It's been awhile! I haven't gone anywhere, in the sense that I am around on the internet and engaged regular in-person social networks, but life behind The Great Firewall definitely takes its toll on my online social life availability (when you have to wait several minutes for each page to load, you tend to stop paying attention to the interwebz and want to start drinking). On the other hand, real life has been pretty exciting to make up for it: ask me about my volunteer bartending and 3am visits to the police station sometime! I've also been traveling a lot for work between countries, so most of my hours are filled with some job task or another or time away from the internet -- I do enjoy my work so that is why I let it consume so much time, but it has been hectic on my nerding time, I'm afraid. When not puttering about in front of a computer, I've also joined a really amazing old skewl roleplaying group in the area, and have been having A LOT of fun playing some real live RPGs with friends. (In-person roleplay is where it all started, you know!)
But, in all seriousness, I am very sorry to have neglected many of my amazing online friends and communities, and hope that in the second half of this year I can get back to being more of an online geek again. I still have a big list of projects I owe people (I don't ever forget them, just horribly neglect them) and maybe someday I'll complete them before I die. Maybe.
Miss engaging with you all, and hope you guys and girls are doing well. Drop me a line occasionally!
