Notice of Absence / Return
Notice of Absence / ReturnOK, work is threatening to swamp me, college work has hit me hard, and real life (read: love life) has finally caught up with me. Which means in like just a day my free time went the way of the Dodo (this has been the first time I've been able to get online and post this). It's unlikely I'll be able to read anything before at the earliest the middle of next week, and who knows when I'll get to write something, but hopefully again the middle of next week.
Man, RL can be a pain sometimes…
Notice of Absence / ReturnNo problem, Angkor. If you think you will be delayed for quite some time, notify Nekessla, Garrick, or Tarsk, and they will attempt to carry your character, if necessary.
Notice of Absence / ReturnOK, I'm going to have to own up here. This won't probably come as a surprise to people. If they haven't read my earlier post and known how busy I am, then my lack of posting should have been a big hint. So it's about time I give you the official word. I felt you at least deserved that, rather than me vanishing without a word.
I am REALLY finding it difficult to get a spare five minutes at all. If it isn't work, college or the g/f , then it's something else. Such as eating. Or sleeping. Monday and yesterday I was home for about forty-five minutes between 8:00am and 11:30pm, which was spent on dinner and coursework. I finnaly got to bed at 12:30. Tuesday I spent all afternoon and evening doing more coursework, getting to bed well past midnight. Today has been, just for a change, work and coursework. Tomorrow is more coursework, with work all day Saturday for much needed cash. No offence, but after a week like that sunday I'd like to spend chilling with the g/f and/or sleeping. A lot.
And y'know what? It's set to look like that for a long time. A very long time. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if I'm running like that until the coursework deadlines in March. Just in time for, that's right, muchos studying for exams just two months away. Fun, fun, fun. If i don't burn out by at least the end of Feburary, I will be very surprised.
So as you can see, fitting in regular writing for an RPG is not set to be easy. In fact, I would put it somewhere short of impossible.
The optimist in me says I should be able to get some time to write in half term. However, I'm not an optimist. To mis-quote Garrick on DS9: I'd like to be one, but experience has taught me to expect the worse.
What does this mean? Bad news, I'm afraid. It looks like I'm going to have to drop out of Tales already, after only a few weeks here. It's a real shame, as I enjoyed the writing (all two posts of it ), was fond of my character, and this looked like a really awesome RPG community that I looked forward to getting more into. Unfortunately, Real Life, and it's committments, has reared it's ugly head once more. Alas, this may very well be farewell.
I may pop-in from time to time and maybe I'll even have a spare five minutes or so to keep up on the stories (which I'm really liking, so keep up the good work guys!). Who knows? Perhaps after all this college business is out of the way, ie in the summer, I can return.
As for Angkor himself, 'tis a real shame. If somebody wants, they can continue to use him as an NPC. Kess (and Garrick I assume, though unfortunately I haven't been able to speak to him ) know the plan for him, or you can e-mail/pm me and I might be able to send a reply (but don't bank on it, better to ask Kess :p). Tempus, I'm real sorry about this as I know the plan was for you to follow me. Again; real sorry. I give you permission to use Angkor as you see fit if you want; ie get on to Chandrila and after Nekessla and Garrick, etc.
Sorry folks. Had I more free time, it could have been great. But as the cliche goes; it wasn't meant to be.
Keep up the good work people!
Notice of Absence / ReturnHey everybody, Man the news just keeps getting worse. Sorry to lose you Angkor, hopefully someday you'll find your way back.
And like I said…
I'm writing this from the hospital. My dad had a massive heart attack last night and I caught a red-eye back to Wisconsin to be with him. He seems to be doing all right for the time being, and that's saying something considering he had a tripple by-pass.
Long story short, and I guess short story contradictory, I'm writing to say that I'm not going anywhere. My folks and the hospital both have a net connection. Please don't think me a ghoul, it's just that there's not much I can do right now except wait. I've got all this down time to just sit and think about all the "what ifs?" right now, and those subjects are pretty unsavory. This site has been an escape for me ever since I was lucky enough to find it all those months ago, and you guys are the best friends I've never met so it's important to me that I keep going.
So is that cool if we all just pretend its buisness as usual? If we could that would be super. Thanks everyone.
Notice of Absence / ReturnAngkor, it's a shame to lose you so quickly; I was looking forward to reading your posts. You can still visit the OOC sections even if you don't RP and if in the future you find the time to write again, we'll still be here. We'd still be here even if it were just the original 5 members who started here. :]
Cal, I'm sorry about your father, I hope he recovers well. I'm glad you enjoy it here, and of course we can leave it business as usual.
Notice of Absence / ReturnSorry to hear that Angkor, but it was nice that you at least participated with us. <img border=0 src="Tapatalk - Mobile First Community Platform - Free forum mobile app, Free forum hosting, Managed Hosting for forums" /> I'll chat with Kess, Garrick, and Tempus and see if we can temporarily write you out for now.
Cal, my thoughts are with you, and of course we can leave it business as usual.
Notice of Absence / ReturnI am back now, and should be having RP posts up within a day or two. Zem, I've sent you a PM.
Notice of Absence / ReturnWelcome back, Arai.
Notice of Absence / ReturnWelcome back, Arai. Glad to see the movie quote queen has returned.
Notice of Absence / ReturnAwwwwww, Angkor! Just as I was learning to spell your name right, too! I'll miss you. *le sigh* No more Joey Pants on Tales. ;-)
And Cal, I'm so sorry… I hope you're doing okay. Give your father my best wishes.
Notice of Absence / ReturnWell said.
Bye Angkor! We'll miss you! No more Joey Pants. Promise to visit often. *s*
Han - we could always go back to Plan A, our original storyline before Angkor joined. We can work out details if things have changed too much.
Notice of Absence / ReturnOkay, sounds good, Kess.
Notice of Absence / ReturnAlright everone, here's the deal.
March 5-7. This coming up weekend, I'll be in Orlando. Wanna know why?…
MEGACON 2004!!! :ha!
So yeah, needed to tell everyone that and such. I'll come back though. This is different then from when I went up north and then disappeared off of the face of the earth.
Notice of Absence / Returni will be leaving this saturday, march sixth, and will return the following sunday. march fourteenth, ill be spending the week in new jersey/new york
Notice of Absence / ReturnI'll be gone for an undetermined time. IE, it could be for one week, could be for up to 5. I don't know, I am lacking my computer at the moment, for reasons I won't waste your time with. Point being, the beginnings of my post on Tatooine is on it, and I can't just write a new one. I'll post when I get back, but no biggie, I havn't touched the storyline yet.
Until my return,
Notice of Absence / ReturnSee you both soon I hope.
Notice of Absence / ReturnI will be gone next week from Tuesday 16th and return on Friday 19th. Yes, believe it or not, I'll be away from my computer. I'll be visiting my father who lives in a city 400 kilometers away.
Notice of Absence / ReturnHave a nice vacation! I need one myself.
Notice of Absence / ReturnHey all, Im posting for Kess. Shes away for a week so she wont be around. she will be back on the 22nd.
