The End Draws Near...

As ominous as the title may be, it is actually created with the most positive thoughts in mind. I am nearing the end of my college career, and I will finally be moving into the real world! I have a couple odd jobs lined up for the time until I can find a more solid location to live.

As much as I have enjoyed college life, I am fairly glad to be through with it. I enjoy class, but I just have lost the enjoyment of being in such an awkward point in my life. Paying to work is not exactly a very fulfilling way to live for such a long period of time. But! I shall move forward with plans for the better :)

In gaming related news, the Journey into Nyx pre-release is swiftly arriving, and I am quite excited to participate. I am not 100% sure as to the impact the set will have on any of my decks in Standard, but I can solidly say that I have new ideas brewing. In addition, there have been some fantastic cards released out for my Modern deck (which requires a single copy of Inkmoth Nexus), and legacy burn is slowly (try snail's pace) coming together for any sort of potential legacy event.

40k has also been happening recently. About two weeks ago, there was another 40k Games Day event. I brought out the Tau for a spin. Once again, I am just astounded by the amount of firepower this army can wield. Even an overall weak unit in the Fire Warriors can unleash a hellish storm of ionized pain. I won 2 out of 3 of my games, and I took Best Sportsmanship! This is the third time I have been nominated Best Sportsmanship at a 40k event, and while people may see it as the Bunny Trophy, I'll take it. As Arkham Games 40k organizer, I like having that award more than anything. It shows that people enjoy my gaming, and it tells me that I have gained a certain respect. That's a rewarding feeling.

Computer gaming has taken a recent upswing. I have been playing a number of games that have been sitting on my Steam account for some time, including Dawn of War 2 and Starcraft 2. It has been fun to finally get around to these games and experience them for the first time.

I am also hoping that I can make a big time return to blogging. I love to write, and this allows me to explore that love on a more personal level.
