Yes, I’m still alive, and with a little over a week until we check out of Los Angeles, I still have plenty to do. Especially since the house we were going to rent fell through, so we currently don’t have a place to live. Stress levels are sort of high at the moment. And we’re still looking for new jobs, but that has taken a back burner as we need living accommodations first. It’s sort of a catch-22; need the job to obtain the rental, need the rental to obtain the job. Blah, blah, blah. I’m not going to ramble much on this topic, because well, what’s the point…and really, what else needs to be said? Except that nobody ever really warns you about the chaos of adulthood.
While we’ve been packing up we’ve been watching lots of movies and television via Netflix and the Redbox, so I’ll have some reviews for you shortly that include Only Lovers Left Alive (oh, Hiddles), 300: Rise of an Empire, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier (both characters are the newest additions to my list of favorite things ever) among others.
As for writing, that’s just not happening. I can’t. And I really miss it. The split focus leaves little access to the imagination, so other than just letting stories percolate, nothing else is going on upstairs. I haven’t even read anything, well nothing beyond rental adverts and such. Again, I apologize for being so absent. I promise I will start reading your posts and liking and commenting again soon!
This sounds a little redundant to one of my last posts, but truly nothing is any different because I haven’t been able to change anything (yet), and as you all know, I like to be in control. And I like my routine. I suppose this is more of a journal entry, a reminder for later.
I’m going to attend my writer’s group tomorrow night to say farewell and maybe release the pressure cooker of creativity that’s currently taken residence, and then I have a concert of one of my favorite bands, Within Temptation, on Friday night – a good way to bookend our time here.
I hope you are all well, continuing on your paths, working with passion, and doing great things!
Give me a couple more weeks, then I’ll be back with a vengeance! 😉
Take care everyone!
