I'm still alive!
If you can believe that. . .
I won't bore you with the whys and hows as to the lack of regular updates, just know that I haven't given up yet.
I'm currently working on my fics and hope to have updates available shortly. So to all my readers still handing in there, thank you so much.
For those that read The Pain of a New Day, you'll have noticed that I posted a Haitus chapter. I do plan to continue typing and I really do apologise for taking so long.
As for when? I cannot say. Time has become a limited luxury. Real life dogs my every second and I rarely have time to just shut the world away and focus on my stories. I have also come to learn some trying things in light of my parents' recent divorce. All I'm saying is that those two should never have reproduced. Ever.
I hope to have something of an update out for any of my fics some time soon.
Happy New Year! I know it's late, a lot late but it's still the new year and I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.
I don't know if people still keep up with my stories or if they still care enough to read the updates but I'm still going to post my new chapters.
To explain my absence I shall start with July. July happens to be my birthday month and the birthday month for many people that I know. As is August. Then in October I was undergoing some training at my work place in order to take over some new work that was going to take up more of my time. It also left me exhausted each day.
October also happened to be the month my mother told my father she wanted a divorce and that pretty soon we all had to move because she could no long afford the rent on the house. And it was also when she told me that I could not move with her. So I was basically kicked out and had to start finding away to deal with that.
And in October I had my learner's test so that I could officially start learning how to drive. I passed the test. To be fair it was early in October and I had spent a good amount of time in September studying for it.
Oh and in September I had all of my wisdom teeth removed. Then spent a week on high pain meds. That was fun. And then had to go back because I managed to develop an abscess. That was not fun. I also had a lot of trouble at work for taking a week of sick leave, as is standard after a wisdom teeth operation. But they didn't seem to think it was necessary and gave me two warnings. One being a final written warning for "Abusing the trust of the company." There was a long process of indignation and unfair labour practise which involved me seeking help from law firms. In the end they had an absurd line in their policies that I did not have access too prior to the incident, that anything deemed abusing the trust of the company was a dismissable offence.
November was dealing with the new work as well as my parents' divorce. I had a lot of personal things to deal with at this point in time. Not to mention I still hadn't started learning how to drive. And having all my savings taken from me, (Keep in mind that this was a really tough thing to handle) by my mother who needed to borrow some money. But I know it won't be returned. I'm not angry, just sad.
Then December and the end of November focused on Christmas shopping so not a lot of time there. I also found a place to stay. And got a new job. It pays for benefits so I wouldn't say I got a salary increase but I suppose it's a pro in terms of the fact that I now have my own medical aid and pension and all of that.
With all the things that happened in the past year, I'm not even mentioning the months before July, I ended up with a case of mild depression.
So in that light, I am trying to regain my routine and beat this depression before it gets any worse. I hope all goes well and I'm trying to start on a clean slate. And thank you for your time to anyone who reads this. And remember, writers are influenced a lot by their personal circumstances. I remember wondering why it took so long to get new chapters for fics I liked and now I know.
Stay strong, dental health is expensive and live happily.
As always, any questions feel free to PM me.
Happy reading and writing.
I will be updating I swear I will! Just have sooooo much less time on my hands these days.
I need some sanity in my life . . . . or maybe I need more insanity?
Kakashi is my favourite character. Then there's Minato even though there's not much of him. And Gaara. Gaara is awesome! Itachi is the best.
I think the Hokage monument is creepy, think about it, no really thiiiiiiink about it and I think the Academy graduation thing is completely wacked out unless the kids are all getting dumber every year. Also Kakashi's graduation and team assignments doesn't make sense either.
I wish Danzo would die (Oh look at that, he did) and I don't like Obito because at the end of it all he's throwing a tantrum.
Just some useless and random thoughts for your day, since everyone needs at least one random thought a day.
Fair's fair is complete.
How the Naruto world works according to Kishimoto . . .
Masashi Kishimoto: The world outside of the ninja is pretty normal. People make their living by running businesses, et cetera. Konohagakure, the Village Hidden in the Leaves, is the military part of the country. Hinokuni, or the Land of the Fire, provides Konohagakure a place to live, and in return, the resident ninja protect the country as a whole, similar to a military force.
As for the government, the daimyo, or warlords, govern the lands and run the political system and the bureaucracy.
Each country has warlords at the top, and its military has its own leaders. In America, you have a president at the top, but you also have the military general at the top of the military. The states have more power than the ninja, but since the daimyo don't cooperate with each other, I guess coup d'etats happen rather frequently. The world is not yet solid [laughs, but what you see in the story is not everything in the world of Naruto.
