Stressful!

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 5, 2013, 5:58 PM


Coming back from being sick I am feeling totally overwhelmed. @____@ So sorry for my inconsistent art flow...speed...thing.. >_>
I am finding myself staring at my to-do list and not knowing where to start. I know I just have to pick something and it'll all work out.. but I.. ugh I dunno. XD

My boyfriend got a new manager at work yesterday. He made a rally good impression. But since he was without one for about a week this old guy took over making the schedules. This guy sucks. So hard. We went from getting 38 hours a week to 19 this week. NINETEEN GUYS. ;A; I don't know that it's enough to cover our bills, so I am going to try to get an adoptable sheet done..

And I have also been talking to an old friend I thought I lost. It's nice, but it's kinda scary cause I don't want to mess up again.

And and, a lot of shows and anime I want to see are coming out all at once! I know that's silly to complain about, but it means I have to find time to watch it all! Haha!

Life. Forever stressful. LOL

I guess I am just venting a bit. But I wanted to apologize again for the wait on art. I'm trying not to force myself too much (or I might end up in an art block).
Thank you for being patient and understanding. I hope things are going better for you all!

Please pace yourself and get rest, getting too overwhelmed will only make you sick. Thinking about you and hoping things look up soon.:)

;w; I always care about my watchers! Without everyone I would just be a sad person drawing alone! ;A; that sounds terrible! LOL
I am feeling a bit better since I sat down last night and got the fullbodies I owe sketched out. It's a big step in progress even if it doesn't show. :3

I know you do Raine. It just makes me, and the others I'm sure, feel special. ^w^ ll
Oh that's good! I agree that that's a big step. I take so darned long to even get sketches done, orz~ >w<

Aww good <3
I got both fullbody sketches done in one night, so that was pretty fast for me. (I even got one almost lined). I think lineart takes the longest for me now. It used to be coloring base colors until ~XakiNyota taught me an easier way. XD

That is pretty fast! I dunno if I could do that. Recently, I've been taking days to just get this one chibi commission of mine done. ><
*peeks at their tutorials* oh nifty. There's some useful tips there! :D

Don't harm yourself with stress! I'm an expert at what that can do to you physically. ^^;

Aww, thank you! I am trying to take it easy and remind myself that I did mention I might take awhile in the commission info. It's nice knowing I'm supported too ;w;

Aw -Fixes Raine some tea- I'm sure you'll get back into things soon enough. ^-^

Oh goodness. D: That really does suck. :T I'm getting concerned about boyfriend's job since mom said Obama...passed? something saying that if someone is getting more than 28 hrs the place has to give them insurance...he gets 32+ and he doesn't have insurance with them so TwT I'm hoping they don't cut his hours because he's just scraping by now. :T He is trying to get a second job, though. =_= Poor guy... -terrible bum girlfriend-

Aw. :3 I sometimes wish I could contact some of my old friends again but then I wonder if we'd even still be friends or if we'd be too different now to stay friends. @-@

Haha! I WISH I had too many shows to watch. TwT I miss following a show. Merlin did just start back up again...but I've already missed the first ep TwT UGH

Aww thank you! ;w;

Ohh, I hope they don't cut his hours. I don't think that places should be allowed to cut hours like that just to avoid providing insurance. We should all take care of eachother, not try to squeeze the life out of eachother. :(

Normally I'm not too concerned losing friends, but this one I've known since I was a child and we're like brother and sister. I've been away from him for over a year and it was still bothering me, so I caved and apologized like crazy and now we're talking through e-mails trying to patch things up. ^^

Aww. I have so many. Like... @___@ AKB0048 came out today, then Once Upon a Time tomorrow, then Pretty Little Liars on Tuesday, Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai on Thursday. Not to mention a few things I am following on Hulu. O___O

