mopery with intent

So, hey out there, folks. Long time no post, hey?

Working again. Got a gig doing the 3rd shift at the convenience store down the street. Sadly, it pays less than I was getting on unemployment. Even more sadly, this is the place I worked at doing the exact same thing 23 years ago. How far we've completely failed to come, hey?

Father's Day, innit? Just got an unintentionally depressing email from my mother-in-law, congratulating me on being "the best father I know". I'm just doing my best not to fuck the kid up too badly. I'd try and teach her how to be happy, healthy, and productive, but I'm none of those things.

Never met my dad. Never really felt the urge to try very hard to find him. I dunno, never really missed having one. Weird, that. I seem to have completely missed the "daddy issues" train. Maybe that's why an awful lot of fictional drama doesn't really resonate with me in any noticeable way.

In a really bad headspace lately. Not sure how much of it's the job, the massive financial crunch, or all the other stuff. Haven't made anything or written anything since school got out about a month ago. (Did ok, grade-wise. As in all the studio classes, B in the online Intro Astronomy class. Keep planning to post pics of some the work from my Painting and Digital Photo classes, but I keep planning lots of stuff that doesn't happen.)

So there's my self-pitying bullshit update. How're you folks doing?

::HUGS:: I understand some of what you're going through and I hate like hell that you're having to go through it.

Sounds like you're doing a great job with your daughter. You're teaching her what's really important.

I'd love to see some of your class work if you decide to post.

If you need to talk--get things out of your system--I'm here.

Sending good thoughts and energy and hopes that things improve for you soon.

Thanks, I appreciate that. I'll probably put up a selection of stuff, once I get around to taking pictures of it all. Maybe later this week.
