Hey all. Just so it's out there, I was the peckerwood holding up the results this go around.
I'm not sure I've b*tched about this one here, but at work, I've been single-handedly running my side of the accounting equation for the past four months while my colleague sits at home awaiting a surgery yet to be scheduled. As you can guess, that's got me coming in early, leaving late, and working through a lot of my break time in order to make sure nothing falls behind because I take a lot of pride in my work.
Many of you also know that I have a two and a half year old at home, leaving very little (read: no) time between the second I walk in the door and the second I need to switch over to dad mode for the evening. Tack onto that the fact that I have a two hour round trip commute daily, an hour between the time I get home and my son goes to bed to get him fed, cleaned up, and treated to a little quality time, and a self serving need to be hitting the gym and/or a cardio blast a minimum of five times a week, and you can see where a lot of my free time gets eaten up.
I ain't quitting - there's folks out on leave right now who've got deals 1,000x more raw than my own, and we aren't exactly hopping at the moment. I just wanted to put a fair heads up out there as to why I may not step up for a match every show, and why I sometimes hold sh*t up like this. Ain't my intent, but it's a couple of full time jobs trying to hold down a full time job on top of keeping everyone else happy.
The good news? The match is in, I don't hate it, and I'm sorting out a couple of ideas for the next show.
Into your sanctum, you let them in. Now all your loved ones and all your kin will suffer punishment beneath the wrath of God.

I completely feel the busyness. I work 40 hours a week in an office and have been doing freelance editing, usually pumping out 1-2 shows a week. In addition to IWA Mid South, I'm currently negotiating with another independent client, that'll essentially double my editing workload. I have about an hour commute one way. Luckily, my job does allow for a bit of a fragmented work schedule, with sometimes as much as ten minutes between actual work needing done, which has been a great outlet to get roleplaying done, since I can't access my editing tools from work. if I could, I'd probably be working on both jobs at the same time.
it was certainly simpler when I was working physical labor when I was younger to roleplay than now, though.
Stubbornness is perseverance refined. So you have to watch what you say around stubborn people
