After this year's A&G fiasco and how unimpressed I was at the regular Heritage and Topps Chrome box I bought I'll be sticking to some of the cheap stuff that involves prospects. Plus there's a chance that I'll be going back to the states next year which means I won't be able to blow off my money on Card Gen (which in turn sucks because a Bryce Harper card's probably going to be released next year, GAH!).

I was born and raised in New York to Japanese parents. Around '07 when I was about finish my second year of middle school my family started falling apart and I was sent to live with my relatives in Japan so my parents could work out any problems they had between them (which they did in vain as it resulted in a divorce) and to keep me off drugs (which also failed since I'm still a cardboard junkie ). And I've been in this country since.
So yeah, nothing romantic like my girlfriend being here (because girls look at me as a foreigner I've always been friendzoned lol) or cool like me serving my country.
And right now I'm attending college over here but things have really gone south for me since the day I got accepted (I'm not surprised though since I still can't read over half of the kanji letters in the Japanese language). So I've been talking with my old man (who still lives in NY) about maybe coming home and enrolling in a college in NY next year.
Which basically means that I'll be scooping up as many blasters as I can of '13 Bowman Draft come next year. Right after I sell off my Card Gen extras at stupid and downright unfair prices (mwuhahaha).

And thanks for the advice. Right now nothing's set in stone but I'm probably gonna go to a community college for 2 years first since my english hasn't grown an inch since I left the states and is in danger of being replaced with engrish as each day goes by and then enroll into another 4 year college.
