I must apologize thoroughly and basically withdraw from attempting to meet up in the future. I received such a torrent of verbal abuse at the very idea I attend from a family member that.. well.. let's just say this person still has just enough pull in my life to make it hell (and does so at every turn). Due to financial shortcomings and bad economy and student loans I am not entirely autonomous with my social life or comings/goings. Yes I'm an adult and have a job and drive a car and pay my bills all that adult stuff, but the verbal abuse was too much for me and I caved.
I'd rather not go too far into it. It angered me to have suggested it and looked forward to it, then not to be able to make the meeting.
Sincerest apologies. From now on I guess I'm just a virtual being.
