It's too damn hot. If it's not one thing it's another. Trying to get things done but with just one hand is pretty much difficult. Even though I am a lefty, I use my right hand more than my left. So when it becomes so muggy and hot my right hand just stops being useful. Which is very frustrating. I can't cook b/c I either can't hold the pot and stir it, or I can't hold the cookie sheet long enough to toss it into the oven. Frustrating when it comes to painting, can't hold the paint pot in my right, so I tried to use the table as my base and almost knocked the paints off onto the floor. It's like having a wacky wavy inflatable arm. Since I couldn't paint I tried to hold the cross stitch hoop, yeah that lasted about four seconds. Seriously, I hate tendentious. The doc did warn me that it would only get worse as I grew older and no amount of physical therapy would help in the long run. Even though I still do all the little work outs, it helps ease the pain, but not all the time. Like this past week. :grump:

So besides all that I have tried to give my knowledge a boost, and I have yet to hear back from them. Which is kinda upsetting. It always brings me back to this cycle of what the? You need money to go to college ---> You need good job to support yourself and pay for college ---> you need certs/degrees to get the good job ---> back to start. Yeah there is financial aid out there, but not everyone qualifies for it. Esp when you don't have job, back to the cycle. Yeah I even tried co-signers. No luck. Even if I get a job at McDonalds I do not think I will get enough to live on, and go back to college, unless I can get FA. I really need that FA to get there. I know there are lots of ways to get FA I tried a good chunk of them. The others I can try for are pretty much out in left field and will need a snowball chance in hell to work. But I will try them. Finger crossed, let's hope I can get something. I need these certs so I can get a good job where I am needed.

Mood: :worry: and :grump:
Playing: Saints Row the Third and Fourth
Listening to: Nothing b/c it's so brutal
Reading: Eye of the World by Robert Jordan the first book in the Wheel of Time series still b/c everyone has to talk to me when ever I am reading it. Doesn't matter who, or how, it's every damn time. I get two sentences in then BAM! Suddenly I am visible to all.

I am a Nerd/Geek and a huge gamer. I love most things that are sci-fi, fantasy and fiction. I am pretty old, and married. Slightly on the oddball/crazy side, but I am never boring. I tend to be very much a birdbrain when it comes to crafts and art. Working on one thing, something else will pop into my head forcing me to stop and go do that other thing or I will go insane. I used to make rich and interesting worlds, characters (the good, the bad) for my hubby to use in our D&D campaigns. Though we stopped playing long ago, I have been trying to write a little about the adventures before they completely leave my head, making room for newer things. Still need to edit and work on those. I work pretty hard on concepts but for what ever reason when I work on them the ideas fall apart and are either forgotten or they stumble out as a giant steaming pile and I am at a lost on how to get it right like it was in my head. As hairbrained as I am, I do manage to once in a while pull off some amazing stuff. But you'll have to stick around to see it when it happens.

How else would I get to see the TW you will stitch some day :) and YW! Sanzo was always a fav of mine :) BTW where did you find that dragon cross stitch you just finished? Most of the craft stores in my area have wolves, cats, prayers, people but no fantasy anything any more. It's sad times.
