News
Spring, 19th Turn, 11th Pass

Upcoming Flights/Runs:
Copper Wonder

Upcoming Hatchings:
Red Ingoth

The Expedition of the previous season proved to be far less dangerous than possibly any before, with a handful of newly discovered species, and plenty of wealth in the way of resources. As the snow melts, the cold retreats, and bright green buds of Spring burst forth, Dalibor sets its sights on the future as Red Ingoth lays her first clutch upon the sands of the Hatching Ground and the Weyr prepares for another hatching full of possibilities.

I started my new job officially today, which is 10 hour shifts, 4 days a week. I'm off Tues/Wed/Thurs, but I raid at night on those nights, and starting in the Fall I will be applying for my FAFSA (grants for financial assistance, for those who don't know US school/government stuff), to try and get my certification for Auto Body and Collision Repair / MIG and TIG welding.

I will not be able to chain-post, most likely, and will be a little slower than usual while I get used to the work schedule (I'm going from 9-5 shifts tomorrow and Sun, to 230-12am shifts pretty much the rest of my work time). It's an adjustment.

Couple this with my Dad having to go in for surgery to get part of one of his kidneys removed for "a mass" which they can't tell if it's cancer or not until they biopsy it (he's had a mass removed before from his prostate, which wasn't cancerous, but I worry constantly about him - he's 65 and a heavy smoker, and cancer runs in the family) on the 25th of this month, and my mental state hasn't been all that great.

Couple this with my boyfriend ripping tendons in his foot this morning and now being on a boot/brace for 2 weeks (which they didn't tell me about until I walked in the door from my first day today, lovely) - and then if that doesn't get better, he's in for surgery....well, shit's getting a little frustrating and making me stressed again right now.

I will still be around, but if there's anything that needs my immediate attention as far as plots and stuff go, please contact Ivy, Captain, Rii or Jenn - all of them have my Discord, and can get hold of me if necessary. Otherwise, my posting speed will continue to be a bit more lackluster than usual.

*Fistbumps* You've got a lot going on, but you're going to get through it. I know it.

Holler at me if you need to vent, you have all the usual ways to get ahold of me.

Update:

Posting speed still slow as balls. Stuff that shouldn't stress me out, is stressing me out. My raid team that I burned a lot of money to transfer for lost half of our group to immature pricks who apparently can't handle being told politely that they need to stop being :20-:30 minutes late to raid every night, and need to stop standing in bad/need to stop tunneling if we're going to have any hope of getting Cutting Edge (killing the end tier boss on Mythic difficulty before the next patch comes out), and decided to leave.

Dad's surgery went well - it was cancer, but apparently they got everything on it and he goes back in for a scan in 6 months to make sure it doesn't come back (they removed the top portion of one of his kidneys and the surrounding tissues). He's also going full-time with Homeland Security (something I've begged him not to do - my dad is 65 and has worked his ass off his whole life). So queue continue being stressed about my Dad having a stroke/heart attack and me not being able to be there if something does happen.

Boss stressing me out trying to get me to give up the three days I put in to have off every week, because 'they need more flexibility' when there's other people begging for hours. I said not a chance, they could fire me if 40 hours a week wasn't enough. Trying to see if they're going to call my bluff and I'll be looking for a new job (this is the same company who has my salaried General Manager boyfriend working 6 days a week, 10-12 hours a day, without paying him OT. How about no).

Constant concerns with car theft - two trucks literally a few houses down from my house were stolen out of the driveways a couple of weeks ago. It's gotten bad enough the cops now have cars parked on our street. I sleep with a loaded shotgun arms-length from my bed and a window with a clear view of my car and any potential targets who might be trying to steal it. The effect that has had on my mindset and on the amount of sleep I get is ridiculous on a scale the handbags I have under my eyes are large enough to put bricks in. Lack of sleep makes me notoriously short-tempered, which is 100% of why you don't see me on the site in the Cbox as much as I usually am.

Add to this near-constant stress of trying to give people productive words that aren't '1600 words and only 100 I can reply to', or 'drama drama drama' followed by 'pretend we like these pairs and then never give you tags for them/take 100 years to answer them and make you worry you're the one fucking it up/you're not interesting enough to thread with anymore compared to other people they like more, apparently', and my muse for a lot of characters has collectively not only crashed and burned, but been buried in the landfill entirely. I'm at this point lucky I haven't quit both my sites and RP entirely.

I'm having a really hard time with a lot of shit right now, and I'm trying to stay active and focus solely on the characters I a.) have muse for, b.) don't have to worry about people lighting me on fire OOC or IC for stuff that happens with, and c.) have Ranking requirements and site-necessary shit to do (i.e. Z'dyn, Ijo, and otherwise). I have literally sat down and went "gonna do all these posts today", see them, lose my muse entirely, and go farm shit in WoW because it seems more productive than giving people words my brain tells me they're going to hate/talk shit about.

So yeah. I'm working on it, this is Memorial Day Weekend so the likelihood that I'm getting fuck-all done before Tues is probably not happening (I work night shift at a convenience store), but I will be focusing on my oldest tags first and going in order from oldest to newest. I also have an Open up with Z'dyn to try and kick my brain into making words. If you've been waiting for 20 years for tags, I apologize - I'm getting to this site as soon as possible first, and then hitting my other (I owe equal amounts of tags on both, for what it's worth). I'm going to force tags out by Tues and if they're crap, I apologize, let me know and I'll try to adjust them if they are.
