Persephone's Updates

Fall 2016

I'm still working out the exact schedule, but these are at least the times I am away that are prescheduled.

Monday, Wednesday, Friday

2pm-4:15pm (5 on Fridays)

Tuesday, Thursday
4-5pm (Tuesdays)

I am working on campus both at our writing center and as an intern. The intern hours vary greatly, but my writing center job will have a schedule that I will post. Once I get into the swing of things, my schedule will be easier to adjust. I'm right now relying on my campus wifi for all things online.

June 3: Name change from Kore to Persephone. I'm still around. :)

Also started back at work this past week, but I'm still constantly online and checking inbox, so please be patient if I do not respond immediately.

My home wifi is down. It will be between 1-2 days before it is fixed hopefully since it is our dish. I am currently using my phone with my 3G, so I am very limited. Please contact another available moderator for the next few days while I get my wifi fixed.

July 21, 2015: My wifi is now fixed, and so I m back!

August 12-August 15, 2015

From the afternoon today until Saturday evening, I will be sparse. I am leaving for Washington, DC in the morning (as it is currently midnight here), and well be spending about 3 days there with me coming home on Saturday. During this time, I may or may not have internet as my hotel charges $13/day for wifi, and I am planning to be going all over the city to explore. I would highly recommend PMing other moderators during this time as I will likely not be at my laptop most of the time to solve anything beyond simple requests such as delete/lock/bring back shops on my mobile.

August 15th:

Back from vacation! I'm back to the usual eternal lurking in between work and sleep, so feel free to contact me. I'm online periodically, so I'm sure to catch it here or if I check my email for PM alerts.

Some of you may be aware that I have been sick the past couple weeks. I am still checking PMs, but working a bit slower due to that. I have had back-to-back infections with a total of 22 days of antibiotics straight I must take (12 completed so far). Please be patient with all contact. Authentic Artist review is still going on, and we do have a number being examined at the moment. Hopefully, I will be back to full-force shortly!

After a few days of taking it easier, I'm back to being on for hours on end at various times throughout the day.

October 1, 2015:
I'm starting fall break, and will be traveling tomorrow to a friend's home to spend the break with him. Due to not knowing how his internet is as well as having bad weather coming that could affect power, I will be on limited availability until I return sometime on Tuesday. I will be checking my email and keeping track of PMs I receive, but may be a bit slow depending on whether or not internet/power works.

I recently just joined the Admins, and so I can now handle a lot more on the forum. I am still easing into the role and will eventually be able to do more things, but I can now handle things such as account settings. I'm happy for this promotion and to be able to help even more!

Fall semester is winding to a close, and with that I am being overwhelmed by papers, exams, and family. To help ease some of this stress, I am taking a brief hiatus so that I can focus on knocking out my finals. During this time (November 25-December 12), I will be away from GASR and unavailable to answer any messages that I receive during this time period. I would highly recommend messaging other moderators during this time in order for situations to be handled in a timely manner.

I live in a rural area, and snow can hit us pretty hard. Currently, my area is under a winter storm watch until January 24th, and they are estimating we will get between 12 and 24 inches. The last time we had a storm similar to this one, my power was out for a week. I will likely be offline until my power returns or I find a way to make it to a city. Because of this, I will be on limited availability starting on January 22. I will log in to answer messages and do tasks while I have time and power; however, be aware that I may be slow to respond.

Hey, guys! So, school started back up recently. I'm taking a fairly heavy course load, and I'm finding that my art classes are taking up a large portion of my time. Topped with some wifi issues at home still being looked in to, I've mainly been getting on while I am at my college. I am still around, but I am just slow to respond since I am mainly getting online between classes while I am at school. I am staying after a bit later in order to update things.

This mainly affects my weekends right now since those are the times I am not on campus at any time (unless I drive an hour to use the wifi). I may log in on weekends, but it won't be for long periods of time, so please be aware that any messages after around 4 or 5 on Friday may not be answered until Monday.

So, it's been a bit since my last update, and I've had a ton happen in that short time.

My main reason is that my home wifi is absolutely horrendous. I have been relying on my campus wifi in order to complete most of my school assignments and get research done because anything heavy (especially images) tends to completely stall my wifi connection. I've been doing as much as I can through my mobile phone; however, I don't have a lot of 3g between my family's phones, so I cannot do this often. I'm hoping that I will find a way to get more stable wifi, but I'm in limbo until then.

Other Stuff Happening that is not as important (unless you are curious) and a little bit ranty:

I've tried my hardest to be active past and present, and will continue to get online every opportunity that I can; however, please understand that I may be slow until I get some issues worked out between lack of wifi and real life. Those who know me well know that it really bugs me to not be providing constant, 24/7 support like I have done in the past, but I need to slow down for a while in order to get some things stabilized. Once I figure out at least the wifi issue, I will be able to give a better schedule, and I should be more active/faster, but until then, I'm at the mercy of my offline schedule.
