Temporary Haitus is Temporary

In case you haven't noticed by my lack of posts, school is trying to kill me.

It's been a rough few months kicking off my senior year, which started with the loss of my car in a flash flood. You read that right. New England was quickly becoming a sea of despair when I returned home from Los Angeles this summer.

With graduation coming up I'm more determined than ever to get this show on the road. I'll be getting my BFA in Photography this May so a lot of the year has been spent preparing my senior thesis. I also a final photography show coming up in April, so that's always something. I'll have to post up more of my work as it nears.

Additionally, within the past month I've restarted work at GameStop, now that I have a temporary whip to facilitate the process of arrival. Despite being a retail job, I really do enjoy being able to yammer with random people about videogames on a tri-weekly basis. Keeps me alive, fills me glee, etc etc. It's been one of the few things that have restored my sanity amongst the cavalcade of papers, critiques and presentations that have been running me into the ground post-sickness and Connecticut power outages. But I digress with such murky uncharacteristically depressive, sullen news.

NYCC goodness. && the crazy November snowstorm that hit CT

On the gaming front I did manage to finish up American McGee's Alice: Madness Returns. And I must say, it was quite an enjoyable journey. Currently I find myself entrenched in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, or as I like to call it Deu Sex. Adam Jensen is the coolest old dude ever, despite that time I punched through a wall only to realize I apparently can't survive a 5 ft drop without a particular augment. I DIDN'T ASK FOR THIS.

With first semester coming to a rapid close, and winter break coming up I'm definitely planning some epic Skyrim hibernation for my future. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't really looking forward to that - binary code snuggie and Twink unicorn pillow pet are set and at the ready (I clearly have no shame at all what-so-ever)!

OH HAI sessy Halo 3 controller I picked up from a trade at work. xD Best combo, evar.

Also random- Guild Wars 2, I'm looking at you. Y U NO OUT YET? I think it's because the world is preparing itself for the day I buy a new PC. *schwing schwing*

I sympathize. This year has a rough and weird time to live in the North East. Lost power for 9 days in November.

Good luck with your courses

Thank you man. That means worlds. Sometimes life doesn't always plan out the way you expect it to. Happy to take away the experiences at the end of the day though!
