Back in Black

Well, duders, it's certainly been awhile since I last posted a blog here. I guess the Whiskeyocalypse got me thinking that I should visit more than just the video content for the site. 

In the long, long months since I've been gone, a ton of stuff has happened. Here's just a taste of what's been going on:

  • I went to college. Specifically, I began my studies in English Literary Studies  (which I later changed to Cinema and Screen Studies and added Creative Writing as a second major) at the State University of New York at Oswego.  
  • I've joined the school newspaper, The Oswegonain,  as a Staff Writer focusing mainly on movie, game, and music reviews, as well as the occasional opinion piece. As of a few days ago, I've even become the new Copy Editor for the paper, which is definitely going to be an exciting opportunity.
  • I've been kicking ass academically, joining the Honors Program and maintaining a healthy 3.33 GPA.
  • My writing has kept on going strong, be it through academic papers, the aforementioned newspaper pieces, or stories and responses for my fiction class.
  • I actually met Fallout 3 designer Jeff Gardiner when he gave a talk at my school for the Creative Writing "Living Writers" Series. He's a pretty cool dude.
  • As usual, I watched a lot of movies, and played a lot of games.

So what's happening now that I'm back? 

  • For starters, I'll be writing more blog posts. Expect some pretty awesome things from me in the next few months.
  • I'm thinking of writing some user reviews for a change, now that I've got some newspaper experience. Reviewing stuff on this site allows me to be a little more in-depth and opinionated than in the newspaper, as I don't have to worry about writing for people who aren't game enthusiasts. 
  • I might actually decide to brave the wretched hive of scum and villainy that is the forums.
  • Some other miscellaneous cool shit might happen. 

Again, I'm back, and I'm ready to chew bubblegum and kick ass like never before!
