I'm dropping in, mostly, because it was a request by [livejournal.com profile] grammardog to celebrate her birthday, and any reason to celebrate Sara is a worthwhile one.

But I also still love and long for the good old days of LiveJournal, and I don't know why I don't spend the time here like I used to, other than peer pressure maybe. Facebook is almost a bane to my mental health, but all the effing-loved ones are there, so I have allowed it to overthrow my better judgement. Maybe I'll get a clue some day.

I guess there's not a lot going on with me right now. I got laid off last year, so I'm in a stasis, and I don't really know what's going to happen. I am, at least, looking forward to finally marrying The Girl this coming October. We just got back from a trip up to Red Bluff where we're planning the ceremony at a friend's parents' place (extremely kind and accommodating of them), so the next few months will be mostly about that.

And I'm doing comics now, finally. I know I talked about my love of comics a lot here, and made some noise about how it was something I was desperate to do myself some day. Well, it's finally happened. I've been co-writing a strip called Baujahr for the last year or so (off and on), which is published in a magazine in Michigan called Flint Comix. I've done a couple one-off stories as well. Overall, it's a start on something I hope to take even further in the future, but it's incredibly fun and better than I imagined, honestly. Different, but I can't imagine being happier than I am each month those new strips hit (and weekly, when I post them up on our web site).

Oh, and I finally beat NaNoWriMo last November. Wrote a truly ugly fifty thousand words, but it was a win on my third attempt and I'll take it.

All in all... I think I like LiveJournal. Maybe I can do this again some time.
