I don’t want to make this long and I’ve debated about whether or not I wanted to post anything, but I feel it necessary to those of you that follow to say a little something.
Due to some personal stuff going on in my life, I’ve had to
take a severe step back from certain projects and things related to this
website and fandom. I still love Mass Effect and I don’t plan on leaving
anytime soon, but I may have to take a short hiatus or two while I get things
in my life sorted. Clearly, I hope you’ll all stick around during those times
of absence, but I understand if you don’t.
DME has been posting daily since late October 2015, so I think that
taking some time off isn’t necessarily a BAD thing overall, anyway.
Even in the midst of what’s going on, I do want to say that scheduling my queue and seeing all the Mass Effect content that this community continues to produce is a wonderful and happy distraction for me. Things in my life are drastically different than they were just a month ago so having this place to dive into to take my mind off of things is really nice.
I’ve had some spectacular folks supporting me behind the scenes (a few tumblr peeps on top of some very special real life peeps). There are those of you who are helping me without even knowing it by making me smile and allowing me see that there are still beautiful and wonderful things going on out in the world.
In the beginning, I started this place as an homage to this series that helped me through a VERY difficult mental time in my life and I know I will continue to look to it to help me through this as well.
If Shepard can do it, so can I.
Thank you all.
