I’m sorry that I haven’t been active on this blog at all for a while now. My boyfriend and I bought a house at the end of April, and we moved in at the end of July. We are still trying to remodel it and redecorate it, but that’s been taking up most of my free time and money. I’m working on making a couple of posts for this blog about our projects, but it’s been a slow process.
In the meantime, I haven’t really been dressing up or going out. I recently got a job as a temp doing whatever odd assignments at my old university, and I’m trying to get a full-time position there. Within the past month or so, I have rediscovered my deep, deep love of the Sims, so I’ve been playing lots of Sims 3. I’ve been playing with a silly, spooky world filled with sims I made of the Addams family, the Munsters, the Sanderson sisters from Hocus Pocus, the Spellmans (and Harvey) from Sabrina the Teenage Witch, the Witches of Eastwick, Sam and Dean Winchester, Elvira, and a bunch of the characters from the Monster High webisodes. It’s been lots of fun, but it’s not really anything to write a blog post on. Maybe I could do a little something about lolita fashion in the Sims 3, but the game and the clothing DLC are both so old that it seems like it would be a bit weird to do that. I may anyway, but probably not.
I hope that you all have been having a fantastic time while I’ve been away. Once my kitchen is done, I plan on doing lots more recipe posts. Hopefully, that will be soon!
I’m currently taking graduate classes and preparing to apply to Ph.D. programs in December. I just finished my first week, and I’m still very excited and hopeful. Even so, I really am noticing the huge increase in what I’m expected to read and the time it’s going to take to complete all my papers and projects. As much as I love this blog, I really need to focus on my coursework and research right now.
I’ve prepared a couple of posts that are scheduled to be released every so often, but they’re probably going to be less-involved than I normally like to do. I’m also not going to be doing any current Lolita Blog Carnival posts at least until the end of April (not that I’ve been active in that circle lately). The other thing to note is that I might run out of scheduled posts before I can dedicate some time to this blog again, so there may or may not be a couple of weeks between now and winter break where I don’t post anything.
It’s been a while since my last post. I don’t have a firm publishing schedule, but I would like to post at least twice per month. I did not have the time to write a single post in April because my semester was very stressful at the end. However, I am now completely done! I graduated with a BA in English Writing. Whoo!
I just wanted to apologize for not maintaining this blog like I intended. I have several posts on which I’m still working, but it will probably be a few days before I post something. I’m very busy planning for a super special, secret trip right now, and that’s taking most of my attention. You’ll hear all about it when I get back.
I’ve admired lolita fashion since early high school, but I only started wearing it two years ago at the age of 19. I still love the fashion and how I feel when I wear it, but I’ve been wearing it less and less. I recently gained a lot of weight, and I just don’t fit into most of my clothes anymore. Starting this blog is part of what I’m doing to get back into lolita.
I’ll post a selective lolita timeline soon, but all of my coords (even the lackluster ones) can be found on my lolita tumblr raven-snow. I will still keep that tumblr as the place where I post every outfit, and I’ll probably post monthly summaries on this blog. We’ll see how things go. This blog will also have updates about my life and lolita, posts about my sewing or crafting works-in-progress, wishlists, theme posts, and other such things.
That’s all I have for now. I hope you enjoy your stay here and check back with me every once in a while.
