After a very relaxing week at home in Pennsylvania for Spring Break, I’m heading back to Virginia today, to finish the last part of the school year. I’ve had a challenging, stressful time this year, and I’m gonna have a lot of hard work ahead of me these last two months. Having said that, I’ve come a long way since last September, and I’m going to see this through to the best of my ability. One final push before summer…Say a prayer for me, and wish me luck! :-)

Been listening to these two tracks from the Halo 3 soundtrack a lot these last few days…Excellent music, and I think that their track titles are very fitting, as well. :-)

Quick opinion from fellow #Marvel fans: My Dad & I have been watching the individual Avengers movies in preparation for going to see Winter Soldier. We just finished watching The Avengers, and I was wondering how important you figured it would be for him to see Iron Man 3 & Thor: The Dark World before we go see Winter Soldier. I’ve seen Iron Man 3 myself, but I haven’t seen Thor: The Dark World yet, and I’m also way behind on the Agents of Shield TV show (only made it about 3 episode in before I got sidetracked by work). Thoughts?

Even in the darkest moments, you can always find something that’ll make you smile.

Wow! I was just playing WoW on my Alliance destro warlock, & saw that someone in trade was selling the “Sealed Tome of the Lost Legion” for 4,000 gold. My warlock is a long way off from 90 and doing the green fire questline (and I know it’s not super tough to farm, just time consuming), but I was curious how reasonable a price that was, so I asked folks in my guild (CTR Nalak on Aerie Peak US) chat what they thought of the price. I got some varied opinions, and a minute later, someone else in the guild whispered me & asked if I’d bought the Tome yet. When I said no, he/she said that they had bought one for me off the AH for 3K gold! I tried to get them to take compensation for at least part of the cost (I’ve got a lot of gold on both my warlock and my pally main), but they refused, saying it was on them!

With everything you hear about how a lot of folks who play WoW can be rude & thoughtless, this is an awesome example of how very, very cool & helpful people can be, and why I’m very glad to have joined the CTR guild community!

My experience down here in Virginia has been—and continues to be—very challenging, frustrating, and lonely. Having said that, knowing that I have family & friends back home who are pulling for me, as well as online friends—some of whom I’ve met, and others I haven’t met yet—who are pulling for me, gives me a great deal of strength & comfort. God Bless you all, and thank you for having my back. :-)

This is more entertaining to watch & listen to than it probably should be… :-)

I’d say Bioware chose very wisely when they picked her to play a genetically perfect woman in the Mass Effect games… :-)

Trying to come up with ideas for meeting new people around or not too far from  or maybe the DC area who are enthusiastic about comics, video games, pop culture, & so forth, but I’m really having a hard time thinking of things. Tried looking for things like a “Browncoats” group around Richmond, for example, but I can’t find anything current or active. Any suggestions, anyone?
