i have 500 hours in it for a reason

THIS IS GONNA GET A BIT WORDY SO BARE WITH ME ;w;

So @funkyhunkygrunklestans and I are planning on moving in together into our first apartment, in the Portland, Oregon area in the summer. One problem tho: I’m currently residing in Iowa. And traveling over 1,500 miles/ 26 hour drive with only a bedroom worth of stuff, and a cat, I’m gonna need some help. 

With this move, I would be in a better place, surrounded by supportive friends and I would no longer have to feel shitty due to my family’s toxic nature. Plus I would have a better job opportunity than what’s here in Iowa.

So here’s the nitty-gritty:

To cover everything ( Gas, Food on the trip, hotel, etc) is going to cost about

     $3,500 to $4500

The reason for the prices is because if I ship my stuff instead of getting a uhaul trailer, and getting a hitch installed unless i get a vehicle with a hitch, its going to cost more. But I feel like it would be safer than just adding a hitch and then having it fall off during the trip (this is only a fear but still).

Right now I have a some money but that’s going towards buying a cheap car. And then once I get the car, any of my paychecks I get from nowish to June will be going towards this move.

To see the details on prices, go here > LINK <

So this is what I want to do:

Starting next week I’m going to be holding commission art streams everyday. And during the time I don’t have commissions, I’ll be drawing whatever. The time I want to do streams are between 12 pm to 4 pm and 6 pm to 9 pm (these hours might change due to scheduling but I’ll make a post about it/tweet about it if it does happen)

COMMISSION PAGE RIGHT HERE

Another option is donations. And to make it a little fun, no matter how much is donated, I’ll draw a little doodle with your username (unless its anonymous) and have it on a “wall of fame” type of deal”. However if you donate a lot (as in over $80) Let me draw you something more than just a doodle.

To donate, send the amount youre going to donate to my paypal which is stefaniekurth@live.com

Also, if you want, if you want to help us have some essential stuff for our soon to be apartment, you can check out this nifty Apartment wishlist. Its has things we need like a crockpot, towels, strainers, lights, bookshelf etc.

If you can help me out with moving, and help us out with setting up, that would be super great ;w;

3/10 EDIT: I’VE ADDED A PAGE TO SEE WHAT PRICES IN DETAIL, AS WELL LOWER THE GOAL AMOUNT FOR NOW. 

What engineering school has done to me
  • Physics Professor: We'll be having a quiz at least once a week, which I expect you to come prepared for. If you're having any trouble, I expect you to spent at least several hours on your own before coming to me about it.
  • Me: Oh, of course.
  • Chemistry Professor: For the next test you will need to be able to recognize and complete over 100 different chemical equations.
  • Me: Well ok, that sounds reasonable
  • Math Professor: Please do a triple integral to determine the density of this cube when the density is proportional to its distance from the xy-plane.
  • Me: Psh, piece of cake.
  • English Professor: I'm giving you two days to write a 500 word short piece on a childhood experience of yours.
  • Me: whaaaaa.. .. . ... what does that even....
I'm too tired for this sh...

Every morning I sit in traffic for an hour to get to work.

I have very sensitive eyes when I first wake up and am very sleepy.
A truck decided to hang out just close enough to the butt of my car so that his LED headlights were reflecting off of my rear view mirror and side mirrors directly into my eyeballs.

This wasn’t the first time. I know it won’t be the last.

I was hung over so it just added to the irritation. There was no reason for this person to be so close to my behind.

I moved the rear view mirror so it wasn’t blinding me, but alas, the side mirror was still unbearable.

Cue the evil plot…
I spent the next 30+ minutes of touch and go traffic redirecting the beam of death-light directly back in his face.

When I finally got it positioned properly his entire cabin lit up! He kept blocking his eyes in horror.

I laughed maniacally as he backed away and kept his distance.

These screenshots were from a recent PM conversation I had with Dynamo.

Notes:

-These statements were disclosed via PM, but as Dynamo probably would have said the same to any other member, I see no issue with sharing them here

-The last image is from a different reply than the first three

-The specific members I expressed concerns about “getting off scot-free” were Romans and Kodiene- Dynamo assured me that they hadn’t, but showed no actual proof that he had done anything to them (for privacy reasons, if he’s to be believed, but I admit that I’m still concerned)

-Regarding the statements about minorities and majorities, to Dynamo’s credit, the number of members banned were in the 30s; on a good day, Feralfront can have over 500 visitors (to get that estimate, I looked at the member list, sorted by last activity, and counted the amount within 24 hours; on the day I measured (Saturday, ¾), there had been 1514, but that would have included banned members and subaccounts, so I divided it by 3- it’s a rough estimate, I’m aware, but it gets the point across)

Either way, spread this around- there may need to be a demonstration of some sort (I’m trying to figure something out, I’ll get back to you on the details), to show that the members that were banned can be reasonable if treated with even a modicum of respect. If we want to change Dynamo’s view on this whole situation, we can at least start by proving him wrong.

