So had some tech problems, missed a post. Oh well.
Magic wise I'm experiencing a lull in my enthusiasm and the patter I'm trying to memorize is proving difficult. When I get to a certain point my mind just blanks on the next part. Maybe I need to try harder or something.
I think maybe a job would help, it would certainly pay for materials till I can get out and perform for monies. But a good old fashion suck job would motivate me more to follow my passions.
