I happened to notice that the holidays have ended. My son went home to Texas and the apartment feels emptier without him (a mixed emotion if ever there was one). I even took down the Christmas tree and stuffed all that winter magic back into storage boxes to hide til next year. I've been a little at a loss for what to do the last few weeks. Mostly the boring bits of getting myself settled legally in Cali. I loathe bureaucracy

I did start playing Inquisition and so far I like it. I haven't killed a dragon or met my Hawke, but I'll get there ^_^  I've been writing a lot for my book, making edits, and working on my fanfic from DA2. I also have Strange Companions part 2 coming along, hopefully to post before the month is out. I started doing yoga again (YAY!) and watching my carbs. It's a new year, after all, and I can't make do without some sort of resolution to break in the coming months.

Work is mad as always, and I feel lucky on the days I can manage a lunch break without coming back to a pile of squawking students. I love my students, I do, but oh my god . . . self-sufficiency! Read about it! Develop it! facepalm

I am reading some lovely books: Through Wolf's Eyes and The Codex Alera (makes the train ride home so much nicer). I'm always up for good book suggestions if you know any :D I haven't seen the last Hobbit movie yet, so I'm thinking I may have to turn in my nerd card. Please don't tell on me ;) Other than that, it's life as usual. I treasure the days Darn and I have together, and muck through the ones we don't. He is, as always, my best critic, fan, advocate, and friend. It's almost a year we've been married and I find new things to love and respect about him every day.

I'll leave you with a song I can't get out of my head :D

:hugs: Thank you for joining Authors-Club!   We are so glad to have you join our group and adding our work to our collection! 

On behalf of the group, here's just a little bit of information as to what we're about! :

-- We support the literature community of Deviant Art by creating a safe, creative atmosphere for artists to come together and make connections with one another.

-- Are you a little lost as to how to get involved in the writing side of DA? Take a look at this helpful guide, How to get started with the Lit Community.  It's got some wonderful advice and has helped many a deviant get their feet wet, so to speak, in the lit world!

-- We also opened up a chatroom!!  We're currently trying to set up a better schedule, but we'll host little chats here and there fairly soon!

-- Before you start submitting, please familiarize yourself with our Submission Rules! This is just to make sure everyone's on the same page as far as contributing work goes, and helps keep the group running smoothly!

Again, thank you so much for joining our club! If you need anything at all, do not be afraid to ask! Wither it be about our club, or even about the going on's in Deviant Art!  

I hope that you enjoy this group and if at any time you have questions, concerns, or ideas please contact me jackofalltrades0097 , or any of the other admin!  We're here to help!

DA keeps stealing people off of my Watch list, it seems.
Lets hope you'll stick, this time!

DA likes to do odd things at odd times for no apparent reason.  Perversity of the inanimate and all that :D  Thanks for the (re) add!

It's terrible - someone might be painting the next Mona Lisa out there and I'll never know!

And as if prompted by cosmic balance, DA sometimes displays the same deviant twice in my friends list. Go figure. Definitely a big perv of an inanimate thing, DA.

dA has never pulled that one on me, but sometimes it lists groups I don't remember watching.  That *might* be user error >.< Not that I admit to it but am willing to entertain the possibility of a late night click :D
