Hey Babes, I’m Back

It’s been a while since I was around to annoy you all.

We’re only 4 hours away from New Years here in New Zealand, and my ADHD ridden brain is in full-reset-feeling mode.

I don’t know how or why, but I feel like, as the minutes tick down, the last year of feeling low, struggling, depression and out of control ADHD is about to reset and all be wiped clean for a new start.

At the same time, the last New Years feels like it was only a few weeks ago.

It’s silly, honestly, it’s just a date. An arbitrary date we humans have marked as a new turning of the sun, but in the last few days it’s made me feel more motivated, bouncy, happy, and ready to tackle the projects and tasks that my executive dysfunction has been railing against all year long. Suddenly the brick walls standing in my way feel like they’re crumbling, maybe not entirely, but there’s cracks and holes.

That said, I’m currently 5 drinks in for the night and I’m a lightweight, so I might regret this blog tomorrow.

So where have I been for the last *checks notes* 3 years? Well a lot happened in that time period.

Leading up until 2020 I’d been posting here regularly. Regularly enough to be getting a solid few bucks per month. Not life changing money, not side hustle money, but eating out money. Buy those new shoes or nice shirt money. Life was good.

I was also in the middle of moving from Australia to New Zealand after living in Melbourne for eight years. Unfortunately, my visa finally ran out, and I couldn’t stay in my beloved Australia any longer. I was stuck between going to New Zealand for a year on a work and holiday visa, or going back to America (something I still do not wish to do for a variety of reasons).

Well, at that time, I had accidentally started a new business for myself making 3D printable models. I’d gone to school for game design, and with the help of a teacher, I took my 3D artistic talents and turned them into a viable mini-business I’m still working on to this day. The kickstarter project I launched back then, consisting of a collection of 3D printable pinup models, accidentally made far more than I could have imagined, and made my one-year trip to New Zealand a possibility.
