Hello everyone. As most of you have probably noticed, this month has been met by a lot of inactivity from me, which genuinely blows because I was planning on doing so much art this month which I never got around to. As some of you might know, a fair few months ago I had been busy with helping my mother move and the prospect of buying a new apartment. The reason for these moves were to be closer to my grandmother, whom ever since her brother-in-law's death (They have been as close as siblings ever since they were young, and more so since my grandaunt died.) has had a declining health. Physically she is fine, but mentally... not so much.
I like to think that she is just going senile, but unfortunately that isn't the case, and despite myself I find it hard to actually be able to sit in the computer and art much in any way, shape or form. It's little things such as talking to her every day yet having her tell me "Oh it's been so long since we last spoke, you need to stop by more often", and the like. I understand it probably doesn't sound very imposing or as if it shouldn't affect much, but this woman is my closest family member, and it is breaking my heart enough to see her like this for it to be affecting me in my personal life. It may be premature, but I am dreading having a day when she stares right through me because she can no longer remember who I am, something that seems to be closing in as she keeps referring to me by her sister's name. I know I am at this point rambling and no doubt making it worse than it probably is, but it's just been getting so much worse these past two months that I guess rambling is all I can do at the moment.
To those who do read this, I am very sorry if this semi-hiatus in any way affects you. Especially if you are among those I have ongoing rps with or I am in a group with. To those I have rps with, I am afraid I will have to ask for a little patience, as unfortunately it has been very hard to get into character for responses. Not impossible, but it really depends on my current mood swing. To those in TWG, do not fret, most of the next iteration of FireClan's plot is complete and will hopefully be out this following assignment if all goes well. In other words if my computer doesn't decide that it's too good for my internet connection, in which case it will be out within the first week regardless but you all get extensions because that would be on me.
Once more, I am very sorry for any inconveniences this might cause. I do feel some time away from it all - or rather from most - would be good for me though, and I would like to be able to come back and kick those submissions and art blocks in the behind. I'll let you all know when I am fully back, and thank you very much for your patience in advance.
