Sigh. A life unbalanced . . .

I've come to realize that I'm probably going to have an existential crisis about once a month. I'm not even certain how much, or how little, of an exaggeration that is. Simply put, every so often, I get that feeling like I missed a step on the road of life. Something is out of sync in my world, unfortunately, I never really get what that 'something' is, or why.

This feeling that there is something I should be doing, or some place I should be, overwhelms to the point that I feel numbed by it. I wish I could say it's nothing, and it will pass. And sometimes, I even convince myself of that, but then, a few weeks, or a few months later, the same feeling erupts all over again.

I think I overcome that feeling when I'm writing, I think I'm in balance when I'm crafting a story, but I don't know if that's really true, or if I'm merely distracting myself.

Anyone Who Doesn't Watch Teen Wolf . . . .

. . . . Seriously needs to.

Now, I know what some people are thinking: Omg, you watch that silly-ass show? You've gotta be kidding me. I thought the same thing, until I caved to the crazy fangirling of a dear friend of mine. As I watched the first few episodes, convinced I would hate it, and it would be this terrible, awful, awkward, cheesy thing, I found myself instead saying, "Oh, crap, this is actually pretty good."

For those still skeptical, here's the Season Three Trailer. Oh, and Dragon Age II players, yes, that is Gideon Emery, the guy who voices Fenris (everyone's favorite broody, kick-ass elf) in the show.

Season One & Two are both available on Netflix and On Demand (and I believe Hulu). Go, watch, now. You have 2 weeks to catch up before the season 3 premiere.

Double-sized season, did I mention? Unlike the first 2 seasons, 3 will be 24 episodes (this may or may not contain that 'half-season break' nonsense other shows seem to be adopting fr…

Somehow, the Powers that Be have declared that my words carry at least a little weight somewhere in the world, and I was asked by the lovely folks at Juniper Grove Book Solutions if I would participate in a Cover Reveal.

Charlaine Harris and the Dead Ever After mishap (Please read entry in its entirety before commenting, TY)

I feel the need to start this off by reminding people (as I've stated in previous posts, most notably, the one about 50 Shades of OMG, how can people read this?) that I don't make my statements to pick fights, rile up fans of the book/books in question, or otherwise troll. I say what I say because it's how I feel, and, like anyone else, sometimes I just need to get something off my chest. See, there's two positions in life in which you can say whatever you like- the first, being that you're 'somebody', so you have the confidence and place to say what you like, and hey, maybe someone will listen and take what you have to say to heart. The second, is being a 'nobody,' in which case, you have the freedom to say what you like, 'cause no one is really listening to you.

I have the ability to admit that I am the latter. A nobody, at the moment. So I can say what I like. I know you're probably thinking I'm about to turn into growling, snarling, …
