Ugh, this is the first time in over a week I've had enough energy to stay up long enough to even type up a new journal entry. I am coming out of one of the worst bouts of illness I've had all year so I'll probably be over it in a few days hopefully. But unfortunately it has ruined everything I had planned art-wise since not much can get done when it's an effort just to get out of bed
What sucks most is missing out on my yearly Halloween submission. I know a lot of people like those and have even told me they look forward to them. But this year mine had to be cut short. I had it started weeks ago, and then it was forced to be left to gather dust while I lay in bed struggling to breathe. It was going to be a real cool one too
Oh well, I'll just have to put it aside for next year. I'm trying to get something "last minute" done now but it still probably won't be finished on time (and afterwards - who cares?) It won't be anything special, but I suppose I need something
to submit to represent October, I don't want an empty space when I do my summary of art meme at the end of the year
I kinda blame my new job for my frequent flu's I've been getting. Seems odd that a guy like me - who normally gets sick once every 2 years, suddenly started working and has now had it 3 times in 5 months. Guess that's what happens when you have to clean up after people every shift. You pick up more than their glasses and plates
I don't hate the job though, I just will be really pissed if after this I just repeat the process again
and have to go through a fourth flu before Christmas. Getting sick every other month is torture, I thought I was supposed to build up an immunity after repeat exposures?
