This is hopefully the end of a really bad week.
normally a downer, or pessimist, but the past few days have been quite
depressing. It began, I think, with my computer refusing to start. I
left it on during dinner, came back to wake it up, and it was like
"uh... nope I think I'll stay asleep thanks." My slightly computer-savvy
friend looked at it to no avail, so I ended up taking it into the shop
yesterday. Thankfully I have all my personal film files on a separate
hard drive. The rest of my artwork, though... and my photos... and typed
files... uh not so much. But I have another friend who says he could
get everything off it in case The Monarch (as a girl, I am required to
name my inanimate objects) decides to completely peace out on me.
Almost immediately after this happened, I got a speeding ticket,
which granted was my own fault. Why is it always motorcycle cops that
pull me over? (3 times! Only got a ticket once before though) BUT in my
defense, it was an area that goes from a 50 mph zone to 40, then down to
35 in less than 1/2 mile. I was with my older sister the next day in
that very spot, and she was going 70! And I'm not saying she was the
only one going that speed, either. ( I was caught at 59 at the 40 sign) Anyway, this adds another $400 to my list of expenditures.
Oh, and lets not forget that along with these inevitable expensive
events I also am out of work. I usually have a steady job as a
nanny/babysitter to two young girls in the mornings, but it seems like
the mom (who is pregnant with a third) will not be returning to her job
anytime soon, so in turn leaves me jobless as well :(
These spurts of bad luck seem to have brought smaller friends
with them, including embarrassing moments and badly thought out remarks.
I couldn't seem to do anything right in the past few days. I hope this streak ends soon, like today.
Enough with the ranting, I just needed to put this down for the next time I feel things are going badly. That way they won't look too bad? Haha maybe. I hope my computer does get fixed soon, so I can post some doodles and sketches.
