Hey guys! I’m Cody. Most of my online friends call me Solace, or Sol for short.
I’m here to share anime and gaming content with you. Before I get to that, I’ll tell you my story. (If you’re not interested in my story, go ahead and skip right to the end where I talk about anime and gaming)
I grew up in Bartlett, TN. I was absolutely sure that college just wasn’t for me… I had decided by the time I was in middle school that I would be joining the Marine Corps, and that is exactly what I did.
Two weeks after I graduated high school in 2009, I found myself standing on the yellow footprints in Parris Island, South Carolina. Upon finishing boot camp, I learned my MOS in Cory Station down in Pensacola, Florida. I graduated at the top of my class, and was afforded the luxury to have an input on my duty station. Naturally, I chose Hawaii, and that is where I was stationed.
I deployed to Afghanistan in 2011. I reached the rank of Sergeant in 2013. The Marine Corps turned me into a man, and the experiences it gave me shaped me into who I am today… but when it came time in 2014, I decided to go my own way.
I guess college ended up being on my to-do list after all. I attended Christian Brothers University in Memphis, Tennessee, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering. It has been pointed out to me that I am clearly a masochist, since I willingly put myself through the Marines, and followed that by going directly into university for an engineering discipline.
Either way, here I am, and this is where I’m at in life now. I love Star Wars, anime, working on cool projects, gaming, and paddle boarding. I also spend a good amount of my free time learning the Japanese language; I find it fascinating.
I have an Xbox One X, a PS4, a PC, and a Nintendo Switch. I’ve been playing Xbox since the original Xbox came out. Halo was my first game, so Halo holds a special place for me. I got a PS4 mainly to play the exclusives. For the most part, I play multi-platform games and multiplayer games on Xbox One X, and I play Japanese games and exclusives on PS4. I built my own PC and that’s what I’m on most of the time. I don’t care to participate in console wars. I think all three consoles are fantastic machines. When I play games, I’ll post about them here, so be sure to check out my posts!
I love anime. I watch lots of it. I aim to provide blogging and plot analysis on my favorite shows in conjunction with my Instagram. Same thing with my YouTube channel, which I am still working on setting up. I also aim to provide reviews on certain shows that I watch. I hope you’ll come along on this journey with me!
