I'm not very good at doing things half way. I'm sort of an "all or nothing" sort of guy. This past month (and really the entirety of 2011) I have been working nonstop at my day job. I'm blessed to have a job that simply requires me to get the job done. Sometimes that means late starts, early finishes, and plenty leisure time. Sometimes, though, it means 3 months of 80 hour work weeks and never quite getting ahead. That's how 2011 has been and the last 3 weeks have been even worse. I've tried to keep up with the blogosphere during that time but haven't had as much success lately. I haven't even had much chance to watch and pay attention to movies lately, which is incredibly unlike me. I haven't had the time, even, to keep up with my normal columns like Movie News Today and New Movie Friday. The lack of content drives me crazy as I hate not putting out the amount of work that I'm used to around here.
Anyway, I say all that to say, I'm taking a short break. My work schedule should be slower for a while and as much as I want to dump all of that extra time into writing, I need to decompress for a bit. Plus, I need to watch some freaking movies so I have a little content to bring to the table! I plan to make a Bruce Willis-like comeback next Monday with a renewed vigor and energy for the blog. I hope you guys will allow me a short hiatus and head back to the Soap Box Office in a week or so.
