So I’ve taken another long leave of absence.
Man, I have no idea how all of you young people (who are, incidentally, even now ON MY LAWN) manage to handle school and social media, including Tumblr, at the same time. I went back to TAFE (that’s community college, basically, Americans) several weeks ago, and I have discovered several things in that time:
1. Apparently the same part of the brain that’s responsible for organizing and reblogging ten zillion Tumblr posts a day is responsible for even attempting to do schoolwork.
2. There’s this thing called Steam, and — get this — they sell you video games over the Internet. You don’t even have to leave your house. (It is a really good thing no one told me about these people sooner. It’s entirely possible my body would even now be fused with this desk and keyboard.) I’ve been spending all my spare time gaming — I do not care what anyone says, the entire Lego Star Wars franchise is the awesomest thing ever — since discovering Steam via my saintly wife, who has had to put up with me rediscovering Star Wars fandom (my very first fandom, incidentally — as in, from when I was four or five on) in the bargain.
3. Being sick sucks. Apparently you can learn you have diabetes and have the world’s worst flu in the same few weeks, which seems unfair. I honestly don’t think an illness has made me this miserable since the chicken pox when I was a little kid.
4. Damn, I really miss you guys. I’ll try to make a proper comeback soon.
WHAT TUMBLR USER DO U SHIP ME WITH
I’m not gonna lie here, elidyce, I kind of ship you with me.
…on the other hand, given that our tenth wedding anniversary is coming up in September — in almost exactly a month, in fact — I am guessing that seeing this will not surprise you.
