Hey guys, what's up?
So, this kinda came out of nowhere to a degree, so I'll try to at least write a half decent explanation by way of blog post.
Basically it all comes down to me being burned out. I wasn't finding the enjoyment with ABRL anymore, but that wasn't entirely it; I've stubbornly moved through tough times before and come out the other side a lot stronger for it, so I wrestled with this choice for a while.
Unfortunately, I'm also going to throw out the "Real World Shit" card: Real World Shit is happening. Without going in-depth, I'm looking to be kept on as a full-time employee, and I'm also doing some TAFE stuff, but that's not entirely it; I've been working full-time and going to TAFE the entire time I've been doing ABRL.
Really, it's just gotten to the point where I don't enjoy it. Where I can't find the right ideas, or even worse, be bothered to draw them when I have them. And that's what this has always been about; there's not much point to me carrying on this extra workload if I'm not getting my end out of it by way of enjoying myself.
So yeah, I am selfishly putting ABRL on a hiatus, while I have a good hard think about what I'm doing and where I'm going and other horribly unfunny things.
ABRL might be back after a week, or after a month, or maybe two, but at this point I do fully intend to return to ABRL after a bit of rest and aforementioned Real World Shit. I really am sorry that I can't carry on making this for you guys, but unfortunately that apology is all I can offer you at this point.
TL;DR: Real Life Shit, hiatus, ABRL will definitely resume, give me a month or two max.
