Screw the Banks

So, I’m pulling out of work and I’m waiting at traffic lights to turn right. As I’m turning, this bicyclist thinks he can make it across the road and I almost hit him. Luckily, I hit the breaks in time. I’m so shook up, I end up staying in the right lane and end up on the highway. No big deal, I’ll just get off on the next exit. So I get off, and put in coordinates for food, because I haven’t eaten yet. Well, A&W is right next to my work, its where I wanted to go in the first place, so I have to do a big loop around to get back taking only back roads.


Then, I have to get to the bank. Screw the bank. Screw everything. I end up on some back roads out where my grandmother is- I don’t even know how I ended up there.

I ended up taking the roads home, vowing never to drive again.

I get home and my dad asks me to go and pick up my siblings from school because a friend lost his keys and is stranded at work.

I am never driving again

EMERGENCY FUNDRAISER

Hey guys, hate to do this but I don’t really have a choice right now. My financial aid department STILL hasn’t given me my money that I need to pay bills and rent and we’re going into October. Rent is due tomorrow and technically it was supposed to be in the mail today, I can stall my landlord for a day or two but that’s about all I have right now. My funds aren’t set to come in until next week sometime which means I need about 780$ in the next three days. My parents don’t have the money and are scrambling to find anything, I don’t have a job due to personal health issues as well as not having a car. I had expected the money to be here last week but because of a banking screw up and the school dragging their feet I my plans went up in smoke. So, please, if you have an extra dollar or five or anything really I would really appreciate it if you donated to my paypal at purplelilypetals@gmail.com

If you don’t have money I completely understand (trust me I do) but if you could please PLEASE reblog this.

Hell once I get the money if you want me to reimburse you I will, just let me know your paypal name. If you want a fic or a rec or a sketch I can do that too I’m really desperate. 

please help if you can!!

So basically my bank screwed me over and took out two payments instead of one for my car loan. Long story short, I can’t get the money back easily or quickly and I really need that money. So. Emergency commission post.

Prices!
If you have an idea for something, but it’s not listed here, let me know! I’m able make a lot of different things.

Scoodies:  $40-$80+
 - Simple scoodie (one or two colors) is the base $40, but any additions can run you up to the $80+. I can do basically any animal and I love doing comic book characters (Marvel/DC is my favorite, but I’m up for whatever).

Hats: $30
 - Animals/characters/crazy colors. I can do (or try to do) anything

Snails: $20 - $25+
 - Simple snails (non character, basically) is the base $20 and any additions will add up to the $25+. As most of my followers know, I can do a lot of different kinds of snails.

Cross stitch quotes: $25 - $30+
 - This one is both size and complexity. Around $25 for a 4 inch framed stitch, and around $30 for a 6 inch framed stitch. I can also go bigger, but the price will also raise. I’m willing to make whatever you’d like!

As always, there are things available in my etsy shop: [link]
I do have a lot of the more recent crochet items already made (Hogwarts scoodies/hats, Mario scoodies/hats, etc). So even though they’re set as made to order, a lot of them can go out right away!

Even if you’re not interested in buying anything, I would really appreciate a signal boost!

Please do not repost, reblog instead and leave all artists comments intact, thank you.

So here’s the deal, my bank screwed me over at the last minute and they want $400 worth of fees due by the 22nd, or I face catastrophic consequences (like no paychecks for half a year). This came up at the worst possible time, as on the 21st… I’m flying out to see a my very dear friend for the first time, and have pretty much no money to meet the bank’s deadline. Anyone with close online friends knows that meeting them for the first time should be a happy moment, but instead I’ve been slammed with all this stress. So! I’m selling off massive chunks of my personal collections and extra convention stock to attempt to raise something to keep the bank happy.

All prices are listed on the photos, and items will be scribbled out as theyre sold. All items are kept in collector’s condition. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ITEMS, please email turntechgeneticist[at]aol.com with a descrip of what you want! Any purchases over $25 will get a thank you card with a sketch a pokemon or pony (including OCs) of your choice!

Signal boost is extremely appreciated, and thank you for consideration in this stressful time!

I'm financially FUCKED.

I had to dip into my rent money again, which means when my disability money comes in, I’m gonna have to pretty much put ALL of it towards my rent. This means I’m gonna be screwed for two weeks. I’m down to basically just noodles and pasta. I may be able to get some free food from Princes Trust but a) that means buying a bus ticket to the centre, b) most of it is very short dated and I don’t have a freezer, and c) It’s really hard to rely on free food when you have allergies and digestive issues. I’ll also have trouble actually going to supermarkets etc for food because I need to get busses because of the whole arthritis situation.

I’m also running really low on tobacco and believe me, I do not handle my life well when I can’t smoke. I’ll also have trouble seeing my boyfriend because I won’t be able to travel to his town, and seeing how he’s basically as fucked as me because he got screwed on bank charges, he can’t come to me either.

