging, and on every third Wednesday very rewarding.
I met a girl, dated a girl, and married a girl and she is fantastic.
I ran a DnD 4e game for over two years with a new gaming group. I'm playing in a 5e game that succeeded that campaign. I have taken up playing Fantasy Flights X Wing, which our group has invested quite a bit into a fantastic fleet of ships. I'm back to painting miniatures (mostly my vast backlog of Reaper Bones and my share of the X Wing ships). Since my last post, I have reunited some of my college gaming group and fused them with my current gaming group for an Annual Epic Game! Year 1 (2013) was an eight hour session with some memorable moments and a lot of laughs. The group enjoyed the game some much that it was decided to have another game the following year. So in 2014, in lieu of a traditional bachelor party, I ran the Second Annual Epic Game. It was as much fun as the previous year, and I was almost foiled as the GM by a clever player who completely short circuited my final encounter (I had to improvise...quickly and fiercely). As of this post, I am less than one week out from the next game, and quite excited about the prospect.
They have re-surged in my life. I've jumped on the Minecraft bandwagon, playing and hosting multiple servers over the last three years. I dig Titanfall, am so looking forward to Battlefront 3, and The Division later this year.
I've reduced my Facebook presence (there has been a lot of weird developments in FB-land recently), I am using G+ more (although it my be dying off), Twitter is fun, obviously I'm doing a terrible job blogging, but I've also launched a YouTube channel about gaming. It brings together my friends who love video games, and my passion for creating content (Bad Blogger!!!). So I'll leave you with some Digital MEs! Enjoy...
