Imitation is the sincerest form of disrespect

I saw this while I was pinning pins on Pinterest and it struck a chord with me, especially since I do this very thing!

Am I being disrespectful to the artists I admire and the artists that inspire me by using their work or methods to create?

I find this statement is the very opposite of what I try to do with my creations. I feel quite incensed by this actually. I am at work right now and can only post this really quickly but I’d love to hear your thoughts, even if you agree 😁

Now that I know who Rey is, I’m spoiled forever

Some time last week I read a spoiler that was an actual true spoiler and well, my experience of the last movie is spoiled.

I have noone but myself to blame, even though I wasn’t particularly looking for spoilers that day, I just had to click.

Unlike previous posts which were all labeled as Rumors on Reddit, this is classified as a leak of actual, legitimate information about the books releasing at the end of the year.

That’s why I don’t doubt it and why my visits to social media sites now has me cringing a little.

I’m not going to spoil anyone else’s experience because I’m not like that. But I kinda wish I hadn’t seen it in all honesty.

RIP – Peter Mayhew, Forever Chewbacca

I’ve seen a lot of news websites posting about Peter Mayhew and I didn’t really want to make a post about his passing because I felt that so many websites were using the news as click bait. And they do this without a single thought because it’s news. But Peter Mayhew was the original Chewbacca and will always be “the” Chewbacca for me. Having grown up with the OT, I never really ever thought he would get replaced or needed to be replaced as the Mighty Chewbacca. That’s not to say that the new actor is bad or not as good or anything like that, he seems to be taking the role to a good place as well. But it’s kind of like saying that (as an example) they could easily replace Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy because they just can’t. She’ll always be the only “Buffy” for me as Peter Mayhew will always be the only Chewbacca. Does that make sense? I hope so.

I’d like to wish Peter’s family and friends my deepest condolences. Peter brought so much to his role as Chewbacca and has made such a deep and lasting impact on so many lives as a result.

May he rest in peace, The Mighty Chewbacca, Peter Mayhew 1944 – 2019

I’ve neglected my blog a little but I’m filling that time with great things

I’ve finally broken my writing streak which is bad because I made a promise to myself to write every day. That was my promise to who I was, and now I am moving into a different phase of my creative life, and I feel it’s time to set new goals as well. That’s not an excuse. I’ve acknowledged the broken promise, but I feel less guilty about it because I’ve transitioned into something I think is even better.

Right now…

Right now I feel like standing up and yelling at the top of my voice. I want to walk towards the door and never come back to this awful place. I have absolutely no reason to want to be here anymore. Anything good that I felt for this place died some time ago. I’m only here because my pride and my stubbornness refuse to let me leave.

I got “told” that we might be restructuring again

And the team will be whittled down even further. But here’s the thing, we are hiring two new people, so why would we be restructuring again? The TL said not to worry because it “might” not happen.

It’s made me feel nervous all over again 😥

@status update Not feeling like doing anything

Last night I did something I haven’t done in a while and I walked away from my PC and did well, nothing. This is very unlike me. I am usually bursting with creativity at night, but last night I felt so unmotivated. I don’t like getting into slumps like this. Sometimes these “slumps”can last a long time… I am still writing though 😊
