I just got back from the first softball game of the new season.

“Softball?” you might ask. “In February? In Colorado?” Yep, yep, and uh-uh. And you know what? It was actually a pretty nice night out. Looks like all those years of spraying aerosol cans up into the atmosphere is finally starting to pay off.

No word from school yet. As I mentioned before, I don’t really expect to hear anything until April. I just checked the site, and it says my app isn’t even through the first stage of evaluation yet, so it would seem I’ve still got a while to wait.

I’ve been trying to keep the momentum going since getting my application in. It hasn’t really been easy, but I’ve tried. I actually have gotten a few projects finished.

  1. My track for Pokémon: The Missingno Tracks, a ReMix album which is due out tomorrow. Pretty excited about that.
  2. Finished a second round of crosswords to submit for publication. Will hopefully mail these out tomorrow.
  3. Conquered Matt Gaffney’s “LITERARY FEBRUARY.”Fun times.
  4. Was defensive coordinator for a team that took down the championship in Goal Line Blitz. LOL. Finally.

So I guess that stuff is not completely productive towards anything important. But it has been fun. There’s a few other things I’ve been working on, too, but they clearly aren’t interesting enough to be thought of by my brain right now.

I wanted to give a quick shout to Ben Hale, whose debut novel The Evolution of Bruno Littlemore just hit stores this last month, to widespread critical acclaim. Ben Hale and I are acquaintances from high school, and he’s the kind of dude you can sit and listen to for hours on end, because he’s a great story teller. I have my copy, but I haven’t read it yet, because…

OH YEAH. That’s another thing I accomplished. I finished reading the Old Testament. I found it pretty weird. So I’ll probably be reading the New Testament before I get to Ben’s book.

Anyhoo, I’ll be talking more about many of these things as release dates and letters come. Until then!
