I'm not sure if many of you have noticed (I know a few of you have, and I appreciate that
), but I haven't been posting anything lately. I lurk mostly nowadays, and the messages just pile up in my inbox to the point where I don't even want to go through them. I leave a comment here and there and still fave stuff occasionally, but art is just not happening in my life lately.
You can blame my job for that. It is demanding, repetitive, monotonous, soul-sucking, meaningless, requires nearly 24/7 availability/reachability, and is causing me a multitude of mental and emotional health issues. I find it hard to want to do creative things. I would like to quit for my own sanity's sake, but I have no other job lined up (not for lack of trying!), and in this sucky economy where people consider themselves lucky just to have work, leaving just seems like a stupid thing to do. I keep thinking things will get better, but they don't. (Plus, I unfortunately still live with my folks, and you can imagine what they think of my wanting to quit. They give me the stink eye if I so much as mention I'm thinking
Anyway, I really don't have much to say, other than that if anyone was wondering why I don't post anything anymore...that's why.
Cheers to anyone who still watches me in spite of me being a dormant blob.
