The Dysk is burning down, help fund a refurbishment...
I'm a big fan of Discworld, having taken my middle name after it, and when I first got my laptop I felt like it would be like the theatre of my world - hence naming it The Dysk. Now it's burning as bad as the tightpacked Ankh-Morpork's wooden houses in a summer wildfire, and an upgrade is in order.
My laptop has been dying for a long, long time. As I’ve been stuck with crippling depression and am trying my hardest to get a stable form of income, I’m unable to get any loans from my bank that wouldn’t laugh me out of the office, so I’m turning to the kindness of strangers to try and help myself find a way to more routinely talk to friends.
As my main form of social interaction is through social media, having the laptop overheat so badly it needs to be left unplugged for half an hour after as much, or less, time spent browsing the internet is extremely draining to my already limited amount of daily energy.
Not to mention I dreamed of actually being able to spend time with friends in online games - which hasn’t been possible in at least 3 years - is trapping me within dreams and making it hard to tell where I am in time when I wake up.
The funds I’m asking for are to let me buy a new computer that should finally help me catch up with the last generation of games - which will help ground me, allow me to work on a few projects I have in mind (one being a minecraft story pack based around the Myst series, another being getting back into regularly commentating on videos with friends which I’ve been missing dearly) - and hopefully help lead to a return to my depression-neglected hobby of writing.
