Busy busy busy busy left right left right...
If anyone knows what i'm quoting, you get virtual cookies XD
Anyways, that phrase just about sums up my life right now! Lots of work...many hours...little free time... Honestly by the time i'm off work, dogin anything sounds tiring... Including art, unfortunately. There's just no inspiration left in my life...it's driving me nuts! Hopefully not literally, the last thing I need is a break down on top of everything else, lol.
Work: Is getting better. It's still work of course, it's not something I look forward to. But it's not something I dread anymore either. It just sorta is. It helps that I know people at work now. Friends! Yay! I like having people to chat with! Myself and the other cashiers just sorta group together. We're all each other has out there sometimes, we bond over it, lol. Though I am a lot better on register than I thought I would be. Today, they actually had one of the new girls shadowing me while I checked people out...and then I was helping her out as she practiced. When I started all this a couple weeks ago, if you'd told me that today I would be helping someone else on register? I would have laughed my butt off, rofl. So I'm a little proud of myself right now XD But I've found my rhythm, I know what I'm doing, i'm more familiar with the store and what we have where... it's nice. I floundered a little those first few days, but I kinda found my feet. Just took a while, lol.
This week is a little miserable...they have me working 6 days in a row, which suuuuucks. I have next Wednesday off, and Thursday the store is closed for Thanksgiving, so yay! Two days off in a row! I'm gonna need it, rofl XD Especially since on Black Friday we open at 7am and I gotta be there by 6:30am. And work until 3. Ugh... I might die in the shopping frenzy, we shall see
Health: Is crazy still. My doc came up with the theory that the reason my liver is angry with me is cuz i've been taking too much tylenol. Yes, this sounds like a legitimate theory, as tylenol and the liver don't get along well. However, there's the slight issue that the pain started before I started taking tylenol so often just so I could get through my day. So he made me stop taking it. Tylenol is the only pain medication i'm supposed to take cuz of my UC. Everything else contains blood thinners, and that's bad paired with UC, cuz it means I might bleed through my intestines and make the UC worse and it's a whole mess of stuff. However, he gave me permission to take Aleve... which is good, because I literally need it to get through the day now. between weird liver pains and something in my digestive system basically freaking out... I seriously think I know what it feels like to have an alien trying to rip its way out of my middle. I wake up and feel ill from pain, it's not fun...
So yeah, i'm pissed at my doctor for not doing anything about the various problems at hand... but at this point there's not much I can do but try it his way and tell him when I see him in December that hellooooo it's not working please fix me ;_;
Other: My dad got a new job! He's been commuting an hour every day to Denver work work for a job he doesn't like lately, so he started applying to other jobs around the country... We've been in the Springs for 6 or 7 years now, so we're pretty ready to move again. Especially he and I, we have the itchy feet of the family
But he got the unofficial job offer from the people in Rhode Island this morning! He'll get the official one once the background check stuff goes through... But we're gonna be moving! To Rhode Island! Early next year! I'm seriously soooo excited you have no idea! We lived on the east coast (new jersey) when I was like...three, lol. But I don't remember it, so I don't count it. So East Coast, here comes Ale
Other other: My trip to visit my friend Alex down in Mexico next February is a go! It took a while to convince my parents that he's not a creepy internet serial killer, lol. But they finally believe him and me and I'm gonna go visit him! Even more excited about this than moving really... You guys know how bad I am at keeping conversations going...especially over the internet. Alex is the person I started talking to months ago and have yet to stop. And then it's only because we're sleeping or working or for some reason are unable to chat XD
Um...other news? Can't think of much... saw Catching Fire tonight, and WOW it was beyond amazing! I love the story so much better as movies, I feel it's a much better way to tell it and you can appreciate it all more when you can see the big picture like this. The vastness and the heartbreak and bleakness and emotion and technology and I seriously love seeing it on screen.
My mom and I went to Denver on Monday I think it was? Went to the Disney store and got a ton of Frozen merch to satisfy my current cravings. Mostly. Not really, but i'm still broke, so it'll have to be enough
2 shirts, 2 mugs, a journal and set of pens... I could have gotten more honestly, lol.
Alright, i'm officialy out of news. That's it from me, rofl. Sorry for the long journal. I talk too much. Either that or I need to write more journals more often to update you on little things as they happen so you don't get these walls of text
Follow me on tumblr if you like those more. I don't have much time to reblog stuff there, mostly I just post once a day about life stuff, lol.
Sorry for the lack of art, sorry for the pathetically slow replies on comments... and thanks so much for sticking with me you guys! It means a lot to have you all here, even though I don't have much to offer you right now, lol.
Love you all!
