Absence Sheet

The Omskivar

chah, dude
I know I've been dropping the ball on reffings lately, but I just quit my job and although it's going to take a lot to save my grades this semester, I'll be back at it in and around the miracle-working.

I'm putting this here to reference it later, though: IF ANY BATTLE THAT I AM OFFICIATING IS STILL ONGOING COME MAY 19TH, YOU WILL NEED TO ARRANGE FOR AN EMERGENCY REFEREE. Unless something goes terribly wrong (*knocks on wood*), I'll be heading up to another summer of nine week-long summer camp sessions in-between four-odd weeks of training and/or manual labor. While I will still be around in some capacity, such as giving commands, I can't be reasonably expected to keep up with reffings in the meantime, so after finals I'm taking a leave of absence from Ref HQ until the fall.

I know I've been incredibly inactive here the past couple weeks, so I might as well make it official: finals are approaching and I'm also currently swamped with homework and two research papers. I'll most likely be back and active towards the end of the first week of May.

I have my final exams (the two that I actually need to study for, at least) this coming week; I'll try to get my tournament reffing in but my other battles (only one of which is active anyway) may have to be left without a reffing for another bit

I will be out more than likely this next week (in addition to the absence last week). Work has gotten a hold of me, in addition to school, and I am receiving more hours than what was anticipated when I started my job. Sorry for a slightly late announcement.

Hopefully its just this next week, though.

On top of everything else my computer is fritzing, it took me about 25m just to get on this site. I haven't disappeared, I'm just. Partially transparent.

okay so life update: i am super stressed in general. i've had lots of little things keeping me busy on the weekends, and i'm just constantly pooped after work during the week, so i think i'm going to be taking an indefinite break from reffing. apologies to everyone in all the battles i've taken, especially the tournament. if you haven't sought an (/a new) e-ref yet, i recommend you do so.

I plan on keeping up with the battles I'm in, though. Gotta get those sweet, sweet tournament prizes.

We're driving back home over the weekend, so I'll be offline during that time. I should be back Monday, but in case something goes horribly wrong, you'll know where I am. Relatively speaking.

things should be relatively normal now, to those who held out while I failed to ref their battles, thanks to both of you

I'm going to get at least my reffing out this weekend, but this will need to be pushed out a bit more. Had a bit dropped on my shoulders both in and out of work/school and have just been having a rough time.

I am so so very sorry how non-present ive been recently :(

april has sucked for free time, mainly because birthday, finals and sickness

in sickness news: still ongoing, running a fever atm of around 100-101 :(

so much sorrow, but I promise in the next week or so it will (hopefully) get better, #1 reason is that school is ending

I'm going to be away for a couple of days, have to sort out some real life stuff. It shouldn't be a week long, not in the slightest, so yeah.

after a very interesting week I've spent the past two days feeling powerfully anemic. this has obviously impeded my attempts to write much of anything

I'd advise those participating in my tournament battle to get an e-ref
 

The Omskivar

chah, dude
I'll be MIA for at least a day or so starting tomorrow at noonish, just so everyone's aware. Worst case scenario, I don't show up until Sunday/Monday

Right, I've been putting this off for too long.

It's becoming rather plain to see that lately my time is very strictly on budget, so I can't ref as often as I'd like to. I'm still taking care of the tournament battles under my responsibility, as well as any others of those I might have to pick up, but those whose regular battles I'm reffing can very well feel free to get e-refs. Apologies for that.

chah, dude
Okay I've got a final today and then some stuff to tie up, so now the worst-case scenario is I won't be posting anything until tomorrow. I don't have anything going on tomorrow though so that's something

Back in black.
I'll be drowning in homework for the next week or so, so I may be able to get commands in, but Sangfroidish and Music Dragon, I'm afraid you'll have to wait a little while for the next reffing to come through.
