i hope i can actually afford you

I never understood the stereotype that millennials are greedy and self-entitled. Like if you actually ask any millennial what they truly want in life at the moment I guarantee you it’s something along the lines of:

“I hope I can get an apartment with a working stove, a job that pays well enough that I can eat at least every other day, access to a car (let alone my own car) and a dog, but only if I can afford to feed it.”

Like?????

You wanna know why I think Will is the perfect person for Nico at this time?

Because he talks to Nico like he’s a real person. He doesn’t treat him one dimensional porcelain doll, or a dangerous monster. He doesn’t act like a slightly harsh tone will set him off or chase him away. He doesn’t use that light tone that people use with a scared animal. He doesn’t judge him by one bad experience. And he holds him to a higher standard than “I hope you don’t run away from me the moment I turn my back”.

He’s the only person in the entire series I can imagine actually asking Nico about his life and how he feels instead just of waiting around for him to magically become comfortable enough to talk about it.

It’s a kindness no one else in their universe affords him.

Hey guys, I’m sure you’re tired of seeing stuff like this but if you could please just take a moment to read this I promise I’ll try to keep it brief <3

For the past 5 months I have been the sole provider for my partner and myself;

that is to say - only I have a job (part-time, just barely above minimum wage) and am paying for rent ($600/month), utilities ($75-$150/month), groceries, and the needs for our three lovely cats. My partner is autistic and finishing up their computer science degree with an unpaid internship, and doesn’t have the energy to work another paying job, while I myself have 3-5 mental disorders (depending on which therapist/psychiatrist you ask) on top of undiagnosed autism that also prevent me from working full-time. (not to mention that both of us are trans which makes it stupidly difficult to find decent employment anyway) While their parents do send us $200/month to help out, it just isn’t enough to cut it.

Three years ago I had to use my credit card to cover the security deposit on a house we rented with some friends who assured me they would pay me back. They never did, so for the past 2 ½ years I’ve been floundering in my credit card debt. I am on a payment plan where I pay $25 every month but it barely covers the interest accrued, and even that $25 I can barely even afford (the automatic payment has bounced 5 times in the past year alone)

And on top of all that I recently received a statement from the IRS claiming I owe them back the paltry refund I got to cover my school supplies for the 2015 school year.

I’ve already looked into challenging my debt, but because I didn’t buy my software and textbooks through the college, and was also too young and stupid to save the receipts, I have no way to prove that I did actually deserve the refund I got.

I’m hoping I can raise a total of $1250 to cover these two expenses just so my debt is less crushing.

That’s not even including the rent for April which I’m very doubtful I’ll be able to afford. It would mean the world to me if you could send whatever you can manage to part with as all this financial stress is impeding my partner and my own ability to cope with our situation.

HC for when the RFA finds out MC is a Vegetarian

oh this was a fun one to do! i’m actually a vegetarian so i hope this is accurate lolol. i mean its accurate to my experiences but i know everyone’s experiences are different! hope you enjoy!

Yoosung:

-At first he’s concerned

-He’s heard that being vegetarian is expensive and he doesn’t know if he can afford to make you food

-Once you tell him that it’s relatively cheap (and send him some vegetarian college student resources) he’s all on board

-Won’t go vegetarian himself but any time he cooks for you he triple checks that you can eat it

-Does start eating healthier by your example

-(oh who am I kidding you guys eat oreos and soda while you’re in your 5th hour of LOLOL)

Zen

-At first he’s like “but you’re beautiful you don’t need to diet”

-You glare and explain that it’s not a diet

-Once he sees how important your food choices are to you, he stops asking questions and just lets you eat what you want

-Starts eating more vegetarian because you cook all the time

-Perks of a vegetarian s/o, basic knowledge of cooking (at least usually)

-His director loves you, Zen’s never eaten better

-(fish shaped bread is vegetarian so he always gets you a lot of it)

Jaehee

-She’s never really thought about her food choices

-Her diet is “available at the convenience store or as take out”

-But once you guys are running the coffee shop she realizes she has no idea how to actually eat healthy

-So you jump on the opportunity

-She’s never been condescending to vegetarians, but she did believe that it was really difficult to stick to

