School exams are finally out of the way, now I can relax! :)

And damn! Just have to wait until next Tuesday and then I'll finally have Assassin's Creed: Revelations! SO EXCITED! :D
I'm glad it comes out after my school exams, otherwise there'd be a problem. :P

Oh, and I've finally come out of my shell and started sharing my original story with some friends on Facebook, and to my surprise and joy they actually like it! :D
I don't think of myself as a bad writer, but I didn't expect two or three friends asking me when the next chapter's going to be posted or asking me what happened to a certain character. It's made me so happy! I get excited just as I write a chapter and go through a part where there's a nice twist here and a little cliffhanger there. 
I'm thinking of putting the story up on here, but maybe after I've got a few more chapters up - I'm up to my fifth one now. :)

7hanks for lis7ening!

Why are voice actors so freakin' awesome?!
It's like seeing a familiar actor in a movie every so often, but with video games/animated series you only have the voice to recognize. 
While playing games, I've occasionally said to myself, "Oh, I've heard this voice before!" and try to guess or look up the cast.
Then BOOM! Holy crap! That's so-and-so's voice from this game or whatever! *Squee!* :D

I'm just having a nice geeky moment over this because I have a voice fetish and there's a lot of VAs who I've heard in numerous games I play.
There's John DiMaggio, Nolan North, Mark Hamill, Alan Tudyk, Fred Tatasciore, Roger Craig Smith, Adam Baldwin, Carlos Ferro, Steve Blum, David Skully, Nathan Fillion, and loads more!
It's just so awesome! Especially when most of these voice actors are just as nerdy over a series as you are -- I love hearing from a fellow fan who has met one of the VAs and says that they're really nice people, that they love hearing from fans and talking about the series they worked on. It's like they aren't just giving their voices to a character but they're also part of the fandom/family.

Anyways, I'm off to play Assassin's Creed. Funny how I can't watch most movies anymore without thinking "there's a viewpoint!" or fangirling over a character free-running on rooftops. :P

P.S. Happy belated Halloween everyone! The one year that mum was actually prepared with candy and nobody comes to our house. Oh well, more for us! ;P
