    Interdimensional, at the moment. At least there's Wi-Fi.
  • Interests
    Books, of course! Sanderson's most of all, but I enjoy a good Mull, Rowling, Riordan, Paolini, Sullivan, McClellan, Brust, Kristoff & Kaufman, Weir, Wells, and Wells now and again.
    Still needing to give Farland, Brooks, and Weeks a try.

    Pens, specifically those of the fountain variety. I don't write longhand nearly enough to justify the amount of pens I have. It's sad, really.

    Writing, when I can get around to it. There's a reason I refer to myself as "a writer, theoretically". Mostly I write fantasy, with plans to branch out into science fiction. Someday.

    Music. By and large I don't care about genre, but my favorites are rock, electronic, and classical. My favorite bands are Collective Soul, Coldplay, and Imagine Dragons. Favorite electronic music person, Kygo. Favorite composer is Dvořák followed by the Haydns.

    Astronomy.

    And, above all, ignoring all of the above in favor of vegging out in front of the TV! (The West Wing is the best, y'all.)

  1. Huh. That's over 24 hours with no new notifications. Slow day I guess.

  2. I'm sorry, did you say you were an amateur? This is easily something I could imagine in a gallery.
  3. I would have seen Season 9 if Amazon offered a season pass. Given I don't particularly want to pay $50, even for the pony show, I too am waiting for Netflix.
  4. HOW AM I JUST SEEING THIS NOW?! Dang that's pretty. Just slightly too small to work as a wallpaper, unfortunately. :/
  5. Well, those are amazing. It's good to have you back! I can tell you've improved quite a bit (not that you were bad before or anything ) and I'm looking forward to seeing what else you create!
  6. Looking at the old Shard on the Wayback Machine is so trippy. Man, I remember when the shard looked like that. Good times.

      Dang... brings back memories. I caught myself on the front page of the forums January 2016! My old avatar! The old layout! Good times indeed...

      Wayback Machine? I'm curious...

  7. My favorite band, Collective Soul, just released their new album on Friday! It's called Blood, and it is seriously amazing. It turned out to be available a little past ten on Thursday night, actually (thank you timezones!), and I stayed up far too late listening to it over and over again when I should have been asleep because I had to get up early the next morning. Anyways, allow me to share some of my favorite songs from the album: Right as Rain (the best one) A Good Place to Start (He's not being literal, I promise) Observation of Thoughts (He... is being literal?) Big Sky (also the best one)
  8. I think I wanna try posting more here. We'll see how that goes.

  9. Oooh, I'm gonna have a lot of fun with this one.
  10. Dang, those are awesome! I need those on my wall ASAP.
  11. Well, isn't this interesting? I'm listening to Collective Soul! My favorite brand is coming out with a new album in June, and they've released two singles so far: Right as Rain and Good Place to Start! I'm looking forward to this album very much.
  12. Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman, the same people who wrote the seriously excellent Illuminae Files. I picked it up on Friday and finished it last night, and holy cake it was good! The downside is that it was published literally less than a week ago, and now I have to wait.
  13. Bringing this back to say if Belgian, then waffle. If not, then pancake. I also refer y'all to this bit of a CGP Grey video.
  14. Have I ever mentioned before that my aunt has a stuffed plague germ in her office?
