Transition

This year will be unlike the few years I have been on the blog. Though I will be still writing, I am pushing to organize everything a little bit. Therefore some changes will happen.

The Schedule. Stuff IRL

First off, I will not be changing my blogging schedule. Yup. Once a week every week until the summer. I cannot forecast the summer because of new developments in my life. With that being said, I have been employed which is a relief. However the most I can say is financially, I am still having trouble. By trouble, I mean I need a steady income. As of now I’m out of the red, but still trying to hold on the ground I’ve gained from the past couple years of spamming my resume out.

Secondly as of late 2014, I’ve moved away from reviewing video games. That’s just because rather than posting a review, my reviews are now in video form. On my gaming channel on YouTube, I’ve decided to play the games I like and share it to the world. Along with these games, I am looking into getting new games to review and even play through its entirety. So anything directly to gaming will go straight to my YouTube channel; my thoughts, opinions and views will be here.

Community Comments!

Over the past few years, I’ve have been timidly contributing to the WordPress blogging community by commenting on other blogs. Most of the time I realized I would post a wall of words on other people’s posts. To me I like my thoughts to be thorough which usually doesn’t result in a concise comment. So as I am now in the fourth year of my blog, it’s time that instead of building walls (of words), I start posting them here. Out of my schedule, these posts should not count towards my actual blog posts. There are some amazing bloggers out there who post some amazing content to make me think and contribute to their blog. It is only fair that I show you guys how I’m showing you readers how I’m contributing back to a community who has read my grief.

What about summer?

So one of my employers require me to be away for the summer. I am not quite sure how I am going to continually forward posts since I don’t think where I’m going will have a connection or access to my laptop or home computer. If WordPress allows, I will have some posts lined up for the summer until I return. YouTube is another matter. Since I don’t think YouTube requires me to be on to publish in real-time, my channel might go on hiatus. The same can be said for my blog if I can’t find some way to post ahead of time but only publish on specific dates. From what it looks like, the hiatus will be about 2 months long. In internet time, that’s a really long time.

2015 will be a very busy year for me. For my profession life and my hobbies I’ve created over the past few years. I would like to thank you guys for joining me from the start. If you guys just joined, I hope you guys keep coming back.

Until next time, let’s make 2015 happen!

Things we could learn from Star Trek…or history making it all true?

Sometimes the politics as of lately, has been somewhat negative. Even with that one sentence in some countries, I would be shot on sight. In this day in age, I am still surprised and ashamed of that thought. With everything the last decade, you have to ask where all this is going. What is our future? What exactly will become of us as society? Scientifically, the future is unknown and infinite; all probabilities are possibilities which could theoretically be realities. However it is concerning the way things have been running, we could be heading into some of the darkest days in history. Considering how everything is turning our in recent world history.

Copyright protection, student protests, riots, revolts. It does sound like a good time for change. However every article sounds like two prized fighters in a bloody battle for glory. That is a matter of opinion; both sides have much to gain, but only one way to proceed. In many ways, we are all fighting for a cause. The sides we choose however seem to be more towards whether it jeopardizes the safety of self or others. Well that is justice, yet again that is bias. 

Time and time again, my beloved franchise displays those consequences and actions humanity has committed itself. All the bad in the world condensed in a universe of aggressive, vicious and dark intentions. The idealized society of cooperation towards a common goal of the Federation. The ongoing struggle towards tolerance and exploration is something to strive in this day in age.

Seems like there is nothing like Star Trek anymore; such a shame. The stories and revelations make it more intriguing. Curiosity and a peace seems to be the main idea of the stories told. Many which mirrors the issues we as a society has to deal then, now and in the near future. Sometimes I think the geeks will exactly inherit the Earth. With history repeating itself, that would be quite a futile task. Still animosity between the ideas and opinions, with everything new the old problems return with it. Example to the young and relevant is the copyright/piracy situation. In the digital age, piracy is simpler and more (dare I say) accessible. However the people who profit from the copyrights have been fighting for protection since the start of printing press. Could’ve started with a bickering between authors, or just one man wanting more money to increase his profit margins. Point is everything we have now is really just unfinished business.

Maybe the world could watch a series and consider opening their minds to similarities. Star Trek could save the world…you never know.
