I recently got a notification from WordPress that my subscription and domain were renewed and I was like, “huh?” and would you believe it, it was. So, now that I’ve paid for this thing, I’m like, I might as well use it — even if people won’t read it. Maybe it will be a therapeutic relief for me of sorts (which would be highly welcomed) or maybe it will be one of the many things that I attempt to see through but then don’t, but then revisit and attempt again. Hey, at least I’m being honest.
Maybe this will be my place of honesty. My little “safe space” as the young people ‘dem call it.
Man, this feels so old. Like, who still writes on blogs anymore. Is this still a thing? Do people read anymore? I don’t know. I’ve fallen into that void of hating social media but voluntarily succumbing to it at the slowest rate possible. Like, I was kicking and screaming when I finally got on TikTok… but then I found the algorithm I could ride on and I’m not too mad at it.
Anyway, I don’t know what this place will be, but I hope to return to it frequently enough that it makes up for time lost, money spent, and all the eyes who haven’t read my world of crazy.
At some point, I think I might use this as a place to unpack and purge, but for right now, let’s just say, “New Year.”
Disclaimer: As I’ve written before, the following post is a part of a larger series geared to air out more or less, ‘adult’ grievances and flush out underlying (as well as obvious) themes that I’ve found while watching these childhood movies over again.
*Please Note: I do not ‘blame’ Disney for any of my findings, as these are films based on very old fairy tales. However, as Disney has animated a vast percentage of these ancient tales, I will continue to say ‘Disney’ for continuity. *
*Also, not all cartoons animations of childhood fairy tales were the brain child of Disney, so I will attribute the production companies accordingly.*
It’s been years, y’all. But don’t think I forgot about this. And for our return to scratching our heads, let’s look at one of Disney’s messiest films, Sleeping Beauty.
May the strings make you smile, May they always remind you of me
When others merely had one song (maybe two), he had an entire playlist. Dozens of songs that made him come to mind, make him hard to forget. With each change of tempo, each inflection of tone, chord progression, whisper, or guttural groan.
I’m not sure if I truly understand the ways of man… Or maybe of those without mended wounds.
I wanted to turn me into an “us”, if just for a brief moment where we could explore our lust or shared desires. But at the time that was ours, the interlude was over before it could ever begin, so I think were we ever supposed to be a thing?
Maybe we were best suited for our roles before the whole ordeal — two people so wrapped up in our heads that only others like ourselves could possibly comprehend the many voices which live within.
And even after our “never been” came to an end, I still wanted for us to be friends. But the distance that always existed only persisted and it was as though we once again lived on the same planet but in different universes.
I get it — women tend to be difficult to read, but I was a book with the pages willfully exposed, waiting for a reader to bring each chapter to a close. And though our possibility has been tossed into the category of ‘what could’ve been,” I’d still like to know within you lies a friend.
It’s been a minute since I stepped into this Nerd Girl Corner and for this, I truly apologize to you all to leave you with no warning. That was truly rude of me. And to make my blasphemous actions even worse, I haven’t been keeping up with the likes of entertainment as I did in the past! Yiiiikes.
But much like this blog, I’m slowly making my way back to all things that gave me joy — like nerding out over all kinds of nerdy pop culture shit, so let’s do it! And I’ve got the perfect stuff to start with…
Could it be? Have ah truly returned to this here ol’ blog thingy-ma-jiggy? I reckon’ I have, babe!
It’s officially been overfour years since I last shared some words with the world on this here site. Four years, y’all. If it was a child, it would be able to tell you that it wanted to have Chic-Fil-A for lunch and let everyone on the line know that you were wearing a wig. That’s how long it’s been.
I’m back again with some nerdy news. I’m certain you guys already heard it because I meant to write some of this stuff as soon as it came out, but life happened in the form of sickness after sickness after sickness and your girl wasn’there for the shenanigans.
But guess what, I’m still gonna share it. Why? Because, why not. Also, I’m kind of in my feelings (or lack thereof) when it comes to some of it. So, if you’ll indulge me a little, let’s get the ball a’rollin’…
This whole attempting to be consistent things is a lot harder than I thought, huh? I promise I’ve been thinking of writing to you all, but your girl has been so ACTIVE these days, it’s cray cray. However, I do have some juicy tidbits to share — if you’re interested. Come on, you know you want to…
I must begin this post by expressing my sincerest apologies for breaking my promise to double up on my post after breaking my promise to be more consistent. I left you guys for a whole month — and during San Diego Comic Con, too! I am ashamed of myself.
BUT, I am back. All (or most) of the distractions which kept me from you are (somewhat) behind me now and I’ve come bringing gifts, including some exclusive SDCC tidbits you probably didn’t even know about. Oh, and some pretty distressing news.
