Guess Who's Back? Back Again (Eminem, FoxTrot, ERB) [Daily Bloggity Entry #190]

Mood: I want all the ice cream.

Eminem is probably one of my favorite artists in the game. He's been a part of the music industry for so long and has made such an impact on it that I like to herald him as one of the best rappers of this generation (if not the best.) But that's besides the point. As much as I'd love to fangirl about how much I love Marshall Mather's lyrical prowess, the Eminem verse is more over a reference to my return to my Moderating duties on PC. Hell, it was a pretty short in general - I believe roughly 3 weeks - I was able to correct a lot of things that were plaguing my life and most of all, put myself back on the right towards a healthy mental state.

Spoiler:

To start off though, I wanted to apologize to all of the people who reached out to me over the last few weeks. Depression is a fickle matter, at least to me it is. I tend to isolate myself when I get into a funk where I'll close off all contact with the ones that I deem close to me, something that is clearly a red flag in many - if not all - situations. It's almost as if it's a reflexive action on my part, and as a result I didn't really respond to people who reached out to me. Coupled with my tendency of not really wanting to explain my emotions in fear of coming across as weak...indeed, red flags across the board. So please, for all those people that were concerned with my well being, please accept this apology and know that if something like this does occur again in the future that I'm going to do my best to have a different outlook on the situation. I can guarantee that much at least.

That being said, things are great right now! The holidays have been absolutely amazing thanks to the efforts of my girlfriend to get me out of my annual "humbug" attitude towards Christmas in general (which I can explain more of in a future entry for space sake.) I've felt the most productive that I've felt in a very long time, and thus I feel that I'm getting on top of my **** a lot earlier than usual (fun fact: just learned that the explicit word for poo poo is still censored...huh, who knew?). Blog's making a comeback, Year of Gaming is making a comeback, and I feel completely energized to tackle a lot of new events for Video Games that I have lined up. Even though yes, I went through a mini depression episode, I believe that the DLOA was a good thing overall as it's helped me reinvigorate a lot of drive towards things that I personally enjoy doing.

Spoiler:

Only the future can really tell on how things in the end are going to be like, but I'm confident that things will be a-okay. Like I said, a lot of plans are in the works - centered around the blog, mod duties, and interpersonal relationships in general - so I can't wait to see what these next few trying weeks are like. Anywho, have you ever suffered from depression before? How do you usually tackle those kind of issues that cause the depression? Have you ever taken a LOA from PC? What made you do it? Comment below as I'd love to hear and discuss with you what you have to say about this subject!

    Y'know, when I feel like that (which is becoming slightly less common in my life), I like to listen to "Not Afraid".


    Actually that whole album. Just in general. It's cathartic, which is why I love metal and industrial so much.


    I was not very impressed with his new album though :( . I listened to like the first half of it. It was very meh to me. But I had pretty high expectations after Recovery, so I set myself up to be disappointed a bit.
