For 2012

I cannot believe it is the year 2012. I know it seems cliche, but where has time gone?

I actually started this blog in 2010, and what a shoddy job I have done of it. I had this brilliant idea and simply haven’t followed through. Life got in the way.

I think the problem was that I was so focused on my movie/book comparison, that I didn’t leave room for anything else. Do you know how many books are made into movies? TONS. LOADS. I became overwhelmed by the idea that when I realized a book had been made into a movie, I was compelled to see and read both. Even if the idea or plot did not appeal to me. And then when it got to writing it, I felt uninspired. I’ve decided that I want to change that. I want this blog to be not just reviews, but even thoughts, ideas, and opinions on all books, movies, or anything that simply speaks to me.

I’ve also decided that I am going to read more classic books that I missed in school, and reread some classics that I’ve neglected. I even started “A Tale of Two Cities” by Charles Dickens. Granted, I’m on page 2 but I’m working on it.

I also want to get back to what I miss, which is writing. I’m going to stop re-editing myself a billion times (you should see the number of saved entries that have never been posted). Simply write, and post what I have without critiquing myself.

So welcome to 2012, and hopefully a new chapter for this blog.
