Still alive....

Oh man, why do I always seem to think that I'll get stuff done on my vacations?! I've been busy as all heck for the past three weeks, but have I gotten any writing done? Nope. Any fandom projects? Hell no.

Seriously, I need to go back to Vancouver and get back to work, just so that I can have time for my hobbies again.

In fairness, I did make a laundry closet and put together shelves for my mum, assemble a sauna (for my mum), go to a 4 day music festival, and spent quality time with friends and family (including the lovely ratherastory!)... but yeah, I've only written a page, spent a few hours researching for the new novel idea , and watched 4 episodes of Teen Wolf (and 2 of those were just on the train back from Montreal today.)

The good news for you guys is that I fly back to Vancouver on Thursday - so after that I should be back to my regularly scheduled fandom-related hobbies.

The bad news for me is that I start working again on Friday.... back to the job I hate, working for the contracting company that is frustrating beyond belief... and who is going to be pissed at me when they realize that there's no way I can meet my call-up days for my current contract. Of course, the good news there is that I've decided to quit at the end of September, even though I don't have anything else lined up. I'm just sick of it. So, after that I should have PLENTY of time for fandom related things as I slowly sink into unemployed despair when I'm inevitably unable to find another job because I have no skills in any other field. :P

Also, the VERY good news is VanCon is soon!! I will once again be trying to keep you all informed with overly lengthy reports. :)

Wow! Quitting your job cold turkey like that takes a lot of guts. I hope you find something new quickly. Have you decided to stay in Vancouver, or are you leaning towards moving home? Either way, good luck in your future endeavors. Looking forward to seeing you at VanCon.

Yeah, I'm a little bit terrified about the decision - but I really really need a change. I haven't quite decided if I should stay in Vancouver or move back home - that'll probably be the topic of a long flocked post soon though. :P

Thanks for the good wishes! I appreciate them. I'm looking forward to seeing you at VanCon too. :)

Scary decision, but sometimes great things come of such leaps. I wish you all the best, and will be rooting for you. <3

Thanks! Yeah... it's scary, but so is the idea of staying in the job that I hate under the contracting company that I hate.
