Where I've been
Copypasta from the thread in the staff section, I decided that members should also know what's up.
So it's been a month and a half since I last got on.
On January 5th, my father passed away. Then, on the 13th, so did my mother. Some of you know that I was never close (at all) with any members of my immediate or extended family, but after they both passed I realized that I hadn't talked to any of my three sisters, or my many cousins in several years in some cases.
So I actually flew to Florida (which was where they retired to) for the funerals and realized that I've really fucked up my life by not communicating with my family members.
Following the funeral, I visited each member of my immediate and extended family. A lot of them were surprised to see me, and some of them flat out refused to talk to me. I've spent thousands of dollars in plane tickets and hotel rooms over that last month and a half, but I feel that if I can reconnect with my family it will help me in the long run. I'm not getting any younger, at least.
I'm going to try to get back on CL now, and be active again. I'm still in the process of getting some people to talk to me again, and I think my family takes priority over the Internet, so I won't be incredibly active until I get this sorted out.
I apologize for leaving without notice. Truth be told, I'm surprised I can still post in this section.
Hope that clears things up a bit, though.

Sorry to hear man. I'm glad you connected with the rest of your family. But I hope everything gets better for you.

I completely agree. When I was just a little kid, my grandpa was ill and my dad asked me if I wanted to go see him because he was on his last leg. Not knowing any better, I thought he would be okay, and I told my dad to go home cause I wanted to play a game on my game boy. He died later that night. I chose a game over my own loving family.... Ever since then I have taken on the name Red, in memory of my grandfather. If I could go back in time, I would have spent it with my grandpa. I have since wised up and I will never make that mistake again. I'm glad you chose to reconcile your issue and try to become apart of your family again.

It's nice to have you back, but family and life matters come first. I hope the best for you to be reconnected with your family dude.
I'm sorry to hear the recent passing's of your parents.

My dad died 7 months ago, I got to see a lot of my family. I should really talk to my family more often.
