Hello, my friends!

It’s that time of year again, and just like last year, I will be sending out Christmas cards to all my friends! Unfortunately, due to financial and time constraints, I will only be sending cards to people in the United States and Canada. To all my other friends in the world, just know that I still love you and wish you a very happy holiday!

If you are interested in receiving a Christmas card from me this year, just send me your name and address to [email protected]

:) Happy holidays!

Peace, love, and gaming.

Hey, folks! No real update today, just wanted to show you guys my sparkly, new blog I just started up! Basically, it’s a place not attached to my podcast where I can just write random thoughts and stories from my life. So just in case some of you were wanting to know a little more about me, here ya go. :)

You can check it out now! A bit bare, but… Inside A Suggestive Mind!

Those of you with no interest in this… welp, sorry!

BlizzCon 2013.

This year was supposed to be the first year, out of the 7 years it has been around (counting this year’s), that I would have attended BlizzCon in person. The first time I would have had an opportunity to meet a number of my friends from WoW, Twitter, and the podcasting community, some of which I’ve known for several years. But none of that is happening.

Today is November 6, 2013. BlizzCon this year is taking place on November 8-9 in Anaheim, CA. But I’m sure most of you know that already. Twitter, Facecbook, Tumblr, and pretty much anywhere else you might run into WoW players (and the other hordes of Blizzard Entertainment gamers) has been flooded with an excited buzz, as people finalize their plans to head to California for the event. Even as I type this, a lot of people are on planes, or already nestled into their hotel rooms. Some people have even met up with other fellow convention goers. I’m not there.

I’m not even entirely sure why i’m writing this. I have no point to make, except for the fact that I’m miserable that my friends are there having a good time. At BlizzCon. I was supposed to go this year. I had the money. I had it all planned. I was excited.

But as the majority of you know, life never goes the way I want it to.

So, I’ve decided to take a temporary blackout from Twitter, just until everyone is back home, behind their computers. I want to avoid the pictures, the chatter, the videos, as much as possible. Really, I just want to keep my heart from breaking any more than it already has.

Am I being selfish? I’m not sure. I don’t care.
I’m not even sure if any of you care.

Despite my insane jealousy, I do hope you all have fun. I know many of you plan to attend the meetups, and I hope you make memories that you will never forget.

Have safe trips, have fun.

So, maybe I’m a little late to the party, or maybe not, but I just heard about this WoW Podcaster Tournament of Epicness that RivalCast Media is putting on. I think it’s pretty neat, and I already went and voted for my favorites (some categories were really hard to choose from). However I did have a beef with how some podcasters got matched up. Like… let’s see… anyone who has to go head to head with anyone from The Instance or CtR. Ouch.

BUT ANYWAY I urge you all to head over to the RivalCast Media site and vote for your favorites! It’ll be interesting to see who comes out on top.

Also… apparently I’ve been gone for too long because there were at least 3 names on the list that I didn’t recognize at all. Oopsies.

Just an update: INTERNET COMING SOON. Hopefully.

Peace. Love. Podcasting.

Hey guys, Jan here. It is hard to believe that is has already been almost 4 months since I posted the last episode of Something Suggestive… and even longer since I actually was in an episode of my show (since the April 1st show was all Rho). It goes without saying that I love you all and appreciate all the support and happy vibes you’ve been sending my way the last few months. Some of you know me and my situation better than others, but for those who are still in the dark, here is a little bit of an update on what’s been going on.

In late April I moved out of the apartment that I shared with my ex and into a place of my own. A smaller, cheaper, somewhat slummy place where I have been unable to afford/get internet, which was fine since I didn’t have a computer anymore anyway. I was able to communicate through Facebook and Twitter, etc. through my phone whenever I was able to find a good spot for WiFi… but then my phone bit the dust, and I’ve been without one since late May. Yeah. I pretty much live under a rock. I’m still working in the same retail store full-time, where I did somewhat recently get a raise, but things have been pretty tight.

Recently a very good friend of mine (who will remain anonymous since I’m not sure if they would want me to tell who it is) gave me their old computer after they upgraded, because they are amazing. So that’s a step in the right direction! I still have no phone or internet, but I now have a computer capable of playing WoW and doing all my podcast stuff when I actually get internet! Huzzah! For now though, I’ve been ninjaing my boyfriend’s mom’s WiFi and using his laptop to check Facebook and Twitter, and watch stuff on Vine and Hulu…

BUT… here’s some news. I am moving AGAIN! The boyfriend and I just put down a deposit on a new apartment, which I’ll be moving into in the next week. It’s a two bedroom like the one I’m in currently, but it’s almost double the size… for the same price. I’ve known the landlord for a while (he’s the owner of a Mexican restaurant here in town and runs a few other businesses) and in exchange for reduced rent and only having to pay one utility, my boyfriend and I will be in charge of cleaning the building (laundry room, hallways, mowing the lawn, etc.), so I’ll be saving around $100 a month in bills.

So… slowly but surely, things are looking up. Boyfriend has a good chance at getting a sales job that he just interviewed for, so if that pans out, things will be golden. Hurray!

So yeah, this has gone on long enough… just wanted to post an update that was longer than 140 characters. I just want to say thank you to all my friends who have been so patient with me and haven’t abandoned me. Rho, Marconin, Vahete, Vitae, Araselo, Liz, and everyone else who has made me laugh and smile in these tougher months, you’re all amazing. And of course, Kyle, I love you.

SO YEAH THAT’S IT FOR NOW THANKS GUYS.
Hope to be back soon. <3

P.S. I GOT ANOTHER KITTY! She's a baby, her name was Cyan... but now it is Muffin. Or something.

** EDIT ** Here's a picture! This is when she was 5 weeks, she's about 9 or 10 weeks now. Almost doubled in size. :3

Those of you who follow me or the show on Twitter or Facebook may already know this, but due to recent changes in my life that are beyond my control, I am forced to take another break from the show. Hopefully my situation stabilizes soon… but we’ll see. Thank you all for the love and support during this difficult time in my life. I love you all.
