I decided to check out this book as I’m currently writing a story which features a minor, animal-like god. Perhaps I can gain a little nudge at some inspiration for it. I may review this anthology differently this time, however. This is the largest collection I’ve read so far (23 stories) and I’ve been itching to read this one for quite some time now.

With how large this is, I’ve decided to write short reviews of each of the stories as I read them. These won’t be posted in my review on Goodreads, but I feel like I wouldn’t do this anthology justice if I only did an overall review. Again, this is a decently-sized collection that features a lot of different furry authors and has an interesting theme (see title).

Read on for the review of the first story in this collection! Continue reading

Midwest Furfest 2016

To start with, this won’t be a play-by-play journal of all that I did at MFF. A lot of this will share what I felt during the con as it progressed and some highlights from the weekend. Of course, at the end, I will post a photo gallery of the pictures I took and what I got. Continue reading

2017 May Be a Good Year for Me

Yes, you’ve read that right. Yes, it’s not December yet. Yes, I’m calling it early. After last weekend (as of writing this) I realized a new chapter in my life is about to begin, and it’s a big change that’s overall positive. Continue reading

Nov. 7, 2016

It seems to have been a while since I wrote a general life update; the earliest I could find was back in August. Yes, it’s been over a month, but quite a lot can happen in that time. Well, for me, only a couple things, though both big changes. Continue reading

Koa of the Drowned Kingdom by Ryan Campbell

I may start sharing my book reviews on here. I don’t read much, but I try to make sure I review every book I’ve read, if only for the author’s sake. Just to let you know, I tend to read a lot of anthropomorphic fiction, which is a very niche market.

And now, on to the review. Continue reading

The One Thing Christians Should Stop Saying

I don’t mind sharing my faith on this blog, nor anything that prompts internal discussion among fellow siblings in Christ. I may have read something like this before on the topic of what it means to “be blessed,” but it’s interesting none the less.

The Accidental Missionary

Slide1

I was on the phone with a good friend the other day.  After covering important topics, like disparaging each other’s mothers and retelling semi-factual tales from our college days, our conversation turned to the mundane.

“So, how’s work going?” he asked.

For those of you who don’t know, I make money by teaching leadership skills and helping people learn to get along in corporate America.  My wife says it’s all a clever disguise so I can get up in front of large groups and tell stories.

I plead the fifth.

I answered my buddy’s question with,

“Definitely feeling blessed.  Last year was the best year yet for my business.  And it looks like this year will be just as busy.”

The words rolled off my tongue without a second thought.  Like reciting the Pledge of Allegiance or placing my usual lunch order at McDonald’s.

But it was a lie.

Now…

Regarding my last blog post

I’ve been feeling better and have gotten a chance to relax a little bit at work today; I pretty much had nothing to do all day, thankfully.

I’ve talked with my mom a little bit about everything too. She says she acknowledges that me and my boyfriend are in a relationship but still doesn’t approve of it; I’m fine with this, so long as she doesn’t harass me about it. I explained to her that I’ve been stressed about how my life is right now and that I feel stuck and have no purpose. She says she understands this. Continue reading

Too much going on lately, plus a brief life story

I pretty much copy/pasted this from my journal entries from a few art sites I’m on. I just really needed to get this all out; there’s so much that’s been going on with me lately. Continue reading

It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

I haven’t had much time to share any life updates on this blog between work and being busy almost every weekend this summer. I’ve also been focusing more on writing and trying to write as often as I can; I would like to try and post more often on my story and poetry blogs and elsewhere. That’s not to say I’ll lower the quality of my writing, however; I always strive to improve in my craft with each piece I write.

Along with that, there hasn’t been much else happening in my life right now. I’m currently unable to go back to Platteville in the Fall, for multiple reasons, but I will be going back in the Spring. I only have one semester left until I graduate; after that, who knows what will happen next. For the time being, I’ll still be working at Milton Propane through the Fall and possibly early Winter.

My boyfriend and I have been together for five months now as of Thursday. We’ve had our ups and downs, sure, but I think it’s safe to say our relationship is still going steady. We’re still trying to figure things out, both as individuals and as a couple; there are still a few kinks (not those kind!) we’re working out too, but all of that will come in time and effort. Regardless, we both still love each other very much and would like to live together some day.

I will also being going to a couple furry conventions in the near future: Furry Migration in Minneapolis, MN, and Midwest FurFest in Rosemont, IL. Of course, I will going with my boyfriend, but a couple of our other friends will be joining us as well; I know both of them will be a blast!

And that’s about it. I wanted to give you guys a quick update with what I’ve been up to and how I’ve been lately.

Two Months!

I can’t believe it’s been two months since me and my boyfriend, Wolfletech, have been together! I’m still thankful to have him in my life, and I hope we can keep this going onto three months!

Anyway, below is all what we did for our two-month anniversary. Continue reading
