In The Midst Of Any Rise To Fame, Infamy May Ensue...

One of my parents' favourite sayings is that you have your whole life to create your defining work, the one thing that pushes you over all the initial hurdles and onwards to fame and success (and the hurdles that you'll encounter from there).  That one work you created or of which you were a part is what gets you there. You have your whole life to achieve it up until that point. From there, you only have twenty minutes to achieve your next, and so on and so on... Consider that during the time you're building yourself. Your life and career up to that achievement whatever it may be. Graduation. Your dream career. A successful business. Your marriage. Your first child. Your family. Your directorial debut. Your first book to sell a million. Your first starring role in a major blockbuster motion picture. For everyone its different. Pursuing a life dream means something different to each and every one of us. However, for some, it does put you in the public eye and under scrutiny

Weekend Construction

I spent the weekend doing some stuff around the house (including reframing and cleaning some of my comic book collection). I also spent a few hours designing this fortresss inspired by Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Thailand architecture in the game Conan Exiles.

Yes, I often play as a woman in order to promote women despite the fact that I'm a man. Not only that but I'd much rather admire my on screen character in the form of a woman (it sure beats having a male character and then having to watch his butt for an hour or more).

I built from the ground up this snazzy fortress in Conan Exiles.
