Okay. This is incredibly hard to say.

But it needs saying.

Basically: I’m taking an indefinite break from blogging.

I really don’t want to have to do this, believe me. But at the moment, I’m stretched incredibly thin. I have school, I’m writing two novels, and I’m trying to maintain some fragmented section of a social life– all while trying to maintain two blogs (well, I’ve taken a break from 24-Hour Nothing Hour too, I guess). Which means that something’s gotta give. It’s not going to be socializing, it’s not going to be writing, and it sure as hell isn’t going to be school. So, because of this, I’m taking a break from blogging.

And I don’t know when I’m going to be back.

I’m really sorry about this. I try to make Axolotl Ceviche an interesting place, full of good, funny writing, but lately I’ve felt that my output has suffered. Recently, I’ve noticed a much larger succession of filler posts and tiny little bits of nonsense, and I’m sorry, but that’s not interesting reading. And it’s not interesting to write, either. Which means that I have to take a break.

Relax, Internet. I’m not breaking up with you. I just think that you and I need some time apart. I’m going through a lot of stuff right now, which means that I have to do some… what’s a more manly term for “soul-searching”? “Introspecting”? Yeah, that works.*

Cheesy breakup lines aside, I do need to take a break from blogging for a while. And I don’t know how long that’ll be. I hope to get Axolotl Ceviche 2.0 set up by summertime, but that might not happen. Which means that it may be six months to a year before I’m blogging again.

I don’t want that to happen. But I do need to take a break from blogging for a while. And, so you know that I’m not dead or kidnapped by Gypsies or eloped to Patagonia with James Marsters or anything like that, I’m posting this.

I will be back. This I promise. But it’ll be a while.

Until then,

Could it possibly be that His penis got diseases from a Chumash tribe is the greatest line in the history of musical theater?

Think about it.
