Where I’ve Been
Yeah. It’s been a rough week. Feels like my anxiety has kicked into overdrive for a whole number of reasons.

A Puddle of Emotions
I swear, I will get back to Drawtober eventually. I just needed to get this out of my head. Long story short: I got the job.

Summer goal: achieved. I am feeling…a mix of emotions. I’m super excited, don’t get me wrong… Continue reading Adulting: PROMOTION
Holy crap, June has been a month. Just a lot of stuff happening all at the same time. The job interviews. Attempting to wait patiently to hear back about said job interviews. Mom heading off to the Ukraine. The start of Summer Vacation/Library’s Busy Season. Throw in perhaps the weirdest Father’s Day weekend I’ve had… Continue reading Processing…
