epic fail.

Well, I officially fail at being a blogger. I haven't been able to update in forever because the English class I signed up for is way more of a timesuck than I'd expected. And I'm applying for a fellowship and the application is due at the end of this week, so I've been a little panicky lately about getting everything submitted on time. But still, no excuse for not writing. I'm thinking about altering the blog setup somewhat when I'm finally able to relax and get my next entry up. I might have to do short summaries but add more "Random Thoughts" bullets at the end, because as it is now my summaries are way too long and take hours to finish. And if the recaps take me less time to write, it will be easier to find time to get them done in between my class and everything else. So, slightly new format coming soon ("soon" being sometime after this Friday when I can finally put this mess of a fellowship application behind me). I feel bad that this blog has taken on somewhat of a "life of a soon-to-be grad student" subplot lately. I hope to be back onto the fun topic of Nickelodeon nostalgia very soon, because it's a much more enjoyable topic to focus on.

Aw, you didn't fail. We all go on our blogging sabbaticals, it's called having a life. And believe me, if this thing called life didn't get in the way of blogging, then there'd be something seriously wrong with you.

Looking forward to the next post, whenever it is.

Dude, this is so not fail. I'm still hopefully checking kidlit blogs that haven't been updated in months. Real life comes first! I personally don't mind waiting a long time for your entries because they're such good reads. Good luck with real life issues!

A good blog is always well worth the wait!

You're definitely not a failure. And I'll still be checking for updates even if they are shorter/less frequent.

I just discovered your blog and am in love! I'm 23 (wow, that was my first time saying that) and I grew up with all of these shows. Maybe Fifteen to a lesser extent, but I distinctly remember commercials with a blond girl finding a bottle of booze in a guy's backpack....and like a Finnish exchange student.

Hello anyone who may see this... I still exist. :) The week after I wrote this entry I was sick, probably from all the stress I put myself though, and then classwork and regular-work picked up again like crazy. I want to get an episode-viewing in later this week (I'm thinking another Clarissa or maybe an Are You Afraid of the Dark in honor of Halloween). I will do my best. Trying to be a full-time worker and a part-time grad student simultaneously = bad idea.

And thanks to all of you for not yelling at me during my blogging lapse.
