Hoo, boy, this thing still exists

I got an email saying that the domain was going to expire not too long ago, and I didn’t want to give up the domain just yet.

Right now, the world is experiencing a global pandemic, the US is entering a period of depression and economic decline, and I still haven’t uploaded a podcast since FRIGGIN AUGUST OF LAST YEAR. Why? Haven’t had time to record one, honestly. Due to work and people constantly being around, I don’t have the privacy to record, and I also just didn’t have any ideas of what to record for a while. Then the new year came along, shit started to happen, and I got a bit lazy. After the pandemic started, and everyone was told to stay inside I’ve had less private time than usual. On top of that, my second job started back up and I’m working 9 hour days a lot of the time, so by the time I’m finished with work, people are home and I don’t have privacy anymore.

Everything is just bearing down on me and I don’t have any idea of what to record or when I can privately record. I don’t make enough to get an apartment to live in, and I don’t know anyone that would want to be my roommate. I’m hoping that soon I’ll come up with something to podcast about, so that I can re-start what I started a while ago. Maybe I need a co-host? But who would want to be my co-host?

Regardless of what ends up happening, I hope that I get back into doing what I enjoy, which is working with computers, podcasting, livestreaming, and not dealing with stupid people in a customer service job.

Anyways, thanks for reading. Stay safe in these wild times, and Thank You for reading.

My absence and upcoming projects

Hello everyone. If you’re wondering why I’ve been absent since May, it’s because I’ve been dealing with life. Specifically, I’ve been feeling down in general, and I’ve not had many ideas for my podcast. Along with that, I’ve been working at a new job that I started in early June, my family got a new puppy, and I haven’t had much privacy to record in either my room or my basement, neither of which are great places to record in to be honest. Along with these, I just haven’t been feeling motivated to create any episodes, nor have I thought of any good topics for content.

I feel like at some point, I will get over this, but until that day, this site will probably be pretty barren. I am working on other projects, which might come up here, but they are mostly personal projects that have no real place on the internet. Projects like calculator applications for a Ti-83 Plus that assist with my job, or a Disney Parks-themed D&D (which I use loosely) setting, or how I’m going to move a large, heavy desk out of my bedroom and get rid of it.

So for now, I just want to say that I hope whomever is reading this is doing well, that I promise to make new content soon (since I am planning things, but the things are in their infancy right now), and that I will not back down, just… I will slow down.

Thank you,

Sorry, no new episode this week, or next

Due to scheduling (both personal, as well as my school schedule), I haven’t had time to record an episode for this week, and I am going to be out of town and without a microphone all weekend starting on Thursday, so I will not be able to record an episode for next Monday. I’m planning on something good for the following week, so stay posted!
