The Professional Gamer - March 14, 2016

Hello friends! This weekend I've been at StarFest Denver (in general, ComicFest in particular).  I've spent most of my free time this week watching anime.  With a fair amount of time dedicated to running this week,  and trying to get ready for the convention this weekend, the anime was about all that I had time for.  Let's talk about the couple of shows that I've been watching.

In order to make up for last week's flurry of geeky activity, I had a week full of other business to do.  For one thing, Tuesday night was occupied with attending the Colorado Caucuses and exercising my ability to direct the future leadership of our country.  Then, I met up with my parents for dinner on Wednesday, and spent Thursday trying to learn how to design rockfall protection barriers.  I've watched a few more episodes of Snow White with the Red Hair, and am really excited as I get closer to conclusion of this series.  

So, that's really ended up being most of my week.  Hopefully, I can find a little bit more time next week.

I've had a lot of fun this week and managed to spend some time doing all three of the activities that I used to assume I would do every week: reading, watching, and playing.  Therefore, my article this week will be a bit longer than it have been for the past few weeks.  And, as long as you enjoy my ramblings, that's good news for you.  Read on to find out what I've been up to!

Hi everyone! I've just got a short post this week.  I've got a major post on Colorado Anime Fest in the works, look for it on Wednesday.  In other news, I borrowed Heir to the Empire from the library.  After trying to read Shadows of the Empire, this was such a breath of fresh air.  I mean, maybe its not classical literature, but the caliber of writing is phenomenally higher.  I've also watched several more episodes of Snow White with the Red Hair and am rapidly approaching the first season finale.

I hope everyone had a great week, and I'll see you here again next time!

Hello, readers!  I’ve been at the inaugural Colorado Anime Fest.  I’ll have a full article about my experience here a little later this week.  Other than that, I’ve spent my time this week watching Snow White with the Red Hair, and flying around some more with my space truck.  Also, since we are starting to get close to spring, I’ve started reading more gardening books, and have started some herbs to keep in pots in my house. 

Snow White with the Red Hair is very enjoyable.  I like seeing that the two lead characters, who maybe have some romantic interest in each other, also have plans and goals that do not simply revolve around the relationship.  Without relying on the typical "love conquers all" trope, the creators are much more free to develop the characters as individuals.

My adventures in space trucking in Elite: Dangerous continue apace.  I've been a bit more busy this week, especially with helping Crystal get ready for Colorado Anime Fest this weekend.  So, I haven't moved much further towards my goals of a new ship, but my rare trading scheme still seems to be working well as a means of earning the needed capital.

Look for a full article from me about Colorado Anime Fest to come out later this week.  I took a few pictures and had a lot of fun at the cultural track programs.  I hope to see you all here again later this week.  Game on!
