Why am I so bad at communicating
I’m sitting here trying to reply to an email and I just want to rip my guts out. Like, it’s causing me physical pain right now.
So I just wanted to say, if you’ve tried to contact me through Tumblr or email or whatever means over the past few months and your message has just vanished into the night: I am so, so sorry. I’m not trying to ignore anybody. It’s just that my brain seems to react to messages by going into “HIDE AND MAYBE IT WILL ANSWER ITSELF” mode. And I really wish it didn’t.
Reblogging for major and rather depressing gpoy. This is why I struggle so much to get through my ask messages, deviantART comments, etc. I’m a little bit better about email, but that’s always a challenge too.
Also, I really, really like to respond to ask messages with doodles (this is an art blog, after all!), and it can be tricky to find the time to do so. School and work have taken over my life for the last several years and have left me in a pretty much constant state of exhaustion. I promise I’ll catch up eventually, despite my quirks and tiredness!
