Nick has definitely been enjoying not having to clock in at a normal job anymore. The only bad side-effect so far has been the weight gain for both of us traveling together! I used to travel with Sifu or Wil and Tyrine and simply wouldn't eat aside from a late breakfast and dinner. On the few trips Nick could go on, he likes three meals a day and snacks because for him, conventions were vacation time away from his job. So we'd traveled together three times in January before both of us realized we're going to Have to get strict on ourselves. We're already making progress. We're both members of the gym now, and we're working together to keep food reasonable. :)

I quit my job a month ago, as well. Veterinary Care Center was just not the same place anymore. They fired M for completely BS reasons, saying that she didn't like the new partner and was setting a bad example for the rest of the staff. In reality, she was the Only one telling us all to stick it through for at least a year to see if things would improve. She and N heard through the grapevine that they were both going to be fired, and Dr. J was overheard saying "...when we get rid of problems 1 and 2..." Sure enough, the next day, I got the call from M that she'd been fired, so I went up to the office, unsure of what my intentions were at the moment, but I needed to pay a bill anyway. The new office manager called me into the office, exclaiming what perfect timing I had. She said she assumed I knew what had happened and "would completely understand if I just didn't want to come in to work again." She went on to tell me that N was quitting upstairs at that moment, so she wouldn't blame me at all if I wanted to go with her. Nicole walked in at that moment to hand over her key, so I told the office manager that I was done, turned to N and asked if she wanted to go to lunch. 13 years. I'm not going to pretend that it didn't hurt, but once all was said and done, I felt the weight drop from my shoulders. I hated it there with only the two doctors that I simply don't trust and everyone so unhappy. I hear that now they are trying to get rid of the holistic doctor that comes in on occassion to treat her patients and send off her tests. Why? Because she won't conform to the money grubbing, cheap ways they want to run things now! She's going to stand firm and practice medicine the way she wants to. It'll all be ok, though. I'll have a job again by July if I want it.

With my new found freedom, I dyed my hair purple! I love it, and may actually keep doing it.

Nick bought me a Samsung Note 10.1 so that I could practice drawing in the hopes that I may at least get good enough to lay down a sketchy foundation for him to improve and paint over. He hates the posing/lines part, but enjoys the coloring. We'll see if that happens or not. Right now, my attempts are pretty hilarious.

I'm trying to get better about drawing a tarot card every day and writing about it. I'm motivated, I just don't do it!

Nothing else of interest for now.

I do have a couple of the purple hair pics on FB! And yes, I'd love to do a reading for you anytime! I've developed a couple of my own spreads that I've only gotten to try out a couple of times! :)
