It's about time; almost one year since I've posted anything. Newgrounds, I have missed you.
What's New?:College. I have been focusing chiefly on my schoolwork for the first time in a long time. I managed a 4.0 during the fall semester and I'm looking to go back-to-back for the spring. In short, SUNY New Paltz has been an enlightening experience. I feel as if all of the unnecessary anger and frustration from high school has evaporated. Now, I am looking forward to my Junior year while thinking about my future and graduate school in law, education, or business. There were so many uncertainties only two years ago. It is amazing to see progression so swift and decisive.
How about them Flashes?: Flashing has been admittedly far back in the recesses of my mind. But, when summer starts, I plan on putting out at least one movie ... hopefully more. The movie will probably be a good ol' fashioned Mario sprite flick, but there's also Funky Turtles, a project which I haven't completely abandoned (check out my last post for more info). As I've said before, I miss the days of Super Mario Land. 2006 was my breakthrough year, and the rush I got from the loving reviews and praise will always be a fond memory. Sometimes, people find it difficult to understand how a person can be so attached to flashes. They claim that flashes (and the awards, etc.) are "virtual." It's all about the passion that goes into the flash - the late nights, the cups of coffee, spawning the ideas during school. It takes dedication to produce and complete an animation, and a whole lot of character to subject one's work to the opinions of others. With this in mind, I am very excited to work on a project or two over the summer. It's gonna be like a swim in the ocean.
I hope everyone else is doing well!
