Good news / Bad news
« on: June 06, 2018, 02:11:37 PM »
So the bad news first, that's always nice, knowing you have something to look forward to...  (And some may not find this news all that bad, heh)  But I'm probably not going to be as active on here as I usually am.  I can pop in and make sure all's well, of course, but my limited free time is going to become a LOT more limited.

The good news (for me, heh) is that I'm going back to school.  I'll be starting college classes next week toward the goal of becoming a CPA, with a long road ahead, starting with some incredibly droll prerequisite classes over the summer (English and Government).

Thankfully Revisions are in the bag for this year, and I finished a big PT update, so those are already taken care of.

Did you seriously just post this a half hour before I stick my nose in to see that the place somehow still exists?

What a testament to this game, it's players and this site's diligent and selfless staff.

Aw man, congrats! As someone who dived back in to get a Masters... may it pay off more than the student loan debt! ;)

Good luck! I kinda know what you're about to go through, have my accounting degree and before finishing my masters I actually got a better offer to do something else with my career so moved on from the CPA path, and am only looking for my MBA at this point for my new path.

Thankfully the community college classes aren't too bad, but when I move up to Cal State University... yeah, we'll see how that goes, haha.

Niiiiiiice!  :)  I've thought about that too, most likely I'll look at my options once I get to the Bachelor's, thought I would like to eventually go for an MBA down the road.

Good luck Creed!  I went back for my bachelors in my early 30s - it's tough (especially with work) but it's very worthwhile.

Best of luck to you Creed. I hope you find success in this path.

Geez!  I am super impressed with how everything has unfolded for Raw Deal and it's faithful players.

If Edge is still a good superstar and Page is also competitive I might need to dive back in.

well edge is good, the leader remake is situational, the edge legend version is very good, and Paige is good once you get used to her tricks....so welcome back!!
