Hi everyone~ I started a new job this January and unfortunately can’t juggle it with my minion duties, so this is my minion graduation post of sorts. That explains why you don’t see me around much lately. I’m still adjusting to my new work (Misaeng feels!), but hopefully I can hang out in the comments and fanwalls like a regular beanie again. :’)

I know this message is too short compared to how huge a Thing Dramabeans is in my life. But you know from my months-late Light in Your Eyes recap that I’m not good at writing while being pummeled by feelings. >__< So just know that I still heart Dramabeans and can’t wait to get settled in my new job so I’ll have free time to wreak (good-natured) havoc in the comments again.

For now, I leave you with a gif from my first and favorite K-drama which perfectly encapsulates how I feel about having to grow up and part with things, especially those that we treasure. Also as a reminder that if you wiggle-butt through life, it wouldn’t seem so sad after all. (Okay, I totally invented that last lesson, but hey, if it works…)

    Oh Mary, you did a good job! We’ll miss you as a minion in DB but well let’s say I’m happier that you are back as a beanie as we get to see more of your funny, zippy comments that you did as a beanie earlier. Good luck with your new job 😃

    Congratulations on your new job. Like a drama heroine I hope the new job entails beautiful coats, lots of coffee breaks, handsome chaebols, and the chance to employ the perfect hair flip on occasion.

    Mary! Congratulations on starting a new job! I’m sure you’ll get to use many of your Dramabeans-based skills in your new work environment, no matter what your new responsabilities entail! Thank you for performing your minion duties so consciensously (I’ve been re-reading with such pleasures weecaps of Misty last week, you and Odilettante were perfect narrators!) and I’m looking forward to reading your “regular beanie” comments (although no beanie is actually regular – all beanies are unique and wonderful).
    Best of luck and see you soon!

    You are one of my absolute favorite minions and hope to see you around this neck of the woods often!

    Thank you for all your hard work, Mary! I hope DB is able to find as awesome a person to continue your position! I will be stalking your fan wall for updates on your new job and what you may be watching! I was glad to finally see your dear Apple butt in a drama this past year! All the best!

    Congratulations on the new job Mary! I’m sad that you won’t be around as much, but glad that you will still be here.
    I’ve always appreciated your hard work with the bots and everything else you’ve done.

    I’m not good with change. I really really don’t like it.

    I mean, I’m hope your new job is great and all, but we will miss you.

    Good luck as you leap into this job.

    (I’m sure your landing will be much smoother)

    And I suppose I can be an adult and put on my pirate hat and salute you as you go on this new venture.

    Don’t be a stranger. Really.

    Yay! and boo. Thanks for all your hard work here. I’m sure you did a million more things behind the scenes at DB than we could ever guess. Hope the new job turns out to be fantastic. Maybe this will give you time to come back and write a couple things every once in a while, we love your writing!

    Oh I’m so sad to be kind of late to this!!!!
    mARY- You have done SO MUCH work for dB behind the scenes, and I, possibly more than average beaniedom, know that full well.
    I don’t even WANT to know how many times my other posts almost broke dramabeans, along with that one post that DID break dramabeans. So thank you for all your wonderful hard work (and for putting up with me), and I hope your new job goes well!!!!
    All the best and God bless and you better come and wreck havoc in the comments with us from time to time, you better.

    I canโ€™t believe it @mary. I feel like we beanies have lost our own Jo Min-ja.
    (For the unaware that is a HEALER reference.) Good luck on your new job
    and keep blessing us with your wicked sense of humor.
