It’s been four years. Back on Nov 5, 2013 I booted up my first stream, playing .hack//G.U. vol 1
Boy have things changed since then.
For my two-year anniversary I came back to the .hack series, finally starting up vol 2, and actually proceeded to finish it and vol 3 by December of that year.
And now, by some weird twist of fate, .hack//G.U. Last Recode came out the same weekend as my 4 year anniversary! 😮 What are the odds!?
And yet… I feel like this last year shouldn’t even count. I’ve barely been streaming more than once a month since my new job in May, I was missing for months at a time late last year. I’ve been so stressed out trying to make ends meet the ‘old fashioned’ way (aka a full time job), that I haven’t had the time or energy I want to devote to stream, or my Etsy, Patreon, etc.. And for that, I’m sorry.
At least once a month I go into a depressing spiral of “I should just give up streaming.” I should just close all my social media accounts and disappear off the face of the internet. I’ve done nothing but let myself down.
And then I do my monthly stream and the handful of you that show up and say hi renew my love of streaming and push me to keep going. And for that, I’m eternally grateful.
I don’t know that my time situation will change any time soon. But I’m happy to know no matter how long I’m gone, someone is always excited to see me stream. Even if it’s just a few hours of fishing in an old RPG. :3 Thank you.
