New Blog!

Greetings!

My new blog is finally up and running! There are still some page edits and such that need to happen before it’s as pretty as it should be, but I am officially back to blogging and shutting this one down. I won’t be posting here anymore.

To those of you who aren’t planning to switch over with me, thank you very much for the time you followed me. I hope you enjoyed my posts while you were here πŸ™‚

To those following me, thank you so much! πŸ˜€ I’m glad you decided to hang on for the rest of the ride πŸ˜›

The new blog is here:Β https://battlebrainandthesecondhandsword.wordpress.com/

Yes, it’s a very long name hah πŸ˜› I wanted something a little (Maybe a bit more than a little) different and fun, and I’m happy with it.

Hopefully talk to you soon, and thank you all again!

Falling off the face of the Earth (And subsequently crawling back on)

Greetings!

It has been over two months since my last post, and I’m truly sorry for that. I lost track of a lot of things over summer (Though summer was fantastic this year!), and this was certainly one of the first things to go.

I’ve been thinking a lot about this blog recently, which was part of the reason why I didn’t start posting again last month, and I do believe I’ve finally come to a decision.

This blog has been running for over four and a half years (Which is crazy to think about!), and it’s been a great experience for me. Some (most) old posts still make me cringe, but then again, who doesn’t have old work that does that to them? πŸ˜›

I haven’t thought of what day of the week I’ll be posting, or anything like that, but I decided that I think it’s time to move on. I’m going to be starting a fresh new blog, probably with a bit different content than this blog has had in the past (Though still talking about writing and projects and such, because that’s just fun πŸ˜‰ ). I’ll be putting another and final post on this blog pretty soon so anyone who wants to follow me can, and anyone who doesn’t will know when this blog is done.

I’m not really quitting blogging…I’m just freshening up the face of it all for myself πŸ™‚

Talk to you soon,

-Roo!

Quote of the Week #164

Greetings!

The quote for this week is:

“Rise and rise again, until lambs become lions.” ~ Inscription (Robin Hood, 2010)

This quote is found a lot of places in the movie, but the inscription on the side of the main sword of the movie is probably the most recognizable, so I went with that πŸ˜›

Such a good movie! πŸ˜€

Talk to you soon,

July Camp Nano

Greetings!

I absolutely love November Nanowrimo (As my posts at that time of year loudly reflect), but I’ve never made it more than a few days into either Camp Nanowrimo. Maybe it’s just that in April, finals are only a few weeks away, and in July, well…there’s either a lot going on or absolutely nothing at all, it seems.

My writing habits have fallen very much so by the wayside recently, and I would love to pick them up again. I was considering participating in July’s Camp Nano, but I’m home only about eight days total, so I’m pretty sure it’s a bad idea πŸ˜› Unfortunately, I think I need to sit out until November again this year. One of these days I’ll finish Camp!

Good luck in this last week and a half of prep time, all you campers! I believe in you! πŸ˜€

Talk to you soon,

-Roo!

Quote of the Week #163

Greetings!

The quote for this week is:

β€œStay hungry, stay young, stay foolish, stay curious, and above all, stay humble because just when you think you got all the answers, is the moment when some bitter twist of fate in the universe will remind you that you very much don’t.” Β ~ Tom Hiddleston

Busy breathing

Greetings!

I got to be a bridesmaid for a very good friend of mine, and while it was a lot of fun, it was also absolutely exhausting. The wedding was this past Saturday, and I’m still tired! πŸ˜› Luckily, she never turned into a bridezilla, so that was wonderful. Lots of fun and lots of work.

Yesterday, it kind of felt like a whirlwind of activity had all settled down into this odd stillness. It was strange, having something that I’ve been helping work on for months suddenly come and gone in one very (very, very…) long day. It all felt sort of quiet.

Having this weird day actually helped me identify a large problem I have, which was a nice side effect of it all. It was so tempting, yesterday and today both, to start shoving busy work in, that didn’t do much at all, but took up my time, which could have been devoted to friends who needed company or actually useful projects that would have taken a little more effort and given a lot more reward. I wanted instead to just mill about, doing my busy breathing and not getting anything useful done at all. Even a long nap would have been a better choice than that, I think.

Luckily, I was invited to join some friends in some nice relaxing and fun activities both days, and so I haven’t quite fallen back into that old trap. I certainly want to keep my eyes open and my efforts were they should be.

Hopefully, I’ll get some good stuff done this summer, and kick a nasty habit while I’m at it πŸ˜‰

Talk to you soon,

-Roo!
