oh right... money and stuff
So it's been about two months since I've been working overnight shift as a backroom inventory associate. The pay is certainly better than my last job... and less irritating... and a lot less interaction with customers. Downside is it's from 10pm to whenever I finish all my stuff (which can range from 7:30am to 9am).
My sleep schedule has been fucked up, it's greatly interfered with doing any art or writing, and I can't talk to Dev every night like I use to. It might sound like a dumb thing to complain about but I probably won't be able to see him irl until next year and the last time I saw him in was on Thanksgiving of last year... so yeah, it's been a pretty big deal to me, but we gotta make sacrifices I guess...
Anyway other updates: We have a new dog. A rodent that resembles Dobby from Harry Potter that we named Duke (or Dukey as I call him) I honestly didn't wanna keep him cuz I was sure no one was going to take care of him but he ended up staying anyway and I'm not the one paying for his shots and all that so I guess it's really no concern of mine (shrug). Made a few friends at my new job, and recently managed to make some to hang out
and get drunk and high
. I should probably smoke more often so I can get the munchies and gain back some weight (I somehow lost a few pounds and parents are nagging at me about it).
Today I've been a mix of lonely and aggravated (due to a stuffy nose and inflation of stupid people, particularly on FB) so what better way to distract myself than by updating here.
As for art related things, I'd like to thank everyone who has commented on my art and gave my helpful advice, it really means a lot. I know I never respond but it's become easier to just go to my inbox to look at the comments. If I respond, the comment gets deleted and I would have go to my gallery and click on a pic they're on which is too much a hassle for my lazy butt
