how i raise money for school

Things to think about for the movie

  • Is Cole’s father going to make an appearance at all
  • How does he feel about Cole being “uber rad”
  • Is Zane’s creator/father going to be shown at all or is Zane just living alone as a robot
  • Will Pixal show up at all as Zane’s “high school sweetheart” and is she a robot or is she an AI in Zane
  • If she is a student at the school will she be an example of Zane going from stoic to actually having emotions (“Looks like Mr. Roboto can feel emotions”)
  • Are Kai and Nya raising each other because they have no parents
  • If they are raising each other where do they get the time to balance jobs for money/food, work from school, and being ninja
  • Are Jay’s parents still living in a junkyard and are they still inventors
  • Does Jay still invent things and did he help Nya build their cool vehicles
  • Is there going to be Jaya at all
  • Are the parents of the ninja just… never concerned about how long the ninja are gone when they go to fight? I’d be worried if my child disappeared. 
  • Is Lloyd just older now or are we doing the advanced aging thing or??
  • If the four weapons don’t exist in the movie then why does Garmadon have four arms
  • Is Wu like a granddad to them all and will there be a scene where one of them goes “yes dad” in a sarcastic tone
  • Will we see any Serpentine/ Skeletons/ Ghosts/ Etc.
  • Will the ninja even have elemental powers or are they just “ninja warriors”
  • Are the ninja all in the same classes or will some be in AP/College courses
  • Are the ninja freshmen, sophomores, juniors, or seniors and is Lloyd the same grade as them
  • Are any of them in any sports or activities like band
  • Will there be something like a school dance
5 Ways to Make Your Activities List Awesome

You only get 150 characters to list an activity on your college app: how do you make the most of them? Like this:

1. TO FIT IN MORE INFO: USE LISTS, DON’T USE COMPLETE SENTENCES, CUT EXTRA WORDS.

Instead of: I raised money to donate to a school in Ghana in Africa by selling t-shirts and bracelets.
Try: Arranged advertising events, organized fundraisers, and gave presentations at school meetings.

2. USE ACTIVE VERBS TO EXPLAIN WHAT YOU ACTUALLY DID–AND LIST YOUR TASKS.

So instead of: I worked at a clinic doing different things.

Try: Organized patient diagnosis notes, sterilized tools for surgeries, assisted with x-ray analysis.

See how that makes it sound like you actually were involved?

3. USE THE PRESENT TENSE IF IT’S SOMETHING YOU STILL DO.

Instead of: I helped tour visitors around the campus and presented some information on school history and student life.

Try: I give campus tours, providing info on school history, student activities, boarding life.

4. AIM FOR VARIETY IN YOUR LIST, MAKING SURE YOUR VERBS AREN’T REDUNDANT.

Instead of: Instructing, helping, teaching children tennis (how are these three different?)

Try: Instructing in proper technique, while imparting lessons in sportsmanship, health and integrity.

5. STATE ROLE AND ORGANIZATION NAME IN TOP BOX, SO YOU DON’T WASTE CHARACTERS IN THE LOWER, 160 CHARACTER BOX.

Instead of:
(top box) School newspaper
(description box) I am the editor for the school newspaper (Don’t repeat words!)

Try:

(description box) Responsible for brainstorming, revising, and supervising articles by other writers for my column.

holy shit omg how did you even gEt AwAY WItH tHAt IM SCREAmING

I came home to a letter from my rental office that my lease is going to be up soon and I have to decide what I’m going to do. which lead me into a panic because I’m switching to a month to month but it will raise my rent almost $80. So I had a nice cry but dad called me and it made me feel a little better. I hate to admit it but I’m scared about money. I don’t know how I’m going to survive once I’m done school and I’m a bit terrified.  How am I going to afford to move and have money to get an apartment? I just don’t know what I’m going to do. I really hope finding a job and everything just goes smoothly and they pay for me to relocate.

Todays still bee n good. A bit rainy. And very long. But a good enough day. I slept alright, woke up at 830 and laid in bed until 9 messing around on my phone. I got up and dressed. I didn’t eat breakfast. But I was really lethargic and didn’t want to do anything. I felt cute today though.

I got to my studio at 10 and worked on some stuff. Swept my studio and organized. No one had dropped off any boxes so I didn’t work on much. I did make the tiniest microphone for a little stage set. It’s a seashell! I’m going to make a cord and an amp, as well as a stool and a glass of water to go along with the scene but I didn’t get a chance.

