It's that time of year again, where I feel obligated to make a blog post and let everyone know what the hell is going on and why I seem to have dropped off the face of the earth (again). Well keep your pants on, because it's not really anything that big.
Mostly, I've just been swamped with school and school-related things (when am I not?) so I haven't been able to work on any personal projects in ages. That's not to say I don't really want to come back to them, I just don't have the time most days, and when I do, I don't have the energy. Who'd have thought that doing school things all day every day could take its toll on someone? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
On top of this affecting CrystalDust and pokeemerald development though, it's also caused me to neglect both the Diegoisawesome and DoMoreAwesome YouTube channels, and Diego and Ray Play Game. To be completely honest, I'd considered stopping the show for a while now, since my heart and passion just aren't in it anymore, as well as it just being draining to have to sit down and edit videos every week and make sure they go out on time on top of everything else. I intend to release the last few videos Ray and I recorded before I stopped and then a farewell video, but I don't think anything else will happen, unfortunately. I'm considering ways to repurpose both channels and maybe get development-related videos on DoMoreAwesome separated from YTPMVs/shitposting on Diegoisawesome, but we'll just have to see.
Oh, and I'm in a play now, so that's cool (and time-consuming). And while I haven't been actively working on pokeemerald, I have been keeping close tabs on its progress and it's going really well. Soon enough, it'll be possible to use as a base for CrystalDust, even before it's fully decompiled. Exciting! Also DoMoreAwesome has a Discord server now (well it's had one for a while but I haven't publicized it anywhere), so go join that and relish in the addition of one more server to your ever-expanding list! I assume, anyway, that you join a lot of random Discord servers, or at least have more than me (with a paltry eight servers, my list doesn't even scroll).
