Not the kind of update some of you are hoping for i'm afraid...

Why do I need to write when we have brilliant people who create manips like these? ;-) A picture paints a thousand words...so i'm redundant.

Long story short, I accepted a new job, we're buying a new house, my husband is considering a new job and my life is in total upheaval. I'm out of the office more than i'm in the office which is why there haven't been updates as i'm running around supervising too many things while my boss is overseas. When she made me "managing" director, I thought it was just a trumped up title.

Turns out she wasn't kidding...

So yes, hello to you, i'm managing an international company by my freaking self it feels like at times. That's actually part of the reason why i'm resigning. I'm not a business type person. My dad is, my mum is, but i'm not. I try to thrive in whatever I set out to do, but i'm not really that happy here. I love that this job puts me in contact with children, but it's really not me.

So i'm going back to being a lawyer. A corporate lawyer. I've sold my soul to the devil it seems lmao! But hey, I can't knock it till i've tried it right? My boss in NZ (jokingly) called me a sellout cos I had to resign from my position in NZ too. A position i've been babysitting really because there is someone in the firm more than capable of taking my position but my boss and I go back a ways (went to university together thought he was a senior when I was a freshman) and he was kinda hanging on to me for some reason or other. I love that job to bits. I'm a real defender of the little people type lawyer but it's almost all i've ever done and I want to try something different.

So I am. God knows, i'll probably regret it two months into the job and whine at my husband that my soul is being sucked from me but hey, like I said, can't knock it till i've tried it. My contract is for four years.


Ok, so that's a little nuts but they are amply compensating me. I'm an adult with adult responsibilities now which include a freaking mortgage I never thought i'd need. So yeah, maybe my boss is right and I am a sellout lol.

Long freaking ramble short, i'm busy as hell.

I'm going to try my best to update at least once a week, but ladies (and gentlemen), please forget about the Nikki y'all had for 2012/2013. I'm working in an area of law I HAVE NO EXPERIENCE IN AT ALL and yet they are paying me like i'm the foremost fucking expert in it so I have to work my butt off to make sure I don't embarrass myself. Sadly, I can't actually remember the last time I probably needed to use my brains this much. I could multitask easily because I knew my previous jobs like the back of my hand that I don't need to give it my full attention.

Unfortunately, I have to with this.

The ramble got longer... I HAVE TO UNLEARN THIS!!!

Anyway, yeah, so i'll try and update once a week. I have no idea what i'll update at any given time, but do know that every update is written in whatever SLIVERS of time I have in the week. I'm probably going to be stealing time to write ;;

Rest assured that I plan on finishing EVERY SINGLE WIP I have so don't be sad. 52 weeks in a year means 52 potential chapters, right? I'll do my best, but the days of multiple updates a week are probably a thing of the past. I had a good run, and if you're still reading this sentence after all my long-ass rambling, you must love me more than I ever imagined possible.

All of you are amazing. Your patience especially is amazing.

Much love from me, especially for reading all the way to the bottom here omg.



All the best with your new job Nikki! Of course we'll wait...and keep re-reading your previous updates while we wait xD

Hey! No worries, we can wait. :) Reading your fics is a privilege, so if real life calls for you to be an adult, we'll be adults too. gotta have patience. :D

Anyway, I actually salute you that you were able to write that much when you were a managing director of an international company and baby-sitting your NZ job. ON TOP OF BEING A WIFE. Heck, I don't think I can do that if I were in your position. So kudos to you.

Good luck with everything! New year, new challenge, a better Nikki afterwards. :D

P.S. New house, new job, hmmmm... when will there be little Nikki's and/or little OH's running around to fill all that space? :p

I'ma be running to you like that, LOL.
But seriously, congratulations on your new job and new house! ^^
Hey, any update is ok as long we all know you're alive and ok, hehe. though I have to say that I'll miss your whining and /whimpering/jizzing/ tweets and rants about the boys... And I think your new job is very cool, all challenging and stuffs. IDK a thing about being a lawyer but I think it's really sth that you love to do since you accepted the job with 4 years contract xD
I hope you the best and goodluck on your new job.. ^-^
Stay healthy and safe always Nicki! ^_^

Fandom were on a field day earlier bcoz the girl in Junsu's 'Uncommitted' mv also included on the 'Something' mv as well, lol xD

At the thought of fanfics and four years... well, at least it's you haha I'm so willing to wait :D
So hey new job, possible new breed of fanfics from you. That's something I'm looking forward to. Good luck Nikki ^^


I just wanted to say Thank you for writing all these fics... I just stumbled upon your journal less than 3 months ago but have been reading almost all them.. well yes almost...... since you said to read Love in the Ice I should read Ice first ... so I did .. and then there are cross overs between Ice/Sleeping Beauty/Mirotic ... so that's like majority of your fics... AND I SOOOOOO love your Jaejoong.. In all of the fics...seriously....

So a very big thank you and I will always wait for your update no matter how long..
And good luck in your new job... :D
