So…would you believe that this is the first time that I have posted anything in my profile since the site got updated?

Because it is.

Nine months since my last journal entry. Nine..months. Jesus. People have babies in that span of time. That is a long-ass time, considering I’ve stated (more than once) that I think of RT as a kind of second home. So, why did I go away in the first place? Well, I guess I just thought that I needed some time away from home.

I had been visiting Rooster Teeth pretty much every day for five years, and I thought that I needed a break. When the big update happened, I thought that would be a good time to step away for a while.

Then, I got distracted. Shit, as shit so often does, began to pile up. Eventually, going back to RT just became an afterthought while I dealt with other things in my life.

Also, I have a tendency to put things off, anyway; case in point, I had originally planned to write this journal entry on New Year’s Day.

But I’m back, more or less, and I do plan to start being more active in the future. And since I sort of dropped off the face of the earth, I figured a good first step is to write this to let any concerned parties know that I am neither:

  • Dead
  • Incapacitated
  • Being held for ransom
  • Sucked into a trans-dimensional portal to become a plaything of the Elder Gods for all eternity
  • Transformed into a frog, newt, snake, or any other small, slimy entity by a warlock with a grudge
  • I can’t think of another funny dilemma

Taking that time away was weird at first, but ultimately, it was something I needed to do. Too much of anything, even a good thing, is bad. Looking back, I can see that I actually was addicted to Rooster Teeth, and it was starting to interfere with my life. The past few months since I dropped out have essentially been a period of withdrawal and recovery.

So while I do want to be more active, and will post more in the future, I have resolved to not let the things I love control my life. Anything can become habit forming if you let it; the better something is, the more addictive it can be. And that is why it is essential to take everything in moderation.

That being said, it is good to be back!

Until next time!
