What follows is my 3rd lookback as we celebrate our three years here on this Pensieve. I wrote it June 2012, but the whole experience happened exactly three years ago, the 10th of May 2012. This particular entry was one of my entries that pushed a lot of buttons, I think, and even made a few teary-eyed. So with that, here it is once again, my recollection of what happened that day.
. . . time to blog on WordPress, that is!
This was Abbey’s very first entry here so I figured it should be part of our ‘Looking back/The Best Of’ the Fates as we continue to celebrate our 3rd year here on WP.
‘Til next look-back!
And so to continue with our “Best of” of the Fatespensieve as we three witches celebrate our three years as bloggers in this section of the ether, here’s one of my very early entries here on wordpress. I’d like to think of this particular entry as my way, three years ago, to process my thoughts about writing itself. Not sure if things have changed three years later (perhaps not), but my writing style still remains the same, I think. It’s a quick and easy read; something palatable enough to start my whole mental time travel as I recall all the things I’ve penned for the past few years.
Hello, folks! The Fates are celebrating their three years (hey, why am I speaking in the third person???) as collective bloggers for the Pensieve, and in a few days will be celebrating their GUKA (Great UK Adventure for the non-initiated), the very event that served as impetus for this blog. So I figured, what better way to commemorate it than by showcasing “THE BEST OF” the Fatespensieve? Fabulous idea, yes? Ha ha ha.
With that, we will be looking back at some of our most memorable entries; some funny, some thought-provoking, some just downright silly perhaps. But these are the entries that, we think, illustrate what we witches are capable of thinking, feeling, and yes, doing. So on to our first trip down the proverbial memory lane. Our first recall is from Giselle with an entry she wrote on 17 Oct 2012. Father Figure.
Well, hello there!
Forgive me for channeling my inner Ben Kenobi, but yeah, hello there! It’s been quite a while. A long while. I’ve been swamped with loads of Muggle stuff hence my absence from this pensieve. But all is well now. I’ve finally extricated myself from the sticky, very Muggley world of editing (the job was alright, sure, but handling prima donna writers is another thing, bleargh) and I have a bit of free time on my hands. So here I am!
School will be over in a few weeks, so that’s that. I’d be glad to see the backs of some of my students (the forgettable ones, definitely), but as always, I will definitely miss my Harry Potter class. It’s the only class I look forward to teaching, truth be told. But all good things must come to an end.
Anyway, what else? Oh, I celebrated my birthday a couple of months ago. Not much hoopla, but for me it was meaningful as I celebrated it on my own somewhere down south; where the water is calm and the sunset is glorious. Where the sand is white and powdery, and the sky is the calmest of blue. Looking forward to another getaway by the end of this year, this time with my two Powerpuff sisters, Bubbles and Buttercup. Let’s plan it na, girls!
Well, that’s about it, for now. Will post again once something earth-shattering happens (or once I find another free time along the way).
