Out of the Ordinary Update

Hello, my loves!

Well 2020 certainly has gone to Hell in a handbasket, hasn’t it? Global recognition of the struggles of the black community and those of indigenous peoples, acknowledging that there’s a global environmental crisis, and the reality that the pandemic isn’t a hoax to get Trump out of office certainly seems to have some people triggered.

The kind of people who love to throw around the word “libtard”, and start sentences with “I’m not racist, but”, and use their religion to justify why they are trying to dictate what decisions another person makes about their lives, even though it in no way affects them personally. But I digress.

Besides dealing with a barrage of ignorance on my personal Facebook over all the above controversies, my health hasn’t been the best. I’ve always been a little on the sickly side, however an inability to maintain my weight and a recent fainting spell has since landed me in the offices of a vascular surgeon, a cardiologist, and a neurologist in an effort to figure out what’s wrong with me. The only things I know for sure at the moment is that I have a Vitamin D deficiency and at least primary Raymond’s Phenomenon.

Needless to say my situation has changed significantly. A light work order has knocked me down to working only 10 to 15 hours a week and numerous doctor’s appointments have taken up a lot of my time. When I am home, I’m spending time with my son, keeping the house clean, trying to cook homemade meals more often, and then dealing with the clean up from that while also trying to start a small side business selling resin tumblers and art to supplement my income. Unfortunately, that’s left very little time for reading, writing, and photoshoots.

I’m in the process of trying to get back on track, but that means I’m going to have to change the way I do things. I’m not sure exactly what that means yet, but I hope we can find out together. What I can tell you is that I can’t afford to do the monthly giveaways anymore. Of course, there will still be giveaways on special occasions and Christmas, but monthly giveaways have become too much of a financial strain.

May’s fantasy art feature will still be posted in the next week or so, despite them being two months late and I have a couple of reviews to type up and a couple of articles I’m drafting. Just bear with me guys.

Wishing you all a happy, healthy day,
