Hiiii :-) I haven't made a blog post for awhile, but I just
wanted to pop in and say that I'm doing pretty well! I've
been really focusing on my health and trying not to be too
hard on myself When things aren't going great.
Since my last blog post, I've gone to Fluke (mini
comics expo) with friends, gone to the beach with family,
and Have just been trying to figure things out and live in
between! I made a minicomic that I passed and traded around
at Fluke that I'll Probably post in comics a little later
that was inspired by my last blog post (but more in a
"looking up" sort of way).
I've also read a book recently (called Piranesi) and I really
liked it, so I want to write a review of it sooner or
Hope everybody has a nice friday!

Drowning in My Brain
I'm just popping in real quick to sigh publicly. I've had
such a hard time focusing on anything that matters this
week. I periodically have these times where my mind won't
latch onto anything and work at 100 percent. During these
times I'm mega forgetful, which (ironically)
always makes me remember the scary fact that people with
ADHD are much more likely to develop Alzheimers when they
get older... And I can totally see why. These moments feel
like what I imagine to be Alzheimers lite. A brain fog that
obscures purpose, ambition, and sends you scrambling for
something to hold onto.
I feel Less Meg this week... But I'm sure they'll be back.
There's just enough going on in my life and in the world
that it'd be much more helpful if they were here right
Thank you so much for listening to my little vent- it kind
of brings me back a little just to acknowledge and write it
down. If you're reading this and have any favorite resources
or tactics to get yourself out of this kind of haze, share
them to me at meggieport.gmail.com or here on Neocities.
2/26/2022 - This Too Shall Pass
New year, new blog page
Let me update people on how I’ve
been doing! I started a job over the holiday season pretty
soon after my last update and while I thought I was signing
up for part time, I got Hella hours, which was good for
money, but bad for my already limited energy level. All of
my art/website/small business plans had to go on hold.
I’ve now since evened out my
workload, putting a hard limit on how many hours I can do
and when I can work them. It’s been a couple of weeks of the
new schedule and I think I can work with it, it’s just...
really hard getting back in the groove. Shifting gears has
always been something difficult for me and getting back into
doing art after a period of time when I was Not is very
At least I can maintain my
insurance this year!... And I plan on using it. I’ve gone
far too long without addressing my energy problems and it’s
clear that it’s having a pretty big impact on my life, even
with just a *little* of it being monopolized by work. I
meant to look into this more last year, but it was less of a
problem when all of my work was so self guided and I could
plan around my bad times...
But anyway!! I just wanted to check
back in and assure people that I’m Still Around, just
figuring out some stuff.
Oh, btw, I have a couple of friends
who have just joined Neocities and have opened up some
sites!! Check out Ingram’s secretpaths.neocities.org &
