Everyone's life updates

How is everyone doing? It's been years.

Let's all share and update on our lives. Obviously starting with our residential moderator Flak and Alar, with our long time bull KCG and icon artist, Saki. Our lurker, Saurus, and MSOB and perhaps any members that I may have missed? (Like the really long Russian name.)

Updates? I need no updates. My core mechanics run smoothly, my content need not exceed the enjoyable gameplay. I am the classic default, the trusty go-to when the shiny new sparks lose their glimmer. The steady old-timer, bug-free after endless refining of the base formula.

That is to say, little has changed on my end. Still working the same job, living in the same place, reading books, enjoying the odd computer-game, making trips. I’m consistent like that.

I haven't done any art at all recently (or not-recently for that matter), let alone things that blow minds. Well, I did happen to have started something yesterday that I'll put up here whenever it's completed, though at my glacial pace that might be a while.

Updates...
I just moved in with my girlfriend and the latest expansion to Card Hunter, which I designed in conjunction with Penny Arcade, came out a couple weeks ago. In early June I'm going to Denver for the national convention of my socialist party. Fun times all around.

I've moved to what I think is my 10th residence since first coming to the New York Metro Area, this time to a place so close to work I can walk to it in less than an hour (meaning no expensive monthly metro card!). I also got a promotion at work, which has come with interesting new responsibilities and a generally higher feeling of purpose in my career.

I recently bought Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Warriors Legends for the 3DS and I'm not very good at it. Then I remembered I'm just not that good at video games that require more than immediate reaction to my surroundings. So that's a quarter century of life down the drain.

I ran my second half-marathon in March and am running another this month. After this I think I'll stop because running is very painful. I like hiking a lot more anyways.

I almost started attending college twice, the first of which was halted due to a crisis of belief, and the second because I simply realize I don't want to.

I was briefly a member of the Republican Party, but after my move I've switched to the Libertarian Party.

Oh a far more personal note that I doubt any of you could really comprehend, I've also quit Evangelical Protestantism a few months ago and after briefly considering Anglicanism and Catholicism am presently a catechumen in the Eastern Orthodox Church.

I hath been summoned! I missed typing in "cold hard words."

catechumen in the Eastern Orthodox Church.


It's a roundabout path to russophilia but I'll get you there. Or is it a non-Russian branch?

I applied to a game design job in Denver. I'm pretty sure I'm in the final batch of candidates but they're moving slowly. In the meantime I am writing articles from home, as I've been doing for a couple years.

It's ROCOR, so quite Russian, though the parish I attend conducts services in English so that's a plus. Still, it's at the Synod Cathedral so lots of Russians.

I struggle to find employment, sadly. I have one lead that might pan out, but if it doesn't, I'm going to need to find a part-time job ASAP.

Other than that, I'm doing okay. Glad to hear you're all well!

KCG posted a silly dare on Facebook and unfriended me when I took the bait.

:bull: :ajsleepy:
