Again if you follow my Twitter and or Facebook you would have seen the many picture of my Hobbits and of me with my better half ;). So aside from doing all my press work at the Comic Con, I made sure to spend just the same amount of time with them. This was my Hobbits first Comic Con and boy were they taken back haha. Both of them running back and forth trying to find the heroes or villains…

Both of them running back and forth trying to find the heroes or villains they want to meet. Jackson would get so pumped up about meeting one and then get SUPER nervous haha.
“Look Joker and Quinn!”
“Okay! Go ask them for a picture or say hello.”
That’s all I heard most of the day haha. We did get some really good picture of them tho and they powered through the whole Con, from beginning to end. We were all tired and our feet were killing us…. Plus we still had to drive back home haha. But It did make for some great memories and the kids in a state of wonder :). Like I wrote about in my other post called “A Small Conversation With William Shatner & Bob Camp At Wizard World“, they were able to meet William Shatner. As well as some of the artist in the area. Lilly Got to meet her Disney princesses and Wonder Woman, Jackson got to meet Darth Vader and The Doctor. Plus a number of zombies haha. The cosplayers were in the area were so nice to them and again the staff was great.
We did try and set through a few Q&A panels, but you know who that goes :). They did really well, no yelling or moving around to much. But when you don’t know the topic to well things get a little hard to set through. But over all I think they did really well and I can tell they had a lot of fun.
So this post is more on the personal side. Which I’ve been know to do from time to time on here, aside from the nerdy fandom posts.
2013 was not the best year for myself. Oh sure I had a few winning moments. But sadly that only made 10% of the events good. Where as the bad was around 90%… Lost one of the many battles over custody for my children, lost my job, car, lots of financial problems and even got arrested towards the end of the year.
Also founded out that I’m suffering from Depression and what would be the being stages of Agoraphobia. For those who don’t know what Agoraphobia is, it’s when you an anxiety disorder characterized by anxiety in situations. Like in wide-open spaces, as well as uncontrollable social situations such as the possibility of being met in shopping malls, airports etc. Also causes panic attacks in those environments. There are better definitions on Wikipedia if you care to look it up :).
So this week finished all the left over drama from 2013. Paving the way for a new beginning in 2014. A vary much needed new beginning…
After being hit with the proverbial enlightenment stick. I’ve sought out getting help from a therapist and started taking parenting classes. I’ve Also registered for college in the fall. So today was the first day of therapy and it went rather well. It was more of a getting to know each other type of meeting, haha to get a better understanding of my shenanigans.
With a new being on the horizon, I’ve started/join some new creative outlets. One being this new podcast! Yay! This is something I’ve always wanted to do. But never knew how and or participate in one. Let alone on who to talk to about such a matter haha :). That was until last week when I got a tweet from a follower about joining his podcast group! At first I was nervous, not to sure of myself(Thank you Agoraphobia). But I pushed through it and jumped on board, because I knew I wasn’t going to get another change like this for awhile. Still a little nervous about everything, but I manage to finish an episode the other night. And went rather well, had a lot of fun and laughs. Can’t wait to record new episodes :). I’ve also started making a new layout for the website as well. Things like a new logo, update the HTML5, I’ve also been playing around with c++. I’m also looking to add new writers to my site.
But all in all, things are getting better. 2014 as a “A New Hope” feeling to it. I want to keep moving forward and make myself a better person.
So in ending this post I say to 2013,”So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish.”
