Peace Yo!

Happy New Year!

from me and my little friend


daughter was trying to school me in the fine art of selfie taking but I am not an apt pupil. your hand is too shaky, you’re not supposed to smile, quit looking at Thorin…so much to remember! she finally got fed up with me and took it herself. anyway, here’s to a fun filled 2015 ❤


I Must Bide

A new year is upon us, I’m approaching the 100th post on this blog, and my fan path category has come to an end as well; so many opportunities for new beginnings!

2014? yes, please!

When I first started this blog in May of this year, I jotted down a brief outline of the direction I wanted to go with it.

As things moved along and a certain tone had been established, the outline changed to accommodate.

*serious and introspective? not!*

In both versions the end was the day I started this blog.

I’ve had highs and lows with this blogging endeavor but all in all it’s been a rewarding experience that I’d like to continue. Fandom drama? not so much.

I’ve done some soul-searching these past few weeks regarding the various issues within the fandom and my reactions to them.

"should I stay or should I go?"
“should I stay or should I go?”

My conclusion: I’m not sure I’m cut out for Army life!

I would still like to read and “like” with abandon but I think I’ll try reverting back to my former lurking ways for awhile.


What will change on this blog in light of this? The posts will no longer be illustrating how I discovered Richard Armitage but rather those parts of the original outline that I might have skipped over, mixed in with more current happenings. so… pretty much the same randomness!

I’m excited for the year ahead and working towards that 200th post, I hope you’ll continue to join me for the ride.
