Sharing this public, as some people can't see it apparently:
Hey all - I haven't been around much and obviously there are a few things I need to address. I've been having some issues on my end and frankly I haven't been handling them in a very good fashion. I won't bore you with all the details, some of it is related to depression (go figure) but the larger part of it is just plain old me not dealing with things the way I should: long story short, the bulk of my absence and what not is because I went back to working a day job...which in normal circumstances wouldn't be an issue, but in my case it involves a shitload of commute time. Upwards of six hours a day on public transit requiring me to be up at 4:30 and I generally don't get home until 9pm or so.
Anyway, there are two outstanding things I want to address:
1.) Yes, there are some people who are still waiting for me to send the stuff they purchased from me (again). I should have figured that selling a bunch of stuff at one time would work out as well as it did in the past but desperation made me dump a bunch of things and...I didn't follow up. Anyway, I still have the items that need to go out. So here's how I plan to handle that. I can ship the items out, one per day, over the next week or so (I don't have wheels and I need to cart them one at a time ot the post office near my job). Or I will happily refund the money. If you purchased an item from me please let me know which you prefer and I'll work it out.
2.) Freelance work - yes, I am miserably behind on a number of gigs I have on my plate. This really does simply boil down to the fact that right now I have had enough time to work and sleep during the week. That said, I need to carve out a bit of time now and then to knock some things out and make progress. I am in the process of getting my car fixed - which will help the commute - and after that, finding an apartment closer to my job. Once the latter is done I'll be capable of getting back up to speed with my freelance work.
Anyway - that's the long and short of it. I'm a fuckup and...I fucked up. Again. Moving out here has been bumpier than I expected, but - fingers crossed - I should have something resembling a normal life back soon.
I'm not asking for anyone's forgiveness - you don't owe it to me, and frankly I'm aware that all this is my fault. I should have addressed this sooner but...I was tired, exhausted, and chose to deal with it in a very unproductive manner...by avoiding the issue(s).
Anyway, that's where I'm at.
