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.

Toodles Tuesday

Hiya all! 

Some changes to discuss this go round. As you’ve likely noticed, my gaming is beginning revamp and the cause is a necessary one, I’ve changed all my gaming media to gmeraine. I love being the klutzy gamer but it’s so many names for one endeavour. I remain FireflyRaine on XBL but all social media is now gmeraine. I’m writing this on mobile but as soon as I get in front of my laptop, I’ll continue updating links including the ones here on site. Until then just look for gmeraine on TwitchYouTubeHitboxSteamFacebookGoogle+Twitter & Instagram. Sorry for any confusion. I’m making the graphics and swapping up the links my priority for the week. 
In other news, I missed last weeks Parapopulous blog and yesterday’s podcast. I’m sorry and will get this weeks blog up on Thursday to catch us back up. I did say I would do one a week if I got crunched and boy did I. And then created more work too LOL! 

It’s a short update but I have to squeeze in some yardwork before more interwebs work so I’d better get my bunions moving! 

I hope the world is treating you well.

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

P.S. Don’t forget there’s a Facebook page for all my projects as well and give ’em a like if you happen to drop in. You can find them through the Raine of Iris hub or the links here. And “May the fourth be with you”! 

Happy almost Friday

Another long week and another week of being slightly behind but LOL what else is new.

So been busy streaming on Twitch  6 nights on gmeraine and 1 on GreatGeekwads. Of course there’s extra streams here and there and then there’s the scheduling and archiving to YouTube that take up extra time but it’s amazing to be able to hang out with my rainestorm. Looking forward to CoD this weekend since its been a while. 

Loving the IRL & behind the scenes channel, though I’m not sure what to do with it sometimes. I think it’s a nice peek behind the scenes and a glimpse into the person behind the shops, streams, podcast and blogs. Count on it being random because it’s just how I am. I hate that I can’t name it because of he changes to YouTube but, we’ll get to their count and be able to do it soon.

Parapopulous has been busy and there’ll be a new blog post tomorrow. I’m liking the more personal post and though I always planned to do that its nice to have my sea legs. I’m not sure what way I’m going to go with the next post so be sure to follow by RSS feed, on WordPress or through bloglovin’. And of course the podcast is available with direct download or iTunes subscription.

The shops are in limbo. I mean they’re up (except Magpie Muddles) but they need some love and updates. And I will be changing my deviantart to RaineofIris at some point. I have soooooo many ideas to get to you and I promise I will sooner rather than later. 

Well, it’s almost stream time so I’d better get going and get set up. I’ll chatter at you again soon.

au revoir
