Hey y’all. It’s been a while since I’ve posted regularly on here, and I wanted to explain what’s been going on and where I’m at mentally.
To be honest, I’m kinda burned out on the whole blogging thing. I’ve done like 20 different drafts on various topics, but I can’t seem to finish any of them.
A lot happened in my personal life over the past year or so, and it’s been hard. I got laid off when the pandemic hit, then got another job, but had to quit that one after a few months because of a toxic work environment. My mom had some health scares, and a close friend got COVID although they are both thankfully better now. Then in February, my dog Muffin passed away. I know in a lot of ways I’ve actually been lucky, but it’s still been a lot to deal with.
And maybe it’s just me, but talking about my hobbies on the internet is not fun for me anymore. There’s too much toxic, negative behavior. I’m glad the circle I follow on WordPress is not like that, but it’s still a bummer, you know?
Anyway, all this is to say that I’m done for now. Like my favorite Shonen anime, Starting Life From Zero is going on indefinite hiatus. Sorry that it is this way, but I’d rather just take a break than put out some mediocre posts that I don’t even want to write, you know?
That said, I have one more post I’ve been working hard on. It’s by far the longest I’ve ever written, and personally, it’s my favorite. I’m still editing and putting some finishing touches on it, but I hope you will enjoy my thesis on Xenoblade Chronicles 2 this weekend.
Thank you everybody who has followed me, liked, or commented, over the past two years. Your thoughts have kept me going through these difficult times. I’m truly grateful for your time and attention, and I hope my little blog has kept you entertained for at least a little while. I love you all.
