Photo of the Week

Like this handsome San Sebastian photo of Michael Fassbender taken a few weeks ago, I'm going to chill out for this most anticipated weekend. I had a thought the other day that whatever I may think is a good idea, is not a good idea or of interest to others. Sometimes my enthusiasm can get ahead of me and I have to catch myself and slow down or I'll make a fool of myself. While trying to embrace my Buddhist beliefs of being compassionate, sharing, and generous, the reality of the situation is that there is a time and place and certain peoples willing to accept those beliefs. I gave it a try and I'll just back off and do my own thing for myself. It's all good, lesson learned.

I know what I'm writing is very cryptic, and that's deliberate, but what I do want to make perfectly clear is that I don't want my enjoyment of being a part of the Michael Fassbender fan community to become a downward spiral like my previous passion of another British actor. I know the signs to watch out for and now I know how to gauge myself with my contributions and opinions. Being a fan is a voluntary thing and should be for fun 100% of the time. I've suffered too much in the past year and a half and don't want anymore saga from real life or on the internet.

Anyway, enough of that, I got it off my chest. I have come to highly anticipate receiving cool Google alerts on Michael recently so that I can have stuff to write about here at FF. The information is slowly trickling in and that's fine, but I cannot wait until heavy duty fun facts and new revealing interviews of Michael come pouring in. Like in the Times Online interview from the other day, I learned some very cool things about Michael which gave me more information about what makes this guy tick. He takes his craft very seriously and is enjoying his success. He comes across as fun, humble, intelligent, and is very happy with the state of his life and career. He has a healthy attitude and outlook on life. I'm so pleased to see this in him so early in the game of my interest in him because unlike my other former fascination subject, Michael is sincere and honest and I know I'm not wasting my time with this hobby of authoring FF for a bratty and rude hotshot. He is quite the contrary. And again, as long as I gauge myself properly in the fandom, I will completely enjoy myself and come and go as I please.
Have a good weekend!

I completely understand. I really think that activies like blogging allow one to take a step back and look at what's been going on, concerning his or hers interests.
