I was planning this as a v-log, which I’ll still do later this week. However, I did want to post something so you all knew I was still around. 2021 was that kind of year, what with me getting sick from who knows what and then needing surgery to remove a hernia. It hasn’t helped that over the last few days I’ve really been feeling terrible. Dreams are by nature a bit weird, they only exist in our subconscious or wherever (I’m not anywhere close to being a dream or brain expert) but over the last few days my dreams have felt…”creepy” isn’t the right word, but there’s been a certain unsettling atmosphere to them that would leave me feeling disconnected during the day, like I was wearing my body instead of inhabiting it. I don’t know if it was the weather, which has been unusually warm and wet for the end of December and start of January, or some other issue, which is why I need a few more days to pull myself together. I’m still feeling a bit iffy and frankly it’s a bit scary (I’m not sure if this is mental, medical, or spiritual but with my luck it’s all three) but at least last night I didn’t have that problem. Maybe I just need to get out of this house and do something? Between my own medical issues and the continuing 2020 plague panic I really haven’t gone out much on top of not having the money to go anywhere or anything to do if I did. Even an introverted homebody like myself has limits and I think lately I’ve gone way past those limits, which may be part of my problem as well. All this is why the v-log didn’t get made as well as a few things I wanted to discuss in it not getting done. Once I do those the v-log will happen. I just need a few extra days now thanks to all this.

So if you’re reading this at The Clutter Reports I should have an extra posting for you this week which is the v-log and maybe nothing to report outside of pulling down the Christmas decorations. If you’re reading this at BW Media Spotlight there will (depending on how the mental health thing goes) still be the next Chapter By Chapter review of Star Trek: Prime Directive as the book is nearly done. Expect a full summary book report at The Clutter Reports when that happens. If you’re reading this at The Tronix Tumblr…sorry if this posted more than once; I’ll fix it and if the full post doesn’t come up I’ll post the full thing there. My news really won’t affect the Tumblr much but the other two sites and my YouTube channel will.

The short version is that this year I’m going to be doing a bit more assessing, though I do want to get at least some of the creative projects I was denied doing in 2021 (either due to the aforementioned medical issues or as a side effect of recovery and finding the energy) accomplished in 2022. It depends on how and when I get sick again, so this is less a “I’m going to” and more “I’m going to try”. The assessment stuff in action will be more visible at The Clutter Reports than BW Media Spotlight because that’s just the nature of the sites. A lot of the assessment involves the physical junk around me, but you’ll see more results at BW and I’ll try to keep folks updated. It will all be in the v-log when I get it done.

So I hope your year is starting off well and I’m hoping to resume operations before the month is out. I just have to deal with some mental health issues (and hopefully no other ones) and pull myself together. Hopefully I sound worse than I am and will get back to doing stuff soon, before the week is out God willing. I’ll explain more of 2022’s plans in the v-log (because that went soooooooo well in 2021…did I accomplish ANYTHING I set out to do?) but I just wanted to let you all know what the hold-up is and what’s going on with me. Have a good year, everyone!
