KIND OF AN EMERGENCY - PLEASE HELP!

Hi. Look, I don’t really like to share bits about my personal life and I especially don’t like asking for help - I usually do emergency commissions to take myself out of a rough spot, but… I really need the help this time.

I’m black, LGBT, and an animation student, and this summer my mental health really took a negative turn messed me up. My only means of earning rent is doing commissions, but I’m having trouble doing those quickly enough. There’s only two weeks until rent is due.

I’m sick. I’m having both issues with my reproductive tract (requiring lots of visits to the doctor - it costs $7 a trip in bus fare.) and a couple days ago acquired a case of strep that hurts so bad that I shake and sweat even from trying to drink water. I need meds for this, and it’s going to cost me money upfront before I can get part of the fee waived via my insurance.

Here’s my bank statement. My chequing account is overdrafted $124.50. I’m reaching my overdraft limit. My credit card is maxed out at $1000. And in total, the amount of short-term debt I’m in is $1600. I’m almost out of funds to get to the doctor’s, and I’m staying with my abusive mother and constantly have to lend her small bits of cash for bus tickets and the like too.

I do have $290 CAD in my paypal, but spending that on getting myself out of overdraft and paying for my meds would essentially negate all the progress I’ve made on making my rent. ($465) - And it’s due in 2 weeks.

I can take care of rent alright, I think. I can do the commissions. But I really need to have funds available in the meantime to get the healthcare I need.

If I could just get like $200 CAD, I think I’d be good for now. I could make the minimum payment for my credit card so I don’t incur more debt, un-overdraft myself and have money left over for bus tickets/soft foods i can eat/money in case of emergency while I finish up earning my rent money.

If you can donate… my paypal is steamycafe.art@gmail.com. If not, signal boosting always helps.

Thank you very much, and I’m sorry to clog up people’s dashes like this.


I’VE REACHED MY $200 CAD GOAL, AND THEN SOME. Any additional money will just go to paying rent/paying down my debt… BUT I’M VERY FIRMLY OUT OF HOT WATER - so thank you!

I have a much meatier bone for BD Wong if he really wanna test them skills.

Y'all this man is 56. In Earth years. A whole 56. I saw him in the West Village one time and I swear time stopped, angels sang, my edges smoothed down, my debt was erased, and all my crops got watered.

For years, John T. Edge has been telling the story of Southern food – its central role in Southern identity and what it owes to the African-American and immigrant cooks who have historically been left out of the standard narratives the South tells about itself.

In his new book, The Potlikker Papers: A Food History of the Modern South, Edge attempts to pay down what he calls “a debt of pleasure to those farmers and cooks who came before me, many of whom have been lost to history.”

Race, Class And Paying Down Southern Food’s Great ‘Debt Of Pleasure’

Hi~

While this is not at all fandom related, it is extremely important!

The en masse reblogs are from the National Shutdown/Stoppage that happened today May 1st 2017 on my island.

Puerto Rico is in the middle of a devastating economic crisis and our own government is trying to shut us down. The debt is immense and they want the people to pay for the missteps and bad administrative decisions of past governors and political individuals.

Our current governor doesn’t want the world to see what they’re doing to us and what they’re threatening to do to not only our possible future but the generations that come after.

The media silence is killing us, the indifference is killing us, this government had drafted and approved reforms that take us back to working conditions of slavery, that is trying to make us choose between health care or education, that is threatening to shut down programs and is trying to KILL the biggest university system of the island. They are draining us, they are pushing us away from our home because the only possibility progress is away from here. Please, please, please reblog and let the world know.

I think about it a lot but imagine how powerful a massive debt refusal would be to shock capitalism? Like, get a tens of millions of people to open up brand spankin’ new $10,000 limit credit cards and then just refuse to pay. While we’re at it, mass refusal of student debt, mortgages, etc. Everyone just simultaneously stop paying their debt down. What the fuck could they do? Lock a hundred million people up in prison?

its-just-sharpie  asked:

wait so is the caf safe or not? if you give people rides to the places they need to go, are they indebted to you? do cars protect you?

The dining hall is as close to neutral territory as you’re going to find on campus, bar the Library. It’s less to do with any actual attributes of the building and/or the food and more mutual, exhausted agreement not to have this particular knock-down drag-out fight.

Debts between students don’t generally have any of the ominous weight of a debt to one of the Gentry; it’s just that Elsa from down the hall owes you a beer or something, and if she blows you off it’s not a big deal. There’s not much riding on it except maybe how much you like Elsa. That said, the University’s circumstances have led to a culture where even mundane debts are quietly paid when possible, just in case.

Cars protect you from most Else things.

