Life is messing with my plans again

Hey all!

I'll return with comics on January 18th.
Explanation below, for those of you who would like one.

It's been a while since I last updated here, mostly because I haven't had much to share, and it feels silly to be excusing my absence every time I do write something.
That said 2012 came with a few changes for me, regarding life, work and most of everything else.

Most notably work; I have a part-time job in order to pay rent and such (rather than fretting over this every month due to working as a freelance artist), and this job is in the process of moving.
Which is a complete and utter chaos.
How chaotic?
As I came to work the first day of the year (well, technically the second) it turns out they don't have any work for me. At all. So I start looking for work, thinking it would have been nice of them to tell me this a little sooner. Then they suddenly do have work for me; the (new) boss has transferred me to the other shop (without notifying me). No big deal, except nobody told me this until the very day I was supposed to be there. I feel they could at least tell me what is going on. Or send me my workhours a day before I'm supposed to start? Maybe I'm high maintenance, but knowing I'm supposed to be there would make it a bit easier to turn up for work on time.
That, and I suddenly have to travel 1,5 hours by bus each way. That makes 3 hours in total. Which steals a lot of time I'd rather be doing something else.
So I've started looking for work elsewhere, and am even considering buying a car in order to cut down on travel-time. Whichever happens first, I suppose.
This steals a lot of time from comics and art, but hopefully things will be sorted out pretty soon. And I've managed to cramp in a few hours of sketching, so I feel confident that I'll be able to return to updating this Wednesday.
Other than that there really isn't much to tell.

Hope you are all well and that 2012 will be a great year for all of you!

Hugs!

Poor Elise. I hope that your job situation gets less hectic! The last two summers I had to drive 1.5 hours each direction to take summer school classes. It was not very fun.

It is really quite rude that they did not tell you that they had transferred you to another store. I would shake my fist angrily at them while not there. :shakefish:
Thank you!
Ouch, that sounds like no fun at all. :/
Hopefully something will turn up for me though, I'll just keep looking:)

I did quite a bit of shaking my fist when I got back home, I will admit... :P

I hope that you have an easier time getting a new job than I will once I graduate. It is no wonder sooo many people are going to Grad school in this country, there are no damned jobs.

Fist shaking is always good for stress. :D
