Just a general public service announcement since it's been a long time since I've posted anything fic-like here (as opposed to communities), and it's probably going to be a while longer before I get back to anything fic-like:
a) I aten't dead. :D
b) Anyone who posts here to whine about lack of fic updates will be baleeted with extreme prejudice.
c) Life-life is looking up a little...
The heart arrhythmia's largely under control, thank goodness
I actually have a serious lead on a potential housemate for this fall! (Kittyfuzz I love you to bits but I want to come home and talk to someone who can (a) speak English and (b) share the housework, because...)
I'm taking the plunge and seriously working on finishing off a masters in information science, since getting classes for free is one of the few benefits that hasn't been taken away or gutted in the past few months.
d) Work-life is not looking up so much...
I won't even get started on how and why we've lost 85% of the employees in my workgroup over the past year, including 2 more in the past 2 weeks
I've really had it with inheriting everyone else's jobs as they leave
Nobody without a master's has even gotten an interview for longer than I can remember
Time to get my master's while it's still paid for so I can actually seriously look and have a chance of getting hired elsewhere.
So given D as a motivator for the masters degree part of C, fic stuff can't be my free-time writing priority for the foreseeable future.
I'll be ficcing and posting what I can when & where I can, but for approximately the next 2-3 years, degree work and work-work are likely to eat most of my concentration...
