Where have I been?
If you've noticed a lack of activity from me, well, I've been lurking all along.
A month ago, I quit my volunteer job at the local humane society. A lot of little things were piling up that led to it. I didn't get hired when they held open interviews. The managers were not respecting me or my experience. What really set me off was one day when I went to the medical room to talk to the vet about a rabbit with eye discharge that I was worried about. The vet and I had a nice chat and she told me she was glad to see me there. I followed her while she gathered her supplies. Then, one of the managers happened to walk by, and put her cell phone down to tell me that volunteers aren't allowed in the back.
Considering I've always gone to the back every single day I went there (and no doubt that lady has seen me in the back many times), this was news to me.
So, I went back out to the front lobby, threw away the drawing I left on the front desk, threw away my log hours sheet, and texted my Mom to tell her I was fed up.
I've been feeling a little depressed ever since. I have severe anxiety and chronic back pain that makes it difficult for me to find a job, so volunteering was "work" to me.
I've been holed up in my room, tending to back and toe pain, taking care of my sugar babies, reading comics, and getting lost in my 3DS. There's a pile of unfinished art work underneath this desk--unfinished activist art, unfinished Attack on Titan fan art, and many ideas floating around in my head...I just uploaded a commission that I finished a couple weeks ago (the client now owns it)--I had agreed to do it long before this crap happened.
Well, I'll just have to pick myself up again. Are you concerned about the Ebola emergency in West Africa?