He never planned on finding himself torn between getting revenge and living happily with the daughter of family that destroyed his. After Mikasa’s parents die Levi decides to leave the family business and raise Mikasa away from all that. The nice red headed woman next door is a life savor as he knows nothing about little girls and she helps him raise Mikasa. At first he only allows her to help out of desperation but he finds himself feeling comfortable with her. Eventually she becomes his girlfriend. He often feels he is undeserving with all the blood on his hands. He fears that Mikasa and Petra will day find out about his past. To make this even more of a soap opera Armin is Mikasa’s bestfriend. He immediately likes Eren and when he sees how Mikasa’s eyes light with Eren around he’s happy to know Mikasa found someone to love. He’s taken by Erens friend Annie. She’s something else but he gets the feeling she doesn’t like Mikasa’s, hates her even. He knows she’s a good person but he feels that’s something is off, he doesn’t want to believe it though.

She grows up filled with hate. If they hadn’t murdered her mother shed have lived a happy life with a mother and father that loved her and not a man full of resentment forcing his plans on her. She meets Eren in high school and learns of their mutual hate for the Ackerman. They decide to work together to destroy them. She meets Armin and hates him. He can see right through her and she hates him for it. How can he know her so well when they barely know eachother. He makes her feel like a good person, makes her believe she can be a good person and she cant afford that when she needs to hold onto that hate to destroy Mikasa.

Monday morning and I am struggling to get my mind around making the commute. I so want to work from home so I can continue weaving in getting domestic shit accomplished. Half the office is out of town and the few who are there will be blasting music all day so I’ll find it impossible to go deep in my work. I love the job but I hate the work environment so much, and I hate the nearly two hours of precious time wasted sitting in my truck. 

That said, I bought a new car on Saturday. Should be here mid-week. Ugh, car shopping is mind-blowingly exhausting. They won’t put any real numbers down on paper, it’s just this endless stream of circus talk and empty promises. Reminds me quite a lot of online dating, in fact. Dingaling Bros Fuck You in the Eyehole While Emptying Your Bank Account. I left the dealership with my head spinning, borderline hyperventilating from the Lamaze breathing I kept having to step outside to do while texting furiously with Chris and Ami to help me make sure the math didn’t add up to me getting a giant corporate dick in my ass. 

My finances are still not quite stable after my two-year experiment working in food for cash under the table like a moron. I have a lot more credit card debt than I am comfortable admitting, but it is what it is, and I’m working on it, but holy shit… 

Cue Cher Voice: IF I COULD TURN BACK TI-IME. 

I’d love to keep driving the truck for another year to get my debt down more, but it’s having mechanical issues and bleeding trade-in value by the minute. Also, it gets 13 mpg highway and my commute is 75 miles a day. I could get a used car, but for what I want it’s still a stupid high loan payment, so I looked at leases and pulled the trigger on a 2017 CR-V 3 year closed lease with set buyback price. 

It’s a totally manageable payment and with the trade-in gives me some cash back that will let me pay off one of my credit cards, thus freeing up yet more of my cash to knock down the other two. 

In the end, I’ll pay a little more, but it’s a Honda and I’ll drive it for a long time. I don’t want to have to think about car shopping again for another ten years.

I went for the fully-loaded package: AWD, leather heated seats, moonroof, roof rails to accommodate the kayak I intend to get in the spring, and sight sensors. Silver with black interior. I’ve been stereo-free for two years now, stuck on the road with nothing but my own thoughts and knowing I needed to unload the truck because of transmission issues (tacs at 3000+ on the highway, not good) I didn’t want to waste money on a new stereo. By the end of the week, I’ll at least be able to use the 45 minutes each way to listen to podcasts. 

Oh, and yesterday I signed up for a free trial of You Need A Budget and got it all set up. I checked out a bunch of the tutorials and am blown away at the clarity I feel around my money. I had already stopped eating out at breakfast and lunch on work days (save $500 a month - what the hell was I even thinking) and really paying attention to my spending habits for the first time in a very long time. Getting back to living a cash-based life instead of leaning on credit cards for essentials. It’s so good to be out of emergency mode and feeling somewhat in control of what comes in and how it goes back out. 

Time to work.

Omg, it is so fascinating to see the differences between countries wages and costs of living. When you have written you earn 55k per year, i was like, wtf o.o, that much money?! And then 'i can barely sustain myself' o.o. Chicago rents and/or groceries must be so sky high. Coz the country i am from, if you earn like 9k euros per year (after taxes, and everything) you are earning more than average (minimal wage is 4k after taxes etc). The housing in our most expensive city is 650-1000 euros

per month (the lowest for 2bedroom the highest for 4bedroom flat). And i dont want to know how much would it be, if we had the wages you have over there.

