I am not doing great lately.
I still struggle with sleeping problems (a few times, I was ready to go out, but first let's lie down a little...and whoops,
I am asleep for hours!), I still juggle with domestic chores like shopping, cooking, cleaning, etc., and now, my computer with its new monitor.
It's not only as slow as molasses; it will not obey my every click. In fact, it even misbehaves. Just one click and THREE windows pop up or goes a page back when I want to go forward.
And now I have lost almost ALL of bookmarks I have saved on Internet and I want to get them back soon. Not only that; I just CAN'T afford to clean up or fix my stupid computer yet. (Even the "free" programs that I downloaded are demanding $$$ to do just that.) So I still go to the library from time to time to use the much faster computers there.
I have not finished cleaning my apartment for three months. I still sleep on the floor because the futon frame needs to be fixed. But it's piled high with blankets, plushies, and other stuff and I have not gotten around to clearing them off yet.
I put off too many things already; I can't even get myself to scan anything even though I DO have armloads of new fanart. And I'm not even working much on a single fanart, either.
I just had a little reunion with someone whom I knew in high school (she had moved to the area, BTW) and we had a great dinner at the local restaurant as well as ice cream afterwards. But she had teased me about some things, so I told her how I felt through PM on Facebook and now she's a bit icy toward me. Guess I'm just not great friend material anymore.
And it's also HARD
communicating with my other friend by e-mail. No wonder I have not seen him in person in two years.
If that isn't all, I am going to have some pressing financial issues in the near future. What little income I have is now being reduced some more and I still have to pay for Internet (I fell for the bait-and-switch trap when the cable company promised a very low price and I ended up paying far MORE than this. I have written a letter complaining about that, BTW.) And I do not want to reduce or postpone the payments for student loans anymore.
And I am a bit close to half-starving lately due to the fact healthier and more nourishing food isn't inexpensive or readily available around here and I frequently have to rely on much cheaper junk food to hold off hunger at least until I can go to the store two miles away. Not only that; I also have to reduce the amount of groceries now that I am getting even less money.
I'm supposed to work on something that is very demanding and time-consuming (like drawing comics), but like I said, I have sleep troubles that leave me feeling tired all the time. And I am actually determined,
I'm sure most of my problems mentioned above will be resolved in due time, but right now, I think I am a little overwhelmed and unhappy.
