I just wanted to let you all know that I'm going on hiatus for a while. Before anyone freaks out, no I have not lost my love for Old Hollywood. As a matter of fact I've just started getting interested in a lot more Old Hollywood stars that I never thought about before. And I haven't stopped loving writing. Writing is a part of me, that will never change. But I've been writing here on In the Mood and watching oldies for nearly two years and I need a break. A break to gather my thoughts, and to elicit some inspiration from the world. Some time to widen my horizons a bit.
Sometimes - and I know other bloggers have this problem - it's not the blogger keeping the blog, it's the blog keeping the blogger. And you get into this state where you feel if you don't come up with something brilliant you're letting someone down. So, sometimes you need to take a break and just completely cut yourself off until you get your mind back in the right spot. Which is what I'm doing.
The same thing is happening to me with watching Old Movies, no, I'll never stop loving them; but it's like I've gotten to this point where I feel bad if I watch anything else. So I have to slap myself back into reality and say "Nat, if you don't want to watch Marie Antoinette and you want to watch Hidalgo instead GO DO IT!" In any case it's not getting rid of Old Hollywood, only like I said, widening my horizons.
Also, if any of you ever read "Lovely Nonsensities", my personal blog, I deleted it this morning. In addition to my Movie Watching/Blogging life, my real life has been all mixed up for me and just trying to be teenager, a teenager who isn't normal (ha!); and trying to decide what I want to do and who I want to be has been annoying me. Sooo... I decided I needed something fresh and brand new, something that I could make completely me (without pretenses and without expectations) something to kick-start a lot of other changes I'm trying to make in my life. That fresh thing is: But It Was
So, there we go. Maybe you didn't need such a long explanation, but I'll see you all in a while!
~Until Later On
