Authorly Update: Oops, I Did It Again?

Greetings, my lovely flist! I hope you've all been well. For anyone who's interested in what I've been up to since my last disappearance off the Internet, read on.

I graduated this afternoon! Again! I think I probably need to stop doing that, now. I mean, It's getting kinda repetitive. This time it was my second Master's degree. I'm a happy geek at the moment, but also very glad to have survived the last four months of school, to have finished the giant graduate project/paper of doom, and to be leaving academia behind me for the foreseeable future. :-)

Over the next two months I'll be packing up my life, moving it almost 1,000 miles away from the only place I've ever lived, setting up a home of my own (and on my own) for the first time, and starting work as a full-time engineer for the US Department of Defense. It's all a very exciting adventure, and it's also partly sad since I'm moving away from my family and friends. Mostly I just want the whole "moving" thing to be over and done with already, and simultaneously I kinda don't want to go at all. But I'm given to understand that it's normal to feel that way.

I probably won't get back to being very active in fandom until things have settled down, but I'm already looking forward to getting back to work on my various fics-in-progress. I've been enjoying S6 so far but haven't really had the urge to write Eleven. There's still so much Nine and Ten I want to write!

Onward and upward and hopefully more fandom-ward in the not-so-distant future!

Congratulations on your graduation! That's awesome!

I'm looking forward to you joining us again. :) I've missed seeing you around the fandom!

Congratulations! And don't worry, write all the9 and 10 fics your little heart desires. 11 is growing on me but has yet to inspire the passion that 9 and 10 did.

Gratz on graduation! Like you, I tend to come and go from LJ and from fandom, but I always look you up to see what you've done while I was away. Glad to hear that life is tremendously good as you start out on your new career (huzzah!) and hope you do, indeed, make it back to tales of 9 and 10. *hugs* :)

Here is a late congratulation. It had been forever since I talked to you online. (If you can't place me, here is a hint: *poke poke* you ever going to finish "Rewound"?)

This is adaliazandra's fic journal, which she hadn't planned to use very often. That plan has since been defenestrated in favor of posting fic update notices and rambles about DW and TW.

If you note the spiffy paid-account layout, that's because nightrider101 is simply the most wonderful person ever! :-)

If I seem to have disappeared off the face of the Internet, it's because I probably did. I don't actually *like* suddenly ignoring my LJ friends and leaving my stories hanging, though, so odds are I'll be back eventually.
