- Comics, Manga, and Other Random Musings
- April 23rd, 10:07
I’ve never been a comic book person, sure I read the occasional comic book form of mangas if I was completely in-love with the anime series--Sailor Moon and Gundam Wing being prime examples of this obsessed, crazy love. I even still own the manga I had managed to collect before I stopped collecting (for whatever reason).
I’m sure I would have probably continued to stay in my little corner of the universe and ignored comic books if it hadn’t been thanks to the internet and fanfiction. Thor and the Avengers introduced me to the amazing and amusing character that is Clint Barton, after that I just had to get to know him better. The internet provided me his backstory and fanfiction gave me insight into his comic book alter-ego. Long story, short – I’m now reading the latest series of Hawkeye, Black Widow, and this weekend I picked up the first two issues of the Secret Avengers, volume 3?, (because I love Phil Coulson and need him in my life).
If anyone has any other suggestions for comic series I need to try, drop a comment. Recommendations are welcomed and appreciated.
In the other areas of my life, I was turned down for a job because I was overqualified and the director thought I would be bored. She said this to my face. I’m of the firm opinion, whether or not I’ll be bored, is my issue and not yours. The only thing they should worry about is whether or not I do my job accurately and efficiently. I’ll deal with my level of entertainment the same way I always do, by writing and daydreaming about plots and characters. Fun times, fun times.
I have started another temporary work assignment. It’s with another law firm, but they don’t appear to be as mismanaged as the last one, so huzzah. Another plus are the hours… shorter. Though I will say, the start time makes me a tad crazy. I’m used to starting at 8 and then getting the hell of there once my 8 hours are done. Yet at this job, the start time is 9:30am, which makes me feel like half my morning has been wasted. Call me crazy but that is how I roll.
My eldest nephew and his impending high school graduation makes me feel old. I mean I’m 28 and have two teenage nephews and a niece under the age of 10. How is this my life? Never mind the massive age gaps between their ages…especially if I ever get around to having kids. Any kid I’ll have will feel exactly like I did when I learned that majority of my dad’s nieces and nephews were closer to his age than mine. Although my dad was the youngest kid in his family and there was a 20 year gap between him and his eldest sibling.
