In a way, you could say this is my follow-up post to Fur Squared 2018. All in all, I had a great time at the con and was glad to meet and hang out with a few people I haven’t seen in a while, along with meeting a few new people. To be honest, my main goal for this con was just that.
As much as I would’ve loved to have Sponsored or Super Sponsored this con, things weren’t going great for me, financially, prior to this past weekend. However, after I was hired on to permanent employment status at Emmi Roth (a cheese factory I work at here in town), I gained a better pay rate, benefits, and paid time off; so, in the end, things worked out for me enough that I could at least attend. I believe this makes my second year where I had to register at the door, the first year being…well my very first Fur Squared and furry con back in 2015. Otherwise, I would’ve pre-registered as a Sponsor or Super Sponsor. I feel I’ve been attending this con enough times where I know it’ll be a good con each year, and I want to help it grow.

Hey guys, I’ve been gone a while, haven’t I? That shouldn’t be new, honestly; I’ve been quite busy and have had a lot on my mind for the past month or so.
One culprit would definitely have to be college. Yep, finally started that up again a couple weeks ago. Already I feel busy with assignments, many of which are long-term, research projects, which would be understandable at this point in my college career. I currently have two research projects I need to think of a topic/get on the ball with doing research ASAP, plus I have a lot of reading to do for two other classes. Not to mention, there’s exams coming up soon and I need to start getting prepared for those. It’s just been so hard getting back into that mindset after being gone for the summer, fall, and beginning of winter. Continue reading

Another year of Fur Squared; another year of being a furry. A lot has happened regarding me and my interactions with the fandom, and I consider this con my “anniversary” (if I end up going to it every year). This was the third year for Fur2 and my second year attending. For such a fairly new con, they’ve grown tremendously: ~500 attendees last year, and 791 attendees this year! It’s only a matter of time before they reach the 1,000 mark. The con also supports a local charity called the Humane Animal Welfare Society (HAWS); they raised up to $9,001 this year for HAWS. I can honestly see this con quickly becoming one of the larger ones like MFF and AC. Continue reading
Valentine’s Day…I don’t understand it. I mean, sure it’s a day to celebrate love, but it is always geared toward couples. Also, it seems like, for many guys, it’s the only day they’ll treat their woman properly. Single people always seem to get pushed aside; however, on the plus side, it can be the day they confess their love for someone they’ve had eyes for. The latter isn’t the case for me, and it never was. Continue reading
It seems for the most part, I have many good traits, and those that just are what they are. However, like all people, there are some vices or bad traits that make up who I am – addictions, poor health traits, anything that could potentially damage me in the long run, etc. Based on my beliefs, this stems from original sin and that it’s in my nature as an imperfect human being. Of course, that’s why I need Christ in my life. While these negative qualities are few, they can quickly cancel out all the positive or unique qualities of myself if I’m not careful. Continue reading

Sorry that I’m late with this; there was just a lot I was trying to sort out this past weekend, and I think I’ll make this the post for the week. It’s going to be a while ’til I get back into the swing of things that is school after this past weekend.
I’ve said before that this was my first furry convention; there was a lot to take in and a lot of new experiences for me, but I had a blast regardless! To Fur Squared!
This week was pretty busy for me because I have weekend plans for once and I was trying to get as much homework done as I can beforehand. It was pretty stressful and I constantly worried that something would go wrong…and then I start forgetting about assignments because I get so caught up in other other ones. This weekend will be a fun and relaxing end for this week.
There are a couple days I omitted simply because nothing in particular happened on those days; I’ll be doing this from here on out. With that said, on to this stressful week.

This one’s a little late but like I said in my introductory post, and I think the “About” page, I’m keeping to a semi-regular posting schedule. This is mostly just to keep myself on track. With that said, onto this past week! Continue reading

Even though it was Valentine’s Day, I didn’t feel really upset about it. Sure I felt a little lonely and sad from time to time, but that was mainly due to some troubling things involving some of my friends that have been weighing on my heart lately (and no, it didn’t involve me royally screwing up).
I think…I think I may be starting to enjoy my singleness a little bit more, or at least not be extremely bothered by this fact like I have been in the past.
I’ve been quite scatterbrained earlier this week and most of last week; quite a lot has been going on college-wise, but that’s not uncommon for the beginning of the semester.
Early in the Spring semester, I have to sign up for a room in a residence hall for next year; what I want to do, either stay in my current room or move to a different one, depends on the time-frame I have to sign up. I also want to room with a friend of mine next year too; it’s always nice to have a roommate who’s just as weird and awkward as you. Luckily this process went smoothly and nothing exploded.
However, apparently trying to drop a class is not as smooth of a process. It sounds simple enough though:
- Get a class drop from from the registrar
- Fill it out with ID info and class info
- Get my adviser’s and professor’s signatures
- Pay a $15 drop fee
- Turn the form back in to the registrar
And yet I can’t get my professor’s signature because he doesn’t have good office hours, and when I tried going to his office during those hours, he wasn’t there. So, I guess I’ll have to attend class next week (it’s a 3hr. class that meets once a week @ 7pm) and awkwardly hand him the form and attempt to explain the situation.
I won’t go into any details as to why I’m dropping this class or what the class is. It involves a completely different discussion entirely.
Along with this, I’ve had a couple life things on my mind for quite some time. Those I may or may not explain later. The rest of the week
