So this is the awkward part...

Um, hi guys. It's been about 10 months. Turns out I'm not dead, in case anyone was wondering. My last post was back in November after Seasonal Spuffy. I guess in some ways that was the straw that broke the camel's back. There was a lot of angst tied up with the twp ficathons I had signed up for, my participation in fandom had been waining for some months, and I just had to take a break. A full work schedule wasn't very conducive for my writing and I haven't written anything since then. Ever since I graduated from schoo two years ago, I've been very engaged with work and socializing.
 
My new fandom, if you want to call it that, is Lady Gaga. I regularly stop by GagaDaily, her main fan forum, to read news, watch concert clips, etc. I don't really participate though. I'm back to lurker status and have never felt the urge to forge friendships or conversation with other fans as my interest in her is very personal and I never feel the need to justify or debate what she does. She has also sparked an interest in me to go and see live music again, so there's been a lot of concert going th last few months. 

There's also been travel, which will always be one of my greatest joys. In April and May I was in Paris, Barcelona and Mexico for a total of 3 weeks. This summer I also made it to Minneapolis to visit only_passenger  and spent a week in Cape Cod. I'm trying to get my finances together to take a two week trip to Australia in November/December.
 
I've been very into True Blood and just finished watching Season 2 a week ago, which prompted me to think of Buffy and the LJ community. The last two days I've been rereading some of my fics and feeling a bit nostalgic. Sometimes I miss writing and I certainly miss interacting with you all. Setting the time aside to engage though is difficult and not anything I can commit to. Regardless, I did want to stop by say hello and find out how you all are doing.
 
I might have some words left in me yet. I just need to find where they've gone off to.
