I promised you an update and you shall have an update. So, what's been going on with me these past mumblemumble years?

On the personal side, in short: same job, same apartment, still single, but hey, I have a dog now! (I KNOW. I was totally going to go for a couple of purrtastic kitties but I'm a hermit you guys, the last thing I needed was two more reasons to get out of the house even less.) There have also been some health developments, some good, some less so. I think I'll touch on all of that in more detail (and with puppy pictures because she is adorable) under f-lock (what's the right word for that on DW? gosh, I'm rusty). I've always been a little twitchy about posting personal stuff publicly, and at this point I don't think that's ever going to change.

Sort of in-between-ish, I recently got into bulletjournaling, and notebooks, and fountain pens, and different inks, and just, *twirls*. I have always had a thing for all things pen & paper but right now I'm really enjoying the hell out of it. I went from zero to a frankly stupid amount of fountain pens (did you know that you can get a Platinum Preppy for like, $4? damn, son!), and my desk is littered with ink samples. Oops?

Fannishly, things have calmed down a lot for me. I still consume a ton of media (tv shows, mostly) and enjoy chatting about them and occasionally I will brave Tumblr to look at all the pretty gifs and artworks, but I haven't felt like I'm in a fandom in a very long while. I do miss the excitement but I never quite got the hang of Tumblr and so I've been floating around, mostly enjoying whatever fic or artwork my Twitter timeline linked my way.

My fic and book reading have also declined dramatically, and I don't want to point fingers but that's totally mainly the puppy's fault. Who knew dogs ate up so much time, eh? The last book series I read (devoured, more like) was The Raven Cycle and it was so good. The next book I read will probably be a Dresden Files installment, whichever one came out as paperback last. (I always wait for the paperback.)

The puppy is also responsible for the drastic decline in gaming time. Will I ever finish The Witcher 3? I hope so, that game is amazing in so many ways. I need to know how Geralt's story ends, damn it! (ILY Geralt, don't leave me.)

The good thing about TV is that you can consume it while you do chores, and brush your dog's ridiculously high-maintenance fur, so the list of TV shows I watch continues to be way too long: 12 Monkeys, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, Emerald City, Fresh Off the Boat, Good Behavior, Imposters, Into The Badlands, iZombie, Killjoys, Lucifer, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Mary Kills People, Orphan Black, Preacher, Powerless, Riverdale, Sense8, Supergirl, Sweet/Vicious, Teen Wolf, The Catch, The Flash, The Librarians, The Magicians, The Originals, This Is Us, Timeless, and Wynonna Earp. Whew!

And then there are the Marvel movies of course. Damn you Marvel movies, you even got me excited for the next Thor. (How fun was that trailer? SO FUN.)

There, now you're all up to date. :)
