the other day at work I was bathing a really old dog, a 17 year old cairn terrier.  When I was drying him off, he rolled on his side and stiffened up, and started jerking around! In the first second before he started shaking i thought maybe he had died or something, but he was having a seizure!  Donna helped me hold him down, and we thought he wasn't breathing. After about a minute he came out of it, and seemed ok, though he was really disoriented looking, and had blood and foaming saliva coming out of his mouth. I'd never seen a seizure before, from an animal or a person, it was scary! I felt like I didn't know what to do, I just couldn't think of anything, even though I know you're at least supposed to keep them from swallowing their own tongue, and I feel bad that I didn't take action other than calling Donna for help.

Comix class is over, so now I get a break from the day job/homework combo shit. If I could choose one to continue, however, I'd choose comics class, which I guess is obvious.

James scanned my final pages for me, since they're too big for my scanner at home. I'll post them up soon, I'm just lazy nowadays about doing internet stuff. I'm not really sure where to post besides here, since the website I had before is down and I can't get anything to work. I'm gonna get a new domain sometime soon, now that I'm making the moneys to pay for it.

craig's coming over tomorrow, can't wait

good lord, yesterday was the best day ever

I went to Craig's house in West Lafayette, an hour and a half drive
then we had lunch, and I ate some coffee beans.

every time at work I have to brush a dog, and then comb it's face because they have long beards and stuff I always think of this

comic class wonders, petco faggotry [Jun. 11th, 2007|07:36 pm]
So for the final comic project I chose to do the Phoebe comic. I was up all night last night drawing it, so I'm ready to fall asleep.  Since all the small publishers I wanted to submit to don't actually take unsolicited submissions, I'm going to be submitting it to Mad Magazine (James' idea), and even if they don't accept the story I've drawn, James says they might like my style and humor and timing. I feel pretty good about how it's turned out so far, but I still have to ink it. Not that I dread it or anything. I love inking!

Times at Petco are ok, I've started to like having hours by myself as I'm getting used to the job, but there are times that are just crapalicious, like finding out that I actually have half-hour lunch breaks instead of a "lunch hour" like I was told in the beginning. Also I guess it's better when I'm not by myself for an entire day, because it does get boring when there are no dogs to bathe, and other bathers with more experience can help me out. I'm trying to get more days off, and I'm hearing that there's a new girl who might be hired soon. I really hope she doesn't change her mind, we really need people and I'm ready for a bit of time off.

Ugh, I'm sick of thinking about work.

James made a good point today when he said the world needs more good comics and stories than people stuck in shitty jobs just cause they gotta pay the rent. I'm so glad to have him as a teacher, he's my favorite out of all the teachers I've had at Herron.

really sleepy, bed timez now

what the fuuuuck why [Jun. 8th, 2007|06:42 am]
urggh For the entire week I was supposed to be working on this bboy comic I haven't been able to focus, and now that it's due in 5 hours I only have 2 panels drawn. I feel like I really don't want to do it, probably because I don't know what the fuck I want to do with it after these four pages and whatever ideas I do have suck

uuaghg so fucking frustrating

edit: okay now I've got three hours
and I've only got 3 more panels drawn. I really wish I had just gone with the Pheobe thing from be beginning, but I was confused about what we were doing with these and went with the bboy comic idea gsdhkagldghsd

so basically I'm feeling like a screw up

oh man I sure recalled some awesome memories today

Craig: (driving) is it nap time yet?
Me: no, not unless you wanna be napping in the hospital
Me: or in burning car wreckage
Craig: people in burning cars is hilarious to you?
Me: NO just the burning vehicle thing brought back a memory from a couple years ago
Me: While on a trip to Michigan, we smelled fried potatoes
Me: a few seconds later we passed a flaming Lays truck FUCKING ENGULFED IN FLAMES LIKE FWOOOSH FIIIIIRE
Me: yes way


