Just an update on my previous post:
While we still don't have a firm date for my store's closure, a letter recently sent out to all of our store team has listed the store's closing date (and our termination) at April 16th. There is still so much to do between now and then.
With regards to my wrestling, I am still limiting myself to wrestling in the Milwaukee area indefinitely.
I don't yet know what the future holds for me, whether it's going to another store within the company or starting a whole new career somewhere else. Only time will tell.
As many of you have probably already heard by now, Toys R Us has decided to close 182 of it's US Toys R Us and Babies R Us locations. Well I was just informed last night (and it was confirmed this morning) that my store is one of the ones on the chopping block. I won't say which one it is (unless you ask me in a private message) but this affects quite a few aspects of my life, including my wrestling. So, effective immediately, I will be limiting myself to the Milwaukee area and holding off on ALL Chicago area wrestling until I find a new store to work at. I know this is a blow to all my Chicago area friends, but right now, until I get to my new store, my wrestling will be limited to the Milwaukee area.
Thanks for understanding.
Well, guys, as much as I hate to do this, my planned trip to NYC for May of this year has been cancelled. We had a $4,000 plumbing repair bill happen, plus my hours at work are being cut, so I can't make it. I apologize to anybody I had made plans with, but this stuff happens. And regrettably, I don't know when I will be returning to NYC.
Ok, guys.... the verdict is in....... my 2018 Travel is as follows:
The first few months of 2018 are mostly going to be around home..... which means I can make a trip to Chicago almost anytime as long as my work schedule allows.... with the exception of Jan 13-15 when I'm entertaining an opponent I've been talking with for months. So here's the rest of the dates:
May 18-21: NYC
Sept 21-24: Michigan (city TBD)
My 2018 Travel will soon be finalized. I feel like the Olympic Committee trying to choose a host city. So here are the cities/states I will be visiting:
-Chicago (can do almost any time with enough notice)
The trips to Michigan and NYC will soon be finalized, around Christmas and will be released around that time. Keep in mind these are extremely short trips, only 4 days long..... so if I don't get to everyone I want to, don't feel bad. Trips to the Chicago area are on request, but we are at the mercy of my work schedule.
I regret that California, Arizona, Minnesota, and Florida didn't make the cut. However, if you live in these states and are able to make a trip over here, I'd be more than willing to meet up. Please keep in mind that I can't host, so we will need to get a hotel, and I do require at least 3 weeks notice because of work.
Thanks again, guys!
With my trip to NYC just a few days away (can't wait) I'm nearing the end of my selection process to find my victims for the trip. I won't name any profile names, but the lucky victims will be notified soon. I already have one guy confirmed for this Saturday morning. Trying to nail down a guy for Friday night and Saturday afternoon. Stay Tuned! Man, I wish this trip was longer but it's not!
This is one of my biggest pet peeves: guys leaving me hanging! I have been left hanging quite a bit lately! Some guys seem interested in a match, and then they don't talk to me for months on end. There was one guy from another website (Global Fight) from the UK. He strung me along for months. I sent him several messages over the course of that time. He never replied until one day, and in that reply he essentially told me to Fuck Off! I've also had guys block me for no reason or notice.
1. If you have a problem with me, take it up with me, don't just block me without notice or a reason. Let's talk about it!
2. Don't string me along for months pretending to be interested and don't contact me. I know stuff happens, but even a little not is appreciated!
OK, guys, I've decided that enough is enough and it's time for me to reveal something about myself that I have only told a few others on this site:
I am Autistic.
Back in 2003 I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, a high functioning form of Autism.
If you want to know more about this disorder, you can look it up on Wikipedia or Google it
However, there are a few things you need to know about me related to this disorder:
My "Obsessions" are:
One thing that could be a challenge for other people to handle:
I can sometimes get nervous and call, IM or message people multiple times in one day. I am not TRYING to push people away intentionally. I'm slowly getting better at this.
Also, whenever someone decides to "leave" me (like block me or stops responding to my messages for months on end, it HURTS. It takes a while for me to recover from it, but I do eventually.
ok. I've said my piece, now it's up to you guys. I realize I might lose some buddies and possible matches over this, but at least now my conscious is clear and I've come clean. Although I wish I would've done this a LONG time ago.
Ok, guys! I'm officially back in action and ready to go! Let's make this happen! I'm especially looking for guys to mess around with (including guys who wanna cheat on their spouse!)
Ok, guys, since the MRI came back (pretty much) clear, that means I will be ready to return to action soon! Starting Tuesday, August 15th, I will be available to start talking about hooking up! Looking forward to getting back into action!
Hey guys! For a very brief time (Oct 6-8- Arriving on Oct 6 and departing on Oct. 8) I will be in NYC. I have one guy lined up so far. I need to make the most of my time there so anybody that can meet up relatively soon after I get into the hotel (around 4pm on Friday Oct. 6.... or relatively early in the day on Oct. 7 would be awesome!) Wish I had more time, but I don't.
The good news is... there's no tears or strains or sprains or anything like that. So I will not need any surgery. I got a cortisone shot this morning, so that should take care of the pain for a while. HOWEVER, as a precaution, I will be putting a hold on real-time wrestling activities until the fall. Sorry to disappoint everybody.
Had my MRI this morning (7/10/17). Was in the tube for almost an hour. Now we play the waiting game for the results. Results should be coming from the Orthopedic Specialist's office in 9 days. However, I am not holding my breath that it will be good news. I anticipate needing surgery, and a long recovery period. Like I said,.... official results coming in 9 days. Stay Tuned!
