I haven't written in this thing for a long time so figured I'd provide a little bit of an update and give this thing a try . Been busy with work and life outside of furry as of late so I haven't been very active on here. Between work, family life, and finishing up my masters degree I haven't had much time for furry conventions or furry in general. With the exception of some public furry related suiting events near my hometown I haven't done much in the way of cons.  In fact its hard to believe that with the exception of AC I haven't been to any other conventions since 2010. I don't think I've been this inactive in furry since I had been deployed overseas. As most of you know I'm semi retired from the national guard although I still do occasionally do some contract and advising work for them.  Other then that just been enjoying life and been busy with work and non furry stuff.  This past weekend I was able to hit up fcn on Friday and Saturday morning, although I had to come back home Saturday afternoon because of work on Sunday. It was really nice getting to see some old faces that I haven't seen in a few years or more, and also nice meeting a few new people. So for all of you I got to spend a little time with, you know who you are. Thanks for helping me have a great time ^^. There were many folks I didn't get to see at fcn who I heard had attended. I hope all of you also had a great time and I'm sorry I didn't get to see you. That's just how conventions go sometimes, and since I didn't get to spend the whole weekend, this made it tougher to spend time with folks. Also for those of you I haven't seen for longer, I hope to be able to catch up with some of you on messenger, and future cons.  Aside from that I was able to debue Hamatu. A character I had created several years ago, and finally was able to bring to life. I want to thank Onefurall for all their hard work on this suit. I think he was well received at fcn this year, and hope to also get him out at Anthrocon this year as well. I will try and post some pictures of him later this week on my fur affinity account, so keep eyes open for him. Other then that thank you to everyone who has watched me even when my accounts not super active. I hope your all well and enjoy the rest of your weekend and week.  Until I post more pictures on my fa here's one picture I found of him to hold you over.

In other news I should be working on my lectures right now but didn't quite want to so I did this video instead.

Hope you all enjoy.

It has been forever since I've posted to this thing.  Life is going well on my end.  Last year was quite busy as I worked on finishing up my undergrad degree.  I was very fortunate to finish up with a double major in Biology and Environmental Science as well as a minor in Computer information systems and Meterology.  I finished up this in December.  Last year I had many opportunities and struggles to deal with through the year.  Con wise I was very fortunate to make FC, FWA, FCN, AC, EF, and Mff.  Probably the most cons I ever did and will ever do in a year.  I also had the opportunity to spend alot of time with family and close friends of mine throughout the country.  I won't bore you all with the details in this area but it really was a good year ^^.  On another front some of you know that I delt with illness last year but managed to beat it and become healthy again.  Im very fortunate to have the love and support of friends and familiy around me to make me the person I am today.  I want to thank each and every one of you for the part you helped play in me maintaining a positive attitude as well. 

The next thing that occured was I have officially gone inactive at the end of last year in the military.  This means for now no more training and I get to breath a sigh of relief for now.  Doesn't mean its over but means for now Im done.  I think this has also taught me alot and was a good experience in life.  Finally I was accepted to grad school and started up just a few weeks ago.  They gave me the opportunity to take classes to work towards my masters.  In addition to this Im in a partnership with several other colleges and am teaching a course to college Freshman.  They seem to be a good class and very intersted.  I am currently teaching Oceanography.  With any luck and hard work over the summer I may be lucky and finish up with a masters degree in Environmental studies with a focus in Environmental Education by the end of this year.

I hope everything is going well with everyone on their end.  Now this isn't even close to everything that happened to me last year but I didn't want to go on posting pages of life stories.  So I thought a few life updates might be of interest to some of you. 

Here I leave you with a picture that I took with a friend at FC.  As you can see Kokoes head was redone by Kodi.  Same basic design but he redid the fur on him and slimmed him up a bit.  See if you can tell the difference with the heads ^^.

Everyone keep your head high and hope all is well.  For now I leave you all but hopefully will update again soon.

Thanks to all of you who responded to that post.  It gave me some input on a few things.  This also helped me to appreciate things more and at the same time learn a little more about all of you ^^.  I suppose its my turn to answer these questions.

So a few questions: 

How long have you been furry?  Officially since 1996. 

How long have you been attending conventions (if you attend cons)?  Its been about ten years now.

What was your first convention?  I did a furmeet back in 1998 but my first convention was when I spent one day at Further Confustion in 1999.  My aunt who was furry at the time brought me to this con for a day.

If you don't attend conventions how long have you been active in the furry fandom? 

I just thought this might be fun.  So let me know.

Thanks and hope all are doing well.
