ok, so here I am in a new library in the new town where i live, now. Just got a new library card and then discovered this library doesn’t even require a library card in order to use the computer. wha?
so how is life? nobody blogs anymore and now that is REALLY true. the world has become so very strange now with social media. it’s beyond.
so. the thing is this. I am a creative. This is true whether you care to believe this about me or not, that is of no consequence. I know it to be the truth about ME. Working constantly at a job where I don’t really want to be has drained so much of the energy out of me that my creative self has little left in the way of time or motivation to work the way I would like. So, I moved out of my overly expensive apartment, slashing my living cost overhead by 2/3rds. Meaning, i pay a third of what I did just to have a place to sleep and cook and chill.
This has been a herculean effort as far as downsizing goes, I had no help really with the move and I had to process thru all my crap on my own. I am by no means finished. I feel as though a great burden has been lifted. I can breathe. I DO NOT want to commute to work every day and I was really getting burned out on the substitute teaching job. It’s not that I hate it, it’s just that I hate HAVING to do it, as though I have no choice, just to survive. No thank you. I need some breathing room. I need to figure out what else I can do with my time here on this crazy planet.
Wow, this library is way bigger than I had pictured it would be.
this pic is from yesterday when I went to the theater to see Lady Bird. I haven’t gone to the theater by myself in aaaaaaages. It was just fine and dandy. Reclining fancy seats and I got the kids meal popcorn snack. It is amazing to actually have a little extra money to spend… for the past year or two, I never spent any money because it was all going to food, rent and bills. So lame.
and now I have a little more cash, well it’s just in time for christmas. For my daughter, I bought tickets for us to go see a Nutcracker Ballet this coming Saturday. I also got her some adorable fuzzy slippers and a necklace. For my son and his fam, I sent them a ton of great DVDs which I know they will enjoy. For my Mom & Stepdad I will probably get them some chocolates or nuts or a combo of both because, honestly, they have everything and can also afford to get whatever they don’t have…. so, consumables are where it’s at.
I hope you have enjoyed this long-overdue update of the bloggidy bloo. I may just be blogging more often now, because it is so much more enjoyable when I can use a real keyboard. I am a very fast word processor/typist.
Happy Holidays, y’all!
