In the words of Samwise Gamgee: Well, I'm back.

I didn't mean to be. And anyway, if you leave your blog for half a year, what right have you to come back? Actually, you have every right in the world. And besides, I'm attached to it. Like a pet, or a ship, or 1 a.m. snacks (quesadillas are a+ 1 a.m. snacks, by the way). I'm not sure which direction this blog will be taking from now on. Not that it ever took any particular direction before. But I was trying too hard before, and it wore down into not trying at all, so now I'll just try a little bit and hope that it will somehow help me to live more authentically. That's what the priest at camp (a great hulk of a Franciscan friar with a mighty hand shake and the kind of soul you feel you could open up yours to and still be quite alright) last summer told me to do.

Also, at camp, I saved the world from an invasion of Hell Wasps (they're like the hounds but stickier, and they reside beneath a piece of metal right outside one of the cabins) and figured out that 12 to 13-year-old boys are where my conversation skills peak at. Huh. Who knew?

Oh, and I am now a legal adult and I Am Very Scared But Also Highly Amused But Mainly Frightened Because Now I Have To Figure Out What To Do With My Life And I Just Have No Idea Darn Darn Darn Darny Darn It.

So, here it is. Arda Nessimava reborn. Yay.

(by the way, i'm wondering if i should maybe change my url? or would that create pandemonium for anyone who still cares about my thrilling blog?)
