blah and yay

Today hasn’t been the best of days. I worked 10-5. The good things about this is that I get a half hour lunch break. The bad is that I’m standing and walking for 6.5 hours. Even though I had the past three days off, it felt to my body like I had just worked 8 days in a row. I’m just exhausted and sore. I was exhausted and sore when I went to work. I don’t know why. I didn’t do much that was strenuous the past few days but my body hurt and was tired all 3 days. I know why I’m sleepy tired (as opposed to just physical tired). I’m not used to getting up at 9 am. I usually go to bed at 2 and get up at 11.
My head hurts. As in I have a headache hurt and as in a big heavy candle fell on my head at work hurt. At least the headache is on the opposite side of my head than where the candle hit me. I was not pleased with the candle incident. I was putting a candleabra back on a high shelf that a customer didn’t want. It has three candles sitting on top of it. I was trying to get it back on the shelf with the candles still sitting on it because I’m too short to stick them back on. The candleabra tilted and the middle biggest candle flew down and the edge of the candle hit my forehead right near the hairline on the left side. Really, I never imagined a candle could be that painful. So now I have a nice lump and bruise there and it hurts when I move my left eyebrow.
My last day of my Theory and History class at AIU is tomorrow. I have to have my final assignments in by 1 am Sunday. I have one mostly done but I have to do a 2-3 page critique of a piece of artwork. And I’m tired and in pain and whiny and don’t feel like doing it. Odd how I have no trouble concentrating to write this entry but the thought of concentrating to write that makes me want to run screaming from my computer.
There was one bright spot to the day. I came home and found a package from AIU outside my door. I wasn’t expecting it yet. It contained two very nifty things. The Adobe Illustrator CS WOW! book and the Adobe Creative Suite Premium (Photoshop, Illustrator, GoLive, InDesign, and Acrobat). It retails for $1229. I know that technically I’m paying for it through my tuition but it’s still kind of like getting it free. I can’t wait for this class to be over. I’ve learned things through it, but I want to design things not write papers. I know you need to know the basics of design before you can create designs, but I feel like with my years of art classes that it’s something I instintively know how to do. I guess not everyone has that though.
