Another month has passed, and I’m still trying to get my groove back. Somewhere back in February I lost it, and now March has passed – and I’m still a little lost. Let’s hope April brings a little clarity.
I’m starting to feel like there’s not enough life happening for me to post every Monday. I do things, I binge watch things (thanks, Netflix!), but it feels like I could be doing more. That being said, I won’t stop posting every week but I’m simply warning you that there’s not a lot happening right now.
Yes, it is Tuesday. Yes, I usually post Commercial Breaks on Monday but not this week. Partly because I totally overbooked myself on Monday and didn’t have time. Also because I didn’t have anything to write yesterday, but now I do!
Last week was another weird one for me. So it’s becoming evident that I’m not having the best time at the moment, and I’m graving for something special. Luckily, the universe has me covered! Sam Rockwell is an Oscar winner from this week forward – that’s my something special I’m starting this week with!
Last week, right after I launched my very own blog address (if you haven’t yet updated my blog address on your blogrolls, please do, it’s mettelray.com now!), I took a small break. Despite that, I still posted on Thursday, as I always do, and shared a very special post on Saturday. During that, I had flashbacks to my 1000th post and honestly, still my most craziest post I’ve ever done! Anyway, here are my thoughts from last week.
As many of you probably noticed, and what hopefully brought you here, was my latest post on my old blog-address. Yes, the title was a total clickbait moment but I don’t get many of those, so I hope you forgive me that one. In other words, welcome to my new home, my own little special corner of the Internet brought to you through sweat, tears and hours worth of “how to” articles: it’s been a blast! So even if there are some bugs I still need to fix, I hope you feel as welcomed here as you did over at mettelray.wordpress.com. So welcome, and enjoy!
Starting from today, I’m officially living my last year in my 20’s. Yes, I’m twenty fucking nine and I couldn’t be more scared. Sure, I’m still young and youthful, but I sometimes wonder back to that 16 year old me, who dreamt of a career I couldn’t be furthest from, and feel as if I’ve let her down. But that’s just the birthday-blues talking, and I’m almost used to it because I’ve had these feelings for the past few years now. So instead of actually feeling sorry for myself, here is today’s CB featuring a graph for m.brown because he does not know what a Sam-gasm is….
Last week, when I was back to work and had almost no time to prepare for this week’s post, I had a small panic in regards to the first Commercial Break of February. But then it hit me (thanks to Sofia’s monthly recap), that I could just look back at my very successful January, with all its 23 posts (a record of the last few years on this blog), and wrap it up nicely before I really kick my birthday month into gear.
Last week I took it a little easier in the Sam Rockwell front, because I just couldn’t handle more of him without loosing my mind. But I did end up watching three of his movies on Sunday, after I had finally finished three seasons of a show that I really liked. In other words, my second and last week (I can’t stay home longer, it’s unhealthy plus I need to interact with actual people) of sick leave was definitely less productive but it was still enjoyable.
Last week was weird, and by weird, I mean horrible and shit but wonderful at the same time. Lower back pain is no fun at all, and even while sitting and not moving much, it hurts and you are constantly feeling discomfort. Meanwhile though, I spent my days watching movies with Sam Rockwell, and doing some light-reading, so it was actually like an enjoyable discomfort..?
