So, as some of you might or might not know, the reason for my inactivity is that I had a terrible flu a few weeks back. I was completely bedridden and had zero motivation to do anything but play Pokemon all day whilst dreaming of the day I could breathe through my nose again. Slowly but surely, I got better and better...then another problem struck...
My mental health took another kick to the groin and I found myself, yet again, unmotivated. With a doctor's visit and update on medication, got better again. Yay!
So I live in South-Africa, right? And our Government is the poopiest poop, right? They got this thing called 'load-shedding', which means they shut off the power to large chunks of the country, one chunk at a time, to save power. And the best part is: they very rarely let us know when that is going to happen. So one minute you could be drawing in PS, on Skype, watching TV or whatever and POOF. Darkness. Also doesn't help that it's usually at night. In the winter. While we're facing a cold front. *Sobs while laughing* We've invested in a generator for those dark times, so at least we have some
Oh, but dear friends, that isn't all.
They've been working on the power in our neighborhood recently, switching it on and off at random times. 'What about the generator?' you ask? WELP. We can't turn it on, in fear of electrocuting a random person working on the power lines.
Lastly, whenever I do
get the chance to use PS, my tablet driver dies, taking hours to fix it. Not to mention my little cintiq is getting on in years and it's connection cable it starting to fritz out on my from time to time.
One step forward and two steps back, wouldn't you say?
And yet, I am not as angry as I should be. X'D
I mean, it pisses me off, but I can't help but see the silver lining waaaaay in the distance. I might sound depressed in the explanations above but I'm really not. Annoyed, perhaps...but not depressed. >w<
What upsets me the most is the fact that, because of all of that^, I've been unable to be active on here and RP or talk with my dearest friends. Or post art for that matter. I fear that every time I start talking to people or really get into the zone on a digital drawing, that the power might cut out any second.
So this is just an explanation of why I've been inactive, and an apology to those who wonder what the hell has happened to me >w<'
Bear with my uncontrollable circumstances~
See ya (hopefully) soon, dudes!
