The Socially Awkward Writer Seeks Employment

Current Time- 12:02 a.m.

Current Mood- Relatively calm, while mildly anxious

Caffeine Level- Moderately low, after a wonderful high.

Words Written in the Past 48 Hours- Around 3,000 at the very least.

Life, it seems, really is filled with bends and twists. My better half is no longer employed, therefore I am venturing out into the world to find a means of acquiring funds. The difficulty with this journey is that I am wholeheartedly a socially awkward nerd. Does social anxiety count as a marketable skill? One could wish so, I suppose.

Just as with writing and blogging, I somehow must convince these managers that I am worth their time and fit to become their employee. While I’m altogether a fairly likable person as a whole, add in social anxiety and a whole host of other mental problems stemming from life events and uncontrollable DNA, and here I am wondering myself if I am legitimately the person for the job. Nevertheless, as a Slytherin, I hope I am able to carefully conceal all of this to reenter the grueling world that is retail. Wish me luck!

Of Time Well Spent

Current time: 12:30 a.m. (Unfortunately, not five o’clock somewhere anymore.)

Current Mood: Sleepy

Caffeine Level: Pleasantly Decreasing

Words Written In Past 48 hours: At least 5,000

Today, my 1 year old, who is nearly two, went to bed early. For anyone who simply does not understand the struggle of a toddler who does not sleep, here is a little glimpse:

I Have a Dream sleep

No sleep

Tiny Human

When said tiny human does happen to fall asleep it feels like this:

So Much Win

So, with that being said, tonight felt like I was Dobby, who had just been given a sock. (Also, my home may look as if there is not a house elf living here anymore, but that is entirely beside the point.) Because of this, I have been able to watch two whole episodes of Once Upon A Time and knit my first attempt at a Slytherin beanie! This may not seem like much, but for someone who always feels busy every hour of the day, this is a huge accomplishment.

With Christmas coming closer, I am beginning the task of making all of the gifts homemade this year, as I had previously decided I would. Although it will take longer, knitting and such is quite therapeutic for me. It helps me channel my pottery demolishing urges upon becoming extremely ticked off. Really, I’m not only doing this for me, but for all the pottery that was not made simply to be broken. It’s a win-win. 🙂

Ps. Happy International Coffee Day!
