Happy Holidays from your favorite blue kitty!
So I know I haven't really said much in a while and thought it'd be a good ideal to post up a bit of an update. Since my husband and I weren't able to raise the funds to go home for the holidays we both agreed to tap into our savings we were keeping to get a new car. (I'm crying a little inside right now) The plan is when we go home we're going to drive back with a vehicle my Mom is giving us. (She's kind enough to let us get back on our feet before paying for it) I'm also going to be grabbing my old rust bucket from home that we've been unsuccessful with selling. (Most people in Nevada are not accustomed to rust like the people of New York) When we get back I'm going into overdrive mode to look for a stable job, especially since I now know that volunteer work can be put down as job experience. The goal is to have one before the end of January so that we can pay back the money we owe to our family, pay off our credit card debt, and start saving to a decent down payment on a new car, (Hopefully we can get a decent sum if we use the old rust bucket as a turn in vehicle)
I would also like to go back to college sometime next year, instead of focusing on a specific degree I think I'm just going to work on trade skills right now so I can get a decent job. I'm heavily considering Cosmetology since It is short, I can get a job anywhere I move, work from home, and my husband would have less trips to the barber if I learn to cut his hair for him.
On other news I'm still having a lot of issues with family health that has me very stressed out. My grandfather still hasn't had the procedure done to fix his artery, my grandmother is going to have neck and back surgery soon for some nerve issues that have been causing her an unfair amount of pain, but I worry because she always has issues with anesthesia. there are a few other relatives of mine that are having health problems, but they remain inconclusive right now. My only aunt I have a good relationship with is actually waiting to see if she has cancer or not, so that is a bit of a worry.
Not to mention my Dad may or may not be alive in the next two years (I'm a bit more wary of believing anything with him until I hear it straight from the doctor because we have a bad relationship with him, he does have poor health, but sometimes lies about the extent of his issues to get attention which sets us in an emotional rollercoaster ride, so I tend to hold what he says with a grain of salt)
November is also a hard time for me because in February of 2010 I lost a close and dear friend of the family in an unfortunate accident, his birthday falls on Nov 23rd, and he would be the same age as my husband (Who's Birthday is Nov 4th) This year remembering him actually hit me a bit harder than usual and I ended up crying out of nowhere like a baby. Most people that know me would probably find this unfathomable since I never really cry, and it was a surprise to me to, but my husband says that is just how grief works. Now to discuss the only thing most of you probably care about...Art and my Fanfic. I'm still not in the mood for anything besides playing with that art pack I got from Waitress of FurAffinity. I'm sorry if I'm disappointing you by not posting anything truly original at the moment, but I hope explaining everything I'm going through helps shed a little perspective. I might be more productive in 2015, but as it stands I don't see myself doing anything too special for the rest of 2014. I still have almost 0% inspiration or even drive to draw anything. Again, I'm sorry for the inconvenience of my hiatus.
