Ok, this is super shitty.
My family is moving to parts unknown (Dallas, TX) this November while I stay up here in Rachacha. Pretty standard stuff, birds leaving nests and all that (quite the reverse, actually), and I am approaching it with cautious optimism. However, that leaves me in a sore spot for finding a place to stay and learning how to support myself. Probably gonna cut back on the hobby-related purchases for a while, so much for DE.
Here's the shitty part. I work full time while going to school, so I have a full plate on my hands. On top of that, this whole move thing is stressing me out like crazy. I feel like my blood pressure is shooting through the roof some times, I get headaches and a general malaise has fallen over me. Bad times if I'm looking for a new place to call home. That also explains my lack of any real updates recently, sorry.
Ok, the real shitty part. I have been enlisted to help my family move Thanksgiving weekend. We'll be loading up a truck, driving it down, unloading and having our Turkey Day together before I fly back up here. The problem? I only have so many vacation days to take off of work and I am living on a very tight budget.
As a result, I will not be attending the Battle For Salvation GT. I don't have the vacation hours, I don't have the money, and I don't have the time when I need to focus on boring stuff like finding a place to live and budgeting my money. I'm really bummed out over it, I was so looking forward to seeing everybody there and having a fun weekend. But it is what it is. Life sucks, being a grown up sucks, and it makes me a sad panda.
Sorry for the disappointment, hope I can make it next year.
