I feel like a lot of my journals have this title, ahaha.
Just a heads up of how things will be for a while and new things for you to look forward to c:
So first, my new job! Yes! Sales associate at a candy store in the mall. My coworkers all seem like rad people, and I'm enjoying it so far. ^^ It looks like, on average, I'll be working three days a week, up to 15 hours. I am also starting driver's ed tomorrow, which is about six hours a week. I'm also still attending assertiveness group once a week for an hour, as well as going to one-on-one therapy every week or two for an hour.
All this together just means that I don't have as much time for art now! Since I had pretty much no life before, I was pretty much always online and/or drawing xD Art trades were already closed, but I probably won't be doing any more for a while; besides everything listed above, I need to work on making more Christmas presents for my family!
I also really really want to open custom/MYO Wishfuls! I've been slowly adding to the interactive reference sheet I've been making, and I'll be putting an image version in my sta.sh for people who can't load Flash on their devices - but anyway, once that's done, Wishful stuff will be open! There isn't any new information; it's just the species guide in a visual format so you can see examples (of physical features, Wish types and locations, etc.)
The girl at work who I replaced (she quit; today was her last day) gave me one of her work t-shirts as well as one of her hoodies, which is awesome because it's like $30 for me to order my own hoodie xD I threw random things into the washer so I could justify running a load when all I really wanted was this hoodie washed, lol (I'm wearing it right now). And the couple hours I had by myself at work today went well. All hell didn't break loose like I was terrified of. In fact, I think I only rang up like ten purchases during the whole time; it was pretty dead, which was pretty boring, but for still being new, I would prefer that to having tons of customers!
I feel a little weird considering that all day Friday I was freaking out - I was having something short of an anxiety attack all day, and felt like hurting myself... fortunately, two of my friends came over, and brought me food, and kept me company for a few hours, which was really nice ;u; I still feel abnormal and like kind of a fuck-up for having, well, fits of anxiety and depression... but I feel pretty good on the whole right now??
There was an employee meeting today after closing, just the four of us, so I finally got to meet the one girl I hadn't yet, and they're all really cool people. <3 I'm the oldest omg. I knew this day would come, but I thought I would be closer to 30 than to 20 when it happened! Two of the girls (including the one who quit) expressed vivid surprise when they learned my age xD I think they think I'm like 19 or something, ahaha. I'm starting to love the shock on peoples' faces when they learn that I'm 24. One of my coworkers called me "Grandma" xD so I called them all "young whippersnappers". I should have told them to get off my lawn.
I also learned that energy drinks aren't disgusting like I thought they would be! I was sipping on a Monster through my whole shift today, and they're so delicious and fruity... *_*
