I’m back… again… after my unplanned hiatus. I took a lot longer than I planned but as the saying goes, life happens. I was struggling juggling both life and blogging, so obviously something had to give, and the Indoob unfortunately had to suffer.
So I apologize to the Indoobians whom may have felt abandoned for the few months I was gone. I certainly didn’t forget. A friend once said that if you have a blog, you should practically be in love with it. And trust me, the Indoob is definitely my main squeeze.
Now the $20 question (it’s all I can afford, if I were buying or giving the money away): where did I go? Or maybe more accurately, what was the big project I claimed to have been working on?
To make a long story short, I was working on a screenplay with a friend of mine. The story is still under wraps because I do plan on returning to it. (That answers the question if I finished it.) I kept running into walls. Not writer’s block. I’ve learned that there’s really no such thing. Sure, as a writer, I may stumble and have some trouble… but I won’t say that I’m blocked or anything. If I ever get stuck, I just come back to it later. Similar to what I’m doing with this screenplay. However, I could’ve easily picked up a second idea my friend floated over to me, but no. Like I said, life happened.
By life, I mean friends and summer and church events and school and just an assortment of things that undoubtedly would’ve been blog-worthy. And perhaps I shall revisit those moments in time at another time… but since I’ve been away, I had been considering how I’d revamp the Indoob with my return and all. I probably won’t change a lot… or maybe nothing at all… except new content of course.
I’ve been pretty immersed in the entertainment industry. Not really contributing, but observing and commenting. My Facebook and Twitter are highly active and were basically my means of staying connected. As much as I enjoy tweeting, 60% of the time I want to say a lot more than what 140 can hold. So I knew I had to return to my beloved soon.
I also haven’t forgotten my plans to possibly move into making podcasts. There really isn’t anything that’s stopping me with that one since I have everything I need now. I can even make myself a theme song or two!
And I did mention school; I’m back at Middlesex Community College with a goal to work on getting a web design certificate. Although, in retrospect, next semester I may also continue with broadcast communication where I left off a couple years ago. Kitten is also in school and I found myself somewhat tutoring her or helping her with her papers she writes for her classes. She’s going for early childhood education. She’s also taking a psych class. I’m learning so much about both that I think I should get some honorary credits. Or maybe I should just take those classes next year and breeze through them. Yeah, I doubt that. Although I may need to take psych… I don’t know why though. And I don’t really want to. The one class I have this semester is Intro to Digital Arts with a pretty awesome teacher that reminds me a lot of Rob Paulsen. This is a good thing. With a three hour class, I need be somewhat mildly entertained to stay awake. The class isn’t boring, just long. And there’s just something about staring at a screen in a dark room for a period of time a couple hours before bedtime that just makes you want to make that keyboard a makeshift pillow. But I’m learning stuff and it will surely all come in handy. Some of it already has. And getting trial versions of some decent software I can use later in life for sure.
Now you know a little more about why I’ve been away. If I can help it, I won’t stay away for too long again. As always, you can follow me on Twitter or be a friend of mine on Facebook. (Be sure to tell me Indoob sent you.) 9 times out of 10, whatever you read from me on Facebook, is what’s on Twitter.
So stay tuned for opinion pieces about movies, TV shows, news and of course, food and the places to get them. Hopefully I will also be a little more liberal with some pictures. Either my own or borrowed. We’ll see.
I’m back Indoobians!
I’m so glad you’re back! Sounds like you’ve been busy. I hope you keep up your studies. A college education is priceless.
The education and experience is priceless but tuition is expensive.