-So you’re constantly delicious vegetarian food for you guys to eat

-You send her links to vegetarian baking tutorials and vegetarian things to eat at restaurants

-She starts trying to get you to sell some of your dishes at the cafe

Jumin

-The first time you eat dinner with him he has his chef make steak

-When the plate comes out you awkwardly tell him

-He commands you for helping animals

-He is concerned for your health

-Makes you meet with a nutritionist to make sure that you’re not malnourished (Jumin pls)

-If him eating meat makes you uncomfortable 100% quits cold turkey

-And if the media makes a fuss you best believe he gets PISSED

-”I’m sorry that my wife’s food choices apparently affect you so much. I thought you’d be estatic she’s not eating animals, considering you’re a pig yourself.”

Seven

-”Are Honey Buddha chips vegetarian?”

-Yes Seven

-”What about Doctor Pepper?”

-Yes Seven

-I mean technically he’s vegetarian cause that’s all he eats

-Get ready for constant vegetable puns

-One of his favorite hobbies is grabbing a random vegetable out of the fridge and coming up with a pun for it.

-His proudest moment was making headphones out of beets

-”Hey MC check out these sick beats”

Shakarian: Post ME1

Imagine if Shakarian had happened late ME1/PostME1, how would have Garrus reacted to her death?


Garrus’ blue eyes were transfixed on the vid screen.

Breaking news. The Alliance has just reported that Commander Shepard is formally considered killed in action while scouting for Geth in the Attican Traverse. A memorial service will be held tomorrow to honor the actions of the recent Savior of the Citadel…

Coffee had spilled out of his mug, scorching his hand but he didn’t care. His mind was travelling at a million light years per minute, no Shepard couldn’t have been in the Traverse, she could be somewhere in space, she’s a survivor…

“Vakarian!” his superior barked, “You gonna bring me that coffee or what?”

He didn’t answer at first. The words resembled an echo, a memory trying to bubble up to the surface. With his eyes still glued to the screen, Garrus murmured, “I’m taking a few days off.”

“What?”

“You heard me.” He snapped back into the moment like a lightning rod, shoveing the coffee into his boss’ outstretched hand. “I have something to take care of.”

Garrus didn’t care if he ever worked at C-Sec ever again.

Please, don't move to that moldy apartment! You might survive without asthma or other infections. But think about ethan! He's living every single day breathing that molded air in the apartment. You sometimes can go out and have fresh air but he can't. Mold is dangerous, it can't be washed away. Pls, think one more timebefore moving. If you get sick there's a possibility you have to give up all your stuff 'cos there's mold everywhere. Happened to my brother, trust me, I know. All the best xoxo

Hey! Thank you, i know this message comes from a place of concern. I’ve had two different people look at the mold since my last post, who have both said, it’s no biggie, and i’ve sent a very lengthy message to my landlord who said he would be working on it. 
However, beyond that, this is the appartment I can afford. I know youtubers aren’t always so clear with what kind of money they make, and it may seem like we live lavish lives, but the yellow, one bedroom apartment with a little bit of mold in the bathroom is what I can afford, and sustain as of right now. 
Plus, Pennsylvania doesn’t recognize mold as a reason to break the lease, unless it creates an inhabitable living space, which, in my situation, it does not. 
It took me a few weeks to gather up funds for the first, last and security, and my landlord was really cool with me showing him what little proof I do have of income (Youtubers are paid monthly, based on views, so my payment is inconsistent, and I don’t have ‘pay stubs’) 
My friend even took off the utility panel, or whatever the little trap door behind the tub is called, and told me the mold had not traveled through to the other side of the wall.
In philadelphia, for my budget, this is what you get. I don’t have any issue with fixing up my apartment, and actually hope that if I move out before my lease, one of my friends can take my apartment from me, since it IS very affordable considering the neighborhood and location, and honestly some sort of hidden gem despite the mold. I know a lot of people have told me, “Don’t put any work into this apartment, it’s a waste of time!” but I really do like DIY and home improvement, and patching up some drywall, and repairing some mold damage sounds like something that would empower me. ESPECIALLY if it meant benefiting me, and whoever takes my apartment after me. 
Through tears, and powerful feelings of regret, there is an overall sense of accomplishment i’ve noticed in the last few days, and even now, talking about the mold, or shuffling through messages similar to this one which suggest harm to my cat; i feel better, and look forward to everything ahead of me. 

