Britt's in-between jobs float fund: $72.34
Commissions are open and will be indefinitely. So to start this journal off I want to say thanks to everyone that has commissioned me in the past, it just felt good to know I was at a place that my work was actually wanted. So for that little ego boost I can say nothing more meaningful than thank you so much.
Now the real reason for this journal is to say i'm in a position I need to start making a little money to put back. I had a really bad night at work the other day and now it's pretty much to the point of where I need to find other employment or i'm literally going to snap on someone or walk out. All of which I do not want to do. I definitely don't want to put my co-workers in a bad position with a vacant spot as we are stretched pretty thin (staff wise) as it is. Issues like this are among the other 5 million things that are constantly complained about and nothing ever gets done or resolved. EDIT: these commissions are building a nest egg for me to use for when I finally quit this job. A little something to float on for a bit. When I reach that goal amount i'll finally leave and get the best night of sleep in my life.
I hate that 10+ years of employment have to end like this but there just comes a point where you realize that you aren't the person you were before you started the job. I know sometimes I feel like i'd rather quit even if it meant losing everything to my name because i'd be so much happier, broke as hell but happy.
So now that my little pity party is over i'm indefinitely open for commissions, i'm not going to beg or say please commission me, but if you happen to run across someone who's looking for commissions, i'd be grateful for anything, even if it's just a name drop.
