I'm not leaving forever and I'm not upset about anything! (<-- first things first)
However, this semester is kind of a train wreck already for me. I didn't get into one class and I got dropped from another, which means my G.I. Bill (I was Navy for 5 years) will be going from full time to half time, which means I'll be out almost $1000 per month. There aren't any classes I can take until the second half of the semester that will fulfill requirements for the Veteran's Association, and even then I'll only be at 3/4 time, and out $500 a month. So I have to not just get a job (already in the works) but work full time. If I get a bartending job and the tips are lousy because I'm working days, I'm going to have to add a part time job onto that. So between 12 units (5 of them aren't accepted by the VA, but I need to take the class following it, which is
accepted by the VA), working full time, and quite possibly having a second job, I'm not going to be around very much at all. Vant and I have some major plans for this summer (namely, he's moving to California) but that takes money. My desire for leisure time simply can't be prioritized over taking the necessary steps to ensure that we can afford this move.
I'll still answer PMs (as swiftly as I'm able) and I'll keep up with my LJ http://amariune.livejournal.com/
which is really more of a rants journal at this point as opposed to anything Kin-related. However, if I have the time, I'm going to make some Kin-centric posts, which will allow me the luxury of being able to expand on ideas in a way that's inappropriate for OKP. Those posts will be friend-locked (rants are public.)
At any rate, everybody take care. I'll miss you.
