I’m Back

You missed me, didn’t you?

I can’t believe how fast my Christmas break has been going. Now I have to go back to school in three days. Here, I was looking forward to all of the free time I would have, but it just flew by, leaving me in the dust of too many projects that I never worked on.

I did a little bit of writing, but not as much as I would have liked. I got several books for Christmas that I was so engulfed in reading that I barely had time to even think about Black Ice. I did write some, and I did some mental planning and pounding out of details, as I so often do, so therefore I feel as if my time wasn’t completely wasted. It was nice, however, just to relax and not worry about schoolwork, essays and exams. I haven’t been able to just laze around in a long time, so being able to afford that luxury was nice. I burned through a couple of novels in the past week, along with a sizeable stack of comic books that has been collecting on my desk since November. Besides a couple hours one day in November, I also hadn’t touched my XBOX 360 since the first week of October, so I delved into a couple of old favourites as well as the new games I got for Christmas. That was nice, too. When I’m tired and my eyes just can’t seem to be able to focus on a computer screen and write or on the pages of a book and read, I find video games can be a great way to spend some time. I’ve been having a great time these last two weeks, and I have finally decided upon a New Year’s Resolution: finish Black Ice.

So, how was everyone’s Christmas? Mine was really nice. Simple, but nice. All three of my siblings live out of town, so it was nice to have them home for Christmas. I hadn’t seen my sister in at least four months, so it was good to spend some time with her. She’s a gamer like me – even got a PS3 for Christmas, because I guess having just an XBOX 360 wasn’t good enough for her. So, it was nice have good food and be with good company, even for only a few days.

I was very fortunate this year with what I got for Christmas. A couple calendars, a couple books, a three-volume Star Wars Encyclopaedia, some video games, a new headset for my XBOX, a gift card and some money from my grandma. Oh, yeah, and a REALLY cool USB stick. I asked my parents for just a simple, plain USB stick so that I could back-up some of my writing more easily because doing it over e-mail and such just took too long. My parents are awesome because this is what they found me:

    Superman flash drive = awesome!

    • Thanks, and see, I’m so technologically impaired that I couldn’t even remember they were called flash drives! I prefer USB stick. It’s very simple haha 🙂 Thanks for reading, as always!

  2. thanks for the ping!

  3. I had a great Christmas as well and did almost no writing. My daughter and her husband gave me a gift card for Amazon. I promptly went online and bought a new paperwhite Kindle. It was delivered yesterday and I have to say, I love it. Although it’s really nice it isn’t nearly as cool as the Superman flash drive. That was a very thoughtful gift.

    • I thought so, too. I’m just wondering if they stumbled across it looking for a flash drive…or if they were on a specific mission to find out if a Superman flash drive existed. Either way, it doesn’t take away from its awesomeness. I’m glad you had a good Christmas, I’ve always wanted to try out a kindle, but in Canada we’re limited to which models we can get. I’m pretty sure we can only get the basic kindle reader, not any of the other versions. I still don’t know where I can look into, though. Amazon.com doesn’t ship to Canada, and amazon.ca doesn’t have any listed. Oh well… Happy New Year to you and your family! 🙂

  4. Welcome back Will,
    I actually stalked your blog site yesterday – I was worried about you. I love your Superman flashdrive! How awesome is that!
    I didn’t do any writing over the holidays either; but my plans for the new year will include finishing my story that has been eight years in the writing.
    Oh, and I want to have some really great articles on my blog this year too.
    Have a really Happy New Year!!

    • Thank you. I definitely look forward to reading those great articles you have planned.Whatever they are, I’m sure that I’ll very much enjoy them. Happy New Year to you, too! 🙂
