It has been a while since I last wrote. I just took a short break I guess.
I made a Facebook page for my cat Alice today. She is one popular feline. I really do love her.
Weekends have been busy lately. Friends visiting from the city of Emporia have kept me occupied. Also, the Barber and I have been tackling some serious video game quests. Resident Evil 5 and Oblivion have been consuming most of our time. Speaking of the Barber, he and I will be roommates as of tomorrow. It won't be much of a change considering he is here most nights but making it official will be lovely.
I have been watching a lot of movies. Just recently, a friend and I delved into our childhood and watched The Neverending Story. It is a lot different watching it as an adult, but the nostalgia is overwhelming.
Anime, though I never thought I would get in to it, has lately been prevalent on my television screen. Mostly classics such as Akira, Ninja Scroll, and Princess Mononoke. They are all stunningly eye-catching and the animation is impeccable. It seems to be an untapped well in my life and is definitely worth exploring further.
On a recommendation from a friend, I started reading a book series by Robert Jordan entitled, The Wheel of Time. From what I have read so far, Jordan's writing seems to be a tribute to J.R.R. Tolkien's genre and style of writing. There are 12 books to this series so it is a large task for me to take on. But, it so far it seems to be unquestionably well written.
The first session of the Dungeons and Dragons campaign is nearly here. I know in my previous post I had stated that the end of September would be the starting date, but our DM has been busy. I started my character sketch today and I'm hoping that the simplicity of the art won't deter from the strength of my character. After many nights of contemplation, I chose to be an Elven ranger. We also have a Paladin and a Druid. It should prove to be a worthwhile campaign.
Searching for a job has proved futile. 3 months and 37 applications later I am still jobless and now, nearly penniless. It is beyond aggravating to want to work and not be able to. Hopefully fortune will soon shine is glowing warmth upon my life.
The Christmas season is nearing and as each day is crossed off the calendar, my mood slowly rises into a state of pure bliss. The decorations are soon going to make their way out of the boxes and cheer will burst from the seams of my home. Just this evening, the Barber and I watched The Muppet Christmas Carol in the hopes of sparking the Christmas spirit. I'm feeling merrier by the minute.
