Another year done, and another year to look forward to.  While the past year was a bit of a roller coaster for me (didn't go to a lot of conventions this past year, had to move, went through a breakup, and almost wound up on jury duty back in July, but I did get to go to Washington DC for my brother's wedding and got to see some of the sights back in April), it did wind up on a high note for me with Star Wars returning and the franchise redeeming itself.

I'm hoping that the coming year will be a smoother one for me and I might get to go to a few smaller conventions alongside Fanime over the course of the year.  I'm also hoping that I might find my artistic spark again at some point, especially since I managed to get a copy of Manga Studio 5 for $15 over the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend.  Also picked up a new hobby over the past couple of months, X-Wing Minis.

All in all, looking forward to the New Year and hoping that it won't have the stressful ups and downs of the previous year.  I also hope that the New Year is a good one for all of you out there as well!

Just a quick note to wish everyone out there a Merry Christmas if they celebrate it, and Happy Holidays if they celebrate something else!

This Friday the 13th has turned out to be a horrifying day in France, and the city of Paris in particular.

I don't think I need to recap, nor do I think that it's entirely possible at this point in time since there still some unknowns, such as who's responsible, the extent of the horror, and what lies down the road.  Still too much unknown and uncertain.

However, my thoughts and prayers are with the people of France and the city of Paris.  Healing will come in time, but it may be slow.  I do not doubt their strength and resolve, and I am sure that they do not stand alone in this time of loss.

I do want to say that it would serve us best to be discerning of what news continues to come out of this event.  It's still early and rumors and hearsay may do more harm than good.  Likewise, we must be absolutely certain when placing blame for the events of today, and to make sure that rage and anger are not taken out on the wrong people, even if they might belong to the same religion, ethnicity, or creed as those who have perpetrated this horror today.

Took a quick look at my DA front page after I got home from work and saw that I'm now listed as having been on here ten years.  Has it really been this long?

Originally, I came on here to showcase my artwork.  Gradually over the years, that shifted to cosplay photography and about two years ago, I stopped drawing altogether.  Unfortunately, my other output on this site also started to drop off soon after.  It's not as though I don't have output through other sites, such as my Smugmug (stormfalcon.smugmug.com) and my American Cosplay Snapshots gallery (www.acparadise.com/acs/display…).  However, I'm going to have to try to find some time to start catching up on my considerable backlog of cosplay photography on here.  Luckily, I haven't been able to hit as many events this year (NorCal Spring 2015 Cosplay Gathering and FanimeCon 2015, as well as the upcoming NorCal Summer 2015 Cosplay Gathering), so there's a little respite at least, but I still need to carve out some time, even with the diminishing amount of free time in my life (thanks to moving earlier this year and the longer commutes resulting from that).

So far I'm still sticking around despite the surprise rate hikes here (since I was on the recurring monthly plan at $5/mo, it seems to be remaining in place luckily).  Perhaps someday I'll resume posting on here before too long.   Keep your fingers crossed!
