I'm still here...

Hi everyone.

Just dropping a line to let you all know how things are going with me.

It's amazing how little prospects for the future can de-modivate you to the point of being a clay blob sitting in your apartment. Yet, that's where I am as of late. I had three freelance gigs all say I was hired in the last few weeks, gigs that would have kept me for half a year, all just fall off a cliff with ignored pone calls and just no replies or follow ups. I mean, why have interviews if you are not going through with something?

I've applied to more things than I can count and no leads on anything. Everyone wants work for free. Work of all stripes, which is what I've applied to. I know I'm not alone in this, but gawd it's getting on my never.

I've finally gotten my Granny to stop talking like she's going to fix stuff and just listen, because there is nothing at all that a person whats to hear less than someone thinking  they can fix their complaint.

So as of now I'm in the same spot I was a few weeks ago. Lucky for me I have a great friend who is helping me out a bit.

I feel like I'm trying to run in waist deep mud and I'm getting to the point where I just want to fall asleep in it.

I know, really hopeful progress report, right?

Still mending and sewing, but that's pretty much my only income right now. If I have to fill out one more online job questionnaire I think I'm going to scream. But I will fill it out.

Okay, lovely people. I'm sure I'll garner motivation to start sewing again. I as hoping to sew for Viva Las Vegas, but I don't think I can afford to go this year. I'm super bummed by that.

I'll check in next week.

Talk to you all later.

Keep writing, girl. Keep crying, screaming, WHATEVER you have to do to keep sanity and a bit of positivity.

I, for one, am reading.
