Hi guys and girls,
This is a meta post. I felt it was about time to talk to you again and tell you what (not) happened to this blog. I try to keep it brief. Promised.
In fall last year I told my parents that I have problems regarding that thing I vaguely mentioned from time to time in this blog: depression. In the last decade I have isolated myself a good deal – I’m a hermit – and only my girlfriend knew about my condition.
In November 2014 I had some financial problems. I knew that by February 2015 I would have no money left. This caused my depression to reach new heights – at least that is what I think is my happening in my brain, I don’t know for sure. I spend a week sitting on my sofa just starring blankly into the abyss, so I’m fairly sure it is depression.
In January 2015 the financial problem was solved – a lucky coincidence. I now have a steady income. I haven’t had one for 10 years. At least in that regard I have more peace of mind now (although I do not know for how long I will get my paycheck… but this doesn’t matter right now).
A month ago I build up the courage to finally see a doctor and currently I’m on the waiting list for a free spot. I started to meditate (and not only do the guided relaxation tapes) and talked with more people who had similar problems. Putting it all together, I’m in a much better place than when this year started.
My thanks to every one of you who checked in on me during my hiatus.
Writing RocketINK was always some kind of antidepressant for me and I will continue writing here. It is a bit hard to get into writing again. I want to, but there’s a barrier at the moment. This is why I’m activating security protocol B2.

As you can see there is no “teaser image” at the top. I’m trying to streamline my writing process. As little work as this picture is/was, from now on I won’t put it on every post – it always kept me from doing short link posts and sometimes from writing larger articles, too.
I have a few other ideas in my head and will go back to the drawing board for RocketINK V2.
