Was6p. So, as most of you have probably noticed by now, I haven’t been publishing shit as frequently as I usually do. I didn’t even do the best singles of the week this past Sunday. There are a few reasons for this. First of all, I am back in college at Hofstra University, so I have way less free time to stay on top of current releases and write about them. That’s not the main issue though. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know how I am. Shit is real right now. When it rains it pours. I’ve been diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder ever since I was 11 years old, and it’s really bad right now. Not only do I not have time, but I simply just don’t have the emotional and mental capacity to write about music every single day. I’m not gonna be doing the best singles of the week stuff anymore. I know it’s disappointing, and it sucks, and I wish I could keep doing it, but I have to put myself first and make sure I’m taking care of myself. My mental health comes first, then school, then this blog. If you really miss it that much, I highly suggest you check out The Soup Dude’s Kitchen. He’s another blogger whose work I recently discovered, and I think his website is really goddamn nice. Obviously we don’t have the exact same style or taste, but he knows what he’s doing, and he covers weekly releases as well. So basically, I’m just gonna go back to my original original schedule. I’m not gonna be posting a review every single day, and I’m not gonna do best singles of the week. I’m just gonna post shit whenever I feel like it. Shit might be kinda sparse. Shit is mad real right now, man. I’ve been struggling since August, but it’s just really rough right now. I will never stop writing, but I can’t be super consistent with it every single day. I’m sure at some point in the future I’ll be doing shit more frequently, but I just gotta chill for now. Sorry for the inconvenience. If you’re an artist who has sent me your shit to review, I promise I will get to it at some point. I’m still gonna cover your shit. However, I probably won’t be taking any more new submissions for now. I’ll give an update when things are better. Peace.
No need to apologize. I used to blog about music back in high school and college and wanted to listen to (CONSUME) every thing and share what I loved, but understandably it can be taxing, even to the point where I wasn’t enjoying music enough and more so just going through the motions of listening to anything new. Focus on yourself and your schooling and take the time to address your needs. I appreciate the music you’ve shared since I followed. Peace.
I’m just waiting for the Nas album cause the Nas marathon. But take your time, your mental health comes first, I love your work so much, so I’m glad you linked someone else I can read while you take time for yourself. Love your stuff.
