So I figure Fridays will become my more personal post day. Maybe that's sharing a bit of writing I really like, maybe it'll be something else. Today I need somewhere to rant, because stupid things are happening to friends of mine and I have very little patience for it. SO HANG IN THERE WITH ME. … Continue reading Personal Post Time: Brain Fights
So I took to Twitter the other day and asked all you lovely luminaries out there what you were interested in hearing me talk about here on the blog. My dear friend Sky said "strange and mysterious that you've seen happen." For a long time, I sat staring at my screen, wondering what strange and … Continue reading Strange and Mysterious Happenings
I'm generally not a fan of that phrase--"new year, new me"--because to me, it claims that something about the "old" you was bad. There's nothing wrong with the "me" I was back in 2015; I just know that I could be better. So rather than being a "new me," I'm hoping to just be a "better … Continue reading New Year, New Me?
So NaNoWriMo is over, and our TGIO party is tomorrow. It's always a bit of a bittersweet feeling, coming to the end of November. This was a more difficult one than usual, as I mentioned at the beginning of the month. (Just before? I can't remember anymore.) As usual, I always think that knowing the … Continue reading NaNoWriMo Recap and Future Plans
Hey look! A blog post that isn't a book review! I know, it's amazing, isn't it? It's been a very interesting journey lately in the life of Rion. As you may have seen, I haven't exactly been living up to what I'd wanted to. I haven't finished the prompts I promised for my September call. … Continue reading Looking Toward the Future
It's no secret that I'm a fan of YouTube gaming, and follow with great joy the likes of JackSepticEye, PewDiePie, and Markiplier. I enjoy their work, and will follow them outside of gaming as well, into comedy sketches--musical numbers--whatever. I love watching creative people enjoy themselves, and these people shine. Two days ago or so … Continue reading In Light of Loss
Please be aware right now: This post is in regards to September 11th, 2001. I am not an expert in anything except my own opinion. At no point am I intending to offend anyone, or diminish the tragedy that happened. I'm just trying to understand my own position, and perhaps those around me. I'm going … Continue reading How I Failed to #NeverForget
Remember when I blogged consistently, with interesting and new content, and put it up at the same time every day? Yeah, me neither. In any event, you'll (hopefully) get your proper update tomorrow when I don't get up an hour before my blog post I haven't written is scheduled to go live. For now, let's give … Continue reading Get to Know Me
Hey guys! Not a book review this week, since I haven't had a chance to write it yet (and I'll be doing a video talk about it as well, and I haven't recorded that EITHER) but just a quick thing to let you know that hey, I'm on YouTube! BookTube is a great community in … Continue reading YouTube!
I am a firm believer that there are too many sequels out there in the world. Every movie I've seen lately has had just enough left open at the end that everyone in the audience can say, "Whoop, well there's Movie 2 for you." And there is inevitably a Movie 2, and probably Movie 3, … Continue reading Attack of the Sequel
