Well, well. Looks like I've made it through yet another round-trip around this massive fireball humans call Sun.
What can I say? Looking at my -2017 journal things haven't changed too much.
My to-do list keeps piling and growing larger and larger.
Discovered and acquired more comics. It was quite year of Internet Comics as I discovered and read multiple great ones!
In March I found out about this one with cool name, Dragon's Burn. Soon after I discovered it updates ceased to happen.
In early April I started and read through this one called TwoKinds . Ended up ordering couple of physical versions too, and shirts(the shirts took 5 months to arrive. Ha.).
Also found out about this lovely community that originally TwoKinds-designed IRC channel is.
Sadly after 7 months of good times in the chat my judgment failed and I said very inappropriate joke in that environment(suppose I got too comfortable).
So I deemed myself no longer worthy of being there and made me feel horrible for few days... If any of you guys are reading this I absolutely loved your company and hope that my brief
visit there wasn't complete waste of time for all of you.
Also necessary reminder of how bad one can feel. This happened on my birthday, such a great gift I gave to myself...
Fast-forward to late fall, when I bingeread Sabrina Online. By far longest-living webcomic out of these mentioned here.
Also the amount of stuff author Eric W Schwartz has been involved in is quite impressive.
Art, animating, webpage design and so on, since his early adult years!
Kinda funny how old his page is, many of the links related no longer work because the related pages have disappeared years ago.
Fortunately Web Archive exists.
I made some more mediocre-quality videogame content, dwelled deeper into world of Parkour(even bought new shoes first time in many years, for sole purpose of Parkour).
Also honourable mention to Sasuke(originally Japanese obstacle-course sport).
Solid parkour site: parkourpedia.com/
Surprisingly enough my library of bookmarks hasn't expanded too much.
However the amount of notepads filled with "check-later" links have. Badly. And I already have plenty of them to go through from 2017.
I made some VERY slight progress towards being in better shape physically.
But I also failed my goal of increasing flexibility badly.
Also I expanded my boardgame library by fair amount. Catan in April, Clank! in August, and Splendor + Rummikub in December.
There's just so much to experience and try - maybe if I won Lottery jackpot and slept 0 hours every night?
Anyways I think that's enough rambling for the year(har har).
Have a good one, stranger.
