To Be Continued…?

Hey all~

It’s been so many months since I posted last. I’m sure promises were made to post more or be more timely: but here is the skinny

I do love this blog, it got me through some roughh times and I discovered new things to enjoy. However, I’ve been struggling pretty badly with depression and anxiety. I don’t think I mentioned it in previous posts, but my older brother was murdered in the early months of 2016. I’ve been dealing with the emotion roller coaster of this aftermath. Paired with some financial struggles, my heart hasn’t been into putting the effort into reviews. I’ve hardly even kept my Twitter alive. I’ve been too stressed and depressed, probably insecure too, with my writing to properly post anything. As for going on YouTube, even when I finally do get a computer, I may delete the account all together. I’m just not sure if my heart is there to be creative anymore. 
So this is the deal. I’m not sure if I will be posting anymore on here. If I’ll keep reviewing my hobbies (honestly I haven’t read a book in months), and try to express my creative side. For now I’ll keep the blog up reply to comments and questions. Whether it stays up or not is unsure: I may take it down due to my failings to keep it going. 

Anyways, a bit rambly, but I wanted to be open with my few readers and more honest with myself. Thank you for sticking with me and allowing me to share my thoughts

Updates! {a rambling}

Hello beautiful people!

It’s been a while since I’ve just dropped a hello and updated what was going on the the blog and other projects. So here’s a little heads up for you all if you wanted to know.

The Blog

You may have noticed I have actually gotten a decent and regular posting schedule again. It’s every Monday, roughly around 10 AM (pst), which so far seems to be working out well. Alas I’d love to go back to posting twice a week, but with working full time M-F I only have a handful of free hours to also dedicate to my other projects and the rest of life. So for now it’ll stay on this schedule, with an occasional double weekly post if I have the time to do so! I know I’ve been doing a lot of game posts lately, so I’m hitting the library this week to try and find some novels to throw in here to for my book lovers.

Youtube

A few of you may have noticed a little post about a small video I posted on my Youtube Channel. In the past I’ve talked about doing a review channel to reach a different type of audience and to see if I can get more constructive feedback from viewers. I love this blog and community, but alas the feedback is almost non-existant which doesn’t help me grow and improve. Well it’s finally coming together! It took a lot longer than I would have liked to, but that’s no ones fault but my own. I kept waiting for ‘the right time’ and ‘the right equipment’ until finally I just jumped right in. At the moment, it only sports a few videos of short ‘Let’s Play’s’ of games on the PS4. Alas, my headset is not the best and therefore my speaking in those videos vs no speaking is about half and half. Next week I will have a new proper headset so that I can do these a lot better. Also starting next week (hopefully) I will begin filming reviews. What type of reviews? you may be asking? As much as I’d love to do visual reviews of all the genres I review on here, I decided it’s best to stick small and grow from there. So for now I’ll only be doing in depth reviews for games on the channel. I’ll also have a small section, much like I do here in Ramblings, for off base topics or breaking down my thoughts on related subjects. I’m still undecided if I shall continue to also do a full review or partial review on the Blog that then links to my Youtube channel, so we’ll have to see about that. I’ll still be posting once a week on the Blog though so don’t fret. I’ll just also be posting once a week on my channel (day of the week to be decided).

Writing

How long ago did I mention I was going to put together a short story collection and publish it? I can’t even remember at this point, it was shamefully that long ago! Well, again, I’ve kicked myself in the butt for not doing something about it because I was ‘waiting on better material’ and judging myself really hard on what I did have. Well no more! I actually have an editor for my short stores who will be working on them one at a time for me. She’s already working on one as we speak! Thus I’m finally putting this in the works, and when there is a significant update, such as I finished all rough drafts or moving on to the organizing of chapters, I’ll keep you posted! This will be an digital publishing only to begin with, but we’ll get to that more as it comes closer. I don’t have a schedule for this really, I just write in my few meager spare minutes at work and then at home in between things. This is on the lowest tier of my totem pole, but it’s still very important to me. No title for the book has been set yet either.

Other

Well there really isn’t much ‘other’ going on right now. I’m in the middle of moving, transferring to a new job, and trying to save up every penny I have to help purchase tools and support needed to further my creative projects. A big thank you to all you followers for sticking with me or just joining up! As always, please share your thoughts and opinions on any post that interests you! Have a quip about how to make the blog more user friendly, interesting, etc? Let me know that too! I’m always looking to grow and improve, and I can’t do that all alone. I need help from people like you who are interested in these topics to let me know if I should be doing something different or if I’m staying on the right track! If this Blog isn’t enough social media interaction with moi, then you can also find me at these other fabulous locations!