I had coffee with Craig this morning, which led to an awesome day at work, with some awesome dogs. I really like Weimaraners, cause they're friendly, but not bombarding and like JUMP THE FUCK ON YOU which doesn't usually bother me but still they are nice dogs to bathe, and not stress inducing at all THEY R SO QT

anyway so Craig came over and sat around trying to nap on the floor while I watched some old videos Tim made
I wanted to show him Mind Game but my computer wouldn't fucking let me so I gave up on that

uh so yeah
I really like being around Craig and talking to him, everything feels really natural.
but I feel as if saying I "like" him does it enough justice, neither does trying to describe it in anyway. uwaaaa

feeling wierd today

so hey stuff's improved a huge deal since the last entry, I've got fewer hours and some days off, so there's time for work. Also I learned after completing paperwork for commission plus my hourly wage I can make about $100 on a busy day with lots of customers, which is really fuckin awesome because that's how much money I would make in a week at Kroger last year. STILL I gotsta focus hard on this bboy comic final project

oh yeah I'll post some of the comics I drew for the class as soon as I get them scanned, since I've gotta find a bigger scanner to fit these pages

Too bad I'm not getting any sleep for what reason I don't know

[Current Mood |determinedwas depressed, now determined]

petco is giving me way more than part-time hours, right when I'm in the middle of a fucking summer class. A class that is very important to me, seeing as it's comics class. The final project is coming up (roughs are due monday) and we're making these specifically to submit to publishing companies. This class is really awesome because James is teaching us about getting work out there, and making it as a comic illustrator rather than just OH HAY GUYS WE JUST DRAW COMIX which isn't bad on it's own I just mean that it's awesomer than awesome. For the project I'm gonna do the breakdancer comic, since that's the one I keep thinking about lately.

Anyway, the problem with petco is that they aren't even trying to hire new people (I'm the only new person and people have already been leaving) and I screwed myself by saying I'd be available for a lot of hours, and i guess the manager took it that I could work all those hours. NO I MEANT SHE COULD PICK SOME REASONABLE TIMES IN THOSE TIME SLOTS GODDAMMIT, and now all the hours other people aren't working are getting dumped on me. I don't have time anymore to work on comic homework, and when I told James about this he said I shouldn't let a stupid little summer job like this ruin my chance at something really awesome like actually getting to do what I fucking want to do JESUS CHRIIIIIIST THIS MAKES ME SO ANGRY but it also is making me depressed, because I have no time to see Craig, and it's not like he lives just around the corner and can come over whenever he's gotta drive an hour to Westfield so we can spend some quality time together. That's just as important to me as the comic deal, because I really really like Craig. REALLY REALLY REALLY VERY MUCH. I feel like if I let this job bullshit trample all over me I'm gonna regret it for the rest of my life. BUT I'm really bad at confronting bosses and stuff, but I feel like deep down what I really want is to just quit and I don't really give a shit if I get yelled at and my parents take away my insurance (the job is to pay for insurance, thanks Tim for adding a fifth car to our driveway unnecessarily >:T ). I don't hate the job, well, half the time I hate it half the time I like it, but THIS GETTING SCREWED OVER THING IS JUST GDSGSDGHH FUCK YOU PETCO. LIANA IS TAKING CHARGE OF HER LIFE

Anyway I'm about to call Donna the grooming manager to talk about this soon.

Oh yeah on a happy note I saw Rebecca for the first time in a month, and we talked about money bullshit, and we agree that it is just that: bullshit.

Rebecca: god thinking about money just makes me hate life
me: Screw money! Let's just be bums or hippies or something.

later I told Craig about this
me: living in cardboard boxes sounds pretty appealing to me
Craig: actually I'm thinking of living in the forest
me: woah yeah that's actually way better

I could draw comics about forest life on tree bark and I can trade them for stuff

EDIT: okay so I called Donna and we're gonna talk about this schedule shit tomorrow morning since we'll be in together at work. I told her about the serious exploding of my head from trying to do homework and 8 hours of work every day, and she sounded understanding, at least acknowledging that summer classes cram everying the fuck into 6 or 7 weeks, and I'm feeling a bit more hopeful about the situation

So I've got a job now, as a Groomer's Assistant, I'll be bathing dogs. I'll get payed less than at Kroger, but the job will suck a lot less so that's good enough for me.

My grandpa emailed me these photos, they're of a bird caught stealing quarters from a machine at a car wash

also, I'm really getting the hang of this comix class, liking it more and more, despite the fact that I don't like having homework in the summer, but it's comic drawing homework so it's still good.
