General Crap

I’m feeling the need to write something, although I don’t really have a topic I want to rant about tonight.

Was pretty productive with the job search today. Applied for three jobs, and have a fourth in the works.

Worked on the redesign of my drum corps’ website. Am satisfied with the first comp for now. Have some feedback from the Executive Director for some tweaks, which I will apply later this week.

Made some banana-coconut (a.k.a. Banana Cream Pie) candles tonight. At this point, I’m trying to whittle down my supply of old, half-used scents so I can justify buying more new ones. Still undecided about the holiday push for candle sales. It would really necessitate a website overhaul to work the way I want.

Am planning to do NaNoWriMo this year, even if I don’t have a job by November. I’ll have to split up my time between writing and job-searching (and working on the corps’ website), but I think I can do it. I’ve never won NaNo before (i.e. written 50,000 words in 30 days), and it’s about time I did. I have a premise and a few characters’ subplots. They’ll all come together at the end of my dystopian future society tale. Somehow.

Trying to get my sleep schedule back on track. Getting up before noon is an accomplishment, as is getting to bed before 2am. I’d sleep ten to twelve hours a night if I let myself, and I really don’t think that’s healthy.

Overall, I’m doing OK. Gained a little weight, am sometimes bored or depressed, but am trying to keep myself upbeat. I can pay bills. I’m relatively healthy. I’ve had a couple job interviews. I’m OK.
