This isn't typically something I do. I don't like to make a big scene, but I feel it's somewhat necessary to let people know what's going on.

 

I have been on here for the better part of 4 years and never had a confrontation. However, today, I let anger get the best of me and it's not something I do. I hate to seem like a drama queen, but that's what I looked like today. It really made me think about what was wrong during the day today.

 

There's more to it than that. Without getting into much detail, my uncle is struggling with cancer and a good friend of mine was recently shot, paralyzed, and in critical condition. Between that and the start of the school and other issues, I feel like I'm putting this site too high on my priorities and I need to focus on other things right now.

 

I don't want to seem like this is a big deal or anything like that. I just felt like I needed to tell people. I'll still do my weekly Big Ten blog because I enjoy doing it, but other than that, I won't be around any more for an extended period, at least until I get some other things under control. I don't want to regret not spending time with my family because of a site like this.

 

Hope this doesn't seem too attention-whorish. I do have Facebook on my phone for anyone who really wants to keep in contact or something.

Rude, its all good. FN doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things.

Take care and good luck with your family, friend and school.

Rude ... just give the site a break, tend to the issues most important in your life right now, and return when and if you want. FN can be a great escape from real life, but if you're hiding here to avoid stuff, then that's not a good thing. Best of luck to your uncle and your friend ... and to you.

Nicely said. And there's 2 things that are pretty certain. FN will be here if you want to chat and Slinky will still be a belligerent ****

This. Also, it's good to step back from the trivial things that "get to you" sometime. I know I'm not on here near as much since I "walked away" and when I am here, it's usually just to leave a comment or three and vote on a few TD's (preferably after a good argument read).