I went to the school and met with Don. Showed off the very first bronze I ever made, which is a bunny that casts a hand shadow, based on a comic I saw once.  I went up to get lunch and chatted with Jess through text for a while. Helped her pick out an outfit. My whole schedule was thrown off because we had a mandatory commencement meeting at noon. But I had time still. I had a soda, which was good but now I have cravings again. I don’t know how well this weening is going.

The meeting was super unnecessary. Literally all the information was emailable but its fine. It was nice to see all my classmates. We got a little bit of info about the time frame and what is expected from us, we get 4 tickets. I only need 3 though at this point. I’m not going to give up the 4th just yet, but yeah I think its just going to be 3 I need. They let all the MFA students leave while the undergrads voted for a commencement speaker. Who is going to be Jonathan from the people’s library, and he will do a very good job I’m sure. The MFA speaker is Dana and she’s wonderful so I’m pleased about that.

I went to bother Don some more. Got ready for our class. And class was good! They were real tired most of the day, the greyness outside probably didn’t help. During our show and tell a few of them showed music videos, very on brand music for those students. There was some really neat stuff. I showed them my bronze and they all seemed to get a kick out of it.

We worked on waxes and Don did some wood demos. I showed them the chop saw but I accidently hit one of them with a board and so I was a bit anxsious and so I rushed the demo a bit. And forgot that the chopsaw can cut on a miter so Don had to go in and show them. So I felt a little bit like a failure. And then when he asked me to put a new blade in the scroll saw something was wrong with it and he jokingly told the students I broke it but I didn’t! Someone else did! Lies and slander! And then I pulled to hard on my ring and broke my solder as I am want to do. Don was snarky with me today because I’ve been complaining but mostly in a joking manner. And mostly because Anders is always making me do stuff and I’ve been joking/not joking complaining about it. I also always do what he asks even if I’m complaining! Silly.

The rest of the day was fine. I weighed  most of their waxes and they are making some sweet stuff. I fixed the part of my wax that broke off. Did a few dips. I still have a lot to do though so I might have to come in this weekend. Which I didn’t want to do so I hope I can get a lot of dips in tomorrow to be ready by Tuesday.

I had to return a saw to the shop, and my one sculpture has been stored under the stairs for a while. I really needed to get that back to my studio so after class I quickly headed back to my studio to get my wagon. I ran into Frenchy and she said she loved my coat and so I was caught up in a conversation about how I got it for free when I was in undergrad and it was raining a little but it was all good. I was happy.

I got my piece and came back here, fixed my ring, and headed home.

Which is where I got that letter and got freaked out. I wrote out a budget but I’m still really scared. I just don’t have the money coming in to sustain myself and I don’t want to ask my family for money but I might have to. And it sucks. It just sucks. I hope that I get this camp job and find a second job for the summer somewhere. I just hate that I have to think about all of this.

But for now I’m just going to go make a sandwich and wash my face and go to bed. I have work tomorrow and were building the structure for my thesis piece. Which gets installed in one month. Theres just so much happening! I hope I can pull it together.

Goodnight everyone. sleep well.

hello everyone! for my humanities project at school, i wrote a song about the struggle with depression and watching somebody else suffer from it. the purpose of my project was to raise awareness for teen depression, especially, and raise money to donate to an organisation by the name of To Write Love On Her Arms.

i was inspired to write this song because of how prevalent the issue of depression is in our society and it is something i’ve struggled with not only personally, but watched others struggle through as well. this is for anyone who has suffered or is currently suffering from depression, anyone who’s had to watch another person struggle with it, or anyone who cares about the issue in general. it’s for all of you.

the song is available on bandcamp for purchase or if you just want to have a listen! all proceeds go to TWLOHA.

i hate when people think because they have kids they should get everything easier or for free. if you decide to have a child it is your job to take care of that child, not the government’s. don’t have 6 kids and then complain how you have no money… it’s not everyone else’s job to raise and pay for your children…

