Save vs. Employment, with a -2 penalty

So I finally managed to land a real job - possibly two real jobs, if my schedule allows - which is both a good and a bad thing. On the positive side, it means that I'll now have income and experience for necessities (like healthcare and, once I leave my current situation, rent), as well as some spending cash for luxuries like game books and miniatures. My other projects, like the LED lightsaber I'm still in the process of building, can also resume to a limited extent.

On the negative side, it means that I'll have less time for gaming... though not none, by any means. I may still be participating in my usual weekly and biweekly games, and at the gaming club's Halloween event, I met two cool players who have expressed interest in playing Vampire: The Masquerade if I run it (using the Introductory Kit). If I don't take the second job, I'll have more time; but if I do, I'll have more money.

Furthermore, the DM for the biweekly 5e session I play in surprised us with an announcement of an early Christmas present: custom miniatures of our characters, made on HeroForge! I'll be sure to post a picture when I get it.

But yes, as things stand, gaming cannot be my highest priority the way it was in university, and blogging about gaming must take a burner even further towards the back. I'll still try to drop by, hopefully with at least one or two posts a month. (I should quit quoting times - it'll only get me in trouble...)
