Hey. It’s been a while. Sorry about that. Life’s been kind of crazy the last few months, and blogging has been the last thing on my mind. I have had the worst writer’s block, and I’ve lacked inspiration in every way possible. I haven’t really felt like ME the last few months. A lot has changed. My second source of income isn’t existent right now, so living paycheck to paycheck and trying to keep afloat has been a huge struggle. Money is emotionally draining, and curse whoever created money and negated the barter system. I am a crafty bitch, I’d be great at a good barter.
I recently wrote about disappointment. My shop is closing and due to that, the promotion everyone was preparing me for is nonexistent. That news came just before my second income disappeared. So it’s been stressful, tiring, and I’ve felt sort of lost. I haven’t been able to go back to school the way I wanted to. I haven’t been able to do a lot of the things I wanted to do. A lot of things have changed. And yeah, it fucking sucks, but I’m not dying and I’ll figure it out as I go and we are doing our best.
On the upside: I’m engaged! As of October 13th, 2017 – I’m officially engaged. It’s pretty awesome to know that despite all the struggle we are in right now, I’ve got someone on my side to keep me motivated and grounded and help me through this. We help each other. I’m inspired enough to write an engagement post later, I promise. In the meantime, how are you?
