An Update

Y'alright Sam lad? What 'ave you been doin'?

October 27, 2023

Hi everyone. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I think some of you might want an explanation on what’s been going on.

In short - I just haven’t had the energy or motivation to write any blog posts. Or even write code in general. My mental health has taken a massive hit since 2022, and it’s still not right. I’m not totally ready to explain why that is, and I’m not comfortable in sharing what’s happening right now publicly, as it’s still very much impacting me - and I don’t want to make it any worse. I also don’t really like using this site as a place to rant or offload the troubling things I’ve been through real life. And I want to keep it that way.

Things are hopefully on the mend though. I have a goal in mind on what I’d like to do, and I’m working towards it. I’m not there yet, and I don’t think things will be sorted with me mentally until I get there. Maybe in a few months time I’ll make a post saying “I did it! I did it!“.

Sorry it’s not a 5000 word essay on exactly what’s happened since my last post, but I feel it would be quite impactful on me or get me into trouble, and something which I might later regret doing. I might post the odd blog post here and there, but no grantees.

In other news though I’ve visited three new countries and updated the site to Astro since the last post.

That's the article!

I really hope you enjoyed this post or found it useful in some way!
