It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – was Gromnor dead? Was he really in the northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms, somewhere […]

I’m sure you’ve all noticed the lack of posts around here in the last month.

I’m here to announce that it’ll probably be that way for a little while. I have to figure some things out.

Big, important sorts of things.

Like how my schedule is going to work NOW THAT I HAVE A JOB.

( /kermit-flail YAAAAAAY!)

As many of you know, I’ve been looking for work for a little over a year. That all changed mid-last week, and I started this week at my new job. I’m working full-time at a used bookstore, and I like it (and the people I’m working with) quite a lot. Hooray Books!

However, unlike many bloggers, I don’t have the kind of job where I can blog during down-time at work (in fact, during down-time at work, I clean the bathroom mirror or straighten and dust shelves). That means it’s going to be harder for me to get a regular game schedule, and thus a regular blogging schedule, at least for now.* Hopefully after the first few weeks I’ll be a little more stable with what shifts I’ll be working. I do know that I’ll be working weekends for the foreseeable future, so I’ll have some weekday time off.

I’m still playing, though I’m not sure what my future will hold in terms of raiding (and whether I can consistently get the same nights free every week). It’s kind of a good thing that TRI is done for the expansion (at least for me). I’ve been leveling Annata bit by bit, and have gotten in some great RP with Tarquin and Tiforis. Not sure when I’ll be writing up the ficlets, but they’re there, I promise!

Obviously the new job and keeping up with the real life things I need to do (like cooking and house stuff) are going to take priority. It’s not ideal, and I miss writing, but blogging doesn’t pay the bills! Until things sort out, and I’m more used to how this schedule will work, posts will be random and probably intermittent.

And if you’re ever looking for me, you can find me restocking the romance and paranormal romance paperback sections of my store.**

Many <3’s


*And yes, I really would like to shank that Murphy’s Law person, since Arrens is finally working a normal schedule again only to have mine get turned upside down and sideways.

**As the new hire, I get the easy, mindless jobs that other people aren’t fond of doing. Since that particular section of our paperback department gets picked through and purchased on a regular basis AND sold back to us in staggering amounts, I’m kept quite busy… I just kinda wish I liked reading romance novels.

  1. Graaats! Moneys always good!

    Somehow, from the moment I met you, deep down inside, I just knew you weren’t into romance novels.

  2. Hooray for jobs! I somehow managed to snag a job early December last year, but it sucked, so I’ve been looking for a new one since… late December.

    I finally found one last week. And I start next week. And my last day at my crappy job (where I often have to get up at 3:30 in the morning to make it to work on time) is in a week. I’m so psyched, especially since not starting work until 10am means I can actually stay up for my guild’s 9-12 raiding schedule, and later if we go long. 🙂

    I hope your job evens out soon, and grats on it! 😀 Have fun with the books for me. ^_^

  3. Omigoodness, I’m so excited for you!


  4. /kermit-flail Yaaaaay back at ya!

  5. Congrats on the job, Anna! (I’m glad I watched the muppet show recently so I can picture the kermit-flail clearly). This is the one you were excited for the interview (or after the interview) on the twitters, right?

    (And grats to you too, Apple!)

  6. Awesome, congrats! (and much jealousy, have been in a similar unemployed position for a while myself) Curious, do you get to read during your downtime at work? I figure it’s a nono in officework and such but in a used bookstore I’ve always wondered whether it’s allowed or not.

  7. Ooh congrats!! /treeflail

    I always wanted to work in a bookstore! Jealous 🙂

  8. @Jaedia – I’m allowed to read on my breaks, but not when I’m on the floor. In fact, it’s specifically prohibited (I’m guessing to discourage loitering and loafing about!). We rarely have any substantial down time, even for just 5 minutes, since the store is almost always busy, so I couldn’t get much reading in anyway!

  9. That makes sense, I wish we had a second hand bookshop that could keep that busy! Had one in town a few years ago that was pretty well stocked but it was almost always empty and ended up closing down, a shame, I liked it in there.
