Hey, how you doing?

Sorry I ain't been through. It's been a minute, thought I'd get back to you.

Major props to any of you who read that to the beat of De La Soul's Ring Ring. Classic song, people. C-l-a-s-s-i-c.

It has indeed been a minute, maybe even a minute-and-a-half, since I've been through here. Maybe you've been wondering where I've been, what's been going on, was a missing persons report necessary? Pull up a seat and I'll fill you in.

Quite simply and very honestly, over the last few months I have not been in any real shape to do much. Both on a social media front and also on the real life front. From the time I came back from New York in April, me being very unwell and sick was pretty much a record on repeat. You should see my record of how many sick days I've taken at work during these months. I'm astounded I have any sick days left actually.

I cannot ever recall a time that I have been as ill as I had been during these months. There was a point I thought I may have pneumonia. My most recent bout of illness occurred just a week and a half prior to my birthday. I was so sick of being sick and for it to happen again just before my birthday, it really upset me. I had planned my celebrations, been shopping for my outfit (I already had the shoes worked out, of course) and to be sick once again was not a birthday present I wanted. This was also the most unwell I found myself to be of all the times I had been sick and I needed the entire week off work. I could not even move from the couch to the bed and one morning woke to my hair and clothes being soaked wet due to my raging fever.

Thankfully, I am now feeling much better. Not just physically but also mentally and emotionally. Being unwell is not just hard on your body but also your mood and your spirits. I had neither the energy or the inclination to do the things I usually do, even down the going out and spending time with friends.

As I remarked to a friend today, I feel that the old me is returning. Perhaps right now I'd say I'm running at seventy-five percent. I won't be hard on myself though. Sometimes you need to be knocked around and knocked down to realize you need to take better care of yourself.

I have plenty to share with you and I look forward to bringing you some of the content I have been creating behind the scenes. Next week I leave once again for New York and of course, I will take you all with me.

But for now, it's so good to be back.
