been so busy at work

2017 has been a busy year so far already
  • Working with @spacey-casey on a poetry collection of reactions in poetry and prose to the US election featuring a diverse cast of writing voices. (More details to come as they happen.)
  • Working with my Universal Pre-K class, so lots of planning and even more paperwork. Fortunately, this is a digital age, so I can do most of it on the computer.
  • Swimming, so much swimming. So far I’ve complete over 15 and a half miles in the water, with the goal of 100 miles by the end of the year. (about 3 miles ahead so far.)
  • Also, I somehow ended up taking over the gender variants support group in my city. That isn’t a bad situation at all. I’m glad to have become a trans mom to so many. It is a wonderful feeling.

All of this is just to say that I am still here, just not as active as usual for a bit.

I’m still alive!! Been so busy with life and work! But I’m finally free, for now TTwTT  The scene was inspired by @suzubelle-chan question when she asked figmentforms about Ganondorf’s age.

I couldn’t help myself XD

Zerrick is by @eternalkeeper and he is shipped with Ralnor, who is single in this AU. ;3 Been inspired to draw them by his fanfic “A Tale of Spiders, Vipers and Crows” The Ralnor moments in there are spectacular ;3

Rinku belongs to the magnificent and talented @figmentforms

A very close friend of mine works for a company that sold themselves to a larger company last year. They instituted a two year transition plan during which time, the new company hired the old owners to run the company throughout the transition period in order to maintain some “semblance of normalcy”. The new company that bought them out started out slowly by sending their top executives to meetings and they have been very gradually starting to institute change. Within this next year my friend will find out the status of her future employment (and she is optimistic based upon what she has slowly learned of the new firm). Meanwhile, the previous owners will step down at the end of the set timeframe and things could change drastically at that time. The kicker is that IF that happens, the new company will have fully integrated themselves and learned all the ins and outs of the business by then. Basically, while my friend (and her colleagues) feel like their careers are safe (and I truly hope that they are for her sake), the new company has set themselves up for success because when the time comes to fully move in, and takeover they will be 100% ready to go.
I have no idea if this is relevant to what might be happening with Syco, but I think it’s worth noting. Retaining original owners or executives is a fairly common practice during a transition/buyout for big business. Of course, sometimes takeovers are hostile and drastic change implemented instantly, and these are just two examples of many things that can happen in the world of business. Just something to consider.

Vacation, just almost 1 day away…I can’t wait to share it with you 🤗 I’m sorry for my lack of creating new things–I have been literally so busy with work to do before I leave that it has been impossible. But I hope to record an outfits of the week Puerto Rico edition for you all & take tons of photos once I am relaxed and in the sun and done with school work ✨
