It ain’t much like me to vanish without a trace from this blog like that. I’ve put a ton of time and energy into the damned thing, more than enough to justify saying goodbye were I to have decided to abandon the project. So I hope you’ll take that to mean that my last three-plus weeks of cricket-tude were, in fact, incidental…
Due to a combination of high stress, poor diet, and motherfuckers constantly getting in the way of me getting what I want, I ended up in the hospital back in late February, and was only just released a few days ago, stabilized yet far from having made a complete recovery.
The details of my ordeal are manifold, and disturbing. I’ll not share them here as of yet, as I’ve still hardly processed most of them. Suffice it to say that this has got to have been the single most harrowing experience of my entire life, and I’m just happy (and goddamned lucky) to be alive.
As for the rest **gestures at everything** I’m not exactly sure when I’ll be back up to speed. I’ve got several podcast episodes on the back burner, along with a slew of bonus content what needs producing. But I can also hardly take a shit without having to stop and catch my breath right now, and I’m (some would say thankfully) recuperating far away from my studio at the moment. That will change soon enough, but to be frank, even if I was able to do so, I don’t think I could produce another episode of the show at the moment even if I wanted to.
Now would be a good time to mention that I did manage to get my last episode up on schedule before shit hit the fan, but because of the shit-fan-hitting I was not able to make a standard blog post for. Here’s the player; tell your friends!
If there’s a bright side to this whole ordeal, it’s that it’s forcing me to slow down a bit and think strategically about what I am and aren’t capable of, and how to make the former happen without continuing to dig myself an early grave. More on that later, too.
Meanwhile, imma get back to my latest bing run of Game Of Thrones, because what better thing to watch when you’re couch-locked than sixty-plus hours of treacherous white people and zombies and dragons?
