It's Been a Long Day - Part Deux

So in other news...

Did you know Blood Testament - The Harbinger also takes place in the greater Philadelphia region like its prequel? It does indeed! We begin in a little place called Belmont.

Those of you who know me... Really know me... You know why I picked this location.

It Lives!

Cheapo HP Laptop. Oh yeah.
I went out and bought a replacement laptop yesterday. I can now continue on about going on about goings on in my fictitious little Philadelphia story. Between being hounded from all sides, a new device to play with, and dreams telling me how to write this scene or that, I guess I'm now fully equipped to begin again.

It's a shame so much time is wasted working and such. If I could find a way to earn enough to live and eat and write without having to waste so much time "earning a living" I would be a happier person overall. I don't need things and I don't want things other than my utmost essentials, to be quite honest. I can live without a phone, without a Playstation, without an internet - no sweat.

What I need is to feel useful and to say that what I did today mattered to someone somewhere. That was the biggest draw to my fields of study. Architecture - I got to design structures that are (semi-) permanent and the emergency service buildings we built aided persons and communities that I'm sure I'll never know. Elementary Education - I shouldn't even have to list the reasons why going to education should be found useful. The problem is that teachers can't be the teachers they dreamed of becoming. But I digress.

I'm going to write again. Real soon. Promise.

Keep nagging though. Can't hurt.

Mute Button

As nice as it is to have received a free iPad from my father a few weeks ago, it does not quite replace the functionality of a full-fledged laptop. If one can consider a laptop to be full-fledged in the first place.

The appearance of the tablet just so happened to coincide with the demise of my writing vehicle, the much-loved Toshiba Satellite I received a mere two years or so prior. Thankfully, I had backed up my entire writing folder of original works, concept images, final copies, etc. into my Google drive in November. Otherwise, the tone of this post would be much more... volatile. As it stands now, I just need to get out there and pick up a new piece of equipment. I can only take this iPad virtual keyboard for so long. And with that, I bid you adieu. Til later. Of course.
