Let's get it out of the way first though, because obvs Suits is still my primary fannish concern and I have feelings/thoughts to share. I miss the show and need it to come back, because I feel absolutely no inspiration to write fic at the moment. :'( I want to be inspired, I want to give more porn to the fandom, I want to want to write. Something short, preferably, because I have a lot of other shit going on right now: I'm back in school and I need to start thinking about my dissertation (which is going to be on fandom and female sexuality btw - if anyone academic is still reading this blog and can recommend some essential reading to me I'd be grateful), and about my other classes, one of which is a creative writing class so this year will be the year I do some fiction writing that is not pornographic, and is not fanfiction. What! I'm excited about that actually. I think one of the reasons I'm not inspired to write Harvey/Mike at the moment is because I have other ideas - ORIGINAL ideas - that are dominating my mind grapes. So. This will be the year of lots and lots of writing, different kinds of writing. But I don't want to neglect fandom and I'm worried that this will happen.
I did this amazing thing the other week which I can't believe I haven't been doing for years: I made a spreadsheet with all the tv shows I watch, the season and episode number, and the day/date it airs. My life is now already so much easier because of this spreadsheet. Also, I watch way too much tv, but that's hardly news. The problem is, there are new shows I want to try, new shows I am bound to pick up if the buzz surrounding them piques my interest, and not enough time in the goddamn day. I need to watch The Mindy Project for instance, and that's only one new show that sounds appealing.
I'm not drinking at the moment and it's working well for me - I have more time and energy to spend on reading and writing and school work, and tbh the older I get the more anti-social I feel anyway. Going out holds little appeal compared with the joys of staying in and being productive on my own.
That said, I've been toying with the idea of joining a dating site and maybe meeting a few real* men. I'm perfectly happy on my own, which is why I've been single as long as I have, but at the same time I feel like I should maybe make an effort before I completely lose my looks. *shrug*
*by real I mean 'not fictional' as opposed to 'manly'. although manly is good too.
Finally, some quick non-spoilery comments about some of the shows I'm watching:
Homeland: Holy shit. Amazing. Mind blowing. Best.
Grimm: Pretty terrible but I'm wildly attracted to Nick Burkhardt. I found him super boring at first but now I can't get over his gorgeous face and his Clark Kentishness and how sexy he is when he's irritated or angry or sad. I have Nick problems.
Hart of Dixie: Only seen the first episode (so don't spoil me for e02!) but HOMG TEAM WAAAAAAAAADE. I can't even tell you how hard I'm shipping Zoe and Wade. They are glorious together.
Bob's Burgers: I love them all but Tina Belcher is my perfect character.
Fringe: I'm bored. I feel like I should drop it to free up some time for a new show but then I think this is maybe(probably?) the last season so I may as well keep watching, and hopefully it will get more engaging at some point.
The Good Wife: Not enjoying the Kalinda storyline so far. Panjabi and Marc Warren don't have much chemistry and the show seems to be glorifying/eroticising the abusive nature of their relationship, which is rubbing me up the wrong way.
What's new with you guys!
