Greetings Nerds! 2013 is moving right along! It’s already April, and I can’t believe that no one in my family pulled an April Fool’s joke! My husband is notorious for those! We’ve been so busy between work and school, that it completely bypassed us. Not that I was ever great with pranks anyways. I was usually the one who was on the receiving end, not the giving. This year, there’s nothing to report. We all forgot about it. It’s amazing how life can slip up and make someone forget about things they took pleasure in doing. Life has been trying to get me down lately, but I’m doing my best to stay positive.
It doesn’t help that Disney has opted to close Lucas Arts. What?! Are they out of their minds? Several Star Wars fans got massive nerd rage just reading that headline – especially the ones who are hard up regarding the video games that came from Lucas Arts. Even if a new brand picks it up, it’s not going to be the same. Star Wars and Lucas – it’s like iTunes and Apple. They sort of go hand in hand. Making changes like this wounds fans, and makes them worrisome about what’s going to happen next. I know I am.
Then, there’s Amazon, that’s taking over Goodreads. I love both company’s so I’m not too worried about this change, but it’s yet another change. Goodreads is a book reviewing site, and Amazon has their own area for reviews. I’m not sure how his is going to benefit them, so I’ll just have to wait and see what pro’s this merger is bringing to the table. If there are any fee’s to be implemented, this book nerd will be out of there! I’m living paycheck to paycheck, and too many luxuries will make my bank less lucrative than it already is.
They’re also implementing changes at work – which I’m just going to glide right over. I don’t usually like speaking about my actual job in my blog. In today’s world if you’re not politically correct you tend to get fired. Still, IT’S MORE CHANGES!
I’m good with change, honestly. I don’t mind it, I’m great at adapting, and can easily see both the pros and the cons of situations. The problem is it seems like so many changes are just creeping their way up, and it’s somewhat putting me on overload. Too much change makes me wary – generally because in my experience too much change brings a lot of bad with it.
So what’s the best way to deal with change? I’m so glad I started journaling again. I forgot how much fun it is to just rant, bitch, moan, and complain without the worry of anyone else having to hear it or read it. Yes, I vent in my journals. I’m not eloquent, poetic, or worrying about grammar in my journal. It’s got scribbles and notes, jots and dots, ink smears and misspelled words. It’s the best form of free writing, especially when I don’t have to worry about what other people think of it.
In hopes of making the blog a little bit more interactive, I’m posing a question to the (few) readers who frequent Thirty, Nerdy, and Fabulous. So how do you guys deal with a lot of change in a short period? Is there a mantra, a routine, lots of meditation and warm bubble baths? I’d love to hear from you.
