- Saturday I finally posted my fan comic on Tumblr. The reception was
pretty okay--people liked it and I got several surprising private
messages from people who REALLY enjoyed how I wrote it. (Wow!) I made
the decision to stop applying for jobs and take the one I was offered
unless one of the other ones I'd had some forward motion with came
through and seemed better.
- Sunday I took a ride out to
the ATM to deposit my last check from my old job. (I got severance!) It
was kinda sad. I practiced ukulele but wasn't able to get the song down
well enough to make a recording. I also posted my comic in a Facebook
forum for fans and got a ton of nice, supportive comments. Which is
really nice after all that work I put in last week on making it the best
it could be.
- Monday was Presidents' Day, and it was
irrelevant for me because I DON'T HAVE A JOB HAHA. I went grocery
shopping and got my ukulele video done. And I drew a picture for the
next new cartoon episode.
- Tuesday I found out my friend
Meghan got the job she'd been hoping for, which is thrilling. I also
went to Chili's and Michael's with my mom, where I got some new markers
and some salad and fries. ;) I played my ukulele video for my mom but
she laughed at it because she says I'm really bad at whistling. (There's
whistling in the video.) Can't win them all! Also got into a pointless
argument on the Internet which resulted in the other person getting
kicked out of the group. Yikes.
- Wednesday I had a low energy day. Spent the time drawing the preliminary sketches for my next So You Write
comic and watching videos, then going out with Jeaux to Five Guys. I
tried to nap but my neighbors' noise wouldn't let me. Did some reading
after Jeaux left.
- Thursday I went to the phone store to
get my phone checked out because it's been acting weird. Got stuck
behind a customer who literally bogarted the employee's attention for
HALF AN HOUR before he could help me. They sold me a memory card that
should help my phone stop freezing and rebooting itself, but I don't
know. I also reached out to a driving school to see if I could schedule
driving lessons, and left a message. And I made some sushi, but ran out
of seaweed paper before I ran out of rice. Oh, and I accepted the job offer
so now I'm officially scheduled to start my new job in March. Later I
talked to Victor on the phone and drew some of my webcomic.
- Friday I finished the webcomic, scheduled driving lessons for the week before I go back to work, went to Jeaux's for a new cartoon (the episode was "Rocknaldo," haha), and didn't do much except chill on the Internet after that.
- Isabelle gave it a two-star review on Goodreads.
- Finished this week: Dykes to Watch Out For by Alison Bechdel. Review coming soon.
- Currently reading: Welcome to the Slipstream by Natalka Burian.
This week's performance was "Human Behaviour" by Björk. (This one's pretty weird, if you're not familiar with the song anyway.)
