I totally forgot to mention it, but I got a job I really love and it's exactly what I was hoping for. Kind of was one of those right thing at the right time moments and about who I knew, not what I knew lol.
I have another interview today for another job though and I'm nervous and excited.
Definitely going on a run later to get all these nerves out.

Yay that's awesome Gwennie. I'm happy for you. Good luck on the interview today! You'll do great.

I've got two florist consultantions this weekend. Hopefully I can get flowers set away for the wedding. Then we have food and hair and make for that day to figure out. Then I think I am done with the major stuff. \o/

Thanks Keke! ❤️❤️
I did do good I guess, I got that job as well. So now I'm essentially working full time/ a little over that between both jobs. Even better, I work with people I actually really like and don't dread going to work every day like I did at my last job. It's a good experience, I'm lucky.
Oh and I'm getting a DNA/gene mapping test done to see where my family actually came from. We guessed/assumed based off of what we knew of family "history" but it turns out my grandparents were both adopted and they never actually knew for sure. Just told stories of what they wanted us to hear. I want to know. So, here we are lol. I get to find out in a month or so. Hopefully my grandmother lives long enough to hear the truth, but I doubt it now. That's a whole other story.
Congrats Bella! Six Flags seems like it could be pretty cool.

It has been far too long since I've actually been on here.
Anywho, I come bearing good news.

for about the last 3 or so months I have been studying to get my GED!
The library in my town has a free program that let's me go to classes for free.
I only go on Tuesdays And Thursdays from 9am-11:30pm.

I took a pre-test for Language Arts.
Sadly it wasn't a passing score. But it was only about 4 off from a passing score.
But my instructor is super nice and actually teaches me things I actually understand.

And my classmates are so sweet and encouraging.
Not to mention, they bring some treats for us too. So I love going to my classes.
I learn way more there compared to when I actually went to public school.

And Since we got our tax refund, We are planning to use some of that money
to get my license so my life is finally actually moving forward!
I am back from my Hiatus.

So not much has been going on in my life, and I'm still struggling to find a decent job to support myself.

BUT! The good news is that things at my day job are going pretty well.

I've basically "moved up" from ushering to Box Office, and as a result I've started getting some Concessions Register shifts as well. It actually just started because the manager who does the schedule asked if I'd want to "branch out" some more, because ever since I transferred we'd agreed I'd only do Usher shifts since that's where I felt the most comfortable.

But it's been about a year now, so I agreed to try branching out and got some Box shifts, and it was supposed to be 50/50 Box and Ushering, but then the normal schedule manager had to go on a LONG vacation, and the manager who covered for her started giving me just Box and Concessions Reg shifts.

I've been told I'm doing good at them, though. My first day in Concessions, my supervisor complimented me to the GM. And just a few days ago the manager who originally suggested I branch out came back and was talking to the GM about it, and GM himself said I've been doing really well in Box. So it's nice to know that they think well and seem to be impressed with me.

I also volunteered to be an "Ambassador" for a new program the theatre introduced. The company just introduced a mobile-based reward program, and they wanted employees from each theatre to volunteer as "Ambassadors" to help educate the other employees and customers in how the program works. I was thinking about volunteering at first, but I was kind of shy. And then three managers pulled me aside one day and asked if I was interested, because apparently ALL THREE OF THEM suggested me for it (they then went on to argue over who nominated me first. It was kind of funny). So I told them that I had been thinking about it and was willing to join, so they passed it on to the GM.

The best part is the Ambassadors get a second work shirt (normally everyone only gets one, but now we have our Ambassador shirts and our normal work shirts), and one day I got to leave work early to go on an adventure with the other ambassadors to a seminar about the rewards program. (The theatre it was at was HUGE! 25 SCREENS! I would not want to be an usher there). And then when we got back we got paid for basically driving two and a half hours or so each way.

So yeah, the job search hasn't been working out so far, but the Day Job seems to be shaping into a pretty satisfying Plan B, though slowly. Now I just need a big enough raise to support myself.

Exciting stuff going on for people, it seems -- congratulations as appropriate! :D

I remember a while back (maybe half a year or a year ago?) I posted some fairly down stuff in the Rants thread, so I figured I'd check in here and mention that things are going way better in general now, even though I did hit a rough patch at the start of the year.

A lot has been going on for me since I last posted here, but I'll be focusing on the good stuff (which does, thankfully, outweigh the bad). I finally quit the job/volunteer position that -- despite how much I used to love it -- had been dragging me down so much the last few years, and I've been using that energy to do a lot of things I'd meant to do for a long time. I've been writing more, doing a lot more art, and I finally got down to it and got the webcomic idea I've had for a while started. Since I just finished getting that all launched and whatnot today, I'm feeling pretty good!

I'm also feeling better in a general way than I have been recently. I've had less trouble walking past dogs, mostly less trouble talking to people when I need to (okay, there are still some things I really probably ought to be doing in that vein but aren't because I'm too scared, but hey, still progress), and that sort of thing.

Oh yeah, and I finally got time to put together my new computer, and it's right nice having a more-powerful-than-necessary computer again rather than one that was barely managing the latest games. I think also since I last posted anything here we took in three cats, so that's awesome; I've always loved cats, and having critters like that around seems to help everything. We'd thought we couldn't have any because of my brother's allergies, but it turns out he's not allergic to these, so that was a great thing to find out.

Heck, if things keep up like this, maybe I'll actually be able to find a few hours now and again to get back into dolling. I've been kind of wanting to give it another shot again, but we'll see!

Anyhow, I'm generally still busy, but now I'm busy doing things that I want to do that have some positive effect on what I want to be doing later, so that's a great improvement from this time last year. I hadn't even quite realised how much all that stuff was dragging me down and stressing me out until I finally stopped doing it and started concentrating on other things.

So, I had a baby, and he's really cute. (click the thumbnails to see the giant pictures)

Image

He's basically been taking up all my time, and we had a few issues that basically meant I was with him like 24/7 and he wasn't really napping and...well, I am just now starting to be able to sit down at the computer again!

Here's a couple more current pictures:

Basically, I love him <3

Almost complete with my Alolan Pokédex! It's sitting at 91%.

I used to never be quite as keen on finishing the dex, but I think this is the quickest time I've been on board seeing every Pokémon in the region.

It's practically dead after the holidays and I'm one of the only ones working. It's so tempting to go sock sliding across the floor (except it's carpet).

AND I got a moving box, which roughly translates to a 2ftx3ft box that comes with a roller, and it is so tempting to run it all over the floor like a maniac.

Also, on a more serious note, I got to see my nephews for Christmas again! The little one doesn't eat very well, so he's always much smaller than his brother (they're identical twins) and as a result lags some developmentally. Not a ton, but a solid month or so is noticeable when they're less than a year old. So I thought at first that he hadn't changed since I saw him last, whereas his brother was standing, but he can stand too! Just not as well! It was great!
