crazy week at work

So I'm Going to Egypt

Hey I know things have been a bit quiet on this blog as of late and there are two reasons for this.  My work week has been absolutely crazy as of late and I’ve been working a lot of over time. On top of that I’ve been gearing up to take this awesome two week trip to Egypt. The end result being, I haven’t had much time for art or video games. 

I’m not giving up on this blog or my comic by any means but needless to say I won’t be around for the next few weeks. I look forward to getting back into the swing of things when I get back.  Until then I hope you guys don’t mind waiting a bit.

Prompt: Jonathan, Steve, and Nancy plan on going to the movies to see the newest thriller/horror movie, but when the night comes she has to cancel because she got grounded for failing a test. So jonathan and steve end up going together and it's the first time they really get to bond alone. Let's just say tensions build while theyre in the theatre, and they end up making out when they leave the movies....... I hope that made sense, You're way better at writing this stuff than I am :)

( Sorry this took so long, it’s been a crazy week with lots of school work… This is real cute! )

“She… cancelled?” Jonathan murmurs from his spot in the doorway, he had his keys in his hand and his jacket on. When he had answered the door he’d looked like an excited kid, smiling brightly, but it had soon faded at Steve’s words. He had come to deliver the news as Nancy herself couldn’t. A grounding for a failing test grade was the source of her absence, which was complete bullshit… Steve’s dad usually just called him a disappointment, slapped him upside the head and told him to get out of his sight.

“Yeah, man… She was real excited too,” He offers with a small frown, Jonathan looks down at his feet and Steve doesn’t think he’s ever looked more like a kicked puppy in that moment. It was part of his charm, really, what made Steve like him. He held a sort of innocence, something pure and naïve, and yet he was broken and jagged as well. He was in all senses, one of those mysterious but emotionally frail protagonists of a teenaged drama.

I’m going to be your wedding planner. You need one desperately. Like in the movies with the headsets and black pantsuits. Yeah, wow. I would actually totally crush that look.

one day, after training, shiro fell asleep on a chair because he was exhausted and Pidge and Hunk decided to braid his hair

Here’s my baby Jumin in all his helping glory <3 I love this boy more than I can say <3No real mention of anything nsfw but there will most likely be a swear or two thrown around J

My sincerest apologies for the delay in posting this- I’m afraid with the holiday season work has me working a crazy number of shifts (in the next two weeks I’m working 12 days… so yeah… not much time to write) so my writing will slow down for the time being sorry :(

I work part-time at this grocery store and my job is Courtesy Clerk, but after a few weeks the head of the front area or whatever likes us to go to Cashier Training so we can help out the regular cashiers when things get crazy. So I went and the week after I started working as back-up, but one day, this old, balding guy came into my line and I did the whole ‘Hi, how are you?’ customer service thing and rang up his items, and when I looked up, with a smile mind you, I asked ‘Would you like a bag?’ Little did I know, I had just opened a vortex straight to hell.

He only had like three items and at the time we only had large bags, and honestly I’m supposed to be selling re-usuable bags but they’re right next to the register so if someone wants one I usually leave it up to them. So anyway, I ask him 'Would you like a bag?’, and he looks at me and says in the most condescending voice, 'Do you think I want a bag?' 

And I just stand there thinking, 'I don’t know who the fuck you even are, what you like, I shouldn’t have asked, etc. etc.’ but instead I keep the smile and say, 'Well, I’m not really sure, do you need one?’ He then begins to run the whole conversation in circles for five minutes with me trying to get a straight answer out of him because what the fuck? Do you want a bag or not, you asshole? 

'What do you think? Do you think I need a bag? Do you think I want to walk out there, and people are gonna see all my personal items? What if the government is watching?’ Just on, and on, and on, until finally he repeated the first question and I just gently placed his things (a fucking donut, coffee, and something from the deli, some fried pizza sticks, I think, I don’t remember) into the bag and said, “I guess you do need one.“ 

He then has this giant ass smirk on his face and says, "See, was that so hard? I swear, people like you shouldn’t even have jobs, especially a woman. They should just kill people like you. If we were alone right now I swear…” He trails off and I’m just standing there, sick to my stomach and so angry I can feel myself trembling.

But, lo and behold, there were these two aunties (what I call people who are older than me out of respect, it’s a thing in Hawaii lol) behind him watching the whole thing and what kept me from grabbing this guy and slamming his face into the counter were these two ladies heckling the fuck out of him, and calling him a fucking idiot for holding up the line for a stupid question, and what the hell did you say? I could call the police right now, how dare you say that to her, she’s only trying to help you, if I was her I would’ve kicked your ass already,’ and stuff along those lines.

