Birthday Blog

May 22, 2009

Well, it’s time to give God thanks for another year of existence. If it wasn’t for him, who knows where I would be.

So, here’s what happened on my Birthday.

As I spoke about earlier this week, I was waiting for word on an opportunity, and I got an email welcoming me and offering me a position as an intern writer for Platform Nation. I have to give them a certain amount of articles a month, I shall do my best. At the time of this article, I have given them a mini-article and it’s pending approval.

I was greeted by this when I arrived at my desk the morning of my birthday.

Happy Birthday to me !!!

Happy Birthday to me !!!

I’m not even gonna lie, I thought it was very nice that one of the big bosses graced my desk with this cheesecake and card. The only downside was worrying about how much I would have to hug that boss =/

*you just missed a hidden message*

afterwards, it was then my “Fairy DogMother” gave me her office gift:

Yes, that is M&M covered Brownies !!!

Yes, that is M&M covered Brownies !!!

However, with great gifts come great responsibilities… I started getting threatening letters for my brownies from various coworkers. How Threatening ? well, after the attacks stopped, I was able to spell this out:

Yes, each of those were thrown in my direction.

Yes, each of those were thrown in my direction.

After receiving all of these, what else COULD I do? I promptly cut the brownies up and they were shared by the young ladies of the office and myself.

After work, we decided we would go to Chili’s for Dinner. It was last minute, so I sent out a few text messages and facebook status updates; I really wasn’t expecting that many people to arrive since it was such last minute, but I was grateful for anyone that would arrive.

At Chili’s a good time was had by all. Well, at least I had a good time 🙂 I even took home a memento to remember the night. I can’t tell you  or show you what it was, just know it was a great keepsake :).

Finally I want to take this time to thank EVERYONE who sent me birthday wishes on facebook, text messages, and phone calls. For everyone that didn’t… I know you were thinking of me and I appreciate the well wishes still.

Oh, and for those wondering; I got a game from Mrs. Blogmaster for my Birthday. Good news she got me  a game; Bad news is she got me a game I didn’t want. at all. It’s alright because I can return the game for the one I DO want when it comes out next week 🙂 Who knows, I might even do a Review on it.

Swaggerific Magazine

April 2, 2009

I’m here to make an announcement of sorts:

Swaggerific Magazine will be released to the general (online) public April 1oth.

This is the opportunity I was talking about; I will be the official video game writer (what a surprise) I will review games that are out and coming out soon, giving my honest opinion.

I will more than likely stick to the main stream titles for the sake of the “demographic” of the magazine. (no one really says “Swag” and “Pokemon” in the same sentence with a straight face) This also gives me the opportunity to play certain games I would normally avoid because I know better they aren’t my cup of tea.

I’ll more than likely hit up most of the sports games, fighting games… you know the games rappers play. I’ll probably use the chance to open up the eyes of gamers who feel they are too “Swag-tastically endowed” to play certain games. It shall be a learning experience for all parties involved.

The life of the magazine depends on you the consumer. The more people read/demand it the better chances there will be for more issues (possibly in print format). so tell your friends and tell them to tell friends.

Once again; Swaggerific Magazine, Online, April 1oth 2009. Check back here the day of for links.

Late Nite Post

Well, I knew I forgot something…

Remember that Opportunity I told you about? sure you do.

Well, now I can speak a little more on it. I have been given the opportunity to be one of the original writers for an up and coming magazine. Swaggerific Magazine debuts next week !!! I won’t tell you which article I wrote in the magazine, but if you know me, you’ll know.

It’s going to be available online NEXT week. I’m doing my part and getting the masses ready for my print debut. If the reception for the magazine is big enough, the 2nd issue will be available in print format. Source and XXL, watch out, We’re trying to get PAID over here
