Hiatus Over!

I’m baaaaaaack!

Did ya miss me? Because I missed you! I even had a nightmare that, upon my return, I forgot to live-blog tonight’s episodes! Have no fear, though; we are now back to our regularly scheduled programming. In addition to live-blogging this week’s new episodes of One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl and 90210, I’ll (hopefully) have reaction posts up beforehand for last week’s eps. Plus the next several days will be jam-packed with all the news and spoilers that weren’t posted while I was away.

Believe it or not, even in Cancun, I was able to (somewhat) get my teen drama fix. The Sony Entertainment channel airs Beverly Hills 90210 twice a day Monday-Friday (the same episode; they’re currently in season 9) and 90210 a few times a week (the same episode; they’re currently in early season 2). Then there’s WB TV (WB!!!), which airs Gossip Girl at 11pm Sunday nights (currently in early season 3). Neither channel, or any other I got in the hotel, aired One Tree Hill. I did get to see some episodes of Felicity which, though, not a teen drama, I have always regretted not watching it when it originally aired. I really enjoyed it, as it has many teen drama elements, just in a college setting (which some of our teen dramas have gone on to show).

I hope you all had a wonderful week and are as excited as I am to get back into the teen drama swing of things!

From tomorrow through next Sunday, Dec. 6, 2009, TeenDramaWhore.com will be on hiatus.

I’ll be taking a solo trip to Cancun–a last-minute decision but a long-held desire.

Here’s the best way I can explain it:

Remember in season 1 of Dawson’s Creek when Joey had the opportunity to go to Paris but passed it up?

A few years later, she was at the airport and again had the option of going but decided not to.

Then, finally, in the last season and the second-to-last episode, Joey finally makes it there.

This is my Paris.

Not Cancun, specifically. But to take a trip by myself where I not only get some R & R but–more importantly–have the time to do some serious self-reflection.

I’ve made some big life changes in the last few months but have had little time to process as I’ve just been going going going. I worry that if I don’t stop and breathe or achieve this dream while I have the opportunity to do so, I’ll live to regret it.

Unfortunately, that means I won’t be here to live-blog this week’s One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl and 90210 or even provide each day’s news.

I feel very guilty, as if I’m abandoning you, but I hope you understand.

And I also hope that you’ll be here waiting for me when I get back!

See you in a week!
