While making my list of 100 Must-Read books I discovered that I could easily fill it with books from various series/worlds/whatnot that I want to read all of. Listed as follows:

Out of all the costumes I want to do for various fandoms, the ones I am absolutely in love with the idea of doing are Jeska and Phage the Untouchable from the Magic: the Gathering trading card game. The cool thing about the characters is that in the storyline Jeska is killed and resurrect by the Cabal as Phage. So, what I’d really love to do would be to cosplay Jeska one day at a con like Origins or GenCon and Phage the next day.
Another geeky thing. I love to read comics of almost any kind. I guess comics, like books, are just another way to immerse yourself in another world for a while and I always love being able to do that.
What can I say? I’m a geek. I love roleplaying games. I recently got home from GenCon Indy, which has to be the largest gamer geek convention, and I am in such an RP mood it’s ridiculous. I GM a campaign for Serenity and I’m preparing characters for campaigns for Vampire: The Masquerade (we enjoy old system) and the World of Warcraft RPG. Even thinking about roleplay in the simplest of manners makes me happy.
Thanks to NaNo I finished two novel rough drafts by the time I was twenty years old, and I’m on my way to finishing the third.
I really like the studying, despite some of it’s downsides. I’ve got a notebook full of notes from my classes this quarter and I’ve actually taken to re-typing them to commit them to memory. Never thought I’d be all about studying like this, but it’s cool. :)
Tim, Tyler, Clay, and Jonlyn are easily the best friends I’ve ever had. I can completely be myself around them with no worries as to them not accepting me. I’ve never been happier with friends.
I have so many plans for tattoos that I want, and it’s been nearly two years since I got my first one. Next I want to get the complimenting tattoo to it on the right side of my ribcage.
It seems to me like a lot of writers limit themselves by writing only in one particular genre. I hate any thought of self-limitation, so I’d like to try exploring different genres. I mostly write in the fantasy vein, so I’ve decided to pick six other genres of fiction to try and expand upon, though a couple might be considered more of sub-genres than anything else.
1.) Science Fiction – Cyberpunk
2.) Science Fiction – Steampunk
5.) “Teen Fiction”
Alas, we were late getting to Columbus yesterday. I missed the 101 panel. Because I missed the basics I’m pretty sure it won’t do me any good to go the the more advanced workshop on Sunday. I consider this a setback unless I manage to find a class locally since I asked the group running the panel and they said they won’t be at GenCon.
Maybe someone will run a workshop at the Ohio State RenFaire.
Origins always has two panels on leatherworking that I think are run by the folks at Journeyman Leather. I didn’t attend either last year, as I didn’t know they were having them and wasn’t sure what leatherworking would turn out, but I already know the dates, times, and costs for this year so I’m definitely in!

I’ve been completely fascinated with Medieval times for as long as I can remember. I could blame it all on Arthurian tales and romanticized stories put out by the media, but I’ve found that even the gruesome tales that make the romance seem like far gone fairytales peak my interest. So, I’d like to find a course-
or even several courses-to take that could help me expand my knowledge of the subject.
