This blog was not abandoned, I promise you

Here’s what happened.

First, I got super busy with work and family and my brain just couldn’t quiet down enough for me to read. As a result, I’m way behind in my reading challenge but I still have hope that I’ll meet it.

Then came September, and with it a new inspiration to read. In the last month and half I finished probably 6 or 7 books, including American Gods and A Monster Calls, both I had put aside when I wasn’t being able to concentrate. I read a fantastic collection of science fiction short stories recommended by my friend Mike Drucker (you should definitely follow him on Twitter and listen to his podcasts) called Stories of Your Life And Others and gave up on a book I was really curious about because it was from an author I’ve read before and really enjoyed. To make it worse, a lot of people I know and admire on GoodReads love the book, but I just couldn’t get to it and just jumped to the last pages to see how it ended.

Anyway, as you can see I have a lot to review, and trust me, a lot I really loved and excited me and made me thing. The only problem right now is that I am not inspired to write. I’m actually surprised as how long this text actually is since it was supposed to be a simple ‘hello, I’m still alive and reading’ note.

The point is, the reviews will come. They may take a while, but they will come.

Meanwhile, keep reep reading and keep living! I send you love!

Once upon a time

Once upon a time there was this girl who never really fit in.

She had a large range of interests, but none of them shared by her peers.

She didn’t like the weather, she didn’t like the music from where she’s from. She was the odd human out.

Those were the days before the internet. Yeah, the dark days of civilization.

I think I wrote my first online blog in my twenties. I remember setting my first email – Hotmail! – when barely anyone knew or understood the internet.

I’d spend every free time I had using the computers of my college library – the only place I knew had internet connection. Then came the places you’d pay to use the internet – those were expensive but so worth it!.

Nobody understood my fascination with it, but it was my first real chance to reaching out to the world, and find out that I was not really alone, just misplaced. Like this guy here:
