So um... things are rather hectic lately, hence the lack of Weekly Art uploads or just any art in general. I've been struggling through work since returning from my trip and trying to find a new job. The real kicker was last Saturday (July 2nd) when I was in a car collision while driving out to camp with my family for the 4th of July.

Now, I'm pretty much unhurt. I was sore liked I'd never been in my life for a few days and some things still hurt, but only when I move a certain way. My glasses, which I need for driving or seeing very far, are missing. They flew off my face and were simply not to be found despite all my windows being up. I'm going to hear about my car's repair-ability today, but I'm pretty sure Tobi will never ride again. Here's a few pics from my Tumblr to give you an idea:

There are a few good things about this, however. Most of all, that it isn't my fault. The lady behind me wasn't paying attention to the fact that the car in front of her (me) was rightfully yielded to oncoming traffic. Because of this her insurance has to cover everything from me "just to be safe" trip to the ER to replacing my glasses to getting me some new transportation, and some extra cash that will be a great help in general.

And yes, I still made it out to camp. A cousin who was in town anyway brought me out, and an uncle who lives in town brought me back on Tuesday. I'm kinda stranded up here and away from my apartment and my cat and my job. Thankfully a friend managed to get in my window to feed the cat and grab my mail, and the people I work for are really flexible. A real bummer, however, is that I want to go home to pet my kitty and get my mail. I probably have birthday cards and packages in there, and a friend is supposed to be taking me out to lunch for it.

Ah yes, my birthday is on Monday. I'll be 24, and spending it without my mom for the first time. At the very least I can buy myself a cake even if I'll probably be late getting my gifts and such. I'm not expecting my replacement glasses to be miraculously in by tomorrow, and they're sorta necessary for me to drive my rental car or whatever else back home.

Also, thank God I have a ton of friends and family in the area who have been taking the most amazing care of me.

  1. I wish I could give you a big hug! What a rotten thing to happen. At least it'll get better once the insurance money comes in. Keep us posted!
