There has been a lot going on in my life as of late. In February I was laid off from my job, crappy as it may have been, and that was weighing on me pretty heavily. I have learned over the years to not go into my personal life all that much, as the hits roll in much better when I’m blogging about gaming (plus who really cares?) but I felt that I had enough here to make a note, if nothing else just for myself.
So naturally I filed for unemployment and naturally, that took forever to get anywhere. Thankfully I had just received a rather large tax return so I wasn’t super stressed out right away. In the meantime I was looking for work, playing video games (yay spare time!) and of course, blogging. I live in a house with a couple of roommates (one of which is my best friend) and one of those roommates had decided it was his time to go. This coincided with my Sister being unhappy with where she is staying, so we’ve all come to the agreement that her and her husband will move in with me. This is good for more than one reason, the obvious one being that none of my bills go up because there will still the same amount of roommates, but also because 1) I love my Sister and her company and 2) her husband is a fellow gaming nerd. They aren’t due to move in until later in the month but I thought it was worth jotting down.
The other portion of that is that they (my sister and her husband) own a Tech repair/support business here in town, and up until now they were still getting established. They have been running for a while now and seem to be building up a reputation in the valley. Because of this fact, they had expressed a desire to expand, and with that comes the need for more hands. For now I’m just helping out (I’m actually writing this from the office), but I’m hoping that with continued growth this can turn into a full-time position, and that will balance my life out again.
In other news, I have made a couple of adjustments to the site. You may have noticed that I utilize the random banner feature, so that each time you visit the page (or refresh or visit sub-pages) that the banner changes randomly. I only had up a couple of banners previously, just testing it out. I have now added a couple more images so that there is more randomization options.
I’ve also discontinued the “state of the game” column as I notated in my last post, and as such I have changed the page dedicated to that to be something that I can continue to use. My plan is to go through all of my old posts and find anything that has a running theme or is a continuing story line (such as play-throughs of games or posts that use similar titles/formats) and add links to those posts from that page which is now titled “Ongoing Series Posts”.
That’s all I wanted to share. As always, thanks for reading!
