In the past couple of days, something happened with my dad, something that I will not be going into detail with. It is personal and family related, but in short, it’s put us back on things. I’m very bad at describing the situation when I’ve been asked not to disclose specific information, so I need to hope that my followers believe me.
Basically, for the past year now, we’ve been low on money. We being my family and I. My dad’s business has suffered one asshole fucking us over after another. It’s cost us thousands upon thousands of dollars. The entire situation is very complicated and it’s incredibly stressful. My mom doesn’t work (she has my brothers and sister to watch over). So my dad’s business is our ONLY source of income.
With us already being basically dirt poor, struggling to have enough food from week to week (I’m ashamed to admit I’ve had to ask numerous friends for dinner this past year and I swear to god, I swear it you guys, I will fucking pay you back when I have the money, I’m so sorry), and owing bills/money to a lot of people (I mean off of the top of my head, our electric is due. That’s a couple hundred right there and we don’t have that kind of money), we’re…. well we’re kind of really fucked.
Especially with what happened to my dad this past few days. I’m terrified. I don’t want to lose my home. I don’t want my parents to lose their home. I want to help and right now, alongside job searching, this is ALL I can do.
I don’t have a lot to offer. Maybe some CSS help or forum help. My tablet is broken so I can’t do art commissions for now. But please, I’m just asking for a bit of help. I was considering another GoFundMe but I’ve heard shady things, but I don’t know of any other place to go. So direct paypal donations is all I can think of right now.
I know I had another GoFundMe up. That was for something personal. For my boyfriend and I. But that one won’t matter if my family and I are kicked from our homes or have our electric shut off. We’re trying, we’re trying really god damned hard to get things going. All we ask is just a LITTLE bit of help, please. I’ll offer all I can as payback for any donations.
Please, please, if you can’t donate, pass this around. I’m begging you.
If you can donate, donate to email@example.com
Select “Send money to friends and family”, please.
I’m so sorry to ask. So, so fucking sorry, but I’m desperate. My family is desperate.
Kah is a giant sweetheart who really really needs help, so I’m reblogging this here. This is desperate. It’s her, her family, a roof above their head and food on their plate.
It’s nice to have fellow uni students following me!
You know, when you’ve always done digital work and then must work traditionally, it is a humbling and simultaneously satisfying experience. It feels new, different, and it’s a lot of fun. Even if the assignment is “draw your hand in ink”.
Why did it have to be hands?
I’ve slacked a lot in the past of the art department when it comes to traditional art and it feels very good to (fucking finally) work on true fundamental stuff. The road of artistic progress is different for everyone, I suppose. It most certainly is not linear.
I’ve been down with bacterial tonsillitis hence I’ve been a bit absent, but I’m starting to feel better. Been doing school stuff. Been doing a whole lot of nothin’, laying around being sick.
