It now seems so long since the anticipation for the first movie drove me and fellow Twilighters wild. We had custom shirts made. We squealed. We talked Twilight shop non-stop. To this day, I can infuse Twilight lingo into practically any conversation.
In 2009, my world changed when I began this blog. What started as a simple outlet to vent, spread news, and oscillate between real-world obligations and an alternate reality exploded. What would have been a pipe dream months ago - the ability to interview entertainment figures - has now become a part of my reality. Real world and alternate reality have collided, and I have only the Twilight Saga to thank for that.
As a new decade approaches, I find myself in a new Twilight world; one I can navigate more clearly. The anticipation of New Moon had me scouring the net for every tiny bit of information I could find. Spoilers meant nothing to me; they only provided an extra tinge of excitement before I immersed myself in the next new tidbit splashed across the net.
But I'm considering a New Year's resolution, and I almost kick myself for even considering it - to stay spoiler-free until the release of Eclipse. Is it possible to be a Twilight blogger and remain an Eclipse virgin? My brain was on Twilight overload almost a month before the release of New Moon, and I had to take a break. Will I find the opposite effect occuring if I abstain for six months?
Only one picture has been released of Eclipse thus far, and aside from Edward's drooping bouffant, it could be an image from any of the three movies; it hardly counts as a spoiler. So this is the time to make a resolution... a pinky swear, of sorts.
Anyone else willing to take the plunge?
