the only thing i really don't like about the books is that they have this way of taking over your whole life and it becomes hard to focus on anything else. that coupled with the relative "dark" nature of the books.. and life can get a bit overwhelming and depressing while you're reading them.. but somehow you can't stop.
and sad to say, but having these books to read gives me a reason to look forward to going to work because on my 4 closing shifts, life is pretty quiet in the school. only 754 pages to go..
i'm still struggling to find time and motivation to work on my art. i've been so tired lately. but it probably has to do with the sore throat and allergies i was dealing with this week. i took some benadryl the other night, and normally drowsiness-inducing medication has little affect on me.. not this time. i went to bed at 10 and woke up at 11:30, still feeling like i could sleep for a few more hours. alas, work had to be done.
i'm also still wondering what to do with my life. do i buy a car? a house? start an actual business? or just keep doing what i'm doing, save up some money and go traveling again. i realize that settling down is inevitable at some point in life.. but i still feel like i have a lot of ground to cover before i'm ready to do that. i don't know. perhaps i need to stop thinking about it so much, and just take each day as it comes. much easier said than done. and i welcome suggestions.. :)