OK I HAVE MORE THOUGHTS ABOUT KIDS IN A REALISTIC POKEMON UNIVERSE

• if all these kids are homeless are there affordable/ state run inns and temporary housing centers in community areas for trainers?
• they gotta have their taxing system figured out perfectly to have worldwide state/govt funded (free!) healthcare
• Pokemon are able to understand human speech (to an extent) and the intelligence and temperaments of each species varies wildly
• THERAPY POKEMON
• online school courses must be extremely popular after a certain age (whatever the designated trainer age is I guess)
• kids that do cool performances utilizing their pokemon’s abilities at markets and gatherings to raise money for their travels
• are thieves and muggers and murderers still prevalent and how are they dealt with?
• if so there must be an extremely vigilant police force of some sort for it to be even close to safe for all these kids to be runnin around
• or hell maybe this universe is a dog eat dog world and its every 13 year old for themself
• either heavy weaponry doesn’t exist or gun laws are really strict
• it’s possible that people are just completely reliant on Pokemon for protection and attack
• I want stories based around young people who live in abusive homes and wait years to run away and begin a life of freedom with friends and Pokemon that love and care for them
• stories centered around youth found families and seeing the beauty of traveling and nature
• basically I want more realistic Pokemon world based stories PLEASE

Divination Services

[Ask box link]

I need to raise money to cover the travel costs (~500$) to get to my school everyday, so in lieu of that, these are the services I’m offering:

Tarot

Divination using a 78 pack of cards. Currently only using the Shadowscapes deck.

  • [EDIT] These are now $1 per card because these types of readings are too draining to be free.
  • However, if you would like to donate after I’ve done your reading as a thank you or something of the sort, I wont turn that down.

Guidelines:

  • General readings or specific questions are both welcome. Please, no health questions.
  • I wont be answering any “does [insert name here] love me/does [insert name here] care about me/ what does [insert name here] feel for me” UNLESS YOU'RE OFF ANON AND EVEN THEN IT WILL BE A CASE BY CASE BASIS.

Cartomancy

Divination using a deck of playing cards.

  • 1 to 3 cards are free/donation based. If you donate any amount, I will get to your reading first. Free readings get second priority but I will get to them.
  • Spreads larger than 3 cards are ranged $1-5. Rarely will it exceed 5$, and it will usually be around $2-3.

Guidelines:

  • General readings or specific questions are both welcome. Please, no health questions.
  • I will usually answer in 1 to 2 cards. This changes on a reading-to-reading basis.

Shufflemancy

Form of divination using the shuffling of songs and their lyrics to help answer questions.

  • Until I get some more practice, these are always free as well.
  • However, if you would like to donate after I’ve done your reading as a thank you or something of the sort, I wont turn that down.

Guidelines:

  • I wont be answering any “does [insert name here] love me/does [insert name here] care about me/ what does [insert name here] feel for me” UNLESS YOU’RE OFF ANON AND EVEN THEN IT WILL BE A CASE BY CASE BASIS.
  • SPECIFIC QUESTIONS ONLY.
  • Don’t forget to add the number of skips you want.

Pendulum

A weight on a string used to divine “yes/no” answers to questions. I will be using my amethyst necklace for this.

  • [EDIT] These are 50¢ per question, since I get a lot of pendulum questions, and I don’t want to make these too expensive.
  • However, if you want to donate more, thats great and I seriously appreciate it.
  • If I’m wrong, Ill will give you a refund (:

Guidelines:

  • Yes/no questions only.
  • I have the right to turn down a reading if I feel uncomfortable answering the question.
  • I wont be answering any “does [insert name here] love me/does [insert name here] care about me/ what does [insert name here] feel for me” UNLESS YOU’RE OFF ANON AND EVEN THEN IT WILL BE A CASE BY CASE BASIS.

Astragalomancy (Dice)

Divination using dice.

  • These are always free for now since I have had little practice in this area.
  • Like I’ve recited above, donations received after a reading has been done as a sort of ‘thank you’ will never be turned down.

Guidelines:

Terribly Awkward & Oblivious INTJ Things I've Said

Grandmother: You make sure you send one of your school pictures my way, okay dear?

Isaac: Why would I do that?

Person: Can you believe how much money we raised for the dance?

Isaac: We were raising money for a dance?

Person: Yes! Homecoming? Ringing a bell?

Isaac: We still have that?

Person: It’s for everyone, not just the underclassmen.

Isaac: Oh. I wouldn’t know. I never went after the first time.

Person: Of course you didn’t.

