An Apology

I have not been myself lately. Or more accurately, I've not been the version of myself I want to be.

I've been quite stressed for some time, and over that time it has been progressively, but steadily, grinding me into someone that I hardly recognize and don't much like. It has also wrought havoc on my health, leaving me weak, gaining weight, and now looking at skyrocketing blood pressure.

Well, a wise guy once said, "When you find you're digging youself into a hole-- stop digging!" So that's what I intend to do. Today, I stop digging.

Attitude will be adjusted. Thoughts and behaviors will be examined and modified. I will find the me I want to be and start moving in that direction.

In the meantime, I apologize for my behavior of late. I'm not normally by nature a ranty guy. I'm not normally by nature a complainy guy. I'm not normally by nature an angry guy.

I'm sorry if I've come off ranty/complainy/angry lately, and I'm sorry if it's put you off. I'm going to fix it, and I'm going to fix me.

Thanks for listening.

Convention Plans: Midwest Furfest

I have taken a leap of faith and registered for Midwest Furfest 2012, November 16-18 in Chicago. The leap of faith is that I’ll have vacation time again by then– various unanticipated personal crises have conspired to put me in the red on that score recently, but with 4-5 months to catch up and save up, hopefully I’ll be all right. I also went ahead and booked a hotel room.

The dealer room is full, which means I’ll have to try for the artist alley. The last time I was at MFF (two? three? venues ago), the dealer room always sucked and the artist alley was the place to be, anyhow. I’m told by various reputable sources that it’s much better these days, but that the artist alley is also just fine, so we’ll see how it goes.

Besides the fact that I haven’t been there in several years (which is itself reason enough to go), MFF will be filling in for both Dragon*Con and Further Confusion for me. With both of those officially not happening, I imagine that I’ll be kinda jonesing for a con by that point.

That also means there will be a biiiiig empty space between MFF and AC 2013 that will want filling. I’m not sure what will go there, yet.
