Slump Central, CAN. Population: Me.

Haven't really written anything in a while, either here, or on my thesis. �And actually generally speaking, I haven't done too much productive in the last little while either. �I think this may turn into a rant. �Here's me promising no edits.�

Every time I sit down to write an article for Destructoid, I find myself getting really annoyed at all of the shit that I read daily on the front page articles. �Don't get me wrong, there is nothing I love more than reading the C-Blogs and their thoughtful comments, but when they cross over with those who only lurk the Front Page? �Holy Hannah Montana...it's almost terrifying. �Why do people say these things to other human beings?�

Asshats got my AC:Brotherhood CE stolen. Last chance honkeys...�

Anyways, I think I'm about done here. �Sorry if this seemed like a bit of a drag, but I don't really have any other outlet for these kind of things, and it's been weighing on me lately. I wish I could figure out what's causing this slump. �Maybe I have too much on the go, and I'm having trouble focusing on something, because my mind is whirling through the bajillion things that actually NEED to get done in my life. �

New terrifying job starting in two weeks;�thesis is due soon; have to learn Russian before I can submit the thesis so that I can pass the translation exam;�my wedding is coming up shortly; my company Gamework in on some sort of hiatus while everyone sorts their crap out (which has allowed other game-tourney companies to swoop in with the momentum we started);�even after all these things are done and my Masters is finished I still will have no job prospects; have several weddings that I have to DJ soon, which are a load of stress; and on top of it all, I just found out I have to�meet with a neurosurgeon�shortly because I have a cist in my spinal cord and my brain is putting excess pressure on itself and my spine. �

Holy shit...after writing that all out, I'm actually wondering if I maybe need to take a week...or two off from life. �Thanks for listening everyone, I think even writing all that out as an exercise was beneficial for me.

You know I love you all,
