Two months ago I set sail in a little boat to find the end of the world. And I found it. And promptly fell off the edge.
I did not intend to go on such a long hiatus. I love my blog and my blog followers and all my interweb friends. I love YouTube videos and memes and cat gifs. But I needed to unplug in the worst way. My brain was completely fried and in trying to care about everyone around me, I found I didn’t have enough left for myself.
Queue up a tiny, sad violin. This isn’t abnormal for me. I struggle every summer with blogger burnout. It happens. I had a really fantastic summer though and aside from getting unexpectedly sick and getting poked with a needle an unforgivable number of times, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I started several new projects, two of which I can’t talk about, and wrote almost 50,000 awesome, edited superhero words. Just so we’re clear, while I maybe watched a lot of TV, I also wrote several thousand words a day. (Hip hip hooray for one particularly incredible 16,000 word weekend!)
Speaking of TV, there are some really fantastic shows on right now, particularly in the sci-fi universe. Alphas, anyone? Come on now, you didn’t think I wouldn’t pine after this show, did you? *love*
For the record, I also gorged myself on Leverage, Warehouse 13, Revenge, Scandal, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Army Wives, and Pretty Little Liars.
In my personal opinion, Army Wives has some of the best character development I’ve ever seen and Leverage scores big for best dialogue.
I’ve watched the first two episodes of Revolution and all I can say is, CLEANEST APOCALYPSE EVER. I expected more from the Abrams/Kripke dream team, but instead we get some of the worst dialogue I’ve ever been subjected to. It’s quickly becoming the 50 Shades of the apocalypse genre. It reminds me of Jericho but less awesome, and I loved Jericho so I really want to love Revolution, but my gut tells me I’m in for a disappointment. They made 4 episodes off the bat so I’ll give them until episode 5 to see if the new episodes fix some of the Too Stupid To Live problems the characters have amassed and for the love of god dirty the characters up. It’s the apocalypse and there’s no running water and Katniss Charlie looks like she just stepped out of a shampoo commercial.
What I’m trying to say is, a lot has happened, but I’ve missed you. All of you. A lot.
I’m sorry I’ve been horribly absent. I’m not 100% but I’m ready to come crawling home, wild oats sown. Catch me up on the good and the bad in the comments. How are you?
