Figured I'd better make myself write a new journal entry just to prove I'm still here! (Hahaha.)
Work is slowly plodding along. I've done a couple of tattoos and started a couple more paintings since last month. Still struggling on - the weather has a lot to do with things. It's been snowing today and is forecast to get worse. No doubt it'll wait until Saturday when I have some people booked in as is usually the case. :| (Blank Stare) 
I've befriended a few more local shopkeepers and left business cards strewn about the town. Re-vamped the shop sign after Christmas. Found a great place to buy art materials.

Got a few more people booked in. I've got a baby Groot tattoo and a Bambi tattoo that I'm really looking forward to. Nothing wrong at all with tattooing kids names on wrists all day but the funky geeky tattoos are what really do it for me! =P (Razz) 
So things are relatively ok right now. The studio is slowly picking up even tho it's winter and close to Christmas. My car's still in the garage gathering dust. I'm unsure whether or not it's even fixable or if I'll have to scrap it. (I've only just paid for it and motd it about two weeks ago!). Luckily I have a couple of good friends who drive and are willing to help.
But it's all relative and it's all about attitude. Things aren't really that much dfferent than last week but I do feel happy enough in myself.
I've started doing some meditation of an evening. I've had to quit Jiu Jitsu due to having no transport. I'm missing it. So the meditation is a substitute for now. It's not quite the same but has it's own benefits.

Keeping the wolf from the door for the moment as my dear friend used to say.
:)
I used to think I was pretty unlucky - rolling a double six twice in a row when double six is the ONLY number that you don't want - that sort of thing.

Then I grew up a bit. Started to think about stuff a bit more deeply. I realised things like Luck, Karma, God and Santa are all nice enough ideas but they all rely on a flaw; that any of these forces give a rodents rectum about us individual unimportant insignificant specks of carbon. Reality says that things happen regardless of each of the billions of individuals wishes or preferences. I believe that - well, I tell myself I believe it. But it gets harder and harder to turn a blind eye when day after day another straw is piled onto the already exhausted camel's back!

I get it - it's not a conspiracy. It's just life. It's what you make it, blah blah blah. But if I listed all the bad things that have happened in the last three or four months it'd sound like a Dickens novel! And I'm not focusing purely on the bad stuff. Just went for lunch and walked past the biggest puddle ever and not one of the cars took the opportunity to soak me which would've been easy! But that positive is slightly overshadowed by the negative of me coming into my new studio to find that the roof is leaking and the kitchen is wrecked! Of course it's Saturday so I can't ring the landlord till Monday. And it's entirely plausible that this alternating weather pattern of rain, snow, rain, snow ad infinitum will continue over the weekend.

I keep trying with the pep talks to myself but myself can feel my waning resolve.

Let's see what happens over the coming days.
