Geekritique Is Taking a Brief Hiatus


Don’t worry, I love this blog far too much to leave for long. I’ll be back around the end of the month/beginning of April. I might have a review or two coming up in the next few days, but no promises. As many of my followers know, I’m getting married. Very soon actually. In 6 days I’ll marry my best friend and the love of my life. I posted some pictures of my engagement, where I surprised her by coming to Paris in secret at the end of her trip. In light of my absence for the next few weeks, here’s some footage of my proposal which took place just in front of the Louvre at the Jardin des Tuileries. 

For some clarity, my voice gets a bit lost in the audio. I told her “so that surprise wasn’t a puppy.” A terrible first line in any proposal situation, but I was very nervous. She knew I had a surprise coming, and she thought it might be a puppy for her return to the States. Nope. This was back in August of last year.

And now we’re getting married on Saturday, March 14. Going on a road trip in Ireland for our honeymoon, which I’m ecstatic about. Might post some pictures up.

This hiatus also includes my work on Tales from Atelinor, my writing blog where I share short stories that take place in the same fantasy universe. I have some really cool ideas on where to take the stories. Big things ahead!

I have several projects lined up that I wish to start here on Geekritique. Nothing I’m willing to share just yet, but you’ll see soon enough.

My friends over at The 52 Now! podcast gave me a shoutout which was pretty awesome of them. They’re a new comic book/pop culture-based show that delivers an excellent array of intelligent banter and commentary on news and the shape of the industry as a whole, including movie and television discussion. Be sure to check them out and follow their blog! Hopefully we can collaborate on a new movie release or something other in the future.

Thanks for following Geekritique, for liking my posts and commenting when you have something to offer. Really wouldn’t still be blogging if it weren’t for my frequent visitors. Have a great March. I’ll do my best to do the same!

      Hmm. Good question. Sometimes she worries I spend too much time on it, or other hobbies. But for the most part she sees it makes me happy. It’s a way for me to be creative and she has always been on board with it.

  1. Priorities… important to have them, and very important to have them in proper order. Sounds like you have everything well in hand. Good luck and good fortune to you both… and we’ll all be here when you get back to the blog!

      • Exactly. You can have it all… but sometimes it is good to go all-in on parts of your life. You can blog all the same a few weeks later… but the next couple of weeks are a once-in-a-lifetime thing, the memories of which will be with you forever so you want to be all there for every moment!

    Congrats! I honeymooned in Ireland too (just over a year ago in fact). The best trip I’ve ever taken, hands down. What areas will you be traveling in?

      We’re going all over. Starting in Dublin, traveling up to Northern Ireland, staying at a few bed & breakfasts, Belfast, then back down. We can’t wait!!
