Dept. of Still Existing

Working, Eating, Watching Anime, Sleeping ....

I've been adulting the fuck out of my life the last couple of weeks, being responsible, doing reports., talking to people to whom I'm introduced as "an expert on mobilizing" which has the expected result of triggering imposter syndrome like whoah. And I've learned that yes indeed, I will be expected to take on organizing efforts in Indiana, so there's that. 

It's making me tired, wired, and ... well ... I'm kind of liking it. 

The only problem is that I can't get enough energy up at the end of a day to post here, or to write any fiction. And there's part of me that's screaming to write some fic. Gah!

Still - I'm here, I'm determined not to disappear., and I hope I can share some of my adventures in the Union Adult Zone. Stay tuned. But don't hold your breath. That might be fatal.

Well, it's always nice to see some signs of your continued existence :) Just be mindful of the work and life balance. And that weekends shouldn't be for working. Even if it can't be helped sometimes.

You mean with Post-Tribune/Crown Point Star, or are you guys trying to unionize The Times of Northwest Indiana, or Michigan City News-Dispatch and other Indiana Paxton Media Group papers?

Either way, good luck.

Well, in this job, there are now set hours, so weekends are fair game. But I don't mind. It hasn't happened a lot, but it has happened, and I expect to spend more weekend time on the clock in future.

I can't say at this point, because our efforts are in their infancy. I know you wouldn't go broadcasting the news, but I have to stay tight-lipped, at least for now. (I feel weird saying that., but bear with me.)

Actually, the Post-Tribune of Northwest Indiana is already a Guild unit; it's currently negotiating jointly with Guild units at Pioneer Press and the Lake County News Sun for new contracts.

No worries - especially since this isn't a locked post.

Edited to add: I'm guessing that you meant to type "no set hours," rather then "now set hours."

I just hope that your work/life balance doesn't tilt too far toward work. For your own sanity.

Oops. You're right. I meant to say "no set hours." I'm being careful about those hours as well.

I haven't found the balance yet, but I'm not going to bother myself too much about it. And hey - here I am, responding to someone on LJ - this is good!

*hugs back, hard*
