Surprise of the New Year!

Whaaaaat? I'm back? I know that it's been a while since I posted here — at least in a substantial way.

Tell me, tell me. How's your 2018 going so far? While you tell me all about it, I'll go ahead and tell you all about my goals and plans for GDR.

So, 2017 was a wild shitshow. Since I ended up moving early in the year between two cities, I lost a lot of my momentum. At my new residence, there was a lot of second guessing and loss of focus, so whatever I had planned for the blog and a lot of my creative projects went down the drain. However, I ended 2017 moving into my own apartment. So, here's to a beacon of creativity!

Tech updates:

- My Macbook went through an almost endless cycle of breaking and fixing itself. Right now, it's currently out of commission. The part that needs to be fixed, however, isn't nearly as costly as I thought it was going to be. But because it is down, I won't be able to update the REC·COMIC·DATIONS series until I have everything I need to power it forward.

- I do have a replacement / loaner computer. It, however, lags a bit and doesn't play too well with certain activities. So, certain aspects of the blogs - like movie reviews with detailed screenshots - might not be a thing for a little while. Fingers crossed, everyone!

Blog thoughts and updates:

I've been reviewing a lot of Götterdämmerung's content lately. And trust me, I'm in love with a lot of the content I've been producing and more importantly how I've been producing it. However, there are a number of key things that I want to change here. I'm still mulling over the details; I've so many damn irons in the fire, but I'm incredibly focused. I want to shower this blog with a lot of love. In my own way, of course. I'm not really one whose known for expressing love, really.

Since I've been out of the game for a while, I need to get back into the rhythm of things. I'm going to be peaking into different blogs that I've lost touch with and try to make a list of all the things I want to write about. There's an event that I'm excited to talk with you about, but it's months behind schedule. God, it's going to be a year in a couple of months. Time really does pass by quickly; it's maddening.

I'm hoping that I'll have more things to show you in the coming months. I don't know if I'll be back to the buzz of activity I had when I first started this blog, but I'm damn willing to try.

Welcome back, and looking forward to spending 2018 with all of you.
