Well, Y'all ...

The (Cyber) Bag of Weasels

bread and puppet

"About as much fun as a bag of weasels"...when I first saw this Irish adage, it made me think of the life of a writer: sometimes perilous, sometimes painful, certainly interesting. My paper journal has always been called "The Bag of Weasels." This is the Bag of Weasels' online home.

Well, Y'all ...

Those who read the SWG newsletter or follow me on Tumblr know that I have officially started my hiatus for my thesis. I won't be on social media and will even *gasp!* be closing out my email while I'm working so that I can avoid the bad habit of popping in every five minutes to see if there is anything new.

I am definitely reachable on email, so if you want to tell me something, please do email me. :)

My most excellent comods will be taking over my responsibilities for the next few months on my various fandom projects. Russa put together the SWG newsletter this month. It was the first time in ten years that I didn't do it! I feel like a new parent leaving a child with a babysitter for the first time with all my little finicky instructions and comments. (I hope I wasn't too annoying!) Even though I know they will do a wonderful job, it's just strange that something that has been a daily part of my life will for over a decade now will get on without me for a few months! I'll still be getting auto-forwards but trying not to answer them! Let's see how I do!

So ... I'll see everyone in March then! <3

  • Best of luck! I will miss seeing you around. Wonder what I would get done if I even took a single week off of social media and gratuitous Google searches?
  • Good luck!
  • Best of luck!
  • Good wishes for mostly (but not altogether!) distraction-free MA-ing!
  • Good luck!! Hope it all goes well!! <3
  • Good Luck! :)
  • Godspeed! You will do an awesome job on your thesis, Dawn, and your co-mods will do an awesome job on the archive. :)
  • Have fun and best wishes! I used to think getting my Masters was hard. Then I realized... it was hard, lol!

  • Exciting times! I do hope you'll manage to handle the social media cold turkey well - from experience, I know that there are times when I absolutely don't miss a thing, and there are times when I really really urgently need to check on LJ! And of course I hope you'll enjoy writing your thesis and that it'll have as little boring (for you) parts as possible. (I hated doing the "previous research on this topic" part of mine. I should have done it first, while the previous research was still new to me, instead of last, when I had read it all a hundred times...)
    And that your tutor/teacher/professor/whoever gets to mark your thesis appreciates your hard work.

    In short, all the best! You'll be missed, but as long as we know why you're disappearing and more importantly, that you'll be back, we'll survive. It'll be strange, though. See you in March! *hugs*
  • Best wishes! With all that focus I know you'll get that thesis done in no time. Maybe getting a chance to check out what's happening is the reward for getting work done.

    Heh. I'm incorrigible.

    But seriously, best of luck with The Big Push. It will be worth it.

  • Good luck! I'll miss seeing you around and look forward to when you're able to participate again.
