I blame my lack of activity recently on how utterly exhausted I've felt constantly over the last couple weeks. Between my work schedule, my attempts at maintaining a social life, and trying to navigate all the difficulties that life has to offer, it's seemingly drained me of all energy. I feel like I'm just now getting to catch up. It's weird too, because I've been getting the same (if not more) sleep as I have for the last 6 months and my eating patterns haven't changed. I'm okay with this phase of exhaustion passing by and never returning.
My PC has finally been upgraded and is in a fully functioning condition once more. I went from a GTX 660 to a GTX 970 for my graphics and also upgraded my RAM and internal storage. It's ran perfectly so far, just hoping it continues to do so.
Since my PC is working again, I really want to get back into Twitch streaming! I never really got started in the past, only a random stream here or there, but it's a challenge I truly want to take on. I've noticed lately that I've been having a hard time with a lot of issues that are related to social anxiety.. My hope is that streaming might help to relieve some of the issues I've been having and just overall help me with my social skills (which are quite lacking sometimes).
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can land a promotion at work. It's a position I've applied for in the past and was declined, but this time around things seem to be leaning more in my favor. My Assistant Store Manager supports me getting the position, as do several other people, and I feel that I've proven myself capable of handling the responsibilities that will come with the title. I just have to convince my General Store Manager and (corporate) District Manager that I'm capable, as well as hope that I have outshone the other two interviewees.
I've rambled enough. Hope everyone in the community has been well! <3
