  1. oh! the fringe came from crazycrow.com :)
  2. Dear Reds, I'm getting married in September, I'm taking a cert course to become a teacher (so changing careers by this summer), and life has generally been crazy busy! So yea, stuff and things. Back to lurking the lurking lurk of lurkers. Yele
  3. HI, I'm Yele. I've spent more time in the basement than is probably proper, and I don't get out much. :P I've got two degrees (Humanities and History), I play with data at work, and I do SCA things in my spare time. I have a husband and a dachshund mix, and I live close enough to NASA to share a fence with them. I got into WOT in the late '90s, and found the online groups (and then the RL communities at cons) in the early '00s. I've been staff at D*Con and for Jordan Con, and at one time was doing admin-y work for TV.net. I also have sporks at my desk that Moon Sedai gave me when we met up in 2013! But then she left me for Arizona, and I only sort-of forgive her ;) (updated in 2018 - I still have at least one these sporks!) Being Red reminds me of the best parts of me, the parts I want to encourage to flourish and grow. I know that I can show up after a few years, and once I get know know the new folks, I can go back to sporking on the sidelines and getting eaten alive by RL.
  4. Dear Reds, Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here... no, wait. scratch that. It's been a while. A while-while. There have been ups and downs and successes and failures. But, for now, I've managed to finish both bachelor degrees I set out to complete a few years back. I'm engaged, I have a job, I can't complain too loudly. I had a random autoimmune thing take me out of roller derby, which threw me for a tailspin. I've been working on depression, and I'm just starting to deal with PTSD stuffs. But I'm back here for a bit to haunt the halls and see what mischief can be managed tofor the new Highest. <3 Yele
  5. Years! Years of my life stolen! Having to slave away under this tyrant. From Dragon*Con to JordanCon - the demands never cease! I practically begged to be sent to the Farm instead! But no - she prefers to surround herself with the suffering of others. :(
  6. Haha, Thanks all! Tyler - I'm usually off plotting, planning, meddling or into something I shouldn't be - and those things often distract me for...extended periods. But I'm super excited to have earned the shawl!
  7. I swear to respect all members of the WT Community, despite any differences we might have in background or opinion. As Aes Sedai are sisters, this Org is my online family and I will treat them as such. I swear to always remain a member of this Community at heart, even if life might take me away from it for a time, and always strive to return to it. Once an Aes Sedai, always an Aes Sedai. I swear to be a true and faithful member of the Red Ajah and to uphold the dignity and ideals of my Ajah and the White Tower. I am a true member of the Red Ajah. I stand before you all humbled and honored to finally be taking these oaths. Light knows I've been away more than I've been around - but this org, this community, has stayed in my mind and close to my heart. I'm excited and honored to finally make it to the Shawl. Tho, I do think I should have held out another month or so to get the full 6 years from novice whites to red fringe. ;)

  9. 410. When, while getting a manicure the person states "oh, snake ring?", your instant response is "oh, it's my Aes Sed...well, yes. It's a snake ring" and quickly find something else to focus on...
  10. Dear Reds. I've got a saying right now - everything will calm down once I'm 30 (on the 23rd). hah! TarValon.Net's anni went well, and I'm gearing up for JordanCon the best I can. I've got games this weekend (in San Antonio) and next weekend, and I'm running on fumes. So tired! Things at work have been wonky as well, in part because I just don't want to be here anymore. But! At least I have a job. *sigh* I'm gonna be pretty afk until after next weekend. also! editing to add - I just noticed I'm dangerously close to actually completing all the req's for raising. Scary thought. July will be 5 years on the site. I'm pretty sure I can draw it out. (while I remember running a WT tour with Kathleen ages ago - I could do for another go at that)
