Well I think it’s about time for another update. These past few months since my… reorganization of priorities… at the beginning of the year have gone surprisingly well.

I’m still working the same job and still hate every minute of it but I’m getting more hours and the people I work with are all good people so I really shouldn’t complain.

The biggest news is that after 12 straight months of mind numbing work, I’ve got my master of fine arts degree. That’s right everyone, MFA in Creative Writing. I walked, got my name called, shook hands with the university president, and got my fancy diploma cover. Plus, I get to keep the wizard robes.

Now I get to have all of the fun of hunting for work that I can use to make a name for myself as a writer. I plan on taking freelance jobs where I can while working on my own novels. One thing I studied in depth is how to go about approaching agents, something that aspiring writers need but they also need a reputation to sell along with their work.

On the other hand, I’ve been doing well personally. My new year’s resolution, if you will, to make changes in the people I put up with has been a difficult transition to make but one that I am glad I made, as I am much happier now. My health has become more of a priority and I’ve been successful in spending more time with those who’ve stuck by me through the thick of things.

I have a lot of people I’d like to thank and just as many who I’d love to spend more time with, if possible, including a certain someone who’s done immensely more than I ever could have asked for despite her own troubles.

Despite everything that has happened, it still boggles my mind as to what some people will do out of selfishness or spite. Lie, steal, insult, betray. Nothing I can do about it though, even those who claim they want to help usually are only out for themselves.

In other news, my plans to build my own role-play forum (Set in the Star Wars Universe in the early years of the Jedi Order) are beginning to come together and gain a small amount of traction. I hope to get things going in full once I get home in a few days. All are of course welcome to come and check it out and join if they wish. Your support would be greatly appreciated!
