Good news and bad news. The good news is that after a very long year of paperwork and applications, my K1 fiancee visa to get into the US has been approved! This means I can finally be with my fiance after more than 4 years of being together while being upwards of 1500 miles apart.
The bad news is that this means I will be moving, and due to a lack of funds, I will not be able to take my grandfather’s collection (I’m not even sure all of the specimens would be okayed by customs). I also won’t be able to fund my own collection until I at least get a job down there, after which a lot of those funds will be going toward renovating our new house. This means, while I have more time that isn’t consumed with worry and exhaustion, I won’t really have the means of continuing this blog in the way that gained me my followers. That gives me a couple of options:
-The blog becomes completely inactive and I go back to lurking, much like it has been for the past two months or so.
-The blog is still active, but is mostly reblogs with some original stuff tossed in when I get enough free time and money.
-I’m still reasonably active, but with things not necessarily related to minerals, but still posting mineral-related things as I get the money to fund my collection.
I’m leaning heavily toward the third option, because it opens me up to more stuff and keeps me likely to reblog and post more often without spamming all the other big mineralogy blogs on your dashboards. This all being said, I don’t blame any of you for unfollowing since I’m pretty much done posting what made you all follow in the first place. Thanks for the understanding, you all rock. :)
