I’ve felt a disturbance in the force, I’ve awoken from my slumber. Guess who’s back fellow geeks! It is only me!
Wow. It must have been over a year since I wrote a proper blog. A lot has happened and real life got in the way of writing. Speaking of writing, something else I didn’t do for the past year. So why didn’t I post? Well, like I said, live got in the way, along with work and my etsy shop.
We had so much fun we are thinking about selling at Amsterdam Comic Con as well! I’m waiting to hear back from both Amsterdam Comic Con and German Comic Con because they spotted me and want me as a potential vendor.
I checked the last blog post I wrote and I am really ashamed to say it was the Jurassic World review in June 2015, so it’s been almost a year.
What happened? Well, I got my contract renewed at my new job. Don’t worry, I’m still a Social Worker, only for a different company now (and I’m waiting for my second renewal and permanent contract in a couple of months. Keep your fingers crossed please.)
Had a relationship, didn’t have a relationship. I am bound to end up as a geeky 80-year-old with 30 cats and a house filled with POP vinyl’s, Doctor Who merchandise, books and an awful lot of yarn.
Let’s see, I went to London and met Laurell K. Hamilton! Epic moment! Went to Cardiff, cried over Ianto’s memorial wall and flew the Tardis at the Doctor Who experience, also ate the most gruesome hotdogs in that American Diner in Cardiff which they used several times in Doctor Who. I tried to get into Torchwood Three but my Vortex Manipulator didn’t work, I suspect the Doctor…
Also went to Greece (Kos) and made new memories. I went to the same Island 10 years ago in between my grandparents dying so it was really sad 10 years ago. Now not so much and I rescued some kittens as well!
I cried over Doctor Who, I cried over Sherlock, I cried over Supernatural and why am I still watching those shows?
Read not as much books as I wanted but I really started to enjoy manga and anime.
I skipped nanowrimo last November because I was busy working on my holiday season orders and getting enough stock for Comic Con.
I loved the new Star Wars! But no so much Deadpool. I won’t be seeing the new Batman vs Superman due to bad reviews. Although I can’t wait until the new Captain America. (Team Iron Man whoop whoop!)
I had a pretty shitty holiday season myself due to my mum’s cat getting really sick and we had to put him down in the end.
I took pity to a stray cat in my back yard, for the people who follow me on Facebook, it’s been a long couple of weeks. But I did rename him Captain Jack Harkness. In the end he went to the animal shelter but before he could be adopted his owners picked him up, and just 3 days later he’s back in my back yard again.
I went to Dutch Comic Con, sold some of my work, made an appointment for my new tattoo, met the Hillywood sisters and bought epic stuff from Canvas Warriors (yay for them calling me a friend and remembering me from the previous two times I met them). Also got an epic photo op with Marnix again, the lovely and sweet Dutch actor who plays the Silence in Doctor Who and bought some cool merchandise.
And that’s how we ended up here. I am back to writing again, Camp Nano here I come! Back to blogging, updating my etsy shop, enjoying a couple of days off from work and life goes on.
So, until next time my epic geeks! Love, Mendy.
