Goodbye, Cyberspace! (i’m going on hiatus)

Happy December, Cyberspace!

Well, folks, I’m just going to cut right to the chase this morning: I’m going on a hiatus. I should probably have mentioned this last month, but writing 50,000 words for NaNo and blogging throughout the month of November (if you can even call that blogging?) has left me creatively drained. And, as every elf knows, a month filled with merry-making and Christmas-cookie-eating is the absolute best way to fill myself back up again!Read More »

A Special Announcement. . .

good morning, cyberspace!

To be honest, this is a blog post that I’ve been putting off for a very long time. I knew I would have to write it eventually, but between writing everlost and the overall busyness of the past couple months, I just haven’t found the time to sit down and write this post in the way that it deserves to be written.

And that’s not even mentioning the overwhelming flood of anxiety that grapples my mind every time I even so much as think about writing this post. This is something that’s very close to my heart, guys, and I know there are some of you out there who are going to believe it’s fake. There are some who are going to think it’s a joke because of certain circumstances of the past. There are some of you who are going to read this and laugh it off because it can’t possibly be real, right?

But I can personally assure you that it is real. It is true, and today, there are no more excuses for not saying it. There are no more methods of procrastination to keep me from writing this post.

So today I am finally baring my soul to you guys and telling you all what on earth has been happening in this crazy, hectic, absolutely beautiful life of mine.

And let me tell you what, folks. It’s a doozy.Read More »

Oops? (feat. actual footage of me as a baby???)

 

Hey, guys! So due to a very busy weekend (I’ve been working on EV nonstop. It’s fun. *thumbs up*) I kind of sort of failed to scrape a blog post together for today.

Aha. OOPS.

So today’s post is going to have to be bumped to Thursday! And I’m kinda disappointed about this, cause like. . .this week’s blog post is really exciting for me. BUT I’M SURE YOU’LL LOVE IT WHEN I FINALLY GET IT POSTED, GUYS.

I mean, it’s definitely not going to be as sought after as next week’s blog post, but you know. It’s still pretty fun. It’s a giant post all about NaNoWriMo, so obviously there is no physical way this can fail, amiright?

However, since I choose to post nothing if not quality content every single week here on Smudged Thoughts, I decided that I’d share with you all a never-before-seen video clip of me as a smol child bean!!

Because this isn’t random at all.

Such quality. Much wow.

You’re welcome.

See you all on Thursday!

— Kenzie

P.S. Also can we just appreciate the fact that like. . .he totally didn’t take a bite of that first cookie at all? Where on earth did the crumbs come from if the cookie was still completely intact? And if your child — who is obviously still a baby — just inhaled like four cookies the size of their face at once, would you seriously go back to the kitchen and bring them yet another plateful? And then a THIRD? I mean, why is this woman just staring at the camera like she’s utterly helpless? YOU’RE LITERALLY ENABLING HIS COOKIE OBSESSION, LADY. Stop looking at me like I’m the one who did something wrong here. And also why on earth did you bake so many kinds of cookies. . .? Are you having a bake sale, or. . .?

And also I am seriously sitting here analyzing a Sesame Street video in the middle of the night. What on earth has happened to my life. . .

Please Don’t Murder Me, Peasants (*insert awkward laughter here*)

good morning, cyberspace!

And welcome back to yet another episode of Kenzie Posts Super Duper Late and Hopes Her Angry Friends Don’t Rip Her Head Off With A Cheese Grater! I’ve got to say, this has probably been the longest running series I’ve done here on Smudged Thoughts. Let’s give me a nice, big, juicy round of applesauce applause, shall we?

oh my god wow GIF by 9Now

Thank you. Thank you. I’m expecting my golden trophy for World’s Worst Blogger in the mail any day now. However, to be fair, this blog’s tagline is “The Worst Blog in Cyberpace”. So. I mean we’re totally living up to our title these past few months, am I right?

Aha.Read More »

An Announcement (Part Two)

good evening, cyberspace! Once again we must come to you with unfortunate news. Last Tuesday we posted an announcement that said our newest smudge — StoryTime With Kenzie! The Day I Nearly Died — would be posted today. On Friday. Like three hours ago. Unfortunately, though every member of our staff has been working tirelessly […]

An Announcement

good evening, cyberspace! Due to a very busy week and an exceedingly gruesome weekend, us writers here at Smudged Thoughts have been unable to sit still long enough to produce a decently written smudge for this week. It is therefore our unfortunate duty to inform you that this week’s post has been bumped to Friday. […]

Let’s Talk About Life, Yeah?

good morning, Cyberspace,

and welcome back to yet another episode of Kenzie Waits Until Monday To Write Her Weekly Blog Post! WOOT WOOT!

You’d think that after nearly two years of blogging I’d figure out that there are actually seven days of a typical week, and therefore I could potentially utilize some of those days for blogging. But no. Nope, I prefer waiting until the very last minute, because apparently I’m still holding out hope that Armageddon is nigh and the world will spontaneously implode before Tuesday morning.

So here I am again, trying to figure out what to write for tomorrow’s post, and all I can think about is the fact that I should really be working on my novel. Because I love my novel. And I want to be a full-time novelist, not a full-time blogger, (although admittedly that would be kinda fun? if only I didn’t have a thousand and one story ideas bubbling in my brain…) which means that, in order to achieve that ultimate goal, I actually need to work on my novel.

*brain implodes*

I know, right? WHO WOULDA THUNK.

But alas, it is true. And so in order to chunk out some time for me to spend in the world of everlost today (yesterday? I’m writing this on Monday, so….?), I’m going to be doing a simple post this week. A happy little post. A post about life.

Or rather, a post about MY life. Because my life is totally cool and hip and not at all boring.

#lies

So even though I loathe writing update posts (pretty sure we’ve been over this about ten times already…) there are some Things that have happened/will happen that I kind of want to talk to you guys about. So.

Here we go again.Read More »
