So a small update…

So…

 

I haven’t really been updating on my life. It’s not cause I don’t want too!

 

Life just has been busy as hell! I am lucky if I get a moment to sit down and not worry about if X is going to complicate Y, or if there is enough money to do XYZ. Or if I can get ABC to KYL in time to make sure BLH is done!

Life is kicking my ass.

Nothing bad is happening. It’s just been busy. Life has actually been.. good! We actually have adopted! Here is our sweet boy now:

We named him Ruce! It’s a long story how we got him, that I may write out in another blog post.

So while life is kicking my ass… I am going to force myself to sit down and do what I need for me. For me, that’s reading, writing and gaming. That’s one of the reasons why I started PokeJournal!

I really hope I stick with it. I really love the concept of it, and want to do more than just Pokémon White.

If this works out, I may venture off to other games. Who knows?

I am also gonna try to get back into book blogging on here again. SLOWLY. I miss it. I really do. I may cross post the blogs (and mark off that I am when I do).

The stuff on my rant/short story blog, Six of Crows is going to stay there for the most part. While I might cross post some in the future, it’s going to pretty much stay the same.

I know it’s weird having three blogs, but it makes sense for me.

I am weird about certain things.

I hope everyone has been doing well! I would love to know what is going on in your lives!

Anyways, this is it for now!

Reading and the girl.

Okay so it’s been…

Over a year since my last book review.

Over two since I was on hardcore blog mode.

This is not Bueno.

I do need to apologize. For some reason I just… haven’t been reading. Maybe it’s a side effect of depression? Not quite sure.

I keep trying to push myself to write and read, but nothing seems to stick. I am not quite sure what to do. I want to read. The desire is there; but the drive isn’t. I have even tried audiobooks. Nothing seems to push me to maybe 1, 4 books a year. I don’t understand it. I want to get out of this funk.

If anyone has any tips…?

Shower Thoughts Sundays #2 [3/22/15]

Shower Thoughts Sunday is just something I thought I would whip up to talk about different thought I have had about different things. Mostly the book community, but sometimes others. They will focus on one topic, but maybe diverge onto similar topic, but I will stay on the topic at hand.

Todays Topic:

reading slumps.

Ah, the reading slump. The old enemy. The one who comes around and decides to kick you in the face and say NOPE. NO READING FOR YOU, PUNK!

It’s almost like a living hell for readers. No matter what I try when I am in a slump, nothing works. I try, and try, and try to read and it’s just won’t work.download (1)

So, this ends up being me:

The best and worst thing that happens to me when this happens is our good ol’ friends Netflix and Hulu.While they can help you out of a slump, they sure as hell can keep you in one too. I recently watched Friends to completion, just finished watching the entire series of Fraiser, and am now on my way to working on That 70’s Show.

Do you know what it’s like to binge that many shows?! It looks kind of like this:

and then you are like:

So you run to your closest book, and a little later you are like:

a reading slump

It’s hard to get out of a slump, but one you do… and you find the perfect book…

And you just cling to it

and say over and over:

And you can finally read like normal:

That is… until the next slump.
