It’s been a while

I know, I haven’t posted in quite a while. I’ve been super busy lately.

Work has been pretty crappy. I’ve finally gotten myself caught up with my projects so I can’t wait till I can just go home and curl up in the bed. Next week won’t be to fun either but I’m going to take a 4 day weekend next weekend. So that will be wonderful. 

I’ve finally decided that my car is just most likely not going to make it through another winter. He’s just too old and I should invest in a nice new car. Waiting on loan approval sucks though. I should hear back today if I’m able to get the loan or not. If not I’m sure I can get one through a dealership. But that’s been stressful enough…

Lately I’ve been home more often so I’ve been able to spend some quality time with Sonic. He really is the greatest little hedgie. He loves to just sleep in his little bed next to me while I watch a movie and it’s pretty great. I’ll share some pictures of his quill-licious-ness. 

Halloween is coming up too so that’s fun. I don’t know if our original costume plan will come to fruition… It’s a rather ambitious costume and we only have a month… 

I haven’t had any time to work on any side projects lately as I feel like I’ve done nothing but run around and as soon as I get some down time the first thing I want to do is nap…

Alright, I’ll wrap this up. Cheers to a good weekend.





Almost Friday

I’m currently pretty bored here at work. I want to just go home and play with Sonic, but I’ve got several more hours to go.

Life has been pretty low key this week. I’ve got everything all prepped and ready to go for next week when I get my menus. I’m all caught up on side projects too, so I don’t really have anything to do. Tomorrow’s not going to be fun since I’ve got to be here really early and open. But at least I’ll get a few more hours on next paycheck. 

Speaking of paychecks; Tomorrow is payday Friday and I’m getting a few extra $’s because last Monday was a hoilday. So that’s funsies. Somehow I managed to save money this month and I’m not freaking out over money so much. But I guess that’s what I get for living as an artist. But I love my job (for the most part) so I’m not going to start complaining. 

I got myself a new phone! I’ve finally crossed over to the dark side and gotten myself a smartphone. I’m having issues with adjusting to the new huge keyboard. You’d think it’d be easy to go from a small key board to such a large one but I give myself a few days and I’m sure I won’t have anymore problems. I love having a smartphone already and don’t know how I went so long without one. 

We have a wedding to attend Saturday and I’m starting to panic a little more each day. I don’t really like to wear dresses, especially fancy ones. But hopefully I’ll be drunk enough to forget that I’m in one but not so drunk as to make an ass out of myself. I’m kind of good at that. :)

I have to open at work on Monday (that means no typical Piss & Moan Monday) too so I’m not really looking forward to that. I do get to take Thursday off next week so I can go to court and get all the divorce crap finished. I think I’ll feel better when that’s over and done with.

That’s about it here. 

Piss & Moan Monday

It’s time again for: Piss and Moan Monday! (says in excited game show host voice)

Yes, It’s Monday again. Which if you’re me, means that you have a whole week of work to look forward to. Yay… Not really much going on this week at work. We got ourselves a new cashier (who isn’t the best but at least I’m not doing her job) and we finally have a dishwasher! This makes me so very happy. I don’t have to try to do 4 people’s jobs and my own now I only have to do 2 people’s jobs and my own. It’s the last down week I have before I have to get the menus for next month done. So I’ll spend some time this week prepping all of my documents so it doesn’t take as long. I can’t believe we’re nearly halfway through September… Where does the time go? Also: PAY DAY FRIDAY THIS WEEK!

As you can tell from my posts lately I’ve found a bit of artistic inspiration and have been drawing. I’m trying to get my portfolio together so that I can get in at Avatar Studios so I can finally do what I love: Tattoos. It’s been far too long since my last apprenticeship and I kinda miss hanging around at a tattoo shop. However, since I’ve been doodling much more, I’ve been writing less. I feel like this is a sad thing but I’ve never really been very confident in my writing skills anyways. So hopefully I’ll have more art up soon.

I guess it wasn’t a really bad Piss & Moan Monday. I’m getting things done and feel good about where I’m going, so I feel like there’s not too much to piss & moan about. :) 

Ok Peeps. Keep it real!

Till next time: Sonic McPrickles portrait. Just look at that cute little wiggly nose! I love my baby boy!
