Yo party people, how’s it?
Sooo, aside from occasional lurking sessions I’ve pretty much been AWOL from the internet since, um, November? So okay first there was pre-holidays and then there was holidays and then there was post-holidays and things kinda got away from me and keeping up with everything became kinda overwhelming (DUDE, adulthood is exhausting y’all). I’ve been operating at approximately negative 5 billion on the creative production scale and rather than the internet inspiring me as it usually does - seeing all the awesome, creative things people were doing became stressful. I started feeling more and more like the hole I was in was in was inescapable.
That thing happened then - that thing where, on top of being stressful, it started to get embarrassing to check in because I knew I didn’t have it in me to respond to messages and requests. Add to that the lack of anything to show for my radio silence and - BAM! - one vicious cycle of guilt-ridden avoidance. Very healthy. Very mature.
ANYWAY, the point is - I’m pretty sure there’s a point in here somewhere - I’m trying to get back on the wagon. So please be patient while I try to sort through my backlog of messages and notes AND while I learn to be kinder and more patient with myself. I’ve started making things again, so there’s progress!
PS We should probably ALL work on being kinder and more patient with ourselves right? People are amazing.
