That entry I was working on? One of the two other planned entries and a third unplanned one brought on by recent events? They are/were all varying degrees of negative in subject, tone, nature, etc.; the full plan was to write and post those ones, then post the one on my recent "major distraction", get back to documenting my big Disney trip (I've actually only shared half of it, you know), and share a few other events from this year so as to have a string of positives after all the negative. But for whatever reason, I just couldn't bring myself to write the negative posts. The words just wouldn't come no matter how I tried. Maybe it's because I'm dealing with combined pre-Otakon and pre-DragonCon stress again? (I know I skipped the last two Otakons, but I'd already planned to be there for its last Baltimore hurrah and honestly didn't realize the dates when I bought my badge within their "first 5000" or whatever it was window.)
In any case, there are a few things one might think I'm excited for/about, but I'm not, and it's actually not so simple as that, hence the would-be (negative) posts. They are not scrapped entirely, but it will be a while (if ever) before I can bring myself to write them. Also, you know how I feel about most major socio-political discussion and I don't care that it is an election year. And I like my plain ol' texting phone that does little else and my four-year-old 3DS, not to mention have had minimal interest in a certain franchise since about the time its first heyday back in the late '90s/early 2000s ended, so you won't be hearing about a certain suddenly popular mobile game here except for this acknowledgement of its existence.
Instead, I'm going to cut to the chase. My next entry (or entires as the case may be, depending on if the first one ends up being long enough to need breaking up into smaller ones) will indeed be about the "major distraction" because really I'd rather talk about that than anything. After that? Probably finish up my Disney trip report however many more entries that ends up being. Anything else, postive or negative, I'll just see what happens with time, motivation, and whatnot.
