As you may know, I left Aedre with a job to inform you all that I would be leaving this site for good. Well, I had a slight change of heart. You see, I thought about this character whose account I'm using to post this thread, and asked myself "Couldn't he be of some use...even momentarily?" Perhaps the answer to that is yes, and I hope it is. Here's why:
This site needs an event for the Magic Council, does it not? The Inner Circle still has not done much lately, and perhaps because their second seat (me) has been away, which sucks, honestly. Thankfully, I managed to make the most of my opportunities, and construct an ideal schedule for myself from now, until university starts (September 14th). During my time in university, it will be rather impossible for me to go online during Monday and Thursday. Tuesday is not as busy, though I prefer to use that as a study day when the time comes. Wednesday, I only have an hour of school, while Fridays I have off. You may be asking yourself now why I have just given you a summary of my future university schedule. Well, here I go with another story:
I am giving myself back to this site specifically for supporting the Magic Council and their activity. They must do more, and I am here to help. I know long absences often lead to the removal of special positions like this one, but trust me when I say I should definitely be an exception. My absence was forced. There was nothing I could do about it. I was scared, family issues were flooding my daily routines, university preparations were worrying me, and job opportunities were making me miserable- even now, there is not much to gain; everything is taken. Luckily, there is an escape route I have discovered for this mess, and that is to commit to a work-study program. That's right! This September, until the end of April, I will be working for the university I attend, which will limit my time again, but I'm sure I will still be able to fit nights in for this site.
Onto the family issues:
My family (including aunts, uncles, cousins, and second-cousins included) and I have a close relationship with each other. We visit each other weekly, and make the most of the times we share. Well, I have barely been able to do that lately, and they have gotten rather mad at me for it because I have set them aside for selfish purposes. To regain that respect, I started visiting them a lot more often than others in my family have (which obviously cost me a crazy amount of time). After several encounters, we figured travelling so frequently was too expensive for me, and so we just organized a huge family reunion, instead. Our system for seeing each other has changed since then, and now I only visit my big family once every other week. To you, this is beneficial because I now have more time on my hands.
Onto the university issues:
I have just been working my butt off for this, truthfully. The program I'm taking is an honours specialization for Law, and the work frightens me. I almost have to ace every course given to me, which is why even now, I research the classes I have enrolled myself in. This is the mindset of an optimistic freshman, ladies and gentlemen. I need incredible grades so I can get into an awesome law firm when I grow up, and so I required a lot of focus. Thankfully, I found myself some very experienced tutors for a cheap cost, which somewhat settles that issue.
Onto job issues:
Do not move to Canada if you are looking for part-time jobs please. I have been researching jobs for months, yet I have no luck so far aside from the work-study program I was accepted for somehow.
This site has meant a lot to me for over a year now, so please let me keep my position. I am willing to make the best of the council for you guys so you people have one more group to look up to while role-playing here: a better experience. For those of you who knew me as Kichi, you know my goal on this site was to simply make others happy, so give me that chance. I know staff will probably have to discuss these matters, but the effort surely counts.
Everything aside, I am back, but just for the Magic Council. I really do not have the time for any regularly active roles like a legal or even dark Mage. All I want is to return as a helping hand for the Magic Council.
