Bucket doesn't need a Nintendog--she
has her own.
What can I say? This
has been a dream and ambition of mine ever since the days RPGamer first
started. Ah, those were the
days; I was fifteen and going “uwaah!” at the demo for Final Fantasy 7,
renting Secret of Mana and the two SNES Final Fantasies from the video store
and hoping that my saved games hadn't been erased by an inconsiderate prior
customer. (They almost always were.)
One of my journalism teachers at St. Michael’s
College told my class about the four stages of technology adoption.
I forget exactly what those stages were (I’m sorry, Prof. Hyde!)
but I fall somewhere at the end when everyone else's interest has
most advanced system is probably a tie between my PlayStation and my Game
Boy Advance SP. I know I’ll
probably never catch up to those who own every system and have played every
RPG, and I know I have a lot of catching up to do.
Heck, I may be destined to always be a little behind. But I’ll do my best with what I’ve got.
I’m currently “self employed and between
opportunities” which is a cute way of saying I’m out of work and on
unemployment. Getting this
opportunity is really taking the sting out of what would otherwise be a
miserable summer spent in constant pursuit of Waldo (the name I give to That
Perfect Job.) In my spare time
I’ve been playing MapleStory, a 2D MMORPG (my character is Ribby and I
play on the Bera servers.)
Aside from RPGamer I’m putting my skills to work at a
webmanga, Miryokuteki Monogatari ~ The Charming Files, which is somewhat of
a fulfillment of my life’s dream. It
is a cliché ridden Mary Sue type of story with the requisite amounts of
comedy, mystery and obligatory RPG, anime and Homestar Runner references.
I don’t draw as well as I write.
In case you were wondering, yes, I was the 2nd
place winner in Anime Trivial Pursuit at Anime Boston 2005, and no, I am not
the Bucketmouse of Newgrounds.com.
