I have had to resist the urge to curl up in a ball and go to sleep for about every second of the past few days. Before I moved to Austin I kept telling people that I would have a day job again because when I don't I tend to spiral into pits of depression when I hole up in my studio alone for too many days on end and I need to force myself to get out and do things. But then I got here and had a chance to really focus on Manic Trout and taking it to the next level. Which is awesome...until I start to spiral. Ugh. I have a ton to do though to get ready for the holiday season...do you realize how close Christmas is??? Yeah, we won't go there right now.
Right now I am focusing on getting inventory to at least a normal level and making sure all my ducks are in a row. And Advertising. I hate creating Ads. In the past, I have had others do a few for me...but I have a bit of an advertising background and the skills to do it...and all the stuff is right in front of me...so I'm doing it. But I don't like it. This may be some of the spiral inducing matter in my life right now. Must. Resist. Curling. Into. Ball.
On a random side note...I have the heat on, in TEXAS! It feels so indulgent! It also was about 55 in my apartment when I got up this morning and that is no bueno! Its kind of amusing how heat works here in the south...it comes out of the ceiling vents...which are put there to make cooling the place down a quick task, but let me tell you, I am so happy that I ignored the scoffs and brought my ll bean sheep skin "wicked good slippers" with me, because the bare floors are FREEZING here when its cold (ahem, under 65 out)! Brrrrrrr.
