So About That Accidental Hiatus I've Been On...

Sorry to burst your bubble, but I was not on the run from a bunch of mobsters : )

So about this little hiatus that I’ve been on; I really didn’t mean to go on one. I thought I would get back into the swing of things over winter break, especially since I didn’t go back to work. I had all this free time and as usual, did pretty much nothing with it. It’s hard to believe I’ve gone two months without posting a single thing! To make up for my slackeritis, I’ll fill you in on what’s been going on.

Let’s see, well I celebrated my 21st birthday on December 21st. It was fun, not crazy since many of my friends are still underage. With Christmas came one of the worst blizzards I’ve seen in a long time. There was a snow drift in my backyard that was about seven feet high! New Year’s Eve was pretty much a bust. It was bitterly cold and I spent most of the night relaying messages between my best friend and her boyfriend who were in a huge fight. Not a great way to start the New Year.

I also submitted several poems to my college’s literary magazine. I’m really hoping at least one gets accepted. My mom has been hassling me for years to get some of my work published and I finally got up the courage to try. I also started writing two stories which I hope will eventually turn into novels. I work on them whenever I have free time so that is probably where all of my usual blog writing time has disappeared to. I’m also in the midst of trying to find an apartment or house for next year. It is definitely not easy to find something moderately priced, near campus, and does not look like the usual disgusting old college place.

I’m sorry none of this really has anything to do with classic movies. I’ve gotten into a bit of a rut. Any suggestions as to a movie that might help reawaken my movie passion? I promise I’ll try to post a little more instead of letting whole months go by. Hope all of you are doing well!
