It seems like only a little while ago that I needed guest bloggers because I was going on vacation. And, indeed, it was only a little while ago. However, I’m about to likely disappear for a week or so. I’m not asking for guest bloggers, as in truth I wouldn’t have time to upload their submissions, nor do I have time to give them warning to work on them.

You see, my housing for this semester of university is in utter turmoil. I don’t know where I’m going to live or how soon I’m going to have internet. I seem to keep getting some sort of amazing find that will get me set and ready to go, only to have it fall apart at the last minute. The yo-yoing is frustrating and emotionally draining; I’m stressed and depressed. For the past few days I’ve been babysitting from about 6 AM to 5 PM every day, calling apartment buildings, my university, and trying to pack without knowing just how much room for things I’ll need (or what, in truth, I will need to bring). I have been on Bellwether a total of fifteen minutes and only to apologize to people I had made plans with. I have no internet at my father’s and few chances to use it while at my mother’s.

There are comments I want to respond to, e-mails I need to get to, and all manner of things that just can’t be done right now due to the clusterfuck that is my living situation.

Therefore, all I’m asking is your patience while I get my stuff sorted out, and I apologize for leaving you in the middle of that five-part series.

Thanks everyone for your understanding, and I’m sure I’ll be back again in no time at all.

When I first moved interstate to go to Uni, I found out a few weeks before session started that the place I was going to live at wasn't going to work out, and all the applications for on-campus accomodation had closed months ago.

I did find somewhere, though. Only to have the owner sell it to someone else who then wouldn't renew my lease the next year.

It'll be okay; get yourself some chocolate or maybe an ice cream, and try not to worry too much. You'll get it sorted out. Even if you don't, it's not the end of the world.

Good luck getting everything taken care of; we all go through periods of super-stress, especially when it comes to housing. We might be looking at a house a full year earlier than we wanted to because of some serious allergy problems--and that'll be a headache if it happens.

Just make sure you take some time out for yourself.

I know how frustrating that is.

Good luck.

You can have my patience, but you have to give it back when you're done.
