With this episode finally up, I now have two weeks to settle into my new place to live with no major responsibilities, save for working on my secret game project. :)
Not sure if I'm going to start my new video series next week or the week after... probably the week after. As said previously, it won't be anything major but it should be interesting to see what kind of attention it gets. :B

Now that my father and I have moved to a new place, things are very slowly returning to normal. Still don't have internet access, though we're scheduled to have that set up on Friday, thus I'm making this update from my sister's place.
As it stands, I have access to all of my most important stuff again and if there's anything specific I need that I forgot to take out of the storage unit, I should be able to fetch it now, seeing as the storage unit's not utterly packed anymore. There's still a number of little things to do though, such as install an air conditioner for the Summer, install some blinds in my room, not just for privacy but so I can see my computer screen when it's sunny out, and I still need to change a whole bunch of address details over to the new place.
But, it's nice to have my own room again, able to sleep on my own bed (aka: futon), but most importantly of all... I REALLY missed being able to walk on carpet! 8D (Not a fan of wearing socks and anything other than carpet feels sticky and dirty to my feet.)
I've also been in moderate pain the past couple weeks... I thought it was related to something I ate, but then after about three or four days a sort of rash appeared on my lower-right back. Oddly enough, the more the rash fades, the worse it burns and itches, though the fact that it's going away at all, even if really slowly, is a good sign.
So... yeah. Things have been ridiculous, but it seems as though it shouldn't be much longer before things return to normal. This entire ordeal has set back my secret game project too, so we're now looking at around the end of June or early July for the initial release, and as I get closer to that I'll finally be announcing it. :)
The last thing to mention is that I have an idea for a weekly video series I can run alongside everything else I'm doing, as it really wouldn't take more than an hour or two of my time each week. See, the whole ordeal I just went through these past couple weeks made me realize that there's a lot of things I could talk about on a regular basis if I wasn't restricted to specific topics... What I have planned is basically a video blog. A few minutes of footage each week to give everyone an idea of what I've been up to and to talk about... well... just about anything at all.
It'll be interesting to see how well it goes over and whether or not it gets more people involved with my stuff in general. If it only gets a handful of view per video though I probably won't keep it up, or will only do it monthly instead of weekly. We'll see how it all goes soon enough. ;)

Yup. I promised a commemorative video for reaching my first milestone goal on Patreon and spent quite a number of weeks trying to come up with something decent that could really do the event justice, and I think the end result is something very special and not something you could ever get with a typical television show or something that would be competing for ratings. It goes to show the strengths that come with producing an internet video series and just how different (and better) a paradigm such a series is. (Besides, I personally feel "television" as we know it will probably be dead in a decade or two as stronger technologies take the scene for delivering content to people.)
And of course, don't forget to watch the latest ADG episode on Starflight if you haven't yet! ;)
