Things have been rather dead here lately for me. And it's not for lack of trying. Between switching jobs, finding new love, and prepping whatever free time I have for cons, it's been slightly less than exciting around here.
Working at Joann's was somewhat like riding a roller coaster through hell. Except it got stuck while hanging upside down and the flames danced below just enough to make you wonder if you'd die from the blood rushing to your head or the heat melting your seat belt off. The job itself wasn't terrible, but the management was just plain horrid. I would rather go back to college and have the toughest teachers lecturing me about my grades being less than perfect then have my old boss give me a piss attitude of calling off sick when I couldn't sit up on the cough without puking. Let's just say I had a few final straws that motivated me to find employment elsewhere. And now that I have, I couldn't be happier. It's still part time, and I only work tuesdays through thursdays from nine to five, and I sew all day. I'm pretty much working in a small sweat shop but I've never been happier at a job, and that includes the mural painting I did.
As for the new bf, it was a bit of a hard transition. Things between my ex and I weren't awful, but I found I didn't feel the same way as I used to. And it really sucks with that. For starters, I feel awful for breaking his heart, but I have to do what's best for me. Relationships are two people, but always make yourself first priority. And with the other guy, he's a sweetheart and I really can't help feeling the way I do.
Now I'm just ready for Matsuricon though, and getting ready to have a fun time next weekend! Except I hardly have any time to work on my cosplay! I work during the week and I've been house sitting so much everywhere else I'm hardly home except today and next monday! I better get started soon!
