SpaceMom Hiatus in 5… 4… 3…

So… I’m embarking upon a long hiatus from all things EVE, and it is probably permanent. I’ve been drifting in this direction for some time, as many of you realize. Although I love our community and am proud of my part in things here, I have little interest or energy for EVE stuff these days.

Mostly, this is due to RL becoming much more demanding. Besides my existing portrait commissions (I’m an artist in RL), an opportunity to open a teaching studio in an ideal location recently presented itself. This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time — experience has demonstrated that teaching art classes and workshops can be both fun and lucrative! So, I’ve co-signed a lease with an artist friend for the space (she’ll run a gallery; I’ll run the teaching studio) and now we have to make good on our considerable investment. I’ve been working on a lot of stuff already but OMG there is So Much To Do to prep for a Feb 1 launch. It’s all very exciting though!

Anyway, almost 13 years in the game and nearly 5 since Signal Cartel launched is a good run! Mynxee will remain in the corp but I’m stepping down from the leadership team and away from EVE activity entirely, effectively as of now. And nope, you can’t have my stuff. There’s not that much of it anyway. I’m keeping my Pacifier, one Astero, and a billion ISK. The rest is getting donated to the corp for Thrice to do with as he sees fit.

I <3 you all and thank everyone for bringing their own magic to the mix that makes Signal Cartel an amazing community–especially Thrice Hapus for CEOing (it ain’t easy!) and Johnny Splunk for starting it all. I treasure their friendship and all other friendships I’ve made through EVE — all of which most definitely transcend the game.

So that’s all there is to say about that, then. Fly clever, spacekids!
