In my last entry (half a year ago :omg: ), I asked what happiness was and thought I found it with the "best weekend of my life".  Well, I amend my answer.  The best weekend of my life happened this past June.  It was the one thing that could top my Skype cameo at the X Games Aspen: going to X Games Austin and meeting some of my favorite athletes.  Even now when I think about what happened, I just get teleported to my personal heaven. :love: Although the weekend had some hiccups, it was still magical... and you can read all about it at To the Power of X: this post links to all the entries and photos.

Everything just pales in comparison to the X Games even if they would normally be exciting.  All-con went well as usual.  Dallas Comic Con was exhausting (but I got to meet Ming-na Wen).  Anime Matsuri, I have more mixed feelings about.  It's complicated.  I did get a lot of cool articles and photos out of it for JRock247 and NekoPOP.  I also got to interview Anna Tsuchiya via email after the con.  Honestly I've fallen out of touch with a lot of Japanese entertainment and fashion. :hmm: Don't get me wrong; I still enjoy it.  Other things have just taken precedent in my life.  Nevertheless, I appreciate the opportunities I get to share something cool, especially when it can also raise awareness like the drama IS which is about intersex teens.

On the subject of raising awareness, I did the inadvisable and addressed the trolls. :finger: However, I did it through another post, and I want to share here so that people can understand why yellowface is still a problem today.  As evident with all my blogs and the poems on Rogue Group Writing, social justice has come into the forefront of my life.  I want my writing to educate, provoke, and inspire; I want it to make the world a better place.

Unfortunately I haven't reconciled the need to address present-day, real world issues with my fictional worlds very well yet.  I hope I can figure this out better.  Sometimes I go through my old works, and I smile at what came out of me (sometimes I cringe).  I just posted a document titled "fairytale1" on my computer.  I couldn't figure out what it was at first, and then when I read it, "JacQ the Space Pirate - a Sci-fi Fairy Tale", I was very amused.  The X Games made me realize that I can't sit and wait for inspiration to come or for my life to stabilize so that I can think about stories.  I just got give it a shot.  Right now I'm a bit too frazzled with burlesque matters and another con (I know I'm making excuses but I have a show tomorrow that I really should be focusing on), but I'm ready to make my life change.  Before I leave you, here's one more link.  It's to the 2015 issue of The Gunpowder Review, which contains two of my poems: click here to buy a copy.
