april // i haven't done this in forever.7:51 PM
I'm still alive, fam.
Yes, yes, I know, there hasn't been a wrap-up in forever. There haven't been a lot of posts in forever, either. I am hoping to fix that in May. Maybe. Hopefully. Have faith in me, if you haven't left already. I love youuuu. (This'll be a short wrap-up, but that's okay.)
|my response to everything lately let's be real|
So here's a little bit of what went down, more or less:
Yahhhh you know how this went down. There were some posts. There were mostly no posts. No explanation there, just gonna be real with you. I'm still trying to re-find the spark that makes me want to blog, and I'm still trying to get back into the habit of posting regularly and thinking of things to post. There's a lot on my plate and I'm working on juggling it. I posted about Lemony Snicket, however, so that's the most important thing you'll need from me for the rest of my blogging career.
I re-read a good chunk of A Series of Unfortunate Events. Because I can, and because Lemony Snicket is my jam, and because I own them all now. SUE ME.
I read graphic novels that weren't Marvel comics! A medal for me.
I read some Star Wars books. I loved me some Star Wars books. Star Wars is my jam. I'm never going to recover from Star Wars. (Did I mention that Star Wars makes me endlessly happy.)
Somehow between podcast things and work and books and life and Netflix, I actually managed to pound out 50k vaguely-dieselpunk words just in time to finish Camp NaNoWriMo. It was a hard one. It was a horrible, wrist-hurting, headache-inducing, late-night-filled month of writing. Most of the time sitting down to drag out some sentences felt like pulling teeth, or gouging my eyes out with a spoon, or just watching Netflix instead of doing anything at all because that was much easier. I missed a lot of days, and caught up, and got behind again, and missed more days, and wrote 6k on the last day of the month to pull out a win an hour and a half before midnight. That's how you're supposed to do it, right?

Some very exciting news on this podcast coming soon, y'all. I am not alone in the project now and it's COMING SOON. IT'S GONNA BE LIT. Can guarantee. We're hard at work and making it happen over here, with lots of spacey awesomeness to come soon.
Legion. Technically I finished Legion, which I should have done last month, but I procrastinated watching the last one for reasons unknown. Suffice it to say...if you haven't seen Legion, or thought about seeing Legion on FX, you've made a horrible decision. It doesn't matter if you aren't into comics stuff or Marvel stuff normally; no comics knowledge required! It's a breathtaking, horrifying masterpiece of color and music and excellent writing. If you're looking for something that addresses mental illness in a way that's brutally honest and real, look no further. This show means a lot to me -- almost as much as the comics meant to me -- and I'm going to hug it forever and never recover, I'm sure.
|JUST ADMIRE THE PRETTIES AND THE COLORS AND THE SHARPNESS|
Luke Cage again, with the little bro. He's getting a proper education.
Alllll the shows.
As I blogged about this month in one of my few posts... April was the month of new music. I made a decision to listen to one new album every day AND I DID IT. BOOM. 30 NEW ALBUMS I'D NEVER HEARD BEFORE. (I'll be recapping the last 15 albums this week, too. Stay tuned for that fun stuff.)
|LOOK AT HOW PRETTY IT ISSSSS.|
If you want to hear some of the tunes I listened to this month...I picked one from each album and threw them into this 30-song playlist. Have fun with it.
Writing. All the writing. Also all the podcasting. As I said...exciting things happening and going down on that front, so stay tuned, frens. <3
I bought a car! A wonderful car And subsequently found out that the car doesn't work the way I need it to, and am now trying to sell that car. So I'm dealing with that. But that's okay. (Probably.) (*quiet weeping*)
Work work work work workin' hard. Still enjoying my job. Still making all the pasta. #funtimes
It's been a long month, I'm not gonna lie. It's been hard, and intense, and I'm ready to curl up and sleep. It feels like everything I've tried to do to adult has gone wrong lately, and that's discouraging, but I'm trying to keep going.
One step at a time over and over and over and over and over.
How did your month go, guys? What did you do? Update me on your livesssss.
