It’s been a long while since I’ve been able to post here. I even stopped doing those monthly updates. For what it’s worth, I had started doing those again so I could keep people up to date if I were to disappear months for a time, as a friend had recommended to me a long time ago.
But then I became self-conscious about the fact that I rarely accomplished what I wrote in those posts, so then I stopped at the worst timing possible since I went and took quite a long break, haha. So maybe I should have kept up with those sort of posts after all…
Anyways, it’s been a rough couple of months. I don’t know if you all follow the nonsense I say on Twitter, but we found out my mom has cancer back in August, which was a surprise to everyone. I had already been slipping on posting since I had always sucked at balancing and managing my time which led to FFXIV and work sort of taking priority over anime and visual novels and writing.
As such, the last couple of months have been a bit of a blur. I played various games to distract myself. I drive my brother and myself out to eat out almost every night to momentarily forget about my dying mother who is more or less confined to the living room. I keep telling myself to get back into anime and into writing, but I feel like such a jackass for not responding to comments or nominations. I feel overwhelmed with work since I’m picking up new responsibilities and I am dealing with a staffing shortage since two people in our small department have left this past month.
Ah, well, those are all just excuses at the end of the day, I guess.
Honestly, I’m going to try to bounce back into blogging, with a hard focus on yuri visual novels, anime, and manga (but occasionally I might dare to offer something different and more general like I used to). I can’t really post as much as I would like to, but maybe I can shoot for at least twice a week.
Anyways, I had actually wanted to start posting back when November started, but this post got pushed back by more than three weeks, haha. Ah…
Thanks for reading. Remy really appreciates you.
