Apologies for Not Posting

Yeah, so, it’s been about four weeks since my last post, even though I was trying to post something new about every week or so. This was entirely unintended. A lot of IRL stuff came up and it’s been taking all my focus lately, and I haven’t had much time for writing. I love doing this though, and I want to get back to it ASAP.

I have a part-time job now, and I’ve been working 15 hours a week. I’ve also been going to the gym two or three days a week, trying to get back in shape after living a sedentary lifestyle for most of the pandemic. So I’ve been focusing a lot on other goals.

In addition, I’ve also had a lot of life problems that got in the way. The first was when my housemate who’s a total man-child thought it would be really funny to steal my wireless bridge that I was using to connect to the Internet. I had to order another one online and I still haven’t gotten it to work for some reason, so I have to call tech support after the weekend is over to figure out why the new device isn’t showing up on the network, despite the fact that it says it’s connected. Needless to say, it’s been a lot harder to get online lately, and I’ve been using the web mostly through my Android phone, which isn’t exactly ideal for writing.

In the last week, I’ve been dealing with an upper respiratory infection that has affected my cognitive abilities and stamina and forced me to put my job and workout plans on hold (no one wants me coming in to work or the gym when I’m showing symptoms of COVID-19). I think I was pushing myself a little too hard going from a lifestyle where I just sat at home all day to working three days a week and going to the gym three other days and having only Sunday off, a transition that took place within a two or three week time period. It was a very sudden shift, and my system might not have been ready for it, so my immune system was compromised, causing me to get sick.

In any case, I’m going to try to post more consistently moving forward, because I love what I do, and I’ll try not to allow the IRL stuff to get in the way anymore. My man-child housemate has since moved out, and hopefully I can get my network fixed and be back online soon, and my illness seems to be slowly getting better. Hope to see you all soon. 🙂
