Actually, make that, been out of state.
I had to suddenly leave and book a not-quite-a-red-eye flight to go back to my home town for a family emergency. I was there for, a month and a half, ish. Maybe a month and three weeks.
I don't want to go into too many details, suffice it to say, I lost someone very close to me, and it's been hard to deal with.
Anyway, I'm back home now, I'm TRYING to find a job that pays somewhat decently, but in my area if you don't have an engineering degree, or are a CEO of some sort, that's not easy to do.
