Well, my friends, it looks as though the northern hemisphere has survived another chilled out winter. It is now the time for everything to thaw out and overwhelm our lawns with the cheerful greens that will soon be cursed when it's 100 degrees out and you are the one stuck having to take care of it. :P Yes, spring has come. Step out in the light, and try not to hiss and burn with the UV rays that will be striking our ever more exposed skin as we dress lighter for the weather.
April. The month of showers. When the snow is officially supposed to be reduced to rain, and the temperature is about as mild as you can hope for. It is also the month of my birthday (April 14, mark it on your calenders if you dare...). The 11th, I get to celebrate another anniversary of sorts, the day from which I had risen to leadership of my one and only Monster Hunter Union. It will be quite the milestone for me, and will be a time where I can look back and see how I have impacted the place. Looking forward to it!
Lets see, what else... I fear the RROD no more, as I now have a backup console, bought off a neighbor, basically new, for a meager $120, including another copy of Halo 3, CoD: WAW, and an extra controller. Wootness.
As some of you may or may not have noticed, my activity seems to have dwindled. I guess at this moment, I can let you in that in fact, I have been logging in time quite regularly on gamespot. I have read your blogs, I have been watching out in my unions. I've just sort of slipped into a lurking mode, opting out of saying anything. Antisocial mebe... Trying hard to remedy that, this being my record to go by.
Finally, a big one that is fast approaching. Well, I guess I've never really gotten into my personal life too much on here, but I'd like to make it known to any reading, that I have enlisted in the Air Force several months back, and my shipping date for Basic Training is May 19. This is really the last month in a big chapter of my life. If I make it through without any sort of complication, I am on my own after this point. I will no longer be living amongst my family. It is time for me to leave, and become a functioning member of society.
What this means to you, is that I will be completely unavailible for a minimum of 8 weeks during the training, and possibly more depending on what happens during the following tech school. To those of you involved in the Monster Hunter Union, this means I will be passing over leadership temporarily to my co-lead, Rasengan_X, until I have a chance to return. This will happen probably within the week I actually have to go. Beyond that, I should be around once more, but with a steady paycheck and a new chapter to write out for myself. Wish me luck, my friends...