On top of this, I now have two rescue cats that obviously need feeding.

Anything at all will help, seriously. £3.60 will buy me a bus ticket. £3.87 will buy me 12.5g of tobacco. £2.70 will get me 6 cans of cat food.

If anyone would be willing to help me out, my paypal email is westfire1991@googlemail.com.

I hate the way banking screws people over. But if your anti-banking message basically says “if you use banks at all you’re supporting a corrupt system, you should use only cash and boycott it and if you don’t do that then you’re two-faced” or something, you can fuck off. Do you know how hard it is to live without a fucking debit card these days? Especially if you’re stuck at home a lot due to disability? This modern world relies heavily on having a bank account, and some one can hate the ways banks punish the poor WHILE STILL HAVING A BANK ACCOUNT BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO SOMEHOW STILL PAY BILLS AND SUCH.

On a very similar note, not everyone has the option of going everywhere on a bicycle or using public transportation only. Yes I want a greener world too but I also want to eat and the only fucking way I can get to a grocery store is in a fucking car because there IS no public transportation here and I can’t ride a bike and I am FAR from the only one limited in their “socially progressive” capabilities.

So before you rag on some one for being “part of the problem”, recognize that the system traps people and there’s frequently no way around that. Instead support people who still use these things while wanting those things to change for the better.

… And definitely don’t rag on people for literally just LIVING in a place. I live in Texas, Texas frequently sucks. Don’t tell me to “just move somewhere else”, leaving my friends and family and home and spending a bunch of money I don’t have to totally uproot my life instead of me staying where I am and hopefully doing my part to change this place for the better. And northerners, y’all aren’t so perfect up there either so stop looking down one everyone else as if your system isn’t just as fucked up.

I was going to stick with just the issue of banks here, but seriously, I’m sick of ALL of these things. Stop making other progressive people feel guilty for the things they can’t fucking help or change all by themselves. You’re not better than them just because you pay for everything in cash while riding around your accessible city on a bicycle.

Plea

I honestly hate doing this; I’ve been having money issues for a while now but I’m finally caving.

I’m managing equilibrium on bills as they hit, at the moment, barely, but I’m behind almost $1000 on my house payment and have no ability to catch up. I’m only able to work half-time because of a fatigue condition the doctors are still working to diagnose, and being unable to catch up on the payment is quietly destroying my credit. It’s not the only bill I’m behind on, but it’s definitely the one screwing me the most. The bank keeps calling me to tell me I have to catch up soon, which isn’t doing my anxiety any favors, and I’m afraid if I don’t do something soon, they’ll take some kind of punitive action.

My parents are buying all my groceries because after bills, I’ve got barely anything left over for food.

Anything would help, honestly. I’ve got a paypal button on my blog. I’ll post whenever I get a donation, in the case that I get any, for transparency. Pls help.

I find ‘modern’ graphic design and interior design to be the ugliest shit in the world. I hate what design has become with a passion. First off, flat design; it looks like a 4 year old’s artwork on Kid Pix without the line-art and primary colors, only horrible pastel crap. Secondly, minimalism; it’s sparse, boring and generic. I’m sick of seeing all these websites with barely shit on their pages, or a page with a few cryptic wingdings pasted on plain squares masquerading as an 'option bar’. It’s not cool or 'hipster’, it’s fucking lazy. Websites, especially mobile ones, are now carbon copies of each other; nothing is special, unique or cool anymore. The same goes with logos; look at Ebay and Yahoo. It’s like we’ve fallen into some twisted sort of design communism, where everything looks and works the fucking same, the 'fucking same’ being completely white websites/designs/rooms and the barest minimum of character. What happened to the fun, alive designs of the 90’s and 2000’s? Our technology has evolved to the point where theoretically, anything design-wise is possible and programmable. So why are we following a strict formula for such things? Shouldn’t we be embracing all our different design ideas? Or did everyone become fun Nazis and decide fun was below their pretentious intellect? Because seriously, if that’s the case, I’d rather return to an age where the Internet was 28.8 kb/s, Y2K meant a complete redesign of computer systems as to not screw up banking, stocks, and the like, and the President was banging an attention-whore secretary. Fuck you all.

My stress levels have just been so high lately. Between work and lots of other personal mess it’s like a few days of calm followed by madness.

My screwed up bank account and slow to act bank have forced me to cancel my trip to Atlanta this weekend.

But I did get extra time to enjoy my blueberry coffee and a new show on HGTV before work.Add that channel to my food network cable.

I’m just gonna rest a lot this weekend, take myself to see Captain America and try not to be too bummed about not being in Atlanta or in Texas with my family.

Happy Friday, boys and girls!
