I lost my job. I started this thought dump thing where I wrote down everything I couldn't say so I could get it out of my head and it said some unflattering things about a new coworker. I accidentally left it pulled it up at work and someone went through it. It's my fault for leaving it up but that was a personal journal and I wish I knew who went through it so I could chew them out. It's been nearly 2 weeks now. I'm running out of safety net. This is going to get interesting.
(Title may or may not be relevant, but it was the first thing that came to mind so whatever)
For those of you who follow my pony writing,(that looks a lot stranger typed out for some reason) I've been stewing on something for about a week now and after consulting with ShyYoungBrony (my personal second opinion and damn near everything these days) I've made a decision.
"In the Name of the Moon" is getting a rewrite.
"A Fresh Perspective" was a dead storyline and at this point it's beginning to drag down were I want this new plot to go, so I'm starting from the ground up.The story as it is now will be preserved in an unpublished chapter which you can find here if you need it for some bizarre reason, and as soon as I have a new first chapter ready all published chapters will be removed.
I've wrestled with this story for quite a while now and I'm really hoping this is the the key to getting where I want to go with it. I've got so much planned out in my head but there was too much baggage in between the here and there.
Oh cool, a new blog system. Wait, it's been in place for like 2 weeks? Huh... I should keep up with things more...
Anyways, hello! And for those precious few who followed my old journal, hello again! Seeing as I live the majority of my life under a rock, I only noticed the blog tab after it was pointed out to me when I realized my journal was in dead topics. Who knows, maybe since I've been flushed out of my journal I'll be a bit more active around here. *spoiler alert, probably not. I'm terrible about maintaining activity unless prompted*
I guess I'll just kinda start over then. I'm Cavemonkynick. Aliases include, Nicholas, Nick, The Monky, Pallon-O-Death (trying to phase that one out), Son (my boss kinda calls everyone that), Darling (my boss again, seems to only use that one for me... must be the hair), I Don't Know (friend at work, we call him "I Don't Care") and That Guy With the Beard and Jesus Hair. I'm 22, 23 in less than a month, I live at home to help take care of my dad who's gotten... spacey lately, and I work at Ellis Travel Trailers selling RV's and RV accessories. Five days a week, I upload LP's to YouTube. They're alright, mostly just me spouting random crap while re-playing some of my favorite games. I'm a bit of an aspiring writer, though my output is atrocious and entirely fanfiction so make of that what you will.
That's pretty much it. I guess I'll just pick up with what I was going to post originally.
It seems that Georgia weather has finally stopped being a stubborn jerk and actually cooled off a bit. I even got to break out my N7 jacket for wok this morning.
SPEAKING OF N7!
For those of you who play Mass Effect 3, November 7th is coming, and we all know what that means. It's time for a multiplayer binge. Cerberus troops, the remaining rouge Geth, the Reaper Forces, and the Collectors Reborn will be pushing on all fronts and once again, we few will unite to protect our homes.
Ok, so I'm being over-dramatic, sue me. I'll be devoting the entire Friday to dusting off my Black Widow and having some fun. If any of you out there own and play ME3 on 360, I'd love to take the field with you. Jon will be with me most of the day so I've got at least 2 dedicated slots to fill and, while I haven't spoken with him about this yet, I imagine ShyYoungBrony will be hanging around in TeamSpeak with us possibly running a PC fireteam. Maybe. Anyways, if your interested just hit me up in the comments or a pm and we'll exchange gamertags and work out details. It'll be fun.
See ya' around the galaxy folks,
Hey everybody. I am Cavemonkynick, or just Nick for short. I'm currently 19 and am in my second semester at East Georgia College. I joined SFO a few years back but never really strayed to far past the Fan-Fiction fourm. Latley I've been getting a little more active, parcially due to my girlfriend joining the navy. She kinda was my social life, save like three other people, so yea.
I sunk myself back into my fanfic for a while and got a bunch done. A buddy of mine dropped in on me a few weeks ago and finally read it and sugested I do a raido play. Sp i put it out there and got decent responce but best of all got to meet some really awesome people, you know who you are:) and whether they know it or not they really have helped me through a extreamly hard time in my life.
I won't go into all the details but Bailey (my girlfriend) and are very close. Weve been together for almost 4 years (October 24) and so when she left for boot and i couldn't see or or even talk to her, my world was shattered. An entire piece of my life was gone and i didn't know what to do with myself. Now this was all six weeks ago. About 3 weeks ago is when I got back into this fourm. While I still feel that missing piece, i found people i can talk to and get my mind off of her not being here. It also helps that she graduates a week from friday and i'll finally be with her again.
So anyways, i think this will sort of be a place where i can just lay out thoughts and stuff and hopefully get some input. For this one I've got a second project I've technicly been working on in my head for years but just started writing a week or so ago. Heres the first paragraph:
My story doesn’t start with “Once upon a time,” or “Long ago, in a land unknown”. Heck, my story doesn't even start with me. It isn’t about a knight in shining armor or single hero starting from nothing building an army and overcoming impossible odds. It’s not about searching for a lost artifact that holds the power to save the world. It’s not about romance or forbidden love. It’s about a man and two of his closest friends fighting for what they believe in. It’s about facing your demons and trusting your heart. I am Tomas Aran… and this is my story.
So tell me what you think, an if you'd like to see more.
Welp untill next time, thanks for listening... reading... whatever:)
