STILL ALIVE

General life update; I got a job as a logger three weeks ago, and so far so good :3 I'm a little bit sore and it's hard work, but I'm surviving and soon I'll be paid. The hours aren't exactly consistent, I'll work 6 hours one day, then 9 the next. Usually it's around 8 hours a day though.
Probably not my ideal job, but I get money... so yeah. I probably wont work this long term though. We'll see how it goes.

So these last 3 weeks I've done nothing art-wise. I'm hoping to get something accomplished soon before Tuesday (but you know me, don't hold your breath x3) I haven't had a lot of time to comment on stuff here on the site either so I apologize for seeming inactive.

I'm a bit happier overall, because I am employed I feel useful and a contributing member of society. It's been good for my depression :D HAPPY FACE!

Glad to see you're doing well. :3 If it's any plus other than the pay, the manual labour is a good workout provided you do things right (i.e. not overexerting yourself, doing too heavy lifts, etc.). I miss talking to ya, though the lack of communications is partially my fault. When WLM was ditched in favour of Skype after M$ bought it, I pretty much stopped using Pidgin seeing as over 90% of my contacts were on WLM/MSN. :c I'm not sure I sent you a notice about it, but if you've got Skype and want to keep talking as we used to, mine's on my IB profile.

*hugs!* I'm terribly glad it's helping with your depression too! Feeling worthless is awful, and I'm happy to hear you feel you're useful. <3 It does wonders for the soul!

The work is back-breaking sometimes, but usually I can handle it ok :)

I haven't chatted with anyone online in... I don't know now, forever basically. All of my msn contacts either stopped talking to me, or just disappeared, not signing on anymore. I got tired of sitting there with no one to talk to, so I stopped getting on as well. Since then I've been fearful to get back into it. It's easier to open up to people online then in person and I think I did it too much. I got too attached and then people started disappearing. It hurt I guess. Also I've never used skype to chat before, and that scares me too.
On top of that, my availability for online things is sporadic and infrequent at best, with not always a good connection. I miss talking to you too, but I will not be able to do so most to all the time because of my schedule and work tiring me out all the time (plus the 9 hour difference between us doesn't help either). Maybe I'm just being a baby, or a coward I dunno.
I've toyed with the idea of getting skype, but in my current circumstances, it's not likely to happen anytime soon. IF I do though, I'll send ya note or somethin. :3
Having a job has definitely helped me. Things could be worse.
Thank you for your support. Without it, I might've folded a long time ago. *hugs* <3

I've know the pain of people just disappearing too. Makes you think all the wrong thoughts about yourself. x.x Skype was pretty scary to me too at first. I mostly use it for IMs, and voice chats still make me nervous, or at least until I really get into the conversation. It's still scary though, save for the IMs I'm used to.

You're neither baby nor coward, silly. When you get around to it, I'll still be there to chat with ya. Just take the time you need. |3

And of course I support you! You were one of the first to support me way back when I was an insecure little nobody, and you're my oldest friend who'll still talk to me. <3 I've got your back until the day you shoo me away.

And you keep on drawing, mister! Never give up on that~! |3

I don't wanna shoo you away, you're too awesome *hug*
