Rough Start for 2013

As the title says, it wasn’t easy starting off the new year. This pretty much started days before last year’s Christmas when I suffered through my first car accident. Had to take care of paying the repairs when my dad removed the full coverage of my car insurance to put it for his new Jeep without telling me. I covered my part on the repairs but that drained my funds. However, I’ll be making a good recovery once I get my tax refund. But there is even more good news, I finally got a new phone: goodbye 3G MyTouch, hello 4G Samsung Galaxy S III. Not only that, I finally got the courage to purchase my first computer and this is a monster: Dell XPs 8300 with 2TB Hard Drive, 16GB ram, Third Generation¬† Intel Core i7 processor, AMD Radeon video card, and more. Remind you that I got these new gadgets before the accident happened. Now I’m more active online with the new phone and computer so I decided to start my own youtube channel. All I need now is a desktop microphone.

At least a couple of good things happened to me during January. First of, I finally took my motorcycle course and passed it. Honestly, I was nervous thinking about riding actual street motorcycles as part of the course but in fact they were actually fun. Maybe in a few years I might get my own bike one day. For now, I have to stick to this scooter my dad bought to help me get to work once I pick my motorcycle endorsement. Look out world, I’m now a motorcyclist. Last but not least, I went to Animate Miami. Its a local Anime convention in Miami run by the same people behind Florida Supercon. It had 10 voice actors like the entire English voice cast for High School of the Dead but the big kicker that it featured four My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. And yes, I’m a brony and I’m proud of it. In fact, Animate Miami was the first I ever gone to as a brony. Met these awesome voice actors from the show: Andrea Libman (Voice of Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy), Nicole Oliver (Voice of Princess Celestia and Cherilee), Peter New (Voice of Big Macintosh), and Michelle Creber (Voice of Applebloom plus singing voices for her and Sweetie Belle’s).¬† And its not just the VA’s, I met the crew from Everfree Network even Final Draft, brony artist Toxic Mario from DA, the funny man behind the PONY. MOV series HotDiggedyDemon. Seriously, this con has given one of the most unique experiences I ever had.

Well, that’s it. I got more stuff planned up and will try to get more artwork up in my blog. Next con I’m going will be Orlando Megacon. It will be great to see Fred Perry, Dragen, Maverikate, and George again. But the most I’m looking forward to is meeting Tara Strong, John DeLancie, John DiMaggio, and once again Vic Mignogna. But again, thank you for all the support. Let’s hope we have great year.
