Sorry I've been so inactive here lately. I'm afraid that work has been working me really hard. I get paid hourly and suffice to say that I've worked enough overtime that I've got some cash to spare, which is great because I'm planning on flying out to visit my grandma next year.
Also, seeing as I now have money, I can actually buy my family gifts for Christmas. What a thought!
So what else has been going on?
I successfully got through all of Inktober, though I haven't gotten around to sitting down and scanning everything so I can post it here. Would y'all like to see what I did? I posted everything I did on Tumblr, and everything that was done with copics on my Instagram (chiyokins). It was a great exercise and I loved it, but once November rolled around my boss felt I was doing a good enough job to warrant me getting more responsibilities.
Pros to getting more responsibilities: this means my boss trusts me.
Cons to getting more responsibilities: Chiyo is working a lot more hours.
Pros to working a lot more hours: I get more moneys.
Cons to working a lot more hours: I have no life.
I'm just glad I have a job, really. And a safe place to live.
With the colder weather, however, I got to deal with my first frost on the windshield of my car. We don't have covered parking in my complex, so that night I had to go buy my first ice scraper. Let me tell you: it's worth paying the extra two dollars to get the larger scraper with the longer handle. I was cheap and bought the little one, which is cute and small... but it's hard to reach across the hood to get to the center of the windshield with it. lol. I'll see how long I last with it before I succumb and buy a larger one.
So what else have I been doing aside from work?
I bought Eldritch Horror, which is the most difficult and yet fun boardgame I've ever played and I love it. A pair of friends are coming to stay with me this weekend and we're going to play it. I am soooo stoked to finally get to play it with someone else instead of just, y'know, myself. (Gosh that sounds lonely.)
Well, time to clean the apartment while I can before my friends come to visit! I hope y'all are doing well and hopefully I can post some art on here again soon!
