Okay, so it turned out that I lied about starting to upload my project pieces last week. Technically. I did intend to, but with friends arriving, and leaving, and leaving for extended periods of time, and other commitments, I didn't really feel like it was a good time. Also, I got offered the opportunity to work in a different town for 5 days this week, so it seemed like a bad idea to start uploading when I've got 5 solid days where I can't make any progress at all. Considering I'm intending to upload on a daily basis, and have set up a buffer to make things easier, I don't want to increase the pressure by taking away a chunk of the buffer. So next week is the new goal for a start date.
Back to work, I'm not exactly excited about this. The shifts are twelve hours, I'll be staying at a hotel, I'm not entirely sure what I'll be doing, and I only have one person from our store with me. If it's just a 12 hour version of what I usually do, I'm fairly certain I'm going to be driven crazy by boredom, and I'm going to be slightly on edge because it's a different shop and a different team. The management from our shop has told me I'll have fun - I'm imagining they mean I'll have fun living in a hotel for a week. Still, I'm grateful for the opportunity because I could do with the extra pay. And at least I'm not in this alone.
Aaaaaaaaaaand that's it for this journal. Hope to be back soon with some more promising news on the art front. Thanks for reading
