Site Progress & Personal Update: July 2021

Well, last month certainly did not go as planned. For those unaware, I was hospitalized last month for acute pancreatitis, and I needed to have my gallbladder surgically removed. The hospital stay was for four days, and then I spent over a week after that trying to get over the spike in depression and anxiety resulting in this traumatic event. Pancreatitis is incredibly painful. Before I even got to the hospital, I had to spend five hours waiting in agonizing pain before I got admitted. These five hours were split between waiting to get into the Urgent Care Facility, them telling me to go to the Emergency Room, and then waiting to get into the Emergency Room.

Between the initial pain, and the inevitably pain following surgery, I’ll just say that I learned precisely why some people get addicted to morphine. And then there was a severe spike in depression and anxiety that occurred right after I got discharged, which prevented me from putting out any new content of course. Anyway, I should hopefully be back on track now assuming I don’t need to have any other internal organs removed.

So, if one could not tell by my most recent article and the fact that I’m incessantly posting about it on social media again, I’m getting back into politics! And now that I told you that, it probably won’t be a few months until the next political piece, which is meant to be a preview of the most important elections of 2022 from a progressive perspective. Given how much shit there is to cover, it will likely be a long piece as well.

As for my other plans, I have finished all the necessary research for The Disturbing Video Games Iceberg, and it will be complete whenever I get around to making the image. It’s just a matter of finding the right template actually. As for game reviews, the set schedule is basically the same as before. The only review I managed to get out last month is my Futanari Quest review, so anything else I said I had planned still applied. Next few reviews will be Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;birth2: Sister’s Generation, BRK├ľUT, and Celestial Crossing. I’m still not done with Majikoi yet, so I don’t know when that will be, but I do intend for it to be before the Maggot Baits review.

I also have a few more Impressions & Commentary pieces planned, for those who remember that I did those at some point. The same goes for Amazing VGM pieces. The plus side to having weeks without a game to review is that I get a bit more variety in the stuff I could write as filler. I don’t know what I’m going to do yet, but it should be interesting, and I intend to have at least one piece out each week.

I feel like I should post more than just “here’s the stuff I’m working on” before ending this piece, but I currently am feeling kinda drained. I’m just trying to get this out so I have a Site Update piece up, and I have no idea what else I’m even going to do. I’m not even talking about this piece either, I mean in general. It’s even worse because my mind has focused in on politics, and it is a LOT harder to write about politics when I’m this emotionally drained.

So uhhh, I guess it’s patron shout out time. Special thanks to Nora Codes, Brittany Eakin, Krista, Rin Marina, Jimbolance, IceTheRetroKid, Sam, Kelly Gallagher, Wendy Gowak, D Inacio, and Dia. With the addition of Nora Codes’ pledge, I’m now at $97 a month, which means I may need to figure out how I’ll determine which game I’ll review in celebration of when I reach $100 a month. And again, I want to make it clear how much I appreciate those of you that support me. You’re all so fucking amazing and I love each and every one of you. Granted that applies to anyone who supports me in any way and not even just financially, but I want to make sure the people who support me know they are appreciated.

If you are interested in supporting me and this blog, then please consider pledging to my Patreon if you have a couple of bucks to spare.

Anyway, I think that should do it for this site Update. I am hopeful that I feel a bit more energized throughout this month than I am right now.
