Yeah been gone for a bit so I figure I'd put a little update up. Don't know if anyone really cares but for those that might basically this is what's been up the past few months.
We moved out of Chicago because we just were not finding stable work out there to MD. We stayed with my aunt for about 5 weeks and moved into our townhome on May 10th. We both have a job that pays pretty well and are basically doing well overall. The other thing that I haven't mentioned on here is that I am pregnant with our second child and I mean I'm going to have the baby come the end of July. Hence the no meetup this year. I haven't said anything on FFR because I've seen how people talk around here but whatever if you wanna talk shit about it go right ahead. I work, I go to school, I support a place and I take care of my 2yr old. Speaking of school I just finished up another term and still holding my 4.0 GPA. I've finished up 60 credit hours in less than a year. My completed upcoming term will mark a full year that I've been in and I'm already into a Sophomore level a bit. So I'm pretty happy about that. Other than that I'm in the works of financing a car and just getting ready for our new baby.

There's been a lot of speculation and such as to my leaving so I figure maybe I should clear some of it up. Yes, there have been some incidents on FFR that have upset or frustrated me but that's not my main reason for leaving. I'm dealing with a lot of things in my own personal life right now that's bearing down on me really hard. It's affected how I've been able to handle other stresses (such as the things that come up here on ffr). My grades are even starting to slip for college from all this stuff which is really making me feel even worse because I was proud to know that I've been able to keep a 4.0 GPA. I'm pretty sure after this term I wont have that anymore. I just got an assignment back that I lost 15 points on, that's the most I've ever lost on anything thus far. I haven't been able to concentrate on things, nor just function normally. I need to break away from this place and work on fixing all the things that have gotten screwed up in my life. I did decide to stick around and finish the Official tournament because I felt it unfair to just dump the project after starting it and I do care about the people in this community whether you all believe that or not.
I should also note that I did remove most people from FFR from my facebook and skype, but it's nothing personal. I'm just trying to get my focus back on these things that I need to take care of. I do want to stay in touch with the community but I need to do it within a limit so I'm not tempted to stray away from what I need to do. I'm sure most people can attest that FFR is in fact an escape from the real world and a great way to procrastinate. Anyway, that's enough of my rambling. Feel free to leave me PMs on here I'll check from time to time and I am still here until the end of the tournament.

Another has come and gone already. It's kinda hard to believe almost a year had passed since the last. It was such a blast to get to see some people again, and meet some new people.
Kellen, JS, alloyus, tera, and Tyson - it was really great seeing you all again.
V4N - well I see you all the time anyway :p
Nocturne - It was great to finally get to meet you, even though we didn't get to talk much.
apodsk - Didn't really get much of a chance to get to know you, but glad you could come anyway ^_^
awein - I'm so glad you were able to make it to this one. I have to say for a tall guy you hide pretty well XD. Most of the time I had no idea where you were at the break, but seriously it was awesome to meet you.
Dossar - What to say, you're a pretty chill person irl even if you have your cocky moments. I have to admit it was pretty damn cool getting to meet the machine haha.
Zetuh - You are so super nice and were totally cool to talk to. I think Saphira liked you a lot too ^_^ I'm hoping since you and Tera are both in NJ that we can meetup again sometime soon and not like a year from now.
I really wish we could do these more often. Even if the arcade isn't always someone's cup of tea, it's so cool getting to chat with everyone and watch people play different games. Eh maybe we'll shoot for another winter meetup this year. But I know it's a lot harder for people to get out during school times.

Yea totally ripping off the thread that's going on and doing it as a RT on my pro. Somehow I doubt anyone's really going to notice this, but if you do, feel free to ask me anything and I shall answer.
