An update to show I am still alive

Just so you know, I'm still alive.  Wheeeee~

Lemme give you a short explanation of why this page has been so quiet in 2013:

-I started a new job as a Parent Aide.  It's my first salaried position ever and I love it!  I basically help parents improve their parenting skills so that they can get their children back from CPS custody. I also supervise the visits between children and parents.  It's a lot of work, but it's a labor of love, really.  My boss really likes my work so far and I am so relieved to be doing well on something other than academia (that was one of the things keeping me from leaving grad school sooner, to be honest.)

- I am still dating Nicole and Rax.  Both relationships are pretty fucking awesome and I am proud to have both of them as my partners.  Living as a partner to Rax has really helped me get used to Tucson and see it for the good things-believe me, it does grow on you!

-I've been making friends in Tucson and it is pretty nice!  I also have a social life, going to the swap meet, to my flagship hobby shop, getting to really know my way around town better.

-I have kept thinking about theory, though clearly not as much as I did before.  I will write something worthy of being put up, sometime.

-There's the possibility that there will be a child a couple of ties removed from me, and I am very excited about that and about that would mean for some of those I love.  I am not gonna lie, I am excited to be of help in any capacity that I can.  I love kids.  I think despite the difficulties I would have raising a child in the US (see my post about that a couple of months ago), I would still very much like to try it.

-I am in the final stages of negotiating getting a fursuit.  Yes, I will be "that furry".  Deal with it.

-I have become a lot more confident and comfortable without grad school reminding me of how little I matter outside of my space as a statistic of a rate of attrition.  Seriously, fuck that place.  I did meet with Susan Stryker for a beer (and some ass-grabbing) this week and it made me think that I do miss theory.  I will go back to writing about it; Susan did stress that she thinks I should not stop writing.

-I am in the process of getting my ass to Indianapolis for Independence Day Weekend.  I'll let y'all know how goes it.

Also, as a PSA: does anyone need Copic markers or other art supplies?  I get them for stupid cheap at the swap meet so lemme know if there's something you're looking for.

Oh, for grin! That is excellent.
