So it's been some time since I posted anything or interacted much on NG. So I decided to write this update to let people know I'm not dead.

Starting with the reason why you started reading this, yes my left ear started bleeding the other day. It started getting plugged shortly after I caught some major virus that is still making me cough viciously. Then in the night it ruptured. I did see a doctor about it; he confirmed it was an ear infection. The problem that concerns me the most is the hearing. Everything I hear out of the left is now registering at a slightly higher pitch than the right. This of course makes music production a bit of a challenge because everything sounds way different now. So it may be some time before I get back in the studio chair.

The last two years have been difficult for me. Mostly due to cost of medication that isn't covered by my insurance for some reason. At some point soon I'll have to choose between medication, food, or rent, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. All this time fighting depression without a job has been hindering, but it may also be a blessing in disguise. Not having a job has given me a lot more time to work on the things I love to do like music and graphic design. Things are looking up though. I had a couple of job interviews and will hopefully hear back from them soon…well, half-hear back.
