Sorry...Its Been A Long Time

Its been awhile. I haven't been able to write much because I have been super busy with this AWESOME (SMH) semester. Classes have been rough this fall. I think they could be better but things are the way they are. Although the semester has been time-consuming and hard, I still have had a good time. Lets catch you up on what I have done since the last time that I have posted!

Well the rest of my summer was pretty epic. I went to the Western and Southern Open in Cincinnati. I got to watch Federer, Venus and Serena Williams, Andy Roddick, and Del Potro practice! I also got to watch a couple of matches. The highlight, of course, was watching my hero Andy Roddick. He was my inspiration in playing tennis when I was younger. Furthermore, it makes me sad that he has retired from the game. At the open I even got to meet Brian Baker who took a picture with me and also signed a tennis ball for me. Very nice guy!

Also, I attended Fandomfest in Louisville, KY. I had a great time because I got to meet Nicholas Brendon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Colin Ferguson (Eureka). Also, I got a bunch of free swag from the event.

In September, I attended the Cincinnati Comic Expo. In my opinion, I spent too much money. Although true, I had a great time with my brother Jeremy and sister Cassie. While I was there, I got to buy an exclusive Supernatural poster, Veronica Mars Season 1 and 2 cards, and some comics. I also got to meet Carl from the Walking Dead and Georges Jeanty, the artist for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics. Jeanty signed a couple of items for me and even gave me a free comic (#swag). He was pretty awesome and I look forward to meeting him again. Next stop, I am hoping to meet Joss Whedon! Moreover, while I was there I got to meet one of of my favorite heroes. Yes, Jason David Frank! If you do not who Jason David Frank is, well go back into hiding under your rock. I got nervous meeting the epic Green/White Ranger. All I have to say he is one of the coolest people I have ever meet! We talked for a few minutes and he signed a couple of my items I brought with me.

Also, in September, I went to the Decatur Book Festival in Atlanta. There I got to meet the authors Ella James (Here) and Erin Morgenstern (The Night Circus). Morgenstern drew a cat in my book. EPIC!

Furthermore, in October, I got to go to the Southern Festival of Books in Nashville. While I was there, I got to meet the historian James McPherson, Ron Rash (Saints at the River), Amanda Havard (The Survivors Series), Sharon Creech (Walk to Moons), C.J. Redwine (Defiance),  and Sharon Cameron (The Dark Unwinding). Also, I got bought a book signed by Jessica Khoury called Origins. My friend Kayla went on Sunday (I went Saturday) and got autographs for me from R.L. Stine (Goosebumps) and Jeff Hirsch (Magisterium). Overall the Nashville event was a great time.

But that is pretty much my updates for right now! Hope you enjoyed them and if you have questions let me know!
