It's ALIVE (AKA a short explanation and apology for my ridiculously long hiatus)

Hello everyone!

As you can see, it's been almost a year since my last post on this blog. I disappeared without a trace, only reappearing briefly during Oscar season to comment on a few of all of your amazing blogs.

Thankfully, nothing dramatic happened to cause my hiatus - no, it was all good things! I went on a few trips last summer, began my first year of college, ended up becoming really busy with practicing and performing piano (my current career path), and the time I used to have to screen a bunch of movies and write posts simply vanished before my very eyes.

I kept meaning to write a post letting you all know that I was busy, or even a review a film or two, but I got overwhelmed and lazy and so many things happened all at once that my poor blog and all of you amazing readers got pushed to the back burner.

Being busy is really no excuse, since I am positive that any good blogger sets aside the time to dedicate to writing, but I lost my ability to keep up with everything that I wanted to, and so I just stopped even thinking about it.

I'm so sorry I left without a trace - when I "reappeared" during Oscar season, I realized what an amazing community of bloggers I had been a part of, and how much I missed being a part of it. You were all so supportive and so amazing during my two-ish years as an active member of the blogosphere and I just vanished without saying goodbye or thank you.

This is by no means a farewell post - in fact, if anything, it is a reaffirmation that I want to be a part of this community and that I'm going to keep reading and commenting on all of your blogs, and maybe even post every month or so, at least. "His Eyes Were Watching Movies" may never be as prolific as it used to be, but I still love movies as much as I always have and just because I'm not posting, it doesn't mean I've disappeared. :)

So, I just want to say thank you to all of you for having been such amazing blog buddies the past few years and I look forward to keeping in touch with all of you. You're all incredible people and fantastic writers, and I hope you can forgive me for abandoning you all.

Sincerely,

Robert
