Filling Things In

So as usual I’ve been busy but quiet. Behind the scenes there’s so much not good I’d rather you didn’t know but I have to let y’all in. 

So I feel like y’all should know what’s going on in case I vanish. My housemate hasn’t paid the internet and apparently it and my phone (as it’s a connected account) could be disconnected at any point unless I can come up with the money. I plan on keeping things going as long as possible and I’ll get back up and running as soon as possible but I don’t have the means to pay it out so it’s business as usual until the lines go down without a miracle. Sorry to have to bring it to you but I thought you deserved the truth. 

It’s truly hard with how well everything has been going to see this part of my life bottom out. If I had a “real” job (and the ability to have one, which with my back injury among other things isn’t possible) or if I’d money coming in (no I’m not on any support at all nor do I want to be, and that’s how I want to continue with no disrespect to anyone who is) I’d not be in this position. I feel like it’s all within grasp but it’s just not there financially yet and that shouldn’t negate all your support of my various projects. I’m attempting to perform miracles and transform my life and I know there’s bumps on the route, I just wasn’t expecting this one. I guess it’s gonna make for a hell of a story though! 

I promise I’m not vanishing for long if it happens.

Of Course

So as I’m sitting here in chaos, the thought occurs to me that I should reopen the etsy and zibbet shops. Seems the postal negotiations are quiet and things seem to be calm, I’m feeling foolish I haven’t reopened them earlier. Glad I didn’t!   

What a way to end the past months of chaos that has been my summer. I’ve got stuff in transit, that I ordered because stuff has been quiet and most has come in but it’s 2 that I’m waiting for that are going slower than molasses uphill in January that are of course not here yet. I specifically put my shops on hiatus to keep this from happening to you and I’m glad I did. I should mention that this does not affect or include either of my redbubble shops, those are open and unaffected. 

In other news, I’m sure you’ve noticed a lack of posting and updates. And if you follow me as gmeraine on YouTube you know there’s been no updates to the archive there in a week. And I you follow me as Parapopulous it’s been forever since I posted. I’m sorry for all the chaos! It’s been really rough for me personally since the start of June and it’s starting to show. I’m doing my best to keep streams going and things as normal as possible but it’s hard. I’m stressed and being pulled in so many directions and working on coming up with a schedule that can keep it all functioning. I know I’ve said it too many times but I promise things will get back to where they should be. 

On that note I’ve gotta dash and go take care of some stuff for my parents but I’ll chatter with you again soon.

Shops

So until I get the widget working I wanted you to be able to visit my new redbubble and my updated deviantart. Of course the BonBonBetties etsy and BetwixtBaubles zibbet are still there and the MagpieMuddles shop is somewhere on its way.

Gotta run to go stream…

Oy!

What a couple of weeks. Last week I got distracted with some visitors and this week my bestie is in the hospital with an average of 103 fever and fighting some nasty body invader. Well it’s not the flu and that’s about all they know, ugh. My dad is also doing a bunch of tests before they decide surgery and all that. I’m scrambling to catch up on my gmeraine YouTube archives in the midst of all this and well there are a bunch of other things getting lost in all the commotion. For that I’m sorry. Life is definitely getting in the way but I promise I’m doing my best to keep some kind of momentum going.

Big News

So I was asked to join a team by Good4Gaming and participate in Extra Life this year with my  gmeraine Twitch channel. I said yes and would really like your help in fundraising for this amazing cause. You can go to my Extra Life page and donate at any point before midnight ET on November 5 2016 to help make this happen. This also happens to be my birthday, so I’d like to make it the best one ever by helping out this amazing cause!

I also wanted to mention all my gaming related social media is now all using gmeraine. I love the klutzy gamer but I want to make it as easy as possible for you to join the rainestorm.

Hi

How’ve you all been? 

It’s been just ridiculously busy for me. Not surprisingly so you might say but this past few weeks have been much more so. 

I’ve been playing in the mornings as well for 2 hours. It’s not been daily but it’s been almost so. I’d like to keep it in some form or possibly switching a stream or two to the brunching hours, but I’m not sure what the end result will be. I’ve been having weird issues with only certain games not exporting over and it’s been almost a week of trying! I don’t want to have to start recording while I stream, as I don’t think my processor and memory will be enough so if it continues a venue switch may have to happen. I’ll of course keep you posted but it’s business as usual for the Klutzy Gamer Twitch and YouTube. And let’s not forget my weekly streams on Great Geekwads too! 

So beyond the usual gaming routine it’s been a busy couple weeks for behind the scenes stuff like taxes and spring outdoor work. I’m filming and have two videos ready to go up for you on the RaineCaster YouTube. They’re being edited as I learn how to insert and it’s a slow thing since it’s only me working on everything, but I promise they’ll be up sooner than later. 

In all this Parapopulous has been gaining fans! And I’m excitedly seeing it and my Klutzy Gamer growing. I know the shops will as well once the items I’ve been attempting to work on amidst all this get up and the shops get a bit of a tweak. This must begin to feel like lip service but I have been working away at things for them, though admittedly not nearly as fast as I’d want to.

It’s hard to think about much else with all this going on but my family and in particular my dad have been taking a lot of my attention. This will be his last week of chemo and radiation and he is starting to really feel the effects of it. After Monday he’ll have a wait of a few weeks and then surgery at the start of June. It’s perhaps a front he’s giving us all but he’s doing well, all things considered. Though I, and much more so he I’m sure, can’t wait for things to get back to normal. Or as normal as they get for me LOL. 

So lovelies, I’m off to attempt another try of seeing if those two nights will export over, fingers crossed they join all the others that have managed to export with no issues and work on getting one video up on RainCaster. Don’t forget there’ll be a new Parapopolous blog out tomorrow too and as always a livestream tonight! 

au revoir
