Hello guys! My name is Lottie - which you probably know if you’re following me, and I’m writing this post to ask for help.
I’m going to try and keep it short, as I honestly don’t like much having to well, do that in the first place, but I don’t have another solution. I’m in Terminale - which is the last year of high school in France. We’re currently asked to pick what we want to do next year, mostly which college we’d like to go to. For the most part, the college I want is free, like most public ones in France, you just have a fee of 183 euros (about 250 dollars) to pay.
It shouldn’t in itself be a problem, as my parents can afford this and should actually pay for it since I’m underage. Thing is, I’ve been having problems with them for years just talking about this. Because, simply put, they don’t want me to do what I’ve picked next year (which is either studying the English language to be able to teach English or French in an English speaking country later on in life, or a nice thing I found near my place to study cinema and theater.). Both of these things interest me greatly, and are actually things related to the things I wish to do later on in life. But they want me to get into Law - which is definitely not something I want myself. We’ve gotten in fights over this, I’ve argued and heard pretty rough stuff. I decided to stop talking about this with my mother, as she can be sometimes pretty emotionally rough to me, and really manipulative. I wouldn’t call her abusive, but it’s really on the fence, and because of her, everything at home is already a bit toxic, which is why I need to feel at ease at school at least. It’s my escape, honestly.
I though found a way to come to an agreement with my father - whom at least tried to listen even if he wouldn’t oppose my mom like this, as he’s probably afraid everything will fall up on him again if he brings it all up. He basically told me that if I was able to pay the fee myself (the said 183 euros), he’d do his very best to convince my mother.
Since we had this talk, I’ve put up stuff about doing baby-sitting and helping people with English homework to make some money around my town, but didn’t really get any answer. In the end, this lack of answer is what pushes me to publish this now.
Honestly, even just a dollar or two would help. The donate button is in my sidebar, so, if you could just help it would really be amazing. Anything would help, really. Even if it’s just a dollar or two, really - anything helps. Litterally, if every follower of mine sent a dollar I’d be done before the end of the day. So really, if you can do such a thing for me, I’d really really appreciate it.
There’s not much I can offer in return for a donation. I can’t draw, while I kind of photoshop what I do isn’t the most perfect, but I’ve put a few things I’d be able to do under the cut - other than what I do usually on this RPH. If you donate, feel free to message me here and request something and it will be put first on my to-do list, truly. So, well, thank you for reading this. If you could reblog or signal boost this in some way, it really would be amazing. Thank you.

Note: This is just how I make gifs, it’s not necessarily the best, easiest, quickest, or most efficient way to make them - there are many different ways to make gifs, and this is what I have found works well for me.
I’ve finally gotten around to fixing the dashboard redirection bug in my sidebar fix! I’ve also added an option to have it only move the sidebar on the dashboard and not on other pages, and this can be enabled in the preferences. Check out the update instructions for how you can update your existing extensions.