I'm sorry

Firstly, I’d really like to apologize for the lack of art lately. At least, the lack of decent quality art. I don’t know if the crappy scribbles count towards anything. Also for the lack of fics and fic updates. I haven’t been able to write very well ever since things started going super fast down hill. (Dyslexia meet starvation.)

But, I really am sorry. I know that’s why you follow my blog, I know people are getting sick of my personal posts, I know people are switching fandoms or losing interest in stuff. I know, it’s a mess, and my blog is slagging behind being useless. Trust me, I understand being useless. 😞

I don’t know what to say, though. I’m stuck. Things will not get better in their own, and the professionals are slow to help, if they help at all.

If only one good thing came from the most recent stint at the stupid hospital, It’s that I now know why I get so messed up when drawing at the computer these past few months. I’m hoping, after the MRI (I’m going to panic myself to death in there. Glass plastic box of emotion), that they’ll actually do something about ASAP, because I really really really miss drawing and colors and stuff. I mean. If I can even afford the MRI. I don’t know. This is crazy and I feel like shit.

Anyway, my sincere and deepest apologies for… me, I guess. I really do hope that I can bring you guys art and writing and silly stuff as soon as possible. I hope, but I can’t promise.

Sorry.

The Orbiting Human Circus (of the air)
Episode 9 (Julian Koster’s Q&A): 

«One big question that got asked and I think is pretty neat is…were there things that were in season one, or episodes that didn’t make the cut for different reasons. 

The answer to this question is YES, there are a lot of things. And several people asked, if I could, if those things existed, if I could tell you about some of them. So I thought that would be kind of fun. And one, that I really like that the Janitor told was actually about… I think this is gonna possibly scandalize some people but it is in-universe, so I think that’s okay. But anyway. 

One thing that Janitor told about was… these visits of a special friend of John Cameron’s to the set of the Orbiting Human circus, to the ballroom. A very special friend of his, named Carrie… well, his real name isn’t Carrie, his real name is Archibald. John Cameron calls him Archibald, that’s how the janitor knew this, but everybody else knew him as Carrie. And he is a very special friend of John’s. As a matter of fact, there are a lot of rumors that they are VERY-very special friends. And… the Janitor did see… something that reinforced that idea very strongly very strongly one time. Something innocent, but something that led on that they are more than friends. 

 And everyone in the OHC would freak out of course when this fellow would come visit, which would be a few times a year, because he is a movie star. And so everybody was kind of dazzled. And the Janitor had seen him in movies. The Janitor’s, one of the Janitor’s favorite movies was called ‘Holliday’. And Carrie was in this movie and you know. The janitor was just completely star-struck… whenever he’d come around. And he was just very-very sweet person, and he was very-very elegant, and handsome. I don’t think the janitor had a crush on him, or anything like that, no, but he was just incredibly objectively handsome, which… you know. And kind. And so when he would visit it would always be a very interesting thing. He kind of fascinated janitor, and watching Archibald and John together was very fascinating for janitor. 

And… and so there are different stories associated with his visits. And hopefully some of it would make it into season two. I hope I haven’t just ruined season two for you. I mean it’s not, really. It’s a small thing. But there was some… as a matter of fact, the jacket that John Cameron gave to the Janitor was actually Carrie’s, that was something that Carrie has left behind. Carrie always leaves his clothes everywhere. He’s very forgetful… and being a movie star he can afford lots and lots of jackets. That was actually where the jacket that John Cameron passed down to the janitor came from».

A few words about photos: 

There is John Cameron Mitchell, a director, actor, singer, an overall amazingly talented man who also happened to be a voice actor of John Cameron, our beloved dramatic host. 

And there is Cary Grant, one of the greatest male stars of Golden Age Hollywood cinema, an actor so famous he probably still doesn’t need introduction. An actor whose given name was Archibald Alexander Leach and who played in dozens of great movies one of which is our Julian’s favorite “Holiday”. 


