FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Finally going somewhere!
Posted on Thursday, February 18 2010 @ 16:27:56 PST

It's been a while since I posted, but I have been busy.

With two new jobs....that are pretty awesome.

The first one is a teaching position with middle school kids that have high functioning (and in some cases lower functioning) autism. Rough work, but it's really, really rewarding. It's also steady, and frankly I couldn't be happier with that. I basically back up the teacher who does lessons, while I facilitate them, kind of like a TA, but with more power. The job is really fun, but time consuming and kind of tiring, but I love it (and id love it more if school wasn't an issue.)

My second job is not really a job, but something I have been looking forward to for a long time. I entered a contest recently for some off-shoot video game website that was looking for writers, and won (thank you "A Gay old Time") So they asked me to write for them!

Yes, it mean's I am officially (more unofficially, since i'm not being paid) a game journalist! I have already penned a few reviews for the site, and if time goes on, I might actually be paid for my work, or even better, be sent to events like E3.

Granted though, the site is small, twenty or so people know about it, and it is still going through growing pains with beta and what not, but hey, everyone has to start somewhere if they know no one!

If you want more information, PM me and I will direct you to the website, otherwise, and out of respect, I will likely not be posting any Vox-Pop blogs or reviews here anymore........

So I guess, that means i'm retired.....except for one more I HAVE to write, and that is Bioshock 2....
