semi coherent post in pseudo bullet form, woo.
+ I have no idea what day it is. It’s…December.
+ I’m going to be practically approved for overtime because two people in my department got fired and we have two new people on top of New Coworker S, who is still trying to grasp how to do most things.
+ I have no idea what my schedule is going to look like. Ajax had Jamie call me and ask if he could change my schedule due to issues (people being fired)
+ Something is broken in the craft room and I am too brain dead, tired, and headachey to deal with it right now.
+ Jamie said he figured out what’s wrong with the washer…I have my doubts. (it runs, it just has water coming back into the basin)
+ I have moments where I wish I had my grandmother’s old washer (it was this old 40s/50s washer that still worked and was pretty awesome)
+ We’ve been at work so much this week that the house is a disaster and there are no clean pans.
+ Bug got excited and gave me a Bug-Hug last night and then smacked me in the face. Usually, if I get smacked in the face by her paw, she just gets me in the cheek or nose. Not last night. Last night, she got wiggly and wound up hitting me in the eye. No damage seems to be done to the actual eyeball (beyond being pushed by a dog), but it looks like she was able to scratch the inside of the eyelid, which explains why my eye itches and feels like it’s got an eyelash in it. Every so often my vision goes blurry and I’m just glad I’m off the next couple of days so I won’t be fucking with my eye while at work. And, at least, I didn’t get hit in the eye by her nubbin.
+ Creatively…I haven’t done jack shit.
+ I haven’t sketched/drawn anything
+ I keep forgetting what day it is so the comic is floundering (I feel bad despite posting a note that work is crazy because we’re in the holiday season and updates will be sporadic)
+ I submitted a story but haven’t heard anything back yet. I’m not surprised because I’m sure the amount of stories submitted is crazy high
+ I haven’t written anything and I feel kinda crappy about that. I was kind of hoping to do a self-imposed deadline of Yule/Christmas, like I did for Thanksgiving, but I haven’t done shit
+ I told a friend about a story I’m working on and, despite wanting to work on it, I have not opened the file in gods know how long
+ And this is why I am not a professional writer. I am terrible at keeping up with writing
The past…week or two I haven’t really even been reading. I think the last book I actually finished was Paperbacks from Hell (which is an awesome, fast read). I’ve started like four books (Where Nightmares Come From, Masters of Horror, Gated, Hunted In the Woods) not including any that I’d started and have yet to finish (like House of Leaves and The House of Small Shadows)
I don’t know if it’s all from just a feeling of general “blah”-ness or just being overwhelmed by everything that I haven’t done much. I did make some rice krispie treats (with pumpkin spice marshmallows mixed with marshmallow fluff) so I guess that’s something.
