im so tired, tired as a byard

I googled “tired person” and got a link to Urban dictionary:

An extremely tiredperson who is having a hard time doing anything, even talking because they’re so tired.
Woah,im so tired, tired as a byard.
This is very much how I am feeling at the moment.
You remember my last post (AGES ago!) was about the contract job I was offered for a month? Ja well, like, 11 weeks later I’m still there. Working an average of  20-30 hours a week at their offices (50km from home) … and then add approximately another 20-30 hours a week of my own Snapping Turtle work  and I”m averaging quite a large amount of working hours a week. And the thing about my line of work, is that all those hours are *creative* hours… I need to be designing, creating, making pretty all.the.time… it is quite draining.
Why am I doing it you may ask?? Well, working for myself income is obviously up and down… but in December months it is down. really really really down. All my clients close, all my suppliers close and I have no work. No work = no money. And obviously no Christmas bonus! The last 2 decembers have been very bleak… So, I persevere with this double job thing, and I’m saving the money to be able to have a december where I have more than a few rands to my name. A december where I can go out for dinners, and parties and cocktails etc. A december where I can buy Christmas presents for those I love, and even treat myself to something nice!
It’s really hard tho.
But the thought of another december like last december kinda pushes me through.
Until then, I will continue to be as tired as a byard

All that said – the job is ok… I was so so so nervous before I started, but I’m managing :)
