I have a Switch and BoTW. I have three users (one for each playthrough). I have 185 hours on the first playthrough (100%, save the koroks), 70 on the second, and the third was just barely started.

I called my mom today and had a great conversation with her. I really love her so much. Be sure to do something for your moms today! :)

So, I got the decision on my appeal.


I don't see the point in appealing again.

I haven't yet. I... might be able to.

I know how you feel, Guardian. I'm scared to look at my old, old, old RPW posts. *shudder*

I don't care if they're scarce... I want everyone to come home! :lT.T

I looked through your post history, last one was in 2004:

A thread about dreams; before I joined. :p

The GU, been my internet home for years... though... I hardly come here anymore save to punish bots, and post occasionally. That thread you posted in, GameChamp, makes me long for the old days.

GU was a forum created with many members from AGN splintering off to here. We were all about (re)making games, and such. Our peak was when Seek and... I forgot the name of the game, was popular, but it littered us with immature people.

Regardless, over the years, it felt almost like a family here. I made so many friends through RP, and despite my own immaturity, I felt that people cared about me. A very good place for me to come since my best friends were on the other side of the country (at the time, I was living in New Jersey), and I was having a very rough time making RL friends at middle school. I made a lot in my Junior and Senior years of High School, but... I lost contact with them.

GU's not very strong anymore, but you're welcome to stay. :)

So, update: I was disqualified, and I've appealed. I have no witnesses unfortunately, so I'm going to have to do the best I can.

I have a phone hearing at 2 pm MT on Monday... wish me the best and pray for me.

And if there's anything I can do for you guys, ask.

Yeah, right now I'm having difficulty with the person overlooking my claim. He's cold, has an attitude of "guilty before proven innocent" and his tone suggests I'm trying to work the system. Ugh...

Please pray for me. I really need some sort of income while I'm looking for a job. I cannot starve.

This is what I posted at deivantArt that day:

Quote from: Me
So, this may sound alarming, but I resigned from my job. I'm going over there via bus in about 20 minutes to pick up my stuff and return my badge, etc.

What happened is I woke up at 7:45 am this morning, and I was on final warning for Attendance; meaning one more tardy or absence and I'm terminated. I was in a panic, and I contacted my coach and HR rep via email to see if there was anything I could do. My coach responded with "come in as soon as you can and do your best."

Problem was, I was in such a panic that I felt I could not perform well today. I had a prompting--a feeling to call my HR representative. And so, I did. I had a long conversation with him and he was very kind and understanding. He told me they would have to review the situation to see if I was to be terminated and that he couldn't guarantee it would be done before the end of my workday.

And that would have made my anxiety worse. I let him know this, and he suggested--with a very kind and understanding voice--that I might want to resign (quit) my job because it sounded like, to him, it wasn't being very gentle on my mental stress. I told him he was right, and I made the decision to quit. I sent him an email stating in writing that I was resigning.

As soon as I finished my Unemployment Claim and my call with my HR rep... a heavy burden suddenly lifted from my back. I may not get Unemployment due to my circumstances, but if I do, I will get $276 a week... which is over double what I got last year (which was $105 a week).

I feel like I made a good choice. Quitting because it wasn't the right job for me will look better to employers than being terminated due to attendance. And I have options: IT, Technical Writing, or even getting Vampiress of Italy published. I just feel happier, and this company--I love them, just not the job itself--is so much better than Vivint.

When I get over there, I'm going to also get some phone numbers from co-workers so I have some other friends to talk to.

So, this isn't bad news, it's good news.

Correction: My Unemployment Benefits, if I qualify due to medical reasons, is $279/week.

Recently, it's been hard. Cobra was being dumb, and didn't put my case into their 'queue' until the 17th, a week after I left. My company's coverage ended at midnight of the day I quit. Today, I was finally able to apply for Cobra, but they wanted me to pay $600 a month for my health insurance. I've also been very frustrated with my Unemployment Benefits because I told them about my medical condition and they added in a note about Wednesday/Thursday of last week. I needed my doctor to send medical documentation, but the Department of Workforce Services (DWS) didn't provide one. My doctor wrote something up and then this morning, I got a form.

The slowness of Cobra, and my Unemployment group was really agitating.

However, I talked with a broker who set me up with my insurance before I had my company insurance with a group called SelectHealth. We managed to get me signed up for the same insurance I had before (which I really liked), and we got a Subsidy, which made the monthly payment less than $100 a month. And the marketplace originally was going to make it active on June 1st, but for some odd reason, they decided to make it active on May 1st--a week from today.

So, things are turning around for me. I'm also not poor. Frontier paid me enough that I'm sitting on enough money to survive for some time. I pray that I do qualify for Unemployment Benefits, though because, normally, if a person quits without "good cause" (like medical reasons, etc.) they are not qualified for Unemployment Benefits. My medical reasons and documentation give me a higher chance I will qualify and get paid while looking for work.

I chose Technical Writing out of my options I saw. Why? I've taken a Technical Writing class, I understand technology a bit, and my strongest skill is writing. It makes sense to me. I'm meeting with a counselor today to see what options I have to get a certificate or take more Technical Writing classes at a school to improve my skills, or if my current stuff from my Technical Writing class is good enough for a portfolio. The latter is the least likely.

When I got the job back in July of last year, and started training in September, I knew it was the place I needed to be. But by this month, it was time to move on. Besides, this was a "b" job (there's the abc's to jobs. The "a" job, as in, it's a "a" job to get me income. The "b" job is a "better" job. And the "c" job is my "career" job), and I need my "c" job.

I will also publish a book. I have 100% determination to do that. It'll most likely be Vampiress of Italy since that's my most fleshed out book right now. I just need to stop being distracted by Breath of the Wild. :p

So, that's what's been happening in my life.
