It let me get to my knees this time.

Lost one of my jobs this weekend. Well, actually, I lost it on Thursday but no one bothered to tell me. The restaurant went out of business. The incompetent owners are bankrupt, so the paycheck I was supposed to get this weekend, poof, never going to see it. Also never going to be paid for the work I did this pay period.

I only worked weekends there. It wasn't a whole lot of money (to most people), but when you're just scraping by like me, that $200 to $300 a month is a pretty sizable chunk.

So, while I'm still employed almost full-time at my other job, thankfully, things just got pretty sucky for me. Again. On top of that, I'll be missing days from my main job due to extra holiday days. Which, I want to point out, I think is awesome. I love that my main job cares enough about us to get us extra days off around holidays. It's just going to hurt due to losing my second job. I certainly don't blame them at all.

And, if that isn't enough, I'm still sick. I've been sick for over a week now and just can't get back to better. I am slowly getting better, and I'm better than I was, but I still feel like shit. My left ear is still swollen shut inside. I have a cough that won't go away, sinus pressure and massive headaches that come and go. Tired all the time. And, no, I haven't seen a doctor. This is the USA. I can't afford to see a doctor. Anyway, I am getting better. It's just slow.

So, yeah, whee! At least there's Comic Co-- Nope, yet another year I can't go to that. No fun in my future. Can't even afford a ticket to a movie now. Just going to be ramen noodles and bananas until I can make the restaurant money some other way each month.

Trying to look on the bright side: I am still employed. I lost my secondary job, not my primary job. I'll have some days off for awhile until I can find a new weekend job, maybe I can get back into being creative and making money that way.

Anyway, I feel like shit, so even though it's early, I think I'll go to bed.

Sorry to hear that, but at least it wasn't something that you did wrong, it was something that THEY did wrong.
See if you can squeek out an extra doodle or two while you're watching your Dr. Who run, it's an excellent show to let the mind wander and be creative while watching, glad you're having fun catching up with it.
