Yep, that’s right. But I’m back! All I can say is every day, I wanted to write here. My only comfort was I was writing for work and liked seeing my stuff published even without a by-line. I don’t think I’ve ever written as many articles as I have until now. I’m just sorry I can’t link to those pages from my portfolio blog.
My articles list spreadsheet is looking better and better, though. The thing is, I’m not done collating my past works especially those from back in the day (okay, I feel so old now talking like that). So that portfolio blog still seems empty. It isn’t, not really. I will be doing some actual posting there, too, soon.
I did especially feel the pressure to blog last April when I knew other writer-bloggers had been participating in the A to Z Challenge. It was torture.
I knew long before that I couldn’t participate this year. I knew I wouldn’t have much time due to several factors, so I didn’t even try. Too bad ’cause I really enjoyed last year’s A to Z Challenge. My only problem then was Holy Week fell in April. It affected my personal writing schedule. Long story short, I skipped my L and M then was unable to do W to Z.
I came to a decision as early as last February: I am going to complete last year’s A to Z. I could’ve done it last April but thought it would not be fair to those participating this year. Even though I am no power blogger, I felt that that would still be like stealing attention from those who truly deserved it for the hard work they were putting in.
Now that April’s gone, however, May is going to be my writing pal. Next week, I’ll be posting for a week to make up for the missing letters. I think that’s fair enough, right? After all, the point is to write and be productive. Then maybe, I’ll go backwards and complete those I left in the years 2015 and 2014 in the next weeks or months. Nothing definite yet about that second plan.
That’s not my only announcement. I will be bringing back my #MonthlyRecaps. Early last year, I unintentionally suddenly stopped my recaps. That was very foolish. My new idea will take care of that. Each post is going to be like a two-in-one thing. What’s that? You’ll see. Also, I’ll continue my mini-TV reviews like Thrones, Faerie Tales, Serial Killers, Zombies and Science, Space, Elementary, my dear Lizzie. They were supposed to be a quarterly thing, but obviously, I’m way behind.
Frankly, I have various ideas I should get back to. You’ll know them when things actually “restart”. Right now, the other things that keep me interested are, as you probably have already guessed, watching TV series and playing Soda Crush (so sue me).
Just finished the latest seasons of Game of Thrones, The Good Place, and Once Upon A Time. Before that, I finished the first season of Star Trek: Discovery and all the seasons of NCIS that Netflix could offer in the meantime. So I’ll be waiting for quite awhile for all the new episodes to be available. I was watching Sherlock, but my access is temporarily interrupted *sigh*
Also, a few nights ago, I watched the series finale of Lost. I think I’m gonna do a longer review of it and of Dexter, but I’ll do something a bit different than the usual. I am currently only watching Season 2 of Big Bang Theory (serves as my backup show whenever I can’t watch others online) and just started with Grimm the other night. I did get to watch Charmed on iFlix, but they only have the first season and nothing else. Netflix doesn’t have it at all.
So you see, there’s really a lot for me to catch up on. Read me next time, alright? And share YOU, too!
So nice to hear you’ve been away writing and building up your writing portfolio. I feel you. Sometimes when I’m done with work in the day I rather come home and put my feet up as opposed to write a blog post. After all, blogging is hard work. Good to hear you wind down with your TV series. Hopefully there will be more seasons of Charmed for you to watch at some point. I loved watching that show growing up, and it’s a show that changed over the years and I feel that the first few seasons were the better ones. Big Bang Theory is always something I like to fall back on too 🙂

Well, the building-up-the-portfolio writing isn’t something I planned. But since it’s been suggested at work that I list down articles I’ve done even before my employment there, I thought I’d do something better and create the portfolio blog. It’s a bit of hard work, though, to try to find everything I wrote, particularly those that can’t be found online and I have no saved copy of.
I was watching CHARMED before, when it was running, but I only got to see a few episodes, esp. the ones with Cole in it. So I decided I’d re-acquaint myself with it and watch on iFlix. Unfortunately, it really just has the first season. I don’t think they’re putting up the next seasons at all. I also plan to watch the Filipino-inspired My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, but iFlix doesn’t have that. Netflix does. When I’m done with BBT, it’s gonna be HIMYM next. I did get to see the series finale — DISAPPOINTING.
