Starting again

Thank you to everyone for all their kindness these last months. I know I haven't been a very good blog friend lately but it's nice to know that a few of you are still with me.

I thought I'd give a little update on things in my life that I haven't posted about the last few months.
First off, I had another computer melt down. My computer stopped working. I'm working on getting it repaired and working on a borrowed computer right now. We'll see how that works out.
Last week I met with writing group. We usually meet the first Sunday of the month but I had to postpone due to everything going and my group members were awesome enough to reschedule. I have been taking parts of my short story, Worth Something, which is my story about the value of money and what it means to different people.
Jenni and I went to see RENT again. She got me tickets for Christmas and it was a nice chance to get away from the chaos. I got to see Jenni and my favorite musical. It's a great message of measuring your life in love and living like every moment is your last. It was what I needed.
Work has been madness. I'm really unhappy there. Combine that with a recent viewing of RENT and I can say that all I've wanted to do is quit my job and write. I haven't yet but I am looking into options. I'm not sure how much longer my employment will last, whether it's by my choice or someone else's.
That's about it. I've listed some books, watched some movies, read some books, even wrote some stuff (most of it journal entries). So I have a lot to post about. And I will. If I ever want to get out of this mess and doing what makes me happy, I have to start working hard.

Hang in there, Ashley. That sucks about the computer and the job and the everything else. I was so hoping you were happy at the job.

We had another big cut at work. I'm still employed, but I was laid off for the last two weeks and start back on night shift tomorrow night. When I filed my unemployment claim for the last two weeks this morning, I got a message saying I have to contact them before they can process my claim. And apparently it's impossible to get through to them. So that money is tied up until I can straighten out whatever is wrong.

Your needing some time off is completely understandable.

I swear there must be something in the air. I've know several people who have had computer meltdowns lately. I hope yours is up and running again soon.

If you hate your job (and can't do the writing thing full-time) I do hope you find another job that you can at least tolerate.
