    I fell down a flight of stairs and now everything hurts. Availability/response times are diminished due until I no longer feel like laying in bed all day staring at the windows.

    I have done that and it is terrible. Hope you feel better soon.

    I'm getting a few concerned messages about Irma so I thought I'd post here about what's going on. Obviously I've not been super active as stands, but likely I will lose electricity sometime during the next few days. I might be getting tropical storm weather starting today. So don't be surprised if I vanish off the grid a bit more than usual.

    To those asking me if I'm leaving, I am not evacuating, but please don't panic about this. I'm inland and on the northern end of the state these days, and currently the storm expects to be much weaker by the time it hits me. Category 2-3, most likely, but currently expected to be 2. I'm prepared for this. I don't have evacuation orders and with the current projection of the storm don't expect to. I'd rather brave those chances than get on the road and deal with potential lack of gas on the highway.

    To anyone else dealing with Irma, you stay safe. Especially in SoFlo. I've got people staying there and that's what's probably stressing me out the most about this storm.

    So starting monday night (GMT) am going to be off on a vacation trip for ~8 days. Putting this out there in case I forget.

    You may have noticed seeing me around less lately and I apologize to anybody who's been looking for me, I'll be around, don't worry.

    Out for a few more days it seems. My body has decided to raise two middle fingers at me, and I'm going to be on a flight and bus pretty much between Sep 12 and Sep 13 for about 36 hours total (including wait).

    Ewww.  I know the toll long-haul travel can take on your body - I just recently spent 3 consecutive days travelling from Tennessee to Los Angeles and was completely wiped out x_x

    In this week of Technology Hates Yehn, both the water heater and fridge decide they're tired of life.

    I'll still be around, just with less time while I figure out schedules and possibly replacements...

    Have been less active lately, will be even less active for ... well, at least a week; we'll see after that. I can still do things behind-the-scenes (like respond to messages, update scrolls, or whatever) but not going to be very interactive or visible.

    In this week of Technology Hates Yehn, a m&m update makes Mudlet's Lusternia profile decide it never liked opening anyways. (Maybe I'll log in briefly on a different client or something... but won't be doing much without, well, all the things mudlet scripts do to help out...)

    Family emergency. For the next approximately three weeks, I will answer messages every couple days and be around on an escaping-my-problems basis, but will be dealing with some very emotionally difficult things RL so please excuse any unintended coldness from my end.
  • AnitaAnita Member Posts: 560 Mythical
    Parents are down for the weekend, so I won't be around for tonight to Sunday afternoon! Will be able to reply on discord now and then if I'm super needed.

    Howdy! I've gone from my usual 25+ hours of weekly playtime to 3ish, sorry! I'm preparing for surgery in early November as well as applying to grad schools with applications due around the same time. Yuck! Anyways, I'm trying to stay around and still submit for prestige etc., and I'm still responsive to messages sent to Chirbi so please feel free to get hold of me that way too. Wish me luck!

    I find out the date for my surgery on Monday, should be within a week or two at most. In the meantime between pain and meds and sleep, I might be a little less active than normal. And probably for a few days after the surgery. Messages, forums, discord always work.

    Instead of 'a week or two at most,' once the surgeon saw me they said 'uh, we need to do this TOMORROW.' So, yeah. In 24 hours I will be in surgery. Possible overnight stay, possible home later the same day. Either way, between prep and getting things set up at home, then surgery and anesthesia, I will be pretty out of it for a bit. May still be around tonight if I get everything settled, but after tomorrow morning...

    On the way home from the hospital post surgery. Situation was worse than expected, but they were able to handle and it was a complete success. Will still be hit and miss especially through the first few days of recovery.

    I'm not going to be around this evening and more than likely not going to be about for a couple of days, maybe til the weekend at most.

    I feel like this is a little bit belated, but I'm back in school and dealing with some health issues in the family. My grandfather was in the hospital for most of the summer, and is now safe at home with 24/7 assisted care. I wanted to take the time to say while I'm not around as much, sometimes in my manse, or visibly producing things - They are in the works as I balance all this stuff. I also wanted to thank my support system here in Lusternia for keeping me afloat.

    Going in for the left lung on the 24th, so will not be on until I'm discharged. I'll be on sparingly during recovery, as I'm not to be trusted to make story decisions while under the influence of [drugs/alcohol].

    I'm going to be pretty inactive for a little while, just due to life and whatnot.
  • WeiwaeWeiwae Member, Gods Posts: 442 Divine
    Some may have noticed my presence lacking a bit the last few months.
    I am in the process of moving and it is currently sapping all my mental energy.
    I hope all will be settled by December.
  • SylvanasSylvanas Member Posts: 265 Expert
    Those of you who know me have likely noticed I have been absent. Just letting those of you who still care that I'm totally fine, but I'm on an extended break/absence, possibly forever, maybe only for a short period of time. We'll see.

    If anyone is interested, you can add me on Discord: Sylvanas#4058. (PM me for skype/bnet/etc details if you wish.)

    So where's Daraius been? Well, my good laptop died in August, and my replacement literally can't run Mudlet. Around that same time I got a new job, and I've been back in school studying accounting. Basically, having no access to the QOL systems that made Lusternia playable for me, plus navigating more change in my life than I'm accustomed to, plus bearing more financial burden than I'm comfortable with... makes for an absent Daraius. Sorry folks.  :(
