Hey, guys! Long time, no see.

If you read my last post, you know that some changes have been going on. For the record, my blog is still a little under-construction. Some of my posts needed to be cleaned up. I need to deal with the random text right below the blog description on the home page! And I need to work on the "About" section and the "Index" section...

Basically, there's still a lot of work to do. And hopefully having two co-bloggers will give me the time to do all that!

Yup, you read that right. Two co-bloggers for Wolfie. I'm excited (:

You met Roxy in the last post and you'll be meeting my other co-blogger soon.

Since this is a better update, I feel that I should explain my absence. The end of the school year just got really crazy. And once summer started, it somehow got crazier. There were family things. A trip to Florida. A lot of working. A lot of stressing out. I managed to get through the first season of Once Upon a Time. I'm on like episode 5 of the second season. It's going slow. I also have like 30 episodes of Gilmore Girls recorded on the DVR that I need to see soon...

And guess what? I'm 21 books behind on my Goodreads challenge! I remember when I was ten books AHEAD. And now I'm behind... Why does my reading slow down in the summer? That doesn't even make any sense.

But that's not even the worst part.

My writing. Is. Atrocious.

I never claimed to be a good writer. But trying to get back into it... Well, first off, I maybe got a couple scenes in a few days ago. But that's it. I haven't touched my WIP since NaNoWriMo. All of July and I only added a few scenes. I am disgusted with myself. How do I call myself a writer? More on that later, I'm sure.

I also! Have not been ice skating. Have hardly seen any friends, including my boyfriend.

I dyed my hair but now it's fading into brown again.

I still have a bunch of summer work to do.

How am I going to live?

Yeah, this post wasn't supposed to be this rant-y. The upside is that I'm going to have two new people around here. There will be fresh voices for you to read on the internet.

And with that, I am off. To somehow get my life in order.

Until next time!

I know things are a little crazy around here. There'll be another update post soon. And hopefully some co-blogger posts not too long after.  I've decided that I won't be too strict with a schedule around here. I'll try but honestly I could do without the stress right now.

That's only partially the point of today's post.

A few months ago, Ned Vizzini passed away. I wrote about it. I can't find the post, but I know I wrote about it.

Today Robin Williams passed away.

I honestly can't wrap my mind around this one. He was known for being a comedian, but that's not how I usually thought of him. I mean, don't get me wrong here. He is. He's funny. But when I think Robin Williams the first thing I think of is What Dreams May Come.

It probably sounds a little strange and really it only gets stranger.

If you know anything about that movie, you'd know that it's not really a funny movie. It's actually really dark and depressing (I haven't watched it in a while, don't get upset if I get the details wrong). Or better put, it' about death. It's about a man who dies some years after his kids die and his wife can't deal with the pain anymore so she commits suicide.

I'm sure you're seeing the irony now.

So why was this the first thing that popped into my head when I saw that his death was a suspected suicide? Well besides the fact that he was in it, it happens to be one of my favorite movies. I've been watching it for as long as I've been watching Jurassic Park. I was all of five or six when I first saw it. I didn't get it back then. I didn't really get it until I saw it sometime in middle school. But there are just these scenes that are stuck with me.

And so I'm sitting here and I'm thinking these things. And this is sad to me.

I want to watch What Dreams May Come. But I'm not sure how I'd react to that.

For the record, I'm not sure when I'll be reading It's Kind of a Funny Story again.

It's nothing against them or the way they died. It's just that I'm not sure how I can handle these beautiful pieces of art when I know their creators are no longer with us. And just a few months ago, they were.

Sorry for the depressing post. I just needed this out there.

*bows dramatically*

Okay, I know it's been a while. It's been... two months. Which is a while. I was doing so well for EIGHT MONTHS. And then I FELL OFF THE FACE OF THE PLANET. Figuratively speaking.

Maybe you've noticed, but I'm back now! And my blog looks totally different! It might stay like this, it might not. If you have any suggestions, feel free to let me know!

But that's not the point of this post. The point is to announce my return and introduce my FABULOUS NEW CO-BLOGGER.

(Sorry for all the caps, if you haven't noticed, I'm excited...)

Her name is known to me, but will not be known to you SO HA.

But that's okay. Because I am Wolfie and she is.... ROXY!!!!


And she will now appear on your lovely screens in text format:

Well hello everyone, I am Roxy and this is my first time blogging. I'm freakishly overly excited to start blogging with Wolfie. Can't wait!!

Please excuse her concise hello. She is new around here. Trust me, she'll get more talkative later, when she gets the hang of things! For now, be nice to her and love her anyways :D

We're both looking forward to this new adventure. Welcome to our humble forest!

-Wolfie & Roxy
