Ack! Sorry for the lack of updates lately, but I’m still alive!
I try to leave my personal life out of website stuff, but hey, I’m only human… and when my personal life begins to affect updates, I think it’s only fair to let everyone know what’s up.
Nothing drastic, but due to the Human Malware Virus going on lately, I haven’t been working… and so over the last few months I’ve been spending all the free time I have in trying to find employment. Unfortunately no employer has bitten in that time, which wasn’t too bad while I was getting pandemic unemployment assistance. But now that program has officially ended this past week, I’m now in a situation where no employer is biting COMBINED with the not getting unemployment assistance. Fortunately I was prepared for this so my financial situation isn’t dire, but it does affect my ability to post on updates as often as I’d like to.
Don’t get me wrong, this is not me complaining, or demanding that the government give me more free money. Just that, clearly I haven’t been doing enough to get my ass into a new job, so I need to pour myself more into this than I was doing before. This will—albeit temporarily—affect site updates for just a little bit.
That said, I’m trying to at least find things to update in the background so that the site isn’t COMPLETELY dead. Like, I have an article in the wings about the general history of Wizards of the Coast’s tenure of the Pokémon TCG from 1999 to 2003 and what exactly they could (and couldn’t) so, as well as discovered another Wizard’s-era Pokémon TCG .PDF file with a bunch of neat artwork unique to it, and of course I still have a LOT of updates left for the Card-E sections as well… so I still have plenty to work with here. The only real issue is trying to find the time and energy to work on them in between job searching!
OH! One NEW thing I actually can share now is… remember last post when I said that I’d share the fake card I sent to Teslalyte for his birthday, but only after he’s seen it? Well… he saw it, and he loved it! So here it is for everyone else to enjoy:
Awww… isn’t that cute? I just hope you enjoy it too.
Anyways, that’s all I have to share right now. Sorry for not updating lately, but I’d be lying if the whole process of finding a new job isn’t a soul-sucking task of rejection after rejection after rejection… but I just gotta make sure that I don’t let it get to me. I need to stay strong and never surrender! And once I get that new job and the money rolls in, I know my life will be so much better for all the suffering I’m going through right now. Please with my luck, and soon the good times will return. Send me a HUZZAH! when you can, ok?
