Kinda still up in the air a bit I guess, mix of school and part times trying to get into my career path. Changing majors kinda delayed me quite a bit, but something that had to be done. Im progressing though I think, so im fine with how things are going.
Good to hear things are going pretty well with you - last I heard, you had found a girl with two kids who all like vanguard, is that going well as well?
Yep! I'm engaged, and getting married in April. Currently living with them, though still working on selling my house, which if things go smoothly, will be done by the end of November. With my work schedule and the family life, I'm not able to attend as many tournaments as I used to, but I still managed to become Vancouver Regional Champion this year, which was pretty special to do so with the kids and my fiancee there cheering me on. Going to Continentals in LA in November.
Current job is also going well and I really like the company I'm working for, took a few years before I found one I liked again after I lost my job of 5-6 years due to layoffs.
Still writing, though not as many comics on the go these days, mainly just The Lone Swordsman now as I can never seem to find a reliable artist for the others. The Lone Swordsman is just about done its 47th chapter.
Voice acting is a bit on hold lately due to the move, but I did get to do some professional auditions. Director seemed to like me, but I didn't get the role, sadly.
After I did a Skype Youtube interview about my Regionals win, I'm thinking of trying to do a YouTube channel of my own. Could be fun.
Nice! Both on the married thing and the regional champ, though more on the married :P
Always good to hear. Its always a lot easier to work for a company that you are invested in.
I havent read that in a long time xd, maybe i should next time i have some free time.
Always annoying when life forces ya to put things on hold lol, even if its for a good reason. At least the director liking you means likely more audtions down the line.
I might look for that interview xd, and let me know if you start a channel, Ill at least check it out
On an addiontional note, you have no idea how close I was to coming back when I heard Granblue was meta now xd. More so I could watch it myself than to abuse it xd - the very concept of that makes me die laughing :P
At a hotel right now about to make a 5 hour drive home, after I get back Ill watch the video and take down those FCs. If anyone wants to put up their FCs for Sun Moon Ill pu those up, but just dont want to leave FCs up from people who havent OKed it in that long xd
Xeamnz we got new forms for Nightmist and Nightstorm as well as alt arts for Ruin Shade and Sea Strolling Banshee :O (there's also alt arts for Skeleton Assault Troops Captain and Dragon Undead, Skull Dragon which I know you like, but they haven't been shown yet) Oh yeah and Duke is back. But anyway, how goes life?
i actually had seen the new nightmist from something in in the wiki activity page xd. but ooh, new nightstorm...and ruin shade art :). and you have no idea how close new art on skull dragon plus the new nightmist got to bringing me back...but sadly, still no time, money, or local scene...so yeah xd.
as for life, busy - got a couple part time jobs to go with college. I changed majors about 2 years ago, so had to redo quite a bit of classes :(. Spend what free time is left on league or anime watching xd
Currently trying to find entry level positions into accounting, but thats not easy :P
EDIT: Granblue was ever not a choice???? BLASPHEMY!!!!
(jk, i have no idea whats been going on in this game for a very long time xd)
Oh and by the way Xeamnz, a fully automated free to play (there are optional in game transactions but all non-event cards can be gotten without spending any money) Vanguard game is being released in Steam pretty soon. That would solve the issue of no money or local scene, all you would need is the free time (and unlike playing IRL at card shops, CFO can be played at any time of the day). The only problem is that it only has cards from season 5 or later (including cards that have been reprinted like Rough Seas Banshee and Ruin Shade). You would still be able to play the new Nightmist, just not the old one. At least not yet anyway, they're going to add the older cards eventually, just not right at the start. Maybe think about giving it a try when it's released? :P
Nah lol, the commerce degree is more of a fall back option in case I decide that I'm not earning enough money doing teaching. I'm specifically looking to do primary/elementary school teaching actually.
Oh and what's your Steam name so I can add you? I haven't used Steam in a while but I'll be using it a lot once CFO is released
lol tach, patience I do have usually... the issue is more i tend to forget about things im being patient with lol. (aka while waiting fothe old cards i probably would forget about the game entirely xd)
@Mr ah gotcha - I guess since most of my teachers are part time teachers part time business/econ people im just used to that lol. Smart to have fall back plans, though i hope the teaching thing works for ya.
It actually had been my name a while back xd, just changed it recently - "Captain Xeamnz". I go thru spurts on how often I am on steam, but i have been on a fair bit more in the last year - if you go thru their bargain bins during sales, you can find some real gems sometimes. This War of Mine and Mount and Blade are two cheap games Ive found lately on there, and put around 100 hours into each one...which again remember im time limited, so thats saying something about how good these games can be :)
Searching Xeamnz on Steam doesn't give any results Dx
If you search for HyperElementalz on Steam you should be able to add me, I haven't changed it since I first created the account 3 years ago so I know for a fact it'll come up in the search results. I haven't actually played on Steam in almost 3 years lol, only game I played was DOTA 2 which I put about 4 hours into. My laptop isn't the most reliable with games other than simple ones like online card games so I usually play on console instead. I am looking to get an actual PC though, so I'll definitely be using Steam more when that happens.
Sent. Yeah i getcha - i just got a lenovo y50 last year (was nearly broke for a while after that, but well worth xd) - before that i had some problems with some games. Eventually im going to switch back to desktops since they are more powerful, but atm the mobilty of a laptop fits me better.
The alternate art for Skull Dragon has been revealed (and it's super badass too), figured you'd like to see it:
Also I'm not sure if you're a One Piece fan or not but if you are, the new Perfect Guard is a Ghostie that's totally using Gomu Gomu no Fusen (Ghostie Ghostie no Fusen?) which I thought was pretty neat:
Shin: Yeah im sorry aichi I would fight you and all but we haven't established how OP nubas are and lets face it you don't even know what that is yet ! so me pulling out muras would just outright twist the world into a wibbly wobby mess...so heres misaki, have fun k bye !
It probably wont happen but I really hope we get to see shin pull a misaki level death stare ~
Yeah lol, it's easily one of my favourite anime of all time. It's a shame that it finished and that the sequel manga ended up being super short (though they are making it into a movie so I can't wait for that)
Season 1 was a bit meh imo but seasons 2 and 3 are super good
Hey! Im in Manhattan for Engineering Day, and I remembered you saying a long time ago that you went to K-State. I just figured that I could give you a heads up that I was in town and that if I saw anybody on campus cardfighting I'd ask about you.
Lol, i actually havent been in manhattan for about a year now, my academic plan lately has been kinda bouncing all over the place xd. Thanks for the heads up though, but yeah these days i mostly stick to the KC area, and that might or might not change even over the fall... i dunno at this point where im gonna be lol. And good luck finding anyone to cardfight xd, when i was there never found a local scene for anything other than magic :(.
Hope you are doing well man, good luck with engineering if thats what you are looking at!
