Hey Spacers! It’s been too long. I wanted to write and keep you in the loop. 2013 was a tumultuous year for me. I lost my job, I lost one of my pets, I had nerve damage in my drawing hand for two months, I got a new job, a new ferret, and things seemed to even out. But around September, I began getting anxiety attacks, and through the winter, up to now, I’m trying to cope with a bad depression. I chalk it up to a lot of things happening that I wasn’t prepared for. Y’know, I had it pretty soft til then, and losing my job really rocked my boat. It just took a while to sink in.
But even though I don’t live near many of my friends, I have my family around, for which I’m grateful. I’m trying lots of things to help me get out of my funk, including writing this note. It can be a terrible thing, but it will get better. I just need time. Thanks for reading.
One thing that for definitely cheered me up was this birthday card from my good friend Brian Emling! You’ve gotta see this!