So what do we get here? A dazzling time-bending couple which all the OHC fandom should cherish. 


 ~ 


PS - John is a person from underground and Cary is long gone and I was just ridiculously lucky to know both of them beforehand. So if you’ve never heard of them, let me be your guide and suggest you an amazing rock musical «Hedwig and the angry inch»(2001) & hilarious «Arsenic and Old Lace» (1944). 

The first is about a transgender woman traveling through her past and future in the search of true love… or self. Mythical references included. And in general it’s just the best thing I know. 

 The second is a black comedy about adorable grannies who happen to be… serial killers. Cary is the cutest there and humor is absolutely surreal. Amazing experience, don’t miss it.

it’s so important to have unconditional positive regard from someone, just one person. one person who never thinks you’re bad, but always sees the best in you, who would go to bat for you regardless of the circumstances. having the reassurance that there’s someone on your side who is always going to love and support you and pick you up makes or breaks people. this also closely relates to criminology (just a crack pot theory of mine) in that the absence of this figure is a direct contributor to not only crime but also conviction, because the ability for a someone to actually exercise this is a privilege few have in that not every person like this can afford to intervene, often quite literally. it is also a privilege to have someone like this at all, when everyone should have somebody. I hope I can be a source of unconditional positive regard and a reliable support to my friends. Idk I was just thinking about this.

Anyways. Carl Rogers is the man and hope is everything, y'all. Be good to each other.

Warnings: A bit of angst and violence 

Word Count: 1177


“Hi, Dan!”

“Hey, Janet!” Dan smiled at the receptionist as he walked down the hospital hallway. He had reached the point where he knew all the receptionists by name, as he’d been coming after school every day for the last week to see Phil.

“Morning!” Dan said, walking into Phil’s room and beaming at the Saturday morning sun shining through the window.

“Morning, Dan.”

“How’s it going?”

“I’m better. I don’t think I’m ready to leave though.”

“Oh. When do you think you’ll get out?”

“Right now.” Dan heard a voice behind him and whirled around to see who he assumed to be Phil’s parents standing there. Dan hadn’t seen either of Phil’s parents once the entire week, which honestly made him a bit sick. Their son could have died and they didn’t even bother to come visit.

“Come on, boy. We’re going home. No more expensive medical care for you.” Phil’s father spoke harshly as he walked over and tore the IV out of Phil’s arm. Phil shrieked and steam blew from Dan’s ears.

“Stop it, you’re hurting him!” Dan tried to pull Phil’s father off of him, but an elbow collided with his jaw and he was knocked backwards, crashing into the wall and falling to the ground.

“Dan!” Phil cried out. Dan put his fingers to his lips, pulling them back to see blood.

“That your little boy toy, son?” There was insanity in his eyes as he tore off Phil’s hospital bracelet.

“Lay off him!” Dan regained his strength and was standing behind Phil’s father, using all the courage he could muster to eek these words out.

He turned to Dan, walking right up to him. “I can do what I want with him. He’s my son.”

“Maybe he is, but you shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near him.” Dan smelled alcohol and marijuana on his breath. “You’re a drugged out alcoholic who should never be allowed to care for any child, especially Phil. He deserves better than you.”

Suddenly Dan was pinned against the wall. “Listen kid. You don’t tell me how to raise my son.”

“What on earth is going on in here?” All heads turned to the doorway, where a doctor was stood. Dan was released immediately as Phil’s father went to shake the doctor’s hand.

“I’m Phil’s father.” The doctor shook his hand slowly, looking the man up and down. Upon noticing his dingy t-shirt and jeans, he pulled his hand back.

“And where have you been all week?”

“I was never notified he was here.” Dan could tell he was trying to sound civil despite his anger and high.

“We attempted to reach you multiple times.”

“Well, it didn’t work.” Dan looked at the doctor, who was obviously suspicious of Phil’s father. Dan assumed he could also smell the drugs on his breath.

“And what happened to his IV and bracelet?” The doctor glared at Phil and back to his father.

