Thank you all for your patience and support. Seeing your comments is a bright spot in otherwise stressful and cloudy days.
How is my life stressful in this chapter of my life? Let me count the ways.
1. One of my roommates is moving out.
It's not an angry parting, she's leaving to live with a mutual friend who needs a roommate. But over the past few months, I've been struggling with bitterness over the whole thing, due to some poor choices on her part. Most of my poor temper is my fault, and it's been jarring for me. I'm not an angry person, and I don't usually hold grudges, but I've been struggling to forgive my close friend. Not the least because
2. My roommates and I now have to move out.
Yeah. My roommate deciding she needed a change of scene has forced the rest of us to uproot because we can no longer afford our home. So the last few weeks have been touring houses, stressing about finances, trying to get all our ducks in a row. We've found a place now, and I'm excited about it, but I have the sense of impending doom. I won't be at ease until we've moved in. And we still have to sort out utilities and how to go about dividing bills, which we haven't had to do at our current place.
3. Of course, all this happens right before I'm going to some cons.
I'm going to Planet Comicon in Kansas City this coming weekend to show my art to some comic artists to gauge what I need to do to get a job. That's pretty straight forward, except it's the weekend before we're supposed to move out.
At the end of June, though, I'm running my first booth at Smallville Comicon in Hutchinson, KS. I still have a lot of art to finish for that, have to figure out printing and booth set-up and prices, and the deadline is coming on fast. >.< I'm not used to planning stuffs so far in advance, it makes me nervous. I'm excited, but terrified.
So yeah, life is super stressful. But there are a lot of things I'm excited about.
1. I'm going to buy a Venus flytrap when we move in to our new place.
2. Our new place, which is just down the street from my brother. (I love my bro.)
3. Decorating our new home.
4. I am super excited about Smallville comicon, no matter how crazed it makes me.
5. A lot of new ideas are bouncing around, but I'm not sure yet what will come of them. Still exciting, though.
Thanks for reading this long post, but I'm glad to keep you informed on my life, as I see you as a sort of Internet family.
God bless, especially all of you who are dealing with year-end exams, etc.
