Hahahaha! It seems I make a habit of not being overly active when I'm in a crunch. I have been working on new products, but I haven't had time to take pictures of them. I have LOZ 2-way pins, Pokeball 2-way pins, new animal cookie necklaces and new ice cream necklaces. I've just been so tired to do anything else...
You see, since I started working at my new job (which is amazing by the way), I have gradually become more and more tired each day. It doesn't matter if I sleep 5 hours or 10 hours a night, I still wake up dead tired and it affects my day up until I go back to bed at night. I'm very sluggish, and it has affected my health. My nails have become extremely brittle, my hair is starting to break more frequently, and my skin is starting to dry out terribly. Not only that, but my appetite has changed too. I'm hungry for lots of carbs. Ramen, bagels, cereal, pasta, rice... it used to be sweet stuff like candy or bananas, but now it's just plain carbs. I go to the doctors this Friday to find out what I have, or what might be affecting me. When I read up on my symptoms, I was getting things like hypothyroidism, anemia, sleep disorders and so on. It's really freaking me out, so I went ahead and scheduled an appointment. My husband and I had been talking also about my work environment. The water heater is right next to the front desk at my work, and my boss confessed that carbon monoxide leaks from the heater, and I should just 'open windows and turn on the fan so it can escape.' Now, this made me question why the girl before me was fired. She was fired because she was caught sleeping two days in a row. The other employees say that she used to be energetic and active, but slowly became more sluggish as she continued working there. This brings up another factor... if it is carbon monoxide poisoning, (and yes, I'm going to make them test for that), then I will either have to quit my amazing job in which I love, or my boss will have to figure out a way to fix the leak in the building which will cost him lots of money, and that will make me feel really bad. It will have to be done of course, but I'll still feel bad that I was the one to point out the problem.
But that's pretty much what has been going on lately. That's why you haven't seen too much art from me lately. I've been spending my time trying to gain energy, mostly crafting with clay, and watching Japanese and Korean dramas. By the way, the Chinese version of What Women Want is amazing. It's on Netflix if you're curious, and I found it way better than the American version. If you have time, I highly suggest checking it out. C:
Oh, and thank you to all of my new watchers for following me! I've noticed that I have gained a huge handful within the last two days. Is my art being featured somewhere, or am I just getting more fans for the heck of it? Either way, it's a huge ego boost and it makes me want to work even harder on my artwork. Love you all!
