Blogging is hard

Yello everybody!  le sigh i know, i have not been here in quite some time, my apologies.  Blogging is hard, or rather blogging isn’t hard, but like everything, it requires energy and that most precious of resources, – time.  I always seem to feel like i have no time or i feel like i’m super exhausted and all i want to do is sit and watch tv, or play vid games.  getting old sucks, but i haven’t forgotten this and its purpose, even  if it’s just personal for me atm. 

i’m getting ready to go on work travel, and i am shockingly nervous.  Normally i love to travel, especially for work, but right now i am so anxious.  At first i thought this feeling was because i felt some terrible kind of foreboding, like people who get on doomed flights, or die in unexplained ways when they go out of town.  I’ve been listening to a lot of armchair detective podcasts lately so that didn’t seem so out of order, fear off something happening when i’m out of town is new for me.  Then i thought about it, i love flying i love going to new places, maybe i just didn’t want to leave my dog and boyfriend, but i am only going to be gone a week, Monday to friday, it shouldn’t be so bad, i’ve done this before and i didn’t feel panicky, no attacks.  Even when he was going through really rough patches with drinking and the dog was sick, i didn’t have any worries. I felt ok leaving them excited to come back.  I knew we would talk every day and they would be ok.  But right now?  I feel a panic attack coming on. But why?

i worked late friday night and i figured it out: it’s work.  i’m overwhelmed and stuff is piling up on my desk.  I have never NEVER gone away from my day job leaving anything undone and this is the first time i wasn’t able to clear my desk before leaving for a week.  Don’t get me wrong when i’m at work, i work, and work HARD, but… It’s actually terrifying.  I don’t want to get in trouble for not finishing anything, i don’t want anything to expire on my desk.  i’m panicking because i’m afraid of losing my job, and i have never been this far behind in my life.  I worked late on friday night and early on Saturday and i wasn’t even able to make a dent in my pile of paperwork.  This thing is literally a foot high.  I’ve asked for help but none seems coming, and i’m just exhausted.  There is no patience right now and it’s taking its toll on me.  I want to travel, but i feel like i’m hurting myself by doing so.  I hope there is some understanding there.  The problem is everything starts with me.  I hope they realize what it means to have me agree to go out of town, even for a week.  I just need some reassurances right now.  ugh, i’m trying to relax and enjoy my weekend but i just want to get this crap moving and off my desk.  And enjoy my trip.  No anxiety, just work and exploring Texas. This is the worst time to be doing this.  The planning/timing of this definitely leaves something to be desired.  Let’s hope everything works out ok.

On a lighter note, this gives me a chance to dump out all of the pictures on my phone so i can take new pictures of all the sights!  i’m am kind of excited about that.  Look 2014 Sundance~!

My poor babies, maybe the caps will get revenge for you.  

Clearly Sundance doesn’t care :p

How long has it been?

Too long, but i really haven’t had anything to say.  Blogging has always been hard for me because there’s always something else i’d rather be doing.  It was the same for keeping a diary, a live journal, a myspace and a facebook page.  Sometimes i just don’t feel that interesting or don’t feel like i have that much to say.  sometimes i get on to vent, and then feel guilty about what i say.   Then i get on to spread messages, but not many people look for me here. i get on to not hide, but because i don’t post often and don’t promote not many people come here.  it’s ok though.  it’s like an experiment you know? i’m still making progress on my list.  

i don’t know if i mentioned but Onyx now Raven didn’t make it.  😦 i’m sorry for the emo news to come out right now.  i guess until i’m better at this sometimes i’ll just have to train of thought.  Anyway here are some pictures of Awesomecon 2014

And i just realized i can change the text color… >.<

Verizon Executive: We’re Still Waiting For More Info On Yahoo Breach — Consumerist

Yahoo’s data breach affecting the accounts of half a billion customers will probably have an effect on its pending acquisition by Verizon, and that effect will be a “material” one that will affect how much Verizon pays. A Verizon executive explained at a technology conference today that the company still needs more information about the…
