Yesterday I made the decision to shutdown my World of Warcraft webcomic, Surviving Azeroth. This comes just a few weeks after its relaunch – a move I wasn’t completely sure I wanted to make in the first place. I’ll be … Continue reading →
“Pandas? You’ve got to be kidding me.” I went into this expansion expecting it to be terrible. I disliked it so much that I quit three months in. For as beautiful as I thought Pandaria to be, I felt like … Continue reading →
Ahoy! A while back I posted a blog entry discussing a decision I made regarding my daughter. It was received well among most, for what I know. I lost a few followers and/or readers, I’m sure. A week or so … Continue reading →
I wasn’t going to talk about this. I’ve kept to myself and avoided the topic because I was having trouble processing what happened. However, there’s somethings I want to say concerning the death of Robin Williams. I found out while … Continue reading →
It may be the Arizona heat seeping into my brain and driving me to a maddening (and productive) state, but I’ve tasked myself with not only delivering Chapter Two of Surviving Azeroth, but launching three brand new projects. — Zuulcraft … Continue reading →
It was around this time last year that I was debating on getting back into review writing. I was approached by someone on Twitter who was looking for a games writer on their website. I entertained the idea enough to … Continue reading →
You’re entitled to your feelings. You’re entitled to voice those feelings. You’re entitled to your choice of action (unsubbing) because of those feelings. I’m entitled to not wanting to surround myself with your immature reaction and negativity.

“You are human and mortal; we are the sum of our weak moments and our strong.”
― Mercedes Lackey
Weakness. We all have it. It’s there, lurking in a shadow. Waiting for that opportune moment. “Do I do this, or do I fall?” It’s not a fault. It’s one of the many traits of being human. Without it, we’re just not.
Concerning weakness and strength, you can not have one without the other. Sometimes weakness is inevitable. Sometimes it’s necessary. Sometimes bending until you break isn’t weakness at all, but a measure of the person you are and the things you’ll do to find peace.
Today I just want to write. I need to write. There is so much in me that I need to get out.
I’m no stranger to change. I’ve grown accustomed to it. My life has been ruled by big change for a very long time. It’s a never-ending cycle prompted by decisions others have made for me or decisions I felt like I had no other choice but to make. For so very long now I’ve been living in someone else’s life. I’ve been extra weight. A trophy. An escape. A filler. I’ve been everything but me.
Last year when I wrote this, I was so lost. I went into it this new change carrying the weight of my past and all of the demons I was living with. I went into it with a hopeful, but false perspective.
