Apologies, Explanations, and Announcements

*peeks out from behind corner*

*waves sheepishly*

Remember me?

Yes.  Well.  This.

Naomi's Pinterest is the answer when you need pretty pictures for blog posts

So, I've been incommunicado for close to two months, haven't I?  Someday, I will learn how to not make elaborate promises/commitments on here when it's not technically within my power to guarantee I'll be able to follow through thereon.  Someday that'll happen.  (It just may take a little while ;))  Anyway, I obviously haven't written that review I was asking y'all about in my last post.  And to be honest, I don't know when I'll be able to start blogging/emailing more frequently.  I have several emails from several dear friends (you know who you are) languishing in my inbox, and I am so sorry that I haven't replied to them.  

Here's the thing.  Senior year kind of hit me out of nowhere.  Oh, it's not that I wasn't prepared to be a senior--that had been slowly sinking in all summer.  But I wasn't prepared for how much busier I would be.  Technically speaking, it's not actually that big of a difference from last year in terms of how many things I'm doing, but for whatever reason, I'm kind of scrambling for spare time.  Now, granted, it's always harder at the beginning of the school year, so hopefully things will start to iron themselves out, I'll get into a better schedule, etc.; but for now, I'm sorry to have to say that I really can't say when I'll be "around" again.  I really, really miss and think of each and every one of you--I miss posting and READING ALL OF YOUR POSTS! and commenting and squealing and such.  You all are such blessings to me <3

However, I'm very much hoping to be able to be slightly more involved over Christmas break, at least.  We shall see :)  In the meantime, I apologize again for how "out of it" I've been for so long!  Love you all lots <3 <3 <3

P.S.  Did you guys know that the new Magnificent Seven has come out?  At first, when I was watching the trailer, I was scared I was going to like it.  But then I read the reviews and Kids-in-Mind ratings and such, and I am now satisfied:  I think I shall find it just as appalling and inferior as I hope to :)  I have an idea for a review I could write whenever I actually get to see it, and I really hope I can do it sometime.  (I'm not trying to tear down your favorite movie if you've seen it and liked it, though, honest I'm not.  I haven't seen it yet, so I may still be prejudging it :)  It's just that the original Mag7 is one of my favorite Westerns, so…yeah.)  

P.P.S.  Here's a picture I found that really should not make me laugh as much as it does.  It's pretty bad.  But every time I look at it, the more I think about it, the more it makes me laugh :"D

(I'm sorry in advance.)
