While I’ve re-opened the queue, I’m only taking requests for military emblems, any custom modeling requests are being declined.
I think that one of the main factors in my getting burned out was the time pressure. Most of that was caused by allowing deadlines to push back the non-deadline work so much that it stacked up. I don’t want 70 or 80 models in my queue, even without deadlines and no one asking when their model would be ready having people waiting 8 or 9 months to get their request done drives me nuts. I tried correcting that for a while last year by instituting a fee and a strict limit on deadlines but as of right now I’m not doing deadlines at all, I’m making the models in the order received.
I didn’t get the reset I was expecting by hiking 6 months, probably because I only got 4 days of actual hiking in. I’m still burned out, I still dread opening Aspire, but my window for a through hike is already closed for this year. There are people starting now but I’m still 3 weeks away from being cleared to start working out and hike again, and after 2 months of no exercise to speak of I’m not fool enough to try to knock out 2200 miles by the end of August.
Here’s the current queue.