 

See you all in the next update, I have to finish writing the review for Monday!

November Update!

Soooooo…Fallout 4 came out and life kind of stopped. I’ve pretty much been playing that in my off time only. This the lack of updating what so ever!

I’ve come back down to earth a bit though and am working on new posts. Since FO4 is pretty much my PS4 jam right now I decided to download some popular phone games and five those a whirl. They’re accessible during breaks at work so I’ve been pretty consistent in playing them.

Keep an eye out for new posts! In return I’ll stop ignoring the rest of the world and be a regular blogger again~

New Posting Schedule

Just a quick update on the blog and such.

New posting schedule to fit my new job that has split days off (aren’t those the worst?) I’ll be posting every Wednesday and Saturday. Even if it isn’t a personal review, it may be promoting someone else’s work, some ramblings, or updates. I am going to stick with this though thanks to my handy reminder on my phone. I shall sacrifice sleep so that I may be posting regularly! I don’t know if anyone is really even reading these posts, but they make me happy, so that’s something at least to keep me going on with this.

Another little tidbit to throw in, if you do the Facebook thing, I made a page dedicated to this blog. It is a bit slow right now, but when I get regular posts out (and hopefully Youtube posts in the future-still holding out for that), it’ll be more interesting to look at.

As always, thank you for reading! Feel free to comment, like, share, you know all that good jazz.

I’m Back! (And Married!)

(that's me spraying whipped cream in my mouth after champagne drinking just post wedding. I was exhausted at this point!

Helllllllo! Long time no see! As the title says I am finally married and have a bit of breathing room. My new job and moving can be worked around so I can make regular posts again! Sadly video posts will have to wait due to issues with my laptop. I’ve decided to wait to do that till after our move.

However! I’ll be posting here on the blog once more and poking around twitter! There are a lot of back posts I have to get done, and as I write this there is a screen open with a schedule of postings to do. Before the nerdy things I’ll be doing a personal post about my experience being wed for the first time and all the advice I can give (with a few funny tales).

Hope to be writing more soon and interacting with wonderful people again.

Many thanks,

Mrs. Jabberwocky Warrior

Upcoming Wedding & Such

Sooooo…

Long time no post yes? I was getting into the groove again but it all fell apart when I realized how much work was left before my wedding. Yup, getting hitched on August 16th, and though we’re keeping it simple there is a lot going i to it (his family is huge). So that’s why I’ve been so absent because something had to go on the back burner.

After this big event I am also going to be in the process of moving! It seems I enjoy stress in my life haha. So it may be a bit yet till I’m up and running. My plan is to have a new post schedule set up working around me new job, my Youtube channel up and running (more on that when it comes), and being more active on twitter.

So that’s it! I’ll still reblog interesting posts from others and throw up some tweets here and there, so I haven’t vanished! Just hibernating a bit.

As always thanks for reading, please feel free to comment your thoughts and suggestions!

Some Quick Updates

Hello readers!

So just a few things:

I am still working on my new sleep schedule for my 4 pm to 12:30 am job. I don’t get any good internet connections in the building so writing then doesn’t work. I’m going to try to wake up a little early each day to do some blogging, or to mess with content to blog about.

In the next couple months my posts will probably slim down a lot. I’m getting married in mid August and the planning for that will take precedence. Fear not though for I shall not abandon my blog.

Forever ago I mentioned putting together a short story collection. That went to the wayside as I began working on a novel instead. So I am doing a lot of personal writing, I’m just awful at sticking to one project at a time.

My Twitter account will still be pretty active with updates, linking past posts, and news in the world of my review content. So keep an eye on that (and tell your friends!).

Lastly, after I’m hitched I am also moving. With this move I hope to have an actual desk and writing base which will make blogging easier. I will also begin setting up for a Youtube channel after my webcam and mic come in from Amazon. Fret not for I shall still post full content on the blog: I just like the idea of reaching out to people in different social medias. More on that as it develops.

Thanks for reading and as always for following! It’s summer here which means college students are gone and the city is much quieter! I shall enjoy the heat and avoid burning. Feel free to comment on any posts, and spread the word about how awesome I am! As a last note: if you feel the need to post suggestions or constructive critique please do so here or on my Twitter!

Pps. Check out my new icon (located in about me) that my sweet fiance made. I’m pretty exited about it.
