If you’ve been following my Instagram or Facebook, you’ll notice that I haven’t really been shooting all that much lately.
After we moved out here we kind of got stuck in a bit of a limbo trying to figure out things with my fiance’s job. The hiring process took forever and we couldn’t schedule anything because he would get a call one day and need to go in the next day for training or something else. The one time I actually scheduled anything, he got a call saying he had to go in for a class and to turn in some more paperwork. It was very frustrating, but necessary.
So now that he’s working and our schedule is more reliable, it still limits what we can do. Not only is he working nights, but he works 12hr shifts, 6 days a week. Sunday’s are his only days off, and therefore the only days that I can really do anything. We’re working on figuring out how I can get stuff done on the weekdays while he’s working, but since he has the car it’s proving to be a bit difficult.
On top of our crazy schedule that we’re managing, we have 4 kitties between us and our roommates. And those kitties decided to make friends with fleas…who wouldn’t leave, and apparently find me incredibly tasty. So for the past month or more I’ve had bites all over me and I kind of look like a fucked up connect-the-dots game, lol. And I scratch while I’m asleep, so that’s made everything much worse. And I bruise super easily, so I’ve got tiny bites, sores that have been scratched larger, bruises from scratching…and just a general plague-victim feeling. And I would absolutely hate to make anyone have to edit out all of this craziness, or cover it up with makeup.
After a round of flea treatment failed a month ago, we have finally flea-bombed the apartment and done more flea treatments, and the kitties are acting less angry and itchy, so I think we’re finally evicted the fleas and I should be back to a non-itchy human soon. Hopefully, lol.
I also took a break from the internet even more recently and stopped uploading new photos or anything. I was taken by surprise by the loss of my cousin. Not only was it sudden and unexpected, but I have a really hard time handling loss when I know it’s coming, much less when it’s sudden. I’ve kind of retreated from the world. Taking some time to myself and avoiding life seems to have helped though, and I should be back to my usual updates asap! 🙂
So that’s what’s going on with me. I should be back to shooting regularly in November, and hopefully will be doing more stuff with awesome people when I bring myself to leave my apartment. 😛 (Seriously, someone come kidnap me and take me to the city!)
