I have a problem.

In that I don’t think I can stop blogging. I don’t want to sound like a big hypocrite, but maybe going cold turkey wasn’t the best idea. As Chris said, my previous post was like the Cher farewell tour.

I couldn’t sleep last night as usual, and the only thing that calmed me down was blogging.

However, I NEED NEED NEED to get some resumes and cover letters out. To jobs in a career field that I am not even sure I want to be in.

I have no willpower.

Ok, here I am 24 hours later and I am kind of regretting my semi-retirement. Maybe going cold turkey isn’t always a good idea. I really really need to spend my time working on my life stuff. Let’s just say my posting will be a bit sparse in the coming weeks.

But seriously, this NEEDS to be posted. Dan Radcliffe is in a play where he has a sexual fixation on horses. The promo pics are out, and I am equally repelled from these pictures as I am fascinated. He’s 17, folks. It’s nice he is growing up well, and was luckier than some child stars i.e., Ben from Growing Pains. And he’s obviously been busy working out or something. Ginny Weasley is on to something.

I’m also not going to repost them here for fear of being arrested. Look at some HQ scans here and here.

How to Know When to Stop Blogging « Lorelle on WordPress

Reading the above post the other day realy got me thinking. Is it time for me to go? If I continued to post hot pics of celebs and albums every day, would that hurt anyone? Probably not. When I first started this blog, I had intended for it to be something to keep in touch with people and let them know what I was up to. My life turned out to be not as exciting/glamorous as I had imagined it to be, and I soon learned that blogging about all the drama at work was not a good idea. Then it morphed into me suggesting a lot of music and movies to people that had otherwise not heard of it. Then it sort of moved into something that I am not sure how to place. Mostly I would talk about things from pop culture that I was interested in. I always kept it light, but at times I wanted to post things of a more serious nature, and it seemed really half-assed on my part. I started throwing up links and saying things like “this is stoopid” and not really being able to express myself. This is not meant to make some serious political statement, but my love for pop culture is based on how it reflects the ills of society, and if I can’t fully articulate those ills, I feel I’m not being effective.

Posting on this blog has been a great outlet for me and an enjoyable way to spend my time, but it does take up time. I am at a point in my life where I really need to sit down and get my shit together. And that requires a serious focus. I need to spend time sending out resumes and setting up interviews, going over my finances and looking into retirement funds, continue to stay active and stay on my rigorous exercise regimen, and some general for-real thinking about what the hell I want out of my future. You know, adult stuff.

So I’m taking a break. I am not giving this up forever. Right now I am going to step away for a couple of weeks while I take care of some other things. After that break, I am going to try to restructure things. I’d like to have more focus for this blog, maybe something more interesting than vomiting pop culture and music into posts. I’d also like to seek a wider audience with this. Not that I don’t love the fact that a lot of close friends read this, but it would be cool to reach a wider audience.

And to my loyal readers and dear friends who have been reading every day, I thank you for indulging me in my slef-centeredness. If not having this updated for a while is really going to get you down, here are some places to go.

  • hotindieboyz: my other blog, which is self-explanatory. It’s the one where I perv out about guys in bands (at least more than I do on here).
  • my del.ic.ious page: this is where I store whatever I am reading, and it is updated several times a day and I will continue to do so.
  • My Multiply page: I will continue to post music here before they realize how illegal the site is. I love being able to introduce people to all types of music, so I will continue to keep that up.
  • Andrew’s page: Andrew has great taste in British music and is a much better writer than I am. His music tastes have come a long way. I remember when his collection consisted of Westlife and The Little Mermaid. Now he is like the expert of Britpop.
  • The Erin Q. Hammers Worship Page: to see updates between the Hollywood Feud between myself and Erin.
  • Be My Netflix Friend: this is even better than spying on someone in the shower. See all the embarassing stuff I rent!

Hopefully when I return I will have at least half of my life figured out.

In the meantime, fight the Seasonal Affective Disorder!
