I've been quite okay! I finished my PhD in September last year and decided to leave Academia.
After a 3-month temp job as a journalist in October-December, I've started a new job as a market research consultant in January.
I quite enjoy it, but the workload is pretty crazy so it's a lot of long hours and stress from time to time.
I still hang out in my shop on Gaia sometimes, but I actually just announced a small hiatus last week
because combining real life with DeviantArt commissions AND Gaia orders has become a bit too much on my plate.
Thank you so much! <3 I keep trying to improve!
