End-of-Spring Roundup

Ok, so I'm not keeping up with the writing. I'm not sure if it's because I'd gotten used to no one caring what I had to say, or if I feel like my thoughts just aren't worth sharing. My life is really boring... I may ask for help with short writing assignments.

We're heading into month 4. I had a few interviews (which I really thought I nailed!) and no callbacks. I've had several online "assessment tests" and I realized I really need to start studying more. I asked the internet universe for advice in transitioning to another career and got a lot of good study nuggets. My brain feels like it's about to explode most days. Add in the confusion, frustration and feelings of worthlessness, and you've got a very frazzled girl. I'm trying not to admit how down the whole thing has got me.

I got a mild break over Memorial Day weekend when one of my favorite aunts offered me a family heirloom: the wooden rocking chair that my great grandmother used to rock my grandfather in. It was a whirlwind trip across the state with very little family time, but visiting my family always makes me feel rejuvenated.

Our place flooded back in April. After 2 weeks of inspectors and assessments, the only work done: The owner decided to install a tankless water heater. Wonderful to have, but there's massive drywall work to be done here!

Celebrated a friend's birthday with him, but more importantly it was my first foray into painting again. My mom gave me an oil set and I experimented for the first time by painting miniature portraits of his pets. Re-emerging in the creative arts is a validation, but more of a way to get it out of my system. Henna, done. Painting, done. Graphic design, in progress as always. Sewing... eh, not so much. I'm a bridesmaid in his wedding this fall so I've got my work cut out for me in the coming months! More chances to flex my creativity.

And my gorgeous tomato plant got the blight and is pretty much dead. Nothing like investing so much time to have your efforts torn down in no time.

My plans for the future: STUDY STUDY STUDY!~ Languages, web, coding, etc. A trip to the TWC office to discuss. A trip to the post office for returns. Selling my junk on CL. Visiting Kat while she's in town. Finding a curio cabinet to fit my space. And of course, find a job!
