Yesterday, I received an email from my domain registrar that the domain name for this blog is up for auto-renewal by May. That kinda jolted me and made me remember that I'm paying for this site and I haven't updated in months.
Well, as usual, the reason is just that I've been really busy. More so than usual. Last February, I moved to another country and until now I'm still adjusting. New people, new environment, new language, new customs and rules to adhere to - yes, still adjusting.
I've also started my new job and that's additional adjustment. Some of my job duties are way different from my previous job so I'm learning the basics. I'm just glad though that my co-workers are really nice and are helping me get through it.
Last March, I was so deeply engrossed in one fandom. Maybe you've seen the countdown on the top of my blog. It was special. Fans of the TV show waited years to get this movie and we even helped fund it. Yes, I'm a proud backer. The Veronica Mars movie premiered last March 14 and I spent weeks before that following the creator and the actors while they do promotions (interviews and stuff) for the movie. Once the movie premiered, I was still way too busy checking social media sites like Twitter and Tumblr and just sharing everything. From every piece of news to every appearance and reading every review. Not to mention losing sleep voting for every single voting poll out there that features Veronica Mars.
A few days after the movie was out, the first book of the Veronica Mars series came out. I was so excited for this and I ended up getting 4 versions of this book: paperback, kindle, playbook, and audiobook. It was also the first time I've read a book while simultaneously listening to the audiobook. It was kinda surreal to be honest. It was even made more special with the fact that it was Kristen Bell narrating the book. Veronica Mars herself.
Currently now, on the job front, I'm not that busy anymore. What's keeping me quite busy are the tons of TV shows I'm watching plus the books I'm reading plus keeping up with all the updates from Twitter plus Tumblr. But I do hope to post updates from time to time to keep this blog active. We'll see.
