Long overdue update

I didn't forget I had an LJ.  I do spend most of my time on tumblr though.  I do think it's funny that people keep posting spam even though I thought I made it clear before that I screen my comments.

Anyway, still unemployed, still looking for work, and still taking commissions.  I heard about a job fair for students and alumni of certain school from my college, so I'm looking into the employers there.  While I'm hoping that the grad schools that I want to apply to will potentially waive my application fee, I'll still need to be able to relocate if I get in.  My initial plan was to work for a year and then go to school; but I hadn't expected it to take half that time to find a job in the first place.  My sister graduated in 2010 and it took her forever to get what she was trying to do.  As in she just now is doing it. So yeah, that doesn't give me a lot of confidence. 

Meanwhile, I for the first time ever, screwed up shipping on some sales I did a while back and just now have the money to reship the correct item.  (>.>)  I don't think it would have been so bad if I hadn't messed up both of the orders that went out that day.  So I'll be mailing that out this week if they let me in the car. (I'm sick again.  Like, I think I must be a magnet for bacteria or something.  
(TT v TT)  

Um, let's see.
Well, I did AWA in September.  It didn't go as well as I'd hoped especially after factoring in giving my mom gas money to get there and drive herself back home, food, and the table fee that I have to pay back to the person I shared with.  It's like I did negative dollars once you factor all of that in.  So I don't know what to do.  I'm thinking that I may just focus on online art sales for a while or something.  I mean there are some galleries that I've been looking at, but I don't know if I want to go that route just yet since I'm not doing well on the convention circuit.  But we'll see how things go.
