Sad to hear EPIC is out for this year, but I'm glad that this is also a relief for Linc. Stay safe everyone. Love you all. grouphug
Sorry to hear. Thanks to everyone in this community and I hope you're all staying safe.
Total played time as Soldier: 14 hours LOL
On a personal note, I want to admit something: I'm kinda relieved to be forced to take the year off.
We usually kick off our planning for Expo around Oktoberfest. Well, that's about when Kyle was killed. None of us have done much planning. In fact, we're months behind where we should have been to put Expo together for 2020. To catch up now would mean several full days of work for me in April, which is stressful when I just lost my job and should be focusing on other things. I also have no idea if I'd be able to take those days off for a new job.
And setting all that aside, I doubt I'm emotionally ready to host an Expo without Kyle. These last couple years especially, it was the one time I could count on him hanging around the house for longer than a conversation. I feel like I've made a lot of progress the last few weeks, but not that much.
Kyle had most of his Expo badges hanging from a pencil sharpener by the closet in his bedroom. I put them in a shadow box for the service, but I took them out again now and have them hanging in my office. Last weekend I went up to the attic and looked at a box of his stuff up there. At the bottom of it, I found his 2010 Expo badge. I came downstairs and counted them for the first time: he was missing 3 more! I was a bit amused so I texted Hendricks about it and he told me Kyle was super salty about missing some of them. Guess I have a small project this summer.
