I temp. It’s a little sucky, because I never really know when I’m going to be working, or where, or if there’s going to some rude guy or someone who smells really bad, or whatnot. But it’s work and it’s money in an otherwise lousy economy. And with Christmas on the way, I’m taking nearly anything I can get.
So I worked at a hospice for a week. Data entry, (I’m not medically inclined… at all), and it wasn’t so bad. The receptionist was a little on the harsh and brittle side, but the nurses and the social workers were hilarious to eavesdrop on, which I managed to do quite a bit. And someone commented that I looked an awful lot like Taylor Swift, which I took as a compliment because I think she looks adorable.
All in all, not a bad week. Got money, paid my bills, bought all my Christmas presents, and I even had enough left over to finally buy Bloodraven by P.L. Nunn (who is God).
The down side is that all my plans for writing were put on the wayside. I did manage to get my Gundam Wing story finished, which I’ll be posting shortly. It’ll be friends locked because of adult situations (read: sex!), but I’ll also put it up on my FF account and my homepage tomorrow, so no worries. I’m also trying to finish up Chuck Made Them Do It, for all you crazy fans out there. I’ll post that here as soon as it’s done as well.
That’s it. Just checking in. Big post tomorrow–hopefully some art to go with it. I’m excited.
