I'm taking a break from fandom.  Admittedly, I've not been very engaged in these last years mostly due to RL commitments, but it feels like the right time to step back, or at least tell myself that I'm taking a break officially so I'm not feeling a weird sense of obligation to stay half-tuned into what's going on, which I've tried to do even though I've not been posting.  It saddens me a little that I'm not feeling up to keeping up with debates/discussion/meta, something I've so enjoyed in the past.  But I feel a sense of futility when I read wanky, cranky, ranty, accusatory meta and wonder how that's at all productive and enjoyable for me (however, it may be engaging and interesting for everyone else and that's awesome).  I'll still be watching SPN and posting at spnematography, but beyond that I'll be hibernating.  So this is me giving myself permission to sign off from the larger beast that is the SPN fandom for a while.  Maybe I'll catch some of you on the flip side if you're still around, too.  Take care of yourselves, flisties.  I'm hoping I'll eventually wander back, invigorated and bursting with stuff to say, but most of all loving SPN and fandom again.

Welcome to the club! Or... maybe not. It is not such a warm and fuzzy feeling.


The World Cup is coming up so you can join me in massive fangirl moments. And besides that I've greatly been enjoying non-large fandom things like Magnum PI and MST3K and organizing my desk multiple times. Miss meta though but I've been able to freestyle that a bit...

I feel like "the club" has been a growing with a lot of fandom members from early seasons joining. :( It's too bad bec. it's nice to have fandom members who remember the early days of squee.

So, how's the desk organizing going? My desk is a mess (the entire office, really). Maybe I need to take a page out of your book. :) I miss meta as well. Or maybe I just missing having something to analyze and fill up the void between my ears. Hope you enjoyed the World Cup (I know my reply is super late).
