As you might imagine it's been hectic to say the least as I'm currently in the middle of buying a house.
Reading back at these blogs it's amazing to think how this all started and January has been one of the craziest months I think I've ever had in this great sport.
This month I got to interview Anthony Pettis, Scott Jorgensen, Dean Amasinger, Mark Munoz and Brad Pickett and MMAHQ seems to be picking up more and more momentum every day.
Thanks to everyone who's checked out any of my stuff over the last few months, it's really all appreciated. I've also had a Super Nintendo bought for me so I've been spending a lot of time getting a full 96 world clear on Super Mario World.
2011 has the potential to be a crazy big year and I've already done some great press work for Halo, Rogue, UCMMA and a few others.
So why the Castlevania picture? Well it's Castlevania 4 that made me take stock the other day of just what I'd achieved. When I first played that game I was 14 and I had a head full of ridiculous dreams and ambitions. Apart from feeling a lot older now, I guess not a great deal has changed.
I remember playing that game and wondering about life and about what I wanted to do after I left school. I remember thinking all I want is a pretty girl, a nice house and a huge TV with a load of SNES games. Apart from that I had no idea. I'm days away from ticking off the last item on that last as it stands and it made me think whats next?
As it stands at the minute I'm happy where I am and I can't wait to see what happens this year. Reading back on this blog is such a journey and I thank anyone who takes the time.
I love writing more than anything and I plan to do a whole lot more of it in the year ahead. Castlevania might not be my destination, but it certainly was my road map. The plans I made when storming Dracula's castle with Simon Belmont are coming true as we speak but the way onward is something so exciting that I can't even begin to put it into words.
Until next time people
