Still not feeling very well. Recovering, but the recovery is going a bit harsh, it's leaving me drained out of energy and motivation. It's costing me time amongst things, and I'm having a hard time catching up with things.
I feel like I need to make a journal on this for a moment, even though there's several others I need to make. But this one should be here to give y'all a heads-up on things, how I may be very slow on stuff.
Like, I already feel terrible for all the notes, mails, comments, and more that I've yet to get back to. Doesn't help I'm so inclined to be thorough, things take me longer than I "feel" they should.
Honestly also the tasks have been stacking up slowly, slow but steadily over the last 3 months due to different health changes. Finishing some, only to get several more tasks in return which I then couldn't finish all in time before the next one shows up. I haven't been able to pick things back up properly for over a week now. Being sick hit me longer than expected.
While this counts for most, but I specifically do want to mention anyone who has send a note or e-mail about commissions (or other important stuff),
my apologies for my lack of response. This is actually something that became way slower than I liked in the weeks before Brony-Fair. I am really thankful for all your messages, and I hope you all know that I will be getting back to every single one of you. I have to get through my backlog, and will mostly be going by the oldest first.
In the meantime I have put my commission status on open/pending
for now. Because I have quite a few to go through still, I don't know what my entire commission schedule may be for the coming weeks/months. But I'm always open for questions or other messages for me. Just keep in mind that I'll mostly work from oldest to newest.
I have been putting things off a bit more than I should and wanted, for varying reasons. Trying to figure out details to get a more thorough view on things. As I'm also continuously figuring out my commissions and looking for ways to improve things.
My other main aspect I would say is my stream schedule. It's been fairly empty since my return from Brony-Fair. I'm sorry about that folks. It's a two sided thing (or more) that makes them important for me as well. Almost all my art (from my gallery) is done during streams, this includes commissions. So whenever I have a commission, or other things to make, stream time means production time. But it's also just a place for fun, information, inspiration, motivation, apples, bananas, etc. It's one of the few direct social interactions I have since... school. So there's that as well.I'll probably not stream today
Also because streaming while sick was heavier than expected last Saturday. I hope I can recover fully soon, at least the coughing which interferes a lot. It leaves me out of energy, concentration and heck I also need to be careful not to bruise my ribs which is slightly weird but it happened to me several times in the past!
Anyhow, I didn't want to make this too long of a journal. I hope it gives more of an idea of what's going on on my side. It also helps give myself a better idea, as writing this makes me think of all of the things going on, but from a side view. Things being a bit clearer.
I need to be careful, because I'm really overburdening myself from what I can tell. The amount of things ongoing, pending, planned. I'm happy I can get things done within some deadlines. Need to still do stuff like taxes for example! (High priority, this week) Had done some important preparations for Bronycon these last days. Need to get my financial administration updated properly again which will take me several days, still have to unpack my stuff from Brony-Fair as well, amongst which my left-over prints which I want to try sell online.
So much stuff! I need a secretary, or little slave monkey... er servants.
Hope y'all are doing al righty. This was my little monkey update on things that took me a chunk of time to write, because I take so much time writing... which makes sense writing this much.
PS: Still writing my Brony-Fair experience journal as well!
