I am no longer active on Livejournal (I'm slowly coming back though). If you sent me messages etc. I most likely have not seen it, I'm still going through them and I'm sorry for the lack of replies. If you need me for something, make sure to send me a message via email (amore.carnivoro[@]gmail.com) *Just remove the [ ]. It's the fastest way to get to me, otherwise it might take a while.

I am slowly coming back to Livejournal, there is much I have to fix since I left it. I'll post once in a while, but I'm more active in either Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr. Use the e-mail icon on the sidebar to contact me, I don't check my inbox on LJ much; that's the fastest way for you to get to me. Do NOT email me about anything related to my communities (such as cauchemarshoppe), I will not answer there. Don't abuse this either to spam me. Thank you.

So it's official, I'm withdrawing from college to start training for HHA certification. I'll hopefully have a full-time job by the end of this year, and I'll start working for my CNA certification and then license. I'm about 20K in debt, which I have to start paying back March-April of next year. It's a big step for me, mostly because I will consider going back and finishing those two semesters I needed for my degree; the other is because my sister is already certified (and going for her license), and I don't want to stay home and mope about how much of a failure I was. The only reason I couldn't finish college was one thing, attendance. My grades were good, my GPA was close to a 4.0 and the work was pretty easy for me. However, I can't stand being stuck in there, waiting. Like I said, I'll go back as soon as I have a stable job(s), and I start making payments towards my debt. There are legal matters going on in my family that I can't disclose, but I can say that we're all running risks of being separated for a good decade if it comes down to it. My sister and I want to be ready to take care of our brother and living expenses of the apartment, should our parents no longer be in the country. It's hard on my sister the most, because she feels she has to carry the burden alone, and I don't want her to. My brother is still underage, and it's still a couple of years before he goes to college. We haven't talked about it either, and I feel like I have no right to tell him to go to college or not, because I couldn't even do that. Wish me luck, in all that I do from now on. Whenever I do have a full-time job, I'll be less and less online for a few months. It's a small sacrifice, a lot of things will be put on hold too. But I'm working hard towards these goals, because I want to be prepared should anything happen, and for myself of course.
