Guess Who's Back?

It's been a year since I last posted? Holy....

Let's address the elephant in the room, then go for the reintroduction. It's a complicated explanation. A lot of varying factors; short version, I got burnt out. My personal life got more difficult, and I had little to contribute here.

However, I realize I needed some assistance, so now, here I am. I'm working with some old pals in the Drome slowly rebuilding. I'm not 100% fully back due to said problems. But, it's time to slowly get back into it.

Needless to say, it'll be from time to time I pop in. Not permanent, due to school and fighting the demons, however. Regardless, yours truly is back.
_________________________________

With that brief summary, exactly who am I? If you been following the Drome the past couple of years, you got a clue. It's right above my (current) profile pic of Undertaker, only I'm not a Dead Man Walking.

All seriousness, I'm the Gold Mutant, or Gold/GM for short. At the time I joined during high school, my only familiarity with the TMNT was the then recent TMNT cartoon. That'd be the 2012 Nick rendition; I have my nostalgia for it, but it's not my cup of tea anymore. Since then, I've refamiliarized myself with the Turtles through the shows (sans Rise), movies (sans PD), and a few comics.

Outside the Ninja Turtles, I am also an avid fan of other media. My Undertaker-style profile tells you I'm a wrestling guy. Also, I love video games, music, theater, working out, superheroes, basically any form of media.

Currently, I am continuing my education with a focus on Communication/Film to become an editor, professor, or my pipedream, filmmaking. Since my last appearance, I made a short film (looking to revise) and trying to reignite my creative block. I've written a few stories (and three TMNT scripts), but nothing major since.

I am hoping with the eventual full return here, I can get back into things. I am willing to answer questions for why I been gone. Otherwise, time to raise shell.

Looking forward to seeing y'all again very soon.

-Gold/GM

Same guy, but more likely to BS. (or, until I change from Taker to someone else.)

I don't even know who you are.

But I'm guessing I will?

Yep; I see you're a new one, so welcome too.

I ran amok for a while, but been gone for the last year. Mostly the Nick/General sections, but now there's gonna be changes.

Slowly but surely, my man. Got a few demons I need to beat, so not 100% return just yet. But, better late than never, right?

Shoot me a PM or message to touch base.

Welcome back. I’m glad to hear that you’re doing well.

I’m also continuing my education at the moment. Started a Healthy Eating course via Zoom recently and I’ll apply for gardening and digital media courses once they’re given the go ahead (they’re postponed for the time being due to Covid).

It'll be a bit of time before I begin to post more frequently again. Obviously, I'm more pressed for time. Same time though, gotta exorcise those demons.

Guess we'll see; appreciate it either way.

Covid-19 has forced my hand both at work and my return to school too. I graduated my community college last year (semester early). It allowed me to work during the pandemic's then highs; whether good or bad, you be the judge. It killed me doing two jobs from April to August, but I managed.

It's similar right now to trying to do stuff here for me. It was hybrid until this past Wednesday, where cases came up out of nowhere. Suspicious, but eh.

At the least, got both facial hair, a raise, and potentially a change in weight/size. It's a win; now, to formally improve my fat/muscle ratio and beat the mental blockades.

Thanks for the words regardless, man.
