Ok, so here’s the overdue monthly journal update, for friends, pals, acquaintances, and anyone else who cares.
First off, the good bits: I once again plan on going to Texas Furry Fiesta and Furry Weekend Atlanta this year; TFF for its entirety, and still on the bench on the timeframe for FWA. More on those will come later.
Now, the not so good: this job of mine has taken its toll on me. For months, the shop’s been operating as a skeleton crew of only two general service people, myself included. I’m gone from the house for literally half the day the majority of the time. When I do get the days off, I blow it sleeping most of the time. Needless to say, it’s also affecting my social life as well. I don’t talk a whole lot, and I have little to talk about, even amongst some friends, and now I fear I may be drifting away due to lack of communication. Upon retrospect, I wonder if I’m as valued by them as I do them, or if I’m just someone you know. I don’t know if I’ve said it before, but just in case I didn’t, just because I’m not saying anything does not mean I’m not listening. It’s hard not to, not with all these recent political events that have transpired, and the critical responses to them. I don’t have all the answers, but I’m certain of one thing: we face a very uncertain future, and the terrifying kind in that. But, united by our common bonds, we must stand to tackle it head-on. As a famous movie character once said, “We cannot let fear divide us.”
