Quarantine Media Consumption

Hello, my dears! This is going to be a short entry, but I'd love to start conversations with anyone who's seen any of the shows I've watched in quarantine!   I don't know if they have enough interest to justify an entire thread in Other Fandoms, so I thought I'd just put them here and await your replies! Of course, I also highly recommend any and all of these! To preface: I didn't watch much anime growing up (mostly just Sailor Moon since it was on Cartoon Network—and I 100% acknowledge tha

The End of My Six-Month Hiatus

I'M BACK. Hello, HPFT! I've missed you so much! So, for those of you who may not remember (because, tbh, I barely remember yesterday, let alone last fall): I went on hiatus about six months ago to finish getting ready for my wedding. I'd fully intended to be back in November...but then life happened. So, a brief rundown of the last six months of my life: Personal Life So, as mentioned, I got married in October! It was a lovely day, and my husband and I were so happy to be s

Tagging In, Tapping Out

It's been a rough couple of months, HPFT. I'm sorry I haven't kept up with my blog here. It's likely seemed as if I dropped off the face of the earth a bit...which is sort of true, I suppose. So, we'll talk personal life then writing life (to try to keep this somewhat fandom-related, rather than just a general rant).   Personal life has been a mess. It's now been six months since we moved to our new home city, and I still don't have a full-time job. I'm still freelancing, but I really

Happy 2019, HPFT!

2018 has finally drifted to a close, and here we are at the beginning of January. Can you believe it? (I can't.) December absolutely flew by. I honestly feel like it just began, but it's actually already over! In the last four weeks, I've been traveling a lot to visit family, continuing the ever-stressful job search, moving forward with wedding planning, and juggling a ton of other life things. I've promised myself (again and again) to get to writing, but haven't done it. Same goes for read

October, November, and Damn...the Year is Ending?

I didn't get around to posting my blog for October, so this one gets to cover two months...which may actually be a good thing. To be honest, I don't remember much of October. It was a month of trying to settle into our new home here in New York. It was a month of adjustments and changes and a lot of sleep for me—I deal with stress and anxiety by hibernating. November was both better and worse. It was incredibly stressful: my fiancé and I did a ton of wedding planning; I started applyin

September, I Love You

Were I to live in an endless September... September has always been my favorite month. It signals the end of summer and the beginning of fall—my favorite season. The weather cools down, leaves start to turn, and there's this transitional feeling in the air that I love more than anything. But this September felt somewhat different. It was a busy one for me, and those "transitions" I mentioned felt more monumental than in years past. I finished my stay in Florida—the best summer I've eve

Two More Down, Four to Go

Hello again, friends! So, I missed blogging last month because I was on a road trip with little to no reliable internet connection. But I'm back now with all of the news from the last two months, and some hopes for the future. Thank you all for your patience with me this summer! I know I haven't been as consistent as I usually am, but I promise I do love HPFT and you! ? So, let's see...let's start with July: It was a long month, but a good one. I saw a lot of family throughout it,

So Many Endings, and a Beginning Far on the Horizon

So, June was the hardest month I've had this year. Welcome back to my blog, and strap in, friends, because this one is going to get emotional.   The beginning of the month was pretty good. I went to two different weddings, in New Mexico and Puerto Rico, and they were both wonderful. I spent time with friends and relaxed a bit since my job ended at the end of May. Then the second half of the month came, and with it all of the emotions of packing up our home and getting ready to mov

May We Make It Through the Summer

Somehow it's the end of May, and I made it through another month. Welcome back to my ramble-blog! May was very long in some aspects, and in others it flew by. I was very busy—what with a conference I attended, then a visit from one my sisters, then a ton of family in town for my partner's graduation from law school...I'm exhausted. I don't feel like I've slept well literally in weeks. The bad news is the aforementioned exhaustion, busyness, stress, and some really bad anxiety mid-month

Aprollll with the Punches

Um. 2018 is one third over. Whaaaaaat? I am completely thrown. To say that April flew by would be an absolute understatement. I know I say every month that it feels like the last month went by quickly, but I really do mean it this time! I didn't even make monthly goals in my bullet journal, and now the month has ended! I can't believe that. And, I suppose, it's time to admit that I didn't come remotely close to the one vague goal that I did have of participating in Camp NaNo and e

How is 2018 a Quarter Over?

It's been another month and I've still barely written anything in 2018. But hey, this month was a crazy one, so I'll pretend it's okay. On the first of March, the bookstore where I worked had a small fire...and then the sprinklers went off and flooded the store. For a couple of weeks, I worked alongside the rest of the staff to clean and begin repairs, but then most of us were laid off. I miss it a lot, despite understanding why they couldn't keep us on, and finances are now tighter than th

A Difficult Month

February was a really hard month, to be honest. My anxiety was higher during the second half of this month than it has been since last fall, which is really frustrating. I worked around 50 hours and between six and seven days a week. I didn't get enough sleep. Without boring you with details, there were a lot of factors contributing to this being a not-great 28 days. At the same time, February went by really quickly. I can't believe it's almost March. The older I get, the less I seem to liv

New Year, High Hopes

So it seems that I'll be blogging at the end of each month (except December, which I inadvertently missed). Welcome back! It's a new year, and I'm really hoping that it will be a good one. January was rough. Things were busy and stressful: work, family illnesses, exhaustion, and general chaos kept me running. I didn't sleep enough. I didn't complete some of my start-of-the-year goals. But I'm still here and still plugging away. I have a lot of resolutions for 2018. I want to learn to c

So I'm Going to Lose NaNo...

Hello everyone! Happy end-of-November! I'm about to lose NaNoWriMo! . . . . And that is absolutely, 100%, this-isn't-sarcastic, okay!   Really! I'm about to lose NaNo, and I'm completely fine with it! I have accomplished so much this month! I've written for this first time in years. I've begun a new novel, the sequel to Collateral, that I've been wanting to write for a long, long time. I've planned out the majority of that novel.

Learning to Write Again

I'm out of practice. I haven't really written something substantial in years. And I don't really know how to start up again.   In terms of fanfiction, in 2014, I finished Rule Breaker (soon to be renamed Collateral and posted on HPFT). It was a project five years in the making, and I absolutely loved writing it. After that, though, I wrote very little. In 2015, I posted two one-shots and two chapters of what was meant to be a novel until I lost interest. Since then, I've writ

Beginning the Transition

Hello HPFT friends! I can't believe I'm really here! I've been active again for a couple of weeks now, and so far, it's been great. I've been a part of the HP-fandom community since 2006, and I definitely missed the HPFF forums when they shut down. Now that I'm active again on HPFT, I'm excited to begin really transitioning to this site! Part of that has been changing my username and creating an HPFT archive account. The next step is transferring my HPFF stories over to HPFT and getting bac
