Spoilers! I’m back from hiatus! Future Plans?

Hello readers and fellow bloggers!

I am back from my moving hiatus… sorta. I am easing back into my blogging and YouTube schedule so posts may be sporadic for a little while. I am low on spoons thanks to the stresses of a new home and the ongoing pandemic so I don’t want to push myself. I have all of these thoughts and ideas that I am dying to get out as they’ve been building up on my break but once I sit down, I can’t seem to get the words out. Instead, I’ve made a list of post and video ideas that I will slowly work through and hope to be back to my regular schedule soon. I’m not going to give myself a deadline, because I will end up failing right now. So let’s chat a bit about what happened on the break and future plans for A Geeky Gal.

Spoilers! I’m Taking a(nother) Short Break

Spoilers! I’m Taking a(nother) Short Break

Hello readers and fellow bloggers!

So usually I only take a break once a year but this year has been a wild ride. A lot of good things have happened in the last couple of months. I got a big promotion at work. I’m now a lead artist which basically means I’m the supervisor over all of the artists at the company I work at. It’s been a big shift in responsibilities and lot of hours spent training and learning. I feel like I’m really going to do a good job in this new position, but right now it’s the ultimate time suck. I’ve been pulling extra hours to get things just right, but that should be over once I get past the few hurdles I’ve had thrown at me recently.

On top of a cool promotion, Alec and I have also been house hunting. That is a blog post all on it’s own, but please don’t worry too much; we’re closing on our first home at the end of August! We have a lot to do on top of the financial and negotiating side of the process like sorting things for a yard sale (as we have too much in our little rental house that we don’t want to take with us), packing everything that we do plan on taking to our new home, painting some of the rooms at the new house, actually moving to the new house, and getting a few key pieces of furniture for our new space (Like a couch that isn’t broken and a real bed frame hah! Does this mean we’re adults now?).

During this hectic time, we also welcomed a good friend from Alabama to stay with us while he gets on his feet in STL. My best friend’s husband got a job at the same company I work for so we’re working from home together while he searches for an apartment for his family. Our little space has gotten more lively and while I do enjoy the company, it makes it harder to film videos when I don’t have a private space to do so. I have been able to squeeze out a voice-over here and there, but regular videos with face cam will not be happening in the next couple of months.

All of that to say that basically I will be taking another break. This time it will be from the blog as well as YouTube. I love to write for the blog, and I love to play games for my channel, but those things need to take a back seat so I can focus on real life right now. I do plan on trickling in a post or video here and there as I’ve made prior commitments, but I will most definitely not be answering comments every day as I usually do. If you need to get in touch with me, my DMs on Instagram and Twitter are always open. I will get back to you ASAP. You can find both of those linked below.

If you’re a patron or would like to become a patron, I will be keeping y’all up to date on the behind the scenes of everything as I go along. The link for my Patreon is here if you’d like to support me in that way.

I’m not sure exactly when I will be back but I’m hoping for a comeback date in September. I really appreciate everyone’s understanding ahead of time. I know my platform has grown because of each and everyone of you, and I can’t thank you all enough for giving me this space to be myself. Rest assured, I will be back, and it’ll be better than ever!

Thank you all for understanding. See y’all soon.

10 Healing BTS Song Lyrics

10 Healing BTS Song Lyrics

Most K-Pop isn’t open about mental health, mental illness, or personal struggles, and that’s where BTS is different. One of the biggest reasons I love BTS is their incredible lyrics that touch on aspects of mental health and mental illness. Their music videos speak volumes even with a language barrier. Their canon Webtoon, The Most Beautiful Moment in Life Pt.0: Save Me, dives into the mental health of their alter egos as well and lends a hand to their narrative of healing, loving yourself, and moving forward.

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite lyrics from BTS’s songs that have been healing for me. Whether I was deep in depression on these days or just needing a little reminder that I’m going to be okay, BTS was able to touch my heart, and I hope that some of these songs and lyrics can help you as well.

Spoilers! I’m Back! What’s Next?

Spoilers! I’m Back! What’s Next?

Hello again readers and fellow bloggers!

If you are unaware, I took off from blogging for the month of May to focus on my mental health and get my life in order now that I am working from home indefinitely which still seems to be the case, fortunately and unfortunately. COVID-19 has taken a massive toll on me, my family, and my mental health. Taking a break felt like the best course of action, and I was right! I am back from my break and feeling more comfortable, refreshed, and organized. So let’s chat about what I did on my break and what’s next for A Geeky Gal & Megan Marie YT!

Spoilers! I’m Taking a Short Break

Spoilers! I’m Taking a Short Break

Hello readers and fellow bloggers!

I’ve made the executive decision to take the month of May off.

Like everyone else, I’ve been struggling with self isolating. With the news that I may be working from home until the end of summer, I’d like to use my personal time to get my things in order to make a more permanent place to work more comfortably. I also need to focus on some self care and get my new schedule settled so I can be my best self for my family and all of you.

I do have good news though. I will continue to post videos to YouTube every Friday and every other Wednesday as my mental health permits. My patrons recently voted on a new video idea that will be going up some time this month so keep those YouTube notifications on! I also still have a lot of awards and tags to do, and I will get to them when I come back in June!

Thank you all for understanding. In order to be my best self, I have to take a break. See y’all in June.
