So, life has been happening (as life tends to do), and since I have been a bit quiet here on the blog lately, I thought I would take a second to talk about what’s been going on.
I know I’ve been apologizing a lot lately for the lack of posts. This is something I desperately want to improve on. Since the new year, I feel like it’s become more difficult to pump out quality custom content because it feels like all of time has been evaporating in front of me. I do have a couple of posts in the old back pocket that are just waiting to be edited and posted, so don’t you worry!
As for what I’m doing over the next few months? Well, where do I even begin…
This weekend I get to see a dear friend of mine get married back in Phoenix (it’s my fellow Phoenix Geek Girl Brunch officer, Amanda, yayyyyy). It’s going to be a real quick trip, but I am SO excited.
The next weekend, Jeff’s family is driving to Orange County from Houston to spend a week with us. I’m VERY excited about this. Most of his family have never been to CA, so we plan on taking them to ALL the tourist spots while they are here.
The last weekend of March we will be hauling our booties over to Los Angeles for Wondercon. This will be my first time at this particular convention, so I am planning on having a really great time.
Early April is a very special time for me BECAUSE THAT’S WHEN MY BIRTHDAY IS!!! AHH!! To celebrate, I’ll be headed to Michigan to hang out with one of my closest friends, Chara, for a while. It’s also her birthday early April. I can not wait!
The rest of April is pretty quiet so far, but honestly, I’m into the idea of some recovery time. May is somewhat the same for now. I plan to get LOTS of blogging done, and do LOTS of work on my VERY FIRST COSPLAY of Mabel Pines. Also, sometime during those two months I think we are planning another Geek Girl Brunch event for Phoenix. No official details yet, but I do expect another trip to Phoenix at that time 🙂
June picks up again with Phoenix Comic Con happening the first weekend of the month. I always have a really great time at Phoenix Comic Con, especially with Janelle, and hopefully, this year will be just as awesome as ever. I have lots of blog posts about my past experiences. Some of those are here, here and here.
Next up for June is a camping trip. I’ve never been camping with Jeff, or with our friends Stu and Sofi, so I’m ready to haul our dogs and tents up the mountain for a few days 🙂
After that, all I have planned is voting (June 6 for Californians). This is a PSA– PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE REGISTERED TO VOTE IN YOUR STATE, ESPECIALLY YOU YOUNG PEOPLE. It’s important, regardless of party. Everyone needs to exercise their right to vote. Yayyyyy democracy!
Last up for my “immediate” plans is SAN DIEGO FREAKING COMIC CON. This is my first time going since 2001. While that was a magical year, full of Sarah Michelle Geller and Angelina Jolie, and small glimpses of the Lord of the Rings cast (am I dating myself yet?), I have a feeling that SDCC is a LOT different than what I remember these days. I mean, during that last trip, I met Stan Lee after waiting in line for about 10 minutes. Sooooo, yaaaaaaaa. Not sure I’ll be able to pull that off this time, but I am VERY excited.
I plan on reporting back after many of these experiences, so pay close attention to my events category. I promise I’ll try to be better about posting. This blog is super important to me, and I am going to work hard on treating it as such 🙂
Thanks for reading along! Happy 2016!
