anyway, that's kind of why i'm on the fence about continuing. craftwise, i'm not up too much. a little knitting, a little zoom loom weaving. this weekend i went to joann's fabric and bought some fabric to make skirts and a dress for my niece (you know the kind, with the smocking at the bust that you just have to seam up the side. bubblegum pink with hello kitty at the hem.)
my life isn't very exciting these days. i went to NHSW last weekend, but because google told me that i should go to the wrong place (fuck you google maps) a drive that should have taken me an hour and a half ended up taking 3 hours - heh. i ended up leaving the festival empty handed because now it's safe to say that i own all of the wools and yarns.
workwise i'm winding down. i have 2.5 months left at my current job. i have a lot of ends to tie up, but nothing new has landed on my desk, so things are generally slow. my guess is that when the people who have taken my existence for granted (not in a bad way) find out that i'm moving on, there will be a fury of "omg what will we do now?" my layoff is not a cost saving cut where my job will be done from now on by some poor bastard that already has too much to do, so i'm not bitter. the project is ending. my funding is over (yeah fuckers -- the federal government does create jobs -- you fucking conservative fucks). federal government cuts (fuck you congress and your fucking sequester) means that finding another job may take a little longer than i had previously hoped. oh well. i can use the time off. (i am bitter about conservative fuckers though - just fyi).
the thing is, i'll need to be very structured with that time off. my last day at work is july 31. j and i are going to france in august. so i've decided to not seriously look for anything until labor day. thing is a proper job search can take a long time. so i'd really like to use this time wisely. i have general plans. but what i've learned over the years is that general plans don't work for me. i used to think it was because i was lazy, which i didn't care for. but lately i've been thinking that it's something much more concrete and possibly fixable. and that's something i hope to work on with my therapist.
so that's briefly what's going on with me. see? boring. not at all fun.
by the way, it's still macro may.
