Boy. These last two months have been one heck of a ride. I moved out of my old apartment and in with my boyfriend, I actually have a job (sort of — but more on that later), I’ve started cutting carbs, and I just turned twenty-four. Things seem to be going pretty well, right? Well, they are. For the most part, anyway.
Cutting carbs has made me the crankiest person I’ve ever met and I bless the patience my boyfriend has. He has been a saint through all of this and I count myself up there with the lucky ones. That being said, have any of you ever tried cutting carbs? That shit is HARD! Like, I never knew how much I loved and adored them until I decided to say goodbye. Thankfully I can already see results or I’d have given up (yes, I’m one of THOSE people) and let the carbs back into my arms and my heart. As it stands, I go five days a week low carb and the other two days low calorie, except for yesterday. It was my birthday and I deserved delicious food.
Low carb may be helping me look and feel better, but it makes the wallet feel awful. But, this is the perfect segway (is that even right? I have no idea if I’ve ever typed that word before..) into… Job talk! I warned you that it was coming. I technically have two jobs, though only one gives me a paycheck as of now. And even that’s scarce. Allow me to elaborate. I have a web comic (you can find it here: https://tapas.io/series/Life-With-Gremlins ) that I’ve been planning for a few months now. It’s actually not that complex, but it took a long time to find an art style like I both like and allows me to mass produce pages in I need to. That’s the job that doesn’t give me a pay check, but I hope someday I’ll make a little something from it. Regardless, I absolutely love making it and don’t see myself stopping.
Now, the job I have that actually pays is a little random with scheduling. I’m a painting instructor at one of those fancy “drink wine and paint” places. I’ve had the job for about a month and I’ve only taught once. My job depends on classes getting booked and then not getting canceled. Ideally, I’ll make a good impression on some of the people I teach and they’ll start requesting me, and that’ll lead to more teaching opportunities. This would, of course, lead to more money, and that makes everyone happy.
Let’s see..What else is going on? I’m visiting family in less than a month, and that’s always a fun time. Uuuhh…Oh! I’m coloring my hair a fun color again. I’ve had a natural brown for a while but I just want to do something CRAZY again! So, after the help of some of my lovely Twitter friends, I have chosen the color green! I’m actually in the lightening process now, so I’m crazy excited for that.
Well, I can’t remember anything else I needed or wanted to say, so I’ll end this with a page from my comic for your enjoyment. Until next time, you lovely people.
