So I took a big break over the summer because I was preparing to move, again, and the stress of the move on top of my omnipresent anxiety issues was just too much to deal with.  Move is over now, thankfully, and I'm in Lowell, MA.  Still a lot of unpacking to do and my financial state is as precarious as ever, but I'm finally ready to venture out into society again. 

Sadly, my gaming computer died about a month ago and I'm putting all my Christmas money toward a new one.  Any suggestions?  I prefer a laptop, but I'm open to a desktop.  My hard-line cannot possibly go a cent above budget is $2000, but of course I'm trying to keep costs down as much as possible. Any suggestions on where to start looking?

Anyway, I hope to be back in ESO soon-ish.

After much research and debating and hemming and hawing I bought a MSI GP Series GP63 Leopard-428.  Specs: 15.6" 120 Hz FHD GTX 1070 8 GB VRAM i7-8750H 16 GB Memory 128 GB SATA SSD 1 TB HDD Windows 10 Home 64-Bit.  Got it on sale for $1420. Should be here by Wednesday.  I'm sure it'll take me time to set up and get my files from my old computer transferred over but I'm hoping to dip my toes back into ESO the week after next.  Missed you all!
