My Nexus 4 finally arrived in the mail yesterday. It bothers me just as much as it bothers you that I do not have a ROM compiled to flash onto it yet. Now that my semester at UCF is over I have a small break to explain why my Android updates have been nonexistent and try to catch up on everything.

Looking back to about a year ago I was in a completely different stage of life. I had no need for a job and was living in student housing near campus. My only responsibilites were to do well in my classes. Because of this, I was left with plenty of spare time, hence the updates to the ROM every two days. Although I was 22, I still felt like a kid because life was simple and to be honest I was quite introverted compared to the person I am today.

Today I find myself with a job that I love and am great at. I was awarded for being in the top 2% in the entire company here at T-Mobile last quarter and will strive to continue to do so. I also signed a year-long lease to rent a home near campus where I act as "landlord" to four other tennants. Acting as landlord means the entire funds for rent, electricity, water, cable/internet and furniture are my responsibility. They pay me a flat rate every month for their portion. On top of that I just purchased a Scion FRS. As you can probably already assume, these responsibilites make work one of my top priorities. If I slack even a little bit, everything will crumble and it will affect not only me but also my roommates.

Moving further along my priority list you will find that my health, education, and social life are again more important to me than Android. I try to go to the gym atleast four times a week to stay in shape. I am still a student at UCF and will continue to be until I graduate. And on the weekends you can guarantee I will be out with my friends enjoying their company after a stressful work week. There is so much more to life than what is on a computer screen, I only wish someone would have told me earlier.

So where does this leave Android for me? It leaves it for when I have time for it. I have mentioned many times before that I build my ROMs for myself, not for how many downloads I can get or how many users I can have. If people do happen to enjoy the ROM it is just an added bonus. Now that I do have a small break I will be working on getting my ROM up to date. I already started yesterday by backing up my pc and wiping it to freshly install Ubuntu (it has been having lagging issues to the point it is unusable). I just ask that you please be patient and realize that I do have many other things going on in my life other than just building ROMs.


P.S.
Many of you may have noticed that the download links stopped working on my site about a week ago. Unfortunately all of the files were lost due to circumstances not in my control, hopefully with time I can get things back up and running.

Thank you for your understanding,
Pete
