Goings on

Well, I didn’t write yesterday. The fact is that my siblings started school, and I was left pretty much alone. It was irritating. I didn’t have another art project to work on, and I spent the day getting nothing done. I was pretty much going crazy. But I calmed down when they got back, and I did a bit of online research about getting jobs or volunteer work. I can’t say I was wholly sucessful in finding out much, but just doing something about it calmed me down quite a bit. I’ve never had a job, and I’m not sure I want one. It’s not urgent that I have one either, I’ve been doing pretty well with scholarships and grants and stuff. But I do need something to keep me occupied.

And then I started reading my friend Sarah’s story, so that I could give her feedback. I don’t think I’m all that good at giving feedback. I’m no writer, as I’ve said before. I’m not the most knowledgable as to how to write a good story, or how to improve things. But maybe I’ll be of some help, right? Certainly more than I would be if I did nothing. The only thing is, it’s on the computer, and I can’t stare at a computer screen too long if I have any care for my sanity. At least this time I’m reading on a laptop. I read one of my Mom’s stories on a desktop computer once and that was annoying.

There are a few other projects I suppose I could involve myself in. But if I found work of some kind, since it would probably be part time anyway, I could fit in my other projects around it. Looking for work is not the sort of thing I’m used to doing, but the sheer boredom not having school or any other outstanding responsibilities might be enough to push me out of my comfort zone. As for my art… I love doing it and all, but I’m still having a hard time figuring out what I’m doing it all for. What exactly am I going to do with all these artworks that I am accumulating?
