This year has been off to a terrible start. My financial aid got suspended (something stupid that only community colleges are subject to), and I had to appeal it. On top of that, they decided to add a 2 week delay to all financial aid. I almost became homeless as a result (I couldn’t find a place to rent either). On top of that, my mother found out in mid January that she has leukemia. She was given a months worth of trial chemo pills, which are normally $10,000 a month. She was waiting to hear back on an application to get it at a reduced price. She ran out of medication waiting for this application to go through. This past week they finally approved the application. Things have been really stressful. All three problems have now been resolved, but man… what a shitty start to a new year. I’m hoping to regain some measure of focus and order in my life now. Whew. When it rains, it pours? Maybe.

Not dead, not dead. This is my first semester, so it’s taking quite a bit to get used to being efficient with my time (studying/homework/etc). That, and I took accelerated Spanish. I will NOT make that mistake again. That Spanish class is actually eating most of my time (too much to remember and learn in a short period of time), but it ends early – medio octubre. Should have more free time then. I’m gonna continue taking Spanish as far as it will go. I’m hoping to get a grant to study abroad when I transfer to a larger university. Voy a viajar a España! También, a mí me gusta mucha la PC-Engine. And some Latin American countries too.
But yeah, Black Tiger is working out some ideas for the story for the game project. Things will be slow, for a little bit – but should pick up in October. And full force for winter break.