“I’m taking him home. It’s too expensive here.”

“I advise against that.”

“Well, I’m doing it anyway. Come on, boy.”

“But I can’t walk?” Phil pleaded with his father, attempting to talk some sense into the man.

“Get him a wheelchair, doc, we’re leaving.” The doctor rolled his eyes and left, coming back a few minutes later with a wheelchair.

“He’ll be using this for quite a while. Don’t you want me to show him how to work it?”

“He can figure it out himself. Let’s go, boy.” Phil reluctantly and painfully eased himself into the wheelchair.

“I really don’t think you should…” Phil’s father paid no attention to the doctor, simply putting his middle finger up in the air and wheeling Phil out of the room. It isn’t until then that Phil’s mother emerges from the corner in which she’d been standing the entire time.

“I’m sorry, doctor… You too…” She gestured towards Dan.

“Dan.”

“Dan. We’re divorced for good reason. His temper is horrible. Don’t worry about him. Phil’s going home with me, not him. We’re only taking him now because we really can’t afford to have him here any longer. I’ll make sure to take as good care of him as I possibly can.” Dan exhaled when she said this, relieved that Phil was going somewhere safe. His own body ached from attempting to stand up to the man; he was terrified for Phil if that was where he was going.

“I hope you know I’m reporting him for the scent of marijuana on his breath.”

She smiled at him. “I actually believe that’s what’s best for all of us.” Turning on her heel, she followed Phil and his father out the door. Numb, Dan caught up with them.

“Well, Phil, I guess you’re checking out.”

Phil smiled up at Dan. “I guess I am.”

“What’re you doing here?” The bad-tempered man was particularly grumpy, Dan noticed.

“My mom’s waiting outside for me. I’m leaving, just like you.” Phil’s father rolled his eyes and he and Phil’s mother completed the check-out process. Walking outside, Dan waved goodbye to Phil and started heading off towards his mom’s car. Before he could get in, he heard grunts coming from behind him. Turning around, he found Phil’s father yelling.

“I’m taking him!”

“Why in hell would you take him? You’re both drunk and high off your ass and he’s already hurt enough! I’m taking him. At least that way he’ll be safe.” He attempted to wheel Phil away but she tore him off of the handles of the wheelchair, knocking it over. Phil winced as his broken arm and leg hit the blacktop. Dan ran over to him, setting up the wheelchair.

“I’ve got you…” Dan did the best he could to lift Phil up onto the wheelchair as his parents argued. He took off running through the parking lot, pushing Phil in front of him. “Where’s your mom’s car?”

“Over there!” Dan ran Phil to his mother’s car, throwing the passenger door open and helping him in. He folded up the wheelchair and tossed it in the back seat.  

“Lock the doors and only open them for you mom,” Dan said frantically as he shut the door. Phil locked the car and opened his window. “Text me as soon as you can, okay Phil?”

“Don’t worry. I will. Thanks Dan. You really saved me there. Nobody’s ever stuck up to by dad like that. He has a lot of problems and frankly my mom’s a bit scared of him.”

“I’m just glad you’re okay.” Dan smiled at his boyfriend, still covered in bandages, yet as beautiful as ever.

“You too. I love you, Dan.”

“I love you too.” Dan leaned in the window and planted an abrupt kiss on Phil’s lips before hearing the older boy’s arguing parents’ voices drawing nearer. “Roll up the window. I’ll see you later.” Dan took off, sprinting to his own mom’s car. Flinging open the door and hopping into the passenger seat, Dan lolled his head back, holding onto hope that Phil would be safe. Hope was all he had left.

Dear Scara,

Not many people can actually afford to give back even a fraction of what you have given everyone else. Times have gotten tough, specially for you, and I’m sure this goes for a lot of us when I say this.

Thank you.

Thank you for all the help and support you have given the site.

Hello! Im a big fan of your gouache paintings and was inspired to paint outside but i seem to struggle with on how to travel with them. I was wondering how you bring gouache outside when you paint??

