MY GOD it would have been glorious to have Tumblr when I was 14. It's a fangirl paradise. I searched for "Ichabod Crane" as I was watching Sleepy Hollow and I was down the rabbit hole for half and hour.
So this is probably TMI, but I need some reassurance.
And I couldn't be happier. It was a weird, fucked up year and I am glad it's over.
I'm so over the Holidays and they haven't even technically started yet. I just don't have the Holiday spirit this year. I've done all the Christmas-y stuff; hung lights (while swearing profusely), watched the Holiday movies (why is that McAllister kid so annoying?) and made the cookies, and I'm still not getting it.
There is a boy napping on my couch. I usually turn them out before coffee, but this one seems to be sticking. It's both fun and unnerving.
On this snowy monday morning, I was awoken to very very good news; they hired me! It's in my field, it has killer advantages, and top-notch salary, so I'm super excited! AND I start in January, so I'll have a lovely Christmas time and will start my new job fresh and relaxed. Yay me!
I thought we could share our inexpensive/DIY ideas, since gifting can get pretty costly.
This is the worst monday in the history of mondays. This is a venting post (you've been warned). Feel free to vent in the comments about how your monday is wonderful/horrible.
So I'm looking into some overseas work experience, and I've always dreamt of travelling/working to the UK.
I've sent so many resumes I can now type it by memory.
So I made bread today (work is slow, and I'm trying to be useful to society in some other way).
Sooo I've been single since FOREVER, so I thought I'd just make a profile on dating sites. All my friends keep telling me to do it, so I figured, why not? And... Is it me or are those sites full of creeps? I've had a profile for 3 days and got the craziest messages. It's very disturbing.
I was talking to a friend earlier about the lack of contract and my general discouragement towards freelancing, and casually mentioned I didn't even have money for a batch of business cards, and she just left my a 100$ bill as a "long-term loan" in order for me to have some cards printed. I've just sent my proofs to…
To help with my week from hell, faith has given me a sign I should just keep drawing. I entered a contest at my local office/art supply place, and I won!! It's a lovely set of 96 Prismacolor professional pencils, complete with a very posh briefcase. I can't believe I won something! Get ready for a lot of unrequested…
I've been doing freelance graphic design for a year and a half, and it's been good BUT:
And my backups were NOT up to date. I lost EVERYTHING. And this is my work tool, which means I have lost a lot of important data.
Today's Day of Leisure® has amounted to reading the paper, Glamour, InStyle and Vanity Fair.
I have a MacBook Pro, and I played Assassin's Creed like a maniac... I'm looking for similar games that I could play with my laptop... Any ideas? The selection is limited, but I'd like some recommendations.
Not bad considered I hadn't picked up my crayons in years.
