I'm done.

I've resigned from my staff position for MFF. I have found that I have a choice- I can either take time off for the convention, or I can go home for Christmas and see my family; not both.

Given the current climes amongst the people here, my family wins. No contest.

There were, of course, other reasons that influenced the decision immensely. However, I don't think this is an appropriate venue for that. The involved parties know how I feel about the situation, and I don't want to stoop to the level of mudslinging.

I wish I could say it was a good run; and despite what some might think, I do step down with something resembling regret. I don't like walking away from committments or responsibilities. The situation, however, has left me little choice. I value my sanity and my family more than I value a promise made to someone that no longer respects me.

If anyone has anything; anything at all to say to me. Please, by all means. Say it. I don't cry easily.

Have to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em. Know when to walk away... know when to run.

All I want to say is, I am sorry that you had to make this choice.
If this is the only reason to decide to leave the MFF crew, well, you made the right choice, Family first.
Still, in the basest terms, sucks.
More vacation next year?
One can always hope.

Hey there Kestral,
Family always comes first, it is a shame that you won't be able to staff this year's MFF though as I was really hoping to see how you were going to run the Art Show.

Maybe next year we can work something out

If you need to talk to anyone, shoot me an email at takaza (atboing)wolfhusky.org.

It's sad that you had to leave, and it's sad that it was a difficult decision, but good for you. In a position like that, it's best to step down before it interferes more in your life.

I believe ou were the director of the MFF art show, correct? May I ask who I should speak to reguarding any future art show questions in your steed, if you know that is.

Yeah, family is mucho important, I know my entire Christmas season is doing the 'Tour de Illinois' as that is where my immediate family memebers live.

I was the Director, yes. I have my suspicions on who will step up and take the position, but that remains to be seen.

If you have any questions before the conchair and board announces a replacement, you may email artshow@furfest.org. If it goes to me, I will answer questions to the best of my ability. As soon as someone is chosen, I will have that email point to them. The new Director may want to change things, but at this late date, I imagine the procedures will stay much the same.

I don't know. I've washed my hands of it. I'll ease whomever takes the position in as much as I can, but I'm done.

I'm sorry that you felt it was necessary to leave the staff. Hopefully a little time away will bring back your cheery side again.

In the whole scheme of things, family is most important! :)

I hope you're feeling better soon!
