The new year is here, and I wish everything felt shiny and new. On a personal level, I do have a refreshed outlook, and a newly-tapped sense of determination not to let the bastards grind me down. Pardon the language if you will, but I suspect it’s understandable. Anyway! This is about good things that got done, isn’t it? So let’s talk about the joy I found in January.
The hard work is done, and I’ve got a few days to breathe, relax, eat lots of food and enjoy myself. So naturally I’m back on the blog, to take a bit of time to look back over the year that was and remember fondly the best parts. Do join me!
December is here. It’s the darkest month, and also my busiest IRL. Thanks, postal service job. But! Before I take that deep dive into overtime, let’s recap what was a really awesome November AKA SciFi Month, and look at what might possibly help me get through the month ahead with my sanity intact…

So the weather’s gotten abominably warm, to the point where I’m hydrating more than I’ve ever hydrated before. On the plus side, I’m on a wonderful streak of reading amazing books, and with August on the doorstep, Worldcon is that much closer! Let’s look at what July got done, and take a look ahead at some fun things coming soon!
… Because it has been pretty damn hot around these very Scottish parts lately. Like, really. What is going on. Anyway! June was a month. Let’s recap it, shall we?
It is May 31st, and I’m wondering where the heck the month went. I mean, I do that a lot anyway – but this month was particularly whirlwind-ish. But it was a lot of fun and I’m a little sad that it’s over! Let’s look back at what got done.
