It's been a while...
Well, as far as art goes, I've been very crafty these last few months. I made a few string lamps, bows/ribbon hair accessories, spoon roses, and more. I have recently started getting back into charcoal drawing. I think I like it more than painting but not sure. My grandma is wanting me to paint her a picture of something to put above a set of doors but I am still waiting for more details.
Work. Well, still the same unfortunately. I have applied at one place since finishing my latest resume, not including registering on a job finding site. No progress so far. So for now, I'm still working at McDonald's.
Relationship. Shelton and I are doing fine. Sometimes, I feel like we don't see each other enough due to his school and our opposite work schedules. It gets rough. I recently starting making payments towards my debt from the wreck I had a while back and with all this money I owe for that, school, and whatever else, I'm stressing over whether or not we should get married this next year. I have yet to buy him a ring (though we've looked at plenty) and I can't even wear mine yet (despite talking about getting it re-sized every payday). It's just stressful. I'm trying not to worry about it because it's not for another year but it's difficult when I'm sitting at home alone most the time. He's been talking a lot about wanting to move to Seattle or Portland in the next five or so years. I think I would like to live in one of those places but they are so far away! So I guess you could say we are doing fine but I feel as if I'm wallowing in a puddle of stress.
I miss hanging out with my old friends. The friends Shelton and I have right now, they're great, but I don't ever get to see them so I feel distant. Other than work, I feel like I have no social life. I miss being able to goof off and forget all the seriousness of life and just relax for a few hours. The closest thing to hanging out I've had in the last few weeks is going with a coworker/friend to get a loan and then getting dropped off at my house. We had good conversations and it was fun even if it was for a little while, I just wish I could have more moments like that with people than to not have any at all. I don't have a car, (working on getting my license reinstated as well), no longer have school, and I'm stuck in the house all day or I'm stuck at work with people I'm sick of seeing. lol In all seriousness, I am just unsure where my life is going even though I know what I want out of it. The path to my goals is rough and it doesn't seem to be getting easier but I guess that's just how life is.
Anyways, a few days ago, Shelton and I made our first homemade cookies and they were delicious! XD This weather is awful. I can't wait for the gloomy stuff to be gone. I think I'm going to go ahead and doze off. Shelton gets off in an hour and I have to be back in at 7am. *sigh* When he gets here, I have to go to the store to get Easter stuff for work. UGH!
