Planetside 2 - Doomblade3890 (Relatively) Innactive

Hello everyone, it's me, Doomblade3890. On Monday, I start back at college with the 2018 Spring Semester. On top of that, since we're short-staffed at work (and since I need the extra money), I'll be taking on an additional shift (putting me at 4 days a week at work as opposed to the usual 3 a week I do during the school semesters). Unfortunately, my boss has me working on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. This wouldn't be a problem for PS2 Night Ops, except that I work second shift, which lets out at 9:00 P.M., midway through ops.

To that end, I'll be relatively inactive for the PS2 ops. I say relatively, because with the new year, our annual vacation and personal day allowance gets renewed at work, so I'll schedule to have my vacation during the university's Spring Break so I'll have the entire week for all three PS2 ops, as well as using a personal day on another Friday this semester so I can attend an additional one.

In the meantime, I'll be attending The Ascended's night ops on Wednesdays so that I can at least represent VCO to some extent. Hopefully, I can work something out with the [tas] crew so that I can squad lead over there despite not being a TAS member (after all, I got a Squad Leader tag, and I intend on utilizing it!).
Christian and proud.

No problem... need that green to stay alive. You can always help represent and recruit by leading squads/platoons during off-hours.

During the last TAS OPS, someone over there made a pun and someone else from TAS said "Where is DoomBlade? We need more puns..."
VCO's Designated Old Fart and Grandfather figure...

OK, wow. I thought I had an innactivity thread that was left unresolved, but never got around to checking it until now (and I apologize for that to the VCO leaders). However, I'm NOT signing it just yet.

Bit of a status update. While it was true that I was scheduled for Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays for evening shifts, things have changed. In February, our department got shut down and we were sent to other departments in the store. I stuck with my Tuesday/Friday/Sunday unavailability because that's what I was so used to at the time, but realized that I don't have to stick with that anymore. After shifting my available days to work around, my boss now has me scheduled on different days, which is why I was able to start attending VCO ops in the past several weeks.

However, I'm still leaving this unsigned. I have one week left for class, after which I'm starting final exams week. During that time, I have several projects due. Two of said projects are due in a couple days, another two are due by the end of next week, and then I have final exams. Add that to the four days a week where I'm working 8-hour shifts AND the regular assignments I have to do for those weeks, and you have full-blown crunch time. I probably will attend a night ops or two in the coming weeks, but I'm leaving this unsigned because I'm not certain at this point. I'm going to see how things play out within the next few days/next week to see how things go as far as getting assignments done. If I still have a substantial workload, I may end up skipping night ops for a couple of weeks.

After April, the school semester will end, and I'll enter full-time work at my job for the Summer. My boss has been pretty good with my schedule so far, so hopefully my additional day of work won't get me stuck on a system where I'll be unavailable for PS2 ops. I'll ask her to schedule my days off randomly so that I'll have a good chance of having at least one night to do ops, and with my current seniority, there are days where I'm getting off at 7:00 so I can attend ops even on days where I work. Here's hoping for an active Summer VK of PS2 ops with VCO.
Christian and proud.
