Hola mi amigos, I'm Derrii-kun, which is what you'll come to know me best I am sure. Mii~chan summed up the both of us pretty well actually in her earlier post, so I'll just share some extra base essentials about myself: I recently got a degree in Graphic Design, so that is what I am currently driving towards for my career, along with a more unconventional path called comic book writing, I love to write comics and stories so you will most definitely get to see a lot of my work on here. So stay tuned. I love all things nerdy, and I have two cats myself: Leo and Bailey. And trust me, you will get to know them pretty well on here too. :) I love my friends and family and just havin' a rip-roarin' good time. I currently work as an ad designer for a small newspaper in a town near where I live, and it is so exciting!
Before you can get to know us, I think you have to know us individually. Some things have been the same through the years while some has changed since we've been together. I'm a theater girl. That's actually what I'm going to college for. I plan on being a drama teacher/director in the future. It truly is my passion. I absolutely love the stage. I love watching it, being on it, or being behind it. I also love art. You'll probably get to see some of my artwork on here. Oh and of course I can't forget: ANIME! It honestly is what brought us together. After a pool party where we first met he wanted to see this Akamaru backpack that I had. lol (Akamaru is a dog from the anime Naruto) We both love anime, manga, comics, and video games. We go to conventions and cosplay, and other fun nerdy stuff. ^^ The other defining (most people will say) about me is my love for cats. You will hear a lot about my little darlings, Skye and Speedo. I love anything and everything about cats. You'll learn more about me as the blog goes on but there's something to start with. Also...I can't spell and whatnot too good. ^^' So please bear with me until Derrick has the time to edit my posts. lol
Hello, world of ours!
That's right, it's our world and you're just livin' in it. My name is Derrick Crow, and this is Megan Smith, his girlfriend of 3 years (well, almost 3 years, but the anniversary is coming up!). We have lived in two separate cities all our lives and for our entire relationship, both cities are around about an hour a part from one another. Now, an hour you say? That doesn't seem too bad... but think about the hours in the day and the price for gas these days? It all starts to add up now doesn't it. But for all this time, we have worked so hard to keep our relationship healthy and strong. Now... it hasn't been all peaches and cream, we've had some really hard times and forces of nature (and nurture) working against us, but through it all we've prevailed. And even as we keep heading into our lives it may seem like we will be almost an hour a part from each for more years to come. Will always have to take those long gas guzzling trips to see one another for a few hours. Because Megan is starting college, and myself I have a career journey I am starting down. So it's gotten really hard matching our schedules. But we're here to tell you, we love one another. Truly. And this has been one long distance relationship that has worked, and we know others can too. So we're hoping this blog helps inspire others to know it is possible; we will update separately when apart, and together when... well, together. We are making this world our own and making sure no one stops us from being together. That's all it really takes to make sure any relationship works. And so, going forward... welcome to the ride... buckle up, and here we go!
