Hey guys, so this post serves a twofold purpose. Firstly to just apologise for my general uselessness at being around online lately. I started a new job at the start of the month, and it's a job that requires me to communicate in my second language, which I haven't used regularly in about a decade, so that's been adding an extra level of mental tiredness I think, as I get used to functioning bilingually again. I mean, it's good because the quality of my Welsh was straight-up depressing and it's something I want
to fix, but it's also tiring and tied up with a lot of feelings of inadequacy and...stuff.
We're also less than a month out from Vidukon, and it's actually taking up more of my time and attention than I'd've thought, though you know, at least it's going towards (HOPEFULLY) an awesome convention at the end of it.
Plus K finally returned to work a few months ago, and for various reasons THIS month has been really heavy on the work front for him with a lot of extra hours he's been trying to handle rather than asking for a reduction. He's been brilliant, really, handling it really well, but it has been hard for him at times and he's needed some more time and attention and stuff, just...one more source of stress and business and stuff.
I think that's part of it is just that I'm tired
a lot. So many changes, new things, slightly scary things, things that require mental attention - when I do
have free time I find myself just zoning out and switching off and not having the mental focus to engage in detailed conversation or write updates for here or what-have-you. Suddenly weeks have gone past. o.O I'm sure it'll all even out eventually.
For now, I apologise for my erratic presence - but know I love you all! I'm hopelessly out of date with my flist, so if I've missed anything important, please DO let me know!
Meanwhile - in an attempt to generate some content and have some lighthearted fun, for the interested - I'm going to do that Mass Effect 30 Day Meme! Cus that should be manageable, right?
So yeah, I'm gonna try and actually do it! A post a day for 30 days! And sorry to anyone who doesn't care about Mass Effect (i.e. most of you!), but who knows, it may also inspire me to actually post other stuff about what's going on with my life, or like, be in touch with you all and things. *crosses fingers*
HERE WE GO. ( 30 Days - List of Days )( Day 1! )
