4/23/2014 Making plans

I finished a bit more of the commentary (strips 266 - 270), ten more to go.

Only a week and a half until summer break... I spent a long time thinking about what I was going to do this summer but had to wait to see what would happen with a couple of things before making any plans. But then those things finally fell into place late last week and I've been scrambling to get things planned out. I'm not done yet, but I'm making good progress. I'll be leaving Florida right after the start of summer break. I would have preferred to wait a few days or a week, but I actually need to be in Honolulu that Monday, so there's no time. And, since I have to go to Honolulu anyway, and I can stay in my parents' condo, I'll be hanging out there for a few weeks. I plan to divide my time there between relaxing and doing some serious work on Aurora's Nightmare. After that, I've got some international traveling planned (I'll save the details of that for later) which will probably last around six weeks. But the exact end date of trip, along with where I'll be going and what I'll be doing afterwards, is still up in the air depending on how some other stuff goes. Visiting family is Arizona is likely, but it'll probably be another few weeks before I can work out the details. Anyway, I'll give you guys the run down once I finish working things out. You know, some year it'd be nice to have a summer where I could plan everything leisurely far in advance... Maybe next year...

4/16/2014 A brief tour of Boston

If you didn't see Monday's post, Guardian of the Stone (one of my novels) is free on Amazon this week. On a completely different topic, did any of you guys see the blood moon Monday night? I got rather lucky and managed to see it despite a lot of clouds. My camera, as much as I like it, isn't really ideal for photographing the night sky, but I did manage to get one pretty nice picture. Now for one last belated travelogue...

Saturday (March 29th): A Brief Tour of Boston
I was only in Boston for a few days and most of that was taken up with family stuff (I was there for my Grandma's 95th birthday party), but on Saturday morning my cousins gave my brother and I a quick walking tour of the city. There wasn't time to see a whole lot, but it was fun. And it was kind of cool to see the city now since as I was recently running around Revolutionary era Boston in Assassin's Creed III.
The history behind the city still shows through and it's full of cool old buildings, both important ones like the state capital, and regular homes. There's also a ridiculous number of impressive old churches. It seems like we ran into another one every block or two. But the coolest place we saw was the Boston library. If it's not the world's fanciest library, it's certainly near the top of the list with all the marble, arches, and elaborate murals. And check out this study hall. You didn't see all that many books though, and most of the ones there were old and rare (here's my brother and cousins in front of one of the shelves). As it turned out, there's a more modern and ordinary wing where most of the books are kept. We also walked around a fancy mall, stopped in a store dedicated to 3D printers (which was neat), stopped by an interesting playground, and got a nice view of the river.
And that's about it. I didn't get to see all that much of Boston, but it was fun and I'd love to spend a couple days there sometime and take a closer look around.
