Red is fine! He's still limping a bit but he's using the wounded leg and is now a happy back yard dog.

Selphie is fine! The base of her tail was swollen and the vet said I caught it in time before it could become a hot spot. She either was stung or bitten by something. She was prescribed some things to get her back to 100% but she's good about taking medication. Or rather, she's suspicious when she gets treats laced with pills but she never manages to, like, not eat the pill, haha.

My progress in FFXV has slowed because I'm, like, obsessed with watercolors right now. I don't know what is happening but I want to paint so many things and so that's what I'm doing. I have another piece in the works. I'm really enjoying this. *___* I blame the materials. I bought a hardbound Strathmore watercolor journal a few months ago and am finally using it and because it's the fanciest journal I own, everything in it needs to be my Very Best Work...but somehow be done Very Quickly, lmao. It'll die down soon but I want to ride the high while it's here.

We fired the bather at work and hired someone I'd worked with at a previous job (when I worked at the vet hospital) so that's pretty great! But it seems like we've been so busy and there's been so much work to do and I'm just so tired. ;3;

Wow, okay, so bullet points will work for the kind of day I had:

  • Woke up with a headache

  • Medicated Red, let him out

  • Get to work, realize the dog bather is definitely fired, realize I gotta take her place, realize we're horribly overbooked with a ton of big (upwards of 70 lbs) dogs

  • Headache gets worse

  • Lunch! Coworker/Boss asks if I'm okay, I tell her not really, I'm trying not to throw up, she says (while getting her greasy, greasy food) that yeah, she already dry heaved once because she's the type of person who's incapable of not making everything about her

  • Coworker/Boss tells me she'll "give me a break" and bath ONE of the THREE Boxer dogs if I deshed the Rottweiler

  • Rottweiller proves to be super aggressive!

  • I end up in the bathroom being sick and then decide to go home

And then I came home and passed out, the end! :D :D :'D So glad it's Saturday, my weekend starts NOW.

Also, Selphie has an appointment on Monday, she's been really tender around the base of her tail and crying about it and I just can't let this go on. For those of you who are new, this is Selphie, my precious little pumpkin-headed dog:

I got her when she was about 5 weeks old and she's around 4 years old now. ;3; I love her.

The Civil War event for Avengers Academy ended and I got Bucky! And I only spent a little money! /o\ I'm so weak. I also got Madame Hydra, who I'm largely ambivalent about but I lovelovelove her voice so! Eh. The academy looks so bare without Hydra members wandering around but I like that I can go back to focusing on the regular missions.

I turned in my resignation letter in at vet hospital job. My boss and I spoke and had a pretty long heart to heart, which was nice. She was very understanding about my reasoning (it's better if I'm home in the evening because that's when my parents start getting tired and I need to be home with them; medical stuff freaks me out pretty badly now). I initially told her that I would work out a two weeks notice but she told me that wouldn't be necessary and told me I could come back whenever I wanted. Which was also very nice.

Today my workload is: working at regular job from 9am-6pm, going to my boss's house and taking care of her pets (she's out of town), and then going to my sister's shop and deep cleaning everything. It's a long day. I also have to work tomorrow. (。•́︿•̀。)

But! I have Friday off, so that's a thing right? Right. Happy thoughts. ;3;

Still thinking about participating in spook_me. I want to write a haunted house story, set in a cold wilderness! Thanks for the inspiration, Until Dawn. XD I just need a fandom that would work well for that. I could possibly make MCU work and have Steve, Natasha, and Sam looking for Bucky and find themselves trapped in a house for a night or so. :\a idk though. Writing a bunch of teenagers would probably be easier for that kind of setting.

Despite being super hot and sunshiney, today feels like autumn. It's making me feel nostalgic (like everything else, haha).

My first two days of class were okay. I've a feeling I'm going to adore geology and the professor who teaches it; she's enthusiastic and wonderfully nerdy. History is going to be a struggle. Not the subject, because I love ancient world history, but the professor is going to be a problem. Fortunately I'm the type of student who can completely ignore the professor if I need to. Metal etching is intimidating and painting 3 is going to be fiiiiine. First day of art crit is Monday and first day of geo lab is Tuesday. We'll see how it goes. It was really nice to see my school friends again and experiencing people enthused about seeing me was a nice thing. XD

Last night, Kiddo and I lay in bed and watched Spirited Away. My tv is quite small (a 20 inch) so I pulled the stand until it was touching the foot of the bed at one corner, which made the space feel smaller. That, plus the window unit running, a small lamp on, and the dogs asleep in their crates made the whole thing very cozy. ;3;

Work continues to be very stressful, mainly because the woman hired to be the new office manager apparently doesn't know what the hell she's doing, even after a month of training. She had a panic attack last Thursday when I can in and I try to be sympathetic but it's difficult when she's already cried on my shoulder three times. This may not be the place for her. My boss has also decided to throw more responsibilities my way, which was pretty stupid since she knows classes have started and I'm going to be working much less. It's so annoying.

I'm hoping that come Monday, everything settles down. I'll be off work which will be nice, so hopefully when I get home from school I'll be able to sit down and finish the things I meant to get done before classes started, lmao whoops.

WELP. I signed up for [community profile] iddyiddybangbang. 5k doesn't sound so bad and when else can I write non-traditional a/b/o Steve/Bucky with bewildered recognitions, possessive and comforting sex, Hydra being dicks, and Steve and Bucky going on a heat-induced killing spree! Wooo! XD Looking at the optional prompts, my idea is pretty tame in comparison! \o/ If anyone else is planning to sign up, we should probably having writing sprints or something. Google hangouts and Gchat allow for group convos, right?

I've been drawing so much lately, it's been great. I received some really harsh criticism from an anon over at [community profile] fandomsecrets and while I didn't appreciate the way they said it, there was a lot of truth in what they were saying. I'm going to have to work on branching out on subject matter, or at least include more backgrounds and work in more color theory.

Working on my last commission, but I think I'm going to keep commissions open indefinitely. I highly doubt I'll get inundated with requests so I'll be able to keep up. \o/

I've hit that headspace where I just don't give a shit about anything to do with work right now. It's too stressful. It's mostly because half the staff quit and now we're dealing with newbies and it's not their faults (everyone has to start somewhere!) but it's still pushed me into not caring. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Also, I should be getting the key for my second job this weekend. Wooooooo. ;;;
