It occurs to me that I haven't made any posts in two months, and a non-flocked personal post in even longer! Honestly, this is largely because I have been super-boring recently.
BUT JULES, WHEN HAS THAT EVER STOPPED YOU BEFORE? Good question! I think I've matured somewhat. I mean, not a LOT, but somewhat. Also, my schedule is just...not that ridiculous, really -- my work week is pretty normal, about 45 hours a week (and I get overtime \o/), but add another 2+ hours' commute each day, and I'm generally pretty drained by the time I get home. I've been going to the gym more, and now that the pools are open I'm jazzed about getting in some swim time after work. I learned last summer that even a handful of laps could make a huge difference to my post-work mood.
I am occasionally on Tumblr
but mostly I go check it every few weeks, fill up my queue, and then forget about it for another few weeks, because I like the pictures I find on Tumblr but so much about its functionality is annoying. My public Twitter is juleshastweets
, also, if you feel like chatting during the day, also! But really I have not felt particularly fannish about much of anything for awhile. Or rather...I hadn't
felt particularly fannish about much of anything for awhile.
YESSSSSSS. I am currently pretty deeply sunk in Mass Effect
. There are a couple of fics I'd like to write, even, but every time I think about writing fic I either get really exhausted (which is what happens to me w/r/t writing in general at the moment, and which is annoying and frustrating and I am trying to figure out a way to work through, because I am fully aware that my writing is not particularly special but it was really fun and satisfying for me and I do miss it) or I just end up deciding to play through again. THAT GAME THO. I seriously wasn't aware that I could still have
fannish feels like that. Not exaggerating, I have not felt this kind of visceral fannishness about something in years. I got spoiled for the ending of ME3 and was grateful for it because I legit had to stop playing for about a week to deal with my rage. It's just so great.
My current favorite thing is the Indoctrination Theory
, which is one of those things that I think is giving the text waaaaay too much credit but which I love anyway. It's like the Ron-is-Dumbledore theory. Y'all should share your favorite theories of that ilk with me, actually, where you know there's no way they're what's actually there in the text but they're so elegant and weird that you love them anyway and love that someone made the connections and came up with them. I just find them invariably delightful. I am not mocking here, I legit love shit like that and admire people who can think it through, because I do not generally have the patience for that kind of analysis. (Also the Indoctrination Theory DOES make more sense than the actual ending, so.)
N E WAY if there is anything you would like to hear me talk about in particular, as I make more of an effort to post here again, go ahead and let me know! I think there are a bunch of prompts from this meme
I still need to fill, also. /o\ Whatever, as long as I get them done within a year of getting the prompts, it counts, right? Right, good, glad we had this conversation.
