My Farewell

After some thought, I have decided that I am not going to post on this blog anymore and not access this blog anymore.

This is something that has actually been on my mind for a while now and it has not been an easy decision for me to come to.  Nonetheless, I feel that it is something that is for the best.

Before I say anything else, I apologize to the person who has followed this blog (you know who you are) and I thank you for following this blog.

I would like to say that I have certainly enjoyed my time on here, even if it hasn’t been too lively.  I wish that I could stay on here, but due to a few personal reasons, I just can’t see that happening.  While I won’t divulge those reasons, I will say that they have nothing to do with the person who has followed this blog, any of the people who have read this blog, nor any of the people who have commented on this blog.

If you want to find me, you can check me out on my other blog about dragons and How to Train Your Dragon.

I would be pleased and delighted to see you there.  As a heads up, I don’t use Disqus for comments on that blog, as Disqus can’t be installed on that blog.  If you want to leave comments on that blog, all that you need is a name (and it doesn’t matter if it’s your Disqus username or another name) and an e-mail address.

To the person who has followed this blog, everyone who has read this blog, and everyone who has commented on this blog, thank you so much for everything.

The Second Anniversary of How to Train Your Dragon 2

Today is the second anniversary of How to Train Your Dragon 2!  I can't believe that How to Train Your Dragon 2 is two years old now, to say the least.

Anyways, I celebrated today by watching How to Train Your Dragon 2 while multi-tasking (briefly chatting with a few people on the Berk's Grapevine public chat and chatting with one person on Skype) after I got home from work.  I didn't really have any different feelings than the last time that I watched it, though I will admit that I wept a bit during Stoick's funeral for the second time.

I can't really think of anything else to say, except that I can't wait for the third film and I hope it won't disappoint.

A Funny Sign

I know that I haven’t posted any new entries in a while.  I’ve been busy with work and other things in life.  In addition, I’ve been having an existential crisis lately (which hasn’t been resolved yet).

Anyways, I thought I’d share something that I think is funny.

Whenever someone calls me “bud” or I hear someone call someone else “bud” at work, I always think of Hiccup calling Toothless “bud”.

Is this a sign of my slight obsession with How to Train Your Dragon?  Probably.  ;) XD

The Fifth Has Come Again

Well, today is my birthday, and it was a cool day.

I got to sleep in this morning, which was a relief.  Before I woke up, I had a dream where my dragon guardian/guide told me to be thankful that he is my guardian.

For the afternoon, I just hung out at home, surfed the Internet, watched random videos on Youtube, and briefly chatted with two people from Berk’s Grapevine on Skype (both of whom wished me a happy birthday ^^).  I also got two gift cards for restaurants from my father.

Then, in the evening, I had dinner out with a couple of my friends.  I told them how I was and we talked with each other, but I mostly listened to them talk about different things (sometimes while chuckling).  They told me that they didn’t get my gift yet because they were busy with other things, which I understood.  After we finished having dinner, I went home and my family and I had cake.

Overall, I had a good birthday this year.  I’m happy about the gifts that I got (so far, anyways) and I’m glad that I have the family and friends that I have.

On a final note, I thought that I’d end this entry with a little bit of trivia:  Like Hiccup, I was born prematurely.

A Thought and a Feeling

Sorry that I haven’t posted anything in a while.  I’ve been busy writing a couple of poems (both of which were inspired by some of my dreams about dragons) and doing other things in life.

Anyways, something interesting that relates to my dragon guardian/guide happened a little while ago.

I was writing part of a short poem that’s more or less my reflection on my dragon guardian/guide telling me that it is time to know who I am.  At this point, I thought that I was done writing it, but I suddenly had the desire to write a few additional stanzas for it (and I’m glad that I did).  After I wrote the first of those stanzas, I thought about it (that stanza) and thinking about it led to me feeling that I was understanding my dragon guardian/guide a little better than I was before.  It’s not that I felt that I was writing from his point of view, because I wasn’t, but that I somewhat felt where he was coming from with regards to telling me that it is time to know who I am.

On a somewhat different note, I don’t know where I’m going to take this blog for the time being.  I’ve been writing some new entries, but I’m not quite sure about what to post next.

Happy How to Train Your Dragon Day!

Happy How to Train Your Dragon day!

I can’t believe that the film How to Train Your Dragon is six years old now.  I didn’t watch it while it was out in theaters, but I watched it back in 2014 and I’m so glad that I did.  It became one of my favorite films about dragons, not to mention that it introduced me to an incredible fandom that I’m glad to be a part of.

Anyways, since I didn’t celebrate this day last year, I plan on celebrating it by watching How to Train Your Dragon later tonight.

A Good (and Funny) Thing

One year ago today, I finished writing my poem about my dragon guardian/guide.  (Well, to be more specific, I finished writing the first draft of it.  I made many revisions to it later on, and I plan on making some more revisions to it in the future.)  I felt a real sense of relief at the time and felt that I had outdone myself, as it ended up being longer than I originally intended it to be.  I was surprised at how fast it came together as well.  To this day, I consider it to be my magnum opus and feel that I won’t be able to top it in the future.

There is one thing about this that’s funny to me, though:  Since then, I haven’t had a dream where my dragon guardian/guide has asked me if I wrote a poem about him or has told me that he knows that I wrote a poem about him.  XD