Hello! Thank you so much for your kind words :) 

I did a previous post on what my materials are. I have a really basic set up. I usually try to keep everything really small and portable. I bring only a few set of colors that I need and a light metal palette that folds. The size of my paper is small too, usually half of an 8.5 x 11 paper; I sometimes cut it to even smaller sizes. When it is hot outside I do bring a small water spray bottle that I can spray on the paint that prevents it from drying out. A small glass jar for water and you are good to go! You can find very affordable equipment from dick blick :) 

Some of the people I paint with bring easels with them. There is a company that makes amazing small portable easels that are great of outdoor paintings. You can check out the links below to see which sizes you prefer. The ARE pricey but I  am sure you can get ones that are way cheaper. My setup is so discounted compared to all my friends :D I actually don’t use an easel, i feel more comfortable on a the ground. 


I hope that helps! Have fun painting!

Braxiatel conducted his first overtures two days after Narvin sabotaged Project Alpha. Narvin hadn’t considered it sabotage—sabotage typically meant one party gaining an advantage, getting the upper hand, being in competition. No, no, Narvin hadn’t considered shutting the project down sabotage—he’d considered it good judgement. Glower hadn’t shared that opinion.

hi guys!! i’m looking for ways to make money this summer on top of my job so i can afford to go to europe next year!! if i were to open an etsy shop for bracelets, art work, stationary and other homemade stuff, would you guys actually purchase??

i just wanna know since this would be a lot of work and i would want to make sure i would actually be making money.

message me your input!!!!
(it would not be too expensive do not worry!)

As a college student, I know how difficult it can be to eat healthy, and it’s very easy for me to get tempted into buying soda and other junk food. I do it way more often than I should. However, temptation isn’t the only issue college students face when they try to eat healthy food. Many students feel like they can’t afford to eat healthy foods. The point of this post isn’t to be preachy and claim if you can’t find the money to eat healthy you’re just not trying enough because that’s not true. Eating healthy on a budget can be difficult especially when you’re bombarded by fad diets with expensive food. I hope you can all use this post to afford to eat healthier.

DON’T

1. Don’t buy into fad diets. I can’t stand the idea of “trendy food.” The first time I heard someone talk about food as a trend I wanted to punch them in the face. Food is not trendy; it shouldn’t be a fad. It is sustenance! Moreover, these fad diets like paleo or primal or gluten-free when you don’t actually need gluten-free food make the price of these foods skyrocket.

2. Don’t buy organic. Organic food is usually 3 times the cost of non-organic and has very few documented health benefits. If we only ate organic food, even more children would go starving than already do. You don’t need it, especially if you can’t afford it.

3. Don’t eat out very often. Eating out can be terrible for your budget because even if you eat out at the most inexpensive places, McDonald’s for example, those costs really add up. Personally, I’m terrible about how often I eat out because I have a really busy schedule. Typically I eat out at these places because I feel like I don’t have time to prepare my food. Lately, I try to eat out only once a week at an inexpensive place that I really enjoy, as opposed to McDonald’s which is very inexpensive but I don’t really enjoy.

4. Don’t eat on campus very often. Eating on campus is almost as expensive, if not more, than eating out. If you have special discounts or your campus has inexpensive food then don’t worry about it. But I know that my campus has really expensive food with really low quality yet some people eat there every single day.

5. Don’t buy too much. I also have a really big problem with this one. Sometimes I buy more food than I can reasonably eat. I end up throwing food away when it goes bad which makes me feel terrible about all the money and food I wasted.

6. Don’t buy very many drinks. I’m not just talking about alcohol either. People may argue that soda is way cheaper than organic, all-natural smoothies, but you know what’s better for you and free in most places? Tap water. Alcohol is really expensive and really bad for you. You should really restrict your alcohol intake and really try to restrict how many other drinks you buy. Even most juices and smoothies aren’t actually good for you. Odwalla drinks and an average glass of orange juice have about as much sugar as a can of Coke.

DO

1. Buy as many fruits and vegetables as you can eat. Fruits and vegetables are relatively cheap, as long as you’re buying the cheaper, non-organic fruits and vegetables. Buy whatever is cheapest that week. If you love asparagus but it costs 5 dollars that day maybe you should skip it, but if the price goes down to 2 dollars get as much as you can eat.

