So, as you've surely gathered over the years here, I have almost no self-control nor sense of moderation when it comes to SPN. If I'm in it, that's all I really want in my life. After binging my way through most of S8-most of 10 over the holidays and catching the first ep or two we had in January, I managed to successfully wean myself off SPN for job market/dissertation reasons. (Though I often still pined for them.)

Now that I've defended my dissertation (though I still need to actually file, pfft. And have been psychically unable to open the doc again and copyedit as of yet), I will be working a normal human work schedule, and so 100% have time to catch up on my S15 tags and watch the two most recent eps. But at the same time, I know that if I watch them I will JUST WANT ALL SPN ALL THE TIME and I kind of feel like I need to take this opportunity to avail myself of other things that have been on my list, before I get deep back in with the Winchesters. (Especially since we're currently hiatusing indefinitely in the midst of, you know, global pandemic.)

But like, I miss them. But I know that if I jump in I won't get to enjoy rewatching The Expanse, or finishing my Cars WIP from 2017, or watching other TV people keep recommending but I've never seen, like The Terror. This morning I finished a book about the Sri Lankan civil war and enjoyed it way more right now than I had when I was reading it at the same time as I was binging S9/10, because all I really wanted was SPN, not the Sri Lankan civil war. XP Even though it's legitimately a fantastic book.

This post is really just me pointing out to myself how dumb it is that I'm subjecting myself to this deprivation because I am unable to appropriately manage my relationship to SPN. I COULD LITERALLY HAVE IT IF I WEREN'T SUCH A DOOFUS, OMG. The rest of this post is just me waiting for my hard-boiled eggs to cool so I can make egg salad.

Okay, but also, has anyone watched The Expanse because I adooooooooore it and if you've seen it pls say hi! (I feel like bratfarrar might enjoy it.)
