In summation: never try to repair bridges everyone is hellbent on burning. Don't be honest, it will blow up in your face. Try not to admit anything personal offline - people online are nicer. And don't try to take time off to fix a personal life that is well beyond fixing.
Yes, I'm still here. I'm even semi-alive. I've had a magnificently awful month with enough arguing in it to make all my past personal complaints look minor by comparison. The good news I learned my lesson and will not be attempting to establish any kind of IRL based life for myself again for a long time. I'm back, guys. Once I've had some coffee I've even got some crappy art and subpar fanfic to upload. It's just like old times.
Except that Montana's winter has hit me like the wrath of an angry god so my internet connection is out for about half a day each day. Merde. Ah well, I guess some is better than none. Still, sucky.
Happy pre-Thanksgiving to all my USA peeps. I hate the holiday myself, but hey, for those that love it, happy Turkey Day.
What was the point of this anyway? I swear this post had a point. Huh.