PSA

I just got a notice from the FBI.
It said I had been watching illegal porn, that I possessed and distributed child pornography.
It said my coordinates, my tablet user, and the device I was using.
It said that I could go to jail for 5-11 years for possession and distribution of illegal porn,
It said I could go to jail for 3-7 years for pirating.

I HAVE DONE NONE OF THIS.
I am 15.
I am an honors students.
I am in college.

This made me think that I would lose all of that.
That my entire life was basically gone; how would I get into a university with that on my record?
It said I was locked down for “security reasons” for 24 hours.
It said I had to pay a fine of $500 through pay pal.
This was my first clue that it may be false, but again, I’m 15 with my whole life ahead of me.
I was horrified that this may actually be real.
So I texted one of my best friends that was at homecoming, and even though he had better things to do, he talked to through the beginning of a panic attack.
After 15 or so minutes of nonstop crying and hyperventilating, I went outside to tell my mom what happened.
I was crying so much I couldn’t even talk.
It took five minutes to calm down enough to talk.

She looked it up on her computer, and found out that it was fake.
I just have a virus.
All I was doing was scrolling through my dash.

AND I GOT A MOTHER FUCKING VIRUS FROM IT.
IT SENT ME INTO AN ANXIETY ATTACK THAT TURNED INTO A PANIC ATTACK.
IM STILL NOT RECOVERED AND IT HAS BEEN HALF AN HOUR.

I had to reset and erase EVERYTHING just so I could access the Internet again; it completely locked me out with that pop up.

Please be careful. It attacks computers and mobile devices after you download a certain video program. I don’t know which one.
If you see anything saying:
• Owning illegal porn (then lists several)
• Watching and distributing child pornography
• Pirating (music, movies, etc.)
• Saying it’s from the FBI
• That you have been locked down for Security/Safety reasons for 24 hours
• That you must pay a fine of $200-$500
• That you must pay through PayPal

DON’T DO IT

The FBI doesn’t send notifications.
The FBI doesn’t have you pay through PayPal. You would be mailed a fine most likely.
The FBI would most likely not let you pay off a 3-7 or 5-11 year sentence.

Clicking the “OK” will also download child porn onto your device in some cases.

Just go to your setting and erase your browser history, then delete any video programs you may have.
Unless it’s something like Pinnacle or Sony Vegas pro that you actively paid for.
This program comes with video programs and especially attacks iOS and Android.

Watch out guys, I don’t want what happened to me happening to you.
If you have any questions, feel free to send me an ask.

Just a reminder to peeps never to do design contests where they only offer you several hundred dollars as a prize. I’ve seen contests where a big name company, nationally known held a rebranding/logo contest to college students and would have only paid them 500$. 

Thats what you would make -before taxes- working one full week at $12.50 an hour.

Stuff like that is what companies would normally pay thousands of dollars for minimum to rebrand, so don’t settle. Always read the fine print. Most contests I’ve seen, the artist gets shafted to some degree. Always consider the hours you need to put in, the value of the work you’re doing, and the value of the company (based on their size is the pay they’re offering stingy or reasonable?), and if you win or submit your work if they’ll get all copyright to it to do whatever they want with it. 

We’re back!

Steve: Hello, Tumblr!

Clint: Steve, we’re not saying hello to “Tumblr.” We’re saying hello to Emma and Mikala’s followers. 

Steve: What’s a ‘follower’? They’re not stalking these nice girls, are they?

Clint: What? Steve, no. Get with the times, old man. These people follow the girls’ online blog. We’re here to answer questions, remember? They’re celebrating 500 followers. 

Mikala (muffled, from a distance): Actually, we’re at 750 now!

Clint: Shhh, we shut you out for a reason! This is our blog now!

Steve: I don’t really think locking them in a closet was a good idea, Barton–

Clint: It’s only for a few hours… Maybe. Send us some questions, everyone! The more you send, the more likely we are to just keep the for blog ourselves. 

Steve: But we have to let them out sometim–

Clint: Shut up, Steve. This is my time to shine. 

Emma (muffled, from a distance): They’re answering questions at 4PM EST! Remember to blacklist ‘500 follower celebration’ to stop seeing these updates!
