Well, it's been a while, hasn't it? Yes...
I started a job in November. It sucks and has consumed 99.9% of my waking hours due to workload and drive time. Speaking of drive time, my effective rate of pay with gas costs factored in comes out to less than minimum wage before taxes, despite making almost twice that much.
I was diagnosed with bipolar at the end of June after a trip to the psych ward. It's not surprising. Both of my parents have bipolar, and I've suspected for quite a while that I did too. But now it's official, and I can't get fired for it again. The hospitalisation was simultaneously the best and worst thing that has happened to me, and I am glad it happened. Learned a lot, got the help I needed, and found out what true boredom really is.
I heart my meds, because they've given me my words back, which thrills the piss out of me.
I've started revising stories and developing a legitimate strategy to get out of the "real job" grind (unless it's somewhere I can sit down for most of the day, because my knees have been killing me lately.) I haven't been working so much on my art, but I figure there are better people out there than me who can draw these things I've got in my head. So it's NBD.
And finally and perhaps most importantly, I have a new-ish (since the middle of December, but officially 1 January) boyfriend who is awesome at cooking and good to me and not a stupid cunt.
So the aforementioned articles are the highlights of the past uh, almost ten months I guess. Sorry for being a slackass, dA.
