I guess it's been a while since I posted a life update of any kind, but I have some big news, an achievement, and a recap.
Big news: I got a new job! I had an interview last Thursday and was offered the job today. I accepted the offer and put in my 2 weeks' at my current job. I will be going to work for Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth doing IT things(LAN Technologies Specialist will be my title, sounds neat). It's closer than my current job and won't be micromanaged or a nationwide call center for utterly non-technical people, so it should be a pretty big improvement. Also comes with lots of time off because of the whole small University thing. Looking forward to that, though I will have to be there an hour earlier(with more flexibility on tardiness) and I will need to get some nicer pants to wear. Woo!
Achievement: This one will mean more to those who play or have played Destiny, but I finally managed to make it all the way through the Crota's End raid, solo, without dying. I already had the Flawless Raider achievement from a run in Vault of Glass a while back(Thanks again, @RoadBlock! Other people there but nobody from RT as far as I remember), but this was my first time doing it completely alone. I have been running the solo raid at least once a week(more recently twice, once normal and once heroic) since December and have collected everything I know of as far as special items. Took forever to get a Crux, the normal mode ship, and a Black Hammer. So yeah, that was kind of a big deal. Just did it on normal mode, which probably should have happened a long time ago but dumb things kept happening. I am very close to repeating it on Heroic.
And the Recap: Went to Canada for TO:Uncon a couple weeks ago. Lots of fun, great time and very relaxing. It will be sad to not have this event to look forward to anymore, but I'm sure people will still find a way to hang out, and I'll be there if I can. Maybe not WinTO, though, not sure I can handle the frozen wastes. I definitely prefer that kind of setting though, because everybody can just hang out and have a good time without a bunch of things keeping everybody busy and trying to figure out where everybody is. Just people hanging out in one spot and doing whatever. It would be nice to have that at RTX, but it's just such a different event with so many people that it doesn't work that way. Great send off to the event, and definitely something I needed. I've felt so much better about a lot of things since that weekend, so I'm just going to hold onto that and wait for the next time I get to see everybody! Also, I got the RocketWhore train started since @john wasn't there, and it was beautiful. So many green drinks.
