Living the Good Life, Episode 25 (March 17, 2017 ): Too much snow!

Pretty nice week, but didn’t really do anything. We had some big snowstorms in my area, so I spent much of my days cleaning up snow from the driveway whenever I wanted to go out to eat, and I couldn’t go anywhere on Tuesday cause everything was closed. Thankfully the weather’s clearing up 😀 WATCHAN: […]

Living the Good Life, Episode 24 (March 10, 2017 ): Gravity and Tyranny!

Yet another nice week! Feels good man 8) WATCHAN: Gravity Rush: Overture. This was a very small OVA (2 parts totaling about 20 minutes) released before Gravity Rush 2. I said last week I wasn’t sure how Kat (the protagonist of Gravity Rush and Gravity Rush 2) ended up in the new area she’s in […]

Living the Good Life, Episode 23 (March 3, 2017 ): BERSERK!

Ah, now THIS was a nice week 😀 WATCHAN: Not much, really.

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 35 (Season 2 second-to-last-episode): At long last, victory!

Hoooooo boy. It took a while, longer than I hoped, but it’s finally happened. On Monday, February 13, 2017, I handed in the second draft of my dissertation. My feelings about it? Honestly, I’m kinda apathetic…as surprising as it may seem, I don’t feel as accomplished as I did when I turned in my first […]

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 34 (Season 2): Victory approaches!

Another short entry for you, today, my friends, but a good one: I was waiting for a while for a response from my profs, but my advisor just got back to me! He said what I had sounded good, so I should send it over. I’m gonna go over my draft quickly and make sure […]
