images-84It’s a sure sign that you are unhappy with your job when you dread going to work on Monday. So what does it mean when you are sitting on your couch watching your favorite TV show and the moment you see a work email pop into your inbox, you immediately want to vomit.

I’m serious. I really want to vomit right now. Then I want to curl up into the fetal position and cry. I really wish I could just quit.

I have a long list of all of the reasons why I cannot quit today, followed by another long list as to why I can, but it’s not an easy decision. Quitting without another job lined up is highly risky for me and I don’t have anyone to fall back on for help or support.

Thankfully, I have a Plan A, but it’s moving slower than a snail caught in an ice puddle in January. And circumstances are such that any control on this pace is completely out of my hands.

As for Plan B… it’s in the works too. I just need a good break to happen for me… and soon.

Nothing Else Matters

I am a big fan of the HBO show The Leftovers.

In the season finale, during a particularly poignant moment in the show (no spoilers here), the music caught my attention. It was a beautiful and unexpected version of Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters by Apocalyptica.

Check it out…

The Boulder Has Been Lifted

Now that I’m free, I can actually have some time to kick back, relax and not worry about waking up early and getting an assignment down on time. All of course which means I can work on the site, and get some stuff done that I’ve been longing to.

To start the break off, I’ve already got some stuff that I was able to do here and there this month. As promised in the last blog, the photoshop tutorial for the ‘Charcoal Sketch’ has been completed. As well as a brush set, 3 textures and 1 icon texture set and I’ve revamped so many pages I can’t count on one hand. I re-did the about page and plan on to edit a lot of others.

  • Charcoal Sketching Tutorial
  • 1 Brush Set
  • 3 Textures
  • 1 Icon Texture Set
  • Several pages revamped!

Of course a lot more will be coming, and I’m still working on that surprise website which will be up hopefully the first week of January. If I work extra hard, it will be open on New Years! I even have a contest in mind, but I need to sort everything first.
