and we're all like, "yay!"  
Surprisingly, changing medication has helped a good deal for general day to day living (I hope this lasts). I don't feel continually bone tired and fall over exhausted (I really hope this lasts). My mother also says I sound better and more confident, although I'll have to take her word on that one, as I seem to be utterly incapable of hearing the tone of my own voice. I feel "okay" now, except for when I think about what I want to do/upcoming months/job searching. Then I get the feeling that I am totally, utterly and completely screwed, and I have no idea how to make it any better. Oh God, oh God, not enough money, oh God, stupid bleeping economy, oh God, I can't wait, I can't wait. There may be a shut window ahead of me, but I have to keep on flying to somewhere.

Sometimes I wonder if it's normal that I'm actually happy to see it snow.

And now, doodles!


I'm glad I know the little demented things in the world.

Dress 01

It's amusing that I continually draw skirts and dresses, but almost never wear them myself. For some reason, I really like this doodle, even if the dress is nothing special and I didn't even get around to shoes. It may be her expression, or it may be that somehow, she turned out feeling a bit more ... flowing than my figures usually do.


So I like layers ...

In theory, this is supposedly the same girl as this one, but with her hair down. She is tentatively named Jolene. I can't quite think of a last name yet. I ran out of time on this one, and I'm pretty sure I want to change her shoes (oh help me, these are ridiculous). I do like her skirt, however.

Snow makes me happy, there nothing wrong that. Unless you have bought in to the the fallacy that Snow mean misery and work.

The child in me says, "OH MY GOD SNOW ANGELS YAY," and then the adult in me realizes that it'd probably be a bad idea to go to work in wet clothes. (And our most recent "snow storm" was actually half slush, and so I would've been swimming the backstroke, not making snow angels.)

Glad to hear you're feeling better or more like yourself. Sometimes a med switch really does wonders! Hopefully the therapy is helping too.

I'm so upset that I missed you while I was in town at Christmas, my phone completely stopped working in West Newton on Christmas Eve. :( Of course I didn't realize it until Christmas Day when we were on the road home and I tried to make Holiday calls. Long story short, my battery fried internal components and I got a new red phone out of the deal, but missed seeing you completely. :(

I have made arrangements for Tekkoshocon, so if you're still in that part of PA in April. We can visit then. I'll even spring for a badge for you if you're not working it or have some freebie connections for yourself.

I love the snow still, even if I fall on my a** while shoveling and clearing off my car. It's still beautiful and magical no matter what people say. Josh and I say we'd move further North and people look at us like we're crazy.

I love the tights, socks, boot combo on the last girl Jolene. I'd so wear that, not with a cropped hoodie mind you, but a full length one or layering on top. Definately gives me some ideas though.

As far as the job hunt goes. There are more people looking for marketing/graphics people than ever because businesses think advertising is the answer to the slump. Keep looking. I know you'll find something. It took me 3 years to have a permanent position find me from my resume on monster of all things. Keep plugging away and if you need any help. Let me know. I have a couple creative job hotlists that might help as well. I'm not sure what you are looking for exactely, but there are options out there and one of them will be a good fit for you.

Hugs! Emily

P.S. Any problems getting packages at your apartment?

You know, sometimes I think I must have a tank [edit: maybe a rock] for a phone, because it never does anything remotely catastrophic.

Let's keep in touch about Tekko ... I'm not sure yet! If I do go, I probably won't be working at all, since whowantscookies isn't doing the gameroom.

Re: Jolene
Sometimes I wish I had a sense of fashion, but then I realize I love being comfortable more.

No problem receiving packages here.
