I’m almost ready to start writing again. I’ve been trapped in a drought for the past three or four months. It’s also been a depression. But I’ve slowly been climbing the hill and coming out of the desert. I’m going back to school in two weeks minus one day and looking forward to it immensely. I don’t know what the year has in store for me, but whatever it is, I believe it will be better than this summer. I’ve been getting back into Sailor Moon recently. I’m trying to create a Sailor Scout of my own to keep and maybe build a story around her. Wouldn’t that be the coolest thing in the world? To have my own little Sailor universe. I must think on that more soon. The proposed Fellowship of the Feet meeting has been a total failure. Only two people answered my email. I feel let down by the general Fellowship and am losing faith in my friendships with them. I mean, how hard can it be to hit the “reply” button and type something like: “Sorry, I can’t make it anytime next week. — Name”? It’s really discouraging and disheartening. On the upside, my near drop out has become null because the Fellowship has basically become null. Apparently. I don’t know what to think about the whole thing anymore.
