Random 411: Playing Catch-Up

If there are any gripes I have about my unexpected, long break is the fact that I did nothing, I mean nothing, that really kept me up to par on reading, television, and movies. Of course there was a good reason why, but really, I was pretty much on auto pilot for most of the month. This means I’m playing catch-up. I mean, I only watched two movies in August, read almost nothing either, and pretty much ignored television. Since I’m juggling trimming down my to-read list, to-watch list, work, school, working on getting better, and mini breaks (so I don’t loose my mind) it’s going unbearably slow for me. But, among the things I’ve learned this past month is to take a deep breath when things get overwhelming so . . . yeah, I’ll get there. I won’t promise a deadline, but know that I’ll get there. Here are…

Entertainment 411: Happy Dance!

blog_autumnishere

Because Autumn is here! It’s my favorite season. I’m not quite sure why it’s my favorite exactly, since I live in an area where you can’t really see autumn, like with changing of the colors and everything. Maybe it’s because of Halloween. Except I never was a big fan of Halloween until recently. Maybe because I consider it an in-between. You know, there is summer and then winter and in between you have spring and fall. I think it’s because the air is a bit cooler and it rains a bit more than normal. Whatever the reason, I love Autumn and it. is. here. The first day of Autumn. And a new season means new releases! Here are some releases I’m really looking forward to. Cinema Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (premieres September) Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (premieres October – this!) Inferno (premieres October – and this!) Dr. Strange (premieres November) Fantastical…

Random 411: Things I’ve Learned

blog_lessonslearned

I love this blog. I love being able to be a book geek, a movie geek, a TV geek, an all around geek amongst like minded people. And since it’s a blog focused on entertainment (mostly), it is with a conscious effort I don’t let things get too serious and reserve deep thinking thoughts elsewhere. But I’ve learned a few things this past month or two. These things I learned? I wish someone would have told me sooner. I wish I could have learned this sooner. I wish a lot of things . . . sooner. Upon reflection of these things I learned, I decided that maybe it’s worth posting at least one post about the things I’ve learned. So, if you asked me a month or two ago “what is depression?” my knowledge of it was two main points: being persistently sad and it can be serious. It’s not…

I’m back!

At least I think I am. Part time anyways. I have to apologize for disappearing for the past month. I didn’t plan on such a long break. To be honest. Actually, I didn’t plan on taking a break at all, but some personal issues escalated and unexpected occupied most of my energy. At some point, I even considered stopping this altogether, but . . . well, I may explain later. So, for now, I’m back, at least part time to test the waters. Meaning I’m going to slow things down a bit until I get back in the groove. If you’re still out there, reading and have been patiently waiting, THANK YOU! Thank you for bearing with me. Hopefully, it won’t take too long to get back on my feet so I can get back to regularly posting. After all, I want to end this year with a BANG! and we’re…

To be continued . . .

This week has been just tad bit chaotic as I get reacquainted with my old position at work. It has been over a year and a half and while the transition was painless its busier environment has zapped quite a bit of energy from me. This leaves me having to choose whether to write or to read and I’m a couple of books behind so reading has won.  But the weekend is right around the corner which will allow me to catch my breath for a spell. Summer has been kind of a whirlwind and I’m hoping autumn will be more settled.
