i put up all the christmas decorations but tbh i'm just not feeling the holiday cheer this year. for one thing there have been nothing but problems to face lately and life's mostly been all work and little pleasure. i could really do with a short vacation but ya know, not so simple. another thing i'm feeling down about tho is this is the 3rd year i will be missing out on holiday matsuri due to work
i know missing a convention doesn't sound like a big deal but for me it is and here's why: there are a few amazing people that i never really get to see or spend time with that i absolutely adore and am so happy whenever i do get to see them and spend time with them, unfortunately the only time this usually happens is at cons, and all of these people are going to be at holiday matsuri, and we were really looking forward to seeing each other. plus, my cosplay senpai that i look up to is going to be at holiday matsuri so i was hoping to meet her for the first time also. oh well.... i could really try to push to get at least that saturday off of work, however, i don't believe my work has hired anyone to fill in for me should i need time off or call in sick. that's why i haven't tried asking. i'm also working every single holiday - i worked thanksgiving, going to be working christmas eve, christmas, new years eve, all without holiday pay >< sorry to complain so much...i am thankful to have a job and a roof over my head! i just get frustrated sometimes like anyone would. i also keep getting terrible migraines lately and no otc medicine seems to help with them anymore.
