Bless me, Internet, for I have sinned. It has been 3 years since my last blog post.

Pain, Vin, Fromage, April 2015. There's a lot about life you can realize and appreciate drinking wine in a Paris dungeon.

OY. VEY.

No one likes excuses or apologies when someone hasn’t posted in forever. We all get that life happens, so I’ll just sum up the last 3 years in the following:

Berlin.
Munich.
Adoption.
Snort Monster.
Cancer.
London.
Paris.
Dublin.
Lola.
Veganism.

Cool!

The beginning of 2016 has me at a moment where I’m going back to my roots yet experiencing rebirth. I feel like a child again yet I’ve never felt more adult. And I’m not talking about “haaayyyooooo, I can do what I want, bitches, wanna see my ID??” kind of adult; I’m talkng about “oh MAN, so THAT’S what Mom and Dad always meant when they did that or said that.” I’m understanding and appreciating the nuances of true adulthood yet getting back in touch with what sparks my creativity and inspiration to share with the world without fear of judgement.

I also used to pride myself with how busy I was, but now I value time management, truly being present, omitting guilt-ridden obligations, appreciating the power of asking for help, and shutting off and refueling at the end of the day so I’m mentally ready to take on tomorrow.

Where’s ‘What’s A Rerun?’ What’s Next?

For those of you keeping up, you might be wondering what happened to the weekly collaborative installment of ‘What’s a Rerun?’ My brother, (award-winning writer/filmmaker C.J. Arellano) and I decided that, while responding to creative pieces WITH creativity (artwork and analysis) is fun, we wanted to have the freedom of total creativity beyond just responding to someone else’s creative endeavors.

That said, ‘What’s a Rerun?’ isn’t going anywhere. You can still read C.J.’s incredibly insightful reviews and view my geeky fan art on the site. And for anyone who wants to contribute any art and analysis to the site may still do so by emailing us at whatsarerun@gmail.com. We’ll continue to update the site whenever we feel inspired to write a review on a classic TV episode and create some great fan art for it.

Sure, we’re going to leave ‘What’s a Rerun?’ on the shelf for a while… but we decided we really loved collaborating with one another.

So we had a meeting last weekend to chat about what’s next for us siblings. 

And what we came up with is pretty exciting. 

Come launch time, we hope you’ll agree. 

I can’t wait to spill the beans on it, but for now, we’re working hard to bring you creative bits of awesomeness that we hope has a great sharability factor.

We enjoy our creative endeavors, and we’d like you to enjoy them too.

For now, stay cool, enjoy the summer, and thank you for staying tuned!
