Except, not really. I wouldn't be graduating in December, and this would set me back by a whole semester. I called my mom at her job to ask her what I should do. I expected her to yell at me for being stupid enough to turn down a job in this economy. She didn't. She told me everything that I felt in my heart. "It's not worth it. You can get more money."
My husband felt the same way, but I could tell that he was a little disappointed. I don't blame him. He's been supporting me since I was laid off, and I feel useless. I can't get a job in my field, and neither of my businesses are bringing in a consistent income.
What can I do? The only thing that I've ever been good at was art, and I can't even make a living doing that. That makes me...worthless. I've been working super hard for the past year: going to school full-time, working (below a living wage), and trying to support myself making art and jewelry. Yet, I have nothing to show for it.
Then, the weekend came. On Saturday, not only did we take our daughter Trick or Treating, but we also celebrated the 1st year of our marriage. After weeks of crying myself to sleep, that day made me cheer up a bit.
We also had a chance to pig out on snacks. Mayoree ate a ton of candy. She stayed up until 2 am watching scary movies with us.
So, I have to say that the weekend really improved my mood. I didn't get a chance to work on any art, but I enjoyed myself. I'm still trying to get over the flu, but I'll live. I think that I may have pnemonia....but I don't have the time to go to the doctor. Maybe next week. I just hope my inhaler lasts until then.
BTW, this is me and my husband from our honeymoon last year. We had a TON of fun in Toronto. It's the coolest place on earth.
