I finally feel free enough to breathe and update and come back!
SO. Things that have happened in the past little while...| GOOD NEWS |
To put your minds at ease - I found a room
The room is temporary, it's only for 2 months, but it gives me some breathing space to save up a little bit again and find somewhere on a more permanent basis. Plus, the couple who own this house are super friendly and flexible (and they have cats!) - I have a feeling that if I was really stuck after 2 months they wouldn't kick me out, which is very reassuring!
Also - I got a job! It's monthly pay and it's a 3 month provisional trial, so I'm still a biiiit fucked for money right now, but the exciting thing is that I WILL eventually have money coming in! You have no idea how excited I am at the prospect of being able to buy my friends some things - so, so, so many of my friends deserve nothing less than diamond encrusted mansions for their love and generosity, but I'm sure they'd appreciate a drink or a dinner or something too! I won't be able to buy these until my second paycheck (which won't be 'til the end of November because all my first paycheck will be spent up re-paying people, agh!), but it'll be SOON. SO soon. I'm quite excited about this!
I have at least one commission to be working on, and I haven't forgotten about my contest prizes either! I have a good few ideas I want to draw; a comic, some personal depressing bullshite, some funny depressing bullshite hahaha - but I think I should probably just start off with a warm up doodle to get back into the feel of it. Crawl before I can run again, y'know? So expect something small soon!

In sad news - my beloved cat, Bam, who was 17, passed away a couple of weeks ago
I knew it was coming, but it doesn't make it any easier. It's only hit me in small bits - I haven't had the space to properly feel it what with th'whole looming homelessness thing, but I'm sure I'll be devastated when I go to the family home this weekend. But that's okay. It's okay to feel that.
Also, it's really weird adjusting to not being part of a couple. I don't really know what my identity is without another person, which is sad, and it does make me wake up some days still going "what's the point? Why am I even trying? Why am I doing a job/living in this city when I don't give a shit about me/don't even know what I want?" - which is hard.
However, today, I am just grateful to be here :3QUESTIONS
Are you excited for Halloween? Do you have any plans?
