Sucked. Hands down 95% pure SUCKED.
Begining of the year Cory got fired, Crystal took his place which lead to my hours at work getting cut, what i'm pretty sure were anxiety attacks, and this huge patch of scarred up skin on my drawing hand from constantly washing my hands when she was store manager. It was like some kind of weird fear response, because i pretty much spent the time she was there terrified. the complete polar opposite of "good Times'. Like i don't have enough mental scars from BK. Anyway she left and we got Kayla. But since the BK is handling Obamacare by the "cutting everyone's hours route" money is still tight. Wanna help with that
? I seriously have $6 until my next paycheck. I'll post art for sale here sometime this week because I'm trying to raise a lot of money before i go home for Christmas (at least $300, so a lot).
There were a few brief moments of happy; Furry Weekend Atlanta. It was Fan-Fooking-Tastic! Despite the subject matter of most of my art, I've NEVER been to a Furrycon. If they're all like FWA I need to go to more of them. Burger King [my job =/] got a new manager who I loved and really hit it off with. Kayla was AWESOME! She said i reminded her of Kimiya Dawson! And we laughed constantly and life was pretty good. Otakon was also Awesome on the social front! which is weird since I hate Otakon, but we actually did pretty well selling this year too. I think what made Otakon fun this year is because 1) I went to the Hard Rock Cafe with the Old Anime con Circle. 2) And a friend who i was sure i wasn't going to see in person again since the DFC isn't doing Ohio Con anymore also showed up! And random Dad helped me drag the DFC luggage to the hotel [thanks good Samaritan] and an older fan wearing Homestuck Horns randomly gave me like $2 so i could get more icecream, and the line for non prereg was SHORT. So good Otakon, who knew?! I brilliantly pulled off my Amazon UK heist where i bought a card deck and mailed it to my friend JJ who lives in the UK, she sent it to me via a mutual acquaintance, thus it was cheaper than any price online. Found the Czech art supply pencils i wanted in Richmond! Thought I was going to have to order it from the Czech republic. Heck I even bought a scanner.
...And then August hit and we couldn't seem to hire enough people, and a lot of the ones we hired kind of suck at their job. And Kayla crashed the ever loving crap out of her car, she may not be coming back. She's so cool though too. And I can't forget The Burger King Race Riot of 2013 (no. matter. how. hard. I. try.) where ethnic slurs were hurled, a brawl semi broke out, and someone threw a cup of water/Sprite on me. That pretty much altered my mood and perception of Life, the world and everything in between and generally lead to me i'd say kind of depressed.
Seriously go here and do the thing. I am determined to make it work.
