The past couple of weeks has been something else.
I'm feeling detached, disorganized.
Machines aren't working effectively. The weather has turned dark and damp. Conversations have been strained.
Changing jobs is like organizing a messy closet - you have to spread the mess over the room before it gets any better. I assume this new day job will be better. I haven't planned anything out, and I don't have a vision of my own future. I'm really just mucking about in a mess until it straightens itself out. Sounds kind of risky, but I have a bit of hope. It's unpleasant to go from one week, where I know exactly what I'm doing and I'm good at it, to the next week where I have no idea what to expect and I don't know where anything is. Everything new starts out this way.
So, this Canada Post lockout is a thing. As someone who has a steady (though modest) income, it's nbd putting my etsy shop into vacation mode. Hopefully my last order has made it out of the country already and all is well! I've yet to scrounge up the bravery to do any livestreaming, but I'm sure it will happen soon. I'm feeling very turtlely right now. In the meantime I might as well work on some planner or journal pages, and try to figure out how Society6 works. Or how my new phone works. Or how anything works. *oldperson*
