The funny thing about the new year is that it never feels any different. It's just moving from one day to the next like we do the other 364 days in a non-leap year. It will still take me at least three months to get the year right when I write down the date and by the time 2011 is over, I'll just have gotten used to it.
But some things are different. I'm different. I've had some major changes go on in my life both personal and not-so-personal. Things that have happened to me and decisions I have made, all changes.
Anyway, I didn't start this post to go all My So Called Life meets Gossip Girl on you. Moving on.
I am back to a better pace and will hope to be updating more regularly again. I cannot commit to a secure timeline for updating, because I'll just sabotage myself - it's a tragic trait of mine. However, three months without updating F&FS is unacceptable to me. So I will do my best to avoid that.
I have left SFFR. I'm putting this out there before rumors fly and bullshit starts walking. I left by choice. I left for me. Reviewing was no longer enjoyable for me. It got to the point where I felt pressure to review people and pressure to say the right things instead of just giving a review honest to my opinion. When something you enjoy becomes a chore, it's time to stop. I also no longer have the time to devote to it like I used to and half-assing things just isn't my way. Sandy and I are fine and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
I have a crazy idea stewing in my brain that I am hoping I can make work. When I get the kinks worked out, I will make it public and hope for the best.
In 2010, I am thankful for the friends I have made in the fandom. Those I have met in person, those that I tweet with, the ones I plan to meet, people I text all day and annoy to no end, my FB buddies, everyone! I am happy to have an outlet for my expression.
Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
