The August Catch Up
As you may have noticed, the blog has gone silent. Not just because of the upcoming changes, I will mention, but significant life adjustments have happened. I'm sad to admit I lost a lot of drive and desire to manage this blog after my Dad passed away unexpectedly, an event that has left me with my head spinning and a full travel itinerary. August is usually a busy travel month as it is but this month even more so. It is uniquely awful. Weddings, holidays and work all with the emotional baggage I am still carrying while fighting to make sure my checked bag weighs under 50lbs. It can be hard enough just to get up, let alone step on a plane or pack another bag. If I add writing or drawing into the equation, I've suddenly mixed myself an overwhelmed Sophie cocktail. But the temporary confinements have their pros and purposes. They allow plenty of time for inner reflections which can lead to reawakenings, and while I'm still a little groggy but starting to come out of the fog.
You'll start to see some changes and recurring series spread through the blog, as well as a few surprises I am not completely ready to unveil just yet. You may have noticed a freshened up site layout and some brandings, but I'm not done yet. Keep your eyes peeled for some fun goodies headed this way soon. I am going back to the roots of the creation of Sparkley Ass Bitch and making a strong effort to focus on the lifestyle of an active, modern female geek, so I've been brainstorming a lot and have a bunch of ideas. All in all, I am excited to be back and get back to the foundation of why I wanted to start blogging in the first place and really push it to finish this year off in a way that would make my dad proud.
