"Don't wait up, I won't be coming home"

I'm putting this journal on hiatus.



Since I am sure you guys are used to me not being around, I suppose this is less of a note to you all and more of a note to myself to stay away from LJ. :)

There is a lot of proverbial spring cleaning that I need to do in my life, from little things like finally answering my backlog of RL emails, to middle-sized things like working out some health insurance stuff, to really big things like figuring out what I'm doing with my life when my current job ends. It doesn't actually end until next year (unless I get fired, lol *knock on wood*) but I'd like to have some kind of plan for a "next step" by this fall.

Right now I'm thinking graduate school for an MFA in creative writing (oh, why is it that I have no interests that are practical and financially feasible?). So. That's my big project for the summer! --> Revise two of my original short stories to a point where I'd actually feel confident putting them through the application process (this is going to take forever, LOL). But who knows ... maybe I'll decide to become, I don't know, a roadie. Whatever! This September is my personal deadline for figuring that shit out. ^-^

I have no intention of staying away from LJ forever--I would go insane! Although I definitely won't be posting again until fall, I'll try to drop in and comment occasionally before then. I definitely don't want to lose touch with all of the awesome people around here. (Plus, I have all this wonderful feedback I still need to reply to--thank you, guys! I will get to that soon, and I apologize for not having gotten to it sooner. :( ). And Koffee Klatch, you are out of luck, because me and my cooties are still going to make time for B:TAS =P

So ... I think I've covered everything? I hope everyone has a great summer. I will miss and think of you all!

p.s. I can't believe I picked the summer The Dark Knight comes out to get my act together and go off and focus on RL. Great timing, Christine! I am going to miss all the fandom excitement *sob*

Yep, that would be withdrawal setting in already ... *waves*

I completely understand. Good luck with getting things in order. Let me know if you want any help editing your writing. I'd be more than happy to look it over. :-)

Wow, I can't believe it's nearly been a year since I made this post! Thanks for the wish of luck and the offer of help. That was really thoughtful of you. :D I ended up getting into a program I really like, so it all worked out in the end! IIRC, you were also applying to grad school? Whatever you're doing now, I hope it's all going well. :D

I'll miss you, but it's always best to deal with RL over fandom! *hugs* and good luck!

RL has always got to be a priority! *hugs* We'll be around and still messing up the joint when you have more time, I'm sure. :)

*hugs*

I'll miss you! But, alas, Real Life does take priority over fandom.

*glomps* Good Luck with everything! :D

Forgive meeeeeeeeee, I completely failed at the keeping in touch thing. D: And I can't believe it's nearly been a year since I made this post! I've thought a lot about you in the past year, but yeah ... major fail at translating that thought into action. D:

I checked your journal and it seems like you are probably pretty busy with school and work, etc., too. I hope all that is going well! And I hope our paths cross a little more around LJ now, too. Now that I've broken my addiction, I'm not really sure how to restart it (who'd've thunk, lol), but I'm giving it a shot. :)
