Good afternoon friends. It might not look like it but I am very happy to see you for coffee, I’m just tired today. The coffee should help and I’ll do my best not to bore you but I may have to keep the visit short. I am in desperate need of a nap.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that the biggest thing going on right now is my girlfriend has to leave for Texas tomorrow for a week-long work thing. Something about training on a special program she uses for work, I don’t know, it sounds boring. She leave tomorrow afternoon and won’t be back until Friday night. I hate when she leaves.
We’ve been together so long and we spend so much time together that being away from her causes me considerable anxiety and sadness. I know I will be ok, and I know it’s only a week, but still, I will miss her very, very much.
If we were having coffee I would ask you if you’ve ever heard me mention my fear of driving? I have been working for a long time to get over it and I have made a lot of progress. This week I have decided that instead of taking the bus or relying on friends I am going to drive myself wherever I need to go while she is gone.
This is a big step and to be honest, even though I feel down on myself about the whole situation, I am proud of how far I have come.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I did take a few days off of work this week though. I plan to use the time to work on an art project. I mentioned yesterday that I had been inspired by the artist Andrew Kass and thought I might spend some time working on a few collages of my own.
I have wanted to for a long time but I was a bit afraid that it was a stupid hobby and not real art. I don’t care though, for some reason I just love the idea of mixing and matching these pre-made pieces into something new. I think I’ll add to them too, some pen or paint or something. I have ideas.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that of course in addition to all that I will be spending more time writing too. I want to get a ahead on my posting schedule and I have a couple of post ideas that need more research and I also want to work on pieces to submit for inclusion in a few zines, and a few essays for a personal project of my own.
I took off two days and I was already off on another so I only have to work two days this week. I hope I can get a lot done.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I had better go. I have decided against the nap and instead I plan on heading to the bookstore, I want to pick up Saga, Volume 5 today. I hope you all had a good week, update me in the comments if you can, I’d love to hear from you.
I hope you have a good rest of your weekend too and don’t worry, the coffee is on me :)
