So, yeah, I’ve been having a horrid time coming on here to post my writings for the day. From the bottom of my heart, I’m sorry. I’ve been staying bust offline which makes me tired which in turn makes me sit down and go, “Nah, I don’t need to post tonight. I don’t think I’m doing much tomorrow”. But the thing is, I find myself doing stuff when I think I’m not busy. Not just that, but now that my seasonal job is officially over, I’ve been spending hours online filling out applications, then calling those places. Normally, I wouldn’t worry too much and take it slow, but I have a friend who’s a nerd like me, and even thought we’re fairly new friends, we hit it off well. And I generally like spending one on one time with the person, like seeing a movie or going to the mall, but this friend, having common interests, asked me if I could go to two conventions with her.
The first is a small local one day comic con. It’s cheap, and seriously close. So of course, I said yes. But when I go to conventions, I know it ain’t a cheap affair for me. It’s fine. I can handle a small spending spree. But then she tells me of a sci-fi and fantasy con that’s about a half hour away from us in April. Not only that, it’s $45 at the door and at this point $40 in advance (totally missed the $35 cut off period). Right next to anything anime and manga related, sci-fi and fantasy are my things. I love all things alien. So this a huge, “yes I want to go”! Not only that, so far I’m her only friend with a love for all things nerdy.
So what I’m trying to say is, I’m attempting to find a job to get myself some income before I go off on some adventures into conventions where I’ll be losing more money than I can make in a year. And I hear you say “Well, control your spending!” And I want to shout, “Have you been to one of those!?” Anyway, it’s not just spending…it’s gas money as well. I don’t own a car, I drive my mom’s. And my friend’s plan is to drive their everyday, that’s at least an hour of driving not counting traffic. That’s a lot of gas. But on the flip side, if we don’t drive back and forth and stay their, that’s a lot of money to spend a weekend in a hotel.
When there’s a lot of travel involved, even 30 mins, these things aren’t cheap! I wish they were, but they’re not.
But back to my irregular posting…I find myself doing things all day. So between job hunting, doing regular household chores, writing for my story, and writing my prompts, and the occasional outing with friends, I’m tired once 9PM hits. I’m truly sorry for not posting. But once I catch up, I’m changing my posting of everyday for the prompts to just once a week. Either all in one post, or separate ones throughout the day. I hope to get a schedule written down soon, and everything done…here’s to being a regular poster in the near future I hope.
