Hey lovely! Doing well! Work had me on quite the hiatus from drawing for a while. Been mostly getting creative juices out by knitting and painting miniatures for board games. But I am on vacation with the family right now and my sister in law really wanted me to design her tattoo… so here I am! Working on another drawing now for my nephew, and really enjoying it. How are you?
Well, I got made an Admin a while ago XD So I rock the gold wings XD Hahah- I visited Bogusred just before covid hit which was super fun too- turns out they two of use get along great in person too <3 She visited me in NZ too I'm working on a new comic slowly right now of my character, Silvyr (I have him as a PDARPG character too ), which is going to be fun. I'm just getting my health a little bit better before I get seriously into preping So things are moving along for me I hope you're doing ok.
Congrats on admin! You are an obvious choice for the job. BR will do well with you by her side. 😊 I wish I could make it out to visit people. Super jealous. Sounds like you are in a good place (except for health - hope that is on the upswing as well!)
I am well! In a better place than I have been in years, actually. Decreased my work load to 80%, which has me much more mentally healthy and happy.
Hopefully this time I will stick around for a few weeks at least. Trying not to ghost.
I... have the passion, but I haven't had the health / energy. Since setting PD up for the ARPGs, BR has needed extra help to run the site. I started off a moderator, but then with the ARPG we needed another person with administrator powers. I don't have authority / training to do code level stuff, but I can slay spammers and do a lot of the admin for running the ARPGs and other stuff I couldn't do before as a moderator. A lot I can do on my own, but I've instigated a lot of filter changes recently with all the new members joining, and posting non-ARPG art that needs special treatment. It's good to have the power to be able to help her like this- specially now with the baby bump <3
I'm glad you're taking care of yourself now- 80% drop in work is a lot. I can't imagine what your load was like before that for 80% drop to get you to a doable load Actually... I sort of can cause I loaded myself up to maximum capacity with work and social groups. It's taken a good 10 years to recover from my 20s, but like... I am TuT I'm really committed to getting stronger again.
If you post art or not, we're happy to have you around regardless. PD has a Discord- perhaps that will help keep the energy flow going?
I am so happy for you. I just hope you can get those energy levels up! Mental health is soooo important. ❤️ I did the overload thing for years too - actually I only stopped recently and am starting to finally recover now. Not 80% drop in workload, I went from full time to 80% time, so I work 4 days instead of 5. 😆 I work a lot, but not enough that I would have enough to do if I dropped 80%! 🤣
