And please...Generosity Stamp by KittyBlues





EDIT
Hey there. :meow: I wanted to update you all a bit on the journal entry I posted recently asking for help and advertisements. I'll probably just add an edit to the original journal entry, actually. Anyway, there are so many people I want to thank…

The amount of support I've received is just… it blew me away. I am truly blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful, caring people… :hug: I really can't thank you enough… The kind words, spreading the word, donations, commissions… I really just don't know what I could do to thank you all enough. Every little bit helps, and I will be transferring it all to my mom's bank account here shortly. Some of you who donated really…. Shocked me. A couple of you I happen to know are worse off than me. You'll remain nameless, but I'm really not sure how I feel accepting those donations… All I can do is thank you, and hopefully some gift art is in store. Some of you are more generous than called for, and I'm just so blown away that there are people in this world that are caring and giving to someone who is almost a complete stranger… I really, really, love you guys. And for those of you who could only advertise, please know that my emails have been flooded with messages saying, "I saw so and so's journal." This is what gives me hope for deviantART. We are an art community, and it is so nice to be able to actually BE a community. :heart:

Some of you go out of your way every day to spread the word for those in need… you make it your life and business to help others and raise awareness. You know who you are, and I respect you so so much. I'm actually hoping to be able to have a custom box on my profile page to advertise those in need on occasion. I want to be able to help others the way you have all helped me. I am truly blown away and thankful… I'm not out of trouble yet… not even close… as you could imagine. :XD: But the support so far has been… tons more than I ever could have dreamed for…

There are simply too many of you to list here, and some have asked to remain anonymous, so this will just be a thank you message to all who have reached out a hand or even just a kind word.
Thank you.


********************************************************************************************


Well, this is just great. I want so badly to help people out, but I can't even give $10 to help a friend get medicine… I guess I just found out why.

Last night my mom was in the worst mood, ranting and raving about everything and anything I've ever done wrong in my entire life, made shit up too, and continued on to yell at my dad about their first date or some shit. I wake up this morning and she's in a somewhat rotten mood once more. Today she calls me downstairs.

She informs me that any money I make needs to go to them. Any change, any commission money, anything. This may sound unfair, but hear me out.

Turns out that due to a vacation week and a down week in the same month at my dad's work, we'll be approximately $700 short. For rent, for bills, for everything.

Add to that $700 more dollars for that trip we're going on in July. We've already used the tax money to pay for the rooms and everything, and we're going with another family, so backing out now would fuck as all over, basically. We have to pay for the gas for the van we're renting, pay for half the food for everybody, spending money, plus money for extra things if we wanted.

That's probably not going to happen. This is what happens to us poor folk who attempt to have their first and only family vacation. :|

So now I realize just how absolutely useless I am. My commissions are very… rare, you know? So the only thing I can think of doing at this point is posting this journal advertising my commissions once more, and maybe asking those who read it to advertise for me as well? I don't know if there are groups for this type of thing or what? I plan on noting a few groups I'm in asking permission for a feature of some sort or something.

My pet isn't dying, my mom doesn't have cancer (though she may have a blood clot in her leg), and I'm not overly talented, but we need help nonetheless. $700 behind for rent and bills. Rent alone is most of that. If we're late, we'll get evicted. My landlord is an asshole. More than likely wherever we found after that wouldn't allow pets, so that would mean getting rid of Leo, Cindy and Jayjay. I would rather commit suicide. Those cats are the only things I have in this miserable hellhole. I don't even know anymore…

So… yeah. My commission info is here: fav.me/d41ipa5

My paypal is raclark1992@aol.com

If you send me money, please leave a note on there or note me here telling me who you are and if it's for a commission or donation or what. Yes, for the first time, I'm taking donations. I just don't really have a choice anymore.

Even if all you can offer is an advertisement or kind words, I love you all fiercely. :heart:

I'm sorry.

-- Roman

Im so sorry, and I absolutely know the feeling!

I in somewhat same kind of troubles... Since I got a whole month free time between two different levels of the same type of class here in June, I am not able to get support from the state in that period :(
I got absolutly no money to help you with, but atleast I am that lucky that the I could talk with my bank, and they would let me lone the money to pay the bills next month, and I would be able to pay them back in a period over 3 years. Since Im a student, that is very generous of them, because studens here in Denmark have very little money.

I hope you will get the help you need!
And, have your parents tried talking with their bank? If not, maybe that is an option :)

Pfft, come on, state government! Pick up the slack here! There are people in need! :eager: I'm sorry to hear that you're having those problems. At least they were willing to help you out a little bit. :hug:

I'm not sure, I'll ask them. They have horrendous credit, so... eh... ^^;

It feels like my government are really pissing on the people that tries to take an education.
If you dont have a job or a able to get help with money somehow, you risk getting kicked out of your home in the period between two educations :/
It is starting to become a problem in my country at the moment, since most people around my age can't find a job, so instead they decide to take an education, which highs the chances of getting a job when they are done.

I hope the bank can help you, even though they aren't allways that nice to talk to :)

Oh god, I hate our landlord... We've been here for like 6 years and we've had every white trash, drug growing partying neighbor there is. Breaking our stuff, stealing our mail... and did we complain? No. Yet he pounds on or door and bitches us out when our neighbors are late with rent. Um... okay then? I can see how that is totally fair. :|

Thank you, darling. :tighthug: And yes, I love The Hunger Games! :la:
