Some of you may already know, but I think you all deserve to have an idea about what's going on with me.

So I got a new job, since my old one had become intolerable. I told them that I would be gone before the end of the summer and they didn't believe me. I was actually hired by two different newspapers, both good ones, and it was a difficult choice to pick only one. But the one I am joining is so prestigious, so fantastic, so progressive, I cannot imagine not being happy there. The people so far have just been absolutely wonderful (they even offered to help me find an apartment). It will be the first real living wage salary I'll have earned in my entire life and I'm just still in a state of shock about the whole thing. I feel I've been drifting through a dream over the last week.

This new job does mean that I have to move, and as I write this, I am surrounded by boxes and objects that look like a gentle tornado lifted them and set them about the room again in a disarray. I'm not complaining; this is probably the best thing that can happen to me right now.

For DorianHarper, VFreie, JessabellaWood, I have not forgotten about the commissions; I just have not been able to focus on them with everything going on over the last month. I will make finishing them my top priority.

Thank you to all of those who have wished me good luck and who have offered me good advice as I've been going through all the crap I've had to deal with.

Here's to better things!

My name is Jacinta. I possess a dual degree in English and in Art Studio. Currently I'm working a dead-end job at a coffeehouse unemployed and selling my jewelry online and at arts and crafts shows working as an editor/paginator at a newspaper. Jobs I've held in the past include being a publisher of a newspaper, an illustrator, a ghostwriter, an archaeologist, and an editor at a publishing house. I've worked on the staff of several magazines; have had both drawings and writings published in journals, litmags, and web sites; and have launched my own small jewelry-making business. I'd like to become a teacher someday so I can impart the things that I love to young people in new and fun ways.

If you know me on here, you know that I love to read. I love nature and am a sucker for nature photography (particularly sweeping landscapes and macro shots of plants). The dA Muro French Revolution is my new love affair. The addition of dA groups is a great feature because it offers many more opportunities to connect with others and their work; my favorites folders are now swollen with incredible things! XD Some may frown upon this, but I'm a clepto for things I like. One thing I do not appreciate is when people thank me for favorites; I'd prefer they pay it forward by looking at someone else's page.

What else is there to say? I cross-dress in historical costumes all the time and am happiest inside a museum. Things I collect include rocks, coins, and beads. I'm also a clepto for art supplies and antiques. Throwing things away is very hard for me because I believe in a million uses, the sentimental capacity for objects to conjure memories, and in recycling. Artichokes and popcorn are among my favorite foods.

So that's me in a nutshell. Hope you enjoy your visit!
