Sinceeee... the remaining countries seem to not be getting anything done, I say just have the deadline like really soon like, soonest date you can do. and, since it seems like it's kind of dying, maybe you could just cut it short?
Just suggestions 'cause I feel like not everyone will really stay dedicated enough to this to make it to the final round?
First, I really want to apologize for letting the thread die, and I want you to know that this is absolutely not because I lost interest in it;
This is all personal stuff, but I think you guys deserve an explanation, so ... here is a short list of what kept me away from Gaia lately :
1) Medical issues : I've been ill for a few weeks, then I had to see someone for my eyes, and after that, I had 3 teeth removed.
2) Work : because of all medical issues above, I had to work two times harder because I was really really really late. So the past few weeks, I had to stay at the office from 8 am to 9 pm (no lunch break).
3) School : I still have to go to school once a week, and every week I have a LOT of homework to do (1 presentation + 10 questions + at least 10 cases to solve).
4) Family : Grand aunt really sick, parents about to lose their jobs because our Government decided that small medical laboratories should disappear so blood analysis will be done in huge laboraties (more like blood factories, actually), run not by independant biologists but by financial groups. Congrats, France, now people's health is just another business, like cigarettes or alcohol.
5) Boyfriend : I live in France, my BF lives in Belgium. He's supposed to move to France, but for some reason I had the feeling that he wouldn't, so we argued a lot about that and nearly broke up. Twice.
So yeah, I spent the last few weeks (months?) crying everyday and having really dark thoughts.
But now things are getting a little better, and I managed to take a few days off to study (I have an exam on January 10th).
I know this is not fair to you, guys, so as Mei Tsui suggested, I think we should cut it short.
We could make the current round or the next round the final round, what do you think?
I know that I'm asking a lot from you, guys, but would you accept to postpone the deadline to January 12th (the weekend aften my exam)?
That would be greatly appreciated, because right now my life is a total mess.
Also, I would like to reward your patience with a Christmas bonus, so please let me know what you'd prefer (gold or item) =3.
So, if you're still in, please post in the thread and let me know:
- If you accept to postpone the 3rd round deadline to Jan 1th;
- Which round should be the last one (current round or next one);
- What you would like for Christmas (gold or item).
Again, I'm really sorry about this, and I hope you guys can forgive me =S.
I've been really busy with work, since I was hired as a seasonal cashier.
I should definitely have time though, once the holidays are over.
I'm fine with the deadline, don't need anything for Christmas but thank you <3,
and I'm fine with either this round or next. :]
