Okay a little last minute, but I'm going to go live at 11pm EST TIME!!! Really excited to share what I've been up to 🥳 Special guest RYNNNIEE (my spouse) will help demonstrate what learning in Dreams is like! With me as their teacher? Hehe this'll be interesting. I'll also be debuting my NEWS segment, which - if you're signed up on LyzLdy.Live, you will get access to what I plan to cover before the show. More perks like this (except better) will be coming to subscribers of my content (via Patreon ). After Visual Game Dev 101 (Dreams Edition) , I'm going to dig into a little SurvivEscape : what I've been working on, maybe what yall have been working on for SE, and more. Then I'll confront my failure to maintain Search 'n Shape (just kidding - every weekly challenge needs its "seasons" break!) by cleaning up the beautiful mess we left behind a month ago, and setting the stage for Search 'n Shape: Season 2 . Maybe I'll try some Game Builder Garage again? There won't be time to do it all, since this is a late stream. I want to actually get to bed at reasonable hours LOL. Some of yall have shown concerns for my wellbeing in regards to the multiple all-nighter streams I've done lately, so I'm trying to not do that haha. My plan is to have really early streams much sooner than later. In FACT, I insist that it will be done BEFORE our move is over. It must be! I demand it. Okay I better keep setting up because I have no idea how to do this anymore. It's only been a month but dang. No no it's fine. Lyzgo!
Yall!!! Your patiences have been so very real 🙏🏽 My comeback would have been today! 😊🤔
It is looking like a tomorrow type of deal, however... 😒 It is! 🙄 It isssss! 🥰 I hope 🙃 Last week we officially secured the place we're gonna live for the next while (and on our wedding anniversary of all days 😊) - as I said before there will be a whole stream studio I can use, and it's not a tiny little room either, it's the whole lower level of a split-level house 😱! I can barely contain my excitement -- actually, I'm not containing it. I'm trying to set things up to make the transition to that easier, all while packing and cleaning and driving and... ugh that's boring stuff. For 4 weeks (I think) I should be able to do 2 shows per week, Mondays & Thursdays. Tomorrow's my birthday! 🙌🏽🎉🙌🏽🎉🙌🏽🎉 Soooo it makes sense to wait until then to stream, right? Let's go with that. I have a lot of new streamstuffs coming too - know that when Lýz gets back to it, she gets back to it in style 😎😅 Fr fr fr And after doing meditations, self-reflections, and financial-advice-ebook-reading (mostly the last one), I think it's time I start giving folks a more gamified chance to support the show with real fundage. 🤨......😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶 Hey it would make getting stream-started and staying stream-strong many many more times easier if I knew that streaming didn't mean I'd have to give up contributing to my family and my own personal alive'dness 🤨... I mean, ok my alive'dness is fine, but I'm just sayin'; I can't show up like it's my job unless it is my job....... 🤔...🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯 But I don't quite want to get all the way into alla that right now.
Still, having decided to offer more ways fun!d (🙄🙄🙄) my show means new stream interactions are coming! Especially for supporters but also non-supporters alike. I've got some really slick and efficient ways of scaling up how yall can enjoy the stream 🙌🏽! Keep a lookout here or on the DEV AF Discord to stay in the loop about when I'll be live tomorrow. Today just wasn't the day, but tomorrow's my birthday (🥳🥳🥳) so the energy certainly will be there for me to make it happen, hehe.
Yes, I hate to say it but these next two weeks are going to be WEIRD.
I know for the time I've been streaming on LyzLdy.Live, there's been cancellations galore. Trust that I've been streaming very consistently for over a year before this!
And also trust that the schedule will return to something regular and less cancel-y soon enough.
We are, for this and next week, actually in the area we will be buying a new house. It is 1000 miles from our current home! And lemme tell ya, it's WEIRD! The midwest US has such a different culture than the east coast does. And we've gone from living in a cottage to living in a hotel 🤣😲
I had every intention of streaming on Thursday, as I did on Monday, and as I do tomorrow. But I gotta tell ya, these days it's just too unpredictable. Undecided, you might say. Well, I might say, coz... that's this post's... title. Anyway. The next four planned shows, Saturday, Monday, Thursday, and Saturday again, will remain undecided in their scheduling or if they happen at all 😳
Of course this has the biggest implications for Search 'n Shape - the Dreams community challenge I have committed myself to running and frankly love to be part of. Yesterday should have been the start of Week 10 , but it's going to have be Week 9 + 10 , meaning a continuation of Week 9 - Card Games, Procedural Patterns, and Fantasy Magic.
As for next Thursday, well, I hope that it won't be yet another continuation. By then we should have a better idea of what life is like in this hotel and house-hunting world, and I mean, I didn't lug my streaming setup out here for nothin!
I wish I could say I was one of those IRL "Just Chatting"-type streamers. But I'm not, and take the categories I do fall in pretty seriously! So I don't want to give yall an unpredictably unfamiliar show, even if that means having an unpredictable, undecided schedule in its stead.
Thank you for understanding, and look out for messages here or on the AF Discord (go to the "channel updates" section to add yourself to the Devlogian role). I won't be able to promise you anything other than those updates, and now that I understand how certain the uncertainty will be, I'm going to make sure I let yall know what's going on.
All the best, and here's to getting LyzLdy.Live and the LyzLdy show in general back on a regular sched! Seriously, moving in to our new home is going to have me pumping out content like never before. But that's... not right now, so. Time will tell 😅💝