Girl who liked me: Hey, so I was wondering if you wanted to go see a movie this weekend.

Isaac: What movie?

Girl: *Insert movie title here*

Isaac: No thanks.

Girl: *Blocking my way* Well we could see-

Isaac: I have to go to math.

(Can I just say that I felt super bad about that one? I legit didn’t know she was asking me out, I promise.)

Friend: Oh! You should hear me sing!

Isaac: Why should I hear that?

(I’m so sorry about that, by the way! Haha, I swear I don’t mean to come off as… incommunicable.)

Friend: I think I know what those guys are laughing/cheering about over there.

Isaac: Oh. What is it?

Friend: I don’t want to say.

Isaac: Why? They can’t hear you.

Friend: What is something that guys want to lose in school? For social status.

Isaac: Don’t people try to gain things for social status?

Friend: No, like, intimately.

Isaac: People break up for social status?

Friend: No! Their… virginity.

Isaac: Oh. I never would have guessed that.

Isaac: People try to lose their virginity for social status? That’s stupid.

There will most definitely be more. I obviously haven’t listed them all. Plus, all I really ever have to do is open my mouth and something terribly blind will make its way into the conversation.

Friends with Mental Illness: I Need Your Help!

So I am in the veeeeeery early stages of starting my own nonprofit! It’s taken me quite a long time but my team and I are working on building our website.

Our eventual goal is to teach mental health classes as guest lecturers in public high schools that lack health education. I spent all four years as an undergrad doing this in Los Angeles and the need for health education–especially around taboo subjects–is dire. California’s educational system is absolutely in shambles and health classes have been cut from schools left and right.

So in an effort to raise both money and awareness, I am about to launch my art campaign featuring my designs that represent different mental illnesses! These designs will be sold on tote bags, posters, and shirts.

Now with each design, I want to feature testimonials from people who suffer from these illnesses. I want to really capture just how it feels to live with these illnesses. A testimonial only need be a paragraph or two long–you don’t have to submit a novel :)

Here’s an example:

As someone with BPD, I live in extremes: my sadness becomes depression, my worry becomes paranoia, and my anger becomes rage. My mood swings can be triggered by anything in my environment that suggests you hate me or that you plan on leaving me. I’m always watching for these signs, even when they don’t exist: maybe you take a long time to answer a text, maybe I see you with other people and assume you don’t want me around, maybe you are upset about something and I immediately assume it’s my fault. When my BPD decides you hate me, I’m thrown into an emotional maelstrom. I cannot imagine surviving without you, your love, our relationship. Sometimes I respond by cutting you out of my life to prevent you from leaving me; sometimes I cling even tighter to you and beg you to stay. And sometimes I resort to harmful behaviors as a desperate release from my pain. BPD makes it almost impossible for me to enjoy social relationships–one of the things that make life meaningful.

See? Not too bad. So for my first launch of this campaign I have have already gathered some testimonials for some of the illnesses but I am in DIRE need of testimonials for the following illnesses:

Eating Disorders
ADHD
Substance Use Disorder
Schizophrenia
OCD
Panic Disorder
Body Dysmorphic Disorder

I ESPECIALLY need help with Schizoaffective Disorder as I do not have a design yet for this and would really like to work with someone who has it. I want to do my best to accurately capture what Schizoaffective feels like SO PLEASE HELP ME.

I also plan to add more illnesses to my campaign to keep it as inclusive as possible so if you have any suggestions please let me know. I plan on keeping this an ongoing campaign.

So if you have personal experience with any of the above disorders please message me! I already have some testimonials for other disorders (like BPD for example) but I am open to additional testimonials of course :)


Thanks!!

Ok so my middle school literally did not have doors on the bathroom stalls but we have money for this military to come out and terrorize these protesters?

Every single chair in the cafeteria was different, but we have money for militia?

MY DAMN ENGLISH TEACHER CHARGED US TO PRINT OUR ESSAYS AT SCHOOL CAUSE NIGGAS HAVE NO PRINTER, NO MONEY/RIDE TO THE LIBRARY AND YALL BRINGING IN THE DAMN MILITARY!?!?!?

WE IN A DAMN BILLION DOLLAR DEFICIT YALL NIGGAS CUTTING EDUCATION AND YOU WANNA TALK ABOUT SOME MILITARY?

