Today, I got a letter from the job center about a possible job so I made an application and e-mailed it to the company. I got a feeling that they're having a hard time finding employees so I'm carefully optimistic.
I now have no reason to post here until at least Friday night. For now.
Key words are "for now". And stuff happened yesterday.
Yesterday in gym, we had to play some game where you kicked one soccer ball and dribbled another around the bases on the baseball field. (I couldn't even tell you the real name of the game, but it was some sad mix of kickball and soccer. Most kids came up with derogatory names for the game, I just called it "40 minutes of my life I'm never going to get back".) We couldn't even use our hands, which makes no sense since soccer is literally the only sport on earth I can think of where using your hands isn't half the reason why you have the talent to play. It just didn't work out, and a couple minutes after a rule about having to pass the kicked ball three times before getting anyone out (guaranteeing that everyone got to first base in the process) was repealed, my team and the other got in a dispute over it. I yelled at the kid who was kicking to get her hearing checked. She yelled that back. I flipped her off. We all went to go screw around until class was over.
Then I had to go with my mom to drop off my grandma, who was meeting mom's younger sister halfway between our house and her house because she was forced to fly into Fargo. So I thought we were going to drop Isaiah and Zachary off at piano, leave at 4, get grandma dropped off and the beef mom's sister was giving us around 6 or 6:30, leave, then be home by 9. Well, we left after picking up Isaiah and Zachary from piano at 5, got there around 7:30, (would've been sooner, but we had to pull over so mom didn't have to eat her Whopper and drive at the same time) got the beef, and were home at...10. And then of course all the caffeine I consumed finally kicked in within 5 minutes of getting home, and I couldn't sleep.
I think during my free hour today, instead of drawing or reading or something like that, I'll just take a nap.
Phew. Glas that's over.
Just finished art exam, feel it went well, happy! If I'd thought about it I'd've taken a photo of the little coffee cups I designed to show you all.
Also- It was sneakily comic development: the made up coffee shop I was doing branding for (Excelsior! Coffee) is to be featured in the town where my comic (that doesn't exist yet but is coming along nicely) will be set.
Me, seconds ago:I'd've taken a photo of the little coffee cups I designed to show you all
actually I've got more cups, I could make print the designs off again and make more. But I won't, not for a while, anyway- I don't want to think about it anymore now it's over/
I don't even know what my comic is called any more.
Today I got back from a school trip to Washington, DC at 12:45 AM. I got to sleep at 2-something and then slept until 7-ish because my sister woke me up, even though all the middle schoolers have the day off today.
Today, I went to DQ. And now after drinking down a large Moolatte, I've got to get to work on my new comic project for one of my friends. And since I'm completely incompetent when it comes to doing multiple projects at once (does anyone remember any of my old comics? Of course not. My main comic dominated the other or others) I've had to decide if my comic or the project was more important.
On the one hand, I want to try and manage multiple projects successfully at once. On the other hand, both comics end up suffering quality wise big time whenever I do try. Also on that other hand, if I don't finish the project in three weeks, I owe the guy I'm drawing it for $20. Plus, this is the first time I've ever had anyone request a full length comic story since I started drawing comics.
So I decided that in order to keep my comic afloat and my sanity in tact, I'd put GC on hiatus for the next 2-3 weeks, work on the project, give it to him, and then resume my comic sometime around my comic's first anniversary. That was probably the hardest decision I made this week.
I better go get to work instead of watching the Twins game.
