I've been gone for over a week, so some of you may wonder what happened, why i disappeared and if i had given up on my projects or decided to run from it all. I can assure you i haven't.
It's just been a crazy, stressful and hectic week me... i'm in the process of moving and that means packing stuff as well as finding a place to move into.. so, while packing up my stuff is a very straightforward activity, the latter has been complicated for a couple of reasons... Due to the market conditions in our area, Mom and i decided it would make more sense to rent a place together.. easier to afford, and i don't really mind as long as i have my own room (and the door locks).
The only issue is i don't have a credit history, and that's turned out to be a much bigger problem than i'd ever thought. We did start looking for a place in advance, but since filling out a plain old rental application doesn't guarantee anything (when one has to go through a real estate agent, not knowing who the owner is), it's made much more sense to have an agent ourselves. Should have been fine except for the fact that they stop returning calls as soon as they find out that nothing comes up if one runs a credit report on me... two of them, we are now onto our third agent (who seems better), and i'm moving my stuff into Mom's storage unit.
So you can probably see how it is for me... always on the phone, running around, not much sleep. Everything else ends up a distant third priority. But i'm fine and i'll make time on the weekend to get some rest and catch up on my usual stuff, the forum and homebrew. I don't know how much i've missed on here but i'll make a point to go over it... i definitely missed you guys
