One Day at a Time

I don't update my blog anymore and it makes me sad. What makes me the MOST sad is that I remember I used to write the most hilarious posts about nothing. I don't have anything funny to say anymore. I've lost my creativity. There are two reasons for this. 1.School 2.Work.

School has pretty much sucked the life out of me. Studying literature makes me not want to read. Studying how to write makes me not want to write. And the fact that I'm at school so much is just too much. So, I did what any natural quitter would do. I quit. No more school for me.

Work. I love my job. I do. I'm shocked everyday by the fact I love my job. Unfortunately, it is also sucking the life out of me. I feel that the girls I work with deserve to be my priority. So that's what I make them, and I'm working 40 hours a week, struggling not to go over hours. It's funny. I signed up for the job expecting to work 25-30 hours a week. No, my friends. No. But they love me and I love them and I just hope I'm not messing them up more because I'm crazy and enjoy being inappropriate. Just sayin'.

I dropped school hoping for some free time, but it seems that already those school days are filling with non-relaxing activities. At work, everyone has the motto of taking it one day at a time, staying in the moment, concentrating on the here and now. I'm trying. I really am. But it's hard. Anyway, I'm used to these situations. I seem to have a habit of throwing myself on the sword.

Oh well. It'll get better and I'll paint, and quill, and take photos and visit baby Paul and do all the things I need to do to be happy. :) Even now, I am happy, I promise. I'm just stressed. Hopefully my next post will be hilarious and witty and award-winning.

As always, Peace.

I look forward to hilarious and witty and award winning. No pressure, though. :)

In other news... I have some fun ideas for quilled earrings. I am not the master that you are with your full-page masterpieces, so I think I might just stick with earrings. Anyway... I think we should talk more about doing a booth at a fair this summer. Or maybe talk to the different boutiques around about getting a space. You know, with all that free time you have...

I know it isn't easy to say you quit, but I totally understand. That's why Nick didn't major in Creative Writing/English/Literature. He felt it sucked the life out of what should be a natural expression. I feel ya. You have a good heart wanting to give your all to these girls. Keep your chin up. :) I think you're fantastic.
