Red face Hey, how's everyone doing?

I've not posted here in quite a while, I sense activity on the forum's decreased too.

I thought I'd update you all with what's going on in my life, although really not much has happened. The biggest thing is I left my art course, took half the qualification instead, I couldn't be in that class for yet another year, fell out with everyone and even before that the course I felt really wasn't right for me. Initially I wanted to find a political course, but I opted to do film & TV instead. I'm not that great, I have very little experience with film & TV, but that's what education's for I suppose, maybe I should have done politics instead but oh well, what's done is done. If nothing else it's an improvement over art, plus as this is a two year course I've basically brought myself another year before I need to think about what I'm doing after education and well...with my life in general.

Other than that I'll be honest, practically nothing's happened. I mentioned above I fell out with everyone in my class, meanwhile the best friends I had following that have either gone to uni, moved away or were already long distance. I talk to a few people in my new class, they seem ok, I don't really go out socially as much as I used to though. With that in consideration my personal life's not particularly interesting.

These days I'm not as in with geekdom as days gone by, I think I've mentioned this on here before but I've stopped picking up comicbooks quite a while back now, I've not seen a few of the latest comicbook movies. I am however a regular watcher of the DC CW shows (no spoilers, we're behind you yanks in the UK ), Arrow seems to have picked up from the last two seasons. I listen to a lot of music, gotten into quite a few new musicians now. And then there's my fashion I'm still keen on, I keep an Instagram as almost a fashion journal.

Yeah that sums up my life right now really, not too interesting but I thought I'd update you guys. Hope you're all doing well, and if I don't get back to you lot soon then Merry Christmas and happy new year!

Welcome back.

I only read trades now. Monthly comics just got way to hard to keep up with, plus I like having six or so issues to read at once rather than waiting on monthlies. The only thing I'm still keep up with monthly is Star Wars.

I just recently came back to the board myself after a bit of a hiatus.

Yep, this is basically a Christmas letter

Any recommendations? I'm a bit behind with what's good and what isn't lately.

Cheers.

Yeah I get you, plus it's gotta be a lot cheaper with trades too, not to mention easier to store.

Well, I was thinking more in general (as in pick up where you left off), but in terms of Green Lantern, the current Hal Jordan book is better than Green Lanterns.

In trades, I'd say check out Saga and Klaus.

Welcome back Deadpool. Glad to see you're doing well. It seems like it's been forever since you last posted here.

Oh most definitely, it's just a shame we have to wait another series yet. I admit I've preferred series' 8 and 9 to his previous series, but I'm still looking forward to his departure, the Christmas episode's not looking too hopeful this year. I don't want Capaldi to go, but by the end of a third series with him who knows how I'll feel.

Cheers. It has been a while to be honest, not really had much cause to come here as often as I used to.

Ok not going to bother making a third catch-up thread, I'll just bump this one.

Been another long while since I was here but I accidentally clicked on the link here, thought I may as well login and see what's going on, saw I actually had a notification and thought sod it I'll take a look around, post a bit and catch up yet again.

Finished college (in the UK it's kinda a weird in-between hybrid of high-school and free university, whilst in the States what you call college is university to us) in summer 2018 and since then I've basically been trying to find myself and figure out what I'm doing with myself. I've basically ended up becoming a recluse ngl, I'm learning to drive at the moment so hopefully I'll be less restricted in what I can do once I pass that, although I imagine it'll be many many months off, especially given my instructor keeps having to cancel due to illnesses or weather conditions. Been procrastinating in trying to find work but I'm going to try forcing myself to start ramping up the search and finally get out of the house to get some income coming in.

Mostly been online on Discord etc. for most of my days lately, been catching up with the Marvel Netflix shows lately too, so I'm living a pretty tame life right now. I've gotten more into collecting vintage comics lately, including golden age and some key issues, need to try and bulk up my actual reading library though. Keep up with the news kinda too, still interested in politics for example. I did apply to fill a vacancy in the town council but I ended up imploding and probably making a fool out of myself, but the workload there looked a lot more daunting than I anticipated anyway so I'm glad I didn't get it, I'm not really the best with cutesy local town community stuff anyway, far too twee for me, more interested in national politics, maybe when I'm 90 I'll run for Prime Minister seeing the trend for politicians at the moment is getting older and older.

So yeah that's my life right now, basically become a couch potato (bed potato?), disgraceful I'll be honest but hopefully the next time I post one of these updates I'll be in a better situation. Hope everyone else is doing well too!

Thought I saw a ghost! Should check out my newer fanfic thread for some of my best recent micros. I think there's still a link in my signature...

I thought about making one of these threads awhile back but I think I got a better idea.
