guys maybe i can afford college

please help a fellow army out!!

Hey guys, so since everyone is doing their best to vote for Bangtan at the BBMAs, maybe you can help a fellow army out too? My school has a competition going on for our fine arts programs, and there’s 3 categories in which you can enter: acting, instrumental, or vocal performance. I’m very happy to say that I’ve been chosen as a finalist in the vocal performance category!! The grand prize for the contest is $1,000 and my parents and I could really use that money for college since I’ll be graduating next year and right now we’re not sure if we can afford to send me to a good university. It would mean a lot to me if you all can help me out and vote for my video!! You don’t have to vote for anyone else in other categories (unless you want to), but please vote for RAYE ANN ABANTE under the vocal performance category. Voting multiple times is allowed, but I’d be extremely grateful if you vote even just once. Thank you so much!! Link to vote:

It’s Insanity, but... Panic

Note: This is raw Sciles Bromantic fluff from an outsider POV. Really, it’s just a funny little scene I wanted to write in the ‘verse. Hope you enjoy!

It’s Insanity, but… Panic

“Ohmygod, ohmygod, ohmygod-”

The voice starts at a fairly regular decibel but grows louder as it continues.

Triss sighs. She has no doubt that whatever is about to happen to her life will not be worth the nine dollars an hour Target pays her. It is two pm on a Tuesday – it is supposed to be dead enough that she can get some reading done.

Still, she can’t afford to get fired so she looks up enough to locate the source of the panicked mutters. Maybe they’re lost and she can tell them to go away.

“I can’t believe this,” the voice continues. “This is- we are not ready- this is-”

Triss rolls her eyes.

It’s two guys who look like maybe they are a few years out of college, if that, and she suddenly has no doubt that whatever they are stressing out about does not matter at all. They are both cute, but obviously together (judging by the way they are all but hanging off each other, hands tangling in shirts and gripping arms as they spin around, looking for whatever it is they need.)

“Okay, okay, Scotty-boy,” the taller one says, pulling out his phone. “Let’s just remain calm. This is not the end of the world.”

Triss nods in agreement and tries to turn back to her book.

“It is the end of the world,” the shorter one- Scott – declares. “Oh God, Stiles, she’s- it’s- I think it’s like a big deal.”

“Not a big deal,” the one called Stiles replies. “I mean, it can’t be a big deal. Tons of people- holy shit!”

“What! What is it?”

“There are like a thousand articles on this,” Stiles says, waving his phone in Scott’s face too quickly for him to actually read anything. Triss sighs. They are definitely not lost. “I can’t- have you ever heard of Von Willebrand’s disease?”

“There’s a DISEASE?!”

“Oh my god,” Stiles continues, not looking up. Triss really needs both of them to move away from the main entrance. They are going to scare off other costumers. Not that she really cares but it’s the principle of the thing. “There is also one called-”

“Don’t tell me anymore!” Scott begs. “Let’s just- let’s just get what we need and get out of here. I got the text ten whole minutes ago, Stiles!”

“Right,” Stiles says and then they both do a last spin, still clutching to each other before dashing off.

I’m 16 and I need to start thinking about college. I want to go to a University Of California and if you live in America, you know how expensive college classes are and how hard it is to be a college student. My parents are broke at the moment and cannot save even a dollar back for my college fund. I was thinking maybe starting in the new year as I draw closer to being 17, I should start up graphic and writing commissions. I know that not all of you can afford anything like that, it’d be like a dollar or two depending??

Why I’m asking you guys is, I have no idea whether or not what I create will be worth the dollar.


Hey guys!

So, living across the country from my family and going to college, I’m going through some tough times. So, I’ve started selling my charcoal drawings (all of the above are mine and available to buy) to pay for my medical and school bills. It would mean a LOT to me if you guys would check out my Etsy here, and maybe buy something (or reblog this to show others if you can’t afford it).

I also draw for commission! You can request a drawing on my shop’s blog here (charcoaldiamonds). My general prices are:

5x7: $10.00
8.5x11: $15.00
11x17: $25.00
And we’ll work out a shipping cost based on your location (shipping all over the world!)

Again, it’d mean SO so much to me, these bills really need to be paid. Thank you for reading!