HOW ABOUT WE FIX THE NORTHSIDE/UPPER LAFAYETTE?!?!?

This is some grade A bullshit I just can’t even.

“Not usually,” Rachel said. “We’re raising money for our group. We do volunteer art projects for elementary kids ’cause they’re cutting art from the schools, you know? We do this once a month, take in about five hundred dollars on a good weekend. But I’m guessing you don’t want to talk about that. You’re a half-blood, too?”

“Shhh!” Annabeth said, looking around. “Just announce it to the world, how about?”

“Okay.” Rachel stood up and said really loud, “Hey, everybody! These two aren’t human! They’re half Greek god!”

Nobody even looked over. Rachel shrugged and sat down. “They don’t seem to care.”

“That’s not funny,” Annabeth said. “This isn’t a joke, mortal girl.”

“Hold it, you two,” I said. “Just calm down.”

“I’m calm,” Rachel insisted. “Every time I’m around you, some monster attacks us. What’s to be nervous about?”

“Look,” I said. “I’m really sorry about the band room. I hope they didn’t kick you out or anything.”

“Nah. They asked me a lot of questions about you. I played dumb.”

“Was it hard?” Annabeth asked.

“Okay, stop!” I intervened.

Hi all,

I’m going to be opening up emergency commissions. I’m currently a full time graduate student in the field of education. Because of Student Teaching, I’m unable to work and currently live entirely off of student loans, and some financial support from my father.

The thing is, my father is cutting off financial support as of August. His support covers my rent. My lease here goes until February of next year (6 months). After August I will be full time student teaching (40+ hours/week) with no way to support myself.

I will not have enough money from my student loans to cover rent as well as bills and food.

Thats where this comes in. I know it’s a long shot, but I’m going to see how much money I can possibly raise with commissions before September when I have to stop because of student teaching and school.

TL;DR: I’m not going to have enough money for rent for 6 months as of August because of school and being unable to work. Please help.

RIGHT NOW I am sticking to waist up shots. Talk to me privately about full body images and I may agree to it for an extra charge!

WILL DO:

  • Couples (extra charge per person)
  • Animal ears/tails are A-Ok!
  • OCs and Fan-Characters welcome!

WON’t DO:

  • NSFW. Sorry guys, I’m not good enough at this to feel comfortable charging for it
  • Full anthro - Same as above, I’m not experienced enough to ask for money for this
  • Mechs

Contact me at enkai2@msn.com to discuss! Payment will be through paypall invoice.

Please reblog if you’re not interested in purchasing, every little bit will help!

Chapter 3

During her pregnancy, Granny let her work every day after school as a waitress, allowing her to earn that extra money she needed to raise a child.  When she got closer to her due date, Granny wanted her to move behind the counter, but she refused because she would lose a huge amount of her tips.  She was stronger than she looked and being almost nine months pregnant wouldn’t stop her from serving a plate of chili fries to a customer…especially when that customer tipped generously. 

The diner was empty now, but earlier it had been packed with customers winding down after a long week.  Her feet were aching, her back was sore, but her pocket was heavy with tips so she was happy.  Tired…but happy.

The tables had been wiped down, the floors gleamed after a good mop and all the chairs were placed upside down on the tables.  All but the one she occupied with all her books and spirals spread out in front of her, as she poured over her notes.  Finals were coming up and she was determined to ace them.

Granny had already went up, leaving her alone in the diner with the lights on full to beat back the dark and to keep her awake.  It was just shy of midnight and she was dying to go up to the spare room Granny had gotten ready for her, but she made herself stick with it for at least another hour.

She was right in the middle of highlighting some key points of her notes when she heard the door open and jingle behind her. “We’re closed,” she said out loud without turning around.

“Then you should have locked the bloody door.”

Her back went up, her highlighter froze mid-stream and her heart twisted painfully in her chest.  She slowly turned in her chair, gripping the back of it for support and the sight of Killian nearly took her breath away.  It simply shouldn’t be allowed for a single human being to look this gorgeous…this…dangerous.

I asked my husband how I was going to raise the $5000 dollars to go to Nicaragua with Random Acts. His response? “No idea. Prostitution?”

Ah, yes. I can see the future now, sitting around a fire after helping build a school, with tons of inspiring, hardworking people, and Misha Collins says, “how did you raise the money to come on this trip?” And I just say, “my vagina.”
