fuzmeister: Phenomenon
Is there an official term for the phenomenon of feeling great sadness while being nostalgic?

I sometimes let my mind wander to how many micro changes in my life have led me to where I am today.

I think of people I was at one-time incredibly close with on a daily basis and now haven't spoken with for years.

I appreciate that change is a natural part of existence and usually I go with the ebb and flow of things, but, damn, sometimes it really just hits me hard.

A show of hands - who else is completely overwhelmed any time they start a new job with a new company/organization?

I always forget what a stressful experience it is getting acclimated... or maybe it's just me.

fuzmeister: We Had a Kid
With the impending new year upon us, why not take some time to reflect on all of life's milestones, trials, and tribulations that fell upon us in the year of our lord 2019...?

We had a kid a little over two months ago after being married for almost 11 years and together almost 15.

I've been going far out of my way to avoid posting anything on social media and such regarding the topic, but I figure why not share a snippet of news via Vent in the spirit of the coming new year.

I miss sleep. All of you people that do this more than once - God bless you; you're insane.

fuzmeister: The Rise of Skywalker
I really want to do an in-depth analysis of this film at some point, but my initial reaction was basically "wow, that sucked so bad."

How do you take an intellectual property worth so much money and not have some sort of roadmap for a series of films? It was badly in need of script-doctoring, narrative tweaking, and editing.

I am in disbelief that JJ could craft something so rushed, sloppy, and devoid of logical storytelling, but I guess when Disney has you under the gun you do what the house of mouse demands. Truly this felt like something built in a corporate boardroom and not crafted out of respect for the lore (like The Force Awakens or The Last Jedi felt to me anyway).

...and all of this criticism is coming from one of the most die-hard Star Wars fans you'll ever meet. It's really a shame they couldn't stick the landing on this trilogy of films and actively destroyed the legacy of some of the classic narrative by decisions made in this final episodic film.