The old guy just scoffed and grabbed his things and left, but after the two aunties just talked to me and made me feel so much better after that whole ordeal, and I’m just glad they were there because I was about two minutes from crying my eyes out. They even bought re-usuable bags and everything. And before they left one of the ladies said, 'If he’s still outside I’m gonna beat his ass for you, you have a great day, girl.’ And I just started happy crying a little after they left because they helped me remember that despite how many shit people there are in the world, there are just as many good people out here too.

SO yeah, that’s the worst customer I’ve ever had paired with some of the best customers I’ve ever had. :D

After a crazy week at work, where I was threatened with lawsuits twice, I really needed a night out. Work went a couple hours past when I expected to leave, then I met up with my friend Tracy to catch up on old times.

After that, I headed to a local Italian restaurant to celebrate my niece’s 14th birthday and my mother’s 75th birthday. Dad is doing great. He’s still sober and drank Martinelli’s cider in a champagne flute. I had to choose between a roll and alcohol, so I went with the carbs.

This is the same restaurant where Nick and I had our first date 32 years ago. The food is mediocre, but the atmosphere is great, and it’s something of a local landmark. I still have ¾ of my meal left to eat today. In one of these photos you can see two of my sisters and my brother-in-law, and one sister is looking at a bottle of wine. The owner had brought it to them to taste, because a customer is breaking into the wine business, and all three of them are in wine sales in one way or another.

It was surprisingly nice to be around my family when no one was drinking too much. In the past, my brother’s T-shirt slogan has generally proven to be true, but he has been drinking way less as well. I think he had about a third of a glass of rosé.

I guess I’m still in the habit of gauging family events by whether drunken disasters occur or not. So last night definitely fits in the win column.

Ok. It’s official. I have gone full Hyperion. Took me waaaaaay too long to do this and I’m so sorry for everything. Gosh what have I done. I kinda have radishezrom and dequidt to thank for for this unhealthy (but enjoyable) Hyperion obsession…. Help. My current wallpaper is the bottom one haha.

Also I’ll most likely upload the individual characters somewhere down the road. When I start organising things. In the meantime, I hope this is pleasing enough. Thanks and have a nice day all!

EDIT: I resized it so I hope it looks less pixelated! Sorry about that guys. :P

Blog Update

First things first: Yes, I am alive.
I had to stop blogging for a while to get my life in order.
I’ve started reading books like crazy (2 a week, hoping to get to 3 soon) and have been working out and eating healthy. Basically just re-orienting myself.
I am going to commit to 10 posts a day minimum because I do not want to make a commitment I cannot keep. This will allow me to be active but it won’t consume a lot of my time.
I will post original content occasionally, and submissions are always welcome :)
I will be starting my own website soon to talk about books and reading strategies, etc. if anyone is into that kind of thing (mostly non-fiction). I will make a post when it is up and running. I am filling up my queue tonight, so expect constant content from here on out. Thanks guys!

HUMP DAY!!

After a crazy work week, and it is only Wednesday, I decided to decompress with a glass of wine, and find my zen! After the mini-meltdown over the past two days ( and I will admit I was in the" WTH puddle" briefly too), something I read from @rainmanjdog resonated and made me sit back and smile.

She commented that based on Cait’s recent tweet fest….Cait is happy. She has engaged more over the past few weeks than we have seen in MONTHS, and has been jubilant. That is worth smiling about.

Then, I read the comments Sam has made about filming S3, and how Cait’s absence has been like “a death in the family”, and how it feels so different without her. You realize that a death in the family is a HUGE HOLE that comes with the deepest anguish that really never gets filled, which says a LOT about his feelings for her. And, it dawned on me that Cait has felt it too. What got lost in the shuffle was her tweet to him when S3 started. Remember when she said she hoped they weren’t missing her much, and left the lips and hearts?? She was missing him too, and expressed it which is very telling for Cait!

The fact that these two very private people have expressed these sentiments publicly, and have since had some genuine fun with fans that we thought we might never see again,has breathed new life into what is good about celebrating this fandom.

So, I have decided to be happy for them, be happy for the absolute jovial banter we have seen from them, and be happy that these two are special to each other in ways that we may never understand or fully know. But I will be happy for the love they are showing us, and each other.

And, I am happy to be here with all of you, and the love I see from some witty, smart, funny and amazing people. So, thank you all for always being the reason a great fandom even exists! Happy Wednesday sweet shipsters!💗💗💗
