Well, it's been another two years since the last time I updated this... A bit has happened between then and now, but not much. I still don't drink or do drugs: I'm usually in a confused state of mind as is...

I pick up lots of little side-projects that I work on to varying degrees, and currently the biggest difficulty I'm having in my life is shifting my writing from being one of those "side-projects" into being an actual body of work that needs to get done. Oh yeah, I write a bit. Nothing majorly published, though people seem to like what I submit, so I guess there's that. I've got a ton of stories in my head, but to get them all out, I need peace, quiet, solitude, and a sense of security, and as such, I'm having difficulty working out of my parents house.

It's a vicious cycle I am in: I need money to move out, I need to move out to write, writing would provide my money, but I can't do it well until I move out. Which requires money. See my dilemma? Some day soon I'll have to, though. I'm nearly done getting my masters' degree in English, and after that? Well, I have no idea. I'd love to get writing professionally, but as every book on the subject (and common sense) dictate, it's neigh impossible to live off one's writing, unless you get MAJOR name recognition. (Stephen King was a fluke, and he attests to it.)

Mostly, my blog is where I post cool stuff, like a good blogger should. I also use it to keep in touch with my friends, find out what's going on in their lives, and give entertainment-related news for like-minded individuals. I'll also occasionally post creative works on here, though if I want to get paid for them, I probably shouldn't do so as often...
