You know it has been a long time when you look at your last blog post and think to yourself… “Hell it’s about time.” Twenty points if you get that reference. If you’re reading this then you’re probably wondering where I’ve been all this time. Those who watched my videos know I had been jobless for a while. As some of us know being jobless for a long period of time does things. It can make a person lazy and depressed. You forget about things and stop caring.

I stopped caring for a while.

To be honest I think I would’ve been worse off if I didn’t have my fiancé or cats. They would keep me company because I didn’t want to go out. I tried to convince myself I couldn’t afford to drop money on games, restaurant food, or even a coffee.

The videos were an attempt to do something with myself. It worked for a while. Then like everything else I tried to continue doing. I stopped.

However in April I was hired as a lab manager at a university for two neuroscience labs.

So far it has been pretty good. I’ve met a lot of nice people and have been fairly productive.

I ran a dungeons and dragons game for the first time in six months. That being said I was a little rusty, but I have the tabletop spark again.

I’m also painting again. Well I never stopped completely, but now I do it regularly.

So things are good, but they could be better. For example French Fry is on my desk. I wish he wasn’t.

Seriously though I don’t want to come home and veg out on the couch. There are so many things I could get done. I want to restart my podcast, but I have to find a partner that I can meet frequently enough and click with.

Talk Days will resume next week with two videos a week. There will be a blog post every week and the GM Tails comic will be post every Tuesday and Thursday.
