Something scary and cool.

Several months ago I wrote a great deal of blog posts about the high protocol side of our D/s, and had them all nearly ready to publish. Then I got overwhelmed with other things, and didn’t quite get them scheduled. Since then so many things have changed I can’t even describe how much my life is different. I have literally written this post many, many times, and deleted it nearly just as many, wanting to tell you what is going on, but not able to bring myself to say the words.

Have you heard the phrase, if you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all? Well, I don’t have anything nice to say.

So I’ll not going to tell you all the lonely crap I’ve been dealing with over the last few months, and move into the present.

I’ve been accepted into a fairly prestigious MFA (Master of Fine Arts) program, and am going to move into a full-time professional art career. I’ve wanted to fully leave teaching for a while, and have been slowly transitioning out over the last couple years. This makes it final.

I’m terrified. Naturally.

There’s still several unknowns, and several risk over money, living expenses, housing and family lifestyle. It’s all just stress, of course. But I am hoping it will all work itself out soon. Cross your fingers for me! Or send good thoughts, meditate, pray. Do whatever you do naturally. I would appreciate and revel in your good energy. I’m running a bit low just now.

Getting accepted into the MFA program is something to brag on in itself. Only 30-35% of applicants get accepted. I was one of them. So that’s cool. They only accept 10 to 15 students a year, and it’s a nationally top-5-ranked school. Now I have imposters syndrome settling in, and don’t feel worthy anymore. But that’s the way of all artists, as far as I can tell. Maybe a factor of our western culture. I don’t know.

Regardless, I am excited for this new change in life. Terrified, yes. But excited.

As for all those blog posts, I think I’m still going to publish them. Some of them aren’t all that relevant anymore, as we decided our 24/7 D/s was getting too intense and too high protocol on a daily basis. Punishment, for example, was one of the things that went by the wayside. So did daily maintenance spankings. Unfortunately, my behind is going incredibly unspanked. But, it is what it is.

For now, I’m trying to stay firmly in the positive, and happy for my MFA degree to be. 😁

  1. Congratulations on getting into MFA program. A successful D/s dynamic dose not need to be high protocol. Be sure to keep comunication open and honest, maintain respect for his opinions and follow his lead as much possible. Life’s demands change and a good Dynamic flexes with them.

  2. Congratulations on your courage to make a major change. The acceptance is great but you have made the decisions to take that risk. Best of luck. As to the protocols—all D/s relationships move like a living organism. Sometimes more or less of all sorts of different protocols. As long as you both are happy and enjoying things—it’s all good!

    1. That is totally true. I also have to keep reminding myself it’s only a couple years, then I’ll be back to work with an income and all that. So it’s only a temporary change.
      Our Ds really just needed to slow down. It was a good choice for us to step back a bit.

  3. Congratulations, minnie! You are so WORTHY! Never forget that. Can’t wait to hear about your new adventures in school and this major life change. As for D/s…from what I have learned, it comes and goes. You two will be back at it someday and you’ll be regretting that wish for more spankings when you have to do all your art work standing up! Sending you lots of positive vibes!!! <3

    1. Lol. I have no doubt! It’s only a matter of time.
      Thank you so much for the positive words! I have to remind myself all. the. time.!

  4. Congrats on your acceptance Minnie. I look forward to the blog posts relating to school stuff.

    You guys will get back to spanking again. It waxes and wanes. Like Nora said, positive vibes, my friend.

    1. Thanks! I really need the positive vibes towards not freaking out in all this stress and sacrifice of the transition, more then the Ds, but maybe I wasn’t clear. I don’t worry about our Ds. It’s always changing. 🤣
      Thanks so much for the positive vibes! We are having the hardest time finding housing on one income. This market is killing us!

      1. Aww, Minnie. Keep looking. This is a buyers market. You will find what you are looking for. More positive vibes.

  5. Yay, so glad to see you back and congratulations on your acceptance! A big hug to you. I wish you every success with your course and can’t wait to see and read more 🙂
