Marching Past 2010 and onto 2011!

01 January 2011

As of writing this entry, 2010 is officially behind us and it is now 2011. So what does that mean for me, this blog, and the future? Most definitely I plan to write more in AstralCandy than I have during 2010. 2010 was a weird year since I had taken a hiatus from XI, dropped Aion, and was kinda playing WoW but not hardcore. In fact, it was mostly a year of waiting for XIV, working on ffxivblog.com, leaving ffxivblog.com, and then working on launching zantetsuken.net.

Things are different now and I hope to be much more settled in both working on my joint pet project, XI and XIV, trying out other games, watching more anime this year (gasp!), and -of course- blogging more here. Most likely you will see a cross posting of things from zantetsuken.net on here, as well as a recap of other things I have played, and maybe even things I’ve watched or listened as well. It is pretty much a return of many things. I know I have been feeling lost lately, and in the days leading up to the end of 2010 I realized that a big part of what I’ve been missing is doing the things I love to do: read, write, and be the wannabe geek I love to be.

It also means changes to possibly the domain and most definitely its layout. No, it won’t be like what I have set for zantetsuken.net, but most definitely something new and refreshing. I need that. 2010 was such a shitty year and I really want it placed far behind me as possible. Granted there were many things that have happened during the year that made me stronger in some aspects, but it is also a year filled with memories that I would rather leave behind and pretend never happened. So… onto 2011! I am hoping it will be better and am already making plans on what needs to be changed and how I will go about making such changes. ^-^v

Another set of changes for this blog?

30 September 2010

At first this blog was hosted on Livejournal, then briefly on Vox, then became doink! on my own domain. The very recently I found I didn’t like some of the other definitions of doink, moved to AstralCandy.com, and thought that would be that. AstralCandy was previously my short lived personal blog, but that had gone due to my neglect. However, Orophen and I are now in the process of creating a new joint project. We haven’t done this for a few years now and I’m hoping beyond hope he will take it seriously or that it will be some what successful.

So then comes the problem of… what am I going to do with this site? I’ve considered actually archiving old entries and restarting my character blog fresh since the game is still very new. I’ve already started to think about what I would want to write and how, and what Calaera Smith’s background would be like. Let’s hope it works out~
