Well, we're officially a week into the new year and I figured it was high time I worked up the energy to put out some sort of new journal entry >w>;
First of all, happy New Year, everyone! I hope the holidays (if you celebrated them) have treated you well, and that nobody got too banged up from the festivities.
(y'know, a broken leg or a fortunately minimally unfortunate accident with a blender that didn't involve the loss of any bodyparts but did involve stitches D: *things that happened to people I know this past holiday season D:* )
That all said, it's been... "rough" here, for me.
As always, I do apologize for the lack of activity on my part, but I feel if I try to go too much into detail on it, I get lost in the words and it's hard for anyone to make heads or tails out of what the hell it was that I just said and they just "tl;dr" it. ( which is often bad for me actually D: )
Yeah, I have a journal I've been trying to write up ever since my grandfather died back in October and we had his memorial in November. I've added updates to it, but never finished it, as more things happened that I wanted to fill you all in on.
In addition to that, I've a journal I've been trying to put together practically since September about game design stuff (because I pretty much have my game projects sorted out that I want to do, but I want to do a poll over which people would be most interested in seeing worked on, for a multitude of reasons)
I sort of feel now like that journal should be split into two journals now, so that's like three journals now that I've been trying to get out for a while now. (or maybe I'm miscounting, but that's beside the point)
But, none of that matters right now really, because... well... I guess the most important point of it all is that my health just sucks. (especially for the past several years)
I've found a doctor who has really been able to help me out with this stuff and my health IS getting better (the fact that I'm even getting this journal out is testament to that) but the fact is, treatment is kind of slow, and not the cheapest thing in the world, and while I really appreciate my parents' help and support here, I can't depend on them forever but I can't exactly do that much on my own right now either.
So... I don't know.. I've mentioned plans about this before (because there ARE things I can do even as I am now, and I hate to ask for stuff), but..
I don't know. I've been suggested to try opening up a Patreon account for myself, (hopefully with lots of incentives to contribute X3; ) but I'm just trying to think positively here and it's a little hard at the moment D: I just know my sister has a friend who had a disease and she's been able to run a blog and run on donations for the cause to help with treatment but I'd feel bad for asking anything even close to that.
So... I don't know. If I DID open up a Patreon account (later to be a funding acct for game development, kind of like how the ero flash game Breeding Season has a Patreon account?), do you think you or anyone you know might be able to help out, or if you could help spread the word? I guess, if nothing else, I kind of need a signal boost here.
I just feel kind of lost for what to do here and I feel bad for not getting those journals out earlier.
Just... Yeah. It's kind of frustrating D:
