Life news this week:
- Saturday I just didn't have energy for anything so I made a bunch of posts on Amino and did my blogging. I think I've come to the conclusion that I can't afford to buy any holiday gifts.
- Sunday I did karaoke and made a video for my writing channel but I didn't post it until later in the week. I did practice my ukulele too but I just didn't feel like I had any motivation to learn it well enough to perform it. Paid some bills and sulked about not getting anything done for the whole long weekend.
- Monday I went back to work and though it was a drag, things were okay. I had a lot of work to do and that distracted me. I posted some Amino stuff, prepared some utility coordination letters, and had a meeting at work. Mom came by and helped me figure out what curtains I'm eventually going to put up.
- Tuesday I got my staffing chart done at the office but I had to stay late to finish it along with a database my boss needed for the next day's meeting. I had some data crap to organize at home and I just keep being exhausted so I fell asleep.
- Wednesday was okay, got a bunch of stuff figured out and turned in this staffing chart thing for a District 7 proposal. It was intense. Jeaux took me to Friday's and we watched a couple episodes of Search Party and talked about comics.
- Thursday I got another featured post on Amino (man, even after I get banned the place still digs me) and I found out they caught that serial killer. And also our firm won a new contract! We got the sidewalk job in Lakeland. That is a huge happy deal. We should get a cake. Later I had some pizza, chatted on the phone with Victor, and drew my comic.
- Friday I had to pay some bills (especially rent, ugh, since moving to the new house it really just kicks the air out of my lungs) and I uphill-battled my way through a proposal on my own so I could have something to give my boss at the end of the day. He wants to chase this thing even though we haven't really done any work on it so I have to work on the weekend. I don't mind, but I also feel like I am not getting enough rest and I'm getting a mouth ulcer which happens when I'm stressed.
- Katie/Doing Dewey gave it a three-star review on Goodreads, which is a repeat of the review left for it on Doing Dewey Decimal as a separate blog entry.
- Amazon Customer gave it a five-star review on Amazon.
- Finished this week: Steven Universe: Anti-Gravity by Talya Perper, Queenie Chan, and Jenna Ayoub. Five-star review.
- Currently reading: The Magicians by Lev Grossman.
This week's song was "Possession" by Sarah McLachlan.

|Staffing chart came out pretty well, huh!|
