I'm busy lately and purposely not posting so I can do away with the constant need to check my email and see if people have replied. I don't mean to alienate anyone, and most of you are probably used to this by now, but I have to say it anyway. I ♥ you all muchly.
So, here's the thing. Last year, after I finally started coming out of my two year long depression, I realized I'd really lost track of my health and fitness goals. I was doing really well getting back on track until I went and over-extended myself on writing commitments, and then I was back glued to my comp and stalking my inbox. I slacked off quite a bit, and have been feeling crap in general.
Now, I find myself over-extended again, but I absolutely refuse to let myself slide again. I can't honestly say if my depression is triggered by lack of exercise and physical activity or if it's the other way around, but I know that I always feel better about myself when I maintain a solid workout schedule.
So, anyway, I've been doing really well with that for the last three weeks or so, and I was all excited to post about it and share my success and inspiration with y'all, and then a certain bigbang fic was posted. The response to the fic made me feel like exercise and fitness were not safe topics to post about anymore, so I just haven't been posting. If I'm honest, I loved the story except for the part where Jensen is a loser who can't get his life together without Jared, and Jared's a total ray of sunshine who changes the world just by being in it. LOL. One of the fandom cliches that really makes me stop reading fic, I'll tell you. But hey, the story was from Jensen's POV, and I can sorta see where Jared had issues that Jensen just didn't see because, well, he was dealing with his own in an exceptionally self-deprecating manner. So, I actually loved the story. I'm sorry some people were hurt by it.
My options at this point seem to be, just shut up and do my thing without posting about any of it, and let you all sit and wait for the stories to pop up, since the only way I can maintain the workouts and the writing is to not post about fandom or anything else. Or make a filter for the stuff that might bother y'all and let you all choose your own destiny. So, here's the polly.
Leaving comments off until I can get a chance to answer my previous ones. You know you can always PM or email me. There's even a handy contact form on my profile page, providing that you have a flash player or don't have flash blocked.
*smooshes to all*
Erm, I just realized I forgot to make it so I'm the only one who can see the results. So, I'm turning comments on and leaving them screened in case you want to be off the filter and don't want anyone to know. Also, if you do not indicate one way or the other, I'll automatically leave you off.