Yep, Chicago is pretty expensive – I wouldn’t expect to earn $55K at my job in a cheaper city. FWIW, that $55K per year boils down to $3K per month after taxes and insurance, so it comes to $36K per year real money. 

For comparison, I pay $1.6K in rent on a one-bedroom, but I do live downtown, so I could live a little cheaper elsewhere, say $1.2K, maybe $900 if I didn’t mind moving back into a building full of wasps that was a ninety-minute commute from work. I also pay roughly $5K per year in student loans, which would be $10K per year but I’m on a long-term payment plan based on my income. 

I mean, I get by. I can cover my bills and any medical emergencies, and I’m paying down some debt from past medical emergencies I couldn’t cover. I have a small savings account and I can travel every few months. But if I were fired from my job tomorrow I would not be able to make rent for October.

I feel like at Comic Con, the cast keeps emphasizing that Jamie and Claire are apart for "most of the season" whereas before Caitriona kept saying "it's not that bad! don't worry!" -- do you have any idea how long we have to wait for the Print Shop? I was thinking it was Episode 6 but now I'm not sure... and to me that's already too long! I'm excited but worried I can't stand the wait!

Hi Anon, hello from a train from somewhere in the middle of Caitriona’s homeland! I’m still sticking with my guess that Episode 3x05 ends with the bell to the Print Shop ringing as Claire enters, or the words, “Is that you Geordie.” “It isn’t Geordie. It’s me, Claire.” Fade to black. Perfect cliffhanger.

Also in the TV Line interview at SDCC, Tobias said, “we get a chance in the first three episodes to peak inside what happens to that marriage, what happens to Frank and Claire in Boston…” So Frank might die earlier than we think! Either that was a mistake on his part or he knows he’s only in three eps. I hope for the latter! And based on info about 301 and everything they’ve said, this marriage is not a happy one. I’m actually looking forward to see it all go to shit.

Also, another clue. Sometime in the spring, these episode titles were put up on IMDb, then later taken down.

303: All Debts Paid
304: Of Lost Things
305: Freedom and Whisky

Freedom and Whisky refers to this in Chapter 21, Voyager:

There’s more. Internal evidence.” Roger’s voice betrayed his pride. “See there? It’s an article against the Excise Act of 1764, advocating the repeal of the restrictions on export of liquor from the Scottish Highlands to England. Here it is”—his racing finger stopped suddenly on a phrase—“ ‘for as has been known for ages past, “Freedom and Whisky gang tegither.” ’ See how he’s put that Scottish dialect phrase in quotes? He got it from somewhere else.”
“He got it from me,” I said softly. “I told him that—when he was setting out to steal Prince Charles’s port.”
“I remembered.” Roger nodded, eyes shining with excitement. “But it’s a quote from Burns,” I said, frowning suddenly. “Perhaps the writer got it there—wasn’t Burns alive then?”
“He was,” said Bree smugly, forestalling Roger. “But Robert Burns was six years old in 1765.”
“And Jamie would be forty-four.” Suddenly, it all seemed real. He was alive—had been alive, I corrected myself, trying to keep my emotions in check. I laid my fingers flat against the manuscript pages, trembling.
“And if—” I said, and had to stop to swallow again.
“And if time goes on in parallel, as we think it does—” Roger stopped, too, looking at me. Then his eyes shifted to Brianna.
She had gone quite pale, but both lips and eyes were steady, and her fingers were warm when she touched my hand.
“Then you can go back, Mama,” she said softly. “You can find him.”

So it’s very likely it aligns with my prediction that they search for him in 305 and she goes back. Also the trailers tend to include clips from the first 4-5 episodes.

Hopefully the titles weren’t wrong and haven’t changed. And hopefully this eases your mind a bit! Over the next month we’ll probably be able to piece this together more. I am excite!

Word count: 2,044

Warnings: Swearing as always

NOTES: feedback is really appreciated, sorry it took a while and sorry it’s a lot of information.

“Miss (y/n), Mr. stark requests your presence in the conference room immediately.”

A voice jerked you out of a blissful slumber, one filled with fantasies of how tonight’s date would go with Bucky. You groaned and rolled over, peering at the red screaming numbers of the clock.

7:13 am

“Tell him I’m on my way.” You mumbled back to the AI, luckily though he caught it and left you at peace. Your voice sounded slightly scratchy and robotic, as if static was clouding the used to be clear audio that was your man made voice.

You lazily stumbled out of bed, throwing on the nearest clean- or semi clean- shirt and pants and made your way down to the conference room.