2. Try to prep your meals in advance. I have saved so much time and money by prepping my meals a week in advance. I’ve learned that if you have some decent tupperware and a running fridge meals will last an entire week or more. By setting aside one day a week to make all of my meals, I have avoided eating out a lot, and my meals are always delicious because I give myself enough time to properly prepare them.

3. Figure out the right portion sizes for you. I don’t mean that you should try to restrict calories. I am a huge believer in the idea that you should eat what feels good for your body, in other words, portion size is not a one size fits all kind of thing. However, once you know just how much you can eat you won’t have to throw any food away.

4. Listen to whatever it is your body is telling you. I know it sounds silly, but I spent so long ignoring the signals my body was giving me. If every time you eat red meat your stomach gets a little upset maybe you should try not eating it. If you’re getting dizzy after not eating for a few hours, you probably need to eat. If you’re feeling dehydrated goddamnit drink some water (I’m still terrible about staying properly hydrated).

5. Carry a bottle of water with you everywhere. Again, I know this sounds silly, but if I don’t have a bottle of water with me I will just straight up forget to drink water. Carrying a water bottle makes it so hydration is literally always at your fingertips.

6. Try to buy food at the dollar store or the cheapest possible stores in your area. I know so many people, usually affluent people but I digress, that turn their nose up at the dollar store or other inexpensive stores. I think it’s just plain stupid to buy literally the exact same product at a higher price because you don’t like a particular store. It just seems silly to me.

7. Try some generic brands. I’m not going to lie there are certain things where the name brand just tastes better, but I aways try the generic brand. Most of the time you won’t be able to taste the difference. If you can taste the difference and don’t care for it, you can always switch back to the name brand product.

MOST IMPORTANTLY:

Acknowledge that health is not one size fits all. These tips have helped me eat healthier. They may not work for you because you have a different lifestyle or health needs than I do. Listen to your body to figure out what it is that YOU need, not me or anyone else. Look at your schedule or fridge space and figure out if it’s even possible for you to prep your meals in advance. Figure out if your campus’ food is cheap enough that you can eat there almost every day. Figure out how many fruits and vegetables and meat you need in your diet. Most importantly, figure out what works for you.

I hope this helps!

yesss! I’d love to move to somewhere else, somewhere where I could maybe get a chance to actually work in the art industry! Not for college tho, as much as I’d like to, I wouldn’t be able to afford it :’D

I could only hope maybe decades from now, future me has saved enough money to move somewhere nice and have a stable career and a little apartment with 2 cats

Hello, I identify myself as nonbinary ftm trans bisexual. I'm going to the cruise for the week in July . Bikinis or feminine swimwear make me dysphoric . Do you where I can buy gender neutral swim wear for affordable cheap prices? Also I tried overplay but they are expensive. Thank you

Heya,

I don’t actually know any specialised people who sell gender nutral swimwear but today I got a pair of mens swimshorts in big size that were only €3.50 (I have very large hips) and I’m going to wear it with a sports shirt or a sports bra.

Hope this helped but if anyone has an actual place please comment!

After months of procrastination I decided that the time has finally come to actually start selling some of my art on redbubble, at Sleepinatincans :D

I’ll add more designs soon but you can never have too many notebooks right? :3, Also, if you have anything special in mind, any favorite piece or product. Let me know and I’ll add that as well and if you can’t afford anything and want to support me, reblogging this is extremely helpful <3, 

Thank you lovlies and I hope each and everyone of you have a great day/night <3 

Hey guys, boy, do I have a favour to ask-

I’m currently really in a tight spot with money right now while looking for another job, to the point where I’m struggling to live on £30 a month (why is food so expensive????). I also have a convention coming up that travel and ticket have been paid for and are non-refundable, but I cannot currently afford accommodation. That’s four nights of staying on the streets in a town I’ve never been to before, and that terrifies me.
Its really the worst.
So commissions are currently open.
I have never actually done commissions through tumblr before, but I’m really hoping you guys can help me out.

These will be done in slots, and I will be doing ten slots at a time!
If you have any questions please just contact me! :3
Even just sharing this post is a huge help, thank you all so much <3
