Where have I been? Down days, new projects, and more

Hey everyone…

I feel so horrible that I’ve not been extremely active. I want my blog to be my baby and I feel like I’m neglecting it.

Honestly though, I’ve been struggling a lot with my mental health lately. It seems like every time I don’t have a doctor’s appointment in a month, I get worse. I think my meds are fine… we delay to two months or three months instead of one and then I get worse. Sadly, I didn’t think about the fact that the anniversary of the death of my grandfather was coming up.. I have family on social media so his pictures were everywhere on Father’s day and then again the last few days. Two years ago he passed on July 2nd. I know that’s one of the reasons I’ve been struggling so much lately. I miss him obviously, but I also hate that I couldn’t see him and bitter towards someone for around that time. Zach was amazing back then (8 hour trip just to go to a funeral with me? Thank you so much<3) and is still amazing and supportive now. I can’t thank him enough.

A new member of the family is coming home in a few weeks. I’m trying to get everything set up for her the last month or so.

I’m working on setting a YouTube channel but I’m struggling with having too many ideas and not enough time.

I’m still planning my wedding and have a lot that needs to get done, but at the same time, the most important stuff is already done.

I’ve been playing a lot of Overwatch. I mean, who hasn’t this past month?

I’ve been loving my new Shaman deck in Hearthstone.

I created album art for the amazing Nikki Gillette. There’s a whole post on that here: I created album art for Nikki Gillette

I’ve been posting on Instagram more than my blog. (www.instagram.com/Epicfied  aka @Epicfied)

I’ve been doing a lot more art lately. I am thinking I have an art haul and possibly a giveaway soon. Who is interested in a Prismacolor Premier review? I picked up a second pack just in case I do a giveaway. I think it’d be on YouTube, just stay tuned to my social media.

How have all of you been? I feel so out of touch. Reach out to me!

 

Keep calm, stay epic,

Kayla

  • Sorry that you’re having a hard time.

    • Hey no worries! I just wanted to be open and honest with everyone about my absence. AND, that I didn’t disappear.

  • Feel better! :/

    I just came back from a con and that was a lot of fun!

    • I’m trying!

      You went to Convergence, right? I’m pretty sure I saw your post.

  • *HUGE LOVING LOVING LOVING LOVING LOVING LOVING HUGS*

  • I feel you on the mental health struggles and letting blogging slack. Take care of yourself for sure – I always have the tendency to let self-care slack when down, but it’s so important to focus on it. Hope things get better for you soon!

    • I’m always here if you need someone! I definitely know how that is, more often than I should. Sometimes I just forget to care about myself or just let it slightly go and then it snowballs.
