To say things haven't been the best would be understating things. To start things off, I need to say this; my PayPal is still unavailable for use. I can not send, or receive any funds through that service. If you wish to commission me, you'll have to use Google Wallet. You can still send to Tank50us@gmail.com , use Square, or you snail-mail it to me. If you have any questions or concerns, you can ask me about it in the comments below.
"Why haven't you fixed your PayPal yet?" you may be asking. The answer is quite simple... $400 is hard to just make appear out of no-where at a whim. Believe me, I wish I had that ability to snap my fingers and make money appear from thin air, much to my dismay.
I am trying to find a job that allows me enough time to work on art, while at the same time, paying me enough to cover my bills. So far, I've found that this place by the name of Dynamex has been able to do that, but it only barely covers the rent, and not much else. I do have some leads on some better positions, but it won't be until after the 1st before anything becomes available.
What also hasn't helped much was the fact that a number of the things that I've tried (new YCHs, adoptables, and some specials), just haven't worked out as I had hoped. I'm not exactly sure what more I can do (other than complete what I owe) to fix all of this. I'm open to suggestions on what I can do to fix the problem, just so long as they don't break my 'will-not-does'. Obviously the stress that all of this has caused hasn't been too great on my work ethic either, and it did put me into a bit of a funk that I'm only now starting to come out of.
"Wow tank, that's depressing, has anything good happened?"
Why yes, a few good things have happened. For one, I've actually got a social life now. I wish I could get out more to have even more of one, but it's better then what I had in the eight years I lived in Malvern Penitentiary (Malvern Arkansas for those just joining me, since I almost never went anywhere). Every other week sees me at the Perkins Restaurant in Minnetonka MN. I'm usually there with FlyingFire
and my other room-mates in case you guys wanna come out and chat. ^__^
Athena is also doing well. She doesn't have anyone threatening to kill her like she did in Arkansas (my step-grandmother was always wanting to kill her for idiotic reasons). She also gets out far more often for walks, and I've even found places that are canine friendly and allow her inside with no questions asked. There's also a couple dog parks in the area where she can be let off leash. Obviously this time of year it's not that great an idea for extended periods of over an hours time, seeing as it's a bit nippy outside.
I've also been busy computer building as well! Since I've arrived in MN, I've built three gaming rigs which I'm proud of. If the money ever became available, I'd honestly love to do that for a living. As for the computers, they're running pretty well according to their owners, and I certainly haven't received any complaints about them. There are upgrades that I could perform on at least one of them, but those can wait until the funds are available.
Well, there's a bit more than that going on, but I think this will suffice for now. Please leave any comments, questions, or concerns in the comments.
