And I’m valiantly fighting the urge to start singing Next to Normal.
Anywho, it’s been MONTHS since I’ve used this blog properly. School and responsibilities got the better of me…plus I was killing a lot of my free time on my roleplay blog.
Things with The Boston Whovians have gotten more “legitimate” than ever, there are almost 700 of us now, we’re having meetups every month, I’m finally delegating and letting people help me out, and we’re planning big things for the future.
I’m writing and am actually an editor for a new blog about ladies in nerd culture called Feminerdity, so that’s been taking up some time too. (Though not as much as it probably should…) It’s even getting me press passes to cons, like Anime Boston this past weekend…so that’s pretty damn awesome. It’s almost like I’m becoming a real writer.
On top of all that my headspace, while not as bad as it was back in September and October, is certainly not 100% great. Plus, I’ve been grappling with a lot of feelings regarding relationships and sexuality and where I stand in all of that. (For the record, I’ve started identifying as queer, if a label is required of me.) I’m also coming to a point in my life where I realize that I have to actually deal with my issues for what they are, rather than hide in obsessions…I’m getting there, slowly but surely. I’ll be a functioning adult yet.
Basically, in the last nearly-a-year that I haven’t been on Tumblr much, a lot has changed…but really a lot has stayed the same. I’m still as nerdy as they come…but I’m also thinking a lot more independently than I used to. I’d like to think I’ve moved on to something like “fangirling with a purpose”, and I hope this blog will come to reflect that a little and be more than just a place where I keysmash and waste too much time.
….that being said….I missed everyone a lot. I hope you’re all well!