When you arrived, all the avengers stood like a pack of wolves around a table, pointing angrily at different areas on an electronic map. It wasn’t long until tony noticed you, and spoke up, earning the attention of all other heroes. “Morning sleeping beauty.”

“Good morning.” You replied, but your voice had gone almost completely robotic, causing your hand to shoot up to your throat in worry. Everyone’s eyes were wide and concerned; all except Tony’s who simply smirked.

“Ah, I was afraid this would happen.” He pulled a small box, almost resembling an altiode tin out of his pocket and opened it, taking out a small chip. “Not to worry, iv thought of everything, as usual.”

He walked up to you and without warning, turned your head, moved your hair, and plunged the small square behind your ear.

“I created this little port back here for upgrades, that way surgery isn’t always necessary.”

He stepped back and motioned you to try it out.

“Thanks tony.” You tried, and it was clear, yet it seemed all eyes were still wide on you. “What?” you asked.

And that’s when you heard it, it wasn’t your voice, it was Tony’s, clear as day.

“Please don’t tell me this was your intention, when you said you updated her software.” Steve mumbled.

“Tony! What happened, did you give me your voice!” you shrieked.

“Calm down, calm down. No, although I’m sure you’d love that.” He hurriedly tried to explain. “Think of someone else; think of their voice, their tone.”

“What do you mean think of someone else?!” you yelled in frustration, and your sure if anyone closed their eyes they would think tony was having an argument with himself. “Why?!”

“Think of someone else, someone’s voice, just try it.” He pleaded.

You furrowed your brows but then began thinking of the first person that popped into your head. Unfortunately between your worry and anger that person was still Tony, and you had to force your mind to navigate to another individual.

Your mind went straight to Bucky, you wanted to pretend it was because he was staring at you from across the room, eyes turned in concern, but you knew it was because he was always on your mind.

He was like malice on cheap wallpaper, he was always there and his presence, his thought, his being clung to your mind. You concentrated on his voice, its low hum, its warm vibrancy, and you found yourself captivated.

You mumbled and stuttered until actual words formed, and luckily not a robotic, or stark tone.

“I swear to god if you don’t fix this-“you stopped abruptly. Your voice, it was exactly how you imagined it. It was Bucky’s voice, crystal clear, so much so that a few members of the team looked back at Bucky to be sure he hadn’t said anything. His eyes were wide and his face was drawn into an almost awe struck expression

“There you go!” tony cheered.

“Now what! I want to sound like me!”  The tone of your voice was still low, and you had to remind yourself that Bucky wasn’t actually saying anything.

“Just think about your normal voice it’s not that hard.”

You huffed and forced your thoughts on your own voice.

“why did you make it this way in the first place.” You questioned, surprised to find your voice in its normal tone.

“You lost your powers.” He sighed, and then quickly continued as your eyes narrowed. “- which was a good thing for your health and all, but it made you pretty useless on the field.”

“I was never on the field anyway.”

“Yeah, yeah I know, but I had always planned you to be, you’re a smart kid, I want you to be with us out there.” He paused and fished a small remote device out of his pocket, “here, this will hopefully help with all the controls, the thinking part is more of a last result.”

You took the remote from his hands, and peered down at the light up touch screen.

“What could I even do with this on the field?”

“Your new vocal cords allow you to copy anyone’s voice that you hear. This will be perfect paired with a little hand to hand combat training from Natasha.” He glanced at the red head, who glared at him, then back to you with a smirk. “you can talk to an opponent, get his vocal frequency, take him out, then easily talk through his comms.”

He looked damn proud of himself, only causing Steve’s annoyed expression to deepen.

“and what if that ‘opponent’ is speaking a different language.” Steve interjected.

“Oh!” he grabbed the device from your hands, and fiddled around with it after typing in four different security codes. “There, speak.”

You felt like a dog but did anyway.

“Jo të bisedoni me mua si im një qen.” You covered a hand over your mouth.  (“dont talk to me like a dog”)

“Kjo eshre ajo qe gjuha!?” (what language is that?!)

you where sure that no one could understand you, so its not as if questions was effective, that is until tony looked down, seeming to be reading something.

“uhhh- Albanian.” Tony stated.

“Ndryshoje ate perseri!” (change it back!)
he again looked down at the screen. scanned it and began typing.

“better?” he asked
“god i hope so.” you responded.
He handed you the device again, then began to walk out the door. only then did you notice to translate audio controls he was using.

“We’ll use you on our next mission, try to practice with it from now until then.” He was followed by Steve, Natasha, Thor and Wanda.

