( Bigger. )
The weather has been absolutely wretched all week. The sun shines for about 3 hours in the morning, until around noon and then the thunder, lighting, wind, and rain rolls in. If it doesn't end up raining all into the night, then it might stop for a little while around 5:00pm or so if we're lucky.
Due to this horrendous weather, my internet and phone line has been knocked out. Which is why I haven't been able to comment or reply for the last couple of days. I don't see a reason why our phone should be knocked out under these conditions if the cable itself is still working with no problems. I'll definitely be hassling the parentals to call tomorrow to find out a reason behind this. And if we're lucky they'll either come out and fix it or...not. Considering the issues we've had with them these past few months.
I spent Friday with Robert; we ran around for a bit in the nasty weather to a couple of places. We tried to find some things at the thrift store to no avail. In the end he ended up making me a vest
(on the fly, no pattern or anything) for my costume instead. Heh. He also wants to make my dress for the Bon Voyage ball, but we need to come up with ideas and/or find some old beaded dress to deconstruct. They had quite a few at GoodWill but I was trying not to be concerned with that at the moment. My jacket is pretty much done. He just had to fit it one last time and rip some seams to put the facing in. After that we just need to add the front buttons and we will be done! The last couple of things I need for my Sirius costume will be a pair of dirty brown shoes and a purple coloured button down and I will be done. (Possibly some accessories too...) I already have a pair of black pin-striped pants that I'll wear and just hope they aren't too girly looking. Heh. Whee. I'm excited! :DD
I don't really know what else to say. I haven't done much of anything except attempt to tan a bit this past week when it actually wasn't raining. I may have succeeded twice so far. I've had to pick my brother up from school nearly every day since the end of May. I haven't really been able to go out and shoot recently because of the rain and schedules are just so conflicting and the lack of money doesn't help things along. *sigh*
I've been in a creative funk for a while now and personal life hasn't been helping. And I haven't talked about it because I'm trying to block the fact that these things are actually happening. On another note, I'm seriously considering moving out to LA with Robert by the end of the year or at least by next spring. Not for school or anything, but just to get the hell out of here. I can't stand being stuck in this city anymore. There's absolutely nothing here for me anymore. I need a serious change in my life / environment to help push me a long and to take a stand in the real world. It's just a scary thing and I worry a lot about everything.
I don't know really. I just need to get myself together again. I need to just to *do* instead of waiting for some kind of sign or whatever. Oh a happy? note, I'm going see Carrie Underwood Tuesday night. Lmao. I honestly don't even know why I said I wanted to go. I only know that one song of her's about jacking her boyfriend's car up. *shrug* I'll make it enjoyable, if not a humorous experience. :P
* This is the kind of music you end up listening to when all of your best friends are gay. Haha.
