where is my mind

293/365



I had a really long day at work. I felt like I was there for an entire day. Time went by so slow today. I'm growing incredibly tired, I think I'm going to have to sleep off this exhaustion. I was debating whether or not I should go out tonight, but then I remember I'm broke as hale. I have a very, very busy day tomorrow as well. I'm going to John's house to paint for some extra cash, and I'm helping my parents move in to their new home. Then of course, is the drum circle. I must be well-rested for that!

I have quite a busy week. My friend's friends are coming into town this week, so we've been planning special things we could do since they're here. Tonight is the Rehab Party at a bar. Tuesday, I want to go to the Shedd Aquarium since it's free tomorrow. Wednesday, I would like to go apple picking at a farm right here in Illinois. Thursday, my gallery! I hope my friends can make it out. It would mean the world to me. Friday, it's off to the Chicago French Market for cheap beers and Belgian Fries, mmm. Also, the full moon drum circle will be in full force, it's the last one of the year! Saturday is the only day I'm unsure of what's going on. Sunday, probably off to visit John's parents and help them paint some windows for some cash.

I'm going to have to start planning my trip to South Carolina and pick up tickets for the OK Go show. Things are looking quite bright these days Glad to be getting out more. I'm also really looking forward to getting out of the city. It's been far too long since I took a nice vacation.

I really love participating in galleries and going to exhibitions and meeting people, but this gallery I'm working on for Monday has me swearing off galleries for good. Just within the past 2 days I spent over $160 dollars, which is practically most of my paycheck.

You begin to lose the whole fun in galleries when you're spending every dime on prints and matting/mounting. I was lucky enough to get my photos mounted for tomorrow, if the girl at the camera store wasn't so kind and wonderful, I might be in a bigger hole than I am in now.

I'm pretty pleased with the quality of the photos, but I don't think I'll be looking forward again to another solo exhibition. At least until I am well off financially. Ow, my pocket hurts.

This morning I went to the beach for about 3 hours. Got some much needed sun that has been lacking a lot lately. Yesterday, after Peace Fest, I ended up hanging out with Meghan as it was her birthday a few days ago. It was fun...interesting, to say the least, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Tonight, I'm going to this big, big party. I guess you could say it's a rave, since I don't know any other types of parties that go until 9am.

I really had planned on going out tonight. Of course, this is my first night in a while where I don't have to go into work the next day...and everyone seems to be busy or out doing something. Why am I not out there?

I got my schedule for next week, and I'm working every single day. Everyday. Monday through Sunday. I can already tell that things probably won't fare over so well. I'm not a happy camper when I don't have at least one day off to sleep in and relax. Apparently they seem to think I don't have a life.

We watched The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus after making dinner. Can I say...that was the most bizarre movie I have seen in a while. I thought Heath Ledger did really well in it, and it was surprise after surprise when it came to the characters. It was eccentric and wild and imaginative. It's probably one of those types of movies where I can only watch it once. It was too much of a mind fuck. The artwork was magnificent though, and very beautiful.

My friend Jayne is supposed to be coming over around 1am. I don't know why. I thought she was going to stay over at CiCi's. So I guess I will have to stay up until then so I don't miss her call. Must stay awake, must stay awake...

I will be taking on a lot more responsibility at work. I'm not used to this. I'm used to going into work and doing my job and leaving at the time I'm asked to leave.

Now, they have me checking expiration dates on every item of the store and stocking the candy shelves at the registers. They want me to take on the candy orders now every week, which I don't know what it entails, but I do know I will have to be extremely thorough.

Apparently, I will be getting trained for this next week. Oh joy.

John's birthday is in 8 days. Still don't know what I'm getting for him or what we will be doing.

Work is making me so lethargic. I work every day and for long hours and it's starting to wear me out.

I'm tired as we speak. And so, goodnight.
