Pluto close up

I find it funny

The way that I don't update this thing on a timely basis. I've had it for over four years now, and when I got it I used to update it CONSTANTLY and then I would still update it every now and then, but lately I don't update it nearly as much as I used to. I dunno, I find myself completely blah this year. School is more of a pain than anything else, it's depressing because I really, really like school and I want to finish it, but I've also been thinking about taking a semester off. I won't do it, of course, because most of the time people don't come back after they take a semester off, and I know that I would be one of those people. Plus, taking a semester off would mean that I would essentially be forced to spend the time at home with the harpy and the dial up. These things aren't worth it. Add that to the fact that this is the year where I've had the best neighbors around me and roommates ever and I really don't want to mess that up. I can see myself missing Aidan a lot when he goes back to South Dakota after the school year ends. He's my gaming buddy, I've never had a gaming buddy before.

I got myself like seven comics over the week, which is a lot for me these days, but back in the day when I was spending forty dollars a week on comics, yes, I said a week, seven comics was like an unheard of small week. Now, it's probably the biggest week I've had in a long time. The thing that sucks about Bat Comics, the storre here, is that they don't get that many shelf copies of things, and I can't get on the list of people who get things ordered for them anymore since I didn't pay for one week, one week out of like 3 years and I got taken off, it wasn't even a big week. But those are the rules, and I'm okay with that. Comics are stupid now anyways. Before, they were the shiant, and I would look forward to them all the time... but these days I've just found myself completely and utterly disenchanted with them. Don't get me wrong, there are a few good books out there, like Young Avengers, Runaways, Wonder Woman, Birds of Prey, Astonishing X-Men and that's pretty much about it as far as the 'good' books go. Even JSA, which was like my favorite title for a few years is just starting to be crappy. Supergirl shows promise, and I hope it doesn't let me down. Plus, with Infinite Crisis coming up soon I'm really looking forward to that. I hope a bunch of people die, just random people I don't like, and even a few who I once did. Superboy must die. The imposter must be eliminated. I wouldn't mind Kal dying either, but they wouldn't be able to do that, or kill off Diana. It starts next month, about fucking time. All this lead in shit has been COMPLETELY pointless.

It's funny, because four years ago I swore on everything that was holy that I wanted to write comics for a living. I wanted to write them so badly, but now I don't even have the smallest urge to do that anymore, because the state of the books has just gotten so bad that I find it impossible to care about them. Depressing, I know, but what can you do?
