No more lazy blogging

So I attempted to blog, wrote three posts, and then got lazy. I've decided I don't really care if anyone is listening, but for my own sanity i am going to try posting at least every other day. Even if I only end up posting about my cats or my curtains or something, I am going to do it. I'm coming up on almost a year of unemployment and I spend way too much time being frustrated and confused, so at least this way maybe I will feel like I accomplished something.

I think sometimes we forget that one of the worst parts of being unemployed (aside from having very little income) is that it makes you feel completely worthless. I'm really never bored, I always find a lot to do, things I never had time for before, but no matter what I am doing I always feel like it's not enough. Maybe it's the loss of that job title, or the ability to answer the question "what do you do for a living?" without having to give a long explanation, a defense of exactly what you do with your time. So how do I spend my time? Well, I read other people's blogs a lot, I paint, draw, cook, run errands, dance around, and of course apply for jobs. Anyway, enough talking, here are some pictures, which I guess is the whole point:

Yes, I like both mermaids and astrology, and I am a Capricorn, so yeah I guess that explains this drawing. It might be fun to be a whole series with all the signs of the zodiac.

Maybe this would work for Pisces?

My Fiance asked me, "Is she in a barrel or something?" To this I say, "She is the captain of her own barrel boat, shouldn't we all be?"

So, I am just going to post whatever I draw, or paint, or what comes to mind, I think that's the way to do it, that way I will keep producing instead of trying to make things perfect, which never works anyway.
