State of the Dragon: The Public Announcment  
About a month ago, I made a friends-locked post about this; now it's time to turn the cards face up.

quelonzia and I are separating.

On Friday, she'll be flying to the Philippines for business. Immediately thereafter, I will be moving out.

This is not a divorce. We are not "breaking up". We still love each other; gods, do we love each other. We still want to be together.

However, since I graduated from CSUMB in 2003, I have not held a full-time job for more than three months; they've all been short-term contract or temp positions. My current part-time retail position barely lets me pick up my prescriptions and the occasional grocery run.

She needs to know that, if something happens to her, I can actually survive.

I need to know that, too. I wish we didn't have to do this, but, honestly, until I make some drastic change in my situation, I'm just going to keep spinning my wheels.

The separation will continue until I have a permanent, full-time job that lasts more than six months.

Thanks to thoughtsdriftby, I have a place to stay until I can get my shit together.

I will do everything in my power to insure than the duration is as short as I can make it.

Again, good luck to you there chief. Hopefully the situation is indeed as short as possible. Let us know if you need anything eh?

This. Sucks.

All the best with turning this around.

*Hugs* I want you to know that my thoughts are with you, and also with Quel. I'm hoping for the best for both of you, and that things will pick up for you, my friend. I'm always there should you need an ear to talk into. :)

All the best to you, sir. THis is one of the many times in my life I wish I lived closer to a friend, and was in a position to help materially.

Best of luck. I would keep my ears open for job leads, but we're on opposite coasts... :-(

Honestly, if you stumble across something in the Earth Sciences/Hydrography/Mapping arena, let me know. I don't care WHERE it is.
