persona_system: Walking through the rain. Duty. (S: Duty)
[personal profile] persona_system
... earlier in the week. My boyfriend's system is going through a bit of a tough time right now, and that's been a little emotionally draining for us. (Plus, last week and into this week seemed to be a wank explosion on all the LJ comms. Must be something in the air causing people to go fucking nuts.) Needless to say, we have a very limited number of spoons set aside for dealing with people and they got used up pretty quick.

This weekend at work didn't help, either. Fucking miserable. Record setting snowfall in Dallas, and we had to be outside working the day after. Needless to say, I don't believe we even made booth rent. In fact, I think it was the single worst month we've ever done at McKinney. The reasons are myriad, but I think McKinney is dying as a market. I'm not sure if we're going to go next month. I might insist just because March is generally such a good month for us at both McKinney and Bonham. After that, we'll probably drop it. We estimated we made about 10K at McKinney last year and I'm not sure if that's accurate or not. But, that makes it the single most expensive event we did, and it took up the most amount of time.

What it's coming down to is, we can take up a weekend every month and spend $200 to do McKinney and make about $1000, or we can find events for at least half of those weekends and potentially spend about $200 apiece to make closer to an average of 3k. McKinney used to be good for reliable money, but it's not reliable anymore.

Other than that, I'm thinking of doing a series of (locked) journals detailing each year of this body's life. Some won't be terribly specific, but I'm hoping to focus on things that a. might be interesting to those who know us very well and b. are things I'd like to analyze in greater detail for my own purposes. We, as a system, have distanced ourselves from the body's childhood simply because we weren't here. We are discovering more fears and issues that are tied not to us but to the body directly. I'm hoping I can bring those issues to light so that we can really work through those problems. I'd like not to be held under the sway of misfiring synapses.

I wrote out a rough timeline on a sheet of notebook paper for us to work from. Right now I'm wondering if I should start at birth, or start this year and work backwards. I'm also wondering how much detail I should go into. The more I include, the higher the flock level will need to be. Or perhaps I can post this on my personal journal. I suppose I'll try to go into as much detail as I can. 21 years is 21 entries or less, perhaps. Not that much. Well, I'll give it a try.

Violet, I love you.
