    I tried, but damn it, I'm just broke. I'm so emotionally screwed-up that I caught myself on Reddit arguing about climate change (talk about Quixotic pursuits). 
    So for anyone who cares, a rundown: I got my heart horribly, terribly unquestionably shredded. Best part --  it was completely by accident and at least 80% my own fault.
    It's a master class in the difference between "existence" and "validity": The pain exists, but I was the one who said "Hold my beer." Everyone around me is expressing concern and skepticism, and I'm all "No, really guys, I can totally get to the window from this branch! See, it'll hold me, no problem! Look, I'm almost there, I can kind of touch the windowsill!"
    Then Mothman flew in and bodyslammed my ass straight out of the tree. Let's be honest, we all saw that ending coming. 
    So yes, I'm in a lot of pain, but no, it's not exactly "valid" to whine too much about it. Good news is, I feel a bit better today, so maybe I'll be back to writing a little later this week. Thanks for bearing with me.

    I know a bunch of people are waiting on me for stuff, and I'm sorry. I've hit a super deep, super shitty depression that just isn't going away this time (usually, these last like a week, tops, and this one has been going on for at least a month). I'm planning to take a deep breath, grit my teeth, and get caught up this weekend, and I appreciate ya'll's patience with me. @HollowCipher, @supernal, +others

    I usually only desire bigger font sizes beyond Valucre's cap when I in turn want different fonts beyond what Valucre offers.

    So, drama drama drama. Internet bill didn't get paid (again), and I couldn't pay it because I'd just gotten the lights turned back on and (barely) kept the water flowing.
    Then, I got a surprise eviction notice. Turns out, my (now ex)roommate wasn't paying the rent either. Rather than paying rent, she drank roughly $1000 worth of alcohol in five days (going theory, based on watching her run up a $110 bar tab in three hours one night). 
    Anyway, I've moved again. Hope I didn't miss anything.

    It may have been noticed that I've ditched (for now) my usual signature of writing in the first person. I'd love to write that way, but I've heard a lot of people find it grating and jarring to be reading a thread of all third-person posts then crash into one of mine in the first person. So I'll probably save that for solo threads, going forwards (or at least threads in which everyone is explictly ok with it).

    Anyways
    Apologies for being inactive @Red the Ambivalent, @desolate, @Mickey Flash. When my turn came up I hit a bad day that left me shaken and then I got swamped with homework. I should be getting around to posts starting tomorrow when I'm in the clear again.

    @Veloci-Rapture and @lilypetals since Ayumi hasn't been online in awhile even after I posted the reminder I'll get the next turn up when I get the chance. Apologies for such the long wait, that round was all my fault for not having a reaction like the previous ones did