Yea =_= I don't remember if people were let go or what but I know after whatever happened, Papa John's (a pizza place, not sure how nation wide that place is XD ) is like too cheap to spend an extra 5-6 cents on their employees to pay for insurance so people were like boycotting the place for a bit. Other places too don't want to pay for their employees insurance, I don't remember the list, though. Yea, unfortunately, Walmart doesn't give a shit. =_=; They have moved him to something else lately so maybe that means he's ok for now. (I do wish he'd make more of an effort to show up when he's supposed to, though...would look a lot better than him showing up late like he doesn't care about the job)

Aw. Yea, most 'friends' I've ever made IRL, I haven't had much of a connection with them that I was horribly upset that I lost them but the few good friends I had and lost contact with I'm a bit upset over. :T But that's good that you two are talking again ^-^ Hope all goes well <3

XD Mom watches Once Upon a Time and my sister's excited about PLL. XD I try to watch OUaT but @-@ I dunno...it doesn't appeal to me like I thought it would...

That's so lame. I'm glad people boycotted. It's just not right. :(
LOL my bf is always 15 minutes early to work. XD He hates being late.

Yeah same here. I had one other friend I had known forever that I lost, but I wasn't as upset as I thought I'd be. Maybe because I am still upset over how it ended? Not sure.

Ahhh! I love both those shows. Once is amazing. I wasn't sure about it the first few episodes, but I really love it now. >w< <33

Yea, there was a whole big stink about it online, too. Ugh it'd be a miracle if mine got there ON TIME. =_=; He's usually 'late' but not late enough for them to mark it as late...but I'm sure they're taking note anyway.

I kinda have something similar like that with an old friend of mine. =_= Felt a bit hurt for a few years when she ignored me (who did most everything with me years before) for new friends she made while in the band. So...I just kinda let that friendship fade away. (I don't really care to talk to her now either cos she's somewhat of a partier I guess. Not my cup of tea. Plus...@-@ She's one of those people all into drama and I can't handle that)

XD I only glance at it when mom's watching it. I'm so confused about it. XDDD She probably gets annoyed at me asking what's going on all the time. >///<

D: ohman. Well hopefully he doesn't get into trouble!

Ahh. For me I grew up with this guy, though he's really into drama. (Or rather we gossip and watch drama shows and stuff, we'd try to not partake in it ourselves) But after being together ALL the time we started to fight passive-aggressively on facebook and eventually things ended. @_@ I decided to step up and apologize first though.

Ahh, hahaha. I think it's interesting and I love seeing the twists on fairy-tale stories. Kinda sad there wasn't much about their stories this season though. =\ I would have liked more flashbacks.

Yea. I think one guy there like kinda looks out for him, though, cos he knows he needs the money. I just hope he doesn't get fed up with his laziness and think he's taking advantage of their 'friendship' I guess I could say (not sure how good of friends they are xD )

Ah. Sounds like it got pretty bad. >: I believe that if friends spend too much time together @-@ they end up fighting. Thus is the case I've seen with my sister letting her friends stay here. I kinda felt that way when I had to be around the same people every day at school. =_= I kinda didn't care to talk to another one of my friends near the end of our senior year because she got all in my face about some crap band I hated and I was just like 'Whoa ok...if yur gonna act like that about it just...don't speak to me' That's nice of you, though, to try to patch it up. :3 I hope it goes well!

I probably would've been even more lost. XD I kinda...didn't know what was going on after it turned into other fairy tales. I was like o_o WAIT WHAT?! I thought this was a Snow White thing...now there's the Mad Hatter and Rumpelstiltskin and all kinds of crap going on @-@ And..since when is Mulan a fairy tale? O-o I thought that was just a Disney movie thing

Well I'm glad he has someone watching out for him!

Yeah, being around people all the time is bound to cause fights. (I'm surprised that after 5+ years I've not fought much with my bf even though we are CONSTANTLY together, lol)
Thank you! It's going well so far, but it's going slowly since he just broke up with his bf. @__@

LOL. It's fairy-tale land so there's a ton of tales. It's fun seeing how they link them up and stuff while keeping main points of the stories.
I am pretty sure Mulan is a Chinese fairy-tale-type-thing. Either way I was SO excited to see here. (though she's kind of intense!)
