Still breathing--still living

Hi everyone, it's been a while, a long while, nearly too long for my liking. Hope you all been doing well. Me? Well, I've been busy (that's understated), but now I am entering a period of "ease" and seemingly more free time. With that, I hope to be around blogging more. But here's an update of what's been happening to me lately...in bullet form *pew pew*

  • Got accepted to a college: The Savannah College of Art and Design. They gave me a scholarship too, $5000. This school is in my top three, and everyone's been telling me how good of a college it is. I'm waiting for other acceptance letters, but this is a very likely choice.
  • Relationships take work, but it's been worth it though. My girlfriend bought me the Watchmen novel today as a birthday gift and I'm getting it on Wednesday. She's even more awesome for that.
  • Oh yeah, my birthday was Friday. 17, I don't feel 17 yet--whatever that is supposed to feel like. However, I look forward to buying M-Rated games, the first one: Fallout 3 (yes, I still did not purchase it)
  • And yeah, haven't been playing many games either. I plan to get some good sessions in very soon. The most I've been playing is Rock Band 2, which I absolutely love! I NEED to play Gears 2 single player and multiplayer. Also, I have Castle Crashers so if anyone wants to go for a whirl with me in that hit me up sometime.
  • Other than that, I've really been focusing on my artistic talents. I don't mean to sound pretentious in any way, besides you guys know I'm humble. But more and more people are recognizing my talents, it's  a wonderful feeling. I guess it's also because of all the inspiration I've been taking in lately.
  • Inspiration like our President-elect of course. By the way, I'm leaving for DC in a couple of hours for the inauguration! I'm friggin' ecstatic about it!

There's a lot else I need to list here, but I'll save it for later entries. Keep it cool folks, see ya later.

I know what you mean with the whole "not feeling 17" thing. What an incredibly underwhelming transition, especially given the fact that we can buy M-rated games now. Meh.

Grats on Watchmen, hope you enjoy it.

Yeah, there's no real "feeling" that you get from being a certain age, despite what some people seem to think.

Nice to see you back on here Ish.  Congrats on getting accepted into college.  That's always a relief when it happens.  Good news about the girlfriend, even though you've been letting us dudes hang because of her (just kidding, of course).

And finally, get Fallout 3.  Now.  Seriously, just drop what you're doing, get up, get out the door and go buy it.

Congratz on getting accepted! I really need to pick up the Watchmen novel,in anticipation for  the film.  Glad your still breathing, we need to play some games when things settle down.   Looking forward to watching the inauguration on TV tomorrow,that is a event you'll be telling your grand kids about one day.

Hit me up sometime Ish on Xbox live. I just finished watching the Inauguration. I look froward to telling my children, and their children about it.

 Damn son, you had some great reasons for not being around.  I'm proud man, you keep doing your thing.  I see some great successes in the future for you and if there's one thing Obama has taught individuals of all races everywhere, it's the fact there are no limits or excuses left for us to reach any goal or hight.   Don't mind me, everyone gets one mushy moment from me at least once.  :P

I'm glad to hear you're doing so well.  Congrats on the scholarship and acceptance.  I look forward to seeing some of your works when you become a fully trained art-Ish.  Sorry, that was lame.
