Sister Wives 3: The Regeneration

Thank you!

I work as a freelance scriptwriter and film editor alongside my “normal” job. Hoping to break into the industry full time! How’s it going for you?

'how's it going' really needs its own comment and I dunno if I have the energy this precise moment BUT I am also a writer! Prose mostly, but I'm doing a screenwriting class at community college at the moment, trying to figure out if I want to do a full time course in it or just stick with my current work and take classes. Would you mind if I maybe pick your brain some time?

Also it is so refreshing to see where everyone is at in their lives. I feel like I'm at a school reunion but actually in a nice way.

Feel free to pick my brain any time you want, any advice I can offer I’d be happy to give out! More than happy to look over your potential course details or talk over where you might want to go in the future. I found that very helpful when I started out. 

 

(I also feel like I’m at a school reunion. It’s great.)

Hi! So happy to have a kind of new member here😊 just bear over with us as we have our reunion-joy, and feel free to join in on any conversations and threads! 
You can call me Sonia, what do you go by? And do you have any experience with llamas?

Thank you! I’m pretty quiet and shy naturally, but everyone here seems super kind and cool :) and llamas? I don’t have much experience with them first hand but have many years experience loving them from a distance 😜

This reminds my that I need to read your fairytale!! I started, then a lot off stuff happened and I never got any further. Could you maybe repost the link?😊

I can confirm that everyone here is super kind and cool! At least the old ones. We’ve stood by each other through good and bad, and been both death serious and complete goof balls together🤪 I would recommend the asylum thread if you ever feel goofy. Actually I recommend the asylum just cause I want more people over there to revive it for real😛

loving llamas from a distance is something we have in common! I have met some real ones, like even pet some, but mostly I just watch them and admire how they are kinda weird, but still beautiful.

Awww sounds like you all have been through a lot and built some really lasting and beautiful friendships. ☺️ That’s amazing. I’ll definitely check out the asylum thread! I’m a big fan of goofiness haha.

Oooh I’m jealous! I pet some alpacas once, which was fun but I’d love to meet some llamas 🦙 That’s a good way to describe them, weird but beautiful. They have a sort of awkward grace 😂

A wild Nevvie appears after years and years...

Welcome back Gabby, I remember you! The gang really is getting back together, huh?

On a side note, I feel we should make another one of those “Post a pic of yourself” threads as we’re not all teenagers anymore 🤔

I had this whole cool comment about My Life Now and I effing clicked off the page GOD. I also have shitty hands (probably from spending 8 hours a day talking to you lot in 2010) so I need to go and rest them so I will write it again tomorrow.  But here is the link to the prologue! https://francescaswords.wordpress.com/2019/03/13/prologue-the-princess-and-the-dragon-and-other-stories-about-unlikely-heroes-by-francesca-burke/

Hey Ash! Are you still going by that? Let me know haha I remember you too of course! 

 

It feels so surreal to be back here, somewhere that was so integral to my life 8 years ago! And that the band is back!

I’m still going by Ash. It’s actually my legal name now (as of 2018, I’m good at procrastinating...). Didn’t seem a big deal because I was already using the name for years!

Feels surreal for me to be back too. I’d grown out of MCR since 2013, I’m probably going to be listening to the music in a totally different way.

good to hear! Haha, it’s kinda difficult to not be vague after 3 years, like it’s either that or writing a biography😛

I’m good too! Especially right now, lying on the couch after being outside in the snow😁

Was this a wedding? I need context

It was a wedding! I was pretty much the only sober person by the end of the night, but it didn’t stop me having a boogie. Mick, the guy in the wheelchair, said I made his night. Bless him. 

The song we we were dancing to was Don’t Stop Me Now...

I am so glad to hear you had an amazing time at the wedding. The photo truly says it all! Nothing is going to stop you now Ash. I am proud that you feel so comfortable in your own skin and recovery to still share special moments in an environment with alcohol.

Thank you, Rachel :wub: (don’t you just miss the wubs?)

I’m so blessed that I have friends that knew my struggles and look out for me in tempting environments. I used to completely avoid situations with alcohol but as the years rolled by I realised it was stopping me being sociable so now I just prepare myself in any way I can. 

The fact Queen was playing in this wedding party made it a lot easier ;)

Wow, Osaka sounds awesome! And I’m happy for you for quitting your job. Sounds enough with one job with everything you got going on, and that should be the one you actually enjoy!

Hi!! Please stay😊😊

Good to se you back!!! And so glad to hear you’re happier😃

I’ve been good, grown up and got a lot off grown up responsibilities, but still alone (but for my horse). 

Great to see you back, and it’s so cool to read everything you have accomplished since then! Are you working as a doctor?

I'm currently working on research, but planning to get back to the clinic next year.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAH YOU'RE BACK! Hi I've missed you 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤 all the best people are coming back this is the best

Okay so my favorite had to be Osaka. It's Japan's second largest city (after Tokyo of course) and imo it's the perfect size. I love cities, I love entering a new one and feeling out the vibe. When a city is enormous, though, the vibe can be lost and you have to break it down to neighborhoods to feel their vibes. Osaka is not too big but it is complicated and fun! I loved just walking the streets, but also it's got some neat districts and fun things to do. I'd live there if I could 🤩 I am absolutely determined to go back someday and hopefully spend even more time there next time! 

(lmao if anyone wants to see pictures I used my insta for that, @kateranoff)

Guess. What I just did. I need somewhere to be excited about this. I just wrote my letter of resignation! I've had the kind of job that people quit as birthday gifts to themselves (true story) for over a year now. They've been pushing me to enter management because I'm good at shit and don't have a shitty attitude. They get paid a ton but you literally could not pay me enough to manage this place it's a shit hole. 

Also I have a second job already, and it's a fucking dream job that I've been trying to get since I started since I entered the workforce. I'm a librarian! So I have this dream job, I'm full time in school, and then I had this second job that's been killing me....whenever I talk to my friends about all the shit I do their eyes get wide and they try to calmly explain that I don't need to do all this to myself. And they're right! It's taken me three months but I'm finally quitting. I am SO STOKED

I sooo want to go to Japan *.* (tempted to fly to see MyChem at download ...but it's too expensive :( )

Happy Danger Days anniversary!!!! Nine years ago, this beautiful album was released and soon it will be resurrected along with our formerly defunct MCR. This album was pivotal in different ways for all of us. I am thrilled to see the boys live again, especially to have the opportunity to celebrate in California 2019 together as Lulfur. This album means the world to me and can be credited with introducing me to my bestie Lia (the wonderful other half of Lulfur). Dangers Days, here we go again my darlings!

I cannot believe it's been 9 whole years! Okay I can but I am consistently surprised by the linear nature of time. It's a little odd referring to MCR in the present tense on an album anniversary.

I can see why it might feel a little odd. Honestly, I am refreshed by the fact this is not a dream and we can now use present language involving MCR!