You stood there, glancing towards Bucky then back down at the screen in your hands.

————————————————

That night you spent almost 4 hours picking out the right outfit. You finally settled on professional looking white blouse and black slacks. It was hard to except comfort in wearing a dress, especially for how fragile your body used to be, instead you decided you’d slowly work up to that.

After doing your makeup and hair, you went down to the common room and found Bucky waiting patiently on the couch, his body lined in kaki pants, and a navy blue dress shirt. When his eyes locked on you, he stood.

“Y-you, I uh…” he stuttered, “You look amazing.” You blushed as he then rubbed the back of his neck and quickly grabbed his gray blazer from the back of the couch. “Are you ready?”

You nodded meekly.

It was a funny thing, being so nervous around him, you’d kissed him before, talked to him plenty, and he took an unusually fast likening to you. But still you felt butterflies in your tummy and simultaneously  felt those butterflies flap their wings of fire to cause it to churn.

Nervous, yes that’s what you still are. The whole way there, clinging to Bucky’s arm, and the entire time you waited to be seated.

And then, you weren’t.

You were flying on cloud 9, staring into pools of ocean and laughing with the sound of liquid gold that poured from his mouth.

“You really broke 6 bones while trying to play tennis?” he chuckled.

“Yeah well I was an hyper child.” You replied, but then he stopped for a moment, thinking.

“(y/n)?” he asked softly, peering over the candle light as you pressed a glass of wine to your lips.

“Hmm”

“What happened before Tony found you.”

You coughed; choking on your drink and feeling some pour down your chin, but quickly wiped it before it could touch your blouse.

“Sorry, I’m just curious, you don’t have to-“

“No, no. it’s alright Bucky.” You cleared your throat. “Id start at just before they took me in but it probably wouldn’t make any sense.”

“Start were ever you’d like”

You smiled.

“When I was little my dad was always a little… worried, about me.” You gulped. “More so then most parents, but out of anything I think in a way.. He was scared of me.”

“Scared of you?” Bucky questioned.

“My mom died, when I was born. But the doctors never knew why. And I think in a way he blamed himself… but even more he blamed me.”

You took a deep breath and let it out through your mouth.

“As I grew up, he started to notice my frail state. I broke bones so often a hospital room became like a second home, and as such my father spiraled down into debt.”

“So he did the only think he could think of.” You looked up at Bucky, his expression hard and concerned. “He put me up for adoption.”

“How… how old where you?”

“Ten.” You smiled. “Ten, and id already broken every bone in my body at least once.”

“I was an active kid, I loved sports, I loved dares, but when I was put into that home, I was on lock down. A couple times even in a padded cell.”

The waiter came to pick up menus, asking about choices and smiling sweetly at you. But Bucky didn’t remove his eyes from your face, he was frozen.

“Did you ever….” He trailed,

“No. I never got adopted. I was there from 10 to 18 and not once was I even allowed to be interviewed.”

You gave a humorless laugh.

“Defective, that’s what they’d call me. So I felt I needed to prove to them, and my father I could live on my own.”

“So I left, an 18 year old with no money, family or friends, and I got a job.”

This time you laughed, you laughed in good heart and watched Bucky smile softly at the sound.

’Terry’s seafood.’ I always smelled like tuna and grease. But I found a little apartment, and I lived, I lived and I didn’t break a single bone for 2 years.”

“What happened?”

You shook your head.

“The third year wasn’t bad. Minor injuries., the 4th and 5th was just bad relationships and insomnia but the 6th … I was in car crash, broke so many bones I was in the hospital for months, and when I got out… I was so far in debt, so lost in the pile of rent, that I couldn’t get back up.”

The food finally arrived, but being so engaged in the conversation, neither of you began to eat.

“The whole year before Tony found me was hell. I lost my job, my home, everything. It was like a nightmare, because I finally saw my dad in myself. Not even I could deal with me. I was so much baggage; I couldn’t even live with myself.

“And… the blast?” Bucky wondered. But he had the most heartbroken look on his face. One that he got when he wanted to say something but couldn’t. And you knew him well enough to know that it was probably something to contour your inner turmoil.

“I broke my leg.” You wiped a hand down your face. “I broke my leg, and I had no house, no job, and a mountain of debt, I couldn’t go to the hospital, but I also couldn’t walk, which means I couldn’t find food. So I was angry, I was livid. Why me. Why did I have to carry around this burden of glass skin, and then… I just kind of lost it.”

You poked around your plate with your fork.

“I didn’t mean to do so much damage Bucky… I really didn’t.” you mumbled.

“Well I’m glad you did.” He chuckled.

“Why?”

“Well… because we met.”
