Today was ok. We stayed home and did homework. Also played a lot of video games. Ate mac and cheese and vegetarian chicken nuggets. I'm not ready for Monday. At work, I just cant stop thinking about school. I wanted to get a start on the final project but the data I wanted to use just doesnt exist in any useable format. It is frustrating.

I am looking forward to a short thanksgiving work week, but the downside is that I have a ton of work to do on the new website. I cannot wait until March when the site is live and I get to see it in action for the first time and everyone will say nice things to me like "wow, what a great design Amelia" "That new site looks really sharp" "Sales have boosted so much, we cant believe it, must be that new design"... however, in the meantime its just me at my desk for 8 hours straight dragging image elements into a photoshop doc and carefully arranging it to match the wireframes. It's exhausting.

I'm also kind of annoyed that Sam has so much anxiety about visiting the post office. So much that I'll have to come home early to mail the Christmas package. Apparently one time some postal worker scared him. :(

It's so late, but I really dont want to go to sleep because then Monday comes and I have to sit in that stupid desk. I do have a laptop, but i'd rather have double desktop to give me like a solid 50 inches of screen. LOL

Yesterday was fun. We had friendsgiving and watched Harry Potter 6 with them all. Ate chocolate. Good chocolate from aldi.

So I played no mans sky today. I'm actually really close to leveling out - on more than half my abilities I've maxed out the stars they give out. I really hope that they update that game soon. I hear they have a lot of neat stuff planned for it.

Sam moved his desk into the living room. it's kind of nice to have him in here with me. before he used to go into the other room and it made me feel really lonely.

Sam bought me Agricola. :D I'm super excited about it. He played it with me too. The easy version. It's amazing. I started reading rules for the more difficult versions too. If you're reading this Sam, thanks again. I love it.

I played bass today. That's twice this week. It's nice. It's good for Sam to hear me too. Sometimes I think he forgets that I had this alternate future lined up for me. I had so much privilege growing up. I took private piano, oboe, bass, and composition lessons for years. I was going to be this great musician and composer. I was ready to major in Music. Wow.

It's so ironic because I really despise other "music major" types. I didn't fit in with the crowd, ultimately I picked my college major because I chose the people that I fit in with the most. That ended up being design. And there were the cute guys in the class and all the free pizza. Well it doesn't matter any more. What's important is that those personalities transferred into co-workers that are pretty neat. Sometimes they're a little too design-geeky for me, but most days they're just nice people. Good grief, I'm not sure what I'd be doing with a music major right now. I suppose I'd be signing contracts with ad agencies similar to design contracts. Huh.

Sometimes it seems like most every path in life leads back to the great pit of consumerism.

Today I had a hard time waking up. It's really cold outside and well, it's just more comfortable to stay in bed. I did get up. I went to work. Most of the day I worked on spotlight graphics, but toward the end of the day I created a wireframe for an infographic. It's a painful process. I don't really like it. My supervisor made a few suggestions. Sometimes that sort of thing makes me feel belittled, but today it was ok. It helps if I'm not emotionally invested in the project. What I should really do is make some art. Especially since I'm not really allowed to do that sort of thing at work. Today I took a bunch of screenshots of Photoshop glitches. Maybe I'll use those to form some sort of art series.

By the time I got home, I had a headache so I rested. After dinner, I started working on my sewing project. I'm making a dress. The material is tricky since it's so stretchy. I finally finished pinning and cutting the fabric. I'm afraid to start the sewing process.
